ToDo:
1. Get the RoundLine Meter working.
2. Remove reliance on NirCmd.
3. Add Actions to close programs.
4. Possibly add MouseScroll actions to replace the + and - for setting the timer. Not sure though as I like the way it is currently hidden until you click the Set button.

Please don't think I'm expecting you to write the code for these todo's, it's just a list of things I'd like to get added. I would prefer to try myself, and when I get stuckI'd like some help if that's ok. I would definitely like some help with the Roundline meter though! I can't seem to get it to work! I've tried to use the MeasureName=mCounterTimer but it just stays green when the timer starts.

:thumbup: :great: :thumbup:

EDIT: One thing I'm curious about though, why is the skin set to Update=50? Is there a need for the high update rate?

Ok, done. Have added a MaxVal variable, which keeps track of the max value of the measure used into the MeasureName option of the [RoundBarFore] roundline meter. I changed this measure from the initial MeasureName=mCounterTimer to MeasureName=mTimer2. The code I posting below definitely is not the final code, it can and has to be improved, but see if the Roundline meter(s) is/are working as expected, because there might be some other approaches as well (for instance to increas the green roundline, instead of decreasing it, as it is now).

Note that I commented out the MouseOverAction and MouseLeaveAction options of the [Rainmeter] section, not to get error messages whenever are zou hovering the mouse over / leaving the skin.

Oh damn! I forgot about that max value setting! :oops:

Thanks for the help. I'll have a look later tonight :thumbup:

So you can use a variable to point to another variable? I thought that, but in my last times skin I couldn't get it to work... Strange!

Thanks for the help. I'll have a look later tonight :thumbup:
Ok, please let me know if it does work as expected.

Not sure what you mean by "variable to point to another variable", but I hope the code (and the Roundline meter) does work.

I meant this...

Code: Select all

[Variables]
DefaultInitialValue=6000
MaxVal=#DefaultInitialValue#

Oh, I see. Yes, it can be done, however one minor thing you have to take care about is the order of those variables. For instance this is working well:

Code: Select all

[Variables]
DefaultInitialValue=6000
MaxVal=#DefaultInitialValue#
But in the following code, the value of the MaxVal variable is set to #DefaultInitialValue#, not to 6000:

Code: Select all

[Variables]
MaxVal=#DefaultInitialValue#
DefaultInitialValue=6000

Aha! That would explain why it didn't work for me.
