console-control

Arguments: &key tray tray-exit close maximize minimize size show title

This function is useful on Windows only. The function is not defined on UNIX and Linux (the symbol exists but does not have a function definition). This function controls the behavior and features of the program icon in the Windows system tray.

This function only works if the Lisp or Lisp application was started with the Lisp console. If Lisp was started with the +c command-line argument (meaning no console), console-control has no effect. See Command line arguments in startup.htm for details of command-line arguments. Note that arguments other than +c allow you to have the console created but hidden. The Common Graphics project system allows you to specify no console: see the Enable Debugging of Runtime Errors checkbox on the Project Manager Build Tab.

The keyword arguments are as follows. They are orthogonal, meaning that any can be specified to any value regardless of the values of the other arguments (although specifying :tray nil and :tray-exit t is illogical, since there is no tray icon to use to exit). A call that specifies no value for a keyword argument does not change the current value (does not, that is, cause it to revert to some initial value or default).
