Hide Tray Icon - pdfSaver

Post by zylex » Thu Nov 23, 2017 11:00 am

Hi there,

I'm looking for the registry key to hide the pdfSaver Tray Icon. All other settings are stored under "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange Lite 5\pdfSaver", but there is no Key for the Tray Icon.

Any Ideas?

Thanks!

Hello,

From what I have learned about this via the internet is, that hiding a particular icon/application in the System Tray via the Windows Registry will NOT be an easy job.

It seems like all icon settings about hide/show are together in one global binary key (not per application).
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify

The most easy thing is to just manage this via the customer user settings, but I guess you already know this.

Best regards.

Hi,

yes I know that. But I'm deploying the software to several PCs and would like to deploy that setting too. All other pdfsaver settings are manged via registry key, but there is no key for that specific setting. You can set this in the pdfsaver Options, but I can't find the corresponding registry key.

Something similar to the pdfSaver "Flags" key of PDF-XChange Standard V6:
0 = Do not "Show Icon in the System Tray"
1 = Show icon

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange 6\pdfSaver]
"Flags"=dword:00000001

I can not immediately find it neither.

Has anyone found out how to hide the pdfSaver-tray-icon? When using the development-kit I can pretty much control all aspects of the program, I even can set if the printing-progress is shown by setting the option "Saver.ShowProgress" to true/false but there is no option to hide the tray-icon (or to control the handling of temporary files). One can only do this manually by doubleclicking on the tray-icon and manually checking or unchecking the options.

Best regrards,
Michael
