A perfect example of it's usage: YourMixer OSD App Volume Mixer

{clip!}

OSD = On Screen Display :D

I was wondering if you could add other mouse actions to the plugin's capabilities; middle mouse up, scroll up, and scroll down? I have a project in mind that could use your plugin with those added abilities... :sly:

I tried to build the plugin but did not have #include "PluginHotInput.h" required by your source code. :(

I have build instructions if you have missed it. The header file is in src folder.

Also, sure, I'll try to add it in next few days. I got exams coming, or I would have added it today.

I don't do much building from source code and must have missed that. Thanks D.C.

No hurry, good luck on your exams! :great:

Can you post your code?
Additionally, it will be helpful if you can record the issue in action and post it here too (for example using free small portable app GifCam).

After running the test skin for some time:

1) Rainmeter starts producing visual glitches that spread to various parts of Windows and/or other Rainmeter skins.
2) Rainmeter and/or skins become unresponsive.
3) The tray icon becomes invisible (the tray element is there but the graphical icon is invisible)

I am not sure if this is related to the problem which Judian81 has. There are some differences between Judian81 and my case.
For Judian81 it happens after the Refresh all and the tray icon stops blinking. For me it happens simply after some time and the tray icon becomes invisible.

Anyhow, I am now trying the test skin again but with the modified code to make tray icon not change every second. In my case it could be due to the every second changing icon. I am also running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit at the present moment.

Couple of visual glitches attached.
