cool effects and very nice graphics. i like it a lot.

if you would like some critique:
the interface was confusing for me. when i clicked on the little graphic on the bottom left, i was not expecting to open a settings dialog, but rather a link to the site.
similar in the settings dialog. here i was not expecting links, but rather a way to switch between the different pictures in the skin.

It was to be just like you write but the problem is that to display photos and logos for the appropriate applied this approach:

Code: Select all

[MeasureSlideShow]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=QuotePlugin
PathName=#ImagePath#
FileFilter=#FileFilter#
Subfolders=#SubFolders#
Disabled=0
Substitute="#ImagePath#":"",".jpg":"",".png":""
UpdateDivider=#UpdateCalc#

[Wall]
Meter=IMAGE
ImageName=#ImagePath#[MeasureSlideShow].jpg
X=6
Y=4
W=460
H=224
PreserveAspectRatio=2
DynamicVariables=1
UpdateDivider=#UpdateCalc#

[Logo]
Meter=IMAGE
ImageName=#ImagePath#[MeasureSlideShow].png
X=15
Y=200
DynamicVariables=1
UpdateDivider=#UpdateCalc#
LeftMouseDownAction= ?????????????????????????????????????
And here a question? I have 8 links, and [MeasureSlideShow] which returns a number.
Let's say that the links will put in variables and it would look like
1 = http://twistedsifter.com/category/picture-of-the-day/
2 = http://www.bing.com/
and so on
is there any possibility to do something in this direction?
LeftMouseDownAction=! Execute [#[MeasureSlideShow]#]

A second issue is how to get QuotePlugin or [MeasureSlideShow] to return a specific number to view a certain image and that using !Update will be as if a normal update is made?
Because here must match the counter to animation was synchronized with the changing images.And that the !Update doing that [cUpdate] start counting from the beginning
I can not use the !Refresh every time he would have taken pictures

Code: Select all

[cUpdate]
Measure=Calc
Formula= (cUpdate+1) % #UpdateCalc#
DynamicVariables=1

don't really have the time to find a solution now, but using the RANDOM function in a Calc measure might be a better starting point than using the Quote plugin.

I do not see the difference! In any solution I get the number of :uhuh:
