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.
