enforcer i try you code but when select open the notepad , but the recipe info dont open , i think what the other option is make one .skin for each recipe , and when select open the skin , what do you think , but if make each recipe with a skin , what command can use for when select a recipe open your skin ?
let me make the skin i post
What are the names of the individual receipe text files?
And are they listed in recipe.txt with the .txt extension?
my wife has about 50 recipes , so , i try to make a skin for each recipes and so long write , ufffffffffff , make 50 skin so long... i write the recipe with command label on the skin , but is so long write all this
i need find a way what i want add that recipes.txt with each name , and i think in the future if my wife want add more recipe find the way ease for me .....
now i have a RECIPES.txt , the name of recipe , show fine in the list popup menu ,but if i make a skin for each recipe , now i need make 50 .skin , and need add to exectbl.ini the 50 commands for open each skin , uffffffffffff , that is a problem ......
if i find any way some like that a reader what use android for read the book , and only add the recipe with the extension of the reader and open the reader and select the recipe , but i dont know if that is possible make with windows ..
the idea is has a folder with the picture and recipes , when select one , open .... i make the background like the book .. i use the same for all recipes only change the texto
other think if is possible make somethink how a (name of recipe).ini , with the recipe inside and when open , show on .png skin
This would need a plugin.
You can still do it with notepad, but you won't be able to get any fancy formtting.
Maybe you could use wordpad. (or even word)
To do it without the plugin your receipe.txt file would need to list the item description and the filename/locationof the txt file that contans the receipe.
Chilli Con Carne,Chilliconcarne.txt
Then you would use listdesc (2nd entry from the CL) to get the filename and swap that with listtext in my previous code example.
What you are doing is a good idea, I have been meaninfg to do something like it for my missus, but never got around to it.
There was a plugin discussed but it didn't get off the round by the looks of things.
hi , i try to make with notepad , but for me dont work , when open , only open work and dont show the recipe ...
the best idea is with a plugin , very similar a the post what show me , i dont want save or print , only show , the idea is make the recipe in the home computer and copy to RR pc via usbdrive , the RR pc , and have in the kitchen wall , so for my wife see the recipe directly , dont need print .. only two areas one for ingredients and the other for directions and add the picture
i find this web with a recipe plugin maybe can help
if you want make something similar for your wife , now is the moment jjaja ,
other think i find on internet a notepad.swf , for write is fine and leave any message , but i add to RR but only write with outside osk , how i can use the RR osk ?, let me post here the flash
