    Also, i dont know if you caught this already since im using version 3-30, but sometimes when i go to to video browser and video player and then after i finish, i jump back to audio browser/player, the video list goes in my audio playlist, and i lose my mp3 playlist alltogether. i end up having to go back to the audio browser and i have to clear out the video list in there and add mp3 files/folders again. Seen this b4? thanks!

    How do we change the background/font/position on the text in the top bar in Mappoint window (where the lon/lat/speed info is) ? Or is this not possible to do?

    Can not find this in the skin files, is it hardcoded?

    Yes, but you're better of doing it on your own... RR only supports 1 text field per screen right now.. and it is because of OSK support. I don't like the idea of using Text boxes in skinnable Apps so didn't want to promote it... anyway, you can add any object you want.. place them directly in the form and make them visible at showform after you've resized them accordingly in that firstload IF statement. this should show your controls after they've been resized (looks better). You can most definetely create them using skin files, but it is a lot more work as you'll have to make a function to create the objects dynamically and resize them accordingly...

    It was only because I wanted to create myself e-mail/todo app which I could embed within RR but skinned to match RR as well.

    I'll look at it.. never heard it before..

    The base plugin is for PROGRAMMERS that want to make a plugin that runs in/with RR -- without having to mess with RR's main code. This means that those plugins would be optional but would seem like part of RR.

    Right now it is hard coded, but I could allow for making it skinnable.. right now, I was only reproducing the visual effect from MC. I am not sure what you have in mind as to changes, but if you tell me I can see about it.. If there's any skinner that wants to redisign that main page, be my guest.. I'd definitely add extra support for it.. It's just that Mappoint doesn't seem to draw much interest, so the only skin we have right now with full support for it is the BrushMetal I've updated.

    Some ideas I have for plugins which I'm hoping to implement:

    Wireless/Wired Synchronisation

    USB Media Transfer - including transfer of skins, New RR versions and settings. - Guino: any chance of being able to find out the path to RR directly from RR itself?? Only so I can grab the rr.ini entry for the music paths and where to place the skins etc

    Please do. The skin for MapPoint could be so much better. Have you seen how AutoTouch does it?

    More than welcome to do so man.. if you plan to load the OSK you'll need to copy that txt(0) object into frmSkin. Otherwise, you can just add whatever textboxes you want and display them in whatever format/size you want.. if it is just one, you can use RR's code (in loadskin) to do that.. it's just a few extra lines.. the only reason I don't like textboxes in a skinnable app. is because they look ugly as hell for not being transparent.. and making them transparent is a whole lot of code with subclassing and stuff, so not worth it.. I'd rather use a label and make the buttons type text in it. you really just have to handle a few special keys for it to work, and you can move around the & sign to show an underlined cursor..

    No I haven't.. but I'm just not about re-doing the mappoint skin on my own .. graphics is not my thing and takes way too much of my time (since I have to be finding the tools I need)... if anybody is up for skining it, I'll definitely review it..
