Launchy on Rainmeter Action

iosman123 » July 10th, 2019, 2:45 pm

Hello,

I've got a relatively simple gnometer skin going, just a simple bar at the top with the few meters I feel I really need. The one thing I'm missing is being able to call up that information to the topmost position by keyboard shortcut, like you can with launchy.

Is there anyway to assign a shortcut like Launcy's standard ALT+SPACE that would call up your rainmeter skin? And would that interfere with calling on the launchy program? I imagine it'd be useful for just about any configuration of rainmeter that doesn't take up too much monitor space.

I've done a few searches of the forums and got squat, so, my question is, has this been developed yet?

thanks
iosman

Yes, HotKey plugin might do this, however there is a small issue: if the skin is loaded, it will react with each press of the key we're talking about. There are some more or less weird solutions of this problem too, but not something really simple.
First please post a code of what you have and what would you like to achieve.
