    Day/Night Skin plugin

    Would someone be interested in developing a plugin that would check what time it is and if needed, switch between a day and a night skin? It doesn't seem like it would be that hard to write, and the interface would be limited to choosing which skins and maybe how often to check the time. I took a look at the sdk, but it is beyond my currently meager programming skills, plus I've never written anything in vb before. So, is anyone up to it?

    hmmm, like the idea, could be skin control panel

    took a quick look and i think that it is possible.

    I will give it a shot later in the week.

    I think I would like to have it change with the sunset /sunrise time like ig does. Might be able to accomplish somthing using part of the weather plugin. (i have to read up more on communication between plugins) Anyone have any other ideas how to make that work?

    I didn't think gammaControl played well with centrafuse (looking at your sig)

    Well that's because I don't know how to swithc skins in CF. If someone gives me the code on how to switch it then I'd be glad to implement it. Its not that hard to add code to a well organized app

    Alti, did you get a chance to look at this yet?

    I'd love to test it out on my Thanksgiving trip on Wednsday, as I'm sure others would, so I was just checking. Thanks

    the development for this plugin is on temporary hold, while I was able to write a quick app that will offer the select skin CF Dialog and save the result to the CF config file there is no way at present to refresh the skins without closing and reopening CF. David is adding it to the SDK, when he does I will continue working on it.
