Dynamic Menu

Post by eclectic-tech »

Would you like to be able to create a Rainmeter menu of executable items
that can be updated without having to change any code?

FEATURES
- Turn Any Directory List(s) Into Rainmeter Menus or Launchers
- Gives "Windows Explorer Enabled" Drag'n Drop capability!!
- Able to change the menu contents in Windows Explorer, and have skin update itself with a single bang
- Unlimited number of "folder menus" with up to 99 links in each (but who needs unlimited links??)
- WebParsed text files created in the @Resources folder create indexes for ANY meter

With some help from forum members (fragrant.monkey & Brian) I was able to eliminate those pesky DOS pop-up windows and make this idea work in the background.

Details are in the post and comments are in the DynamicMenu skin you can download to try.

Tear it apart and see if you can use it!


EDITS:
12-5 Expanded sort and set unique sort for each menu (DynamicMenu3.rmskin)
