 Most impressive Kev. I did actually see another example ages ago but it didn't work on my system. This one works great.A much needed feature for Blitz Plus so thanks.


Klaas(Posted 1+ years ago)

 cool .. needed that badly :-) ... thanks man


Kev(Posted 1+ years ago)

 when i get time i was thinking of adding drag&drop feature to blitz windows.


asdfasdf(Posted 1+ years ago)

 When I downloaded it and ran the exe it wouldn't work. It popped up with an error message. And the bb file had a function missing. Never mind


Kev(Posted 1+ years ago)

 it does? its not QueryObject() by any chance.


electronin(Posted 1+ years ago)

 Very cool, Kev!@Blitz Programer - what OS are you running on your computer?

 <div class="quote"> BlitzCC V1.85(C)opyright 2000-2003 Blitz Research LtdCompiling "C:folderTaskBarTrayExample.bb"Parsing...Generating..."C:folerTaskBarTrayExample.bb"Line 78 Function 'hidegadget' not found </div>What Am I missing ?


electronin(Posted 1+ years ago)

 HideGadget() is a BlitzPlus function. If you have Blitz3D, then it won't work.


Klaas(Posted 1+ years ago)

 when the application is hidden the programm is suspended .. is it possible to catch some timer ticks while hidden ?The "TaskBarEvent(hWnd,0,0,0,0)" command themes to halt execution of the programm ... any ideas to solve this problem ?thx


rdodson41(Posted 1+ years ago)

 Yes, it completely halts execution of the program. Is there anyway so that it will still work and recieve events and stuff? Plus, is there anyway to change the icon as to make my own icon? Thanks in advance.


Binary_Moon(Posted 1+ years ago)

 I've been playing with this a bit the last couple of days as well :)The taskBar event pauses everything each time it is called. For now I'm just not using it, and just using the TaksBarMenuEvent since that's all I need. Would be interesting to know why it's so slow though.<div class="quote"> Plus, is there anyway to change the icon as to make my own icon? </div>That one's easy. Create an icon and then specify it in the addTrayIcon command. Mine looks like this
Code: [Select]
Add_Tray_Icon("Title"+Chr(0),hwnd,"icon.ico")


rdodson41(Posted 1+ years ago)

 How do i create an icon? i know how to add it so it uses it in the program.


Binary_Moon(Posted 1+ years ago)

 Use an icon editor - there are loads around but I recommend <a href="http://www.snidesoft.com/" target="_blank">http://www.snidesoft.com/[/url]


rdodson41(Posted 1+ years ago)

 Thx it works great. But has anyone solved the problem of getting events to a program when its in the task bar?


asdfasdf(Posted 1+ years ago)

 Will it work without the HideGadget()? With Blitz3D?


rdodson41(Posted 1+ years ago)

 I dont know about B3D, but without the hidegadget it will still be visible.


rdodson41(Posted 1+ years ago)

 Has anyone figured out how to give events to the thing while its minimized into the tray?


Kev(Posted 1+ years ago)

 Rich05 the .dll only sends events to your program it wont receive all events only standard events, to check what events are received use sys_tray() function. also make sure the tray icon has focus. a rewritten version will go into WinBlitz3D, complete with better event handles.


asdfasdf(Posted 1+ years ago)

 Is there a version that will work with Blitz3D?


rdodson41(Posted 1+ years ago)

 I doubt it, youll probably have to make it yourself.


Pineapple(Posted 1+ years ago)

 Nice!!!Dabz:)


gman(Posted 1+ years ago)

 has anyone been successful at changing the popup menu once its been set?  if i call DeleteIconMenu() after i have already added menu items, i cant seem to add more and have it function properly.  any ideas on what i may be doing wrong?thank you.


Kev(Posted 1+ years ago)

 gman, i havent tryed that. so thanks for pointing it out. i will not be working on this anymore. all my spare time is being used on two projects im coding blitzlockit and winblitz3d.

em22(Posted 1+ years ago)

 nice one :)


Nike(Posted 1+ years ago)

 cool but if i was going to use this in a program and sell the program, or just use the program, would i have to say like "Made by Kevin Poole,  kevin.poole@lineone"?or just put your name in credits or would i have to do nothing at all? Im not going to sell or rename the dll, but include the dll in my program.
