FiddlerCore... https://www.telerik.com/fiddlercore. Only $3000 per year! Cha-ching!
NetBalancer... https://netbalancer.com. Only $49.95. :) Appears to have an API you could hit with WebParser?

Yikes... both of those also sound overkill for what we need here, never mind the licensing part. Quite a shame there's no free alternative.

I think i come bearing bad news. Latest HWiNFO seems to have been heavily gimped in the last update pushing a paid version: https://www.hwinfo.com/version-history/
As a result the GPU widget no longer seems to work after updating. I will be reverting to the previous version but this needs to be investigated further.

A major update to the Gadgets has been released!

NOTE:
  • The CPU Meter and GPU Meter have undergone major revisions to work with HWiNFO 7.x. You will need to install and reconfigure HWiNFO and reconfigure your HWiNFO settings.
  • If you were using the compact version of the Weather Meter, upgrading will cause your skin to disappear. Reselect the skin and then check the new Use Compact Gadget option in the Settings.


6.0.0 - 2021-04-06
  • Added Update Checker to optionally allow checking for new Gadgets releases.
  • Enhanced Weather Meter to show up to 10 weather alerts.
  • Enhanced Weather Meter to show moon zenith angle (tilt) and percentage illumination (thanks Mordasius and raiguard!).
  • Revised Weather Meter to open weather radar map instead of Google Maps when location name is clicked.
  • Removed Weather Meter (Small) variant Gadget; the compact version of the Weather Meter is now available as an optional setting.
  • Enhanced All CPU Meter to add option to show a single temperature value instead of per-core temperatures (intended for AMD users, but works for Intel users too).
  • Enhanced All CPU Meter to improve performance monitoring capability (optional Windows 10 style vs. legacy Windows 7 style).
  • Revised All CPU Meter to improve appearance of CPU name display for AMD and 11th Gen Intel CPUs.
  • Revised All CPU Meter so HWiNFO takes priority over CoreTemp and SpeedFan when using multiple monitoring utilities.
  • Revised All CPU Meter to add option to hide RAM graph line.
  • Revised All CPU Meter and GPU Meter fan configuration settings.
  • Revised All CPU Meter and GPU Meter for use with HWiNFO 7.x (free version). Older versions are not supported.
  • Removed Battery Meter (for HWiNFO) variant Gadget.
  • Updated Intel logo per new corporate rebrand.
  • Corrected Network Meters (again) for issue where the peak speed could be capped when more than 1 adapter is active.
  • Revised (non-Pro) Network Meters for rare case where session totals can show negative values.
  • Added Top Process Meters into Gadgets suite.
  • Revised all Gadgets to better emulate original AddGadgets.com appearance and to improve Settings behavior (fewer full refreshes).
  • Revised all Gadgets to add option to hide graphs, where applicable.
  • Replaced RainRGB with ColorPickerPlus to eliminate false positive antivirus warnings (thanks raiguard!).

NOTE for those who use the Network Meter Pro and Wireless Meter Pro skin variants: The NetMonitor service has not been changed in this release, so there is no need to update this service.

Great work :thumbup: , looks awesome on the new ultrawide - up until today I was still using the original windows gadgets!

Got everything setup the way I want except the calendar, I would like to remove the gray boxes around the days of the week and just have the black background. Can you point me in the direction of where/how I would make this change?

Sure! Open the include file CalendarStyles.inc, which is in the same folder as the Calendar skin. Find the meter LblTxtSty and comment out the SolidColor and SolidColor2 lines, like so:

Code: Select all

;Day Label Styles
[LblTxtSty]
...
;SolidColor=80,80,80,255
;SolidColor2=100,100,100,255
...
Refresh the skin and you should be good to go.

(Tip: this will apply (roughly) to almost any skin that is based on LuaCalendar unless it has been heavily modified. LuaCalendar uses styles to control the appearance of almost every display element. If you want to change the appearance of any other element, this is most likely the file to look at.)
