Is QSystemTrayIcon Example removed from Qt5?
Qt used to have this example and now it is gone in Qt5.
Is this intentional or is this a bug?
The class is still there in Qt 5 (see "here":http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/QSystemTrayIcon.html). Try using the example from Qt 4. It should require just a few modifications to port it.
Yes, I know. I just spent some time looking for it in Qt Creator and didn't find, so I wonder if it is a bug or intentional. I could help port it if needed for new Qt version
I have found it in 5.2.0-src/qtbase/examples/widgets/desktop/systray.
Thanks. But the documentation page is still missing, right?
There is a text reference on that page to see the example, but the page was removed:
See also QDesktopServices, QDesktopWidget, Desktop Integration, and System Tray Icon Example.
That may very well be a bug, then.
As you've noticed, numerous existing examples have gone "missing" in Qt 5 (the code is still there, but they no longer get built as part of the documentation).
Other examples are "bare-bones": They have screenshots and links to source code, but have no descriptions (e.g. http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/qtquick-demos-samegame-example.html )

For your reference, here are the changes that allowed the Same Game example (among others) to appear in the "Qt Quick Code Samples":http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/qtquick-codesamples.html page:
The Same Game example was in a similar situation as the QSystemTrayIcon example -- the code was there, but the page wasn't visible until samegame.qdoc was added
