Bring up the Rainmeter window

12 posts in this topic

Is it possible to get up the Rainmeter window somehow? If I try to Run it, nothing happens. Probably because the program is already running. So, is this possible somehow?

spuuunit,

What do you have to do manually to get this dialog to display? Select an item from a tray icon menu? Click an icon on the Desktop? :huh:

Remember that probably no-one else here uses this app. ;)

Oh, sorry. I'm a bit slow today...

Hmmm, the only way I can see right now is to right click on the toolbar icon and chose Refresh all. But that's what I really want to avoid... Maybe this is more of a question for the Rainmeter forums. Thanks anyway.

This is from the Rainmeter docs. Maybe this'll help.

 

Manage is accessed in several ways:

  • Left-Click the Rainmeter icon in the Windows Notification Area on the taskbar.
  • Right-Click the Rainmeter icon in the Windows Notification Area on the taskbar and select "Manage".
  • Using the !Manage bang as an action in a skin or from the command line as a parameter to Rainmeter.exe.
  • Right-Click any running skin on the desktop and select "Manage skin".

spuuunit,

Right-Click the Rainmeter icon in the Windows Notification Area on the taskbar and select "Manage".

This thread shows how you can interact with the tray icons. :)

Rainmeter, I used to use that some years ago. It used to have an ini file to keep the settings. I used to close the process, write modifications to the ini file and then run the program again. perhaps you could do the same if the latest version has not changed too much since then. :)

Sorry for the late response, but I've now found an OK solution for this. This is how I open it:
 

Run(@ComSpec)
WinActivate(@ComSpec)
WinWaitActive(@ComSpec)
Send("""C:\Portables\Rainmeter\Rainmeter.exe"" {!}Manage")
Send("{ENTER}")

Try This. I haven't tested it myself, so I don't know if it'll work or not..

ShellExecute("C:\Portables\Rainmeter\Rainmeter.exe","!Manage")

Oh, that worked even smoother, thanks. :guitar:
