So it looks like even with the code provided and trying with both hardware acceleration on/off, I seem to have issues with setting the update to 1000.

1000 Example: https://gfycat.com/angryrarealbertosaurus

50 Example: https://gfycat.com/wellmadeicygull
Ok, use it with Update=50 if it seems better this way. However this loads a little bit more the CPU than with Update=1000.

Also, I ended up taking out all [!Update] sections, and it seems to be running fine.
If the Update is set to 50 as described above, this is alright. However if the Update would be set to 1000, all MouseOverAction and MouseLeaveAction options of all meters from [Link1] up to [Link40] would require some updating and redrawing bangs:

Code: Select all

[LinkXX]
Meter=String
MeasureName=mNameXX
MeterStyle=StringStyle
LeftMouseUpAction=[!CommandMeasure mLink38 FollowPath]
MouseOverAction=[!SetOption #CURRENTSECTION# FontColor "#MouseOverColour#"][!UpdateMeter "#CURRENTSECTION#"][!Redraw]
MouseLeaveAction=[!SetOption #CURRENTSECTION# FontColor "#TextColor#"][!UpdateMeter "#CURRENTSECTION#"][!Redraw]
Note that additionally I also replaced the first parameter of the above !SetOption bangs with #CURRENTSECTION#, which makes them much easier to be copied / pasted and added some quotes around the color codes. Adding this quotes might be important: https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=26350&p=137607#p137628

I've tried to use the update at 1000 a few times with some of the redraws, but it still seems to be giving me issues with some of the text not appearing right away, so for now I'm sticking with 50 as it doesn't seem to be putting me higher than 3% CPU, and that's only when mousing over multiple texts rapidly.

I did, however, move the [!UpdateMeter "#CURRENTSECTION#"][!Redraw] section to the StyleString section, and that helped reduce a lot of the code for all the links.

I also added a timer to the skin to return to the original path after a set time. I had to include a workaround for the skin if it was already at the top level. I'm sure the code is a bit sloppy, but getting it to work was pretty fun.

Probably it doesn't load the CPU too much, however I still think the default Update=1000 is a better option. To make it to work more quicker, you have to update some measures and meters. Here is what you can do.
First replace the Update=50 with Update=1000. I'm sorry I still insist on this, but for the skins controlled by mouse, there is no reason to have such a low Update.
Add a Group=Items option to the [StringStyle] section (take care it is [StringStyle], not [StyleString]).
Finally add the [!UpdateMeasure "MeasureFolder"][!UpdateMeasure "m#CURRENTSECTION#"][!UpdateMeterGroup "Items"][!Redraw] bangs to the end of LeftMouseUpAction options of all meters from [Link1] to [Link40]. For instance the LeftMouseUpAction option of [Link1] will become:

Code: Select all

[Link1]
...
LeftMouseUpAction=[!CommandMeasure mLink1 FollowPath][!UpdateMeasure "MeasureFolder"][!UpdateMeasure "m#CURRENTSECTION#"][!UpdateMeterGroup "Items"][!Redraw]
Does it work quicker now?

No need for the [Reset2] measure. Generally speaking, the less measures, the better it is. So you can completely renounce to this useless measure and check the value of the #TopCheck# variable directly into the IfCondition options of [ResetTimer] measure. Also note that I'd add a Limit (or whatever) variable to the [Variables] section, which is the time limit after that the skin resets and would use this into the measure. The advantage is that changing the limit is much easier if anytime later you want to change it:

Code: Select all

[Variables]
...
Limit=20

...

[ResetTimer]
Measure=Calc
Formula=(ResetTimer+1)*#Reset#
MaxValue=155
IfCondition=(ResetTimer >= #Limit#) && (#TopCheck# = 1)
IfTrueAction=[!SetVariable Reset 0]
IfCondition2=(ResetTimer >= #Limit#) && (#TopCheck# = 0)
IfTrueAction2=[!CommandMeasure mLink1 FollowPath][!SetVariable Reset 0]
DynamicVariables=1

I added the Group=Items to the [StringStyle] and tried to add the [!UpdateMeasure "MeasureFolder"][!UpdateMeasure "m#CURRENTSECTION#"][!UpdateMeterGroup "Items"][!Redraw] to the LeftMouseUpActions, but same result, some of the text was delayed at random.

I did add LeftMouseUpAction=[!CommandMeasure "m#CURRENTSECTION# FollowPath][!UpdateMeasure "MeasureFolder"][!UpdateMeasure "m#CURRENTSECTION#"][!Redraw] to the [StringStyle], which let me remove more from the Links below, which is nice.

I have also removed unneeded measure, not sure how I missed the obvious redundancy here.

Other than the Update not being 100% 'clean', I'm not sure I have other updates I plan on making for this. I wanted something kinda lightweight and snappy, and this seems to satisfy that need.

I added the Group=Items to the [StringStyle] and tried to add the [!UpdateMeasure "MeasureFolder"][!UpdateMeasure "m#CURRENTSECTION#"][!UpdateMeterGroup "Items"][!Redraw] to the LeftMouseUpActions, but same result, some of the text was delayed at random.

I did add LeftMouseUpAction=[!CommandMeasure "m#CURRENTSECTION# FollowPath][!UpdateMeasure "MeasureFolder"][!UpdateMeasure "m#CURRENTSECTION#"][!Redraw] to the [StringStyle], which let me remove more from the Links below, which is nice.
A [!UpdateMeterGroup "Items"] bangs is missing from the LeftMouseUpAction option added to the [StringStyle] section. So, take care not to miss any bang, because if you do, I'm not surprised on the delay. The [StringStyle] now look this way for me:

Code: Select all

[StringStyle]
X=#LeftMargin#
Y=(#Spacing#+#TextSize#)r
Text=%1
FontColor=#TextColor#
FontSize=12
FontFace=ModeSeven
AntiAlias=1
MouseOverAction=[!SetOption #CURRENTSECTION# FontColor #MouseOverColour#][!UpdateMeter "#CURRENTSECTION#"][!Redraw]
MouseLeaveAction=[!SetOption #CURRENTSECTION# FontColor #TextColor#][!UpdateMeter "#CURRENTSECTION#"][!Redraw]
LeftMouseUpAction=[!CommandMeasure "m#CURRENTSECTION#" "FollowPath"][!UpdateMeasure "MeasureFolder"][!UpdateMeasure "m#CURRENTSECTION#"][!UpdateMeterGroup "Items"][!Redraw]

Other than the Update not being 100% 'clean', I'm not sure I have other updates I plan on making for this. I wanted something kinda lightweight and snappy, and this seems to satisfy that need.
It does work quickly enough for me:

Re: Fileview - Setting the topmost folder

Post by hyprdmg »

I realized my rainmeter was a bit old (4.3 instead of 4.4) so I updated to see if that would help, and I tried using the code you provided and the problem still exists with the update set to 1000.

Although using the latest version is always a good idea, this probably doesn't have any influence on the speed. But in this case, use it with Update=50. I'm surprised it is still slow, but use the low Update version in order to get it working well. Usually this has no great impact on the computer. :thumbup:

Thank you for all the help with the code, and the cleanup!

Works a lot better than when I started!
