HELP: !Toggle (or !Activate Config) another skin (i.e. QUOTE skins) based on TIME (without using mouse action).

HELP: !Toggle (or !Activate Config) another skin automatically based on TIME (without using mouse action)

Main goal:
SEQUENCE QUOTE: I want to create a skin that will display specific quote (in sequence) every hour (or 30 minutes, or 15 minutes, etc). But more importantly, I also want an animation to play when the quote appears. (Maybe even a small sound file).
RANDOM QUOTE: How do I attach a toggle/activate config (animation.ini) command to skin that uses the 'quote plugin' to display random quotes? Am I suppose to somehow attach !toggle/activate to the updatedivider portion of the skin somehow?


General question:
(1) How do I get a skin to !Toggle or !Activate Config another skin without ever using mouse actions?
(2) What is more CPU demanding, !Toggle/!Activate Config OR !ShowMeter / !HideMeter?

Specific Concerns:
(1) Is it possible to modify ('skin that works') so a new quote displays at the top of the hour (or 30 minutes, etc)?
(2) Why does updatedivider=360 (in 'skin that works') equal to 60 minutes when normally updatedivider=3600 should equal to 60 minutes intervals?

My working modified skin ("Skin that works") of Jsmorley's sequential quote ( https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?t=14465 ) . However, the quote refreshes based on when it initially loads (1:10 pm, 2:45 pm, etc) rather than based on actual time such top of the hour (1:00 pm, 2:00 pm, etc) or every half hour (1:30 pm, 2:30 pm, etc). The mathematical formula is also why I can use this skin to trigger animation to play when the quote refreshes. I have updatedivider=3 just for testing purposes. I tried fiddling with skin using quote plugins but I can't/don't know (what commands) to trigger the animatiions.

Unusual, UpdateDivider = 360 will display a new quote roughly every 60 minutes.
Unusual, UpdateDivider = 180 will display a new quote roughly every 30 minutes.

Normally, from what I've read, all skins with Updatedivider = 3600 is usually what sets the measure/meter to update every hour. In other words, somethings different with the skin to cause the updatedivider number to deviate from the norm. What numbers do I have to fiddle with to fix that?


Skin that 'works' - animation plays when new quote displays.

My youtube video demonstrating it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0ADpmT6in8&feature=youtu.be&ab_channel=strawberryyogurt0

Updatedivder=3 just for demonstration purposes. I would normally set it to either every 30 minutes or 60 minutes for a new quote.

This next skin has a feature that allows me to display quote on the hour, but I don't know how to have it toggle/activate config my animation files on the hour or every 30 minutes. So this would be another method to display quotes, but unfortunately with this skin, I don't know how to trigger animations.

Fascinate Skin:
https://www.deviantart.com/nasirivand/art/Fascinate-1-0-771020159

The "Fascinate" skin contains the "Greet" skin. I can use this to create hourly specific quotes, but I don't know how to add animation to it. I already changed the default greeting ("Good morning" " Good afternoon" "Good night" to quotes in the code, but don't know how to attach my animation file to to code.

Hi strawberryshortcake

Your question is very comprehensive to me, so I can't answer them. But for one question;
(2) Why does updatedivider=360 (in 'skin that works') equal to 60 minutes when normally updatedivider=3600 should equal to 60 minutes intervals?
It seems to be natural because of the logic you are using, I think.
It increments [MeasureUpdate] value by 1 at every update cycle, and if it becomes 10 after 10 update cycles (= 3600 sec. / 60 min. when UpdateDivider=360) then it is reset to 1 (and triggers the toggle action). See the following Excel sheet for them.

Maybe I am wrong... if so, sorry.

There is the Quote Plugin: https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/plugins/quote/

With an example of using a txt file to store your quotes in.

Did this appear to you or no?

You can use a Calc Measure to compare TimeStamp values with "<" ">" "="...
Can't fix it if it ain't broke - unless it is in code.

You may try something like this:

Code: Select all

[Time]
Measure=Time

[Counter]
Measure=Calc
Formula=([Time:]%3600)
IfCondition=(#CURRENTSECTION#=0)
IfTrueAction=[!CommandMeasure "SomeMeasure" "Update"]
DynamicVariables=1

[SomeMeasure]
Measure=...
...
...
UpdateDivider=-1
This way when the "Counter" measure reach 0, the "SomeMeasure" will update. Having "[Time:]%3600" means update at the hour, you may change it as you wish (i.e. 1800 every 30 min or 600 every 10min and so on...).
This allow you to update the measure following the clock exactly, so no matter what time you load the skin, it will update at 1am, 2am and so on...

I think displaying a quote at a specific time interval is not going to be an issue, but some details about what kind of animation you intend to use (and why would you need a different skin for it) would be useful.

Late to party... as usual :lol:

Hi strawberryshortcake! (one of my favorite desserts BTW :) )

The suggestions above should help you get this working, but I believe you might be combining IfAbove test with IfCondition actions and that is why the suggestions are not working for you.

Here is your code with a few modifications that will use a Time measure to control the quote display, so they change at the precise time, and a Calc measure based on the skin Update to control the animation display. I changed a few settings in the quote display meter to center the quote on the screen and wrap longer phrases.

I added variables that can be set to the number of seconds for quotes and animation control. I added an OnRefreshAction to setup the first display and an OnCloseAction to make sure the animation skin(s) are closed when the quote skin is deactivated. If you use more than 1 animation, you should add !DeactivateConfig for each to the OnCloseAction.

Hope this helps. :Whistle
