Changing text displayed via MouseOverAction

Post by OrionsHope »

I'm modifying the launcher in the mass effect skin here; https://www.visualskins.com/skin/mass-effect. notice that on mouse over, the text disappears. after much trial and error (I'm new at this), i got the behavior demonstrated on the upper left button using the code below. there are actually three separate buttons on that tab (C_Drive) and as you run the mouse over each of them, notice how the text changes to reflect what the button is marked with as well as which part is highlighted. my question to you is, how do i replicate that behavior accurately on the other tabs? i've got the color changes functioning the way i want but i can't get the text to show up. is it a nesting issue, or maybe poor syntax? never mind the mess, like i said, I've tried a lot of stuff. once i know what to do, i can clean up the code after the fact. my suspicion is that what is going on has to do with his use of the NameButton#Over bang but i don't know where to go from here.

Code: Select all

Reason: Use the code tag in the message field for the code parts. It is the [</>] looking button

Re: Changing text displayed via MouseOverAction

I simply use two string meters and hide one while showing the other on mouse over.

Or, you can use !SetOption bang in a mouse over action to change the text.

TIP: when posting long sections of code, use the buttons above the text field for spoiler and code to hide the massively long post. :D

Honestly I did think about that when I did it but I'm ignorant enough to not know what was important and I didn't want to forget something you'd need. I'll remember that in the future though, thank you. I don't suppose you'd be willing to show some sample code? Please?

Seriously though, there has to be a way to reset the focus on these things. I realize I left some pertinent information out so here you go. As it stands, if I enable a NameButton to show while mousing over one of the '"a" tabs on the side (not the corners...although I haven't actually tried that), IF the display shows at all (I suspect it's hidden by another object), it shows up near the top left tab name (C_Drive), not its own tab. FWIW, I didn't create all those NameButtons from scratch, I copied and pasted from the Left2Over NameButton. Is there some sort of metadata I accidentally copied that resets the focus? If so, how do I edit that? Let's be frank here, I am new to rainmeter and coding INI's but I speak pretty decent Geek so your answers may contain technical names, info, etc. and I'll get it...probably :Whistle What I don't understand, I'm not afraid to investigate, which is how I ended up here, actually. If knowing you don't have a complete noob speeds things up then there you go.

It would be easier to help if you posted the entire skin. Without being able to reproduce the issue you are describing, there's not much anyone can do but make wild guesses. To create a skin package, open the Rainmeter Manage dialog, and click the "Create .rmskin package" button.

Here you go. I do think I have a solution (using your advice above) and will post it when/if it works. In the meantime, please continue to share if you think of something else and thanks for all your help so far. BTW, how do I replicate putting pasted text into that cool little box the moderator put it in?

Code: Select all

It's the Code "</>" button...
