    How to LOAD a new skin

    Hello,

    I want to add a skin in RR with all sensor data. I already made a new skin (called sensor.skin) with the skineditor, but my problem is that I can't make a link from the menu to the new skin. How do I do that?

    Thanks for your help!

    make a button on the main menu with the following parameters

    B06,173,077,085,085,"LOAD;sensor.skin;sensor"

    The numbers in the front are the coordinates and size of the button. They will be automatically inserted by the skin programm when you define the button.
    The road is long but we are getting there.

    Thank you! It works when I edit the skin in notepad.

    How do I link the new skin in the skineditor?

    Yes,
    Open Skineditor
    File>Open skin> OPen the skin you want to edit
    Screens> Select the screen where the button will go
    Click add and select "B Button" from the drop list.
    The X and Y coordinates are where the button will go.
    The W and H are width and height of the mapped area that will be button
    THe command sections is where you put your load command.
    Click done, you will see the highlighted button area.
    Double click inside it if you need to adjust its position or height.
    Save Skin
    Reopen RR with that skin. Your button should work fine.

    Thanks,

    My only problem is that I made a skin called sensor.ini, but I can't select it in the load command of the command section. Maybe it is because I copied the meni.skin edited it and renamed it into sensor.skin.

    No, that shouldn't be a problem. BUt if what you say is true, you named it Sensor.INI And not Sensor.Skin?? Make sure you've got it named correctly both in file name and in the statement where you call it. Also, be sure that after each change you make to a skin file, you are saving the skin in the editor AND reloading the skin in RR. It's very simple to overlook this step.

    Sorry I made a mistake, I did call the skin sensor.skin and not sensor.ini. Still I can't select the skin in the skineditor.

    Is it possible to enter a normal tekst in a skin with the skineditor?

    if it is in the skin's folder (together with all the other .skin files) you should see it listed in the menu. IF it is listed and you can't "see" it, you need to go and set the JPG files for that screen (There's an option to edit that -- screen settings I believe) then you should be able to "see" the screen and edit/add objects to it.

    And yes it is certainly possible to edit the skin with simple text. Open word, notepad or wordpad, go to File>Open and select the skin file from the directory.

    It'll open in this format

    @J187, Sorry, but that isn't what I ment. Maybe I didn't explain it correctly. I want to add a 'normal' tekst in a skin. I'm making my own sensor skin. I now added all senson values and now I want to add a short description e.g. FAN speed = 1200 rpm. I added The 1200 rpm, but now I want to 'write' FAN speed in front of it with the skin editor is that possible?

    @guino I have the sensor.skin in the correct directory and I also set the right JPG files far that screen. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. Here are some pics I made how it is 'configurated' now.
