    And just to show how much work has been going into getting this skin polished and ready to go, here is a copy/paste from my Yahoo chat window from a few minutes ago. This is from BlueZX3 and I's Yahoo Voice Chat working on more skin stuff

    Call ended: 189 min, 5 sec. (2:37 AM)
    Yahoo! wants your call experience to be top notch.
    Tell us about any issues you had with this call.
    We have been talking most nights this week for this long, if not longer actually.....

    It is a GUI written by BlueZX3 that makes it very easy to add a button by giving the name you want to call it, what command to run when pressed ect.
    for some reason the button editor is not saving the information.
    i click on save and exit and when i open the application again everything is same, no changes.

    Where the "20" is at the end of the line, change it to 25 or 30 to increase the font size for the list.
    thank you! i probably will implement this. should do the trick nicely.

    Are you pressing and holding a menu button on one of the main menu screens, then selecting the new item you added from the app chooser screen that pops up?

    Update

    Ok, here is a screen capture of the now completed startup greeting settings skin:



    In the above example, when the skin started you would hear:

    "Good afternoon John, It's Saturday May 22nd 2009. Please fasten your seat belt."

    The "Good Afternoon" part is dynamic, and will change based on the time of day. Defined phrases are, Good morning, good afternoon and good evening.

    Any portion of the phrase can be turned on or off to make it totally customized.

    For instance, turn off the date, and the name, then tap & change the custom field to "System startup complete" with the Pop-Up On screen keyboard. Then all that will be spoken would be "System startup complete"

    On the previous settings screen (In the background of the above screen capture) you can turn off the spoken greeting all together.

    Now, If this is something that you would like in the car, I HIGHLY suggest getting a good text to speech voice! The ones that come with windows are just plain terrible!

    Have a look at http://www.nextup.com/ for a TON of great voices. Most are around $30 or so. NO, I do not get any commission from them, and it is not in any competition with MP3Car, so I think it is ok to post the above link. It is just one of the best sites I have found to check out the voices. Click on any of the names on that page, to hear a sample of the voices.

    That one is pretty good, but seems garbled to me. When it says" I am a new voice" you can not even understand the word "new", and a few other words like "reading" ect.

    My favorite voice that I have come across is from NeoSpeech. "VW Kate".

    You can here a couple of samples Here: Male Voice, Female Voice. Each one goes for $34.95, and I purchased it from the HomeSeer Home Automation site HERE

    You can go HERE and type your own text and have it spoken.

    Ok, but after clicking save, and then closing it, do you then press and hold a button on the main menu, so you can choose where you want it to be?

    Also, make sure to put the button editor in the skin folder, and run it from there.
