nTray displays tray icons ^^.


To load the module you need to add a `LoadModule` line pointing to this modules file to your step.rc or theme.rc: LoadModule "$ModulesDir$nTray-0.5.dll" Or, if you are using NetLoadModule:

  • NetLoadModule nTray-0.5

Make sure to load it _after_ nCore since it needs the library functions nCore provides.


To start you need to create a new nTray "group". You do this by naming it in your step.rc, theme.rc or any other .rc file that is loaded into your LiteStep configuration:

  • nTrayTheNAME

You can create as many nTray "groups" as you like. Adding another line like this:

  • nTrayAnotherName

will add another one.

Background Configuration

The nTray background is a window whose prefix is the name of the nTray group.

The ballon is made up of 3 windows. The main background window, which has a prefix of (trayName)Balloon, and 2 child windows -- the title with a prefix of (trayName)!BalloonTitle, and the X button with a prefix of(trayName)!BalloonCloseButton.

Hiding Icons

Icons can be hidden using `*`(trayName)Hide lines; with one of the two following formats

  • (trayName)Hide Icon_GUID

Where Icon_GUID is the GUID of the tray icon to hide.

  • (trayName)Hide Icon_ProcessName

Where Icon`_`!ProcessName is the name of the process that created the icon.

To get identifying information about all icons currently in the tray, execute the bang command `!`nTrayListIconIDs

Here is a table of the GUIDs for some common system icons || Icon || GUID || || Network || {7820AE74-23E3-4229-82C1-E41CB67D5B9C} || || Volume || {7820AE73-23E3-4229-82C1-E41CB67D5B9C} || || Action Center || {7820AE76-23E3-4229-82C1-E41CB67D5B9C} ||
