Sorry to resurrect this old discussion... :oops:
This is a great plugin, however, if I could ask, Is there any possibility to change a little the code, keeping backward compatibility, for a future update?

I explain, the "problem" is that every time I choose a file or path, it refreshes all the skins loaded, it's ok for once, but if you're using this plugin to setup a skin suite, the refreshes are a lot and maybe you're connected to internet and some skins are retrieving some informations from various sites, that's really not so good.
I came to a point, rewriting my configuration skin, avoiding all the unneeded refreshes and updating only the skins affected by the changes, now only RainFile is still refreshing everything every time...

The point is, maybe add a "-r" option to avoid a full refresh.
If you don't use the option, everything will be the same as before and all the old skins will work properly.
If you use the option, you can update/refresh only the skins that really need it, with a custom bang.

Thanks.

I have this idea for RainFile.
Was making a skin, and need a certain other skin to do something if the user quit RainFile without
choosing a file.

In the InputText plugin there is a function called: OnDismissAction.

"A bang or action that is executed when an active InputText field is dismissed without hitting Enter to execute the plugin commands."

So if the user of the skin clicked on the red X to close down the window, a bang is then executed.

Could be a nice feature for RainFile as well.

Michael.

The "Pieces" parameter saved my bacon. Tnx for the addition.

Could you add support for Internet shortcuts?
Steam uses internet URL shortcuts like this:

Getting this error:

My code is like this:
LeftMouseUpAction=["#RainFile#" "File" "Variables" "Lpath#EditingPathNumber#_STEAM_URL" "#Var#" "C:\"][!Refresh Morpheus\Launcher][!Refresh]
(#WorkTime# = 1 ? #Work# : ([mEnergyLoss:%] > 100 ? #SleepMode# : #Rainmeter#))
