Yes, I thought to this, but from my point of view, it's hard to handle it, exactly for what you've described.
Thanks anyway.

It's not a huge deal so long as you don't mind limiting the aesthetics to square windows. As long as the skin width and height are fixed, like in my case, it's fine.

Hi there,

Thanks for making this, really looks great!

I'm just wondering how everyone is getting it to lock with a shortcut? Atm I have to manually load and unload the skin to lock the screen, which ruins it for me.

Thanks in advance if anyone can help!

Is it possible to apply blue to multiple layers?

Example, let's say I have a rainy transparent image, and then over that I have another, let's say "menu" set of images and string meters, but I want to blur out the transparent image while keeping everything else unblurred... is there a way to do that?

This is not possible with this plugin.

This plugin asks Windows to apply the blur to the entire skin window before Rainmeter draws anything to it. You cannot blur "on top" of what Rainmeter draws. You also cannot control the location of the blur (like you could with Windows 7).

Very nice addition theAzack9!

I did notice one small issue, if I add this measure to a skin, and then remove or comment out the entire FrostedGlass measure, the effect remains on a skin refresh... I have to unload/reload the skin to remove the blur effect even though the measure was removed from the code. :???:

Rather than remove or comment out the section, I can set Type=None and it removes the effect. So it is not really a problem, I just found it strange that the effect remained, even when completely removed from the code, and the skin refreshed. :uhuh:

Thanks for the added features; they look great! :thumbup:

EDIT: I forgot to mention the plugin updated when installed, but the PlugIn information still shows version 1.0.0.0
