WPF NotifyIcon 1.0.5 Released

November 25th, 2013

I just published a maintenance release of my NotifyIcon control, which addresses a few (long due) issues, most notably for applications that target more recent versions of the .NET framework, or x64 applications.

Source code and samples can be downloaded via the control’s project page. Alternatively, there’s now also an official NuGet package for the control (binaries only) that contains builds for .NET 3.5 up to 4.5.1.

What’s next?

I already started working on a new version of the control. The most important feature will be interactive tooltips (so you can hover over them and interact with clickable content), along with a few minor new features. Check back in a few days/weeks, or follow me on Twitter in order to get the update once it’s released. Also, if you have specific feature requests, let me know!

    Thank you,
    just switched from 1.0.4 to the NuGet package 1.0.5 without any pain. :)

    This is one heck of a useful plugin! Thanks a lot.

    I’ve got a question though: my application uses styling (themes) by switching merged ResourceDictionaries. This works fine for the main window but it fails to update anything for the tray icon’s tooltip.

    I’m using a custom tooltip (own UserControl) for it and the interesting styles are defined as “DynamicResource”. Data binding works fine, seems it’s just the “graphical” stuff…

    Any help would be appreciated.

    My issue is when running this through a RemoteApp session the system tray icon will not appear on the computer running the RemoteApp session. 2nd when I show a custom balloon it appears in the upper left hand corner of the users desktop.

    RemoteApp doesn’t give you the servers desktop, only the application your allowed to access from the server.

    I’m assuming this will have the same effect in a Citrix environment but I don’t have one of those to test with.

    Would love any help anyone can provide.

    I am using this awesome tool. but a quick question, I see have a timeout, but I’d like to see if I can control the popup animation’s speed in showing. I am not really a xaml / wpf expert so maybe the asnwer is more obvious that I think

    thanks

    In Windows form NotifyIcon, it has BalloonClicked event. However I can not see the similar event in the WPF counterpart. Without the event, how can I act when balloon is clicked. I would like to open a new window after balloon is clicked.
