Rainmeter Calendar by limpet Rainmeter Calendar by limpet
**Update Sept 2010**
The calendar has received an upgrade including holidays, localization and skinability.

Check out the beta at the Rainmeter forums and pitch in your ideas and thoughts.

Instead of using Rainlender I built my own calendar to use in Rainmeter.

Originally designed to fit in the Sidebar layout for the "Enigma" layout: [link]

**Update 3/30/09**
Updated to include a version with the week starting on Monday and ending on Sunday. Both the underline and bold versions have this.

A minor feature with these new calendars is they now update faster! Whoopie! Also note that I changed the font I used back to Trebuchet MS (the font ~Kaelri uses in Enigma).

Sorry for the wait, everyone. Enjoy!

**Update 1/10/09**
This is now a pack including 2 calendar types. One is the original underlined type and the other is a stylized text type to highlight the current day. Each are just as customizable as before.

Also added is the option to display part of the previous and next month in the calendar (partly displayed in the preview). Again, colors can be customized.

Also, two icons are included (credits above) and are used to enable/disable showing the extra days in the calendar by double left clicking. By right clicking you can open the Time/Date Properties window (only tested in Windows XP Pro as admin).

And then obviously the month is now displayed next to the icon. This also can be enabled/disabled, but it requires some in-config tweaking

Hope you enjoy the new features and improvements.

Nice. Unfortunately it has the same issues as the Enigma calendar... how do you change the first day of week from Sunday to Monday?

It is possible though it would require a great change to the way I do my calculations.

Unfortunately, I had not realized this until after I had written a lengthy how-to on how to change change it from Sunday to Monday. :censored:

I'll include this feature in an update. Problem is, I don't know when I'll actually finish the update :doh:

But, thanks for looking! :) I'll let you know when I have an updated version out.

I'm looking forward this also. I hope you update this soon!

I'd tried to do it myself, but the script is so huge that I don't know how to start. x_x

So this isnt a standalone Skin?

limpet Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2009
No, as it is right now, it's supposed to fit in with the Enigma theme.

I do have plans on making it look better as a stand alone skin, but I don't know when I'll be putting that up.

This is awesome. I recently switched over to rainmeter from having a html background with an embedded flash calendar. I was just wondering if it is possible to make the date bold instead of the red underline? And maybe flip between months?

Thanks, I'm glad you like it :)

Making the date bold is entirely possible and I think even flipping between months is doable. I'll see what I can do and maybe add a little bit to the existing calendar I have now, like the name of the month.

It'll probably take a week or two but when I get it finished I'll let you know ;)

Thanks so much. I was going to reply that I got the bar gone simply by setting the alpha to 0 (too many other entries to delete otherwise). Thanks for the rapid reply though.

I'm sorry to say that Rainmeter is just not flexible enough to allow me to change the month. To do that would require the ability to edit a value but you can't. Before I was forgetting that you couldn't do that and was only thinking about the ability to calculate the date for any given month.

I'm working making the current day bold and a few other tweaks. Showing the name of the month will be included too.

Thanks. You're great. I really appreciate this. I know you aren't just doing it for me but I really appreciate it.

Ok, I've currently got your feature added in, though I'm still working on making it really look bold but it will ultimately be up to you (yay customizing). And since I had a few other ideas to work on I'm going to wait until I've got them worked in until I release the new calendar.

Actually, the next update will contain 2 calendars: one for the underlined style and the other for the bold style.
