    But have you not noticed, RR does not look consistent with other windows programs.

    To be consistent the new config should look and feel like RR, ie be skinnable or part of RR. Not look like a windows program.

    its not going to be part of RR, just too many settings, while oddly you could do all the settings (i think) with a "rrconfig plugin"
    it would be a MAJOR task, with all the GUI elements and such, and the code to run it..
    you are a good plugin coder, go for it...


    thew new rrconfig, looks close to the old rrconfig

    It would be really easy to make a RRconfig in C#. Just make a class that can represent all your settings, add it as a data source and then drop it on a form, bam all the settings labels and text boxes are there.

    Then you would just need to make your own "serializer" that would output the settings object as an ini file...

    LISTPOS uservar now 1 based (in sync with its label counterpart)... from RR 7/9/2011 onward... Plugin Developers if you used this var, update your code..

    I used it in "RRWebBrowser"
    when RR 8/1/2011 is released, ill released updated plugin
    -Thanks

    Surely it would have been better to bring the label in sync with the uservar.

    It would be easier (more likely) for skin developers and/or end users to change things in the skin rather than plugin authors have to recompile their plugins. Especially as some of the plugin authors don't drop by that much.

    I have been coding for a living for 30+ years. Maybe someday I will switch to C#. For now, I'm happy with Delphi and the results. Regardless of the language, the underlying data structures are more important. In my humble opinion of course.

    Actually, I tend to agree with this. I, for one, do not want to haul around a keyboard and mouse in the car to make changes to the system. Once I get the PC programmed the way I like and settle on the skin I will use, I will most likely never change it or need rrconfig again. However, if I am on the road and feel I do need to make a change, say to the speed volume settings or the day/night gamma, I will want something that I can use easily with just a couple presses of my finger on the screen.

    These are the types of options that should be part of RR, either directly or via a skin for configuring the system. It has been eluded to that the rr.ini can be mostly embedded in a skin. If this is the case, then all of it should be done this way to make it easy to use.

    But if there is to be a standalone rrconfig and it is being done in C#, then the designer needs to read the UXGuide and follow the recommended specification while laying out the controls in visual studio. Again, this goes to the mantra, "if it's worth doing, it's worth doing right."

    nope, you are wrong... LISTPOS the var is VERY NEW, only got introduced in 3/1 release, and prob not many people(plugin developers) ever used it, they still use the OLD label version
    also, other LABEL based commands are 1 bades, like CLDEL;1 would delete the 1st item in the list...
