Band to your explorer task bar for quick access to Mantis bug tracking system
Sample Image - mantisband.jpg


This code provides easy access to Mantis bug tracking issues. As program manager, I often need to find an issue in Mantis by issue number.


This application is programmed as explorer desktop band.


  1. Save MantisIssues.dll to local disk.
  2. Run "regsvr32.exe MantisIssues.dll".
  3. Select Toolbar\MantisIssues from task bar context menu.
  4. After this, you will see "Mantis settings..." in your task bar.
  5. If you run Mantis settings from local menu, you can set your Mantis URL, for example, "http://mymantis/".
  6. And now, you can enter the issue number and press Enter key.
