Keep on Screen

DavidFw1960 » April 10th, 2019, 4:33 am

I am having an issue where a skin keeps jumping up about 10 pixels from the bottom of the screen.

If I turn off 'keep on screen' it doesn't do that. But I don't understand why I need to do that to stop this happening?

The skin DOES have a dynamic size. Depending on a value it reads from a webparser, the height can be either 95 or 105 pixels. If it's 105 pixels it sits correctly where I want it. (It tests a value from the web parser and then decides if it will be 95 or 105 pixels high) Is Rainmeter actually 'seeing' that the skin might be a max of 105 and using that to determine the position?

It's no biggie but just confuses me. I am using a shape meter - that is what the height of 95 or 105 is in my example above.

No, it doesn't but probably the code set for a very short time (probably only one cycle) the largest height, even if continuously it's set to 95. This short height variation is completely enough to make the skin to jump one.
For further help, please post the involved code.
