Issue with system tray icon



  • Hello All,
    I need your help in solving my issue. First of all I am new to Qt. Learning using the examples. I came across an issue with system tray icon. I was able to add the system tray icon. But when I run the project, it shows only for some 2 in 10 times. In other words I should say it show only some time. Need help. Below is my code
    @
    MainWindow::MainWindow(QWidget *parent) :
    QMainWindow(parent),
    ui(new Ui::MainWindow)
    {
    ui->setupUi(this);
    ui->groupBoxProject->hide();
    createActions();
    createTrayIcon();

    }

    void MainWindow::createActions()
    {
    minimizeAction = new QAction(tr("Mi&nimize to tray"), this);
    connect(minimizeAction, SIGNAL(triggered()), this, SLOT(hide()));

     restoreAction = new QAction(tr("&Restore"), this);
     connect(restoreAction, SIGNAL(triggered()), this, SLOT(showNormal()));
    
     quitAction = new QAction(tr("&Quit"), this);
     connect(quitAction, SIGNAL(triggered()), qApp, SLOT(quit()));
    

    }

    void MainWindow::createTrayIcon()
    {
    qDebug() << "I am here";
    trayIconMenu = new QMenu(this);
    trayIconMenu->addAction(minimizeAction);
    trayIconMenu->addAction(restoreAction);
    trayIconMenu->addSeparator();
    trayIconMenu->addAction(quitAction);

     trayIcon = new QSystemTrayIcon(this);
     trayIcon->setContextMenu(trayIconMenu);
     QPixmap icon(":time1.png");
     QIcon trayIconpng = QIcon(icon);
     trayIcon->setIcon(trayIconpng);
     trayIcon->show();
    

    }
    @

    I do have added that icon in resources "qrc" file. my qrc file code is
    @
    <RCC>
    <qresource prefix="/">
    <file>time1.png</file>
    </qresource>
    </RCC>
    @
    Please let me know where I am going wrong and what steps I should take to overcome this issue.
    I am using Qt 5.3

    Also it would be great help if you can provide me some help regarding moving forward with my project. I want to take a screenshot of the application every 10 mins. Please guide me in accomplishing this.
