TrayIndicators: lock keys indicators in system tray

08 Mar 2019, 19:31

I'm posting a simple script that shows the keyboard indicators for the lock keys (NumLock, CapsLock and ScrollLock) in notification area of Taskbar in Windows. There are a few programs available with the same functionality, but none of them quite have the features or the icon legibility that I wanted. Notably it has different icon sizes for different Windows DPI scaling for maximum sharpness, a few color options, and the ability to configure it to only show when there are lock keys turned on.

Please feel free to post suggestions!

Hi ikonomov,

Thank you. It looks very good. Why not set the default indicator icon size automatically in the ini file based on the current Windows DPI scaling? See the A_ScreenDPI built-in value.

Cheers!

iPhilip, thank you for the great suggestion and pointing out the exact thing that I need! I was actually looking up earlier today how I could do this, and only found DPIScale, which wasn't much help, and gave up lol. I'll set the setting in the .ini for accepting an "auto" input, which will adjust it automatically, and to allow manually to adjust the size if a number is entered manually the way it is right now. Perfect!
