skin.ini i think would be best place , then each skinner can use it without crossing over another cmd by another skinner or user.
mind you multiple tasks can now be execute , either by editing your exectbl file and have multi action , or would it be better for the plug to have the ablilty to add extra execute to the same time .
don't know if this would be worth it,just thinking if an outside plugin wants to use this timer func
then it will need to have this feature, say for example
then say reminders plug uses the same timer and the same time it will need to be added to this line in the skin.ini
And as soon as I change from my day skin to my night skin all is lost. I guess I'm a moody person, I'l wake up one day and say "I thilk I'll run BladesEdge skin in my car today". And if the sun is bright and I feel like putting the top down, I'll change to my Daylight skin. Or if I just want to overwhelm my passengers, I'll load up Pure and let them tackle the tiny fonts.

get your point , agreed was'nt thinking , i was being selfish , should of been looking at this as a open timer plug not just skin based , i blame my tirdness lol it is the weekend here , so its party time lol...
but the multi cmd per time i think will be needed,

I am working on tring to do the date part differently, so get/figure-out the format of how the saved info will be saved in, b/c I really don't want to have to go back and fix every where in the code that use/phrase the data too many times!
your the coder blue so you know how its will work best , we just make suggestions
by the looks we are starting to get a format set , and yes must keep it in line with the way rr is getting cleaned up .
Ok, here is revised date picker, No its not an emb flash calender. :)
I like this way/one much better then the other
Both this skin(Menu only) and the dll with what you see here.
Just leave the dll in the skin folder and run the regMe.bat.
The month -/+ works, clicking on a day selects it.
Selecting all but the Day(s) of week btn work...
Let me know if you like.
[Pics and zip removed - now outdated]
just fired this up , i can select the lower buttons and change the month , but i have no days in the calender is blank, sorry
Nice work Blue ZX3!
He is my alarm set screen I added to my skin 11-27-06 all in RR code and TimeExec.dll and all works well.
Just thought I would share and maybe give you some ideas.
That actually did...
New Name for this plugin will be "RRSched"
New and final format(for now) very flexible!
<DATE>;<TIME>;<OCCURANCE>;"<ANY NUMBER OF CMDS, SEP BY "#" >";<Name of skin ( needed/wanted? ) >
Example would be like this:
09/08/08;13:25;O;"SENDMGS;MYAPP;HELLO||AUDIO#DVD#VIDEO"; DFX 4.0
Date = 09/08/08
Time = 1:25 AM
Occ = Once
First Cmd = "SENDMGS;MYAPP;HELLO||AUDIO"
Second Cmd = "DVD"
Third Cmd = "Video"
Which only exec if current skin is DFX 4.0
I just added ind's for each cal day that will ind if there is something sched on that day!
My thinking would be; clicking on a day that contains nothing sched would bring up scn to add something, else if day contains >0 events bring up list of that days events.
Screen Cap of added calendar event ind's
