Simple Ping at System Tray
« on: May 11, 2014, 10:06:19 PM »
Hi, I have search all over the internet and there is very very few software that meet my expectation for ping program.  Your simple ping fits most of my requirement, and I would like to suggest for the following:-

1) Add a function to enable the floating ping display to stay at system tray, similar to what "NetSpeedMonitor 2.5.4" does.  This is very useful when playing full window game where only system bar/tray is viewable.  Floating ping display will not be friendly under this situation.  I tried my best to "pull" the floating ping display to the tray bar but there should be a easier way.



2) An option to remove the word "Ping: " to save space  :smiley:

I would need to find some code examples in VB6 on how to add things to the taskbar like that and not just a normal tray icon. I also have to make sure it works on each version of Windows as MS likes to change things on people lol
