New Release: Tray Icon for DataFlex 2021 and 2022


With the DataFlex Tray Icon Library you can minimize applications to the system tray instead of the taskbar. The Library is now available for DataFlex 2021 and DataFlex 2022!

Why use Tray Icon

The system tray shows in the right side of the taskbar and holds several applications and actions. For example you can easily control the sound of your computer, the internet connection, and safely remove hardware from the system tray. You can also add applications to the system tray. To do that with DataFlex applications you need the DataFlex Tray Icon Library.

Using the system tray can be useful in several cases:

  • It’s useful for applications that continuously run, but you don’t actively use all the time. Think of Microsoft Teams, Outlook etc.
  • Or for applications you frequently use, but you don’t want them to take up space in the taskbar
  • When closing an application used in the system tray it doesn’t completely shut down, which results in a faster start up time when opening the application again
  • You can add options for the context menu to the applications in the system tray. You can add elements to the pop up menu when right clicking the icon. Think of actions mostly used for that application
