Default Need some help with Vertical Meters

Hey there,
I actually use my "custom standard" theme -> https://stash.reaper.fm/theme/1179/so...efault%20theme

How can I create vertical meters at the TCP?

Something like: set tcp.meter h>24 [887 5 14 109 1 0 1 1] [0]



What I haven't worked out is why the numbers are brighter.

Find a theme with vertical meters and check out how it's defined in the rtconfig file.

"All" you need to do now is sort out the positioning and the edge attachments.
The 1 0 1 1] does that, but you need to change the first 4 numbers to suit your theme.

Time to reread the WALTER Themers' Guide and this thread may help, too:

Well, I've tried very, very many variations...
Either it has no change to te pic above in position or there is no meter at all...

My actual try: (with and without TB_right no difference)

set tcp.meter [282 8 12 83 2 0 1 1] + TB_right [0 0 0 0 1 0 1 1]
set tcp.meter.vu.div [1]
set tcp.meter.readout.color [0 0 0 0]

Forget using TB_right for the moment. You can try that out later.

Go with:
set tcp.meter [282 8 12 83 1 0 1 1]

but remember that the co-ordinates are used in conjunction with the tcp.size co-ordinates to work out where the meter will be displayed. Read page 17 in the Themers' Guide

Well, the themer guide finally helps me to find out, what those numbers do
My problem is, I want the meter fixed at the right side of the tcp but the first digit in the [] brackets tell, how many pixels from (!) left. A negative digit doesn't help.

I want these both parts to change places.

I suspect that they are all attached to the right-hand edge.

Look at the X (first) co-ordinate value for each object. Swap over the values in the meter and solo objects, as a start. As in:



Then you should be able to work out what to do with the others.
