By arkenthera
Makes your taskbar translucent with blur behind it. Only works on Win10.

CHANGELOG

VERSION 1.2
Added 2+ multi monitor support.Can not test it due to not having 2+ monitor,message me if you have any problems

VERSION 1.1
Added an option for disabling blur. Adding AccentState=2 to [TranslucentTaskbar] will disable the blur effect.

Basic Plugin Setup:
[TranslucentTaskbar]
Measure = Plugin
Plugin=TranslucentTaskbar
UpdateDivider=1



To disable Blur:

[TranslucentTaskbar]
Measure = Plugin
Plugin=TranslucentTaskbar
UpdateDivider=1
AccentState=2


Source code for the plugin : gist.github.com/arkenthera/7a8…

KNOWN ISSUES:

* Coming out of screen saver, skin gets broken and doesnt work until reloading. (Looking for a fix)
* after sleeping the PC and awaking it, skin gets broken and doesnt work until reloading.
* On multi-monitor setups, some people experienced their non-primary desktop taskbar reverts to original taskbar. I don't know the exact cause and I can't reproduce it on my PC.

I just fresh installed Windows 10, everything is working great except this skin, it worked before the fresh install. Here's what it looks like in Rainmeter settings


[TranslucentTaskbar]

Active=1

WindowX=0@1

WindowY=0@1

ClickThrough=0

Draggable=1

SnapEdges=1

KeepOnScreen=1

AlwaysOnTop=0

AlphaValue=255

AutoSelectScreen=0


Does this look correct?

On multi-monitor setups, my non-primary desktop taskbar reverts to original taskbar, as you mentioned. It really bother me.

Still my the one and only fave skin
