A new question arose while was working on a skin.
Suppose there are two meters, both having Tooltips defined. There also is a container, which let visible only the first meter. Also suppose there is a solid background (another meter for instance, but might be a SolidColor on the [Rainmeter] section as well).
Even if the second meter is not visible (being outside of the container), when hovering the mouse over the place where it should be (is), the Tooltip is shown. If there is no solid background, the Tooltip is not shown.
Please take a look to the following example:
As you can see, this code has two String meters ([Meter1] displaying "One" and [Meter2] displaying "Two"), each with its own Tooltip ("First" and "Second" accordingly). The defined [MeterContainer] let visible only the [Meter1] meter, [Meter2] being outside of the container meter is not visible. Obviously, [MeterBackground] is the solid background. While [MeterBackground] is visible the tooltips of both meters ([Meter1] and [Meter2]) are shown, when hovering the mouse over the meters. If you click the first meter ([Meter1], displaying "One"), [MeterBackground] is hidden (on next click it is bring back) and the Tooltip of [Meter2] is not shown anymore (while the background is not visible).
Code: Select all
[Rainmeter] Update=1000 DynamicWindowSize=1 AccurateText=1 [StringStyle] X=0 Padding=15,5,15,5 FontColor=220,220,220 FontEffectColor=0,0,0 StringEffect=Shadow SolidColor=0,0,0,1 FontSize=18 FontFace=Segoe UI StringStyle=BOLD StringAlign=Left AntiAlias=1 Container=MeterContainer [MeterBackground] Meter=Shape X=1 Y=1 Shape=Rectangle 0,0,76,94,5 | Extend MyModifiers MyModifiers=Fill Color 0,0,0,120 | StrokeWidth 2 | Stroke Color 46,115,31,255 [MeterContainer] Meter=Image SolidColor=250,240,0 X=0 Y=0 W=76 H=42 [Meter1] Meter=STRING MeterStyle=StringStyle Y=0 Text=One TooltipText=First LeftMouseUpAction=[!ToggleMeter "MeterBackground"][!Redraw] [Meter2] Meter=STRING MeterStyle=StringStyle Y=10R Text=Two TooltipText=Second
Is normal to show the Tooltip of a not-visible meter? Is there any solution to fix this?
Thank you in advance.
