NewMeter Realized

NewMeter: Beautiful and useful application that shows on the Workbench on a bar graph the amount of free RAM, CPU remaining and the space left in the various Volumes in the system, also shows the complete Time and Date and the day.

NewMeter can be stored anywhere on the screen through the Tooltype but can be moved later and manually where you want.

This is very nice :great, but could do with a backdrop tooltype to prevent windows falling behind it...

New version on Aminet:


Now includes backdrop tooltype (among other things), thanks Thomas! :great

On the new version I noticed a strange thing, it's not possible to move the Gadget, if you try to move it "from the text" another NewMeter Gadget opens then you can't close them anymore.


With "WINDOWS" option the first problem disappears ;)

Another weird thing but it happened also with the previous version is that it is requested (snoopdos) in "SYS:Prefs/Env-Archive/Sys/ the icon file "def_NewMeter v1.154.info".

Great tool!! Tried it today and I have 2 questions.

1) Is there a way to close it completely once opened?
2) The cpu meter shows constantly 100% . Am I doing smg wrong?

My Amiga is an 1200 with 1233n at 42MHZ running 3.1.4 with bestvWB.

If it is running as a window, click into the window and select Quit from the menu or press Ctrl-C.

If it is running as an icon, click on the icon and choose Icon -> Delete from the menu.

You probably have another CPU measuring tool running which keeps the CPU busy all the time. Or you have an alternate scheduler installed which does not update the DispCount and IdleCount fields in ExecBase.

You can activate the IDLETASK tooltype to get better results. But keep in mind that then NewMeter will keep the CPU busy, too.

Great thanks Thomas. Will try those out and I am sure it will be fine. I did have another cpu meter running (TinyMeter) so your answer was spot on!!
