    Regaining focus to RR from iG3

    When I go to the GPS screen, iGuidance gets the focus, which is good for certain iGuidance shortcuts and typing in addresses. How can I make a shortcut to make iGuidance give focus back to RoadRunner using only the keyboard?

    Are you using IGNative?

    And which skin are you using?

    I set a timer in the gps skin to activate RR to bring it back into focus.

    Even w/ ignative=true, rr will lose focus.

    I am using ignative with the Dfx skin. I'd prefer not to have to do a timer, but I wouldn't mind having a button that changes focus if that's at all possible.

    I'm using the wireless ps3 qwerty keyboard.

    When I go to the GPS screen the first time after the software loads up, nothing gets the focus until I click something. If I go to another screen then go back to GPS, iGuidance gets focus. My touchscreen died so I need a way to get back focus to RoadRunner.

    One possibility(I'm not sure how to do this though):

    A program runs in the background(Windows) that starts up with the computer. When "$" is pressed, it presses "ALT+TAB" which will essentially give RoadRunner focus.

    Does anyone know how to do this^?

    Maybe an AutoIt or AutoHotkey script? I'm not sure how to program them.

    FYI:

    Problem solved with AutoHotKey. Here's the script:

    Code:
    $::Send, !{TAB}
    ^^Install AutoHotKey, Put that in an empty notepad file, save it as alttab.ahk, and run alttab.ahk. Now when you press "$," it will do an ALT+TAB, essentially giving RoadRunner focus .



    Now I just need to figure out how to use iGKeys or iGNav.

    I was trying to figure out why focus was such a big deal, but it makes sense now that your touch screen isn't working.

    Yeah. I don't know what's wrong with it and I don't presently have the money to waste on lilliput parts, such as an overlay, hoping they will fix the problem. I got the keyboard with my credit card points. I'm still having trouble getting to the Enter Destination Street First screen of iGuidance with a keypress.

    I'd like to do it a method that's not as dirty as having AutoHotKey click the menus. Anyone have any ideas?

    By the way, it's your fault that I have a computer in my Xterra. I found your thread at Xterra Firma almost a year ago and found this place.
