Hi Guys,

Just some progress update.......

1.Changed the angle of the thermometor icon to +- 45 degrees.
2.Advanced menu's buttons are a bit smaller to provide enough space for the reset button array.
3.Home screen Now playing field shows the Filename of the current media and when pressing/clicking on the file name you get taken to   the media remote. Tested it with movies and music.
4.Finished up some more menu's and screens.
5.The darker background doesnt seem to "look" good....... to much of a contrast.

More screen shots after the weekend.

HI guys,

Sorry for the delay..... I know i promised scrrenshot, I got abit caught up in my Day-job......
I've made alot of progress though. Refining some graphics over the next few days and then will post.

For the experts... how can I add the Date to the "Home screen"? Got the time working (that was easy"
My cd cover on the home screen is also not working, but its a minor.

If you see this screen in Designer, you'll see that it is two data grids, side by side. The first grid, is simply styled by the data grid styles, look at the Style/StyleVariation tables. The second table, uses a designobj to specify the cell's style. If you open its designobj, you'll see the designobj #s. If you go to the designobj referenced, you'll see the graphic filename for the cell.

Thom,

Thanx for all your help and advise thus far. I really appreciate it.

I'm just curios..... in HADesigner, when creating a new Bitmap Design_Object, there is an option for "animate"....
Can this be used and if yes would it "animate" the the menus?

Finally got some time again to carry on where I've left off.

Is this toooo dark?
The first two screenshots I've made frame darker. just playing around with some ideas.
Still alot I need to finish on the remote screen.
On the main menu if you click on the cd cover, it takes you to the remote screen.

You're really making some progress now!  Looking good, I don't think it's too dark at all.  Have you played with the idea of...where you have the 'content' area of the screen in a rectangle, maybe stripping off the rectangle to use the full width of the screen and have your default buttons across the top how you have them now and using a similar layout for custom screen buttons across the bottom like a play, stop, ff, rw, etc?  Just a suggestion, it's looking good, keep it going!

The thought of stripping the frame has actually crossed my mind today.
The frame doesnt take up alot of space, but there are a few places where I need that little extra.
I'm playing around with it, but just cant get it to "look right"

At the bottom of the screen I'm going to fit that annoying "status screen" that allways pops up in the top left hand corner.
