Nested Variables in Tooltips

past105 » August 6th, 2019, 6:30 am

Is it possible that nested variables are not working with TooltipText? In Meter Text i can use Nested Variables without problems, but in TooltipText i can only use "normal variables". When I use a nested variables, the text will not be displayed.

Could you please post an example? I tried it and for my test-case it works; but who knows.

A small test-skin would be great.

my example:
Screenshot RM.png

Code: Select all

[Rainmeter]
Update=1000
AccurateText=1
DynamicWindowSize=1


[Variables]
DEBUG_VAR_1=TEST
DEBUG_VAR_2=DEBUG_VAR_
DEBUG_VAR_3=1

[Measure_Seconds_TEST]
Measure=TIME
Format=%S

[Meter_Seconds]
Meter=STRING
Text="This is a test#CRLF#[#DEBUG_VAR_[#DEBUG_VAR_3]]"
x=0
y=0
FontSize=40
AntiAlias=1
DynamicVariables=1
SolidColor=FFFFFFFF
Padding=10,10,10,10
TooltipType=1
TooltipIcon=INFO
TooltipTitle=That's the title
TooltipText=[&Measure_Seconds_[#DEBUG_VAR_1]]#CRLF#[#DEBUG_VAR_[#DEBUG_VAR_3]]

You're right it works.
There was an empty line in my *.inc file.
