  • RR 03-16-05... Few things..

    Here are the changes in this version:

    * Added Switching Data Labels support (here it is More Mods)
    * Added "SWITCHLABEL" dynamic skin command
    * Added OSK support for EMBBEDED applications
    * Added "LEFTTORIGHT" skin command (foreign support)
    * Improved Keyboard support
    * Improved clear playlist to stop winamp
    * Fixed OSK typing bugs from 3-15

    The OSK support for embbeded application right now is simply "blind" because I have not yet seen any OSK skin that doesn't use the entire screen. I can improve it once someone comes up with a skin that has a OSK designed for emmbeded apps.

    Just look at the skin commands.txt for details on added commands. Fixed a few more bugs and that's it... I spent hours trying to figure out the left-to-right support stuff, but learned a few with it too...

    I'm doing things as soon as I can, but I'm still only one... My priorities are currently in the following order: fix bugs, improve skin support, add features that most will use, then other features.

    Thanks for the support,
    Guino.

    Shouldn't that be "RIGHTTOLEFT" ?

    It will be done sometime in the next generation.

          Guino, i've sort of discussed this before but will you be adding support to pass keystrokes straight to an embedded app without the OSK popping up? ie configure button on a skin & when you push it it sends a specific keystroke to the embedded app.

          Thanks

            Hmmm, there was a time I could keep up with the updates and understand what did what - need to do some reading I think as I'm getting behind on the features/skins command etc.

            Good work Guino ..... never known a Front End to be as actively updated as Road Runner is, nice to know that the developer is as enthusiastic as its users.

                all these features would be even greater if we had skins to support them is there anyone out there that could edit the brushed skin to have all these new features?

                Also, i think im gonna move to iguidance (MM crashes too much..) , so how would i embed that app in RR? do i have to use that as an external app? thanks guino!!!

                          One of these days the docs will be done (working on them still)

                          But sadly, by the time they are, they'll be outdated since Guino keeps adding more and more functionality

                            This is exactly what I have just done... I'll still improve it to where you actually send full sets of keys to an application with a single keypress.. but for any of this to work, you'll need a skin that can allow you to do that.. right now, it lets you type "blind" into an application embbeded --but you still need a skin with an OSK for applications button..

                              besides the OSK (which needs a skin for it)... searching for mp3s is on its way too right guino?
