Can't get !SetOption to work correctly

Hi

I'm new to RainMeter skins. To start, I tried to edit the following skin:

The part of interest is this one

Code: Select all

LeftMouseUpAction=[!WriteKeyValue Variables StatusBox8 "0" "#@#Var.ini"][!SetOption MeterCheckbox9 InlineSetting Strikethrough][!UpdateMeter MeterCheckbox9][!Redraw][!Refresh "#CURRENTCONFIG#"]
It's under [Metercheckbox8UnChecked]. I added the !SetOption in order to add the strikethrough to the text whenever the checkbox is unchecked. It doesn't work however. When I click the strikethrough it just flashes for a second.

Does anyone have any idea how to fix it? Thanks

The reason the change does not persist is that !SetOption is not a permanent change to the coded section, while !WriteKeyValue is a permanent change to coded sections. You change the option but then immediately refresh the config, which changes the option back to the original value.

To have it persist through refresh, use !WriteKeyValue:

Code: Select all

LeftMouseUpAction=[!WriteKeyValue Variables StatusBox8 "0" "#@#Var.ini"][!WriteKeyValue MeterCheckbox9 InlineSetting Strikethrough][!Refresh "#CURRENTCONFIG#"]
Since you are refreshing the config, you do not need to update the meter or redraw.

In addition to eclectic-tech's reply, I'd add that at a first look (I have to admit I didn't enter too deeply into the code though) there is no reason to write those variables physically (with !WriteKeyValue bang) and refresh the skin, would be a much better idea to set them dynamically (through !SetVariable bang), which avoid the need to refresh the skin. If is needed, along with setting those variables dynamically, you can also write them with !WriteKeyValue bangs, but in this case you don't have to refresh the skin. However if they are written, if for any reason you're refreshing the skin, the previously set new value of any of those variables is kept, being written to the [Variables] section.
Keep in mind that the refresh is a destructive operation and as much as possible it must be avoided. Obviously there are cases when it must be used, but not too many. I tend to not use it if there is any other possibility. A few details: https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=22739&p=120238&hilit=refresh+both+balala#p120238
