Ok, nice tip Necoro! Thanks, but is not what i wanted.
I have already a context menu which shows and hide the app, but i want to
replace that by doing on click on the systrayicon (left button click) to
show and to hide:

Click on systray, hide...
Click on systray, show...

and so on and on...

By the way could you be more specific to my example app? Sorry to disturb
you. :$



Yes, i saw the QT example docs of systray, but does not help me much about
the problem of when i close the app.
And like i said, i dont know nothing about C++... indeed is not too dificult
to compare or convert the example to python/qt, but well... i am doing  my
I will search later about that problem on QT forums.
