[bb] ggTray system tray DLL by gman [ 1+ years ago ]
« on: June 29, 2017, 12:28:40 AM »
Title : ggTray system tray DLL
Author : gman
Posted : 1+ years ago

Description : a ZIP download for the DLL, decls, and example code is <a href="http://www.gprogs.com/ggTray/2005_05_13_ggTray.zip" target="_blank">here.[/url]

this is a DLL that puts an icon in they system tray and catches some mouse events performed over it.  it is up to the application to "peek" for any generated events each time through a loop instead of responding to a generated event when one happens.  this allows your application to keep chugging instead of waiting for an event.  for a GUI app, WaitEvent will need a timeout.  also, it does not do anything with popup menus.  for that i would recommend <a href="codearcs6423.html?code=697" >Advance PopupMenu[/url] and <a href="codearcs325c.html?code=1132" >Advance Popup Menu extras[/url].  there are 2 examples, one for B+ and one for B3D.  ggTray.dll is provided for free...  use it at your own risk.

the ggTray.decls file:
Code: [Select]
;Declarations file for ggTray.dll
;
; an individual event is in the following format:
; EVENT_TYPE|MOUSEX|MOUSEY
;
; a list of events is a series of the individual event format seperated by newlines
;
; EVENT_TYPE can be the following:
; 1 - left click
; 2 - left double click
; 3 - right click
; 4 - right double click
; 5 - middle click
; 6 - middle double click
;
;

.lib "ggTray.dll"

; attaches the passed window handle to the tray icon and initializes the icon info
ggTrayCreate%(hWnd%):"_ggTrayCreate@4"

; shows the icon in the task tray
ggTrayShowIcon%():"_ggTrayShowIcon@0"

; hides the icon in the task tray
ggTrayHideIcon%():"_ggTrayHideIcon@0"

; sets the tooltip for the icon
ggTraySetToolTip%(cToolTip$):"_ggTraySetToolTip@4"

; gets the tooltip of the icon
ggTrayGetToolTip$():"_ggTrayGetToolTip@0"

; return 1 if visible, 0 if not
ggTrayIsVisible%():"_ggTrayIsvisible@0"

; sets the icon used based on the file passed.  1 if successful, 0 if not.
ggTraySetIconFromFile%(cIcoFile$):"_ggTraySetIconFromFile@4"

; sets the icon used based on an icon handle.  1 if successful, 0 if not.
ggTraySetIconFromHandle%(hIcon%):"_ggTraySetIconFromHandle@4"

; destroys everything setup with ggTrayCreate and removes the icon
ggTrayDestroy%():"_ggTrayDestroy@0"

; clears all events from the queue
ggTrayClearEvents():"_ggTrayClearEvents@0"

; clears the passed event from the queue (one-based)
ggTrayClearEvent(nEvent%):"_ggTrayClearEvent@4"

; returns a CRLF delimited list of events and clears the queue
ggTrayReadEvents$():"_ggTrayReadEvents@0"

; returns the passed event and removes it from the queue
ggTrayReadEvent$(nEvent%):"_ggTrayReadEvent@4"

; returns a CRLF delimited list of events but does not clear the queue
ggTrayPeekEvents$():"_ggTrayPeekEvents@0"

; returns the passed event but does not remove it from the queue
ggTrayPeekEvent$(nEvent%):"_ggTrayPeekEvent@4"

; returns the event # of the first left click encountered
ggTrayPeekLeftClick%():"_ggTrayPeekLeftClick@0"

; returns the event # of the first left double click encountered
ggTrayPeekLeftDblClick%():"_ggTrayPeekLeftDblClick@0"

; returns the event # of the first right click encountered
ggTrayPeekRightClick%():"_ggTrayPeekRightClick@0"

; returns the event # of the first right double click encountered
ggTrayPeekRightDblClick%():"_ggTrayPeekRightDblClick@0"

; returns the mouse X of the event passed
ggTrayEventMouseX%(nEvent%):"_ggTrayEventMouseX@4"

; returns the mouse Y of the event passed
ggTrayEventMouseY%(nEvent%):"_ggTrayEventMouseY@4"

 where can i find the dll?


gman(Posted 1+ years ago)

 there is a link in the original post on the line:"a ZIP download for the DLL, decls,..."click on the word "here" for the download.


Jay Mattis(Posted 1+ years ago)

 The link seems to be down. Does anybody have a copy of this library they could email me? My email address is jay(at)jaymattis.com. Thanks!


gman(Posted 1+ years ago)

 what is a QueryObject??When I start the bb,then direkt stop it because of an error"Function QueryObject not Found"Can somebody help me??


gman(Posted 1+ years ago)

 the example was written for blitzplus and queryobject is a function that will return a platform handle to a window.  my guess is that you are trying to run it in Blitz3d.  i dont have blitz3d so i didnt do an example for it or know if it will work with it :(  maybe someone out there has tried it in blitz3d?


Bad-Rat(Posted 1+ years ago)

 ok.thx gman^^thenI must look,how does it work!


gman(Posted 1+ years ago)

 some searching found <a href="../Community/posts585b-3.html?topic=18287" target="_blank">this[/url] bit of code from Peter Scheutz.  i will see if i can install the demo of blitz3d and get a blitz3d sample going in the morning.
