Close button should minimise only

Hi,

I think that the close window button should just minimise phonerlite to the status tray (the same as how bittorrent works) 
Or at the very least an option to set this as how it should work.


It is VERY annoying after a call I click disconnect then X to close the window then it asks if you want to close it or not, which I never want to close it. so then I click no and minimise the window.

Thanks for a great program.

If you want to minimize the application - just click the minimize button. Of you want to close the application  - click the X button.
I will definitely NOT change that!

The original poster talked about PhonerLite. There is not such opton and there never will be one.

At least, webgurupc, you do have this option in Phoner, such as "Show volume sliders", answering machine, ability to save records where you want, and more ... http://phoner.de/download_de.htm

At least you could make it an option so that it works this way if the option was selected.

It is very annoying seeing this main box appear after every call.

Most systray resident programs work in this manner.
e.g.
TeamViewer.
Dell Audio
Pushbullet
Onenote (opened from systray)
In fact I've just been through everyone of my systray icons and couldn't find one that doesn't. Seems Phonerlite is the exception.  Cry

I hate such behavior in other applications! I never will implement this. Sorry.
There is a minimize button - use that one!

Just because you don't like it doesn't mean you should rule it out.

If there is one thing I have learnt in 35 years of software development, its give users the option to customise how the software works where ever possible. Your users will love you for it. 
If you don't like the option don't turn it on, but don't deny other users from having it.

Clearly you did it in Phoner.  Tongue 

Its because every other systray app works this way that users are so used to hitting X to put it back in the system tray to await the next call.
Why should your app be any different?

It was my biggest fail that I put an option for this in Phoner.

Maybe you don't know it: I develop Phoner and PhonerLite for my personal use only. It is just a hobby project for me and I just share it for others. Therefore I can decide for my own what I implement and what not.

Once again: Use the minimize button! The functionality is available!

Fixed it with a single line of code.   Smiley

I used  AutoIT 
and this code

winsetstate("PhonerLite","",@SW_HIDE)

I compiled it into and exe and called it MinimisePhonerLite

Then I just added that to the Options, External Applications, Call Disconnection section.

Presto.
Now when a call is finished PhonerLite tucks away nicely in the systray.

Great! Interesting program, this AutoIT! So you got what you wanted.  https://www.deepl.com/translator#fr/en/On n'est jamais mieux servi que par soi-même  ..  You are never better served than by yourself.

AutoIt v3 is a freeware BASIC-like scripting language designed for automating the Windows GUI and general scripting. It uses a combination of simulated keystrokes, mouse movement and window/control manipulation in order to automate tasks in a way not possible or reliable with other languages (e.g. VBScript and SendKeys). AutoIt is also very small, self-contained and will run on all versions of Windows out-of-the-box with no annoying “runtimes” required! https://www.autoitscript.com/site/autoit/

AutoIt ist eine Software zum Ausführen von Skripten, mit denen hauptsächlich Abläufe unter Microsoft Windows automatisiert werden können, aber auch komplette Windows-Programme geschrieben werden können. AutoIt ist Freeware und läuft unter NT, 2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8 und 10. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/AutoIt
