    Have you changed the version of iGuidance?

    It may be the newer versions have different (or not at all) shortcut keys.

    Thanks for confirming. I installed a fresh copy (no mods) of DFX and the buttons still don't work so it's something in the skin. Now i know where to concentrate the troubleshooting.

    I'm surprised that no one asked if you have updated your RR? There was some work done with imbeded windows, and that could have effected the sendkey cmds that are used in those screens possibly... None of those have changed for the last several versions of DFX that I know of..

    You're on the right track (as usual), i'm on 6/1/2012 and the buttons DON'T work in any skin (DFX4, iDrive, Void) so it probably IS in RR itself. I'm going to post in the RR thread and see if i can catch Mitch's attention.

    dfx5 has issues in the skins for IGuidance
    they need a little cleanup

    the sendkeys in bad format

    also, unknow to me, and prob anyone else, if you want to sendkey to ig, the skin must have the letters "gps" in it

    also, sendkey is weak anyway, i have coded a "sendkeyx" which will activate the embedded window 1st, then send the keystrokes

    so... clean up in dfx5 is needed, to use the new command sendkeyx, new rr as of 6/21/2012
    to have it all work with the old rr, fix the skin name for iguance_wide to have "gps" in it
    and fix up the sendkey commands in the skin

    like

    "sendkey;"{3}"

    its just

    "sendkey;3"

    no extra " and no { }

    ofcourse, this works too "activate||sendkey;3"
    but the new sendkeyx handles that all for you
    -Thanks

    It feels like blue and john have thrown in the towel on this, RR seems like such a moving target. I wonder if that's the goal kill it so no one works with it and nisau can close the opensource hole.

    They are probably understandibly burned-out! It's time for us to help each other. "Conspiracy theory" LOL in order to shut down RR open source, all they have to do is shut-it- down! They don't need permission from anybody much less a conspiracy between John, Blue, mitch, gino to slowly kill DFX to in turn have an excuse to kill RR as well..

    And if you hadn't noticed, RR isn't REALLY open source..

    Iguidance fix (temporary)

    To make all the buttons work, add "ACTIVATE;IGuidance||" in front of all the sendkey commands in the external_gps.skin, external_music_gps.skin and iguidance_wide.skin to go from this: "SENDKEY;{down}" to this: "ACTIVATE;IGuidance||SENDKEY;{down}" and so forth..

    Alternatively, copy and replace the files attached into the DFX5 folder. (change .txt to .skin)

    The next release of RR will have new code that will clean-up everything. I will then update the skin files and post them.

    Thanks Mitch, Enforcer and Blue for your help.
