    Trying an alternate way so I only need one button I created a "sendkey" Script with a vbs file extension. It sneds my chosen hotkey in Sp Dialer and works great. How do I get the button to run the script? I have placed the Script called "Connect(vbs) into the Skin folder. Here's what I tried and it didn't work.

    "MyApp49","RunQ;$SKINPATH$\connect.vbs"

    Here is how I made mine work with one button:
    add these lines(or similar) to your exectbl.ini:
    Code:
    "BBCONNECT","RUNq;$RRPATH$\Connect.bat||SETVAR;BBCONNECTED;1||SETIND;!BBCONNECTIONSTATUS;ON"
    "BBDISCONNECT","RUNq;$RRPATH$\Disconnect.bat||SETVAR;BBCONNECTED;0||SETIND;!BBCONNECTIONSTATUS;OFF"
    And your button code would look something like this:
    Code:
    B,271,182,252,65,"BYVAR;BBCONNECTED;BBCONNECT<<BBDISCONNECT",
    I also use an indicator to know when it's connected:
    Code:
    I,239,178,26,24,"!BBCONNECTIONSTATUS:b"
    I just added the icon to menu_on.png
    I know this method may get out of 'sync' because it just toggles, and doesn't actually know the status of the connection... I just don't know how to check to see if the connection was initiated.

    That's a great idea! Thank you. The one advantage I find using this PS Dialer is it does carry status in a way, audible status. I have wav file that says in a females voice "Connection Established, and "Goodbye" for disconnect. If I push to connect and it doesn't for some reaoson you will not here the wav, and if it disconnects for any reason it will say "Goodbye"

    My method might not be the best way but I like it. If only I could get the Script VBS file to run when I push the button. I am missing the right command or something.

    Thanks for the post I am going to write one and try it.

    Also barnyard, how do you get the CPU and other temps to show up as Fahrenheit in the skin? I have it set for "F" in speedfan but it still shows up celcius in RR

    Ok here we go...

    As I said I had wrote a functioning Script VBS file to do what I want. RR was not running it and I am not sure if RR can just run a vbs file yet. I tired converting my vbs file to an exe but even outside of RR the exe did not do anything. (maybe I did something wrong or maybe VBS command as EXE wont run same?)

    I used a BAT file with Cscript command to run my vbs. It works. So I have BAT file Running Cscript, running my VBS scrip, and it works. Only problem is that Cscript flashes for a millisecond on top of the skin and I can't stop it... Was there a better way to do this? Any way to get Cscript to not open visually? Thanks

    You need to put "C2F" after the speedfan label.
    Like this:"SFT0","C2F"

    Yes, you use the Wscript command:

    In the exectbl put the following:

    Code:
    "RunVBScript","RUNQW;wscript.exe" "$SkinPath$\MyScriptName.vbs"
    Then for the button code you use:

    "RunVBScript"

    to actually execute it when pressing the button in the skin.
