That's look so promissing !

Yes, you're definitively on the way ! And because of you, I start to understand the used code (i'm usualy an user and not a creator of content)

Thanks for this, i'll try to do something with this and stay tuned about your improvement

Hi Maebure
"especialy when your vocabulary is poor"... you mean my vocabulary is poor? Exactly, you are right. :D
No, he definitely talked about his own vocabulary, because:

The beauty of rainmeter coding is that you can create in french or english, or both. the flexibility is enormous.

The structure is also flexible but there are monikers that tend to lend beneficial usability and sharing a hand in communication via code.

Language barriers are so fun. Also google translate is a good friend.

This thread reminds me of when I first found rainmeter.

I initially was trying to do these things with C++ and it was really difficult to get started. Rainmeter lends a great opportunity for the so inclined to create and achieve a modern goal via script/code.

Ok, I'm glad if you think my code is good for your needs (supposing above you are talking about my code).
But before we continue, there are a few questions we have to clarify:
  • How many categories do you want? Now there are two: Programs and Websites. How many do you need and how we'll name those?
  • How many elements do you need in each of them? And again, how we'll name those elements?
  • If beside the names of those elements you need / want icons as well, I'll need those icons as well. In such a case please upload a package containing the desired icons.

I'm sorry, I am busy those times, I did't get time to come here.

I really can't say how much categories I want. Could it be flexible on this point? Create categories at any time? If not, I can see at least 3 : games, work, other programms, websites.

Same for elements. At least five or a little more.

For icons, there is a folder (from spectrumV3). It could be possible to add some icons at any time and "call them" with fils path or name? I see this in spectrum code (https://www.deviantart.com/birdalliance/art/SPECTRUM-Launcher-v3-for-Rainmeter-762183493)

See you as soon as possible :thumbup: :welcome:

Actually not really. Rainmeter not being a programming language it is extremely hard (however probably not impossible) to dynamically change the number of menu elements.

Here are four, in fact.
