Add shortcut to the "erasure progress window" in systray.

This feature would have a similar functionality like that of the Windows 7 Network systray icon.

Clicking the Eraser systray icon once, would open the progress window of the current erasure.
Clicking it again would close the window.

If possible, a double-click on the icon should open the main window GUI.
If not possible a shortcut to the main window GUI could be added to the progress window, similar to the way the Windows 7 Network icon, has a shortcut implemented to the Network Center.

I'll need to use [Shell_NotifyIconGetRect http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd378426%28VS.85%29.aspx] which may limit it to Windows 7. Perhaps for earlier OSes we just assume the bottom right corner of the screen...

  • Milestone changed from Eraser 6.0.7 to Eraser 6.1/6.2

If you currently double-click on the tray icon using Vista then the main GUI window does appear. If you double-click it again then it should hide it again.

Also could you expand upon why you want to use Shell_NotifyIconGetRect?

Windows 7 Network icon

The Windows 7 network icon opens up a very light menu as shown which displays the list of networks available for connecting to. Eraser could have a similar interface displayed when a single click of the system notification area icon is executed.

Yes the Window's 7 light menu looks good. If we could get Eraser to have something similar then that would be great. My only concern would be is users on XP / Vista.

Fr XP/Vista I would imagine we just push the dialog to the extreme right corner of the primary monitor...
