Post by Mehrdad.A »

Hi, i am new here and with help of my friend i created a System Uptime widget for my desktop, and now i want when system uptime reaches 00:30:00 / 01:00:00 / 01:30:00 and 02:00:00 (or every 30 mins) play a sound file. this is possible with Rainmeter ?

Hi Mehrdad.A

Just my idea;

Code: Select all

[Rainmeter]
Update=1000
BackgroundMode=2
SolidColor=192,192,192,192

[Variables]
ChimeIntervalMinute=30

[MeasureSystemUpTime]
Measure=UpTime

[MeasureUptimeRemainder]
Measure=Calc
Formula=[MeasureSystemUpTime:] % (#ChimeIntervalMinute#*60)
IfCondition=#CURRENTSECTION#=0
IfTrueAction=[Play chime.wav]
DynamicVariables=1

[mCounter]
Meter=String
MeasureName=MeasureUpTimeRemainder
X=5
Y=5
W=150
H=15
Text=UptimeRemainder: %1
Of course, background setting in [Rainmeter] section, and [mCounter] meter are not necessary for you.

I doubt. mak_kawa's code is working perfectly.
What have to take care about is to have the chime.wav file near the skin's .ini file. Obviously if it is not there, it can't be played, creating the impression it doesn't work.
So, is that file there?
