RecycleManager

Post by smurfier »

So, I want to make a recycle bin that shows half empty when the content is below 100mb, two thirds full below 1gb, and completely full above 1gb. The problem is that the plugin exports the size already scaled. I get really confused when I put it in a string meter without autoscale and get it in bytes. Anyone out there with suggestions?

Well. You can put it through a calc (I think)
(RetrievedValue)/1048576 = How many Mbs (1024 is a Gb)

So...
[MeasureCalcMb]
Measure=Calc
Formula=#RetrievedValue#/1048576

[MeasureCalcSpace]
Measure=Calc
Formula=[MeasureCalcMb] > 1024 ? 2 : (Value > 100 ? 1 : 0)
IfBelowValue=1
IfBelowAction=!Execute [!RainmeterShowMeter ImageHalfEmpty][!RainmeterHideMeter ImageTwoThirds][!RainmeterHideMeter ImageFull]
IfEqualValue=1
IfEqualAction=!Execute [!RainmeterShowMeter ImageTwoThirds][!RainmeterHideMeter ImageHalfEmpty][!RainmeterHideMeter ImageFull]
IfAboveValue=1
IfAboveAction=!Execute [!RainmeterShowMeter ImageFull][!RainmeterHideMeter ImageHalfEmpty][!RainmeterHideMeter ImageTwoThirds]

[Edit] You can't use dynamic variables with plugins though... have to find a way around that I'd suppose. >.>

Well...one wouldn't have to use dynamic variables with your method. Problem is, when you put something that is 24mb in the recycle bin, the measure reads 24.0 M. If it read in bytes, things would be very simple.

Isn't the M for million (so value is actually 24 million, but it's 24.0 M to make it easier to read)?

24 megabytes = 25 165 824 bytes

with that I would just be able to divide by 100,000, which gives me a completely incorrect number.

Turns out I was unwittingly doing the wrong math. Now that I'm doing things right, it's working beautifully.

No, the "M" is for "Mega". It's just a shorthand for MB. "Mega" just so happens to be the SI prefix for "one million". However, when dealing with data, they don't use the real values of the SI prefixes. Instead they just sort of stole them and made them correspond to similar values in terms of powers of 2. Normally, "Kilo" would be 103 which is 1000, but for data, it's 210 which is 1024. It's close enough to 1000, but not quite, which is why you often see discrepancies. The rest of the common prefixes going up are "Mega", "Giga", "Tera" and in extreme cases, "Peta" which are 220, 230, 240 and 250 respectively.

Well, that explains a lot. I got my numbers from here.
