My first skin...

Post by sl23 »

First of all, a MASSIVE THANKS to MrSadistic for his help, he wrote the code for the BatteryMeter color change. :welcome: :thumbup: I take no credit for this skin as it's all been a matter of copy and paste with a bit of tidying here and there.

I wanted something small to fit on the Taskbar. Originally I just had basic illustro CPU and RAM as I needed to keep an eye on them when making music. But, I expanded it to include some other stuff gradually. First I added Net usage then Time/Date then Battery and finally a Launcher.

I originally wanted the launcher to stay in the Taskbar and although this works it looks pretty crap due to the small icon size at 12x12 pixels each! As I learnt a little more I found out new things I could do and so changed the original design dramatically.

I first edited a graphic from illustro for the background and then found out I could create my own without additional graphics. I also edited a RocketDock skin for the Launcher but, again decided to do without.

You need to set this skins position to Stay Topmost to place on the Taskbar. You'll also have to supply your own icons for the launcher, though the buttons still work, you'll probably want your own shorcuts anyway, so I didn't see much point supplying mine. There are some good ones on RocketDock and many other sites have good icons that I got simply googling.

Due to the variations in the icons designs you may need to do minor position and size adjustments too just so they appear the same size and in a line. Maybe Rainmeter can do this automatically with a bit of code? I don't know.

The Paths will obviously need adjusting too for your shortcuts and also the ACImage. The icon for ACImage is available here.

Here's the System - Micro Launcher:

; Lines starting ; (semicolons)  do not affect the code and are here for information purposes only.
; METERS display images, text, bars, etc.
; MEASURES return some kind of value
; STYLES are used to "centralize" options
; VARIABLES can be used later on between two # characters (e.g. #MyVariable#).
; METADATA contains basic information of the skin.
; RAINMETER contains general settings that can be used to change how Rainmeter behaves.
; Position: r stands for relative. In this case, the Y position of meterValueCPU is 0 pixels below the Y value of the previous meter (i.e it's the same as in meterLabelCPU).
; [MeterValueRAM] Percentual=1 needs to be added here because measureRAM returns the amount of RAM used in bytes. Using Percentual=1 will convert that into a percentual value.
; [MeasureIP] Substitute works as follows: "A":"B" where A is a string to substitute and B is a string to substitute with. In this case, it substutes "" (i.e. empty) to N/A
; [meterIPvalue] %1 stands for the value of MeasureName (measureIP in this case).
; Using MeterStyle=styleLeftText will basically "copy" the contents of the [styleLeftText] section here during runtime.
; [MeterTime] %1 stands for the value of MeasureName (measureTime in this case).
; Control Panel Item Shortcut info - http://docs.rainmeter.net/tips/control-panel-applets
; [RAM] UpdateDivider sets the rate at which the value of the measure is updated. It is calculated as follows: UpdateDivider x Update. In this case, Update is set to 1000 milliseconds (in the [Rainmeter] section). 1000 x 20 = 20000 ms or 20 seconds.

Re: My first skin...

Post by Mr.Sadistic »

If I might make a suggestion....

people prefer a skin install package....

and that would then include your images....

They are easy to make.....

Open Rainmeters MANGER...and click...
Image2.jpg
the options in the wizard are fairly straight forward....

then upload the package {edit your post above, removing all that code}

Yes, it's good to create RMSKINS in this way, not just for sharing it with others, but to make personal backups of your own work.

Thanks for the info, I did know that already, but as I have no way to share files, I simply displayed the text.

Oh, and supplying the launcher icons would mean supplying only 8 icons! Which probably means that though some would be used, others wouldn't and therefore the d/l'ers would need to supply their own anyway.

I recommend a google drive, dropbox or ubuntu one account to share your files. It's good, also, because as you upload it catalogs multiple versions of your skin, so if you ever do something wrong you can easily go back to an older version. Then of course you can share your skin with anyone.
