    I'm salivating over here.

    As for including the gas cost in $/mile -- why not have two labels, one with, one without?

    Edit:

    OOH! One more thing. Not sure if you have this already, but would it be possible to have an indicator that fires whenever you get within a certain range on ANY of the maintenance items. It could be configurable, so say you have it turn on if you're 50 miles or less away from needing any kind of service (based on your list items). I'm thinking of this as something to stick on the menu skin to tell you to check something on the maintenace skin...

    other than me having no other space for 2 more labels on MY personal skin.. there's nothing wrong with having 2 labels i guess

    right now theres no indicator.. there's a popup style menu screen that will run once per day to inform you your maintenance item is due. The popup shows:
    -if maintenance mileage is 80% or more of your mileage interval
    -if 80% or more of the time interval is exceeded

    I could easily add indicators that will do the same thing i spose. Is once a day too much? It COULD be user-settable i guess.. but at this point there's only 2 "settings" that are all set within road runner(Odometer reading and timer interval). Adding a bunch more settings would require the old fashion way of adding/editing the .ini file... and i'd like to stray away from that if possible.

    No one says that you have to use ALL the labels. This would give people the choice.

    Maybe instead of making it user settable have an OK command that makes it go away for that day, and an IGNORE command that makes it go away until the next maintenance item is due, for when you don't want to be bothered daily about your windshield wipers.

    welp... soon as i figure out why my slider (which is skinned into the "greyed" area next to the CL) is FUBAR and throw together a big *** text file i should have a beta ready.



    the beta will have everything working EXCEPT the pop up screen. I'm considering not even having a pop-up screen because its implementation is messy at best. Plus if a user wanted to include a pop-up skin they could use a combination of RRExtended with a BYIND command basically. Instead there will be indicator code that can be placed on any screen that will throw the "yellow" warning image or the "red" warning image based on a maintenance item exceeding its range.

    This is pretty cool.

    Maybe I missed it while reading the thread but how is the data stored? Just a flat CSV file on disk?

    I'm wondering about snapping the maintenance log every once in a while and merging the contents into a spreadsheet on my desktop machine.

    data is saved via 2 .ini files. Here's the first dealing with the maintenance

    Code:
    [Main]
    TotalDistance=50123.091162624
    LastDate=7/7/2009
    WaypointMiles= From 29.44149;-81.185204 to 29.444689;-81.183953 is 0.23 miles
    FirstRun=1
    [MileageInterval]
    1LastDoneMiles=50001
    2LastDoneMiles=50003
    [TimeInterval]
    1TimeCount=72
    2TimeCount=72
    [MaintenanceItems]
    Maintenance1=Oil Change;5000;180;22.50;use 5w-30
    Maintenance2=Air Filter;12000;365;17.50;Check Cabin Filter
    and here's the second dealing with fuel

    Code:
    6/26/2009@50050@2.89@10
    6/26/2009@50000@2.89@10
    6/26/2009@49700@2.99@10
    6/26/2009@49400@2.99@10
    6/26/2009@49100@2.49@10
    6/26/2009@48800@2.49@10
    6/26/2009@48500@2.49@10
    6/26/2009@48200@2.89@10
    for maintenance i'm not saving every time anything was done... just the most recent event and how far you are away from it. I suppose i could add an export command that would create a single .csv for all events. You could add the export command to the maintenance reset or add fuel buttons if u wanted it done automatically.

    I think it would be nice to keep a log of all the maintenance done on the vehicle.

    Now..... I know ANOTHER request! LOL. Being this keeps track of all scheduled maintenance, it would be nice to be able to key in unscheduled maintenance.

    Just a few fields to fill in to keep track. Something like:

    Repair Done, Mileage, Cost. You could key in "Replaced water pump, 52,000 miles, $220.07

    This requires no calculation whatsoever, and is basically just OSKtoVar stuff, so would be ultra easy to add.

    I also can not wait to give this one a try, it looks like you have outdone yourself sonic!

    how would you like to handle the repair items. A separate CL and skin? Its easily doable i'd just like some feedback from a skinners perspective of how to handle it. Would you like the cost of the repair item to factor into the total cost per mile? It probably should.

    Nows the time to get these ideas in fellas i'm on a 2 week vacation soon and i'd like to have SOMETHING out for you guys to play with before then
