Interested in seeing how much of your idea can be implemented in RR. Are you planning on using a lot of flash?
I like this a lot.
I will make some changes, I really like the bluetooth, wifi idea!! I am just going to get the base screens down, so everyone can see where I am headed, and be able to make suggestions on the project as a whole. Plus I am getting burned out on the main screen
Oh and the folder is to do a music search, well at least that is the idea.
it is really coming to gether very nicely.
for the square button area, i think it would work just fine to use smaller parts of a image for the active area of the button, the biggest trick to this is getting the rest of the icon to look ok when it doesn't get highlighted.
Well I threw some images into RR today, and overall I am pretty satisfied. One thing I saw, but didn't really get a chance to look into... but when you press a button the rollover wont come back until you hover off then back on. This is not really a big deal since my screen is going to be touch, but I want to fix it for testing, cuz right now I have a mouse, and that's annoying, I may just rid of hover over for the time being. The is quite the setup though, not to bad to program in at all. Pretty simple, I just wish there was a search function or at least the list would respond to typing, oh well scrolling all the way down to VOL isn't that bad I guess I have just become lazy with the Pansonic language I use at work.
being that rr uses squares for button presses, instead of using the whole icon, just use a small portion of each icon that will respond to button presses. for instance, for the internet explorer button, set up a button area just around the 'e', and leave the swoosh that extends past the 'e' alone.
something like this:
this could have been you original idea, i might not have seen it.
What if you were to rotate it and put it like this on the left side? Would that help with the rectangles? Also, this seems to make it flow with the left side limits in my opinion. it doesn't look like an offset circle. JUst my opinion. This is a rough idea, you would obviously have to rotate the icons, and probably reorder them.
Does that make sense? I can try to do a better one if im not being clear. All I had on hand was MS Paint, because real men draw skins in MS Paint. HAHA
