    But these are all simple ones, the media one is not so simple...

    yea best of luck with that one, i used vb over 5 years ago, whats worrying is im better with autoit! tho i will send a donation your way when your done

    To monitor the press of a key (f2) to trigger an indicator like your using in the example you made for me, I was thinking of creating a seperate timer with something like this to trigger it

    Code:
    If KeyCode = vbKeyF2 Then Timer2.Enabled = True
    is this the best way?

    Well, I'm like just the oppsite, I know AI fairly good now(~4yrs), and when switching between the two constantly is a big PITA! That and VB's pickyness about adding two strings together if they are not both of string type...

    Both JohnWPB & I will be demoing the Media plugin at todays meets...

    Can't really answer that as I haven't gotton that far into VB yet...but I would think that something along those lines should work ok?

    Any chance making this available to all?

    maybe put all the application names in rr.ini that uses the plugin to set an indicator for the respective application?

    I know I could really use this as a quick check to see if xport.exe is running, browsecovers.exe, etc. since I run RR as a shell.

    Not that you don't have enough on your plate already.

    Ya, and I've just been handed another project by John...

    That could be done, I'd just have to make it more dynamic for number of programs and matching indicators...

    The version blue done with the 3 indicators works superb, always handy to know if programs are loaded without having to check!

    Thanks again for the great work!

    Bit off subject now, but with all the new releases of GPS software (Garmin, IGO, Sygic etc) i have to edit the RRconfig to adjust GPS.

    I want to create a skin to set the GPS application from a list (in a RR skin), so it would have to replace the settings from the RR.ini file prior to the "GPS" button being pressed from menu.skin. then every time the "GPS" code is called it loads the set GPS app.

    Is a plugin the best way? or would an autoit script be better?

    Cheers

    RR has a built in function to bring up a menu when you hit "GPS" so you can select from a menu of GPS apps.

    in rr.ini
    gpsmode=3

    this will bring up GPS_MENU.skin

    That won't help in this case as it brings up a menu with only the built in options.

    ie Mappoint, MapMonkey and external.

    Jonessc want's to select between different external ones.
