    Keyboard hotkeys

    Is there a way for me to map particular keyboard buttons/hotkeys to particular functions within DriveLine (I.E. pressing F1 will increase volume, pressing F2 will decrease volume)?

    I am trying to implement my BMW Ibus adapter via IbusComm so that I don't lose steering wheel button functionality.

    Yes there is. There's a file called Skin_HotKeys.XML in the DefaultSkin folder. This file maps hotkeys to functions within DriveLine. If you let me know which keys you want to use for VolUp and VolDown, I will provide the XML for you to insert into that file.

    Brilliant, thanks. I wanted to use the following keys:

    Volume up = + key
    Volume down = - key
    Next = f8
    Previous = f7
    Mute/unmute = alt+m

    Some of these functions are already mapped.
    Next = Ctrl+RightArrow
    Prev = Ctrl+LeftArrow
    Home = Ctrl+Home
    Next Media Source = Ctrl+S (this cycles between WMP, XM, HD, and DAB)

    You can change these existing hotkeys pretty easily by finding your desired keycodes using this table:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...=vs.90%29.aspx

    I'll send you some XML and a new test version in a little while. I'm working on the WMP double-click and some additional skin commands to make the hotkeys easier to program.

    Also, F7 and F8 are currently reserved in DriveLine. F7 reloads the current skin, and F8 takes a screenshot. Sorry.

    Thanks for the info. Your help is appreciated. Not really too fussed about which buttons I assign though really, so I dont have to use f7&8 for volume control

    Alright. Until I'm done with my changes, I recommend setting up your system to use the keys mentioned in my previous post for Next and Prev, and make sure those work for you. I'll be surprised if they don't, but it's worth testing.

    Are these global hotkeys?
    So for example if youre in Firefox (cant embed it on a 7") you hit your hotkey and it will lower volume, play the next track etc?

    Yes, the hotkeys are global.

    I was looking all over for a pause button so I started to dig in the XML linked. Found the mute and realized it pauses

    Brings me to a question. Are the EVENTACTION variables listed someplace?

    Other rambles on the music player:
    I tend to use the playlist screen as my viewer since I listen to mostly full albums but need to skip songs. A scroll wheel input would be nice for moving up and down menus. The other thing I go back and forth on is having the current song playing being highlighted in the playlist. Perhaps the best solution there is to have the playlist instead of the visualization?
