Change Variable dynamically with if function

Post by Tezz95 »

Hi, I am new to Rainmeter. I am making a skin for my personal use and I don't know how to deal with the following problem.
I have three variables, first one is named 'size', which changes dynamically by scrolling the mouse. I want to change the second (name: W) and third (name: Gap) variables with an if condition depending on the first variable. Changes should be done by following values:
Image
Asper the image If 'size' is 5.5, 'W' should be 6 and 'Gap' should be 5 and if 'size' is 2, 'W' should be 2 and 'Gap' should be 2.
Please help with how to change the second and third variables if the first one changes.
Thanks in advance.

You might want to read the manual. To answer your questions, you'll want to read about IfConditions and the !SetVariable bang.

You'll need to use these in conjunction with some measure that will react to whatever you are doing. The IfCondition docs have an example that uses !SetOption bangs, so you would do something similar using !SetVariable bangs instead.

There is a small inconsistency in the provided data. What should you get for both functions, when size=1? Because both functions are shown should be 2 when size is 1 on the 10th column, but should be 1 on the 12th column. Plase let us (me) know what value should the function return for size=1, because it matters a lot.

Please check the new image.

Asper the image If 'size' is 5.5, 'W' should be 6 and 'Gap' should be 5 and if 'size' is 2, 'W' should be 2 and 'Gap' should be 2. Accordingly when size=1 'W' and 'Gap' both should be 1.

There is no need of conditions. This can be done easily using the Floor and Ceil functions. For instance:

Code: Select all

[Variables]
size=1

[MeasureW]
Measure=Calc
Formula=( Ceil ( #size# ))

[MeasureGap]
Measure=Calc
Formula=( Floor ( #size# ))

Thank you. The code working perfectly. Learnt new things. Didn't know about these functions. :great:
