    Oracle Calendar - System Tray icon

    User543038-Oracle
      Hi All,

      Thanks a lot in advance.

      Was wondering if there is any way to keep the Oracle Calendar client minimized to the system tray.
      Most of the times i lose interest in opening, closing the client many times in a day
      ( because i dont want to keep a taskbar icon showing for the client)

      I have checked in the Options but could not find a hint
      Please suggest if this is possible... Or is it possible to consider as an Enhancement ?

      Thnakyou once again,
      Warm Regards,
      Swathi

          I find Oracle Calendar's lack of a minimize-to-tray option intolerable.

          As a result, I've resorted to using a small utility program, Trayconizer ([http://www.whitsoftdev.com/trayconizer/]).

          There's some more info on it at [http://www.freewaregenius.com/2008/06/13/trayconizer-add-built-in-minimize-to-tray-functionality-to-your-apps/].

          In Windows, simply:

          1) Create a shortcut to the trayconizer exe
          2) Right click on the shortcut icon, select properties
          3) Select the Shortcut tab and in the Target field, specify the path of the executable to be passed as a parameter
          (e.g. "C:\Program Files\Trayconizer\Trayconizer.exe" "C:\Program Files\Oracle\Calendar\OCal.exe")

            Trayconizer does put Calendar into tray, but the reminders for events will be displayed at background, which makes them easy to miss. Are there better solutions?
