How to separate the tray from BlackboxBar in BBzero


Best Answer crowmag , 27 November 2017 - 01:15 PM

If you use bbIconBox, you can easily create a tray by CTRL+Right-Click on the default iconbox --> New --> Tray.  If you don't want the default iconbox (Quick Launch IIRC) just CTRL+Right-Click --> Remove and remove it or any others your not interested in.

Hello, I am using bbzero as alternative shell for Windows 8.1 - 64 bits.
I don´t need all the parts of the BlackboxBar, only need the tray icons that appear on it ( the active tasks appear on another toolbar on right or left which is another plugin uploaded,). 
The reason is that I use a rainmeter top bar instead, but the rainmeter bar does not have the tray icons, so my question
is if there is a way to have the tray icons in a separated toolbar which could be customized, say choose the size, can be moved, attached to right or left borders of the screen, and autohide.
I also use rocketdock on bottom, so my idea is to have only the tray icons inside a toolbar with autohide that does not interfere with the rocketdock on bottom - I tried to do this by eliminating all the parts of the BlackboxBar, leaving only the tray and resizing to 20 or 30 % the bar, but the result was having the tray as an horizontal bar which could only be placed top or bottom, and not right or left as a vertical toolbar does - I would like to make it vertical so I can attach it to the right or left. Hope it is clear.
I am trying to create a linux or mac alike theme, with a bar on top and a dock on bottom. The top bar is a rainmeter skin, and the dock on bottom is rocketdock. So, is it possible to separate the tray from the BlackboxBar and put it in a vertical or al least square toolbar?
I will be grateful for any help.

Thanks for your help, I finally fixed the problem using the plugin bbslit, which can create a new tray, and I eliminated the BlackboxBar plugin.
