    Out of curiosity, does that app stay on top in XP? On Win7 it seems to go behind other forms, which kinda defeats point I guess. Or it is supposed to just be in task bar, and click when needed?

    Not done any programming or coding in win 7 so not sure if the API or API's used to keep a form on top will be the same, so win 7 may ignore this and it will just go behind other apps??

    Aye, but wasn't sure if it was meant to stay on top or not :P Never used RM "like" systems.

    If anybody wants something similar, take a look here.

    SJLogoff

    I wrote it a few weeks ago for our new Vanilla network. Simply does the logging off, as well as providing the user with the currently logged on user, computer name, and IP address.

    Got a little bored so thought I'd have a play around too :P

    EdugeekLogoff.zip

    Not as shiny, or tested as any elses I bet But hey, nice to see if anyone finds any major errors/bugs/not working on XP etc etc :P

    Should be attached (Not sure if I need to attach anything more than exe, but works fine here :P)

    Hi Guys, the app is supposed to disappear behind windows and just stay on top of the taskbar, used to be like that in RM anyway so guessing it's the same with this one, if you all have a go at re-writing it I'm sure all versions will be very useful to us indeed.

    SJ Log off requests if you want to log off which is much nicer where as the version Steve has done just literally logs you off with out any input which was a doh moment for me as ended up closing down everything.

    I will have a go at this now and see what I can come up with.

    I know how to do the ip address, network is connected and also logging off etc but am stuck on the GUI side of things - any help on how to do a system tray with a popup menu that will make Form1 show / hide

    Form1 will contain the info ref ip address, username etc

    I will have the log off option in the popup menu side of things.

    I remember using NotifyIcon and all of those API's etc in vb6, can't seem to suss out how to do the system tray icon with a popup menu now, frustrating me a bit

    Well you clicked logoff! But yeah, guess I could make a "Are you sure" option

    In terms of GUI, Do you actual want a system tray icon? or just like the way I did it, which has no icons, just the menu? It's just aligned bottom right. And you using VB?

    ps. View your other thread <-

    This is a very good version, reminds me of the Logoff on RM CC3 - the only thing missing IMO is a bit in the network part to change password - but I'm using it now it's good.

    Yeah, when I was writing it a couple of weeks ago I looked into how to display the change password box but never came across anything. Suppose I could create a custom form and do it all myself, a bit like how RM does it. May take another look at it today.

    Alright, take another look here (Slim Jims) and download the setup file again. I've updated the software which now has the option of adding a change password button to the application. This is completely optional though, so if you want to enable the feature please run the setup and then read the INSTALL.txt.

    Enabling is a simple 3 step process, hopefully.

    I've tested here, but please feedback to me on how this works at your place. (A comment or two on my site wouldn't go a miss either )
