    Help with skin OVER embeded GPS

    I want to have a skin that is alwyas over top of the embeded GPS.

    no matter what values I use for A01, or try to clip it with C01, I cannot get any buttons to be over top of the embeded app, like in the video screen...

    If the external gps screen worked the same as the video player screen, It would make more sense... cause you can always resize the embeded app with skin commands, but you cant bring the buttons in front of it, to cover up the fugly ones...

    I want a skin to load on top of the GPS, so I can cover up the status bar on the bottom, and add the buttons I want.

    The effect of embbeding an application is mainly to always keep it "ON TOP" of RR's skins.. if you can run your application maximized and not embbeded, you can probably control it through the skin (Sendkey), close it by sending ALT-F4 and view it using the Clipping definition... You may be able to run your application maximized sing a shortcut or option in the software.

    How do you embed the Video player and DVD player, and then have controls over top? This is essentially what I want... controls over top of the app... just like is already done on the dvd and video player...

    Those are "special" screens where I have extra code to show/hide the controls and make the controls "always on top" ..

    Bingo...
    I guess I should have posted a request to be able to switch the external GPS into the "special mode" (cept without show/hide, the controls just always up)

    pretty please
