Simply replace the Shape4 option name with Shape3, because those Shape options have to be numbered continuously.

In addition to what balala said (faster than me this time), you might also want to remove the 2nd occurrence of X= and Y= lines. The X and Y options deal with the meter's position, and not with the actual shape one. Since this is a single meter (even though it contains more "shapes"), it only needs one X & Y occurrence (obviously, this occurrence can be ignored as well if X=0 and Y=0, since there would be no point in setting up what are already the "default" values for those options).

I have a question about rotating a shape.
In this case see example...

Code: Select all

[Rainmeter]
Update=20
DynamicWindowSize=1
AccurateText=1

[mrotate]
Measure=Calc
Formula=(mrotate % 360) + 1
MaxValue=360

FRAME_UPE]
Meter=SHAPE
X=0
Y=40
Shape=Path MyPath | StrokeWidth 0 | Fill Color 255,0,0,255 | Rotate [mrotate],5,8
MyPath=5,0 | LineTo 10,16 | LineTo 5,10 | LineTo 0,16 | ClosePath 1
DynamicVariables=1
When finished, it should be the needle of a wind direction compass.
The way I have the code (here in the example), the needle rotates too.
BUT, the look is as if the needle deforms as it rotates, which visually looks like a 3D effect. So it has a depth effect (like in a 3D space), but I don't want/need that.
What am I missing here or have I not understood about this topic?

The needle should be 10pixels wide and 16pixels high.
If I understood correctly, I need to specify the center of the needle in the rotate. So 5 for width (half of 10) and 8 for height (half of 16) ...right? Or am I here Youkai-typically once again on the wrong track??? :Whistle :oops: :???:

The needle is not deformed, it's just "cropped" by the coordinates / dimensions of the meter / skin. Setting a background for the skin makes that clearer:

Code: Select all

[Rainmeter]
Update=20
DynamicWindowSize=1
AccurateText=1
BackgroundMode=2
SolidColor=255,255,0,255

[mrotate]
Measure=Calc
Formula=(mrotate % 360) + 1
MaxValue=360

[FRAME_UPE]
Meter=Shape
X=0
Y=40
Shape=Path MyPath | StrokeWidth 0 | Fill Color 255,0,0,255 | Rotate [mrotate],5,8
MyPath=5,0 | LineTo 10,16 | LineTo 5,10 | LineTo 0,16 | ClosePath 1
DynamicVariables=1
Also, setting the X to, say, 40, cancels the unwanted effect. Of course, this is not the proper way to solve this (it was meant just to show what happens), but rather to rethink the values you give to the path coordinates and the center of rotation in order to make it look right. In other words, the shape should be moved to the right a bit, so that when it's rotated at 90 degrees, the "length" (i.e. 16) of the needle isn't "cropped" / "cut off" because you initially set the (horizontal) coordinates taking into account only the needle's "width" (i.e. 10).

You probably now think you should have a (16,16) "viewport" for the shape, do you? :D Wrong: the shape is "spanning" inside a (10,16) rectangle, but when this imaginary rectangle rotates, you need to allow its diagonal fit the "viewport". According to Pythagoras' Theorem, it's SQRT(10^2+16^2), i.e. the square root of the sum between the rectangle's width and height squares, aka around 19, that you should consider. Bottom line, you should draw your needle in the center of a (19,19) "viewport", so that no part of that shape is cut off when rotating.

Hopefully I've been clear with this - if you need more help or can't figure out things by yourself, I'll be around. ;-)

EDIT: Couldn't help it, so, here's the path coordinates for your shape to be displayed in a (20,20) imaginary "viewport":

Code: Select all

MyPath=10,2 | LineTo 15,18 | LineTo 10,12 | LineTo 5,18 | ClosePath 1
You can leave the other things unchanged. For the record, 5 pixels to the left and right of the shape (since 5+10+5=20) and 2 pixels to the top and bottom (since 2+16+2=20) of the shape will be "empty" for its original position - these "empty" areas are roughly what would be needed for Rainmeter not cutting off any part of the (opaque) shape while the latter is rotating.

EDIT2: Or, even easier, without modifying anything from the path coordinates, just set the appropriate X and Y for the meter (the right and bottom sides will dynamically adjust because the skin has DynamicWindowSize=1):

Code: Select all

X=5
Y=2

First of all, thank you for your answer/help.

Pythagoras ... Oh God Math .... O.O

I think I have understood it so far, or not ...

Currently it looks like this in my skin:

Means, if I set your example path, it knocks the needle out of the middle of course. That's why in the posted code the MyPath is also at 5,0. So I have it in the middle, in the current case.
Whether I am correct with it now, is not completely clear to me despite your super explanation however. I think times rather not. Blitzmerker in things Rainmeter I'm not currently (too much else in the head just now).

Generally I have in the gesamtem Skin something unusual coordinates. Since this is in total a clock (with alarm clock function) and weather station. The whole thing then still set in enstprechende containers.
I know, say nothing. Why simple, if it also goes so beautifully complicated :oops:

Well, if no part of the needle is cut off, you are correct - as simple as that. But seeing your X is 10 and the shape is similarly dimensioned, I believe it's all good. The minimum for X in your case was roughly 5, as per my last edit, so 10 is more than ok. ;-)

Well then I'll leave it that way for now. Time will tell if I'm in line with the coordinates.

The reason I am teasing is that I have shown the compass with pictures (* .png files) beforehand. But since my goal is to code a suite that is as economical as possible (storage space and CPU performance) (I remember our conversation with my Visualizer a few weeks ago), I am now trying to replace the images with shapes.

Anyway, thanks again for the help :)

PS .: Yeah, I only saw your EDIT now
