    SendKeys

    Is it possible the sendkeys command was broken in the new version of RR?? Specifically, sendkey buttons to call diferent functions in iGuidance are not working. I though it was only in DFX5 but they don't work in several other skins (DFX4, iDriveT, Void).

    ????????????

    nope, no change to that code...
    sendkeys only works if that window is the ACTIVE window for input
    to me sendkeys blows in all cases, very unreliable...

    in anycase, if you give me an example of real usage, i can test...

    and your going to tell me when you hit say "3d" in dfx5, it doesnt work...
    well it does for me and that seems to be a sendkey as per skintool

    SENDKEY;"{3}","

    infact they all work, BTW i never looked at DFX5's support for IG, NICE!

    I think the issue may be your recent enhanced embedding upgrade

    brings up a point

    this is a better way

    ACTIVATE;IGuidance||SENDKEY;3

    add "ACTIVATE;IGuidance||" infront of all those commands, to ASSURE(well resonably assure) they actually go to IGuidance


    but you know, i can make a better SENDKEY Command...


    ALL THIS DOESNT apply, keep reading...

    it just gets more interesing look at this code

    If (InStr(1, CurSCR, "gps") <> 0 And LCase(GPS_NAME) = "iguidance") Then
    Activate iGhwnd
    SendKeys Key, True
    Else

    that means, DFX5 skin is flawed since its skin name is names "iguidance_wide" no where is "gps" in it...
    so it wont activate the iguance window!

    you know too, i see issues in DFX5 too...
    inconsistency

    external_gps, its going to work fine with the activate code

    but... for 3d it sends out

    B,2,77,72,71,"SENDKEY;"{3}",""

    where in the WIDE (iGuidance_wide.skin)

    B,196,1,99,70,"SENDKEY;3",""


    also see a dupped issue in wide

    DFX5 needs review

    for current code to focuse on IG

    the skin should be called

    iguidance_wide_gps.skin

    NEW COMMAND

    SENDKEYX

    SENDKEYX;keys

    will send key, but 1st will target embedded window on current screen (in our example iguance) skin name not matter!!

    so... SENDKEYX;3

    will send the 3 key to the embedded app (in our case 3 is toggle 3d)

    also!!!

    SENDKEYX;keys;windowname

    you can with one command, activate a window, and then send keys to it (why you need to do this i dont know, but you can)

    simple fix up for now... if you dont get the new rr, and USE THE NEW MUCH IMPROVED sendkeyx is

    fix the naming of the skin file to have _gps in it

    so
    like "IGUIDANCE_WIDE.skin" named "IGUIDANCE_WIDE_GPS.skin"

    then a old sendkey will know that if the name has "gps" in it, and iguidance is the the GPS_NAME it will activate the iguidance window

    OR

    BETTER

    get the new RR *6/21/2012 or newer

    and change sendkey to sendkeyx

    and fix up the skisn does {3} should be just 3 for 3d
