Very good positioning, it even remids you of where the leds used to be (relatively). I try to avoid using "stay topmost" option, however, even I love the concept of a skin above the taskbar, because of it's persistence to stay topmost even in media player's full mode, or even screensaver. Now that we are talking about it, does your to-do list include a way to disable this? Perhaps by detecting a full screen (without taskbar) application?jsmorley wrote:
I guess one could put them down on the taskbar set to "stay topmost" so they don't fight the taskbar always wanting to be in front.

First the bad news. [...] We would be happy to have this happen and would love to work with anyone who is feeling ambitious.
Now the good news.
I lied, there isn't any good news...

In Windows is an Ease of Use/Accessibility option called StickyKeys. It provides the option to lock the toggle keys (Shift, Ctrl, Alt, Win) down until the next keystroke or until unlocked. Optionally, Windows puts a little icon in the ClockTray showing the Up or Down state of these keys. This latter feature is vitally important to users of alternate input and output methods (JAWS® screen reader, braille devices, handwriting recognition, NaturallySpeaking® speech recognition, et. al); how such tools function often changes depending upon the state of the toggle keys.jsmorley wrote: ↑February 6th, 2012, 12:11 am Dec 17, 2013: Updated my KeyState.dll Rainmeter plugin for some changes to the Rainmeter Plugin API.
This skin will demonstrate how to use the KeyState.dll plugin to display the state of the Caps/Num/Scroll keys. The appropriate 32bit / 64bit version of the plugin will be installed by the .rmskin.
KeyState Plugin Usage:
Simply create a plugin measure using KeyState.dll. The only setting is "KeyName=", which can be "Caps", "Num" or "Scroll". The measure will return either 0 (normal) or 1 (locked).
Code: Select all
[MeasureCAPS] Measure=Plugin Plugin=KeyState KeyName=CAPS
For those of us who depend on these tools, three things would be great additions to your creation.
- Add the other toggle keys.
- Add an indication (a red or gray circle around the indicator, mayhap) of each key's lock state.
- An "always on top" option that keeps KeyState on top of all windows.

I like yours as it would be better looking in the taskbar area. Do you have it posted for download or is it a personal item?
