WinTray v1.6

Hi everyone!

WinTray creates an icon in System Tray and hides the minimized window from the taskbar. To put any window in the System Tray just hold down the Shift key when minimizing the window.

System requirements:

Windows XP; Windows Vista

Main features:

* Not contains the external DLL

* Not requires installation

* Not writes data to the registry

WinTray v1.6 Executable file


WinTray v1.6 Installer


Versions history:

Version 1.3 (2008-12-26)

- Fixed bug with creating several icons for a one window

+ Added the <Hide all> option (hides all visible windows)

+ Added the <Restore all> option (restores all previously hidden windows)

+ Added grouping of similar windows

Version 1.5 (2009-01-01)

+ Added 2 options

Changed a algorithm of windows grouping

Changed a hooking of closing windows (now grouped window are closed faster)

Version 1.6 (2009-01-29)

Fixed bug with some windows e.g. Foobar (can't closed)

Now the "Restore all" option restores all grouped windows properly.

Now tray tooltips and text of grouped items updates in according with windows titles.

Some cosmetic changes.

Really well done...it gives me ideas o:):)

The only suggestion I have is to change your _EMailSend() function to:

Run(@comspec & '/c start "" "mailto:[your e-mail]?subject=WinTray"')
(I won't post your listed e-mail on the 'net), so it will work with the user's default e-mail program instead of Outlook Express only... :)

Very nice. I made one myself, and was going to implement the modernmenu but you've done such a nice job I'll just use yours now. :) Well done.

Great :) Just one thing: use shellexecute for your mail function. Not all people use outlook express.

Nice utility. Tried it on both XP Pro and Vista Home Premium 32 bit. I wrote a couple of Delphi utilities using JvtrayIcon component that minimizes to tray. Just for grins I did the <shift>minimize on those. You get two icons in the tray(as one might expect.) One of the apps gets a bit confused but it doesn't hang. You just have to keep clicking to get it back in sync.

Thanks for the utility. :)

Edit: This is way cool because I can now uninstall Sunbird Tray Minimizer AddOn and just

minimize to tray with WinTray. With the AddOn you get that annoying effect the first time

you run Sunbird of the app frame showing, then minimizing. With WinTray you just let

it start normally and minimize it to the tray so the alarms will work etc..

Very nice.

Awesome!!! ...5 stars from me!!

Might want to make use of restore all....

; **** add
$TrayItem_Restore = _TrayCreateItem("Restore All")
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Restore")

;**** add/replace

Func _Restore()
    Local $i
    DllCall("User32.dll", "int", "UnhookWinEvent", "hwnd", $hHook)
    For $i = 1 To $aWindow[0][0]
        If $aWindow[$i][0] Then ShowWindow($aWindow[$i][0], @SW_SHOW)
EndFunc   ;==>_Restore

Func _Exit()
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

Hi rasim.

I have two feature requests as well :)

- Grouping of similar windows (I usually have 2-3 instances of Visual Studio running, would be great if they only used onbe icon in the tray) :)

- I know you're not on a vista machine, but could you at least consider adding so when you hover the tray icon a thumbnail shows up? Link is here. I guess you could also do something similar on xp. Take a screenshot before it minimize and then display it in the thumbnail window. o:)

Thanks for this awesome piece of software ;)

Broken link? PM me and I'll send you the file!
