Vista Rainbar V4 by Gavatx Vista Rainbar V4 by Gavatx
Update V4.3 - 05/07/2008
- Added an installer (thanks to Legace), now installation of the sidebar is very easy
- Weather : Modified how do the sun appear (now when weather is "fair", you'll see a nice sun on the gadget)

Update V4.2 - 14/05/2008
- Weather : added moon phases, and edit how do the colour of the bottom change
- Calendar : Enhanced the gadget behaviour, and added a window to set the first day of the week (Monday or Sunday)
- RSS Feeds : Changed default skin, like the original one. You have to install Calibri Font to have a better look. I added it in folder "Fonts"

Update V4.1 - 14/04/2008
- Fixed bug on sidebar background if Rainmeter isn't installed on Windows's drive
- Added shadow under clock switches
- Enhanced calendar and weather gadget to look more like original sidebar
- Better background behaviour when mouse over

4th version of Rainbar, Vista Sidebar clone for Rainmeter, in english.

Don't forget to read carrefully the READ ME to install it.

New glass gadget gallery, new enhanced gadgets and new options. Hope you'll enjoy it.

Feel free to report bugs and mistakes, I'll try to solve it.

Thanks :

- fediaFedia [link] for his help, his ideas and his work

- halfwayglad [link] for some pictures

- Tone94 [link] for Media Player gadget

- Microsoft for original idea

Thank you very much for a great app for XP from Russia!
I have some suggestions for improving the program:
1) make a list of notes with headers and open them by double clicking with the ability to resize the note which was opened.
2) have the ability to switch the setting on the mail service the local outlook (in addition to g-mail)
3) have the ability make notes for each date on the calendar.
4) to switch between calendar months.

Hello,
Can the email checker use the IMAP protocol, instead of POP3? In this way it could indicate the unread messages (I think).
Thank you

I can't use the Mail checker, because when I click to Configuration address the notepads opens and the next error message appears: The system cannot find the path specified. Can you fix this error? Thank you

A kind of a bug which I find pretty annoying when it comes to this wonderful sidebar is a problem connected with staying in the same position.
I play Perfect World game. My screen resolution is 1440x900 while the highest resolution that the game offers is 1280x854. So the resolution changes. Everytime I finish playing screen resolution comes back to its initial setting. But sidebar never notices that and stays there where a 1280 wide screen would end (and there is a space to its right side). Changing resolution and then going back to the initial one does not helps as well as restarting my computer. I had to reinstall it. Is it going to be that way forever? Or is there any solution to that problem?

1. There's a new version available, look in rainmeter forums
2. To avoid this problem, right click every rainmeter gadget on screen and from skin menu uncheck the "keep on screen" option.
