Anyone now if you can use $vars$ in rainmeter.ini? I have seen some themes that do this but can't seem to get it to work in my own themes. Is there something I am missing?
i thought that it was only supported in rainlendar
Dunno. Bump, as I'd use both rainmeter and rainlendar if I could get evars to work.
I don't think you can, but there is a workaround.
If you need the vars to position the meter or anything like that, you can just make a script that runs on startup, since !RainmeterMove and its other bangs do support $vars$.
Hope this helps.
You can use them indirectly. Save the vars somewhere else like themevars.rc. Then in rainmeter.ini, do something like this:
IF NOT meterOn
Thanks for the input guys. Looks like the short answer is no. I think I will probably end up using the bangs to position the meter.
I just looked at me code. I haven't finished the implementation of my code as posted above. Sorry. When I get back to it, I'll try to let you know.
