[solved] How to change system tray icon of another process ?

Recommended Posts

TinyBoy

Change the own tray icon is easy but how to change the tray icon of another process ?

Searched help, forums and google but no sucess. Can someone point me to UDFs or sanple scripts.

I have written a small helper for AVIRA virus solution and I want to change the tray icon so that the user recognices that a scan or update is running.

I know the PID of the tray process, but the code snippet to change or blink or whatsoever ... is missing. :)

Please do not code for me but send some pointers or ideas.

The coding will be my problem. :o

The items in the system tray are just buttons on a toolbar. Try _GUICtrlToolbar_SetButtonBitMap(). The images available come from the Image List for the toolbar. See the help file under the _GuiCtrlToolBar_* functions.

Thanks PsaltyDS :o

Here my solution:

CODE
; hide/show tray icon

#include <GuiToolbar.au3>

Local $i, $iCmdID, $sText

Local $handle = ControlGetHandle("[CLASS:Shell_TrayWnd]", "", "[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32; INSTANCE:1]")

Local $iButtonCount = _GUICtrlToolbar_ButtonCount($handle)

For $i = 1 To $iButtonCount

$iCmdID = _GUICtrlToolbar_IndexToCommand($handle, $i)

$sText = _GUICtrlToolbar_GetButtonText($handle, $iCmdID)

If StringInStr($sText, "Avira AntiVir") Then ExitLoop

Next

For $i = 1 To 5

_GUICtrlToolbar_HideButton($handle, $iCmdID, True)

Sleep(500)

_GUICtrlToolbar_HideButton($handle, $iCmdID, False)

Sleep(500)

Next
