TrayItemDelete($TRAY_ITEM_PAUSE) ; this doesn't work. Why ?

5 posts in this topic

TrayItemDelete($TRAY_ITEM_PAUSE) ; this doesn't work. Why ?

I do not want to build a own menu handler, but just want to use the default menu handler.

But I want to hide the Pause item since it is an alarm clock application and it makes no sense to pause it. Just a item to terminate the alarm is required.

The handle should be correct, otherwise the text would not change.

#include <Constants.au3>
#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
Opt("TrayAutoPause", 0)
GUICreate("Tray Test", 150, 40)
GUISetState()
TrayItemSetText($TRAY_ITEM_EXIT, "Terminate")
TrayItemSetText($TRAY_ITEM_PAUSE, "Have a break")
TrayItemDelete($TRAY_ITEM_PAUSE); this doesn't work. Why ?

Well, if you do

Opt("TrayMenuMode",1)  ; Default tray menu items (Script Paused/Exit) will not be shown.
then both the pause and the exit function will not be in the menu. If there are no other menu items, no menu will be shown at all when clicking the icon.

As says in the help:

TrayItemDelete

Parameters:

controlID - The control identifier (controlID) as returned by a TrayCreateItem or TrayCreateMenu function

I think you can't delete the default menu items, but you can create your own menu items and do any actions with them.

Look, I try to get a handle from the default menu item and the script is crashes:

#include <Constants.au3>
#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>

Opt("TrayAutoPause", 0)

GUICreate("Tray Test", 150, 40)
GUISetState()

TrayItemSetText($TRAY_ITEM_EXIT, "Terminate")

TrayItemSetText($TRAY_ITEM_PAUSE, "Have a break")

$hTrayItem = TrayItemGetHandle($TRAY_ITEM_PAUSE)

ConsoleWrite($hTrayItem & @LF)

While 1
    If GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit
WEnd

Looks like a bug :)

Yes, this seems to be an old bug, even on 3.2.8.1 it crashes the script. I made a bug report about it.

rasim, just see my first post: I do not want to build a own menu handler

It would be desirable to have the option:

Opt("TrayAutoPause", -1)

to omit the pause item.

But I assume that such a feature request will be rejected.
