Can I do this with Revolution

Post by cseymour » Thu Jul 20, 2006 4:46 pm

HI All,
Just downloaded the demo for Revolution Studio. Is it possible to create an application for windows that will minimize to the system tray? Will I be able to call Windows function from say user32?

I think the latest version of Rev has the ability to use the system tray. But
as for making API calls, I'm not sure.

Set the icon of the stack and open the stack iconified. From the Unsupported section of the What's New file of RunRev 2.7.2:

You can set and get 'the icon' as a global property allowing control over a
status-tray icon (on Windows) and the image on the dock (on MacOS X). If the property is set to 0, the status-tray icon is removed (on Windows) or the
image reset to default (on MacOS X). Setting it to a non-zero integer will
display the specified image with that id in the dock, or as a status-tray
