Cristian, thanks for the quick reply.

I've successfully installed mgmaps-signed.jad (generic v1.38.01) to the J9 Virtual Machine Runtime. But I can't select Stored Maps in Map Browsing Settings, with message "Input Error: Filesystem storage is not supported on this phone". I have set the Storage Path to be "C:\Documents and Settings\hchan\My Documents\GMaps\MGMapsCache" (I have tried both "\" and "/"). In the emulator Permission Interaction, I have also selected "If Mobile GMaps wants read access to your file system, prompt me ... Always allowed. Never prompt again (blanket)".

Does the generic application not support Stored Maps? Or do I need to set up something else on the laptop?

See http://www.mgmaps.com/winset/#14... You need to get that library (it's mirrored on http://www.mgmaps.com/weme and install it the Midp2 folders.

The storage path uses '/' as separator, you can use the "Browse..." option to find MGMapsCache.

b8two and Cristian, many thanks for the instant responses. Stored Maps are now working on the emulator. Very Happy

Regards,

Cristian, Can you please add a Window title to appear on the Midlet Window. I am trying to embed MGMAPS within another application, but it doesn't work because the Window Name is blank.

Yeah, I suspect it needs the title to be set, I'll add that. Meanwhile, you can try to search by window class or something like that.

Ok.. I am using a 3rd party CarPC front end application to embed .. This app doesnt have the capability to search by window class.

Another thing I noticed is that the Menu labels and other stuff disappear if the window size is increased beyond 400 X 432 or whatever. Is it a problem with the IBM J9 emulator?

This is a bug with the J9 emulator, I noticed that 400x432 is about the maximum size supported.

I have managed to create a working front end skin for MGMaps, using Skinbedder (http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/skinbedder/)

Check it out Very Happy

Nice, what emulators can it be used with (or what have you tested it with)?

I have tested it on IBM J9 emulator. The key mapping is a bit of trial and error.. # and * dont work for zoom, but some other keys worked. I will post the code here.

Actually, you should be able to skin any emulator, provided the emulator window has a window name which is constant.

Don't the up/down arrows work for zoom? Can you post the software that needs to be installed too?

Attaching the skinbedder skin here.

1. MGMax.ini needs to be changed to point to the ( StartUp=Run(C:\J9\bin\MGMax.lnk) ) to the correct shortcut.
2. The shortcut has the parameters to directly run the MGMaps midlet ( C:\J9\bin\emulator.exe -Xjam:run=1)
3. Run by clicking on skinbedder.exe file

I dont have the exit button. You can add one by just changing the Keymap.png file and adding an entry in Keymap.ini file.
