    E.

    I am not sure where you are with any updates to your iDrive skin (and I know there is another iDrive skin in the works), but I have a question/request (and I would do it myself but I have no programming/skinning skills). Would you consider embedding DashCommand, a skinnable OBDII software program that can be embedded into RR? I did a little searching on the forum and found some info on DashCommand and Roadrunner where people have successfully embedded the program and skinned the gauges. However, since I use your iDrive skin (both day and night red) I would love to have it skinned for iDrive (I did not see any mention of DashCommand in this thread).

    This page here: http://www.palmerperformance.com/pro.../embedding.php talks about how to embed it.

    This page here: http://www.palmerperformance.com/pro...d/skinning.php talks about how to skin it.

    This page here: http://www.palmerperformance.com/pro...mand/index.php is where you can download the free demo for testing/skinning purposes.

    I don't know if you have a scantool device and I am not sure how much functionality you have with the software when it is not connected to an OBDII scantool device (I have not tried it yet) but I do have an OBDII scantool that I use in my car all the time so I can help you test anything you create for iDrive (and I am sure there are others willing to help as well). Hell, I would even be willing to "pop my cherry" so to speak with skinning (using the new skinning tutorial & software tools now available for RR). However, I would want/need some initial guidance from you, especially in the embedding area and getting the actual skin to work with iDrive since you have the configurator program in it (which is very cool, BTW).

    So what do you think?

    I remember having a look at it when it was first mentioned on theboard, but never really did anything with it.


    At present I am a bit busy with the plugins, but keep meaning to release updated (read with more plugins and programs not design) versions but keep getting distracted.

    However when I get my RRUpd8 out, which should be soon, I hope to release the updated Night Red version, might have a look at dash command as I definitely want to add some ODBII to them.

    Well, since I have something personally to gain here, I would be willing to take a crack at it (skinning and embedding) but I know I know I could use a little "guidance" here and there since I have never embedded or skinned before and your iDrive skin has some unique properties over the other skins which might make using it with iDrive a bit different (i.e. your configurator, etc).

    Just make the size of it 800x516 (if you can change size that is) and then embedding is easy.

    No, the OBD diag one is different (I think), and I didn't actually skin it, just embedded it very basically.

    E.

    I need a little help......

    I practiced, and was successful, at embedding the demo DashCommand program into Carwings using the FAQ section and skin editing tools. I basically renamed a button and used an existing skin to embed DashCommand. For the most part it was pretty easy.

    I tried to do the same thing with your skin by adding a button to the cardata.skin file. I then used the external_gps.skin and gps-full.skin as templates (making copies and renaming them) for the DashCommand skin. When I went to test it, the Car Data screen did not show the additional button I added (and I subsequently couldn't test DashCommand).

    I went back to the cardata.skin file and the code for my button was still there. Any ideas on what I am missing?
