Tabmeter by toastbrotpascal Tabmeter by toastbrotpascal
This is Tabmeter.
Tabmeter is a suite for your desktop which uses Rainmeter, Litestep and TrueTransparency.
Please note this is currently ONLY Rainmeter, although the screenshot shows the whole suite as it will be looking when it´s finished.
More information and a ZIP-based version can be found here:
[link]

Tabmeter comes in two color schemes, black and white.
It uses an intelligent installer that makes installation pretty easy and with the help of RainConfigure and help-files included, even people not familiar with Rainmeter can use it.

Please also note, that my nickname on Rainmeter.net is "P2C". Since it wasn´t available on deviantART anymore, I had to choose an other one.

You need a special plugin to get DesktopIcons working.
You can download it here:

Credits go to:
- albinozz- for some code [link]
-Kaelri - for some code [link]
-elestel - for FileListPlugin
- JSMorley- for RainConfigure [link]
-chrfb for ecqlipse 2 icons [link]
-animation method shown by kenz0
-Firefox Theme shown in Screenshot is "rein 3.5.1"
-legacee for help with the installer [link]

Current version is 0.7

features in upcoming version [0.8]:
-version for right side of screen [currently in progress]
-Tabbed picture viewer (with the ability to change width of the picture)[done]

If you´re using this theme, I´d be very glad if you just post an screenshot on dA, so I could make a little gallery which makes this skin more popular :)

Your link to FileListPlugin appears to be broken. Least when I tried it, I got Page Not Found.

Awesome skin by the way ^^

Thanks :)
Sorry, not possible without modifying the whole skin. If you're familiar with making Rainmeter skins it isn't hard, only a bit boring maybe.
But the next version of Tabmeter will have tabs for both sides. Though, the new version will be very different, and I'm not sure how much time it'll take me to finish it :)

i'm pretty new to rainmeter, but i was wondering why the desktop icons skin doesn't really update/refresh on its own.

I've tried tinkering with the update value but it doesn't seem to change anything

sorry if this seems to be too noob a question xD

apart that minor problem i love this skin =)

:icontoastbrotpascal:
toastbrotpascal Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2010
Thats a good question ^^;
And I'm actually not really finding an answer to it.
I just tried it out, and it's the same on my PC. The only thing I can think of is, that this is because of elestel's filelist-plugin. Try to ask the creator himself about this "problem" over at the Rainmeter forums [link]

Maybe a newer version of the plugin fixes this? You should try out the latest version of it here [link]

Hope this helps :)

Is there any easy way to change the topbar to use Winamp and not iTunes?
Reply
:icontoastbrotpascal:
toastbrotpascal Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2010
There isn´t such a function included. But probably you can change the code, to do what you want.

I´m not using Winamp and never created a Rainmeter skin that controls it. If you´re finding another Rainmeter skin that actually does this, and the author specifies that I can use the code, I could mix them together.

If not, I´m sorry :(

project-noah Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2010
Well, I don't really know much about coding. I know Transbar by =Folter-x has code for the Winamp control, but replacing it with the one in your ini obviously makes it appear at a different position, with a different font and the pause button no longer works.

Is there a way to only get the ToDo function? I like it a lot, especially the way ToDo works!
Reply
:icontoastbrotpascal:
toastbrotpascal Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2009
Well, I could easily make the ToDo funtion as an seperate skin.
What do you think?
If it is hidden, the tab should be as big as the "Shortcuts"-Tab, but when it´s opened, it should be as big as the "normal" one :)

:iconmaturemanlol:
maturemanlol Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2009
Yeah, that'd be awesome! Your ToDo is the only todo/notes skin that I actually like.
Reply
:icontoastbrotpascal:
toastbrotpascal Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2009
I´ll make one in white and black style for both right and left side of the deskop.
Just give me some time, I´ll upload it here on dA :)

Hiya!! You have that filecounter skin, but is there any chance to get it count mp3 files only not the archives?
Reply
:icontoastbrotpascal:
toastbrotpascal Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2009
Sorry, I don´t think this is possible.
The skin is based on elestel´s FileListPlugin, which (at the moment) doesn´t have this feature.
But you can take a look at the thread for this plugin and make an suggestion =)

Oh good you made it over here! You went from a really short name to a really long one, do you go by Pascal?

I downloaded (and am currently using) your 2nd beta from the forums. In this version, is the tabmeter, top bar, icons and shortcut tab the same or diffent?

Really great suite, nice work!
Reply
:icontoastbrotpascal:
toastbrotpascal Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2009
Yeah, it wasn´t easy to find a nickname on dA.
And yes, Pascal is just fine.

This one hasn´t any changes. But I´m working on it =)
