    Question Skin causes RR to minimise?

    Any idea what would cause this?

    This skin is called from a button with this code:
    "LOAD;EXIT_GPS.skin"

    EXIT_GPS.skin
    Code:
    RoadRunner Skin
    RRScreen "EXIT_GPS" Skin	
    EXIT_GPS_OFF.jpg,EXIT_GPS_OFF.jpg,EXIT_GPS_ON.jpg,EXIT_GPS_DOWN.jpg
     
    [Yes/No/Setup Button]
    B01,176,357,105,86,"CLOSEWINDOW;$gpsname$||MAIN","CLOSE GPS"
    B02,335,353,140,90,"LOAD;GPS_SELECTOR.skin",""
    B02,529,356,105,86,"GPS","ABORT"
    I,194,84,124,133,
    /DISCARDABLE
    
    END
    When the skin is called, road runner just minimizes, and will not do anything unless restarted

    All jpegs are there (at same 800x600 resolution), all matching the names in the skin file, all seems ok when using the skin editor (on/off/down works ok)

    Any ideas?

    E,

    Hmmm starting to think it may be my config, does the same on VirtualPC and my desktop PC.

    The commands all seem to work when using the skin tester (JohnWPB) and load OK

    Can you take a look at the attachment?

    The idea is you click the power button (On External GPS skin), it displays a confirmation skin (EXIT_GPS.skin)

    Yes= Close GPS
    No= Return to GPS screen
    Setup= Calls "GPS_SELECTOR.skin" which will adjust the RR.ini setting

    This is the aftermath of the project you helped with, which was also bugger to code

    Just gave it a quick go.

    The GPS_EXIT skin worked fine.

    However selecting GPS Selector caused RR to disappear totally and I can't get back by using ESC and have to CTRL-ALT-DEL.


    Will have a further play after I have fed family etc. . .

    Cheers E

    Tried it in my car this time, and its the same for me as well.

    Must be something in my skin files thats causing it!



    Also using the restart button on GPS_SELECTOR skin also causes RR to restart OK, but the screen reloads out of alignment, and buttons are off the screen!

    Well I have solved the issue I was having by, changing the 2nd button in the exit screen to:

    B02,335,353,140,90,"exit||LOAD;capture.skin",""

    What does this change? did you rename any of the skins?



    Either that or you were being sarcy!

    Like I said initially, The GPS_EXIT skin worked fine, it was only when I clicked on the GPS selector button in the exit skin that I got an issue.


    I'm wondering if it is anything to do with loading another skin from a skin that was called from a discardable one.

    I will experiment a bit more later today.

    Good point, as always thanks for the help.

    I always use that for non essential skins, so it doesnt keep hogging the ram
