Mouse over action problem

TheDeceiver » January 7th, 2019, 7:48 pm

Hello there,

I'm trying to edit this skin https://www.deviantart.com/sjoti/art/Animated-Circular-Icon-Launcher-1-2-591034487
so when i hover over an icon it will do what it currently does BUT i want it to also so a background for the specific icon...

So i tryed this:
original line inside CircleLauncher.ini was this :
MouseOverAction=[!SetOption #CURRENTSECTION# ImageTint "255,255,255"] #I#
that changes the tint

so i added the following
MouseOverAction=[!SetOption #CURRENTSECTION# ImageTint "255,255,255"] [!ActivateConfig "Circular Icon Launcher\LoL" "background.ini"] #I#

where background.ini is this:

Code: Select all

[Rainmeter]
OnRefreshAction=!ZPos "-2"

[Wallpaper]
Meter=Image
ImageName=#@#lol.png
X=0
Y=0
PreserveAspectRatio=1
I also tryed some other stuff with different paths but i cant get it to work and show the background.

When you've installed the mentioned package, the Circular Icon Launcher\LoL\background.ini skin doesn't exist. I suppose you've created it. Am I right?
If I am, have you told Rainmeter about the new skin? You have to make a Refresh all (right click the Rainmeter icon in System Tray, then click Refresh all). This way Rainmeter will know the new skin and will be able to load it. Otherwise it doesn't see the skin and as such can't load it.
In such cases the Log can be very useful. Take a look there to see if there are error messages. If I am right and Rainmeter indeed doesn't see the new skin, this will be shown in log.

balala beat me :twisted: :rofl:

As he mentioned, use the Log ('About' from the notification icon) to troubleshoot skins; it will usual tell you what isn't working.

Wow guys

I've read so much about rainmeter code and I got fooled so easily...
I just had to refresh all and not just the launcher.

It seems to work now, If anything new comes up I'll you know.

Thank you very much!!!
