Default Created new window for live use

Hi everyone,
I use Reaper for live playing in church and being inspired by "Notes Reader" from Hector Corcin (HeDa) I created similar Reascript window that suits to my needs.
I have colored regions in each song like chorus or verse and I have several songs open. The window shows name and color of current region, progress bar (in color of next region), name of next region and big play/pause/stop indicator.
The widow is also divided to 6 sections (divided with slightly visible lines) that you can use to click the comfortably big areas and trigger any actions. I use it to move to next or previous project tab, to play and stop the song and to close the window. I created clickable areas because I use dedicated computer without monitor, connected in rack by USB to digital mixer (X18) and by ethernet to wifi router. I wirelessly connect by phone or tablet to remote desktop (using VNC). Therefore I need big comfortable clickable area to switch between songs and play it on tablet.
You can change the following parameters in the beginning of the script:
- position and size of window
- size of text
- size of progress bar
- size of play sign
-6 actions IDs + action titles

See enclosed image and try Lua script.
