I sometimes have multiple instances of mIRC running and minimize them to the System Tray (WinXP/Vista). Hovering over the icon the tooltip only displays "mIRC". I have to restore the window to see which icon is what server.

It would be nice if the server was listed in the tooltip too, e.g. "mIRC - connected to eu.chat4all.org".

Thanks.

[Edit]: Oops I just learned about the /server -m option to connect to multiple servers in a single instance ;-)

IIRC, the systray tip text is "mIRC <your titlebar text, if any>".
If you don't want to use/manipulate the titlebar for other ends - apparently you do not - you could do something like
Code:
on *:start: updatetitlebar
on *:connect: updatetitlebar
on *:disconnect: updatetitlebar
alias -l updatetitlebar { titlebar $status - $network $iif($status != disconnected,$+([,$server,])) }
Edit: Of course that's of no use in a multi-server setup smile

Thanks Horstl, that does exactly what I wanted before I found out about multi-server options.
Never been good at scripts but learning smile
