Grabbed more icons from the man that you took some of yours from, but now all the icons are massive since the ones that came with the file are 48x48 and his are 256x256. Do I need to go into photoshop and scale all the icons down to 48x48 or is there a line from one of the settings.ini's that sizes them down?
Just started using rainmeter, and I am not so good. This looks cool thoug, but I have a problem, that when I hower over the arrow, the line shows up, but when I try to run my mouse over and on to an icon, it just disapeares.
alts - "hey friend !! - i've been preparing a "metro segment" for a write review for creativx.net for a few months now and requesting your permission to include some of your works in the review - it won't be for a few day's as i'll be waiting for everyones "permission requests" to come in - will be an awesome review and your invited to come visit to view and read - the main idea is to showcase brilliant works by contemporary designers and help educate members worldwide about metro - ill also have prepared the same for "windows 8" - so, would very much appreciate your permission and designers will get full credit for their goods - looking forward to all prospective permissions - many thank's friend !!"
Hi, Is it possible to have one launcher call another? For example, say the sixth item or ICON in the launcher represents a group of 10 programs that are shown by calling a second launcher or sublauncher I set this up, but the call to the second or sublauncher produces nothing. The sublauncher will not open up. This is how I did it:
app4=!ActivateConfig Testa2 Launcher.ini
The second launcher is a separate skin in the Skins folder. My plan was to either have the second launcher appear beside the first or in place of the first. If you have any ideas, I'd appreciate it.
whell. making it call another skin would result in a slow time of response. but if you create more entrys of items in the skins and in the variables files you could add more launchers, and say you want to make this new launchers apear when you click one of the originals items.
what you have to do to make this is make a group with your new launchers, and make it so when you click one of the originals items it shows the sub-launchers, and when your mouse leaves the skin deseapears as the rest of the skin
i'll try to explain it better
as you can se in the skin, every launcher icon has in their options an entry call Group=1 as well as an entry "hidden=1"
the hidden is so they don't show by default.
and then the arrow has this entry: MouseOverAction=!Execute [!RainmetershowMeterGroup 1][!RainmeterRedraw] that makes it show the entire group 1
and finally the backgroud entry has a command similar to this last one but instead of showing the icons it hides them when your mouse leave the area of the skin
if you follow me until now you might have an idea of what you have to do.
you create 10 more icons entry from 11 to 20 , as whell as the variables in the variables file and the entrys for the apps titles as well, then to the icons entrys you made, make them be a group 2 instead of 1
and put this "LeftMouseUpAction=!Execute [!RainmetershowMeterGroup 2][!RainmeterRedraw]" whitout quotes in the variable of the icon you want to use to show the other ten.
and finally modify the background command so that it looks like this
Either I didn't follow or we have a misunderstanding. I didn't mean to put 20 icons in one launcher. I wanted to call a new launcher skin from the first launcher skin icon. This would in effect allow an infinite number of calls or icons to be available. Here is a simple diagram:
This would work as follows: Clicking on the first icon in launcher 1 would open a new launcher with 10 more or sub icons. Clicking on any other icon in Launcher 1 would do the same opening a new launcher with 10 additional new icons, if desired. I would like to use your launcher this way so I could have the option of using a Group Title in Launcher 1, with all the attendant data/programs in the sub launcher. For example, I could use an icon in Launcher 1 for Taxes, when clicked a second launcher opens with a single years tax data in each icon (2001 thru 2010).
Sorry for the lengthy explanation. My problem is when I call a new launcher from an existing launcher, it doesn't work. I'm sure I have done this before, but for some reason I can't get it to work now.
funciono de primera! me costo un huevo hacerlo pero encontre los numeros que me faltaban con las "x" y las "y" y hay q cambiar el background xq es muy chiko y no entran los iconos muchas gracias, yo tam soy de arg de rosario!
genial, las x y las Ys, no de te dije porque eran dinamicas (depende cual es dinamica si es horizontal o vertical la skin q usas), es decir, nose si te fiajste q tenian escrito #icondistance#r es la variable q hace q esten a la misma distancia, raro si no te andaba asi.
lo del fondo si tenes razon me re olvide de decirtelo, todo un tema el rainmeter jaja
For every one who can't understand spanish, if you tried what i'd posted bebore and it didn't show properly, make sure you adjust the size of the [backgrond] entry, otherwise the icons that you add, would be "outside" of the part of the skin that is displayed
sorry didn't read right, ideally it would be perfect to make it open when you hold your finger in the arrow but i've couldnt find such comands in rainmeter manual, i don't think it can be done that way.
but maybe you could use one of the launcher spaces to open it. or add a text or an icon that apears under the arrow when hover.
