systray question

I have added and deleted an icon from the systray, but I am curious how to make the code respond when right clicking or left clicking on the icon.  In other words lets say I want to execute showmessage('test') when someone right clicks on the icon.  How do I do this? How do I intercept when this click takes place?
            Thanks

Hi

You should have a WndProc which receives the messages.  If you don't, you can create a component and a WndProc for it.  You will probably inherit from TComponent, so you will need to allocate a handle to your component:

constructor TMyTrayComp.Create(AOwner: TComponent);
begin
  inherited Create(AOwner);
  FHandle := AllocateHWnd(WndProc);
end;

Your WndProc will then look something like this:

procedure TMyTrayComp.WndProc(var AMsg: TMessage);
begin
  try
    with AMsg do
      if (Msg = CM_TRAYICON) then
        begin
          case AMsg.lParam of
            WM_LBUTTONDBLCLK:
              ShowMessage('Double-click');
            WM_LBUTTONUP:
              ShowMessage('Left Click');
            WM_RBUTTONUP:
              ShowMessage('Right Click');
          end;
        end
      else
        Result := DefWindowProc(FHandle, Msg, wParam, lParam);
  except
    Application.HandleException(Self);
  end;
end;

If any of this is a bit vague, I have a tray icon component that I can e-mail to you if you provide your e-mail address.

Regards,
JB
