hover over the right side of the background for the navigation or scroll up and down
Many Many thanks for a GREAT tool -- I use it heavily.
One item would be very helpful for me. I have many of my launcher entry's organized into folders (Security Apps, Photo Apps, Misc Links, etc). That works superbly -- click a folder name, then click a launcher entry in that folder. That helps keep the main Launcher background and list reasonable short. However, to get back to the main list requires a right click and select "Refresh Skin". I can't tell you how many times, in haste, I hit the wrong selection on that right-click menu!!
I have tried to figure a way to code a Launcher line item that would perform a "Refresh Skin" function. Is that something that is even possible, and if so, any suggestion? I would add that as the last line item in each folder.
Again, many thinks for this great tool!!
Setuini, thanks for the reply...
As you suggested, I have been reading about the fileview plugin and PreviousFolder command in the Rainmeter Docs, and I believe you are correct that is the answer I am looking for!
I am not a total novice at this type thing, however I have not yet read enough to understand the syntax of the command, or where it needs to be inserted into the ini file.
I will continue to study the docs and do "trial-'n'-error" testing, as I have time.
Thanks again, and thanks for any additional guidance you have time to offer!
I have just downloaded and installed this "File View Launcher". The Launcher background panel appears, however, clicking the settings button on the right top does nothing!
I used this heavily on a previous system and LOVED it, but can not remember how to create the menu folder.'
Thanks for any help.......
and a Meter to display it:
Mouseoveraction=[!setoption Index13Info Fontcolor "#Hovercolor#"][!UpdateMeter *][!Redraw]
Mouseleaveaction=[!setoption Index13Info Fontcolor "#Fontcolor#"][!UpdateMeter *][!Redraw]
LeftMouseUpAction=[!CommandMeasure mIndex11Name "FollowPath"][!UpdateMeasure mPath][!UpdateMeasureGroup Children][!UpdateMeter *][!Redraw]
MeterStyle=TextStyle | InfoStyle
you have to this for every line
So I can display new lines but I have an other probleme: the new lines display and link the same shortcut as the fisrt, so the line 13 is the same as the line 1 !
I don't know if you see what I mean so I make a video : youtu.be/ASgh5VZeYn0
It works great, thank you for the work you put into making it what it is.
i've tried to modify the launcher a little making it long with more than 11 apps per time but i'm not very good at.
Can you help me please with that?? i want to have the launcher with the background of 715 height with all the app can set in that height.
help me please!!
sorry for the english !!
and thank you very much
edit: this works flawlessly on my Win7 machine but doesnt work on my Win8.1 machine, it doesnt support win8/8.1??
Open the .ini and search for a variable called "folderpath" i think here is the problem.
The launcher displays all Shortcuts in the folder that is declared to the variable "folderpath" and the only thing the settings but does is opening that folder. Hope that helps (:
for some reason %Username% didnt point to the username folder correctly, probably because Win8 changes its name to the Microsoft account name instead.
i changed the folderpath manually and now it works perfectly,
thanks alot for the help and thanks alot for this awesome skin!
Care to help?
I mean I know how to edit some stuff .ini file but I just can't figure this out.
Thnx in advance.
it's not that hard
1. go to [mPath] and set counter to 4
2. delete unused measures and meters (in your case all after 4)
3. make the Background smaller
4. change the y of the down button
5. resize [HSdown] [HSup]
it's not that much work - so i have already done a small version with only 3 lines for you.
just replace the .ini file and enjoy
I really appreciate it.
btw, how can I change font?
wasnt able to find any lines related to font type in .ini file of the skin.
