Roundline Tooltips and Mouse Actions.

Post by sl23 »

Is there any chance that this could be made easier to implement and that the Tooltips and Mouse Actions only respond to the drawn visible parts of a Roundline meter? :thumbup:

Not related to the suggestion, but I feel like you're better off using a Shape meter than use Roundline.

How do you mean? Create a shape with completely transparent fill and use stroke for the mouse action and tool tip?

Good plan. Just means adding another meter though O.O

Thanks for the suggestion. Hopefully one day Roundline will accomplish this. Or shapes will maybe take over the role of Roundline and Bar meters. :D

Ahh no. I wouldn't suggest that for my life.

I meant making a round line using shape meter, with Arcs.
https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/meters/shape/#Arc

And bars can be done with rectangles, ofc.

These are dynamic, proper, and beautiful. But everything comes at a cost. Here, it is the calculations you have to do by yourself. Arcs can be a little bit of clichè to set up, but in the end, it would look better than roundline, and you'd have absolute control over it.

Can an arc be 270 degrees?
For some Reason, the square root of X2 does not involve X

Or can an arc be 360 degrees?

When I get enough time, I'll check out these arcs. Thank you death.crafter :thumbup:
