Aha. Right. Now I see what are you talking about and it's true. Didn't know about this small difference.jsmorley wrote: ↑December 11th, 2019, 4:38 pmCorrect, but all other meters, except Shape and Button, will detect the mouse on ANY solid bit of the underlying meter container. That may mean that there is a SolidColor that isn't set with a transparency of zero, or there may be another meter "behind" the meter that has solid bits, or even the overall background of the skin may have solid bits behind the meter.
With most meters, the rule is "If the mouse is inside the W and H of the meter container, and the pixel it is over is solid, for ANY reason, the mouse is detected.".
Shape (and button) meters are entirely different, as they only detect the mouse on solid bits of the Shape or Button images created by the meter, and don't care a bit about the size or transparency of the underlying meter container or anything behind it.
The rub is that ToolTip does not obey these new, and far better, mouse detection rules when used on a Shape or Button meter. It falls back to the old rules used by most other meters in Rainmeter.
Mind you, for many if not most other meter types, the original rules are not a bad thing. It makes clicking on a String meter far easier than if only the actual font glyph itself detected the mouse. You just set SolidColor=0,0,0,1 on the String meter, and the behavior is much better. In the case of Shape though, the shape itself may extend "outside" the meter container, and you surely want the mouse detected in that case.
So, again: there always is something to be learned...
