Just tiny question to remove info ..

Post by blabsaway22 »

Hi guys, new here, just joined and sorry for the ridiculous simple question but what is the simple easy way I would remove the showing of the Ip address in the network info? I want it to show upload/download speed, but not the ip address..

the reason for this is I screenshot and video my screen alot and I don't want the Ip address there, But I do want to show upload/download speed.

I assume I can edit the skin and find somewhere there and put something to disable the ip address being shown.


awesome little program!


Thanks.

i assume you're talking about the Network skin of the illustro suite, which is the default skin suite installed along with Rainmeter.
If I'm right, just add a Hidden=1 option to the [meterIPLabel] and [meterIPValue] meters. You also will want to add the same Hidden=1 option to the [meterSeperator] meter as well.
If you did this, you'll notice a distance between the NETWORK title and the Upload. To fix this modify the following options as it follows:

Code: Select all

[meterUploadLabel]
...
Y=40
...

...

[meterUploadBar]
...
Y=52
...

[meterDownloadLabel]
...
Y=60
...

...

[meterDownloadBar]
...
Y=72
...

all I did was add Hidden=1 to ONLY the MeteripValue and it shows up like this.. and I guess that's all I wanted so yay! thank you!

any particular reason I would need to add it to the other two you mentioned? it seems to work!

To be honest, I doubt. If you add the Hidden=1 option ONLY to the [meterIPValue] meter, but not to the [meterIPLabel] as well, you get hidden the IP address, but not the IP Address label as well. But this label not being visible in your screenshot, I suppose you1ve added the Hidden=1 option to the mentioned [meterIPLabel] meter as well.

Not absolutely necessary to add and modify all those meters, but if you don't do all things I've described, you'll:
  • Have a tiny, hard to see separator line (can be kept, if you like it). This meter is the [meterSeperator], but it's practically almost invisible, due to its transparency, set to 15 (from 255 - see the SolidColor=255,255,255,15 option of the [styleSeperator] section, used by the [meterSeperator] meter).
  • Have a distance between the NETWORK title and the Upload line. This distance is well seenable in your screenshot and can be removed by modifying the Y values, described in my previous reply. If the distance doesn1t bother you, you can keep unmodified the Y options. Your choice...
