Extension Goal:

This extension adds an alert event to show a tray balloon hint. This is different than the existing PingPlotter event that changes the tray icon and shows a hint because this can be configured to show when an alert stops firing as well.

This does not change the tray icon - it only shows a balloon message there.

Required PingPlotter Pro version

This extension requires PingPlotter Pro 3.30.0p or higher.

Installation Instructions
  • Download the attachment from this post (link near the title). The file will be named "Alert Event - Tray Balloon Message.ppx".
  • Save it in your "c:\Program Files\Pingplotter Pro\scripts" directory (or the appropriate path if you've not installed to that location).
  • Close and restart PingPlotter Pro.
  • Go to the alerts setup (Edit -> Alert Setup...)
  • Create a new alert, or select one of your existing alerts you want to test this on.
  • Configure an alert event and select the "Show a tray balloon message" type.
  • Fill in the appropriate parameters and test it!
Of course, all the variables / substitutions work in the text area for the message as well.

Wrap up

If you find any issues are problems, please post a message here or send an email to support@pingplotter.com.
