How to control speed of quote plugin?

Post by JohnHorneGuitar »

Hi, I'm a total newb to Rainmeter.

I want to display a random quote pulled from a text file. I have it working fine but the quote is changing about once every second. I have tried adding and changing the UpdateRate but no luck.

How do I set it to refresh every minute, or every 5 minutes?

I'm sure it's something simple, but I can't figure it out. Thanks in advance for any help!

Code: Select all

[MeasureQuote]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=Plugins\QuotePlugin.dll
PathName=C:\Users\XXX\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\MySkin\Quote\witty.txt


[MeterQuote]
Meter=String
X=1739
Y=0
W=1920
H=100
MeasureName=MeasureQuote
FontColor=255, 255, 255, 180
FontFace=Impact
FontSize=20
StringAlign=RIGHT
ClipString=1
Text="%1"
AntiAlias=1

The answer is UpdateDivider
This value modifies the update rate of the measure. The global Update value (set in the [Rainmeter] section) is multiplied by this number to determine the update rate for the measure. For example, if the Update is set to 1000 and the UpdateDivider is 30, the measure is updated every 30 seconds. The default value is 1.
