What is TrayScript?
TrayScript is a small application you run at startup that sits in your system tray and provides a context menu which runs batch scripts for any kind of task you configure. It allows you to elegantly categorise your most often run tasks and launch them very quickly.

What can it be used for?
Just about anything you can do on the console, which is ... well... everything.  TrayScript for example, can be used to create an archive backup “button” for your files to an external drive.  Or perhaps to batch convert a folder.  Basically any operation you run regularly.  Anything you can do with a Batch file you can do with TrayScript.

Why not just use batch files?
Of course, you can do that if you wish, TrayScript however gives you a nice way to build and edit these scripts, and places them on the tray for easy desktop access.  The choice is yours, TrayScript just gives you that option.

Future Features
The next major feature to come to TrayScript will be the ability to keyboard input the values of tokens (optionally) when a script is run.

Right! In my new re-doubled efforts to produce more misc tools and applications - here is the first of hopefully many.

Introducing TrayScript - which pretty much does what it says on the tin. It allows you to create and run scripts (batch files) from the System Tray. TrayScript allows you to categorise and store commonly used scripts all in one place. You could for example use it to build custom backup solutions, or trigger other common tasks that you perform on a frequent basis.

This has been partially written to test a new component that I've built to facilitate other projects, such as Kitae (and hopefully speed up future development of all Null City software) - more on that later this month. The upshot is that TrayScript was written over two evenings after all the frameworks were put in place.

TrayScript lives here: TrayScript Page

Additionally, I've also added PAD file and Version History file support to downloads on the site. So in future you will be able to see the changes made to all products, including Kitae. If available, these can be accessed at the bottom of the download panel for the file in question, as shown above.

Now that I've written this post, I've just had a new idea for the next release! :) Back to the chopping board... There are blatantly not enough hours in the day.
