    Base Plugin Questions

    Will there be a FAQ for the Base Plugin?

    How can we use it in order to skin our own applications?

    I have made an app for HVAC and some more stuff... It can communicate with RR and MM fine!! But my only problem right now is skinning!

    Use the Base Skinnable App to skin your own programs using the same skin format as RR. Open the Visual Basic App in Visual Basic - all the code is commented so no FAQ required really.

    I've already whecked the code.. The problem is that I am not too keen in VB!! I had to learn some in order to write my app!!

    Any more help would be really appreciated, although I will check it more carefully!!

    There really isn't much you need to do with the base plugin:

    -Design your skin
    -Define your buttons/labels in a .skin file
    -Open the Base PLugin
    -Name your project in frmCOM (as the Comments tells you to)
    -Add any button codes from your skin/software in the select statement of the EXEC function
    -Add any label codes from your skin/software in the select statement of the LabelInfo function

    That's about it for a simple application... And to be clear, the plugin you make can be used in RR or stand alone..

    Man, sorry, but did you even look ?

    Please don't make any software available, without looking over at least the modules of the software..

    This is what you find in the 'Exec' function:

    '************************************
    '* Commands NOT used for navigation *
    '************************************
    Case "mycommand1"
    'Add here any custom commands..

    Case "mycommand2"
    'Add here any custom commands..

    Label codes are defined in the 'labelinfo' function somewhat like the buttons..

    I tried to have indicators (both RR and for my app)...
    I've copied pasted some code from RR source code to the base plugin.. (GetIndicator function).... But NO luck!!
    Should there be another way?
