    Angry RR and Garmin Trouble

    I am having a hell of time getting garmin to stay on top when embedded in RR.
    I have my window name set to Garmin Mobile PC and have also tried CDP_WND_FIELD
    nothing seems to keep Garmin on top of RR when I press a play button or try to overlay the OSK.
    Wht the hell am I doing wrong...this used to work great...


    Dummy problem.. read last post

    Contrary to other applications, Garmin mobile PC create a new window each time you change screens. So, it means RR probably make the first screen topmost, but if you switch the screen by pressing the settings button for example, a new window handle is created, so RR don't make it topmost. I have seen this problem as I am in the process to disable the exit and minimize button for my own interface I am building and I had to hook the click on these buttons and I have to reapply the hook each time another screen is shown.

    I did have this trouble in the past though. When I made the overlay for the OSK it worked great.
    Is anyone else having this trouble?

    Seriously though, that is the only change to my setup in a long time (rr version change). Probably over a year.

    Now when in the external_gps.skin if I click on music control buttons at the top of the screen GMPC ends up behind RR, but if I go back to the main menu then back to the external GPS screen then it reappears.
    Same with trying to use the overlay plugin. If I try to overlay the OSK on top of GMPC then I lose GMPC.

    are u using the GMPC overy script??? (ElcosMenu.exe)
    that runs outside of rr you know

    why not post some screen shots, since im a bit lost

    like i dont know what "music control buttons at the top of the screen GMPC" really means...

    maybe put a example .skin to gether for me

    you know, i downloaded GMPC setup as trial...
    set GMPC on Carwings overlay works... kinda...
    its a bit buggy... prob needs work
    specially cause it might be looking for roadrunner windows
    and maybe slipping past the compatibilty.ex

    i might need to set it up in skin ur using...
