My Now Playing skin with switcher buttons

Post by FuzzyLizard530 »

I like a lot of the "Now Playing" skins, but didn't want to have to edit code just to switch between players, so I came up with this:

Code: Select all

Feel free to remix, and edit to your heart's content! All I ask is that you add a link to your version here! I may use it in place of what I've got here!

Sidenote: I do realize that it needs control buttons, but I'll get round to it soon!
I may or may not have a signature in this, very location...

NOW PLAYING w/BI-DIRECTIONAL MOUSE-SCROLL INTERFACE SELECTION

When mouse scrolling was added to Rainmeter, I wrote this code to scroll select any of the 10 available player interfaces... based on Kaelri's examples of swapping variables values using the !WriteKeyValue prior to refreshing the skin.

It is simply 1 meter that when scrolled over changes the variable used in the main nowplaying measure. (No buttons, No clicks, just Scrolling needed)

You should be able to add the variables and main player measure and player meter sections to almost any skin to achieve a list that can scroll select multiple interfaces.

Code: Select all

[Variables]
Player0=foobar2000
Player0interface=CAD
Player1=iTunes
Player1interface=iTunes
Player2=J.River
Player2interface=CAD
Player3=Jukebox
Player3interface=CAD
Player4=MediaMonkey
Player4interface=MediaMonkey
Player5=MusicBee
Player5interface=CAD
Player6=VLC
Player6interface=CAD
Player7=WinAmp
Player7interface=WinAmp
Player8=WMP
Player8interface=WMP
Player9=AIMP
Player9interface=AIMP
;foobar2000 Uses CAD... foo_cad plugin needed
;J.River Uses CAD... intcad plugin needed
;Jukebox Uses CAD... intcad plugin needed
;MusicBee Uses CAD... version 1.2 or higher
;VLC Uses CAD... libcad plugin needed

[mPlayer]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=NowPlaying.dll
PlayerName=#Player0interface#

DynamicVariables=1

[PlayerText]

H=16
W=70
StringAlign=Left

DynamicVariables=1
ToolTipText=Left-click to open Player#CRLF# Scroll to Select Player
Someone may have a better code to step through the 10 interfaces, but this has worked well for me... :)

EDIT: Removed 'PLAY...' command from the MouseScroll actions...

Re: My Now Playing skin with switcher buttons

Post by FuzzyLizard530 »

All that code makes my head and eyes hurt! LOL! Your idea is great, but it could cause me trouble when trying to use my touch pad (It doesn't always recognize 2-finger scrolling).

I did manage to get it to look how I wanted it to, though when asian characters appear, it bumps everything down a bit. Not sure if I'll fix that or not yet. I used the icons from http://dakirby309.deviantart.com/art/Metro-UI-Icon-Set-725-Icons-280724102.

Here's my code:
