iPhone development cycle
« on: June 02, 2011, 11:25:45 pm »
Is there any way to get a new dash onto an iPhone without going through the upload to site from the Dash Editor then download from site on the iPhone app?

This makes it a very slow and painful development cycle, when you can only do one upload a day (and you have to publicly publish work in progress)
Could you at least allow 2-3 updates a day?

Thanks

Any help on this - maybe the support team missed the original post...

I haven't seen any PMs about this (or any new PMs at all really for the last few weeks).

Email support@palmerperformance.com with a link to this post and I can follow up with you there.

Hi - Can you share this information - I too would like to test my changes on iPhone without uploading to DashXL.net?

They did not respond to any messages sent directly. I have given up on this product.

I still haven't seen any PMs sent directly to me about this, but we do have this feature implemented fully now.

If you connect your phone to iTunes, select your phone in the left bar under "Devices", and then go to the Apps tab. If you scroll down to the bottom you should be a section for documents, with DashCommand listed. If you select DashCommand here, you are able to see the dashxl folder. Putting your dashboards in this dashxl folder will make them visible inside of DashCommand.

Its a little confusing to find sometimes, I can post up screenshots if you are having trouble.

How exactly does one put something in the dashxl folder? iTunes (10.6.1 Mac) will let you highlight it and it will let you transfer it to your computer, but you cannot navigatie into that folder or place anything in it.

zra, iTunes 10 shows an "Add..." button in the bottom right corner of the frame where it displays the folder contents. Pressing this button you should be able to place some stuff in the folder.

We need to add items to a dashxl subfolder, I am not aware of any way to do this yet.

I can add a file to the DashCmd App (BMW Dash Board with a .dxls extension, but This does not show in the app on my iPhone.  When do you think we can do this for non-jailbroken iPhones?

For non-jailbroken devices there is a computer program call iFunbox. You can access the folder and put your dashboards in there. Works great. Mine is not jailbroken and saves me a lot of time. I can test with each new improvement, change I want. I'm sure there are other programs out there.

Hi! This is really easy, as for it's the only way for me to edit my gauges. This is how I do it. I have VMWare with my bootcamp open in fullscreen where I edit my gauge. I save it, and drag it to the desktop of my mac. I open iTunes with my phone plugged in. Click on your phone, then go to apps, and then towards the bottom there is file sharing. Then click on DashCmd. It'll be there jailbroken or not. There's only one folder in there, and that's where all your gauges are. Drag it to your desktop, put your gauge in (if you just fixed a small thing, then you'll be replacing the old gauge) and drag it back in! The update is immediate, no need to restart the app, just select a different gauge, and then your gauge again.

Hope that helped! It's pretty straight forward
