    Online indicator help...

    I am useing the BMV2 skin and have everything just about set up the way I like it. I have all the buttons saying what I want them to when I push them, I have iGuidance embedded, I changed the location and colors of some of the text. Been working for two days getting everything just the way I want except for one thing.... I can not for the life of me get this damn online indicator to work right.
    I know it has got to be something so simple that I am overlooking it. I have been playing around with the .ini files and am getting nowhere. I do have an "online" jpg in my skin folder, I have this in my menu skin file...
    /, I, x, y, w, h, Code;INDICATORCODES
    I,30,45,150,30,"ONLINE"
    IMG,30,45,130,20,"online.jpg",on
    I01,185,455,30,35,"MUTE:b"

    The "online .jpg" does show up on my menu skin where I told it to, but it never goes away if I disable my internet connection.
    This is the last thing I need to do before my skin is finished and I can put my system in my car. Anybody...........

    hey Chuck, I tried that and now it just flashes all the time. Its not a button. With skin editor I added an "indicator" box below my "date" box. The "img" box is inside of the indicator box. Do I need to modify any other files? Or only the menu file. I do have the lastest version of RR. Did an update with the automatic updater.

    the online indicator isnt perfect and it doesnt test for an "internet" connection.... only for a network connection. That code above is the same i use (in different area of course) and mine works as it should. You did add the indicator "image" to your "on" skin right?

    Sonic, Yea I have indicator image in my skin. I got it working now. Thanks guys!!. It was a stupid mistake on my part. I am testing it on my home pc and I diabled my cable modem to test it. But as you said it checks for network connection!! I was technically still connected, just not to the internet. Once I pulled my network cable out, the "online" image does go away and then return when i plug it back in. Once again, Thanks guys, I knew it was something simple.......

    Could you post your indicator code? Using my wireless card, turning it on makes the online light appear after a little while, but it never shuts off until I restart RR if I then kill the wireless.

    Even when its not over a button? Will this ever be fixed? Blinking would get very annoying...

    i did a little util that pings something (isp dns in my case) every few seconds, and then creates a file if connected and deletes it if the connection is lost. This can be used in conjunction with the exists indicator that can check for a files existance. This will give you a real world idea of whether or not you are actually connected to the internet

    Hey _dopehead_, if you can, I'd like to include that "ping" app in RR's page .. I did try the Ping method in RR but it was just hogging up too much with VB's pseudo-multi-tasking.. so I cut it out.. it's best to have a separate application just to monitor it, like you did..
