RunCommand OutputType correction

Brian » July 5th, 2018, 1:17 pm

There was an error for the OutputType option in the RunCommand documentation.
https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/plugins/runcommand/#OutputType

Some of the parameters were incorrect. There should have been no dash - in the option.

Incorrect:
[color=#FF0000]OutputType=UTF-8[/color]
[color=#FF0000]OutputType=UTF-16[/color]

Correct:
[color=#008000]OutputType=ANSI[/color]
[color=#008000]OutputType=UTF8[/color]
[color=#008000]OutputType=UTF16[/color]

Technically speaking, when the plugin is parsing this option, it accepts ANSI or UTF8 - and anything else defaults to UTF16 (which is why most skins should not be affected by this since utf-8 encoded output is very rare).
