    Is it me or cf?

    I have been trying to get Skinbedder 2.999 to work correctly in CF I don't have any problems embedding however I do have problems with getting two programs to run via the parameters line.. I have iGuidance and TopoUSA and using CMD I can call "Skinbedder.exe iGuidance" to bring up iGuidance and "Skinbedder.exe TopoUSA" to bring up TopoUSA as per my ini file... I can't get CF to send the parameters correctly... I even tried making a autoit .exe script to send these parameter. Again outside of CF they load the correct program within skinbedder. However inside of CF the autoit script doesn't work. Is this me or cf or skinbedder?


    If it helps... My settings where as follows.
    <APP5>
    <PATH>C:\Program Files\SkinBedder\Skinbedder.exe</PATH>
    <PARAMETERS>topousa</PARAMETERS>
    <WINDOWNAME>SKINbedder - TopoUSA</WINDOWNAME>
    <DISPLAYNAME>TOPO</DISPLAYNAME>
    <PAUSEMUSIC>False</PAUSEMUSIC>
    <LINECONTROL>NONE</LINECONTROL>
    <MUTEONEXIT>False</MUTEONEXIT>
    <STARTFULLSCREEN>False</STARTFULLSCREEN>
    <ENABLEHEADER>True</ENABLEHEADER>
    </APP5>

    The compiled autoit topousa.au3 > topousa.exe script is..
    Run("Skinbedder.exe TopoUSA", "")
    Again works when I call it by itself but not when CF calls it...

    <APP5>
    <PATH>C:\Program Files\SkinBedder\TopoUSA.exe</PATH>
    <PARAMETERS></PARAMETERS>
    <WINDOWNAME>SKINbedder - TopoUSA</WINDOWNAME>
    <DISPLAYNAME>TOPO</DISPLAYNAME>
    <PAUSEMUSIC>False</PAUSEMUSIC>
    <LINECONTROL>NONE</LINECONTROL>
    <MUTEONEXIT>False</MUTEONEXIT>
    <STARTFULLSCREEN>False</STARTFULLSCREEN>
    <ENABLEHEADER>True</ENABLEHEADER>
    </APP5>

    What is going on?

    But 2.999 is designed so you don't have to do that .

    I use SKINbedder for iG and my TMO Datalogging software. I launch them through CF with <parameters>iGuidance</parameters> and <parameters>TMO</parameters> and it works for me. Come to think of it though, I'm not sure if I have ever used them both at the same time. Maybe CF doesn't like embedding 2 different instances of the same app?

    You could test it by just opening Notepad with two different filename parameters.

    Hy floatingpi - How did your skin work on topousa? I have been trying to use skinbedder on Delorme Street Atlas. Did you just mainly use it to grab the window? Or were you able to use it to controll other functions.

    Yea I know its designed to work for multiple programs. Just having a hard time getting my system to work with the parameters.. I think something is messed up somewhere... I had two machines both couldn't get the parameters to work that one evening... Its working now.. The o' make a post and it works trick...

    Yes I got Topo USA to work just fine. I used the side buttons found on the Media for Zoom IN / Zoom OUT, Find, Waypoint, and 3d. TopoUSA has limited shortcuts but with arranging the Tabs I was able to tab through and toggle things like 3D View. I havn't used other Delorme programs but I assume you can do something. Just open help and search the index for key and you should find the short cut keys it supports.

    I've attached my TopoUSA ini settings for CF and Skinbedder. Make sure you use the TopoUSA Tab Manage to order the tabs so its GPS, 3D, Find else the short cuts wont work. Of course you will have to change the directories for where TopoUSA is located as well.. Forgive the poor screenshot of TopoUSA, I forgot to load the Data maps on this machine so doesn't have the cool nifty maps like you normally see.

    Thanks foatingpi, This is some encouraging info, I also noticed in your screen shot that you are launching it directly from the main buttons in CF and not the APP buttons? I like this feature if its possible, i didnt know it was. I would guess it involves just editing the correct file in the CF stucture. Again thanks for the info. I will implement these changes in my system when I get back from vacation.

    open up "buttonactions.xml" in the system folder... you can specify the action for all the main buttons...
