    Is this correct, or should it show "DAB 1 -> 5" ?
    Click FM 4, channel changes, not sure why? (Does not update the channel lists on the right to empty)
    Click FM 3, channel changes, not sure why? (Does not update the channel lists on the right to empty)
    Click DAB, all normal again JJ
    Thanks for the feedback JJ, dam I thought I had fixed that but streamlining another function exposed it. Anyway Iíve super-glued it now and it looks good. New EXE uploaded.

    Having said that, I guess you are right now concentrating on getting functionality down pat, and rightly so.

    I guess if you are taking requests on visuals, may I ask:

    * the above
    * the ability to change font/font size/font colour in the display section (allows keeping a 'theme' within a front end)
    * make skinning possible for buttons/icons etc (not that there is anything wrong with the prog in its current form, but again, just adds the option visual integration)

    I realise this may be a bit of a long shot as you may need to redo alot of the great work you have already completed - but just my thoughts

    mos
    Hey thanks mos, option for station logo would be easy but you may have to remind me in a week or two as I have some home renovation Iím about to start on.

    Font size and color are also easy to add. Skinning is another story. Your only option with my app at this stage is load the png graphic buttons into Photoshop or equivalent and change them. I believe there is work underway for support in a couple of other FEís but if nothing comes along Iíll see what I can do down the track.

    BTW I had a chance to do a big drive around in the city a few days ago and the Radio looked fantastic and preformed faultlessly. My FE has almost the same color and button theme and it matches the charcoal dash and black centre console. Channel changing DAB-FM selection and even list scrolling and selection are all hardware controlled in my FE, I just love the responsive of this Radio in my system, the old radio module and FW/SW was slow and a kludge compared to this module and SW.

    One bug I found when trying it out is its support/usage of . and , in non-English regions.

    When I select FM, scan to 104,9 so 104,9 is shown in big green letters at the upper left, and drag the 104,9Mhz to a button, the app strips off the ,9 and only 104 is stored. Click on the button and the app initializes the app at 104Mhz, so its not just a display issue.

    In C# I use this in my apps to get the local separator (, or .):
    // Decimal separator on _THIS_ system
    string chrSep = CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture.NumberFormat.NumberDe cimalSeparator;
    Could you modify your app to support countries with , and . swapped around?
    JJ
    Ok I'll see what I can do for that.

    JJ I just modded the app, I added a Font Size slider in Screen Settings. File uploaded.


    UPDATE: Modified the way font resizing is actioned in real time so it's smooth. Also modified to allow font size to be increased larger than the previous preset font version.


    Tip: With setup open, slide the Main app window out from behind the setup screen (horizontal position adjustment slider) and adjust the font size scroll bar for the desired results in the app window.

    UPDATE: Added % indication of Font size change.

    Mickz,
    Wow! That was fast

    GUI: Looks fixed

    Font slider: Works great for me. When at minimum, it shows all text within their borders with no overlapping text.

    Separator: Not working. To enter freq manually I must use . (instead of , on the numeric keypad) else it strips off the ,9 when I press enter.
    When dragging the green freq text to a button, it still strips off the ,9 and when pressing the button, it initializes to 104 and not 104,9 (so not just a display issue)

    Size, date and time of DabFmSa1.exe: 214528 / 12.09.2012 / 17:12 (Assuming I've got the correct one?)

    Modified FM1.txt manually:
    C:\Data\DABFMSa1App>type FM1.txt
    104,9

    104,9

    104.9

    104.9
    --- Cut ---
    Only the first button is shown when the EXE is started, and it still strips off the ,9 (Both the button text and the value)


    JJ

    PS: The , and . issue is not an issue for me as my car pc actually uses english regional setup, but I _think_ most of europe, apart from the UK, have . and , swapped around. Happy to continue to test if you want to fix it.

    It should be possible, the RDS stream is available, and this is one of the features I'm looking into. I'm interested in picking up the DAB EPG also.

    Don't hold your breath though, its not trivial! if I get anywhere I'll post on here of course.

    Don't thank me till I get something working!

    Actually I thought I'd be the only one interested in TAs.

    I'm hoping to be able to provide a dll with some new features like this and some of the other things the module can do.

    Although I don't always feel like coding in the evenings after doing it all day
