    Cooperation between RR and FD skin

    Hi Guino

    I’m trying to set up FreeDrive to be imbedded in RR.
    I have made skin that embeds FD and on the sides there are button that are used to control FD via the SDK (button like Zoom in – Zoom out – Address …..e.t.c).

    Here is what I’m trying to do.
    I want to press a button, for example “Address”, load a RR screen that will be used for address input and automatically execute the command "SENDMSG;FDSDK;address" so the address screen of FD will come up and embed in the new screen.

    I have tried this sysntax: B01,8,8,78,80,"LOAD;Fdadd_GPS.SKIN||SENDMSG;FDSDK; address"

    This loads the “Fdadd” screen but the address input screen of FD is not embedded in this screen, it is embedded in the previous screen (where FD is embedded”

    I’m trying to do this so I can have different sets of button for each screen in FD thus conserving screen space.

    Do you have any suggestion on this.

    Wish I could help you on this one, but not a clue.

    However, what an awesome looking skin. Will you be releasing this to the public?
    Keep up the good work and hope Guino or someone else can help

    yeah I agree its a good looking skin :-). If you remove the 'info' line from the skin, it will auto remove the streetname underneth, if you make sure you have at least 40 pixels below this in your skin you wont have any problems, you will see what I mean if you load say the map selector option, it overhangs. You dont need to remove it infact, just stick a # in front of it to ignore it. You could then use the sdk labels to give you FDROAD, which is the same info the streetname has. nice work m8

    had a quick think.. what you could do, is clip the skin, which would show FD in the background.. I would advise you clipping the application window anyway when skinning freedrive, it prevernts any flashing.. so somehting like

    A01,2,50,796,380,000,000,000
    C01,2,50,796,380

    For the main skin.. then just
    C01,2,50,796,380
    which would clip the address skin to show freedrive in the background ?

    how does this sound

    Certainly I will release this to the public once it's finished.

    This is what I'm trying to do.

    The buttons on the sides are RR skin button and not FD skin buttons.

    The top screen shows FD embeded in RR. This screen has been implemented and operates perfectly.
    The bottom screen is a photoshop consept on how I would like to make the address selection screen. The buttons on the sides are RR skin button and not FD skin buttons.

    The idea is the press button "1" (address input) on the top screen and load a RR skin file that makes the bottom screen.

    Can this be done ??


    PS
    CDR I tried it with clipping the app window but when on the bottom screen and the window is clipped I can see my desktop. When I return to the main gps screen then I can see the address selection screen.

    the only simple way, I can think of doing this would be in flash, so you can change the buttons, without changing the skin.. maybe guino has some ideas

    Just make the button "1" send somthing like: "SENGMSG;FDSDK;<WHATEVER>||LOAD;FDADDRESS.SKIN;<TE XT TO SPEAK>;<PATH TO FD>;FreeDrive"

    This will have the effect of re-embbeding FreeDrive into the new loaded skin. where you'll have your buttons... you should probably also clip out the emmbeding are of that skin file as well. The Spoken text is optional and the Path to FD can probably be blank.
