Basic description of the application:

A simple vb.net application to modify html, htm, php...txt files without too much junk inside the application itself.

It works, but now it's just notepad with a green color :P

About those menu options, that's a good idea

You can make it Radio Checked by setting RadioCheck on True, and after that use this code to toggle between checked and unchecked. And to enable or disable those buttons :)

code:
Private Sub mnu_klikkert_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles mnu_klikkert.Click
        If (mnu_klikkert.Checked = True) Then
            mnu_klikkert.Checked = False
        Else
            mnu_klikkert.Checked = True
        End If
    End Sub


About not showing up in the taskbar so only in systray set this
code:
Me.ShowInTaskbar = False

So when you minimize it, you set this and it will minimize to systray.

If you do this make sure you can open the program again by doubleclicking the systray icon or add Open to the systray menu or both :)

Also it's using 21 MB of memory :o, that's A LOT!, but I don't think you can do much about it :(

How do I set it that when it minimizes, it shows in systray, otherwise it doesnt?

and also, how would I go about bringing the app back to the taskbar, and having the systray icon hide again?

Also, how would I go about making a setting so that a user can decide if they want it to minimize it so systray or not?

Not a major bug but...

When I click exit (from the button on the form and from the File menu), the icon remains in the systray after the app exits. Now, I dont know much about VB.Net but I *think* you need to put some code in on the form's exit procedure to remove the icon, if you haven't done so already.

Other than that I like :) I'll keep playing with it. (y)

if I can have the icon not be there unless the form is minimized, then this should fix it.

edit: and thanks

How about:
code:
    Private Sub Form1_Resize(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Resize
        If Me.WindowState = FormWindowState.Minimized Then
            NotifyIcon1.Visible = True
        Else
            NotifyIcon1.Visible = False
        End If
    End Sub


Is this the sort of thing needed? (Again, I'm really not experienced at all with .Net so it may not be 100% correct :P)

Of course using this then the NotifyIcon1.Visible property would have to be changed programmatically at runtime at the form's load procedure (NotifyIcon1.Visible  = false) or by setting its property in the VB IDE.
;p

edit: The file has been updated. Gonna re update with wut I need.

Currently working on an options menu that will allow users to chose whethere or not to minimize the program to systray, or minimize it normally, whenever they click the minimize button

Version 0.8 now has an options menu that allos users to decide whethere to hide the program in system tray or not when it is minimized.

The program doesn't hide in systray for me.

When minimizing the systray icon does appear, but the taskbar "bar" :P, also stays.

code:
Private Sub Form1_Resize(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Resize
        If Me.WindowState = FormWindowState.Minimized Then
            NotifyIcon1.Visible = True
            Me.ShowinTaskbar = False
        Else
            NotifyIcon1.Visible = False
        End If
    End Sub


and at the code for the Show the program button on the systray menu you should set Me.ShowinTaskbar on True again :)

this has already been fixed for the next build which will no longer be beta. It will be a final version and the theme will be changed to blue. Just waiting on an icon for the program to release it
