    they have to flash if they're INSIDE a button.. or the button image will overwrite it.

    That could be fixed by drawing them last, couldn't it?

    no, because everytime you move the mouse in/out of a button it redraws it over the indicator.. You'd have to make a function check ALL indicators in the skin to check if one of them is within the area being updated and if so, redraw the indicator.. I didn't do it because it would add a lot of code for something so insignificant (considering blinking indicators do work).

    I have generic timers partially working in RR. I just need a way to determine when a form is reshown in order to reset their timed out state.

    Guino - any hints on how I detect that?

    An example skin line is:
    TIMER01,5,"LOAD;menu.skin"

    the showform method is called whenever a form is called, but you'll have to monitor (somehow) if you hide/show the form afterwards..

    I think I was seeing cases where Frm.Visible was being set to True but ShowForm was not being called. I'm not sure what scenario I was testing when I saw that since ShowForm seems to being hit in all the cases I currently care about.

    The only place I do that is when autohiding the controls for video/dvd/mappoint.
    Other than that, all forms (exept frmMPT and frmMP) are loaded with the LOAD command through the skins which calls showform.

    Yep. I'm using it as a temporary background so my experimental layout doesn't look completely ugly as I try it out in the car.

    I've been meaning to ask you what the tiled background image is since I've been staring at it a lot recently and keep wondering.

    I realized that the case I was struggling with earlier was the directory list user control - not the skin form itself. There isn't an event / function that always gets called whenever the DL usercontrol is re-shown. I worked around that one by doing the fix up I needed to do after forcing a SELECT command (needed to change the current path after the command executed) by using a timer.
