What options does AutoIt give to display text?

Recommended Posts

I've seen the standard msgBox and splashOn I think and I was wondering what else there is. Is it possible to display something at the bottom right of the taskbar where the logos of the running apps are?

I want to write a little tool that displays the weekday somewhere so it's always visible because I tend to forget :) When you pull the taskbar to make it bigger it shows the weekday in there. I'd like to achieve that in one line.

edit: other problem is sorted, question about how to display things remains.

Thanks

ToolTip() would let you do this.

But I would suggest installing TClockEx and get a calendar too.

Edit: Calendar when clicked:

In my case - I have it displaying free RAM

[but it only "sees" up to 2GB?]

Tooltip when mouse over.

Tooltip is a start. The best place in this case would be the start button area I guess but when I put it there and press start it disappears. I guess I could just have it refreshed every second or so. I assume that would be no effort for the pc?!?

What I'd like to do is what TClock does but do it myself :)

Any ideas?
