    Arrow Skinners Helper and Debugging Tool By:JohnWPB & BlueZX3 [ Updated 12/05/08 ]

    New Version v1.7 12/05/08
    =================
    - Re-Noted: getting indicator status
    - Re-Noted: logging of these clicks: Indicators, *Slider's (name and value(0-65xxxx))
    - Fixed control painting ( was leaving some artifacts )
    - Added "SkinTool_LogOn","SkinTool_LogOff" for turning on/off the live log instantly
    - Fixed bombing issue when using the AutoUpdate feature (now req's the dll to be used)


    Ver 1.5 09/19/08
    =================
    - remember the window locations from the last time that it was ran.
    - copy text from the degub log
    - Auto Update Labels / Variables
    - Ability to re-execute commands directly from the debug log by selecting and right clicking the command in the list
    - Ability to have the debug log in a separate resizable window (As seen in the screen caps below)
    - Remembering of any/all entered items
    - New "Edit Skin" button
    - New Dll file to coincide with the latest RR Build

    This is not an "end user" plugin by any means. It however is a tool to help when creating skins & debugging Road Runner problems. It is a simple way to see variable & label contents, as well as to set them to test skins in Road Runner.

    Instructions:

    Send Command: (The top 3 lines) are for sending commands directly to Road Runner. 3 lines have been provided to keep most used commands you are testing available with just one click.

    Restart RR: Does a complete shut down of Road Runner and re-starts it.

    Reload Skin: will reload the current skin to check any changes that you made.

    Reload Skin +: Same as Reload above, however this will return you to the skin that Road Runner is currently on, and not back to the main menu.

    Variable / Label Radio Buttons: Select either Label or Variable, Type the variable name, without the quotes or dollar signs, and press Get Contents, and the contents will be displayed .
    NOTE: Check marking "Auto Update" will automatically update the information whenever the label / variable changes in RR. The blue indicator you see in the screen capture below blink when the variable / label is set to auto update.

    Minimize RR: Minimizes RR to the task bar.

    Clear: Clears the current log file displayed on the screen (Added by BlueZX3)

    Pause Debugger: This will start and stop the debug text from scrolling automatically when viewing it. (Added by BlueZX3)

    Save: Save the debugging text to a file (Added by BlueZX3)

    Tabs at the top: To switch between the main window and the live debug. On the live debug window, you can also click "Separate Window" to show the live debug in s separate window.

    So nice.

    I could have really used this when I was developing MMI, but it'll definitely help with my new skin.

    Thx!

    Yes, it is skinnable. See the Top menu bar, how it is transparent on my XP System

    Has anyone found any problems or suggestions. This was literally tossed together in about a half hour. I am sure there are something I may have overlooked that could come in handy.

    So far so good.

    Here's a suggestion:
    - List/DL highlighted item properties (postion, DLPATH, TRACKPATH, etc.)
    - More LABEL & VARIABLE slots like the "SEND COMMAND" buttons.

    Seems like you have the real estate for it.

    Ooooh...and how about a status window that displays information like the debug.txt file only it is generated during runtime so you can see what RR is doing?

    I like this...a big time saver...a debug window would be even better, not complaining though, as this is a nice tool.

    I take it that you never seen my live debug win plugin? It makes it a ton easier to see typo's and why something didn't work.

    John asked if the two of these could be combined or at least be able to use the data that mine shows in the bottom of his util.
