I saw a program once, that changed its system tray icon (the tray beside the clock... not the big icons on the task bar) whenever you moved your mouse ontop of it.   Now,  I know this isnt the same as a button mouse move, or a window mouse move event.. so does anyone know how to do this?

Please provide a link to a project,  an example,  or step by step on what to do.

Thanks!

Hi,Nitro187.
I have done the job before.I paste some codes here and hope it helpful.

Create a project named Test.

1.Add member varible         NOTIFYICONDATA m_tnd_Play;
and  
#define WM_STARTRECORD      (WM_USER+100)
in the test.h.

2.Add some codes in your InitInstance() function in the implementation file test.cpp
..
.....InitInstance()
{
.....
   m_pMainWnd->ShowWindow(SW_SHOW);
   m_pMainWnd->UpdateWindow();
....
///add codes here
   HICON hIcon=LoadIcon(IDI_ICON1);
   CWnd* pWnd= AfxGetMainWnd();
   m_tnd_Play.cbSize      = sizeof(NOTIFYICONDATA);
   m_tnd_Play.hWnd = pWnd->m_hWnd;
   m_tnd_Play.uID = 10;
   m_tnd_Play.uFlags = NIF_MESSAGE|NIF_ICON|NIF_TIP;
   m_tnd_Play.uCallbackMessage= WM_STARTRECORD;
   m_tnd_Play.hIcon = hIcon;
   strcpy(m_tnd_Record1.szTip,"Playing");
if (hIcon)
    {
       DestroyIcon(hIcon);
    }
   Shell_NotifyIcon(NIM_ADD, &m_tnd_Play);
}

3.Implementation in Mainfrm.cpp; CMainFrame::DefWindowProc(UINT message, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam)
{
      if(message==WM_STARTRECORD)
      {
            switch(lParam)
            {
            case WM_LBUTTONDOWN:
                  break;
            case WM_RBUTTONDOWN:
                  break;
            case WM_MOUSEMOVE:
//////////////////////you can modify the icon here.
                  break;
            }
      }
      return CFrameWnd::DefWindowProc(message, wParam, lParam);

}

BOOL CMainFrame::DestroyWindow()
{
      CScreenCaptureApp* pApp=(CTestApp*)AfxGetApp();
      Shell_NotifyIcon(NIM_DELETE, &(pApp->m_tnd_Play));
      return CFrameWnd::DestroyWindow();
}

If there is any questions,please Email me jianliuer@sina.com.

Good Luck!
