    MAde a bit more progres with the DLL. Decided to support all features and there are pages of code to do just to lad the DLL. I have got about hgalf way thorugh this boring stuff now.

    Millsy, I downloaded FreeICE for a look and I must say I am blown away by it! I was able to embed our Skinbedder application on the Navigation button with this code in fi.ini:
    gps=OziEmbedded,C:\skinbedderv3p2\skinbedder.exe,1 Love the radio!

    You also need to put the file buttonclick.wav that is in the main SkinBedder directory in the freeice folder.

    Not sure how to add icons to the FreeIce folder.

    Bugger, FreeICE supports embedding multiple applications on the one screen, which might be interesting, but would need Flash to do it. I might be able to get my hands on a copy, but know nothing about it.

    Cheers

    Rod

    I agree about FI,on my system it just works, no mucking around with lots of different progs,i must admit i am a CDR (the author) fan i was using the Freedom Ultimate skin with roadrunner,visually perfecto just is a touch unstable on my system,if a skin is ever made like FU for FI then that would be the "ULTIMATE"I reckon it would be great to be able to have two progs. on screen at once.I wish i was a bit smarter with the programming side

    Ok

    The Ozi Menu for skinbedder is taking shape and Justin is hoping to do a pre-release version soon, but he might take a bit more as I realised I had left out a menu from the stuff I sent him, so he might not thank me for the extra work this will cause.

    Here is a description of the features proposed. Some of these options have no equivalent menu in Ozie (ie on tool bar only) so they may need to be Assigned to Function keys as noted below by the user as part of the installation.



    Details of each feature are outlined as follows:

    1) Zoom in (+ Key)
    2) Zoom Out (- Key)
    3) Show GPS Fix Data (Control-F)
    4) Moving Map Control
    5) Set Waypoint Marker At Position (Alt-K)
    6) Map Here Menu
    a) Find map to West
    b) Find map to North
    c) Find map at Position
    d) Find map to South
    e) Find Map to East
    7) Track Menu
    a) Show Track Control
    b) Save Track to file
    c) Load Track from file
    d) Show Tracks on Map
    e) Clear Track 1 (no menu option, assign F12 to Other - Track 1 Quick Clear)
    8) Show Distance and Bearing display (no menu Option Assign F11 to View - Distance Display)
    9) Waypoint Menu
    a) Show waypoint Control
    b) Save waypoint to File
    c) Load Waypoints From File
    d) Show Distance between Waypoints
    e) Show Waypoints on Map
    f) Future addition- Show Navigation Control (Control_N) put on the Waypoint Menu as you can select a waypoint on the map to navigate to next.
    10) Route Menu
    a) Show Route Editor (Alt R)
    b) Load Routes from File
    c) Save Routes to File
    d) Show Routes (Control-R)
    11) Hide Menu
    a) Hide Waypoint
    b) Hide Event
    c) Hide Feature
    d) Hide Comment
    e) Hide all of above
    12) Unhide Menu
    a) Unhide Waypoint
    b) Unhide event
    c) Unhide feature
    d) Unhide Comment
    e) Unhide All of above
    [INDENT]13) Function Key menu User to assign their own function keys under File Menu
    a) Press Fn2
    b) Press Fn3
    c) Press Fn4
    d) Press Fn5
    e) Press Fn6

    From here, the Menu (f may be added and perhaps is swpped with 8 so the add Waypoint marker stays at the top level but is close to the waypoint menu. If there are features Justin can't get, some features may be removed or disabled.

    Let us hear your feedback.

    Cheers

    Rod

    You know what I mean

    I worked out how to add an Oze menu to FreeICE and knocked up an icon for it.



    Download the picture and
    Put the icon in C:\FreeICE\skins\default\icons

    Add these lines to skin.ini inthe C:\FreeICE\skins\default folder

    Code:
    &MENU10=OZI;Ozi;icons/oze.png&
    OZI=OziEmbedded,C:\skinbedderv3p2\SKINbedder.exe,0
    Well actually, modify the first line as there is already an entry for MENU10 there. and append the last line to skin.ini.

    Maybe not, what works on my laptop with FI is not working on my car PC... Can't add a whole folder(s) to the play list!

    Hi guys

    I'm sorry to say that there hasn't been any progress in the last couple of weeks... I hope to get onto this again on the weekend and next week. I've got another couple of huge weeks at work coming up so if I don't get it happening next week, we'll all be waiting another month.

    By the way, I spent last weekend on a boys trip out in Vic. Mt Buangor near Beaufort. Great weather, heaps of grog and good driving (that doesn't really fit together does it!)

    @Rod

    I've finally got some time to work on the skin (Wife's in bed still )

    For the track menu, I have 2 options for saving tracks:
    1. use "Log to file" and have this button start a new log (my preference)
    2. operate save to file - track in Ozi

    Do you think we need to put both options on?

    I use "log to file" option in ozi so my movements are always recorded as long as Ozi is running. When I go out for a weekend, I would simply start a new log file before leaving home, then forget about it till I get home again. The whole camping/4wd trip is then recorded in one file.
