What do I have to write behind LeftMouseUpAction= to open a path in the @Resources folder?

gtjgtj » January 4th, 2019, 5:19 pm

I am a beginner at Rainmeter and new here in this forum.
I have a seemingly simple question:

What do I have to write behind LeftMouseUpAction= to open a path in the @Resources folder?

I already tried LeftMouseUpAction=[#@#Folder\] - but it doesn't work. :(

Who can help me?

What you've tried is alright, but if the path contains spaces, you have to quote it. Try this: LeftMouseUpAction=["#@#Folder\"]

The folder name does not contain any spaces.
The folder path should be #@#Fonts, which I want to open with a click.

(...Rainmeter\mySkinset\@resources\Fonts)

With LeftMouseUpAction= ["# @ # Fonts \"] it doesn't work. When I execute the click the Rainmeter.net website always opens...

With LeftMouseUpAction= ["# @ # Fonts \"] not, but with LeftMouseUpAction=["#@#Fonts"] it should have to, especially if a #@#Fonts path really exists.
what is the exact and full path of the folder you would like to open?

The full Path is D:\User\Jens\Rainmeter\Skins\GTJLCARS_01\@Resources\Fonts

Are you working with a skin contained into the GTJLCARS_01 config? Because since the path doesn't contains spaces at all, both LeftMouseUpAction=["#@#Fonts"] and LeftMouseUpAction=[#@#Fonts] should have to work.

I've been there before. If you created the folder "@Resources" yourself make sure you didn't make a typo like "@Resurces" (check the folder to make sure that this is how it's called) or something like that. Also, make sure your path doesn't have a typo either if for some reason you wrote it yourself by looking at it and typing it. It is most certainly a typo if you say that the website opens when you put that.

OK, I just entered the whole folder path (via drag and drop) - so it worked.
Then I deleted everything except "Fonts" and added #@#.
That worked too.

Now it looks like this: LeftMouseUpAction=["#@#Fonts"]

What was different than before? Do you see my mistake? :(

Thank you for your help :)

The only difference I see is the quotation, which first time wasn't added. But if the previously posted path:

is correct, those quotations shouldn't have to matter, as the path doesn't contain spaces. I don't know what to say. Are you absolutely sure the config's name is not GTJLCARS 01 (with space, not with underline)? Maybe try one more time to remove them, to see what happens in this case.
