Happy its working out for you
Remember that the .dll is loaded by explorer and doesn't run in its own process so having the "exit" button would just kill explorer...
Given that my 'suite'/config is basically contained within the taskbar, I'd be remiss to not try this, and have it working almost perfectly for me:
Click to animate, shadow quality is due to the recorder settings and not anything Rainmeter
I definitely haven't gone through all possibilities, but only a couple bugs I've seen so far: updating individual parts of a skin [!UpdateMeter MeterName]
seems to make the toolbar's position reset to the left side, while the normal [!Update]
work fine. For what I regularly use, the only plugin that doesn't seem to work is the WebNowPlaying plugin. In the meantime I found the Chrome extension streamkeys
along with the Rainmeter MediaKey measure, and for me it does the main Play/Pause/Next/Previous that I use (will still keep WebNowPlaying on my original config), and for personal use I definitely plan to use this.
If I do release my config into a .rmskin, I'd still use my original approach following the official Rainmeter installation along with my mouse/autohide method I made as it works well enough, and if people ask further then this is an unofficial option presented as is.
Just from my thought, I think the amount of desktop-based Rainmeter skins and interest heavily outnumber the cases of taskbar-only skins, so further I don't think it's really needed for any possible official integration; most people are interested in desktop-sized configurations, and there's only so much you can pack into the taskbar and still have the information useable.
And I definitely agree with that it shouldn't try to replace anything already native to the Windows taskbar (ex. application launcher, system tray), just the role of adding an informational display mainly and some of the standard things that Rainmeter already offers (ex. media keys, extra shortcuts like emptying the Recycle Bin, etc.), and it's basically already there I'd say. Even the official Microsoft toolbars only go so far feature-wise. Really I'd say it kind of good gatekeeper for people's skill and creativity having it non-official and a bit more involved.
Needless to say, fantastic work srs.
