    The next release should be a snap to setup and change buttons, colors, skins and on and on.

    I know I've probably said this before, but THIS SKIN IS AMAZING!!!!!

    Had a chance this weekend to run ChuckX through its paces and at every turn I was saying WOW. Its going to take me weeks to open it up and figure out how some of this works, but after seing the light day skin in the car I'm almost ready to abandon my highly modified Mac-V2-Day shin for this. Gotta wait for Spring to put the top down and see what it looks like in direct sunlight.

    Now for some requests:
    1. Have you (or would you) link the two traffic screens, i.e., if you change the traffic city in the text skin it also changes the city in the traffic maps skin and vice versa (probably ony requires a couple extra commands be added to the exectbl.ini). And then incorporate buttons in each to jump to the other.

    2. I'm still wrestling with whether I want tie also tie in the weather screens to the traffic ones, but (and I know you don't travel outside your region much) it wouldn't take much, i.e., I've already written the code, to expand the weather maps to a tiered system of 18 maps with 6 US maps, 6 regional maps, and 6 local doppler radar screens kinda like the 12-06-05 update.

    This is definately the most full featured RR skin, keep up the good work.

    Thanks GizmoQ

    Lots of changes in the one I am working on now

    Tying the 2 traffic things is no big deal but the weather radar thing would be tuff unless you have fixed cities in RR weather to pick from.

    UPDATE 2-19-07
    Totally changed all the setup stuff - Will not have to hunt for them.
    Added Traffic Map Plugin--by moahdib.
    Added display memory so it will remember the last display color in each skin.
    Will need to do a full install and clean out old chucks stuff in rr.ini.
    And Lots more.

    Next update you will be able to change radar maps right from the skin.

    Redid all the autoitís scripts for radar, traffic text and traffic maps/

    No more *.ini files to edit at all in the skin now. All gone

    Radar autoit now

    Code:
    $RR = ObjCreate("RoadRunner.SDK")
    $skinpath=$RR.GetInfo("=$SKINPATH$")
    $RRpath=$RR.GetInfo("=$RRPATH$")
    
    $MAP1=$RR.GetInfo("=$RADARMAP1$")
    $MAP2=$RR.GetInfo("=$RADARMAP2$")
    $MAP3=$RR.GetInfo("=$RADARMAP3$")
    $MAP4=$RR.GetInfo("=$RADARMAP4$")
    $MAP5=$RR.GetInfo("=$RADARMAP5$")
    $MAP6=$RR.GetInfo("=$RADARMAP6$")
    
    InetGet(""&$MAP1&"", ""&$skinpath&"Weather1.jpg", 1)
    InetGet(""&$MAP2&"", ""&$skinpath&"Weather2.jpg", 1)
    InetGet(""&$MAP3&"", ""&$skinpath&"Weather3.jpg", 1)
    InetGet(""&$MAP4&"", ""&$skinpath&"Weather4.jpg", 1)
    InetGet(""&$MAP5&"", ""&$skinpath&"Weather5.jpg", 1)
    InetGet(""&$MAP6&"", ""&$skinpath&"Weather6.jpg", 1)

    O.K. Let's see if I follow this. My skin uses variables in the exectbl.ini that are set in the skin page to select one of 5 autoit programs that output to the "$ww$weather1-6.jpg." Yours sets the variable on the skin page and then runs this one autoit. I have 30 jpgs in my weather subdir and you only have the 6.

    Do you have any time delay with the autoit vs RRCode scripting. With my slow processor and connection, the above would probably bog my system down. What's nice about my way is the recent maps at all levels are immediately available while I wait for the autoit to get current maps and update - makes for quick switching between levels.

    Can't wait to see the RRCode that goes with this.

    Basically this autoit reads the variable I have set in RR and stored in Skin.ini and settable from a radar setup skin.

    RADARMAP1=http://image.weather.com/web/radar/us_dca_closeradar_medium_usen.jpg

    Then downloads the file to the skinpath set in RR

    Then runs a command in RR I have setup to reload all the jpgs on the radar skin.

    And all done without any .ini files or path to set and will only do anything while RR is running.

    Seems just as fast as before – I use a 550mhz pc desktop for this.
