    Question How can you keep RR on top in app skins.

    Hi,
    When I run an external app. it is 'on top' eg. if I need to use my remote to change volume,track, etc. it won't work until I left click on the RR part of the screen with my mouse. I've don't a bit of a and found this.... "ACTIVATE;RoadRunner||SENDKEY{RIGHT}||GETFOCUS " which I've put in the APP .SKIN file for each button. But it's having none of it. Can some clever person point out my obvious mistake 'Cause I'm sure I don't know Thanks for your help.
    Cheers,
    Gavin.
    PS I've not got a touchscreen, Latest RR with LS3.0 Beta4 skin, Shuttle Express remote.

    You should not have your remote simulate keys to the CURRENT application, you should tell whatever you're using (Girder etc) to sent the keystrokes or commands to RR ONLY.... otherwise you'll have to deal with the fact that you're trying to control the CURRENT application and not exclusively RR.

    Hi,
    Cheers for that Guino, I use the software that comes with the Shuttle express, it just sends the commands to whatever is active at the time. Should I use Girder aswell then? Any idea what would happen if I booted straight into RR?
    Cheers,
    Gavin.

    girder doesn't have a Shuttle Express plugin yet so i doubt it'll work. You could ask this in the Girder forums.

    Hi,
    Thanks, I'll ask over there. I was hoping it could be done in RR to save running another program, tying up resources. I'm still unsure if booting directly into RR may do the trick, as there won't be anything else for it to send to?
    Cheers,
    Gavin.

    Question Will it????????

    Hi,
    Can I use the new timer command to pull the focus back to RR? Say 10 seconds after I've press the button to start the app, a command brings the focus back to RR?
    Cheers,
