It seems it would be ok, but the initial load of the skin, will require a user triggered action, or is there an 'autopilot-startup'?
It's automated 😉

Ok, so I have things going pretty decently.
But the containers aren't coming out. The text scrolls, but the shapes are not there.
I am getting these errors on refresh:

Ok. Got rid of it.

Weirdly the ps1 is no longer writing to the inc file.

At one point I caused a wild loop, and when I ctrl-z then saved the loop stopped, and the config strings all came out good.
But ya, it isnt building anymore.

Hmm... How do you know the config strings all came out good if it isn't building anymore?

The target inc file did get 'built' one or twice. So the working meters were generated. Behavior has been weird, and not all together consistent.

So the target here:
$string | Out-File -FilePath "$($RmAPI.VariableStr('@'))Builder.inc" -Encoding utf8
was actually working, but for the life of me, now it doesnt.

I do not know what I changed, since when I refreshed the parsed list remained unchanged. but that alone should have rang a bell for me.

Also weird, I got a shape but it did not iterate for the whole list.

I am going t o try to revert and progress through the things I tried until builder.inc is correctly updating again. :handtohead:

May I see your current Script ? Along with the skin. Don't post a config, just the code :D

It isnt in working order. I cannot get it to go right lol.

Somehow I did it but changed enough stuff to lose the place where that was.

ps1:

Code: Select all

function Update {
    $RmAPI.Bang('[!EnableMeasure GetConfigName][!CommandMeasure GetConfigName Update]')
    MakeConfigs
    $RmAPI.Bang("[!DisableMeasure $($RmAPI.GetMeasureName())]")
}
function MakeConfigs {
    $activeConfigsRaw=$RmAPI.MeasureStr('GetConfigName')
    # split method is used to split a string by a given delimiter. 
    # Here I used '\|' since '|' is a regex reserved character. 
    $activeConfigs=$activeConfigsRaw -split '#crlf#'
    # now that I have an array of active configs, I can use them to make my meters.
    # in this function we would iterate through the values in $activeConfigs to make the meters. 
    # $_ is a automatic variable that is the current object in the iteration. 

   $string=''
   $i=0

       $string+=@"

Why don't you use substitute in RainmeterSettings itself?

And since you are not disabling it, you don't have to use enablemeasure.

In psrm, change the measure name to rainmetersettings and try again.

Tho I don't see why wouldn't it work as is.

Lemme check again

    # now that I have an array of active configs, I can use them to make my meters.
    # in this function we would iterate through the values in $activeConfigs to make the meters.
