Thanks to @ericlaw for the info on this, since version 2.4.7.2 of fiddler you can set the Tray Icon to whatever you want.

I like to know at a glance whether fiddler is connected or not, I leave mine running al the time, I have various issues with proxy servers and virtuals, sometimes it’s just easier to manage the hosts file in fiddler perhaps cos I?’m too lazy to go into admin mode and edit the real one.

fiddlerOff fiddlerOn

I used a simple red / green system you can guess which is which 🙂

To do this copy the images to your system somewhere.

Then in Fiddler open the Rules Editor (CTRL-R) and make these changes, just point at your path not mine.

static function OnAttach() {
// MessageBox.Show("Fiddler is now the system proxy");
FiddlerApplication.UI.SetTrayIcon("D:\dev\fiddlerOn.png")
}

static function OnDetach() {
// MessageBox.Show("Fiddler is no longer the system proxy");
FiddlerApplication.UI.SetTrayIcon("D:\dev\fiddlerOff.png")
}

Save it and that’s it.

If they would just give me the option now so a left click on the tray toggles between connected or not and a dbl click open fiddler. Because for me its more than just a debugger now.

Whilst I’m talking changes some more tray options (right mouse menu) that I would love, hope your listening 🙂
