yes it works great. i change the skin to another location. just like you have. i can unload the skin when it is not visable on the screen.

guess it has something to do with the delay, but i am not totaly sure.
i will keep up the post if i find something or not.

have a nice day
Ah, ok, all clear now. Yeah, I suppose somewhere along the lines Rainmeter isn't able to keep up with things happening that fast, or maybe it's delay related like you said. Too bad we can't replicate it on a consistent basis in order to fix it, but I'm glad the dot unload workaround is what you needed for now. ;-)

this is the skin code i have in tooltip.

Code: Select all

; This is the custom tooltip skin (i.e. the skin displaying the custom tooltips when hovering over a parent skin meter that has them enabled).
; Needed parts for custom tooltips to work (or the steps needed to build a custom tooltip skin like this one):
; - the MS (Mouse Cursor Size), PP (Populated Status), PX (Parent X), PY (Parent Y), PW (Parent Width), PH (Parent Height) variables
; - the [MeasureMoveTooltip], moves this skin to a location under the parent skin meter that triggered tooltips on hover (group: TooltipGroup)
; - the blank (i.e. not populated) [MeterTooltipIcon], [MeterTooltipTitle] and [MeterTooltipText] (group: TooltipGroup)

Yep, the code looks alright and the link as well. What I use is very slightly different (just a few variables more to control things) and in any case it doesn't prevent the strange situation and error we talked about anyway. When I wrote the code in that thread I tried to make things easier for other users by not including every little "feature" that I use, so I kept it as simple as I could. ;-)
