Also it's more dynamic than ever.
I just tested it and it works as it should - good job! :great:
Out of curiosity, it stays on screen even if the main menu is extended, or just the submenus?

2. That's something cannot be done. If you leave the meter to use the submenu... poof. But it goes poof when you leave the submenu. And I don't want to show it on mouse over since I can't dismiss on mouse over. Also staying inside the workarea comes with a cost. :(

Nope, animation is not, but you can incorporate it if you want to. In the lua look for lines with: ContextOption'..i..'Background and do what you want to do there. P.S. the height of submenus are stored as SubcontextNHeight variable. You can use that for limits.
And I thought my native Rainmeter custom tooltips were a bit too complex - was trying to defend and emphasize the advantages of my approach with both jsmorley and balala at the time... :lol:
