Help with tray icon message

7 posts in this topic

Hi every1,

I was wondering how I could have the tray icon pop up a little message if $handle is minimized?

Regards.

Func status()
    $win_state = WinGetState($handle)
    If BitAND($win_state, 16) Then
    ; tray icon message
    EndIf
EndFunc

Check out TrayTip() in the help file. The only reason why the tray balloon wouldn't work is if you disable the tray icon for your script or if the user killed all balloon tips via the registry.

Edit: fixed typo

Thanks for the info Jeemo,

I tried this code but it didn't work, any help?

EDIT: I forgot to add that I'm using AdlibEnable("script_state").

Func script_state()
    $win_state = WinGetState($handle)
    If BitAND($win_state, 16) Then
        TrayTip(@ScriptName, $status, 10)
    EndIf
EndFunc

I'm not certain, but I think that the problem is that your TrayTip() call is within a function that runs at the mercy of Adlib (I've never used Adlib, hence my uncertainty). From what I read about it, it should only call your script_state function when an "unhandled" error occurs - minimizing a window would not be considered an error.

Your original post looks like it was spot on except for missing the call to TrayTip(). Try something like this:

$handle = WinGetHandle("My Target Window")

Func status()
    $win_state = WinGetState($handle)
    If BitAND($win_state, 16) Then
    TrayTip(@ScriptName, $status, 10)
    EndIf
EndFunc

While 1
    status()
WEnd

The call to status() should be within a tight loop so that it'll respond as soon as the window becomes minimized.

If your Tray Tip doesn't pop up, then try swapping it out with something that you know will work, like msgbox, and see if that's responsive.

I hope this helps. I apologize if it doesn't, it's pretty late for me and I'm a bit foggy. I'll look for your reply in the morning.

Thanks again for your input Jeemo,

But unfortunately after changing a few things around the script still wouldn't pop up a message when i minimized the window. To my understanding using AdlibEnable will always check every 250ms (by default) a function so my script_state function should always be checked no matter what is happening. Here's the full script, maybe it will help.

Regards.

HotKeySet("^{HOME}", "start")
HotKeySet("^{END}", "finish")
AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
AutoItSetOption("TrayIconHide", 1)
Global $handle = WinGetHandle("classname=GxWindowClassD3d")
Global $status = "idle"
If @error Then
    MsgBox(16, "Error", "win not found")
    Exit
EndIf
AdlibEnable("script_state")
While 1
   Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func start()
    $status = "running"
    While 1
        $unique = Random(1, 4, 1)
        If $unique = 1 Then
            ControlSend($handle, "", "", "{RIGHT DOWN}")
            Sleep(100 + Random(1, 50, 1))
            ControlSend($handle, "", "", "{RIGHT UP}")
            ControlSend($handle, "", "", "{LEFT DOWN}")
            Sleep(100 + Random(1, 50, 1))
            ControlSend($handle, "", "", "{LEFT UP}")
            Sleep(200000 + Random(5000, 15000, 1))
        ElseIf $unique = 2 Then
            ControlSend($handle, "", "", "{LEFT DOWN}")
            Sleep(100 + Random(1, 50, 1))
            ControlSend($handle, "", "", "{LEFT UP}")
            ControlSend($handle, "", "", "{RIGHT DOWN}")
            Sleep(100 + Random(1, 50, 1))
            ControlSend($handle, "", "", "{RIGHT UP}")
            Sleep(200000 + Random(5000, 15000, 1))
        EndIf
    WEnd
EndFunc

Func script_state()
    $win_state = WinGetState($handle)
    If BitAND($win_state, 16) Then
        TrayTip(@ScriptName, $status, 10)
    EndIf
EndFunc

Func finish()
    Exit
EndFunc

Ahhhh, I found the problem. Try this:

HotKeySet("^{HOME}", "start")
HotKeySet("^{END}", "finish")
AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
;AutoItSetOption("TrayIconHide", 1)
Global $handle = WinGetHandle("classname=GxWindowClassD3d")
Global $status = "idle"
If @error Then
    MsgBox(16, "Error", "win not found")
    Exit
EndIf
AdlibEnable("script_state")
While 1
   Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func start()
    $status = "running"
    While 1
        $unique = Random(1, 4, 1)
        If $unique = 1 Then
            ControlSend($handle, "", "", "{RIGHT DOWN}")
            Sleep(100 + Random(1, 50, 1))
            ControlSend($handle, "", "", "{RIGHT UP}")
            ControlSend($handle, "", "", "{LEFT DOWN}")
            Sleep(100 + Random(1, 50, 1))
            ControlSend($handle, "", "", "{LEFT UP}")
            Sleep(200000 + Random(5000, 15000, 1))
        ElseIf $unique = 2 Then
            ControlSend($handle, "", "", "{LEFT DOWN}")
            Sleep(100 + Random(1, 50, 1))
            ControlSend($handle, "", "", "{LEFT UP}")
            ControlSend($handle, "", "", "{RIGHT DOWN}")
            Sleep(100 + Random(1, 50, 1))
            ControlSend($handle, "", "", "{RIGHT UP}")
            Sleep(200000 + Random(5000, 15000, 1))
        EndIf
    WEnd
EndFunc

Func script_state()
    $win_state = WinGetState($handle)
    If BitAND($win_state, 16) Then
        TrayTip(@ScriptName, $status, 10)
    EndIf
EndFunc

Func finish()
    Exit
EndFunc

The only difference between the above code block and what you posted is that line 4 has bee commented out...

The only reason why the tray balloon wouldn't work is if you disable the tray icon for your script...
