Clearbox for Rainmeter [v1.1 | 5/May/2014]

By Redsaph
RAINMETER 3.0 BETA R2012 OR ABOVE MUST BE INSTALLED TO RUN THIS SKIN


Hey guys! This is a Rainmeter skin called Clearbox and is based from my previous skin Clearlist. This was inspired by minimalist CD art displays, but shows information only when hovered, which is a great space saver.

Clearbox for Rainmeter is a basic widget for displaying what's "now playing" on your music player!

Your thoughts and ideas are greatly requested!

Thanks :)

Gotta love it, but there's one thing i've wanted this type of skins to have, and is that the track names automaticly scrolls, so i can see the full name of the song (in others, without blocking other skins)... and that's because there's songs with names like "Elderly woman behind a counter in a small town". That would be a pretty good adition to this.

BTW great skin! it actually replaced the one i've been using.

I updated it, be sure to re-download and re-install the skin! Thanks for the suggestion!

Thank you very much for using it! Is the font displaying properly?

I've been thinking about that too and I'm looking for a way how to implement it. Thanks for reminding me and for your suggestion! :)

err, the scrolling is kinda buggy, i'm checking some other information to fix it, i'll tell you if i find something

Is it because the progress bar is too thin? Thanks for the feedback Thumbs Up
