Modifying the Separator Panel Skin

NITRO has two screens: a Main screen and a Sub screen.
These two screens are physically separated and are not one continuous panel.

ensata has a Separator Panel that goes between the Main and Sub screens to recreate this effect.
The Panel has a Skin Interface that the user can freely change.

If ensata is run right after installation, ensata/skins/default_skin.bmp will be read and displayed.
The method for changing the skin is described below.

  1. First, create the skin. The image must be in 24-bit color Windows BMP format and have an image width of 256 pixels.
    There are no restrictions on image height, but we recommend 100 pixels.
    Please create an image meeting these conditions using an appropriate graphics program.

  2. Copy the image created in Step 1 to the ensata/skins folder.

  3. Execute the most recent version of ensata.exe and then close it.
    You must perform the following operations while ensata is closed (not running).

  4. Open the ensata.ini file that was created in ensata/Release with an appropriate text editor.
    Under the [reference path] section, there is a line that reads skin=\skins\default_skin.bmp. Change default_skin.bmp to the name of the file you copied in Step 2. Save ensata.ini.
    Caution: The path name is relative to the ensata folder!
    Caution: If there is no skin=\skins\default_skin.bmp item, please obtain the newest ensata.exe version.

  5. When you next run ensata.exe, the Separator Panel should be changed.
    Caution: If an image that does not meet the conditions described above is used, the Separator Panel will appear as a grey strip.

Hiding the Separator Panel

The separator panel can get in the way when you want to increase the size of the display panel during debugging, or when you want to maximize the dual-screen display while in an expanded ensata display. In this case, make sure that "Hide Separator Panel" is checked on the pop-up menu. The separator panel will be hidden as soon as "Hide Separator Panel" is checked.
