tray menu to show gui

Recommended Posts


Hello, how do I show an gui only when selecting a tray menu option?

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$gui = GUICreate("My GUI")

$showgui = TrayCreateItem("Show")
$hidegui = TrayCreateItem("Hide")
$exitItem = TrayCreateItem("Exit")

GUISetState (@SW_HIDE, $gui)

While 1
  $traymsg = TrayGetMsg()
      case $traymsg = $showgui
        GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $gui)
      case $traymsg = $hidegui
        GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $gui)
      case $traymsg = $exitItem
  $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then exitloop

sleep (500)

You do not need the Opt("TrayOnEventMode",1). That puts the tray menu into OnEvent mode and you want GetMsg mode!

I would also remove the Sleep from your While...Wend loop. The GetMsg functions put in their own pauses and you are just making the whole thing unresponsive.
