Icons set

Hunter230785 » November 16th, 2017, 9:33 pm

Hi!
I'm trying to write a skin with text "icons" and 2 tabs. The code below under spoiler.
The purpose is starting programs, open folders and minimizing the code. )
Please, help!

Thank you, eclectic-tech!
But I would like to write "ENPPPP..." in one line, and then assign actions to each letter (opening the program, folder, etc.).
How can I do that as starting point?

There can only be ONE of each available mouse ACTIONS on a single section. So if you write a string section with text="ENPPPP...", you cannot assign different actions to each letter, the action will apply to the entire string.

That is why I created separate sections for each letter, positioned them one after the other in one line, and assigned the left/right actions you had to each string section.

It achieves the same "look", and allows you to assign different actions, format them individually, plus have mouseover/mouseleave actions on each letter.

Not sure why you want a one long string, but if you must, there cannot be multiple common actions on individual letters.

Is this final? Or we can find a solution through the [Substitute] or the Lua script?

Yeah, it's final. It's not about how the letters are formatted or any such, it's about the fact that there can only be one of each of the mouse actions on a single meter. So to have two LeftMouseUpActions (for instance), you have to have two meters. Every option in a section in a .ini file must be unique. You can't have two of anything in a single [SectionName].
