    The only one that might be able to help you on this would be Sonicxtacy02, one of his plugins(fusionbrain) was the same way and he figured out what had to be done to get it to work.

    Just finished my first plugin. It allows you to configure which process and indicator you wish to set by using an xml file.

    Installation:
    =============

    Copy the following files into RoadRunner install folder:
    ProcessIndicators.dll
    ProcessIndicators.xml

    Register Dll:
    -------------
    Open cmd, goto RoadRunner install folder
    C:\> cd "C:\Program Files\Road Runner"
    C:\Program Files\Road Runner>regasm ProcessIndicators.dll /tbl

    Usage:
    ======

    ProcessIndicators.xml
    ---------------------
    <processes refreshrate="xxxx">
    <process name="notepad" indicator="myindicator"/>
    ...
    </processes>

    xxxx = refresh rate to check processes in milliseconds (1000 ms should be fine)
    add as many process items as you want.
    name = process name as seen in process manager (CRTL + ALT + DELETE) without .exe!
    indicator= a name for you indicator to be set

    Skin:
    -----
    X,ProcessIndicators

    IXX,x,y,w,h,"myindicator",...

    Thanks for the compliments although a lot of credit goes to Blue also for creating the base of this.


    Next I want to try to figure out how to set an indicator for when music plays (cd or mp3 file) and when a dvd plays

    Would there be a way I could do this in the ReturnIndicator method ?? checking the status of winamp when it plays a mp3, cd or dvd?

    Cheers

    I have a similar issue. I need someone to come up with some RRCode that sets a variable whenever the FM radio is in use and then switched the labels of TAGARTIST and TAGALBUM to RDSNAME and RDSTEXT, respectively.

    I have no idea where to start on this. Since its primarily for DFX4 skin, I asked JohnWPB and he's doesn't know how to accomplish this either. I know I'll have to substitute my own variables in the skin files aka. MYARTIST and MYALBUM, and read into them from TAGALBUM and TAGARTIST. Then whenever I switch to FM Radio, a variable gets set, RR reads that variable and changes what gets fed to the MYVariable. Another issue is how to capture when to switch back.

    This all really became an issue for me when I realized the RR source doesn't have this type of change state for FM like it does for XM and Sirius. And with the proliferation of RDS and HD radios we need to keep up.

    I'm now able to set an indicator when winamp plays a music file and a different indicator when it plays a video file.

    I used the WACC class for this, which can be found on sourceforge. I had add the 501 command (IS_PLAYING_VIDEO) to this library and had to use winamp 5.x for this since 2.9x does not have the capability to check if playing video or not.

    Only thing missing now is the radio indicator. I don't have any hardware yet, still looking whats the best choice on a USB FM/RDS solutions that works in RoadRunner; (started to read some threads, but they are so looooong )

    EDIT: Gizmo, which fm radio/rds hardware do you use?

    Cheers

    I was just looking at the DFX code and it's doable.

    I'll put together a test case and see how that works out. If it works okay, I'll PM John about it.

    I had actually talked to john a few days about making a ext plugin that would give some default labels that would follow whatever current source that you are listening to.

    That'd be nice. Sure would beat coding the function into RR via skin files...
