I am always stumbling on RegExp, IfCondition, Substitute, !EnableMeasure...every day, every time I write/modify Rainmeter code.
"Why, why doesn't this code work?!"
"Where does this error come from?"
"I can't figure out!!"
I suppose everyone of us is experimenting such feelings sometimes, but I definitely doesn1t consider you being a noob. Just keep working...

No, it's not at all. It's pure mathematics. And math is my (our?) friend.

I for one, welcome our transformationmatrix overlord.

There are many ways to be different - there is only one way to be yourself - be amazing at it

The law of averages says what it means; even if you get everything right, you will get something wrong. Therefore; self managing error trapping initiates another set of averages - amongst the errors, some of them will not be errors, instead those instances will appear to be "luck". One cannot complain of the 'appearance' of 'infinite regress of causation', even if it does not have a predictable pattern, only that is requires luck to achieve.

Stay tuned, if interested...
And here is the promised example. The following skin has an initially not rotated yellow rectangle. You can set the coordinates of the center of rotation, through the CenterX and CenterY variables. Take care these coordinates are relative to the position of the [MeterTransformationMatrix] meter. For instance for CenterX=0 and CenterY=0 you'll get the meter rotated around its upper left corner.
You also have to set the rotation angle. Note that a positive angle means anticlockwise rotation, while a negative angle means clockwise rotation.
If you click the yellow rectangle, you get it rotated.
The code:

Code: Select all

``````[Rainmeter]
Update=-1
AccurateText=1
BackgroundMode=2
SolidColor=0,0,0,100
SkinWidth=450
SkinHeight=350

[Variables]
Angle=-30
CenterX=125
CenterY=75
Rotate=0

[MeterTransformationMatrix]
Meter=Image
SolidColor=255,240,0
X=100
Y=100
W=250
H=150
DynamicVariables=1
LeftMouseUpAction=[!SetVariable Rotate "(1-#Rotate#)"][!UpdateMeter "#CURRENTSECTION#"][!Redraw]``````
Don't be afraid of the above code, it's not so complicated as it seems at a first look. Feel free to ask if you can't figure out something related to the code.

Do you find it complicated? Because it's not too much...
