Gadgets Additions 4.1.0

90 61 44K (20 Today)
Published: March 11, 2018
Desktop monitoring inspired by the AddGadgets.com (and Orbmu2k) Windows Sidebar Gadgets.

This suite was created as addition to SilverAzide's suite to complete the move of our beloved Addgadgets.com collection from Windows Sidebar-Gadgets to Rainmeter.
Since many things like power control or volume control were never covered by Addgadgets, Orbmu2k's gadgets were a great addition at the time, so some gadgets were also redone for the suite.
Over time, many more gadgets have been added to the suite which none of both awesome collections ever had.

Rainmeter 4.3 and .NET Framework 4.5 or newer required to use this suite!

Compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10


Each skin has a settings skin and can be scaled individually for any resolution.
Detailed descriptions for each setting can be found via tooltips, easily accessible by hovering the setting text with your cursor.

You can choose between several different styles through the launcher skin to set it globally and customize some of the used colors to your needs:
  • Default
    • Typical gradient styled background we know and love
  • Blurred Edges
    • Colored Background with blurred edges, the used color can be defined
  • Solid Color
    • Colored Background, the used color can be defined
  • Solid Accent
    • Colored background, uses the defined windows accent color
  • Modern Gadgets
    • Matches mostly the Modern Gadgets style by raiguard
  • Glass Blur
    • Windows 7 styled blurred background (Aero)
  • Glass Acrylic
    • Windows 10 styled blurred background
Both glass variations require Win8/10.

Media skins:

Media Control
  • All in one Media Control with 3 different skins changeable via the context menu
  • Simple Media Control:
    • Uses media-key-strokes to control the current local media player (works out of the box with more or less all local players)
  • Local Media Control:
    • Shows metadata from a local media player and the cover-image if available, hover the skin to reveal the controls
    • The used player has to be set in the settings skin! (AIMP, CAD, iTunes, MediaMonkey, Spotify, Winamp, WMP, WLM)
    • Not all features work with all players (more: docs.rainmeter.net/manual/meas…)
  • Web Media Control:
    • Shows metadata from a web media player and the cover-image if available, hover the skin to reveal the controls
    • A browser extension has to be installed!
      Chrome: chrome.google.com/webstore/det…
      Firefox: addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef…
    • Supported sites:
      Amazon Music, Deezer, Google Play Music, Pandora, Plex (Music), PocketCasts, Soundcloud, Spotify, Tidal, Twitch, Youtube
    • Additionally the skin supports the Spotify Desktop App (including the cover what does not work with the Local Media Control), but sadly this doesn't work out of the box...
      • Currently this is the only available solution for Rainmeter:
        Patch your Spotify Desktop installation with Spicetify.
        Follow the how to but before applying enable the WebNowPlaying Extension on the second extension-page.
        This has to be redone each time the Spotify app gets an update.

Please try the one from SilverAzide too:
Top Process Meter - Gadgets Patch 5.0.0 by SilverAzide

If there's the same problem, maybe your Performance Monitor database got corrupted, then take a look at the Note of the following link:

And if it's working with SilzerAzides Version then please report back so I know I have to take a look at this.

thanks for your reply, it says top GPU Meter requires Windows 10 Fall Creator's Update 
I'm using windows 8.1

Then I'm wondering why it's even working in your version.
I'm writing the same in my description, GPU needs Windows 10.

I'll have to check this in a Win8.1 virtual machine (but that's nothing what has high priority).

I can't get the RSS reader to work with reddit or npr.  Is there a setting I'm overlooking? It works fine with BBC though.  Thanks.

I've tested both and you're right, these feeds do not work with my regex no matter what you enter in the settings.
In the next version I'll take care of it. Maybe with a second skin or with another way of getting each single feed data piece.
With some luck it should be ready this weekend.

Thanks for the response. It took a little (actually a lot) of reading on my part but it has something to do with the shift away from RSS to Atom. I've been using LimeyCanuck's rss reader for now but even his has a few quirks that are off. And sadly it looks like he has fell off and no longer supports it.

Hi! I just started to use rainmeter to monitor everything on my PC and this gadget collection is great!
I wanted to ask two improvement to the player gadgets:
1) It' possible to have cover and media control on the same gadget? I would love to have the cover gadget with 2/3 rows under it for title, author and album. And when I move my mouse over the cover it make appear the media buttons
2) It's possible to have one gadget for more players depending on what I'm using? For example: I have both Musicbee and Spotify on my computer. I would like to have a unique gadget that will display spotify or MB songs depending on what is currently playing.

P.S. Also I'm glad you put your code on github! I think that this kind of things should always be open source!

DudebakerEdited |Hobbyist Interface Designer
I'm glad you like my collection!

1) Yes this is definitely possible but would take some time to do, maybe I'll add that to my ToDo list... ;)
2) And a Yes to this.

Here's the howto for, I think, the fastest way to do this:
1. Go to "C:\Users\---USERNAME---\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\Gadgets Additions\resources\Variables"
2. Make a copy of the file "MediaControl.inc" and name it "MediaControl2.inc"
3. Go to "C:\Users\---USERNAME---\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\Gadgets Additions"
4. Make a copy the folder "Media Control" and name it "Media Control2"
5. Open this new folder and change "#@#Variables\MediaControl.inc" to "#@#Variables\MediaControl2.inc" in the top of each file
6. Restart Rainmeter
7. Open this new skin through the Rainmeter context menu ("Rainmeter -> Skins -> Gadgets Additions -> Media Control2 -> Media Control with now playing.inc")

It will behave as the usual one, including it's settings skin which you can set for example to Spotify and the normal one to Musicbee.
The only difference, it will not be listed in the launcher skin (more modifications needed...)

Rainmeter skins are always open source, as you will see if you do these changes. :)
Even the downloaded rmskin-files can be opened by 7zip or equivalent.
Only the plugins, but the ones I'm using are open source as you'll see by their github links.

Great work! Thanks!

Hi everyone!

I'm hoping to help contribute somewhat by providing an edited Stocks.ini so that there are 9 working fields instead of 5.

There was also a spelling mistake for the word "open" when you hover a stock item to open in a browser so I corrected that too.

All I did was open the Stocks.ini in EditPad and copied/pasted a Market Measures section and normal Market section four times, after Market5.
Then went through every item that had the number associated with that particular field and changed it to 6, 7, 8, or 9.
A key parts was to adjust the y= line (2 for each field) for each field so that the field gets moved down the interface correctly.
Simply add 60 to the amount of the previous entry.

Here is the .ini to save people time. Of course you can open the file in a text editor and see that only those changes were made.
Otherwise you can just do the editing yourself but it took me over an hour.

MEGA NZ /#!qjgCTKrL!TynxSP5gB6i_yvKhL1QuBWi_1SpP9XkgxHV41HQ0ffI

Backup the original and copy this one there.

The interface seems to only accept 9 fields so I didn't try 10 or more.
This is set by right-clicking the interface - Settings and enter a number of 1 to 9 in the Entries box.

I haven't had time yet to edit the Settings file to have more fields but to add tickers for fields 6, 7, 8 and 9, just right-click the interface - select Skin Variables file and add the lines along with your CNBC ticker symbols:

Use the ticker symbols from cnbc.com (unless you've changed the source url in the Stocks.ini file already). Just go to the markets section and hover an item to see the ticker in the url.
A %40 is actually the @ symbol and if there is a %3D, keep that (see below)

I have 9 item successfully running. Everything works and looks great. There are metals, currencies and stocks (DJIA & other commodities).

Here are some examples:

EUR%3D (euro-usd)
.DJIA (Dow Jones)
@CL.1 (crude oil)

I can't figure out why the author set up settings to allow 9 fields but did not also edit the Stocks.ini to also have up to 9 fields.

Really hope this helps those who are interested. I'm really enjoying it and would like others too as well.
Please mirror the file elsewhere or maybe the author can add it to their release or update it after thoroughly checking the file of course.

Thanks again to the author for this great pack!

Glad you like my pack!

Thanks for the info about the typo.

Only because my skins support more entries (wannabe responsive) and I've forgot to block you to enter more then five in the settings skin, that doesn't mean I felt the need for including more of them.
No one complained, so nothing was added... but ok now I have my complain and I'll add modified skins (currencies, cryptocurrencies and stocks) in the next version which support 10 entries too... ;)

One notice:
Please do NOT mirror my suite on other sites.

I really like your Gadgets! Thanks!
I use "Frosted Glass" on SilverAzides Gadgets! Just love it!

Is it possible to add "Frosted Glass" using FrostedGlass plugin in this gadget?

Glad you like our Gadgets!
I've took a look at this skin and this time the modification is even easier as for SilverAzides suite.

Add the following block above the meter [MeterBackground]:

Measure= Plugin

Refresh the skin (right click and refresh).
Go to the settings of this skin (arrow icon and then gear icon) and change the following:

Background = 1
Reflection = 1
Shade = 1
Shine = 1
Blur = 0

The gap on this skin is a little bit bigger than on mine or SilverAzides ones but this would need probably many more modifications to fix.

Excellent! That was spot on!
With my background wallpaper all the Gadgets get a soft frosty and kind of glowing feel. So pretty!

Usage example of my suite with blur style combined with SilverAzides suite modified to be blurred too (see my comment under his suite for detailed instructions to do this modification).

Is any variant to change border color?
Reply  ·  
Dudebaker's avatar
DudebakerEdited |Hobbyist Interface Designer

Unfortunately there are no variants with different border-colors nor is there a variable to change the border-color directly.
But since all skins use the same template-files, you only have to change the colors in two of them.

Paths to these files (change "---your_user_name---" to your windows-username):
C:\Users\---your_user_name---\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\Gadgets Additions\resources\Templates\AddGadgetsUI.ini
C:\Users\---your_user_name---\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\Gadgets Additions\resources\Templates\AddGadgetsUIDynamic.ini

Since the windows editor shows all in one row, open the files with Notepad++ or SublimeText (they even have downloadable plugins for color-highlighting the Rainmeter syntax!) or a similar text editor.

In both files you'll find the line "; AddGadgets UI Meters" and below you'll find the background, borders and gradient skins.
The border-color is assigned by the command "SolidColor=x,y,z,a".
x = 0-255 for red
y = 0-255 for green
z = 0-255 for blue
a = 0-255 for transparency

It's on my todo list to add the same border-style-options as the ones in SilverAzides suite... ;-)
