    RR GPS Command Request:

    Command request:

    Hey guino

    Do you think you could add a few more commands for GPS, like GPS1,GPS2 etc, up to 5 just for good measure.

    So when using "GPS3" for example, it would load your gps screen, just like it does when you use "GPS" command, but it would load a different screen.

    So you can have External_GPS, External_GPS2, External_GPS3 etc and not have to put the path to the app in button code.

    This way, whenever a gps request is made, RR looks at what is set in RRConfig for the path and window name, thus making configuration less of a mess, or absolutes as with my skin.

    I tried to make my own commands , and they work when used alone, but if i use multiple commands they nolonger work, but i think the above method would be best and less chance for people make mistakes etc.

    ummm.. I can easily do that... what I don't like is messing with the freakin' RRConfig.. and if I don't mess with it, having the user enter settings for window title/path on RR.INI would be just as easy as entering them in one of the ExecTBL.ini files... I am really tight in time lately, but I'll see what I can do..

    cool, sounds good to me.

    as for RRConfig, arent those settings allready there under GPS for path and window name or are you talking about something else?

    as for being tight on time, dont worry about it, take your time.
