    In exectbl.ini create a newfunction:

    i.e:

    "DAYNIGHT","DAYNIGHTSKIN||GAMMA"

    then in the menu.skin place the DAYNIGHT where the GAMMA was, haven't tested but should work
    Thanks... I'll give it a try

    Another thing is maybe getting a Network screen for Wifi/BT/cell provider, and being able to connect and disconnect thru dialup (cellphone provider), waddya think?
    I've tried looking for some code to do wifi detection etc but failed so far, I'd love to be able to do a screen for wifi connections. Dialup is easy, I already have a program to display in my skin whether my mobile is connected via GPRS or not and a button to toggle between connected or not.

    Maybe Cirond's WINC would embed

    Before this goes too far down the path... Unless you disagree, It might be an idea to keep the functions of this skin narrowed to the primary functions... I don't know what the best way to determine what those functions should be (especially since I'll only be able to assist with imput like this). I guess we need to find a starting point and the person best suited to make that decision is a skinner or Guino (IMHO).

    Skinning for RR will become easier for it when we arrive at RR 100% per Guino. It seems like we are nearly there now.

    Most functions coming soon will be as plugins only to RR which will mean the main program will stay the same, the biggest problem I think is everyone has different ideas and needs.

    Human nature is to never be satisfied with what you have. to quote some well sung Lyrics... It's not getting what you want, it's wanting what you've got!

    I'm about to go soak up some sun in the vert and squint while looking at my Lilli (I'm so shy).

    Its simply a bit of code that checks for a current dialup connection that makes a label appear in RR thru the RR SDK. The button simply does a sendkey back to the application.

    Will post a pic asap

    I would like to see the wifi status in some kind of RR window. I don't know if it's possible but sometimes it might be usefull.

    in Skin Commands.txt you can find a lot of information and all available options which you might put in a skin.

    Yeah I know about the skin commands.txt but some of it is still mind boggling!

    I'm going to have a look at MSDN to see if there is anything relating to the XP Wifi Status.
