The code you posted does not include variables and measures needed to test and help with your question.
Post your entire rmskin package may provide the details needed to help you.

Thank you for your response, Someone helped me to work around and instead of trying to rewrite the code in order to use FileChoose plugin instead of FileView.

It is an interesting skin code that expands folders in a very intuitive mode. Unfortunately it won't show thumbnails when folder files are photos or videos, it just shows the icon assigned to its type of file. The code uses FileView plugIn.
I wanted to recode it so it can run with FileChoose plugin instead so it can show photo files thumbnails and not just its icon whenever I mouseover.

You ca find a demo of the skin here: https://youtu.be/WEQzOHPr5ho
And the skin here: https://github.com/juh9870/EXpandableFolder/releases/tag/1.0.0

There is a simpler way to do it since the code uses FileView and recoding it would take more time.

Yincognito (https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?t=33767&hilit=filechoose&start=40#p209648) wrote this:

Here's what you need to do. Open your [SkinFolder]\@Resources\include\tiles.inc.template file in your favorite text editor and:

1) comment the OnChangeAction line in the [MeasureFileIcon%%] measure by adding a ; at the start of the line:

Code: Select all

; OnChangeAction=[!SetOption MeterTileIcon%% ImageName [MeasureFileIcon%%]]
2) add the following after the [MeasureFilePath%%] measure, to get the file type and change the corresponding meter's image name based on whether the type is of an image or not (the full path to the file including the file name and extension if it's an image, or the FileView's created icon files that correspond to the system's icon for that file type):

Code: Select all

[MeasureFileType%%]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=FileView
Path=[MeasureFolder]
Index={%%+1}
Type=FileType
IfMatch=(?i)^(?:png|jpg|bmp|gif|tif|webP|ico)$
IfMatchAction=[!SetOption MeterTileIcon%% ImageName "[MeasureFilePath%%]"]
IfNotMatchAction=[!SetOption MeterTileIcon%% ImageName "[MeasureFileIcon%%]"]
IfMatchMode=1
3) add the following line to the [MeterTileIcon%%] meter, to avoid distorting the thumbnail to match the square shape used by the tiles and display it using its original aspect ratio between the image's width and height:

Code: Select all

PreserveAspectRatio=1

Yes, I saw the discussion in the other thread... glad you were able to describe your ideas and find a possible solution by rendering resized images :thumbup:
