    Exclamation [Release] SKINbedder 1.0

    Update: Go here: [Release] SKINbedder v2






    SKINbedder 1.0 - beta 1
    -------------------------

    Download: http://www.whipflash.com/vamr/skinbedder_beta1.zip

    Who Made This?
    --------------
    This program was written by Ryan McCormick (RPM_VR4 on MP3Car.com) using Borland Delphi 7.0. Much thanks goes out to Ol33l of MP3Car who gave me his source to iGSkinner which I use as an example to learn how to do this myself.


    What is it?
    -----------
    SKINbedder allows you to crop & skin ANY program. It will create a window with which you can embed any number of other programs to. You can then draw any number of skinned buttons over the window and have the buttons send any key-press to any of the embedded programs.


    How is this different from iGSkinner?
    -------------------------------------
    It doesn't handle NAG screens or GPS re-connection (Yet). It is designed to work with ANY program (including iGuidance, but for now you will have to click OK on the nag-screen yourself with-in 10 seconds). It is my own design from scratch and it has a ton of features I needed for iG as well as my OBD datalogger software.


    How do I use it?
    ----------------
    All settings are made by editing a single INI file. Below is the syntax for the non-obvious settings.


    [MainWindow]
    BackgroundColor=$??????

    Must start with a "$" and then have the HEX codes for the color in BGR format (not RGB... don't ask).
    This will only be visible if none of the "PanelAlign" are set to "Client" and the panels are positioned to reveal part of the main window.


    [WindowsDisplaySettings]
    WindowBorderWidth=?
    TitleBarHeight=?

    These should be set to the settings of your desktop in Display Settings -> Appearance -> Advanced.
    Later you will be able to toggle the nudge settings on and off, but this will allow the boarder and title bar to always be hidden.


    [Programs]
    P0=<path>\<filename>
    P1=<path>\<filename>

    A list of programs to embed. Must start with P0, then P1, then P2, ...


    [Buttons]
    B0=P?
    B1=P?
    B2=P?
    B3=P?

    A list of buttons to show and the program each button will send its key-presses to.


    [Groups]
    G0=B?,B?,B?

    Not used yet. Later you will be able to Hide/Show and Enable/Dissable groups of buttons.


    [P?]
    WindowName= The title of the window to embed.
    PanelAlign= Top, Left, Right, Bottom, Client, or None.
    PanelColor= This will only be visible if the nudge settings reveal part of the panel.
    PanelTop= Only used if Align = None
    PanelLeft= Only used if Align = None
    PanelWidth= Only used if Align = None, Left, or Right
    PanelHeight= Only used if Align = None, Top, or Bottom
    NudgeLeft=
    NudgeRight= All nudge settings affect how the embeded
    NudgeUp= program is displayed on its panel.
    NudgeDown=


    [B?]
    Corner= Window/Panel (W/P) - Top/Bottom (T/B) - Left/Right (L/R) (ie: "WTL")
    X=?
    Y=?
    Command=? Comma-delimited list of keystrokes to send.

    Only Window corner attachment works in beta 1, so use WTL, WTR, WBL, or WBR only. The corner setting is used so that when you re-size the window the buttons X, Y co-ordinates will be relative to the corner specified. This way you can make a button always Up 50 pixels and Right 100 pixels of the lower right corner, no matter how the window is re-sized.

    There will me more documentation and included INI's & Graphics for specific programs in the future. This release was just to get it out the door for the advanced users that want to start making iG skins work and/or skinning other apps. Ol33l and I are working together to merge the both of our codes.

    Yep

    So I hope that we'll be able to overlay one table on top of another for the GPS info (like the SATs Visible, etc).

    Yes, you should be able to place the sats window to align=right and the map window to align=client through the INI. You would have to open the sats window within 10 seconds though. (set the P0=iGuidance.exe & P1=iGuidance.exe, then give P0 & P1 unique WindowNames [one for the iGuidance window and one for the Sats])

    Yep. The SATs window opens automatically anyways if you had it previously opened.
