I've made my own little modified version of the HW plugin, but am having an issue with getting the Bar Meter to work with my AIO since the "Number" it returns and the "String" are two very different things.

I need it to read the RPM in order to correspond to the value range I assigned it, but it seems to just read the first number...., please see below.

Any assistance would be welcome!
Don't use the "pretty" measures to get numeric values. These return text like "2,345 RPM", so use them only for showing formatted output. Instead, use measures that get the "raw" values from the "ValueRawN" registry keys, like the [MeasureGPUTempValueRaw] measure does. These return plain numbers, which you can use as input to the bar meters and other meters that require numeric input.

I will remember this for next time! The next solution was "cleaner" for my level of understanding. Thank you!

"MeasureName=MeasureGPUFanValueRaw" made it do exactly as needed. Thank you for the input and pointing me in the right direction, and the response was so fast!

Ah, thank you very much - that is just the information I was after :D.

I'd recently had my drive c die and rebuilding my PC caused strange issues with Aida 64 where a lot of my sensors were missing :(.

I switched over to HWinfo but was getting issues with the spaces and postfix letters / symbols being added to the numerical data I need. The main issue being the spaces after any numeric values, then whatever else afterwards as it messes up a lot of my skins.

I tried adjusting the HWinfo customisation tab but couldn't seem to be able to remove the postfix characters entirely, which led me here :). I can't believe I didn't think to use the registry Raw values before - like you mentioned - thanks very much again! :D

Hey, is there a way to only Measure the Units value instead of all together?

For example:

ValueRaw= 85
Value= 85°C
Units= °C

Or, just change the size of the units on the meter side?

Example code:

Code: Select all

;Measure
[Sensor]
Measure=Registry
RegHKey=HKEY_CURRENT_USER
RegKey=SOFTWARE\HWINFO64\VSB
RegValue=ValueRaw6

;Meter
[ValueText]
Meter=String
MeasureName=Sensor
MeterStyle=TextStyle
x=0
y=0
Text=%1

[ValueUnitsText]
Meter=String
MeasureName=Sensor
MeterStyle=TextStyle
x=0
y=0
Text=%(Insert some magic to show only sensor's units)
That will display the temperature as 85, and I want another meter that only displays °C so I can give them different TextStyles and positions.
I need it to be a measure, since I need the units to change, so those measures can be used not only for temperature but for any kind of sensor. MHz RPM % W, etc.

I was trying with substitute but it looks like I would have to enter all numbers from 0 to an infinite lol

Edit:

Finally got it with substitute

Now it is:

Code: Select all

[SensorValue]
Measure=Registry
RegHKey=HKEY_CURRENT_USER
RegKey=SOFTWARE\HWINFO64\VSB
RegValue=ValueRaw6

[SensorUnit]
Measure=Registry
RegHKey=HKEY_CURRENT_USER
RegKey=SOFTWARE\HWINFO64\VSB
RegValue=Value6
RegExpSubstitute=1
Substitute="(\d)":""


[ValueText]
Meter=String
MeasureName=SensorValue
MeterStyle=TextStyle
StringAlign=Left
x=0
y=0
Text=%1
FontSize=75


[UnitText]
Meter=String
MeasureName=SensorUnit
MeterStyle=TextStyle
StringAlign=Left
x=105
y=10
Text=%1
FontSize=20
I don't like having 2 measures measuring the same sensor tho.

Would that work?

Code: Select all

[SensorUnit]
Measure=Registry
RegHKey=HKEY_CURRENT_USER
RegKey=SOFTWARE\HWINFO64\VSB
RegValue=Value6

[ValueText]
Meter=String
Text="[SensorUnit]"
RegExpSubstitute=1
Substitute="[^0-9.]":""
MeterStyle=TextStyle

[UnitTex]
Meter=String
Text="[SensorUnit]"
RegExpSubstitute=1
Substitute="(?:\d)":""
MeterStyle=TextStyle

Noup, using it like that it only returns 0.

Sorry. I meant this:

Code: Select all

[SensorValue]
Measure=Registry
RegHKey=HKEY_CURRENT_USER
RegKey=SOFTWARE\HWINFO64\VSB
RegValue=Value6
RegExpSubstitute=1
Substitute="(?:\d)":""

[Value]
Meter=String
Text="[SensorValue:]"
MeterStyle=TextStyle

[Unit]
Meter=String
MeasureName=SensorValue
Text="%1"
MeterStyle=TextStyle

That way Value returns 0 but Unit returns the unit correctly.
