thanks, now one question, do I have the approval to submit your skin for SOTM
Zero at programing, zero at writing codes, so far 2 at making images
But I'm good at copy/paste, and I not always like this

Love this!
Would it be possible to also monitor the temps of the CPU as well?

Im not sure if rainmeter can do this as I am a complete noob...
Not sure if you would need additional program installed etc, but any info would help!
I was thinking to put it just below the CPU usage bars.

Thanks for any info I can get!

This is something i can look into if rainmeter supports this. You'll probably need another software running for rainmeter to pull the temp values from.

x2 on the cpu temp maybe using speedfan? Can you have it so we can display this horizontally as well? Lastly, a transparent skin would also rock.

Edit: Last thing I promise...how about the drive space changing colors if the used space is let's say above 90%. I can help with that if you want.

Great job and loving this very much!

1. Transparent Skin:
This is something that can actual be done quite easily. Open up the settings.inc file and edit the color values.

Current color settings are:

;White
color1=255, 255, 255, 255

;Dark Grey
color2=20, 20, 20, 255

;Black
color3=0, 0, 0, 255

;Blue
color4=0, 100, 175, 255

;Blue Dark
Color5=0, 50, 100, 100

;Green
color6=0, 200, 0, 200

;Green Dark
color7=0, 200, 0, 100

;Title Bar Fill
color8=0, 5, 12, 255

;Title Bar Outline
color9=50, 50, 50, 255

;Message Body
color10=0, 0, 0, 255

;Font 1
font1=255, 255, 255, 200


So what is this telling you? It's broken up into 4 sections.

red, green, blue, alpha or 255, 255, 255, 255

the values range from
0 - 255. where 0 = %0 and 255 = %100

The last set of numbers is your alpha or your transparency. setting this to 0 will make the skin completely transparent. While 255 will make the skin completely solid.

To make the main body transparent you only need to find and edit the following:

;Title Bar Fill
color8=0, 5, 12, 255

;Title Bar Outline
color9=50, 50, 50, 255

;Message Body
color10=0, 0, 0, 255

and change the last numbers to something closer to 0. If you want it to be completely transparent then change all numbers to 0.



2. Drive Space changing colors.
This is a great idea. Is there some code in rainmeter that can change the color value based on a cretin condition being met?




3. CPU Temps.
I'm looking at the plugin that maminscris posted a link to in this thread. It should be able to be graphed out just like every thing else i think.

I think since you are using perfmon to grab drive stats you should be able to get a percentage of used space versus overall disk space and change the color if the used space is above let's say 90%. I did find someone who did a battery one that does change colors based on percentage of charge and you can see it here.

BTW, I did know about the transparent background but did have issues and didn't realize why it wasn't working until I looked closer at the colors to find this:

color10=color8=0, 0, 0, 255

should be this:
color10=0, 0, 0, 255

also, your numbers need to be spaced more in the swap file section so I changed the following in the System_Monitor.ini I am using to:

Prefix="Used: "
Prefix="Free: "
Prefix="Total: "

I added the space after the :

lastly, I found the WinRing0X64...... check your other post requesting it. ;)

Dark_Wizard

color10=color8=0, 0, 0, 255 OOPS

Thanks for finding this. It should just read: color10=0,0,0,255

I'll release a fix once i get the bar color included.

I'll also be looking into your other suggestions. Thanks so much for your input i relay appreciate it. :)
