LuaTorrent 3.1.2

* Updated for uTorrent 3.1.2 or better.
* Fixes a problem with the size of the background if you have more than five torrents going.

I wanted a uTorrent skin that would properly adjust the display based on adding / removing torrents, shutting down uTorrent.exe, etc. and the Lua scripting capability of Rainmeter was just what the doctor ordered...

First, you must have the latest 2.2 or better of Rainmeter from [link]

You must have uTorrent 3.1.2 or better installed. This skin does not support earlier versions. A previous version of LuaTorrent that supports uTorrent 2.x is here: [link]

In the skin folder (\Skins\LuaTorrent3.1) you will find some Help(x).jpg images that will help you set up uTorrent and the skin. You must enable WebUI in uTorrent and put the settings you used in the [Variables] section of the skin. You don't need to do anything with the .lua script, it is ready to go.

Make the required changes for User/Password/Port in LuaTorrent3.1.ini and refresh the skin.

The skin displays up to 5 torrents, with a tooltip to display the full name when truncated. The interface will adjust properly depending on how many torrents you have in uTorrent. If none, or if uTorrent.exe is not running, the interface will roll up to just a single bar and be out of your way. In fact, if uTorrent.exe is not running, the Lua script will disable all measures so the skin uses virtually zero resources until needed.

Well, for me it doesn't anyway, as it does seems to work for many others.

Jeffrey thank you
I learned to program in lua by example LuaTorrent 3.1.2 a few days.
Your application is very well structured and I trained by modifying parameters, here is a modified and translated into French

Is there any way to make it ignore stopped torrents, and only monitor active ones?
I don't clear my torrents out when they finish, and it looks like this monitor just grabs them at random...

When i get new torrent, sometimes don't see on the skin.I don't know why
