[Bug] Rainmeter trying to open a non existent png file that hasn't been called

Post by Jaime Méndez »

Hello!

I think i found a Rainmeter bug. I have checked up the code many times. I have cleaned up the code and mess left after many reviews and fixes. The skin runs quite well and its performance and behavior aren't affected in any form due to the error that is thrown over the log report window at each load and refresh time.
Rainmeter attempts to open an unnamed png file even though there isn't any pictures file to load and no instructions to do so in any Metere or Measure. The skin generates only icon files working as expected.

I post the skin and the font that has to be placed into fonts folder due to size limitation rule.

Thank you for developing this great software!

I think this message is associated with this change:
Change History wrote: Image meter:Fixed a long standing bug where dynamically changing an image from a valid file to a non-existent file would not reset the detected size of the meter. Also added an error in the log when this happens.
I may be mistaken, but I believe it appears when the FileView plugin recreates the icons when a new path is applied.
Not sure you can avoid this message; as you noticed, it does not affect the skin functions.

I was getting this error message a while ago too.
As a workaround: create one empty (1x1) ".png" file in the directory :thumbup:
.rar

You are right, I don't thing I could avoid the error. I might be a bug related to FileView rather than to Rainmeter itself. I may be a case for the developers.

It works but the problem is that I'd have to place an empty file in all PC directories and subdirectories in order to get rid of the bug. The Skin is a directory browser that reads files and folders every where and represents its icon files and thumbnails pictures.

Understood. Maybe someone can offer you another solution.
