Probably by "text box" you mean an InputText plugin measure, which can be used to enter a value to a skin. Am I right?
If I am, you can add an OnDismissAction option to the plugin measure. The bangs added in this option are executed
when an active InputText field is dismissed without hitting Enter to execute the plugin commands.
If you can't figure out what to do or how does a such option work, please post a sample code you have and a description of when and what would you like to do.

A meter can't be closed. Not sure what you mean by closing it, but I suppose you'd like to hide it instead. Am I right?

Ok, then depends on what you want. There are more possibilities:
  • If want to hide it when you click ON THE SKIN, outside of the meter, add the following LeftMouseUpAction option to the [Rainmeter] section: LeftMouseUpAction=[!HideMeter "MeterToHide"][!Redraw].
  • If on the other hand you'd like to hide it when you click OUTSIDE OF THE SKIN, this also can be done, adding the following option to the same [Rainmeter] section: OnUnfocusAction=[!HideMeter "MeterToHide"][!Redraw].
  • You can add both above options, to get the meter hidden in both cases, when you click the skin or outside of it.
Obviously in all cases, [MeterToHide] is the meter which you want to hide. Use the appropriate name.

I'm glad if it did. Just in case you need, here is related help.
And in case you want to show up the hidden meter again when you're focusing onto the skin (eg clicking it), add a similar OnFocusAction option to the same [Rainmeter] section.
