Scrolling too fast

QwopJoans » April 4th, 2016, 10:02 pm

So in my RainExplorer skin I just switched from using both FileView and FolderInfo to just using FileView. Before I FolderInfo was only used to count the files and folders in a given directory, and then I would combine that count as mTotalCount. Now I've figured out how to use FileView to do the same thing, but when you scroll using the scrollwheel there's a slight lag to it that causes the scrollbar to become unsynced and thus not display all the items in the directory. Any advice to kind of speed up the scrolling action to make it not lag? My working theory is that with every IndexUp or IndexDown, mPath is changing and thus mFileCount and mFolderCount are being recounted thus causing the slight lag that wasn't there with FolderInfo.

Code: Select all

I'm trying to figure out how to add a scrollbar into my meter. Is there a way to add this? I'm new to Rainmeter and all the codes so not sure how it works.

Add [!Redraw] to your mwheelup/downs
