DevPower Tray Icon ActiveX Control Version History

Version 2.5.0 (01-Jun-00)

  • Updated Visual Basic 6.0 release to include support for Windows 2000 / ME Tray Icon Balloons.

Version 2.2.0 (18-Jan-99)

  • Released Visual Basic 6.0 based version (fully compatible with VB5 previous version).
  • Optimised handling of multiple instances.

Version 2.1.0 (24-Jul-98)

  • Added RightClick event.
  • Fixed Click event that wasn't getting sent correctly.

Version 2.0.0 (15-Mar-98)

  • The ClassID for the control has had to change because of the way events are sent has been altered. The new control is "Project Compatible" with version 1.x, meaning that the upgrade should be fairly simple.
    The changes were necessary for using the control within environments that don't handle ActiveX controls as well as Internet Explorer or Visual Basic and should now make the programming interface more logical for Visual C++ users.
    For Web page usage, the new ClassID is 2B40DC94-BBE9-11D1-A87F-8F9B67DFAA49
    The change means that the event definitions in any existing Visual Basic projects you have that use this control will need updating - however, the change is simple - event parameters are now passed ByVal (and not the Visual Basic default ByRef), so simply paste ByVal into your existing event handlers.
  • Added Version Method so the control version can be obtained.
  • Events from the tray icon are now "Posted" rather than "Sent", meaning that more mouse events are received.

Version 1.0.3 (16-Feb-98)

  • Added IconURL property to enable Icons to be downloaded from a web server.

Version 1.0.2 (02-Jan-98)

  • First public release with "Safe for Scripting" Interface that enables usage in a web page.
