FYI, the !Execute bang prefix has been deprecated.

The code has some issues of popping up immediately on Mouseover. If I were to do such a thing, I would simply create two Configs, say C1.ini and C2.ini . Now C1 is nothing but a seemingly invisible thing on your screen, placed at the right edge(you may customize it to the edge of your choice) and when I hover my mouse over it, the C2 config, which has all the icons, gets launched. This saves you using a Lua to used fading and rather use Rainmeter's default Fade effect when launching a config.

Just hang on a bit while I express myself in a .rmskin .

EDIT : Yup its here. :) Use it as you may. Fell free to ask any questions.

The focus is to use a single .ini to optimize configuration and avoid messy management mistakes

The skin works with the same hotspots as the default Win8 CharmBar

I think you are pretty mistaken on that one. During the first months I had this notion too that its "organized" to keep all things in one ini . But as time went by I saw codes of suites like Enigma, Omnimo, JSMeter etc. I saw that keeping everything in one bank won't help. You create stylesheets, variable files, create different directories for images, addons and then its helpful because you can reuse your codes in two simultaneous configs without having to create two separate instances in both configs.

And I think every forum "Guru" here is gonna agree with me.

I didn't get this part. Are you trying to say that you want that charms bar to always show on your screen ??

Take his advice. I was in the same boat as you. When I made my first skin, I thought keeping everything in one .ini would be better and more helpful; it was the complete opposite. When it's spread out, you can reference it multiple files easily, edit files more easily, and in the end make it look more clean than it would have if it had been kept in one .ini.
