Clipboard Meter - Gadgets Patch 4.0.1

Post by SilverAzide »

Clipboard-Meter.png
Clipboard Meter Gadget inspired by the well-known AddGadgets.com Windows Sidebar gadgets.

The Clipboard Meter Gadget is a collaboration between Eclectic-Tech and myself, based on his illustroClipboard+ skin with styling to match the Gadgets suite.

The installer is in the form of a patch, which will patch your existing Gadgets installation without affecting your existing configuration or layouts. If you don't have the Gadgets suite installed, it will install as a standalone skin.

  • Middle-click any unselected clip to delete it from the stack.
  • Double-click the clipboard icon to clear all clips and your Windows clipboard.
  • Allows setting to topmost window position.
  • Configurable tooltips show the text of multi-line clips.
  • Scales to any desired size.
*** Requires Rainmeter 4.3.1 or later. ***

Copy a row in MS Excel crashed the Rainmeter. .NET framework prompt.

Similar crash happened before this to Windows Gadget Clipboarder too, but seems they fixed it few days ago.

OK... not much I can do about this, as I'm not the author of the clipboard plugin. Sorry... :(

Yeah, the plugin for clipboard available for rainmeter is still far from usable, until then I will still have to use the old windows gadget for clipboard.

One small bug-report I think:
After installing the skin, the default position-setting of it is to be always on top instead of normal.
If you change it to normal and restart Rainmeter it changes this setting again to be always on top - little bit annoying :)

Hmm, I'm not seeing this behavior at all. The default position is "normal" (ZPos = 0). Toggling the value (0/1) saves the setting to the ClipboardVariables.inc file, which will then restore your preference next time the skin loads. I combed through the code and I don't see anyplace where ZPos is ever set to 1 (topmost) by default.
:confused:

Ok - thanks for the info.
I was looking into your code too and I couldn't find anything like AlwaysOnTop.
Anyway... I've deleted the clipboard folder and the 3 related ressource-files and reinstalled the skin.
The position-setting keeps now its value... sometimes Rainmeter has it's own behavior :confused:
Sorry for the bug-report :oops:

@dudebaker
9th line of code ;) I had to remove that in my copy too :P

@SilverAzide
I'm the guy who made the gnometer variant with auto-hide :P (didn't check the dates on DeviantArt, so I was surprised when I saw your post here)

Might as-well attach it(its just the .ini, you still have to throw it into the skin folder made by this skin).
This version also features:
-Matching the Gnometer suite
-auto-hide; which hides everything except the current clipboard item
-settings button removed (the settings still work, you jsut have to manually add the settings meter)
-a bug where even blank items are highlightable (I probably wont bother fixing, because its not a big deal)
-removal of the 'always on top' functions (PS any program utilizing 'always on top' can cause issues with Z-position for other applications on Windows 10)
