    Exclamation [Release] SKINbedder BETA 2.99999

    Version 2.99999 requires you install AutoIt. Its use is going to be expanded upon in the next version

    New things:
    Fixed window bug
    Now embeds properly
    Separate folders for apps

    For past versions:
    Code:
    SKINbedder 2.5
    -------------------------
    
    
    Who Made This?
    --------------
    This program was written by Ryan McCormick (RPM_VR4 on MP3Car.com) and David Burban (0l33l on MP3Car.com) using Borland Delphi 7.0.  
    
    
    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. iGuidance is also supported.
    
    
    How is this different from iGSkinner?
    -------------------------------------
    Nothing except you have to make your own command set after resume from hibernation/standby.
    You need to install AutoIt (http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/downloads.php)
    
    
    How do I use it?
    ----------------
    All settings are made by editing a single INI file.  Below is the syntax for the non-obvious settings.
    It will change a bit later. Just follow the examples in the INI for now.
    
    
    [MainWindow]
    BackgroundColor=$??????
    Must start with a "$" and then have the HEX codes for the color in BGR format (not RGB...  don't ask).
    
    
    [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, ...
    
    [iG]
    Panel=
    Set which panel is going to embedd iGuidance
    Command=
    Make your own command here for what to do after clicking ok to the No GPS detected warning
    
    
    [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.

    Parameters=		Parameters to send program

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

    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")

    this version has 3 ini files, i think at least one of them shouldnt be there.

    I got
    "Copy of SKINbedder.ini"
    "SKINbedder2.ini"
    and
    "SKINbedder.ini"

    assumeing only SKINbedder2.ini is the only one we need right?

    thanks

    also, i see you are using autoit, sweet program. I actually did the same thing months ago to get rid of the nag screen with an older version of autoit.

    Anyway, for those who are testing on a desktop that dont have a gps mouse change the startup.au3 file to be like this to also kill the no gps popup. It just sends another enter after the warning screen.

    Code:
    ;
    ; AutoIt Version: 3.0
    ;
    
    ;iGuidance
    ;Run("C:\Program Files\iNav\iGuidance\iGuidance.exe", "C:\Program Files\iNav\iGuidance", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
    Run("C:\Program Files\iNav\iGuidance\iGuidance.exe", "C:\Program Files\iNav\iGuidance")
    WinWaitActive("")
    Send("{ENTER}")
    Send("{ENTER}")
    
    ;Run("C:\Documents and Settings\Ryan McCormick\Desktop\TMOlog.exe", "C:\Documents and Settings\Ryan McCormick\Desktop")
    ;WinWaitActive("TechnoMotive Datalogger Command Screen")
    ;ControlClick("TechnoMotive Datalogger Command Screen", "", 1116)
    ;WinWaitActive("Open")
    ;Send("forrest5.tlg{ENTER}")

    seems to be some funkyness with the buttons.



    toggle3dview only works if the view is allready in 2D, if its in 3D view it dosent switch back to 2D

    theres no way to exit out of the EnterDestination screen

    GPS info screen cant be closed

    When i close Skinnbedder, IG does not close

    dosent embed correctly sometimes, i can see the ig title window and drag it around

    I dont know if this is a known issue or not compatable, but i cant get Skinbedder to embed in FP, even when i change the window names etc.


    Thanks

    No, actually the other INIs were for testing. So one of the INIs doesn't have the GPS status like that, but instead it has text.

    SKINbedder.ini is the file.

    Let me hit this,

    NO COMPATIBILITY WITH FP. Something about how FP was programmed.

    Also 3d mode can't go back and forth because there is no button in IG that makes it switch back and forth. Basically, the Sb buttons are accessing the file menu structure. If you look there, you will notice that 2d and 3d are different options. Unless they implement showing and hiding different buttons, you may have to add a 2d button.

    Cool. I'm pretty sure that some people will enjoy it

    Ok..I have just tested this in the car and this is what I have found..

    1. If SB is opened by itself it embeds routis perfect everytime...great
    2. If I open RR and goto GPS, I still get the regular routis screen...yes,i have skinbedder as the window in the RR config...not great..
    3. If I open SB and then like min it...then open RR and goto GPS then it embeds perfect...great...like it has to already be running BEFORE going to the GPS skin

    Thoughts....helpful info...please

    Weird. My RR embeds it perfectly when it opens it. Try changing the window names. Some people have more luck with that for some odd reason.
