XMouse Button Control and tray hide icon

Post by gazda »

Version X... XMouseButtonControl 2.19.2 Portable
OS: WIN7-64bit

I bought a new mouse today, otherwise ASUS, but it sucks. I wanted to reprogram the side buttons, forward / backward. I found your program and it works OK. I like.

But I have another problem. I don't want a tray icon on the taskbar. I know there is in Windows itself which shows / hides the icons. But it doesn't work because I have it set to always display all the icons. If I enable that, then in the tray it shows me that llama arrow for hidden icons. Let's let it go.

I'm wondering if your program can write remap functions of 4 and 5 buttons to the registry? If so, please for instructions? If not, maybe in the next version of your X program you would add the option to hide the icon in the tray?

A program that hides any icon, including its own, is also considered;)

I know I'm complicating things, but life would be boring;)

Thanks

You can already hide the icon!
Right click the icon, and select Hide Icon.
It will go away. To make it come back (or to configure XMBC, run the program again - even though it is still running, it will cause it to show the setup screen).

If the icon comes back, (it might) I think there is a setting in the XML file (settings.xml) to permanently hide the icon - it is not exposed in the GUI because its generally not a good thing to hide it completely as it means you cant easily access XMBC settings or see the status.

No you cant write to the registry to remap buttons - XMBC has to be running because it has to intercept the messages and change them.
