    Been testing this new great feature and I must say this will simplify menu system greatly! No need to hassle with code anymore... if you don't want to hehe.
    Also documentation is more than sufficient.

    Excellent work Mitch as usually.

    Mitch...

    I just started looking into adjusting the Elite2 skin to use this new dynamic menu system. This definitely makes the menu system easy and clean. One thing that Elite2 uses is colored themes... He's got awesome icons in several different colors for each of the menu items. I was unable to get the new system to use a variable to add a specific theme color to the path of the icon....
    An example:

    Old way:
    Code:
    IMG,93,132,100,100,"$usethemeiconpath$\icons\menus\$MENUBUTTONICON01$.png",ALL
    New way:
    Code:
    I,93,132,100,100,"RRMenuItem;1"
    Menu.lst has
    Code:
    AUDIO(mp3s)     = "AUDIO",Music,Icons\menus\MUSIC.png
    I tried making the Menu.lst
    Code:
    AUDIO(mp3s)     = "AUDIO",Music,$usethemeiconpath$\Icons\menus\MUSIC.png
    Where $usethemeiconpath$ is "theme\RED" according to SkinTool, but it didn't work.

    With the April RideRunner version, is it possible to do the themed menu icons?
    If not, I have a couple of suggestions...
    1) process the variables in the icon path... or
    2) let a variable specify the filename of a Menu.lst.... a Menu-Red-Theme.lst

    What do you think?

    thats correct... the path cannot be a variable, it is never processed by engine, since its not skin language
    anyway.. we have a solution

    Ok.... one more feature request.......

    Elite 2 has a nifty feature in it's legacy menu item selection method.... a description for the action. That really makes a nice, easy to use configuration tool.

    Another thing that wasn't totally obvious.... how to clear out a button... I had to add a "Clear Button" menu item option to the menu.lst file. I'm not a huge fan of that method, and I think an image still showed up after I "cleared" the button.

    Thanks Mitch for all your efforts...

    ** New Features RR Build 4/18/2012 **

    please read posts about menu.lst and plugins (if you're a developer)
    there is a new 5th argument (optional) text description, which is avail on "RRMenuItemSelDesc" LABEL during "MenuItemSet.skin"

    i highlighted the NEW Stuff in RED

    Example Menu.list line:
    Code:
    AUDIO(mp3s)     = "AUDIO",MUSIC,Icons\MUSIC.png,,This is the Audio Player
    SKIN LABEL; "RRMenuItemSelDesc"

    Hi Mitch,

    very nice work. I used the APP Choser before and had enough problems with icons showing.
    now its fast and works perfect.

    for my skin...i coded a possibility of popup a menu skin in most themen skins...i had problems to start.
    to live in a language or speak it from time to time makes the different for understanding what you wrote and what you mean.

    all time i thought "RRMenuItem;1" is a variable information and i can use it in every skin i want.
    that the information is fixed by number of the menu.skin, i learn.

    only one thing would be nice for changing.....inside the select function list, the distance between the icon and text should be a little bit more.

    regards GF_ler

    Hey - it's not a complete fix, but should do the trick. Since you can change the size of icon to display in the ilist, you could just edit the icons to have a invisible border on the right. That would give you the extra distance. A little photo-editing and a slight change in the ilist.

    hi sargeants,

    at the moment i go the easier way and put a "_" in front of the text.
    a "space" character isnt possible while rr ignore it in front of text.

    so its looking in this way
