Patrick Muff's Color Flow for Rainmeter

By WyzzyMoon
Color Flow for rainmeter 1.8.2

Inspired by Patric Muff's IOS lockscreen clock ( see )
All the Rainmeter code is made by me but all the credit for the idea goes to Parick Muff

Icons: Geometry Icons Pack
Wallpaper: Ring

I also made Patrick Muff's Rising Bars

-1.8.2    10-12-16
Fixed the 1 second of displaying the date as 00 after a skin refresh in Date.

-1.8.1    21-10-2016
Tiny update, fixed line placement of Time.

-1.8    29-01-2016
Leap year supported added until the year 2099. It won't work from 2100 to 2104 but I don't think that will be a problem.

-1.7    28-01-2016
QD resizing added for all skins. To change size change the variable "Size" at the top of every skin.

-1.6    22-12-2015
For all the people not installing the correct font... it's now automaticly included

-1.5    04-11-2015
Added 12 Hour Clock version

-1.4    25-08-2015
Fixed a final bug in the date where the day-1 would be 00 if it was the first of the month. Now al last days show as 31 an 30 respectively. Feb shows as 28, no leap year exeptions yet.

- 1.3     02-06-2015
Fixed a bug in the date where the day would be "1" and not "01". This would mess with the positions.

 - 1.2    29-05-2015
Fixed a few bugs in next time and date where hours could say "24", minutes could say "60" day's could be "32" and months could be "13" and "-1"
They will now be "00", "00", "01", "January" and "December" respectively.
Bug still exists for last day of the month and for al next day's in moths with <31 days.
Working on it.

 - 1.1    24-05-2015
Fixed a bug in the time where the last hour or minute would show up as "-1" when the hour or minute was "00"
Bug still exists in the day of the month. When it's the 1st of the month the last day will show up as "00"
Working on it.

 - 1.0
ColorFlow released

This is great man, I'm definitely going to be using this for a long time. One question, after changing the font and size, the spacing is a little out of wack, specifically on "11" in the date column. The month pushes right, through the bar. Is there a way to fix this? Thanks again!

Yeah, there are some limits to how far you can adjust it. But if you open "Color Flow Date.ini" and scroll all the way down to the Meters, you'll find a section called [MeterLine]. You can adjust the value after X=. Keep the "#size#/10" stuff but change the multiplier. That should move the line to the right. If needed you can also adjust the X or Y values for the numbers or de month names to change the spacing

Love it!

How change size font?

If you want to change the size of the whole thing just change Size = 10 to something higher.
If you just want to edit the size of the font, scroll down a bit to the Meter and change fontsize= (Size*2) to a higher multiplier
Appreciate the design, it's a nice and clean calendar and happy of using it.

However, and that's the sad part I am a non-coder aka. Newbee. I tried to add a third line with: MON, TUE, etc. in "Color Flow Date" to complete the calendar for my purposes and failed completely. Thought it is "easy" to copy/paste and rewrite the parts I need but its not. :( So I would like to ask you, if you can provide me the code to accomplish my "mission" since I stuck for almost a day and don't know what to change/merge/modify else to get it done. I would appreciate it much and hope you can help me out with how to solve the "Weekday" problem I have.

Thank you in advance.

Hey, nice to here that you like it! The weekday is not something that I am planning to add to the main file but it shouldn't be to difficult.
do you want the day of the week after the number? or before it?
If you send me a note on deviantart I can take a look at what you tried to do and I should be able to help you out!
EDIT: Sorry, my mistake, disregard.
can i change 'april' to '04'?
WyzzyMoon's avatar
You can, if you rightclick the skin and press edit, you'll find 3 measures named "[MeasureMonth-1]" "[MeasureMonth+1]" and "[MeasureMonth]".
The last lines of these three measure is a "substitute" line that replaces "04" with "April".
But don't remove the entire line, there are a few things that need to remain.
 - You need to keep "^(\d)$":"0\0" for all 3 because that makes 04 from 4.
 - under [MeasureMonth-1] only keep "00":"December"  but change it to "00":"12"
-  under [MeasureMonth+1]  only keep "13":"January"  but change it to "13":"01"
How to add seconds to this?

That's not part of the skin. So you'd have to add it manual to get that result
