  • hotkey support disabled while embedding destinator6

    Hi.
    Iím have problems using hotkeys when embedding Destinator6. As soon as the gps program embeds and the gps screen is shown, destinator takes focus and hotkey support is no longer active. If I press on the RR skin section then the hotkeys are active for one press. After that destinator regain focus and the hotkeys are disabled.
    I tried the getfocus command but it does not work because rr loses focus and the command is probably never executed.
    Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can solve this situation?
    Any info on the matter would be deeply appreciated.

    All Iím trying to do in the gps screen is use hotkeys to zoom in, zoom out and return to the main screen.

    I've fiddled with D6 a bit and suggest you change strategy.....Try dropping the DestinatorMSG.Inf from 5.1 into 6 and set the res to 240 x 320 (not landscaped though).

    That way you'll get the pda skin up,trouble i'm having though is it doesn't scale well and if you stretch it or embed to rr size the buttons vanish.

      The button problem that you are facing is easy to fix. The buttons are configured in destinator.inf. One of the many options that configure the buttons is the anchor option. Depending on the position of your button, set the anchor button accordingly. This will permit you to resize the map window without any problems. I have my D6 embedded in RR with a map size of 700x600 and it is working great. The problems that I'm facing is different. As stated above, the hotkey support that RR provides is in someway disabled because RR looses focus. Due to the hotkeys being crippled I cannot use me wired remote to control RR.
      Anyway I found a workaround using a great little application called AUTOHOTKEY. It is a scripting language something like autoit.
