  • Question about indicator FILE

    Hi,
    I am trying to do something similar to the backgrounds previewer of JohnWPB in this post: How to show a preview of a list if images

    The problem is that I cant see the picture preview. I think that the code to show the image is:

    I01,155,211,138,148,"FILE;$backgroundpath$$imgfile name$:A",

    but it doesnt show any image.
    How does the Indicator code FILE works?
    Do I have to put a IMG or J line in the skin to show the image?

    Thanks!!

    i think what you need to do is combine both of those variables into one before you can use the FILE indicator. I've never seen to variables being used back to back like that and i bet thats the problem

      you should be able to use multiple variables as you placed -- the only question left is on the contents of each variable -- I'd suggest making labels to display them.

        If you just use the above code, it will work, BUT the other key part is you have to propagate the variables with something. To do this, I used code on the UP and DOWN buttons that you use to go through the list, that takes the selected item in the list's file name, and places it into the variable.

        You can test to see if the line above works by placing the following lines in the skin.ini file:

        backgroundpath=c:\program Files\Road Runner\Skins\YOUR SKIN\Images\

        imgfilename=Ford.png

        Then, with the following line:

        I01,155,211,138,148,"FILE;$backgroundpath$$imgfile name$:A",

        Road Runner will use the variables, so this is what will actually be used "behind the scene" to display the image:

        I01,155,211,138,148,"FILE;c:\program Files\Road Runner\Skins\YOUR SKIN\Images\Ford.png:A",
