    Phone button to bring Phoco in front of RR

    Hi guys,

    I want to run RR and Phoco seperate as there are more features available with Phoco as a stand alone.

    All I need is when I push the Phone button in RR the already running but hidden Phoco pops up.

    I looked at the commands in the RR skin editor but cant figure it out.

    I think if you just set a RUN command it will pull the already open PhoneControl to the fore.

    What happens when you are in RR and a call comes in. Will the phoneco popup show? Also how do you switch back to RR?

    Have been trying this out myself and have the problem that the popup is not shown above.

    Any suggestions ?

    Just need to find a way to push the Phone button in a RR skin and Phoco goes in front of RR to make a call. You can minimize phoco after you are done. There is a setting in Phoco for hidden when not in use and when it first starts up.

    Phoco will show when a call comes in no problems without the popup button

    This command should run phoco and also bring it to front, remember to include the quotes.

    "RUN;C:\Program Files\PhoneControl.NET\PhoneCtl.NET.exe"

    also, since you guys are talking about this, how do you get rid of that button that shows up when you minimize phoco?

    Thanks liquid It is working .... sort of I don't think Phoco likes being handled this way. As long as you do not minimize Phoco you are ok. But once you do, it will not maximize again. I have asked Zorro if it is possible to create a button on the Phoco screen that will replace the minimize button in Phoco and add a Run=C:\programs\RoadRunner\Roadrunner.exe command to the button. .

    But the code is right. Thanks again!

    Out of curiosity, what enhancements are you getting out of doing it this away? If you run it remotely/embedded from RR what are the downsides??

    I have the single BT connection problem with Phoco/RR on a Motorola type phone but the rest of it is working fairly well.

    The TCP/IP remote calls on port 17xx can slow things down a bit on the CarPC when connected to a full LAN/WAN network and Internet.

    If you have Phoco running and want to use the Phone for a DUN, then that causes problems.
