No, you can only crop a window, you can't make 2 copies of a window and crop them differently. As I said before, I would crop around the boarder of both boxes and then add an OSK in the middle.
EDIT: Here, look at this one: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/atta...5&d=1155127068
EDIT2: ...and here is a sample PNG with cut-outs: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/show...00&postcount=8
From my previous attempt, I was only able to crop one box. How can we crop two boxes like the ones shown in your example? I tried creating another ini file and load it but still can't crop two boxes at a time. What I mean is, the other day I changed the values in NRGPS.ini.....so I tried create NRGPS1.ini and us another set of values and also add command embed(NRGPS1:500) in nroute.ini, should this work or I did something wrong. BTW whats the 500 for?
If I crop the middle part(red box), and put an OSK there. What about the sides(green box), do I just cover it with image file?
??? You can only crop one box. In my example, I cropped the image, then I put an overlay image that had the red fake-OSK and left the parts that would overlap your green-boxes as transparent.
I really don't get what you are doing. You have to crop the window so that both edit-boxes are visible (not cropped off). Then you make an image the exact same size as your cropped window and make transparent cut-outs where the edit-boxes are.
You only have two files: one for the embedded window, and one for the image overlay.
The 500 is a 500ms time-out after which the program will give-up tryign to embed.
Lets say if I have something like this:
then I can overlay with image shown below right?
If I get it correct, this means I have to do a transparent cut-out at the red boxes. I don't really know how to do transparent cut-out in photoshop. I can make the red boxes area transparent but I am not able to click what is behind the transparent cut-out.
I think you got it now. Why can't you click what is behind the transparent part? You should be able to. My program "cuts a hole" in the SKINlayer whereever there is a fully transparent pixel. Any click in that area should go through the SKINlayer to the app below. The only thing I'm not sure of is if you would be able to see the drop-down (since when it is dropped down, you do have a graphic over it... however, I believe the drop-down is still drawn over the SKINlayer - I just can't say 100% for sure as I haven't tested that).
If the drop-downs don't work, you could hide the drop-down arrow on the right of the box, and then add up/down buttons to your skin that change the drop down. You would do that by running an Auto-It script that selects the drop-down box and the sends the up or down arrow key to it. This method would probably look better anyway.
How to make transparent cut out's in PhotoShop:
1) Open your graphic
2) Select all (Ctrl-A)
3) Copy (Ctrl-C)
4) Click File->New
5) Make sure the background radio box is set to "transparent"
6) Click Ok (the dimentions should already be the same as your image)
7) Paste your image (Ctrl-V)
8) Use the rectangular selection tool to draw a box.
9) Press the delete button on your keyboard.
You just made a "transparent cut-out"!
This is some powerful stuff :nutz:
Many many thanks to you. :)

Then I overlay again and get:
When I click the buttons in the area shown by the red arrows nothing happens, however I am able to pan the green box area.
Did I do the transparent cut-out incorrectly or the way I embed?
It all looks good to me. You should be able to click exactly what you see. Your saying you cannot press any button or drop-down where the cut-outs are? That is very strange. Your images is definatly correct. I don't think it's possible that SKINbedder is intercepting the clicks, they should go right through all my opjects to the embedded form. I'm not sure what to tell you at this point.
If you can't figure it out, post your ini files for both your image overlay and the embedded window (you will have to rename the extention to .txt so the board will let you attach them).
Here are the files. I don really understand what the NRMAP file is for? Seems to be able to embed without it. I noticed when I save the png files, I get this: PNG options none or interlaced.
Folders are like this, inside SB folder:
then inside nRoute folder:
