#522 closed Feature Request (Rejected)

TrayMenu Select Option - Works on button down, not button up

Reported by: Melba23 Owned by:

I wonder if you would consider putting in an option for TrayMenu items so that they action on button down and stay working until button up? I have seen this available on a couple of systray-based mp3 player applications to control the volume (Random Mp3 Player is a good example). I have searched the helpfile and the AutoIt fora, and even asked in a couple of topics, but found no workarounds.

Specifically, the request is for:

  • Click on trayicon to get tray context menu.
  • Cursor over menu item leading to submenu.
  • Button down on an item in the submenu - action occurs
  • Button up from the item - action ceases and tray menu closes

"action" is either the calling of an OnEvent defined function or the creation of a GUIGetMsg return value.

I cannot see a need for a similar option in the normal GUI menus as normal GUI controls (e.g. sliders) are available.

So, could this be considered as something to add in future releases, or would it be too difficult to implement?

Thanks for reading, and for providing such a great programming tool.

This is a very specific request and not generally useful.

Err, that should have been "generically useful".
