Changed skin update rate in the [Rainmeter] section from '1' to '200'; the lowest possible rate is '16'.
Added DefaultUpdateDivider=5 to the [Rainmeter] section to make the skin default update rate '1000' (200 * 5).

Modified sections [Meters] and [Measures] as comments ;Meters and ;Measures.

Added [MeasureBlink] which toggles between the value of '0' and '1'.
Modified your IfAboveAction of both up/down measures to set the FontColor transparency value to (170+(85*[MeasureBlink:])).
This will cause the arrows to blink when there is activity.
Added UpdateDivider=1 to measures and meters related to the 'blink' effect.

Added DynamicVariables=1 to [MeterNET_DL_01_TXT] and [MeterNET_UP_01_TXT] sections to respomd to 'blink' changes.

Removed (commented out) the invalid line Index=1 in [MeasureNET_DL_CALC] and [MeasureNET_UP_CALC] measures.

Spaced sections for easier readability.

You are welcome.

To change the blink rate you can change [Rainmeter] Update= to a new value (lower for faster, higher for slower).
If you change that, I would recommend also changing the DefaultUpdateDivider= to a value, when multiplied by your new skin update value, equals close to 1000.

Perfect! I tested it here and it was very good! I organized the code better too.
Thanks a lot for the help! I just had a doubt,

in the formula, what is the purpose of "%2"?

Code: Select all

[MeasureBLINK]
DynamicVariables=1
UpdateDivider=1
Measure=Calc
Formula=(MeasureBLINK+1)%2

...
The %2 calculates the remainder/modulus of [MeasureBLINK] with respect to 2, and is what causes it to flip back and forth between 0 and 1:
The overall formula will add 1 to the current value, divide by 2, keep only the remainder, then will use that value on the next update of [MeasureBLINK].
If you open Manage Rainmeter, click Open log, Skins, then your current config, you'll see [MeasureBLINK] cycling between 0 and 1.
