  • GPS-Sats with colored bars?

    Hello,

    is it possible to show the sats in bars ( like: ||||||||||) instead of a number?
    Iīm using MM and I integraded the Sats in my RR-Skin.

    are you good with flash? fi so you could make a flash movie that reads the number of satelites and displays x number of bars depending on how many sats are available....

    just an idea

      Hello,

      I can make simple things with flash, but I think thatīs too difficult for me, but nice that it would run, could you give me more tips?

        Well, I dont know flash, but I think this would be the only way of doing it...

        Basically, you would need the flash movie to read a variable from RR (or RR send the variable to the Flash Movie - I'm not sure how it works in RR skins)...

        With that, you then see what number the variable has (0 - 12, which is the number of satelites)...

        maybe you can do 13 frames, 1 for 0 sats, one for 1 sat, one for 2 sats, etc until 12 sats, and have the flash movie go to the frame number from the RR variable?

        it shouldnt be difficult... try PMing one of the authors of flash skins, or just wait until someone who knows flash skinning with RR posts here...

              Great! No I have to search how I can make my own font! Youīre right the problem would be the colors, but for first time I test it.

                    What you could also do is make the bars increase in size.

                    ie have a single dot heght for 1 then add a double dot for 2 etc


                    1 .

                    2 .:

                    3 .: (can't get a 3 dot one but you get the idea)

                            The font thing is very creativebut you'll run into trouble with 10, 11 or 12 (very rare though)...

                            You should talk to DiNASTY about this, he made a CPU Load Meter bar that is very much like what you want.. to change that to work with the number of GPS satellites should be very simple for him.
