Thanks Tiggz worked like a charm. (For those following along GT3mm in the Registry is the weather meter + clock + color picker, GT3meters is the CPU monitor )

I've always liked that "sink into the desktop" look. Any chance that can be added to the rainy you did for GT3? Sorry to mention this here, but I figured you were paying more attention to this page right now.

cheers Rob, I found the font, will look at updating this with it at some point...you know how it is...finding the time etc LOL
Jürgen - you would have to import the widget into dx first of all, then fiddle around with the script in the background object. Find line 28 where it says:
r=desktopx.Object("GT3_meter_ram").text
insert a line directly beneath it that reads:
r=100-r
this will then change both readings (mb and %) to show available ram rather than used.
Hey TasT - yeah it is quite dinky at that res, which is also the resolution I use ...I wanted a titchy little meter, and I guess I got one. It would be cool if dxscript had the ability to change font sizes on the fly, it would make scripted widget resizing alot easier - maybe we will get that in a dx update one day.

Excellent Tiggz!

However it is quite small in a 1600x1200 desktop, it would be awesome if it could be resized!

Hi Tiggz
Great work (as always)
How can I configure that little cute thing to show the free avaible RAM in MB instead the used RAM ?
Thanks in advance for Help.

cheers coffeegrinder
thanks for the compliment butch
Hi Rob, yeah you might be right about the font, I will download it from somewhere and check it out
As far as the animated "rev-counter" behaviour of the meter, hehe, I've tried that before - it stresses the cpu to a small but noticeable degree which is sort of incongruous in a cpu meter imo. Although I agree with you, it would look nice

There is a more suitable font just called digital.tff where the number '1' isn't centered, I think it looks better using that font. Also, I don't know if this is possible, but I'd really love to see a CPU widget that doesn't jump instantly to whatever the cpu's load currently is e.g. more like a rev counter on a car with smooth animation from (for example) 3% up to 40%.

Other than those small niggles,its great and is sitting along side nicely between some other DX and Konfab widget
