  • How can I put a CC app...

    ...down on the quick launch area? You know, down where the calendar, zone alarm, A/V is.

    I already put it in the startup folder, but it's down on the task bar and I would prefer it on the quick launch.

    Maybe my terms are bass-ackwards.

    If my flag offends you, I'll help you pack.

    Drag the program icon and drop it in the Quick Lauch area?

    Paul.

    Edit: <<down where the calendar>>
    Lools like drag and drop only works on the Quick Lauch bar beside the Start button.

      Those apps are in the TRAY, not the quicklaunch area. The tray is supposed to be used only for programs/services which are already running. There are demos here, search on "tray", but basically tray apps HAVE a GUI, which most CC programs don't. Not that you COULDN'T do it... when the TRAY icon is clicked, you could show your alrady-running program (I think there must be a CC command to "hide/show console" somewhere)

        There is a tray example the \PBWin\Samples\Sdk\Tray directory. Since this is PBCC, I have attached the PBWin Tray example to this post.

        If you search for tray, do me and all the other forum members a favor and add a search tag of "tray" for these threads. Thank you.

          Are you sure you don't want it to be a tag of "quicklaunch?" After all, that's what was asked!

          Or maybe both, so you could search on either term?

          Oh, I see we have tags now... so you could find this thread searching on "quick lanuch" .. assuming you guess that particular spelling.

            Good idea, Mike. As you can see I have added "quick launch" and "tray" as tags applied to this thread.

              The Quick Launch folder on XP is located at C:\Documents and Settings\<UserName>\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch. Not sure about other versions of Windows.

                Look again. Carefully.

                    Searchable "Key words" is a great idea... but this is a really good example of why one should take one's time and double-check one's work when defining them.

                      I see this is "wiki-like" .. anybody may edit any thread's tags.

                      I guess that means next time I espy an obvious typo (eg "quick lanuch") I should just edit it myself.
