bang to change meter

Post by bendenfield »

Creating buttons and things with "hover"-effects would be much easier with a !bang.

for example:
MouseOverAction=!execute [!RainmeterChangeMeter "StringStyle BOLD"]

and for multiple changes:
MouseOverAction=!execute [!RainmeterChangeMeter "StringStyle BOLD" "FontColor 255,255,0"]

The idea is very simple, but the actual realisation wouldn't be that easy i assume.
what do you think? is it possible to realize?

To expand on this concept.

It could also allow for color change.
LeftMouseDownAction=!execute ["fontColor.Text=255, 255, 255, 160"]

This would require a refresh: Yes
and that the Variables can be written to.

The easiest way to do this is to use !RainmeterSetVariable and use variables in your meters and measures. You need to have DynamicVariables on though.

Code: Select all

[Meterstring]
Meter=STRING
FontColor=#colorvar#
FontFace=Trebuchet MS
FontSize=#var#
LeftMouseDownAction=!RainmeterSetVariable var 50
RightMouseDownAction=!RainmeterSetVariable colorvar 255,255,255,255
DynamicVariables=1
