How to replace system tray icon with graph/chart



  • Hello all.

    I'm attempting to create an Qt Quick application that places a graph on the system tray on OsX that replaces the system tray icon. This graph is updated every second by a thread (something like iStats Menus tray graphs). And also if the graph is clicked to show a menu (classic action of a system tray icon).

    Any hints or information on how to achieve that are welcome.

    Than you in advance for any information.



  • @Atonicus IMHO the simplest way to do that is to paint the graph on a pixmap, and then set this pixmap as system tray icon.
