[Feature Suggestion] UpdateMultiplier

Omardude » March 16th, 2010, 2:07 pm

Basically it would be the opposite of UpdateDivider:

Code: Select all

UpdateMultiplier
This value modifies the update rate of the measure. The global Update value (set in the [Rainmeter] section) is divided by this number to determine the update rate for the measure. For example, if the Update is set to 1000 and the UpdateMultiplier is 2, the measure is updated every 0.5 seconds. The default value is 1.
I realize that this might not be a huge priority, but in certain skins, particularly those with a high number of lines with code, this could very useful.
Example: A skin with several measures that have an update rate of 1000, and one measure with an update rate of 500. With an UpdateMultiplier you would only have to add that to the one measure, instead of an UpdateDivider for every other measure.

What do you think?

Hate to awaken a thread that's almost 10 years old, but I'd make use of this feature, even if it's just for convenience.

Just use a low update rate with a high DefaultUpdateDivider, then use UpdateDivider = 1 on the measures that need to run faster.
