    My thoughts:

    In the Config, the following are settings I could use for other things as well, so they don't need to be specific to Fuel Prices:
    Default Country
    FuelType
    Default Language
    Default PostCode (DriveLine also monitors the current postal code via GPS and internet, so entering this might not be necessary.)


    Not sure what PreCache and Internet Override do, so I can't comment on those. Same for loading/saving. I assumed it would just be automatic, based on current location and a Refresh button

    An installer is fine. However, I was hoping to just include the plugin by default. If people don't want to use it, they don't have to. Since DriveLine doesn't use an installer, an installer for the plugin would require the user to locate their DriveLine folder. Also, if the plugin is included with DriveLine, then users won't have to update both separately. I think it's better to have the skin files included with DriveLine so it's easier for people to modify them. Otherwise, there could be issues with missing skin files.

    We're almost there. If you want, I can start adding new settings to the Config screen. At some point, we'll need to sync up your changes with my latest version. I've been making lots of changes lately.

    Thanks for all your hard work. Sounds like it's real close.

    A very basic version is close once I can get the postcode changeable and/or GPS coords then we'll have something that can be tested (country can be done manually in the ini for test versions if we can't get that in)

    The changes required should be minimal. - Just adding catches for plugins for labels and commands which send commands to subs in one form. (I'm trying to make it so that one code addition works for all my plugins rather than add code for each one).

    Will having a look at this OSK, GPS tonight. (might also look if I can use your country/language settings)

    Fueltype : there is a specific list for each country which the plugin can search for, so it is better to do it via that.

    All my worker plugins get updated automatically. The FE 'wrapper DLLs' get a new version downloaded which the user is advised of and then they run an updater program to update them.

    Download the RideRunner version and look at the PDF manual included, it should give you a good idea of the way the plugin works.

    Depending on how you're doing it, some of these may help:

    Skin variables:
    %geoloc_currzip% -- this is your current postal code.
    %gpslatnum% -- this is your current latitude in numeric format (degrees, decimal)
    %gpslonnum% -- this is your current longitude in numeric format (degrees, decimal)

    I can add one for country, either via geolocation or from a config list.

    As for the OSK, it might require some collaboration. I can add a skin command for displaying the OSK and specifying a destination object for the text.

    Cool, I'm sure I would have found them by looking at the skins/code. But that saves time.

    Would probably prefer to do it from the list that's in the plugin. (might have it update automatically if the country geo located is in the list)

    If the calling code can add a variable for the result to be put in that would be enough. (looks like how you're sort of doing it now)

    Have left work and then lost access to my site from my home broadband, so couldn't set up the beta section for testing for Driveline.

    Have now done that so let me see if I can put something together to test.

    Testing stage and looking good! Great work so far Enforcer. A little fine tuning and I think we have a winner. SNO
