    With the applied ExportProvider for FrodoPlayer it'll also make you a INI file with all information you need to run it in FP (hopefully )

    thank you for the answer, but i've again some difficult.

    This is the procedure I've used:

    1. I've installed PhoneCtl
    2. I've extracted the Vdesigner.zip files into "...\PhoneControl.NET" directory
    3. I've registered the VDFrodoPlayer.dll
    4. I've launched the PhoneCtlDesigner in this way "PhoneCtlDesigner.exe -Other=FrodoPlayer"
    5. I've designed my skin
    6. I've saved my project into a "myskin.xml" file
    7. I've used the "Export skin" function
    8. Into "VisualDesigner Export" form I've choosed
    provider: FrodoPlayer
    picture format: jpg
    9. The created files were:
    myskin_down.jpg
    myskin_empty.jpg
    myskin_on.jpg
    myskin_off.jpg
    myskin.xml

    In this way no .ini files were produced, can you help me to solve the problem?


    bye,

    luigi.

    So far, you did everything right.
    There is one setting you might have not done yet:
    If you select (click) the background, you'll see a AdditionalInfo in the property grid.
    Click the [...] button and add the following:
    Section=Main
    Autor="--you--"
    Created= -- date --

    If this is still not producing the myskin.ini, please let me know.

    No one's laughing at you.

    Open a new command line window on T:\Programme\PhoneControl.NET then enter
    regsvr32 VDFrodoPlayer.dll


    There's no way yet to convert a INI into the VD format. If you want to edit an existing skin, you have to remake it using the original background picture files.
    For the main screen you could use the XML file I've created for testing.

    Hi,

    Thank you,

    but I donīt know how to open a new command line in T:\..., I think I donīt understand what you mean.
    Another problem is that your XML-file is for RoadRunner, so I donīt have the commands for FrodoPlayer. When I use the XML for PhoneControl I have not all commands, for example GPS!
