Greetings All,

I am new to Ultimate and starting work on a project that will be using a systray interface.

In QT they hade a very nice example but since I like what I have seen in Ultimate, I would rather use this library instead.

Does anyone have a nice and simple example that will popup a menu from a systray icon to get me started?

Thanks,
Lonnie

Welcome!

What you want is the TrayIcon project, under 'Reference' in the package selector dialog.

It seems very easy to use, hope it helps.

Thanks for the help.

I was able to compile the reference example with the TheIDE compiler using MinGW and just need to now figure out where TheIDE is placing the executable.

Thanks again and have agreat weekend.

Cheers,

Took me 3 years to notice "Build / Open output directory" and to start using it. (than again, maybe it was added later .. and maybe I'm just ignorant way too much)
So in case you figured it out in 1 day, you are far superior to me. Wink Smile

That's funny: I don't have such a menu option in 2008.1. Maybe it is only present in latest svn.

From what I've noticed, it only shows up after you compile for the first time that session. But it has been around for some time now.

It's aways there on Windows, but I've never seen it when using Linux.

Ahh, your right. I think it would be handy to have on Linux too, no?

Can not quite guess what is the problem on Linux that needs to be solved for implementation.

We would have to detect the default file manager and run that. We could cover the top few. Gnome with Nautilus, KDE with Konquerer, Thunar, ...
Or... provide an option for the user to set his own file manager and run that, so long as it accepts the command form
"filemanager <path>" and you could just exec it. I know I would like to have that functionality with U++ so that it doesn't use explorer on Windows (I use CubicExplorer for file manager on Windows -> www.cubicreality.com).

Thanks, didn't think of that.
Yes that takes a bit code to make everybody happy.
Not hard. Just a little bit of grunt work, unless you simply have the user type in the command.

"Build/Open output directory" menu is now available in TheIDE for Linux too, in svn.
