Accessing local System Tray application with Javascript

P: 2
Hi,

Is it possible to pass arguments to a system tray application through java script. Actually I have built a recording application and it loads into system tray. Now I want to start or close the recording through javascript.

Any help please

hi ...

welcome to TSDN ...

i think you cannot do that with standard javascript, may be you may use the WSH or ActiveX for that ... could you tell the purpose of using javascript for that?

kind regards

I want to pass a flag value to my application that is already running in the system tray, either to start or stop the digital recording. My digital recording application starts every time the system boots so it is always up and running I am looking a procedure to contact my recording application through webpage (javascript).

hi ...

hmmm ... as i said ... i think you cannot do that with standard javascript, but may be IE, and only IE, may let you do some tricks that allow you to break out of the browser with some ActiveX-controls ... so that might be the direction where you could start further investigation, i'm not very familiar with those non standard MS stuff ... :)

kind regards
