!RainmeterSetVariable YPos (#YPos#+10)

is OK. So increment/decrement was already there as another easter egg.

I understand about WM_MouseWheel, when the idea came to me I was thinking about how in Opera you have the option to change tabs by scrolling on the tab bar, but Opera is a single window program and already has focus.

I had actually just changed stuff around to implement the Set Variable formula stuff but it was already there! Good thing you mentioned this.

To be able to use a formula in a !RainmeterSetVariable bang you have to use it like:

Code: Select all

!RainmeterSetVariable variable "([SomeMeasure] + #variable# + 10)"
You need parenthesis as far as I know and have quotation marks allows for spaces in the formula.

The mouse wheel scroll thingy would be exellent if there was...

because then you could have the roll of the mouse wheel move meters until an action is applied ie [!RainmeterHideMeter SomeMeter]

or is there allready away to moniter the X Y position of a meter.. Im not sure. please reply if you know.

That would be a niche application, but... this monitor can be done by having a calc measure trigger something when an incrementing variable X or Y position reaches a value. !RainmeterSetVariable in my testing works instantly (and on a side note, doesn't need DynamicVariables=1 to function) so no matter how fast you clicked that variable should increment reliably and then every update the measure would check if you passed its threshold.
