User tray items auto-checkmarking

Reported by: Rob Saunders <therks@…> Owned by: Valik
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: trayitem Cc:


Sorry for the clumsily worded title.
Repro. script:

Opt('TrayAutoPause', 0)
TrayCreateItem('Click me')

While 1

When you click "Click Me" it check marks it. I never told it to do this and, though I might be missing something, I can't figure out how to make it stop. I don't believe this is the proper behaviour.

Environment = under WIN_XP/Service Pack 2 X86

I too found it difficult to figure out how to disable the behavior. This is definitely not something that should be default behavior.

comment:2 Changed 15 years ago by wraithdu

Opt('TrayMenuMode', 2)

This Opt will stop the behavior, though the Opt description in the help file doesn't clearly convey the effect.

comment:3 Changed 15 years ago by Rob Saunders <therks@…>

Odd, I could've sworn I tried that and it didn't work. Still shouldn't be the default behaviour though.

comment:4 Changed 15 years ago by BinaryBrother

Using Opt('TrayMenuMode',2) causes "Script Paused" and the default Tray-items for an AutoIt script to be shown in my tests. I didn't manage to disable the checks at all, without causing defaults to be added to the tray menu.

If you read the help, it states that 1 is to disable the default menu, so combine 1 with 2.
ie: Opt('TrayMenuMode', 1+2)

No bug just se the rigth Opt('TrayMenuMode', ...)

The problem is, we have to set the magical combination of correct options. It's poorly designed and is needlessly confusing. Something needs addressed here because two otherwise competent individuals (at least) were puzzled about the behavior.

comment:9 Changed 15 years ago by Jpm

Is not so magical but yes there is 2 different options that currently have to be understood

Opt('TrayAutoPause', 0)	; to avoid script pause
Opt('TrayMenuMode', 2)	; to avoid user item checkmarking

that does not seem too much but well ...
