    its wierd, the first time I commented out the window class, it suddenly worked, but I tried to click something and the radio shark, shifted inside the container to a point where it was unsuable. So I killed it, right click close in the taskbar... and it hasn't embedded again...

    maybe it didn't embed the first time, I'm not sure... looked like it did... but in any case its not working

    edit:

    I did this... and it seems to embed intermittently:
    Code:
    [Scripts]
    ;This is the startup script that tells SKINbedder what to run, embed, and skin with.
    StartUp=Run(E:\progra~1\griffi~1\radioSHARK\radioshark.exe),Embed(radioSHARK:250),OnTop(False),Embed(radioSHARK:250)

    Ok. Here's some tips:

    1) Do not set OnTop after embedding. For some reason it kills embeded apps. I think OnTop is false by default, but you may want to move your OnTop(False) to the beginning of the startup= line.

    2) If it take RadioShark more that 250ms to display, it will not work due to your time-out. Try increasing the :250 value and/or add a wait(100) or greater before even attempting to embed.

    3) You don't need to embed it twice .


    BTW: Questions welcome... it's nice to see someone doing something with it. I will try to have a new release out soon with a completed iGuidance skin as well.

    yeah, i've been messing with it since my last post.. I need to have the embed set to 500-1000 in order for it to grab it right. I left it at 1000 and it catches it 90% of the time. Now I'm working on a skin

    Nice! I'm guessing that the problem is a combination of a slow HD and the graphic dependability of the program you're skinning.

    yeah, there are alot of factors involved. With 1000 tho, I think under normal loading conditions its fine. I may bump it upto 1500 to keep it safe, but that's prolly unnecessary.

    I'm gonna make 2-3 skins for this. I'm currenctly torn between centrafuse and road runner... both have their plusses and minuses.

    first I'm making a red centrafuse skin... then I will make a generic skin that will work rr/cf and then eventually a blue cf skin that visually works with stock centrafuse - I think... at least thats what I'm planning to do, lol.

    Actually, there is nothing wrong with using a very big number... as soon as it gets the window it will continue. If you set it to "0" it will wait forever and not continue until it gets the window.

    The purpose of the time-out is #1) so that the user doesn't have to end-task SKINbedder if the window class/title never shows up, and #2) so that I can tell the iG skin to load GPS Info & Route Info if they are auto-shown on start-up, but give-up if they are not.

    oh wow... if it set it to 0, it works 100% !!!

    also - I have to use skinbedder_NOEX otherwise my skin tends to flicker...

    I'm trying to skin and I'm a little confused... lets say I have controls_left.ini

    is controls_left.png the background? if I don't have a controls_left.png it gives me an error...

    Code:
    [controls_left]
    ButtonUpImage=menu_up.png
    ButtonDownImage=menu_down.png
    does that define generic up and down images for the whole file?

    Code:
    ;Text can be overlaid in the center of the Rect.
    Font=xirod
    Size=14
    Style=
    Text=preset+
    this doesn't seem to do much... what is this supposed to do?

    hmmm actually, let me give u all the info and maybe u can just tell me what's wrong:

    1) here is my code for controls_left.ini which is lanched at startup

    Code:
    [controls_left]
    ButtonUpImage=menu_up.png
    ButtonDownImage=menu_down.png
    
    TopBorder=
    LeftBorder=0
    RightBorder=
    BottomBorder=
    
    Actions=presetplus,mute,presetminus
    
    
    
    
    
    ;OnClick and will occure only if there is not a button in that area.
    OnClick=BringToFront(radioshark)
    ;OnDrag can be set to MoveWindow, CloseWindow, or left blank
    OnDrag=
    OnClose=Exit(SKINbedder)
    
    [presetplus]
    Top=23
    Bottom=83
    Left=0
    Right=122
    ;If OnPressUp and OnPressDown both have values, then the button will "toggle"
    OnPressDown=
    OnPressUp=Play(ButtonClick.wav),focus(radioshark),Send(left)
    
    [mute]
    Top=121
    Bottom=181
    Left=0
    Right=122
    ;If OnPressUp and OnPressDown both have values, then the button will "toggle"
    OnPressDown=
    OnPressUp=Play(ButtonClick.wav),focus(radioshark),Send(space)
    
    [presetminus]
    Top=219
    Bottom=279
    Left=0
    Right=122
    ;If OnPressUp and OnPressDown both have values, then the button will "toggle"
    OnPressDown=
    OnPressUp=Play(ButtonClick.wav),focus(radioshark),Send(right)
    next: here are the images I am using

    controls_left.png AND menu_up.png - http://www.dapcwiz.com/misc/sbrs/menu_up.png

    menu_down.png -
    http://www.dapcwiz.com/misc/sbrs/menu_down.png

    now, if when I load this setup it looks like this:



    when I click something it looks like this:



    after the click, it looks like this:



    also, if I alt-tab out to a different app and back, it goes back to the onload visual. All this is with skinbedder_NOEX, with jsut skinbedder everything gets super flickery when I try to click something.
