Help with embedding
Following the directions in this sticky, I have been able to embed basic apps such as the Calculator & Notepad. However, I am trying to embed a program that is more of a front end. There are a bunch of "sub programs" that launch in a new window depending on where I click. Is there anyway to keep the new windows embedded as well?
If all the windows have some commonality then maybe.
if they are different then you would need them to have to open in their own screen with their window name in the button code.
what program are you trying to embed?
Its a program called "Glarity Utilities." It serves no purpose for my carPC, but I figure I may run across something similar in the future.
What do you mean by commonality?
A common phrase or name in the title.
The "front end" of the software links to about 25 different programs. Some share the "Glarity" title, but most do not.
Then it's going to be tricky.
Can they be opened with a keyboard shortcut or a command sent to them?
or do they need to be clicked
As far as I know they need to be clicked. However, in the same installation folder as the "Glarity Utilities" are all of the application files for the "sub-programs." I could do each individually and skip using the "Front end" of the program. Its just not as clean.
I just started with the programming aspect of RR and really am starting from a blank slate so I apologize if I come across as a little slow. How do you send commands? Im currently using the launch folder.
this thread explains about embedding apps if not using the Launch screen
Have a good read of the RR FAQ's, some may now be out of date but there is a lot og good info there
for sending commands to applications search for sendkeys
