DashXL Editor Tutorial?
« on: October 20, 2009, 12:02:55 am »
So what is this DashXL editor thing. Is there a tutorial somewhere? How do we use it? Do we need to buy some software before we can make a dashboard?

The DashXL Editor is our editor for making custom dashboards. It is very versatile, and you can make the dashboard look almost any way you want. You do not need to buy any other software before using it, you simply need to download the SkinXL Editor here:

The SkinXL Editor allows you to make skin sets. A skin set is a collection of dashboards. You can add buttons or any number of things to switch between dashboards in a skin set. The SkinXL Editor includes the DashXL Editor, and will open the DashXL Editor when you click "Edit Dashboard". Here is a link to the help files on the DashXL Editor:

If you have any other questions, let me know. I would suggest downloading some skin sets from this site to look at as examples.

So, sorry. Noob here.  :-[

I downloaded a dash board and changed the background color, so I kind of feel pro, you know.

What are the dashboards actually used for? Do you require some software to actually make them work? Like moving dials and what not?

You need to have DashCommand and an OBD-II interface to make the gauges move. You can get both from our online store, here:
