@petrutms,

to ease things you can use freeware utility nOpen that does exactly what you want: I've uploaded it here.

jwoegerbauer,
I had no idea that Medion devices used an executable named "MainShell.exe." That's a filename used by Mio devices, so the Mio code branch was executed, which included killing the MiniBar. I'll make sure, for Medion devices, that the MiniBar stays running, so that the Medion menu can be exited with that.

petrutms,
I've seen a shorcut creator at the freeware sites, like http://freewareppc.com/

@petrutms,

utility nOpen has 3 buttons: Shortcut, OK and Cancel. I've pointed out to this tool because it really works fine at least at my device. The largest advantage I personally see in using this tool, you can run it as a command-line utility, you can test your entries and if all goes well, save this as a shortcut. BTW: nOpen only depends on AYGSHELL and COREDLL.

I would use "Sub FilesSize" in MioPocket's Unlock.mscr as a template for "how to do something recursively", i.e. search for a file. If you don't have success, let me know it.

petrutms,
MortScript's SelectFile function returns a full path, so I'm guessing that you're not using that function. You should. Simply use...

filePath = SelectFile("Select File", FALSE, "*.*", "Select a file to create a shortcut to...")

A file browser will be displayed and, once you select a file and press OK, the full path to the file will go into the filePath variable. Next, you could do...

folderPath = SelectDirectory("Select Folder", "Select a folder to create the shortcut in...", FilePath(filePath))

...to have the user select the folder to create the shortcut in, then...

WriteFile(folderPath \ FileBase(filePath) & ".lnk", "1#""" & filePath & """")

That should do it. That'll create a shortcut with the same base name as the file (ex. "FileManCE.lnk" if "FileManCE.exe" was selected). Optionally, you could prompt for the shortcut name by using the "Input" function, like so...

shortcutName = Input("Input the name for the shortcut (do not include .lnk)", "Input shortcut name", FALSE, FALSE, FileBase(filePath))

...then replace "FileBase(filePath)" in the "WriteFile" line above with "shortcutName".

@Osprey,

allow a side remark: in case of Medion devices it's surviving importantly to have ST.exe present, because only so owners of such devices have access to GoPal's internal clean-up utility, as the image shows. Possibly it would be great to add in DeviceMenu.mscr after line

#This script brings the original menu ...

the lines

If(RegValueExists("HKLM","GoPal"))
	#kill all instances of ST.exe
	While(ProcExists("ST.exe"))
		Kill("ST.exe")
		Sleep 500
	EndWhile
	#immediately re-start an instance of ST.exe
	Run("\Windows\ST.exe")
	#ST has no window name
	While(NOT ProcExists("ST.exe"))
		Sleep 500
	EndWhile
	hwnd=ActiveWindow()
	#simulate clicking on "o" in term GoPal to get CLEANUP opened
	MouseClick(hwnd, 325, 138)
	Sleep 250
	#done for now
	Exit
EndIf

do you know of the freeware Win32 application MioMap & iGO BMP Tool? With this tool you can compress/decompress .BMP-files used by Miomap and iGO. Download it here. Compressed files opens correctly. This utility may help to save storage space, if this is a concern.

Thanks jw!

Still on my wish list is Bluetooth on Headset. It seems to be new that IVT offers an Evaluation Version For CE5 http://www.bluesoleil.com/products/Default.aspx?TID=12
Description sounds very promising and there is a very good description to install. It is starting without error message, but I don't see the GUI. Could anybody of you guys have a look and help me?

PS
What does Evaluation mean? Somewhere it was mentioned as free.

@Osprey,

in the last weeks I've totally revamped my copy of MioPocket 3.0 Rel.59. Why? Simply answered: to dramatically decrease MioPocket's RAM hunger. Instead of currently about 3,5 MB only about 1,75 MB - that's the half! What I've done in detail among other things?

1) Restructered MioPocket's folder "Skin" as shown with image at right-hand side.
2) Moved the background-images into the appropriate subfolder "Skin\<resolution>\Backgrounds"
2) Removed from the .ICO-files in MioPocket's folder "Icons" the included file-sizes never used ( and put the settled .ICO-files in the appropriate subfolder ).
3) Created in each subfolder of "Skin\<resolution>\Items\<skin>\<item>" at least the 3 files <item>.exe, <item>.ini and SystemInformation.exe, i.e. copied from MioPocket's folder "Skin\Pages" the .INI-files needed to "Skin\<resolution>\<item>".

It's the last action that dramatically improves MioPocket's RAM usage. EDIT: Of course one have to make excessive use of "QuitOnExecute = yes", if a change in "\Items\<skin>\<item>" takes place:

########################################
#
# NAVBAR BUTTONS/ICONS
#
########################################
#Favorites
BITMAPBUTTON
x = 41
y = 0
NewIni = ..\480x272\Items\Windows7Ultimate\Main\Main.exe
Offset = 0
Width = 58
Height = 32
BitmapNormal = ..\Bitmaps\Windows7Ultimate\Tab-Favorites.bmp
BitmapPushed = ..\Bitmaps\Windows7Ultimate\Tab-Favorites-On.bmp
ShutDownAnimation = NoAnimation
QuitOnExecute = yes

#Navigation
BITMAPBUTTON
x = 99
y = 0
NewIni = ..\480x272\Items\Windows7Ultimate\GPS\GPS.exe
Offset = 0
Width = 58
Height = 32
BitmapNormal = ..\Bitmaps\Windows7Ultimate\Tab-Navigation.bmp
BitmapPushed = ..\Bitmaps\Windows7Ultimate\Tab-Navigation-On.bmp
ShutDownAnimation = NoAnimation
QuitOnExecute = yes

BTW: This restructure has a nice side-effect: in case of doing a SD-free-installation you only have to copy those files to <flashdrive> that accord to the device's screen resolution, and the user can, in case of SD-installation, easily delete all those folders that don't relate to the given screen resolution.

I mean you should think about all this.

TODO:
Sqeezing all the background images, for example with "MioMap & iGO BMP Tool", introduced some posts earlier.


@bumbum,

in general "Evaluation" means with such a copy of the software some features are locked. Only after registration (paying) the software does all that you expect.

jwoegerbauer,
I'm sorry to hear that you put in so much work on that. I thought that you were aware that the next release was going to use iPhoneToday. SystemInformation and all of its skins will still be available in it, but I'm done working with them because they're too much of a pain, because of the resolution dependence. iPhoneToday is so much simpler because it's totally resolution independent. Anyone who wants to save disk space (especially for SDfree installation) with the next release can simply delete the new "SystemInformation" folder that contains everything related to SystemInformation. In fact, I plan to also release a smaller version of MioPocket that has only iPhoneToday, no SystemInformation.

Regarding RAM usage, I overhauled some scripts to make R60 use less RAM than before when nav apps are running (where you need the RAM the most). It's a savings of at least 1MB of RAM compared to before, which should be good.

petrutms,
I just ran across a program that says that it's for creating shortcuts. I haven't tried it, so don't know if it's right for what you're doing, but take a look if you're interested:

Hello all,
I recently came across this blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. A lot of this stuff goes over my head. But I will keep visiting this blog very often. And it's nice to be a new part of this very good community!

@Osprey,

you must not have compassion with me. I mainly did the work for me, because my starting point is quite different to yours: I bought my PNA as a navigator, and this should be also further the major task of this device. For me, MioPocket only should be a nice, worthwile add-on.

With my work (I named it GoPalPocket, hope you don't mind this) I fulfilled my vision, that MioPocket equally apart from the bought navigation program Medion GoPal v4.x/ v5.x is implemented at the PNA, that MioPocket is not the dominating factor.


BTW: With "GoPalPocket" I've broken the sometimes obscure conglomerate of programs into 17 categories instead of 4 (herewith "navigation" not counted), namely Backup, Favorites, FileTools, Games, GPS, Graphics, Internet, Multimedia, Network, Office, PIM, Programming, Security, System, Utilities, Web-Utilities, Misc.
And additional I only overtook the best of MioPocket's offer at programs.

@All,

I'm off-home the next 5 weeks, and I don't know whether I ever come back to this thread again. Though being pensioner I accepted a third-party invitement to write (chinese crap) PNA CE 5.0 CORE based "C", "C++" programs that steers cord machines via Bluetooth connection.

Have a nice time.
