Thanks to everyone for their feedback and support. Since I have not received any problems with the plugin, I updated the version to 1.0. Along with this new version, are two new features that were requested (see below for details). In order to update from a previous version, you'll need to replace iGuidance.dll as well as config.xml. If you've made custom changes to the config.xml and don't want to replace that file, then you can simply add this line of code before the end:
I loved CFiG however as you probably know it doesn't work well with iGuidance v4 and is not built with the new SDK which makes it is a bit buggy. So, I took the liberty in creating my own version of it.
This plugin is completely flexible. To prevent the "dead button" issue CFiG had with iGuidance v4 when iNav changed the hotkey, I made all the buttons customizable. Meaning you can not only change the text of the button, but also the command it sends to the window. (Notice how the top buttons in the two skins are different) It currently only supports one button command (i.e. no alt, ctrl, etc) but that's something I hope to fix with a future release. Also, since nothing is hardcoded, this plugin could potentially embed any application. The ones I tested didn't work so well so I'm filing this feature as a potential future release, since all I cared about was to get Centrafuse working with iGuidance.
For all you iGuidance fans, please test this out and let me know what you think. This is the first release so I'm expecting a few bugs. Feedback is always welcomed.
