Font Colors

TheProfessor » June 2nd, 2010, 10:57 pm

I read a thread a while ago about how to deal with color codes and changing colors that really helped me. But I still can't change the font or font color. For example, it will say FontColor=#ColorActive#, FontColor=#Color1#, or FontFace=#Font#. How do I change these?

Anything in ## refers to a variables section.

You'll see:
[Variables]
ColorActive=00FFFF
Color1=00FF00
Font=Times New Roman

then, in meters
[Meter1]
Meter=String
FontColor=#Color1#
FontFace=#Font#
MouseOverAction=!RainmeterSetVariable Color1 #ColorActive#
MouseLeaveAction=!RainmeterSetVariable Color1 00FF00
Text=This is a test

Therefore, FontColor is directed to Color1 and that's the color used. (I used hexadecimal. Alternatively (Actually, same thing just another way to write it) you can use any number 0-255 three times seperated by commas. A fourth number is transparency and is optional. The first number is Red, second Green and third is Blue, RGB color system thing.)
Anywho. You can change the variable, or delete anything in the ## and replace it with a number you'd like.

And in this particular case, those look like Enigma colors, and they are set with the EnigmaConfigure app which you can get to by "middle clicking" any skin in Enigma.

If I remember correct, you open EngimaConfigure by middle-clicking on the taskbars/sidebars.

Middle click on skins in Enigma cycles variants of the skin if there are any.

The tray measure is set to open EnigmaConfigure on double click if you use the current enigma theme.
