4.5.1.3538 is now available in the first post of this thread.

- Fixed a mouse detection issue with ToolTip inside a Container meter.

SysInfo Measure:

- Fixed an inconsistency with how an empty string value is returned for SysInfoType=IP_ADDRESS.

- Added the following SysInfoType values:
ADAPTER_ALIAS
ADAPTER_GUID
ADAPTER_TRANSMIT_SPEED
ADAPTER_RECEIVE_SPEED

We are likely to "release" the 4.5.1 version today or tomorrow, and will start a new thread for 4.5.2.

I tried all these new and revised SysInfo measures and everything appears to be working.

The only item I noticed is that SysInfoType=GATEWAY_ADDRESS_V6 is acting like the IP_ADDRESS issue, where it is returning "0" as the string value of the measure when there is no IPv6 gateway. Since this is new and has no backward compatibility concerns, I guess this behavior is OK unless you want consistency with the other similar options.

And lastly, and want to give a huge THANK YOU :rosegift: to the devs for these latest enhancements. I requested most of these recent enhancements waaaay back in 2015, and ended up writing my own plugin to be able to figure out the "Best" adapter (later added to Rainmeter 3.3) and also return all the juicy adapter info that is now built into SysInfo. Now all my plugin nonsense can be tossed out, which is a huge bonus (for me anyway, LOL). I got lots more suggestions for SysInfo, but perhaps I'll wait for 2027...

On these measures, I am getting the same values for every adapter. In addition, I have to use DynamicVariables on these measures even if I am not using "Best". For example:

Code: Select all

[Variables]
InterfaceEthernet="...your ethernet adapter..."
InterfaceWireless="...your wireless adapter..."

[MeasureEthernetInterfaceSpeed]
Measure=SysInfo
SysInfoType=ADAPTER_RECEIVE_SPEED
Name=#InterfaceEthernet#
DynamicVariables=1

[MeasureWirelessInterfaceSpeed]
Measure=SysInfo
SysInfoType=ADAPTER_RECEIVE_SPEED
Name=#InterfaceWireless#
DynamicVariables=1
If I plug and unplug my ethernet cable, both these measures always return the same result (i.e., my wireless adapter will show 1Gbps even though it can't do this like my ethernet one can). Removing DynamicVariables=1 will result in the measures returning unchanging values, even if the active network adapter changes.

What is "Name"? I don't believe that is a SysInfo option.

OMG, my apologies; that is supposed to be "SysInfoData", not "Name". And of course it now works. (I'm converting my personal plugin measures to SysInfo and I made a typo.) Please feel free to delete these posts!

We will leave them as a warning to the others... Like the heads on the spikes. ;-)

Something seems to be glitched with the ModenGadgets Disks Meter. I get an instant crash when this skin is loaded. All others are working fine. My Gadgets Drives Meter skin is similar and it is working fine (4.5.1 changed nothing in this skin, but I can't say the same for ModernGadgets).
