CTrayIconPosition - where is my tray icon?

, 10 Jul 2012
Ever wanted to know position of your tray icon? Windows supplies no API for that. This class is a compact solution that works.
// TrayFinderDlg.h : header file

#if !defined(AFX_TRAYFINDERDLG_H__879D05C7_451A_11D7_B751_00304F20BD3B__INCLUDED_)
#define AFX_TRAYFINDERDLG_H__879D05C7_451A_11D7_B751_00304F20BD3B__INCLUDED_

#if _MSC_VER > 1000
#pragma once
#endif // _MSC_VER > 1000

#include "TrayIconPosition.h"
// CTrayFinderDlg dialog

class CTrayFinderDlg : public CDialog
// Construction
	CTrayFinderDlg(CWnd* pParent = NULL);	// standard constructor
	CTrayIconPosition m_tipPosition;

// Dialog Data
	int		m_iTrackType;

	// ClassWizard generated virtual function overrides
	virtual void DoDataExchange(CDataExchange* pDX);	// DDX/DDV support

// Implementation
	HICON m_hIcon;

	// Generated message map functions
	virtual BOOL OnInitDialog();
	afx_msg void OnSysCommand(UINT nID, LPARAM lParam);
	afx_msg void OnPaint();
	afx_msg HCURSOR OnQueryDragIcon();
	afx_msg void OnAdd();
	afx_msg void OnDelete();
	afx_msg void OnDestroy();
	afx_msg void OnCalculate();
	afx_msg void OnIzsoft();

// Microsoft Visual C++ will insert additional declarations immediately before the previous line.

#endif // !defined(AFX_TRAYFINDERDLG_H__879D05C7_451A_11D7_B751_00304F20BD3B__INCLUDED_)
