Hide tray icon

Post by malinduta » Thu Feb 02, 2012 12:08 am

It would be very nice to have the option to hide the tray icon, or to start EG (on system startup) with no tray icon.
What do you say?

For saving space near the clock.
EG starts by default (on system startup) without any window. You configure EG the way you want, make it start without tray icon and the remote is working (in background) without ANY user interface.

How will you open the EventGhost window, if there will need to change something?
How will the state indicated (instead of green, yellow or red icon)?

Start - Programs - EventGhost - EventGhost.lnk, or from install directory.

I don`t know. For me, it`s not vital.

All I want is a command that allows me to start EG with no tray icon. I DO NOT want this option to be on by default.

Something like:

Code: Select all

EventGhost.exe -notrayicon

Which operating system you use?
If Windows XP or Windows 7, you can use the "Hide inactive icons" option.
You do not like it? If so, you probably have bad luck.
I doubt that here is someone who wants to satisfy your requirement.
Given that your request is so unique, I'm personally not interested to solve it.

Since it doesn't appear this'll be added to EventGhost, I devised my own solution:

Code: Select all

eg.Unbind("ProcessingChange", eg.taskBarIcon.OnProcessingChange)
eg.taskBarIcon.OnProcessingChange = lambda *dummyArgs: True
eg.Bind("ProcessingChange", eg.taskBarIcon.OnProcessingChange)
eg.taskBarIcon.RemoveIcon()
Add the above to a Python Script in Autostart, and you'll be good to go.

The script above does in fact hide the systray icon but doesn't allow for launching of the app directly to get back in. Anyone have a way to do this? Would love to hide this icon from the systray if possible.

Doesn't work for me.... I see it still running as a task in task manager, but when I open it, it doesn't bring the active session back up. To be clear I am trying to keep it from showing up on the taskbar and systray while still running in the background.

I am aware. But if you run EventGhost again it will "un hide" the current running instance. and for some crazy reason I do not think that the script above is going to work properly. and you not being able to "un hide" EG could be because of that script.

ok you can always create a script and install the keyboard plugin so you can set a specific key combination to bring it back up

so install the keyboard plugin. press the key combination you want to use to open EG back up. create a macro with a Python Command action put the code below into the action grab the event for the key combo put it into the macro.. and Viola! instant key combo shows EG again..


Code: Select all

eg.document.ShowFrame()

and the only thing you should have to do to hide the icon is the code below. you shouldn't have to do any of that other stuff it's not necessary and could be causing the issue

Code: Select all

 eg.taskBarIcon.Hide()
