Re: Sliding a Skin with ActionTimer

Post by DanielPodo »

Right...any guesses as to why I can't change the Height of this bar dynamically using all the above code (specific code for this meter in particular shown below)?

I've made it so that Width and Height can both expand but the Height isn't changing...whereas the Width is...what gives? All the math checks out...I've got a small skin showing me all the variable values changing in real-time to help me debug issues...is this some limitation in Rainmeter?

Code: Select all

[Variables]
Z=[!UpdateMeasure ExtendClose][!Update][!Redraw]
N=0
State=1
Ext=0

[Bar]
meter=Image
X=20
Y=700
W=(20+#Ext#)
H=(20+#Ext#)
SolidColor=255,156,32
LeftMouseUpAction=[!CommandMeasure "ExtendClose" "Execute #State#"][!SetVariable "State" "(3-#State#)"]
DynamicVariables=1

[ExtendClose]
measure=Plugin
Plugin=ActionTimer
ActionList1=Repeat Extend, 10, 20
ActionList2=Repeat Close, 10, 20
Extend=[!SetVariable N "(Clamp((#N#+1),0,20))"][!SetVariable Ext "(trunc(300*(1-1/(128**(0.05*#N#)))))"]#Z#
Close=[!SetVariable N "(Clamp((#N#-1),0,20))"][!SetVariable Ext "(trunc(#Ext#*(1-1/(128**(0.05*#N#)))))"]#Z#

Adding DynamicWindowSize=1 to [Rainmeter] section... works here!

Yep, adding that makes it work for me too. But why do I need to add that?

Without that in the [Rainmeter] section, the window size for meters is set on load/refresh, but not adjusted on updates.

With that added, the skin adjusts to any changes in meter sizes on every skin update. Manual Reference

Hi guys I have not been here in awhile sorry :(...
Just getting into the sliders ... and got them to work good on my new skin ... but on the sort of label tab can I use a png or does it just have to be text?

sorry I know you can use .pngs .. just found out sorry

but my png has curved edges and the background colour shows through :( ... can it be fixed ?

Thanks in advance

hope I did this correctly :)
And the DynamicVariables=1 was in the background meter but not on the others & yes I added DynamicVariables=1 to all the meters and still didn't work :(

Re: Sliding a Skin with ActionTimer

Post by Honimoura »

Hello, I just discovered this option. I use it a little differently. I use it to click on one of the skin, it "unwinds" icons to create a menu. However I am looking for how to make a slide of the skins on a arc path.

In order to be as clear as possible. The base skin is a circle, so I want to scroll the "icons" around this circle in sliding.

(Sorry, i'm french, google trad power)

As a starting point you can use the following demonstrating skin where blue circles rotate on a circle when hovering over the red base rectangle (and back when leaving the red base rectangle):

A little math:
the x-position of an object on a circle is calculated by.
[x-coordinate of the middle of the circle] + [radius of the circle] * COSINUS(angle)
the y-position of an object on a circle is calculated by.
[y-coordinate of the middle of the circle] + [radius of the circle] * SINUS(angle)

(see polar-coordinates on wikipedia (french): https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coordonn%C3%A9es_polaires)

sliding is done by increasing (or decreasing) the angle with an action-timer measure
