I'm trying to make myself a "slimer" shell...
My only problem is applications disappearing in what should be the systray.
They minimize to nowhere...
How can i list all apps using Tray Icons ?

Hi,

With madKernel you can manage tray icons (see API "Shell_NotifyIcon") of any application.
This kind of functionality is totally undocumented, but works well from win95 to winXP

http://help.madshi.net/TrayIcons.htm 

Download:
http://madshi.bei.t-online.de/madCollection.exe


Example:

uses
  MadKernel;

      for i := 0 to TrayIcons.ItemCount -1 do
      begin
        ShowMessgage(TrayIcons[i].Window.OwnerProcess.ExeFile);
      end;

Damn, ItemCount returns 0, and there are icons there... :S

BTW, can I get this collections source?

It works only if the tray window is visible, which is probably not the case if you're trying to write your own shell, right? There are some projects out there with full sources for replacing the Windows shell - including the tray icon stuff. I don't have any links (sorry), but a search in google might help.

Thanks, though I found that page, the one with Delphi source isn't available.
And one VB source I couldn't get...
I'll try the others :)

ok, i got it, my apps "says" it is the systray
that way:
  WM_TASKBARCREATED := RegisterWindowMessage('TaskbarCreated');
  PostMessage(HWND_BROADCAST, WM_TASKBARCREATED, 0, 0);

Yes, and I guess you have to create your own window with the correct class name which claims to be the systray.
