PopupDock

Post by tass_co »

Hi everyone,

I made a skin for myself. Because I am a lazy man. I dont want to use keyboard, start button etc. :D

I have a mouse with extra buttons.I created a hotkey and this hotkey when you press the button shows or hides that skin. Very useful for me ;-)

I want to share you because maybe you can make this skin very useful.

Description:
  • I used hotkey to "SHIFT CTRL ALT G".If you want to change you have to change this line in skin file
    [MeaShow]
    Measure=Plugin
    Plugin=Hotkey
    Hotkey=SHIFT CTRL ALT G
    KeyUpAction=[!Delay 10][!ToggleMeterGroup BtnP][!Move ([MeaMX]-154) ([MeaMY]-150)][[!Update *][!Redraw]
    DynamicVariables=1
  • Popup apps/app icons: You have to change manually. I am sorry that :(
  • PopupDock has a timer. I use for pc shutdown or hibernate. If you do mouse scroll up on "ZZZ icon" hibernate activated. Otherwise shutdown activated.
    You can do change to timer with mouse scroll or mouse click. Left click +, Right click -.
    Play button activates countdown. Stop button stops countdown. X button resets timer...
  • When you install you should change to skin position to "stay topmost"

Description:

* I couldnt create rmskin file. Because of plugins. I shared RAR file and you have to unrar to your skin directory.
* I used 2 plugins. Hotkey (https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?t=18849) + MouseXY (https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?t=22900)
* Popup apps/app icons: You have to change manually. I am sorry that :(

You can attach plugins by using add plugins in skin packer.

And also it's a good practice not to share it in an archive. People get suspicious you know.

Tho this skin is safe.

Nice work :thumbup:

Rainmeter saves 32 and 64 bit plugins when you install other skins. It saves them to the @Vault folder. It is located inside of the Skins folder.

Sometimes people share plugins with skins. If i dont like it skins, only i install 64bit plugins.
Because i use 64bit OS and i dont need 32bit dll files :phhht Problem has come from there

Thank you for info and good words :)

Actually, the skin installer installs plugins according to your architecture. So even if it packs both, it will install only 64 bit. But both versions will be stored in @Vault\Plugins for packaging skins you make. And it's doesn't take much of a storage. All your plugins wouldn't make 20mb all together.
