In fact this makes sense and might be true, however it's not what I posted. There really are two Image meters, [Chrome] and [ChromeName], both got by cropping two disting parts of the same image. But the positions of these meters are set to X=(-#X1#) for the first (the left) one (in this case [Chrome]) and to X=0R for the second (the right) one ([ChromeName]). This means there is no space between them and before I posted the code, gave it a try. Perfectly worked (works). So either there something has been modified, or I have no idea.

So Jason, please post the incriminated code exactly as you have it now on the skin which gives the issue.

Well, you simply can't continue to use that image that has both the icon and the text as is, or it's just not going to work sliding it from the right instead of from the left. You need to cut out just the icon, and use that along with a String meter for the text, as I did, or create two Image meters, one for the icon and one for the string, which is what Balala did. Just using your existing image, and setting it to a static size of 45X45 is going to make it all squished and stretched, which is what you are getting.

Is this code working and is it sliding in the meter?
Anyway here is a solution:

Code: Select all

[Rainmeter]
Update=1000
BackgroundMode=2
SolidColor=0,0,0,1

[Metadata]
Name=unFold
Author=DevilRev

[Variables]
X1=-150
U=[!UpdateMeasureGroup Sliders][!UpdateMeterGroup Items][!Redraw]

[MeterContainer]
Meter=Image
SolidColor=255,240,0
X=0
Y=0
W=150
H=50
MouseOverAction=[!CommandMeasure MeasureSlide "Stop 1"][!CommandMeasure MeasureSlide "Execute 2"]
MouseLeaveAction=[!CommandMeasure MeasureSlide "Stop 2"][!CommandMeasure MeasureSlide "Execute 1"]

[Chrome]
Meter=Image
Group=Items
ImageName=#@#Buttons\Transparent\Chrome.png
H=50
X=(Abs(#X1#))
DynamicVariables=1
LeftMouseDownAction=[!SetOption "#CURRENTSECTION#" "ImageAlpha" "150"][!UpdateMeter "#CURRENTSECTION#"][!Redraw]
LeftMouseUpAction=[!SetOption "#CURRENTSECTION#" "ImageAlpha" "255"]["Chrome.exe"][!UpdateMeter "#CURRENTSECTION#"][!Redraw]
RightMouseDownAction=[!Update]
Container=MeterContainer

[MeasureSlide]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=ActionTimer
Group=Sliders
ActionList1=Repeat Left,5,30
Left=[!SetVariable X1 "(Clamp(#X1#-5,-150,0))"]#U#
ActionList2=Repeat Right,5,30
Right=[!SetVariable X1 "(Clamp(#X1#+5,-150,0))"]#U#
DynamicVariables=1
I had to add a [MeterContainer] meter, because when the [Chrome] meter is sliding in from left, it starts from a point which ia outside of the skin, to left, so it's not visible. But if it's sliding from right, it is visible, unless you're setting a smaller width for the skin, than the position where initially the meter is. This would be another solution, but since we anyway need a meter which has to hovering the mouse over to start the meter sliding, I decided to add the [MeterContainer] container meter.
I moved the MouseOverAction and MouseLeaveAction options to this meter. Now as described, the [Chrome] meter slides in when you're hovering the mouse over the container. I also replaced the X option of the [Chrome] meter (X=(Abs(#X1#))), to get it sliding from right. The value of this variable in your initial code has been increased from -150 to 0 and if we apply an Abs function (as did above), the X position of the meter is decreasing from 150 to 0, which led to a sliding from right to left.
Also note that I replaced the [!Update] bang used into the LeftMouseDownAction and LeftMouseUpAction options of the [Chrome] meter with [!UpdateMeter "#CURRENTSECTION#"][!Redraw], because when you're setting new values for the ImageAlpha option of the Image meter, there is no need to update the whole skin, it's enough to update only the [Chrome] meter itself.
I didn't know the size of the Chrome.png image, used into the [Chrome] meter, so I added an arbitrary width for the [MeterContainer] meter (set it to 150). If this is not the proper value (and it probably isn't) modify the value accordingly. But if the width of the [Chrome] meter is larger then 150, you have to modify beside the W option of the [MeterContainer] meter, the formulas used into the Left and Right options of the [MeasureSlide] measure as well. If you don't know how to deal with this, please let me know, to can assist you.
Does my above code work and does it properly?
Hi balala, i do some retraced the previous chat that we had and found that this code works but the chrome icon disappear, see the gif below.

I'm sorry, but if you're moving the mouse so quickly, the posted image is completely useless. :confused:

Sorry, but no such issues here. Using the above posted code by you, this is what I get:

So, don't know what to say...

The edge codes for the gif are as above.
The posted code is practically the same as the original code of Edge.ini. In fact there is one single difference, namely in the LeftMouseUpAction option of the [Edge] meter.

Please post once again the actual code. I suppose you accidentally have removed something, but let's see...
