make a motional icon RRS feed

  • Question

  • I saw in some application a motional icon for the notification icon, mostly in antivirus applications.

    how can I make it in my applications.

    I have an idea about it as following:

    Initiate a timer and let it swaping between two icons or more. Is there any other solution?

  • Your solution probably makes sense.


    If we examine the underlying Windows Shell_NotifyIcon API http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa453686.aspx, it looks like the only way you can use it is by passing in an icon.  There does not appear to be any kind of paint callback.  So, I think you're on the the right track.
