  • Destinator

    i want to make a skin for destinator pn/6 and cant get it to embed in skinbedder! i managed to get iguidance embedded with the window-name "iguidance". The window-name of desti pn/6 is "destinator", but it wont embed. Can anyone give me a hint or as anyone tried yet...iam not familiar with skinbedder yet.
    How do i get the class name ....i tried with winspector and it says something like "afx:10000000:0" under class....could that be the classname???

    if you dont know what destinator pn/6 looks like.....look here:

    you can get it from centrafuse if you want to try and help me....
    Thx

    Edit: it embeds standalone perfectly in Roadrunner...so it should work with skinbedder....

    God that is ugly! Why would you want D6 if you have iG?

    Anyway... you can just leave the class blank and it will work. If you use the iGuidance class (intellinav or something like that) or if you use the afx: thing, it won't work.

    Also, are you sure it is just "destinator"? RR will embed partial matches, but Sb won't. Make sure you have the full title and leave the class blank. I use AutoIt window tool to find that info.

      thx for the answer....i will try it with the autoit-window tool ...perhaps its better...
      Iam using desti6 because its not "ugly" like you said....and here in europe we got no version 3 for iguidance....but iam testing various gps-prox to see whats best!

      Edit: iguidance v.1.2.1 is ugly

        Found it: i didnt wait till destinator started....a "wait(500)" before "embed()"did it!
        Now it works perfect.

              hey RPM,
              Does Skinbedder support SendMsgs?? This would be cool to control RR from within a fullscreen navigation! I didnt see it in Questions-Thread so i asume there isnt! Did somebody make a Autoit-Script to manage that?? Also it would be a nice feature for Skinbedder!
              Thx

              Edit:
              Made a AutoIT-script for SendMsg and can control RR now....solution found !
              Another Question: When i make new images in *.png format with AdobePhotoshop Skinbedder always crashes with the message:
              ---------------------------
              SKINbedder
              ---------------------------
              Access violation at address 004615E8 in module 'SKINbedder.exe'. Read of address 00000000.
              ---------------------------
              OK
              ---------------------------
              But if i edit existing images from BBIG with Photoshop and then save in *.png format it works!
              What the hell iam doing wrong??? i use RGB mode 24Bit!
              Would be nice if someone can help me....
              Thx

                I had the same problem with PNG created with MS Paint when Iwas doing some basic testing... My solution was to make the PNG with Photoshop... Sorry I can't help.

                  I have noticed that too. It seems to always be fine with PS7 on one of my machines, but with PS CS, sometimes it causes that error. If you open the PNG in PS, copy all, do file->new, then paste, then save over the old one it always fixes it.

                  Please tell me if you figure out the problem. It is very frustrating

                      hi,
                      i am working on a desti skin, too, and i encountered a problem.
                      can anyone help we with the transparency of buttons?
                      i really like the iguidance skin and read all the inis but i dont get the clue. if i choose a transparent color in the map skin i can kill this color out of the map. and the alpha blend dims the map. alright. but how do i get the skins themelves transparent? i added the transparent and alpha lines into the buttons' inis but this doesnt change anything.
                      so please, how did u get your buttons transparent?
                      thanx
                      j.


                      oh, i forgot to mention:
                      i have the same .png problem. ms paint and psp produce "wrong" pngs. i managed to create working pngs with (don't laugh !) "ms picture it". i was very glad when i found that program on my father's computer and its pngs were accepted by skinbedder.

                        Just make them transparent. PNGs support transparancy.

                          thanx, maybe i am not an expert, but how can i make them transparent ? is there a special color to be defined ? i can't imagine that.
                          j.

                          here's a link to my skin. when i find the time i'll translate the readme to english.

                            No, not a special color... PNG's support an 8-bit transparency mask. Each pixel is 32-bits... 8-bits of R, G, B, and Alpha.

                            In photoshop do file->new. One of the background options is transparent. If you choose transparent, you will see a white/gray checker board. You can then add graphics, but the background will be transparent. You can save it as a PNG and preserve the transparency.

                            SKINbedder works fine with full transparency, but if you do a partial-transparent alpha-blend, it will slow SKINbedder down, plus the image behind the partially-transparent area will not update unless the PNG is redrawn.

                              thank you very much. i didn't know that you can provide transparency directly to a png, i was looking in the skinbedder inis. so stupid. all i need is transparent pngs so far. this shouldn't cause problems to skinbedder. thanx again.
