 Post subject: sys tray bug
PostPosted: Mon Mar 15, 2004 11:30 pm 
if windows explorer crashes while the client is minimized to the system tray the icon disapears and will not come back.. the only way to shut it down is by ending the task from task manager.

Running windows xp sp1

Explorer seems to crash more regularily when I'm BitTorrenting. Anyway as a work around to losing touch with the clients you can use PS Tray Factory (http://www.pssoftlab.com/), it will hold on to the icons that were in the system tray if explorer crashes...

Recent versions of wxPython have incorporated a fix for this problem, but until a new version goes mainline, you folks are just going to have to suffer. I've done a lot of research on the problem and discovered there's just no easy way to receive the needed signal from the OS.

I have no idea what you can do with wxPython, i.e. Windows message handling - but the common solution to the problem is something like:

And look in the section, under the heading, "Taskbar Creation Notification".

As I said, there's no simple way to intercept the "TaskbarCreated" message without patching and rebuilding the Windows GUI library, and that's something I can't do. Sorry.

This may be far fetched, but would it be an idea to assign some kind of global hotkey that shows all dtdownloadgui windows? That would circumvent the need to click the icon in the systemtray. Think something exotic like ctrl-shift-alt-f12 or maybe something customizable. Minimizing the client again won't make the icon show (I think), but at least you have a way of closing the client in a normal fashion, instead of having to kill the process.
