    Is there a HowTo for getting this to work? I've tried ing for it but can't find the right info

    I'd be quite willing to if you could just point me in the right direction.

    Cheers

    Just add it to the external applications using neocar manager, do not set "always on top" option for destinator 3 frontend (to avoid OSK bugs).

    That's all. After this you will be able to start destinator from the external apps module

          OK, I've tried this now, but the Menu bar on the bottom of the destinator window is covered by the NMC bar that has the "OSK" and "Quit" buttons on it.

          Do I need to change the size of the Dest. Front End window somewhere?

            If you work in 800x600, you have to change the windowsize in Destinator configurator to 800x539. If you want to use a OSK keyboard with D3 embedded in NMC, use the OSK of D3. I found out that the one from NMC doesn't work while running D3 in my configuration.

                  Its not embedding right...

                  It is kind of random for me... at times it embeds right, at times it works like gyro...

                  in my system it works like this:

                  Click GPS from External Apps module, usually ****s everything up... I loose access to NMC, it just disappears... someitmes it launches D3 and NMC disappears, sometimes it doesnt launch D3 and NMC still disappears...
                  From other modules sometimes embdes correctly, sometimes not
                  From main, most times embeds correctly, sometimes not...

                  Just made these tests today, so these are my conclusions.... I usualyl try to launch from Music or Main modules for best results.

                    You're right here. It isn't loaded embedded. (Sorry for the wrong choice of words ). I found out in the latest beta2a from NMC that D3 doesn't work as good as in beta2. When you launch D3 from Ext Apps, the window of D3 is wider than NMC is. Everything from NMC dissapears (gets black). When quitting D3 the screen remains black until you click the black area, then NMC reappears with the controlbar below. This scenario is the same for all Ext Apps (offcourse), no matter what you try in NM with loading embedded or not.
                    BTW : I like your skin of D3 very much.

                      Yeah, I just tried it out on Beta 2a and got the same problem.... I'm glad I didnt put it in the car before testing...

                      Netsuo, can you check this out?

                      PS: for when you make esternal apps INSIDE the skin, maybe you can make it skinnable with a "Appication" object, that could have different modes like full mode/medium mode that the application would be smaller or bigger depending on the mode (Like window/maximizied modes... like GPS in centrafuse )

                        its allready like you say RoyN. In full mode external apps are now in-skin.

                        Will try to see what's passing. But please READ work in progress, i't WRITTEN in work in progress that full mode of external apps are now "in skin". WIP thread is made for this.

                        Thanks.

                            OK... Here is what happens:

                            I got it to almost embed notepad once... search string=Untitled

                            Then once it just came up black, as it usually does...


                            If I click the black with my mouse it comes up as:
