    Post Help

    Hey Guys

    I need some help from some existing OziExplorer users...

    What features are people wanting skinned?

    So far, I'm doing basic Zoom In, Zoom Out, GPS Data (not fully skinned), Load Map, Save Track.

    Thumbs up Ozi

    Here's another screenie of saving track data to a new file...

    If anyone wants a copy of the skin so far, drop me a PM with an email address which will take 1.2Mb

    Cheers
    Justin.

    You may want to cover up the Save/Cancel buttons in that dialog so people don't hit them by mistake. I'm sure you already know that you have to use your skin buttons for Save/Cancel in order to issue the Close([Window]) command or the window container will remain open even after the save dialog exits.

    Actually you could make a PNG that overlays the entire dialog box and is just transparent for the save in box, main box, and filename box. Then you can get rid of the gray background, make your own text, and make your own buttons for back, up dir, new folder, etc.

    Hi RPM

    I actually tried covering up the save and cancel buttons but the dialog appeared over the png... I have no idea why except that I know ozi brings all dialogs forward when you focus any part of it.

    Do you have any thoughts on this?

    Put the skin in the "OpenDialog" folder and make sure to embed() it first, then loadskin(). You may want to add a delay like this:

    Embed(Open),Wait(1000),LoadSkin(Open:Overlay)

    That might work. If what you say is right though, as soon as you focus(open) it might pull the dialog in front of the skin. Maybe I can make a StayOnTop command for the skins... eventually.

    Awesome work, Bugger, cheers for sending us the file.

    I'll set it up in the car pc later on and go for a bit of a drive and see if I can think of anything else to add.

    One thing that I use a lot when out in the bush is the navigation control, but it sucks how it reduces the size of the map, it would be cool if somehow you could have the info overlayed at the top of the screen, ie speed and distance/heading to next waypoint. But I'd imagine that would be pretty difficult to implement without access to the Ozi API.

    Anyway well done mate, it's great to be finally able to have a touch screen friendly ozi

    Cool Navigation

    Hey Sub, can you give me a quick run down of how you use the navigation? I haven't used it before but once I understand how someone uses it, I'll make the skin fit with the use.

    I'll clean up the skin when I get a little feedback.

    Cheers

    Navigation

    It allows to you navigate along a route or to a waypoint, basically you select the route or waypoint you want to navigate to and it brings up a control (Ctrl + N) simlar to the MM control showing you distance and heading to that waypoint, it also draws a line from your current position to the waypoint. Handy for finding those hill climbs in places where the tracks don't show up on the maps
