Hello, I compiled my trayicon utility c++ code in visual studio 2005 express edition and tray icon balloons showed up successfully but later I deleted my firewall, switched on to windows firewall and now I am on another firewall software. Now i ran my same project and balloons showed up successfully but when i rebuilt it, i can't see balloons anymore. My Shell_NotifyIcon method still returns true.
Here is the code:
nid.cbSize = sizeof( NOTIFYICONDATA_V2_SIZE ); // i've tested NOTIFYICONDATA //and nid as well nid.hWnd = hWnd; nid.uID = uID; nid.uFlags = NIF_ICON | NIF_MESSAGE | NIF_TIP|NIF_INFO; nid.dwInfoFlags = 0x00000004; strcpy(nid.szInfoTitle , balloonTitle); strcpy(nid.szInfo , balloonMsg); int ret = Shell_NotifyIcon( NIM_MODIFY, &nid );
Can anybody suggest where does the problem lie? it seems it is related to OS, my OS is XP and i've even modified "EnableBalloonTips" to 1.
