    And That!

    But I agree that everything, if it is present, could be made more compact by fitting everything in a XML file or something like that, with some kind of a Viewer application.

    One car, one XML. Everything in. I'm just thinking loud.
    Yes Please!

    Agree, but you could add a drop-down menu with something like:

    - Auto-scan only (Installation list & DTC’s) (default option when scanning non-MQB/MLB cars)
    - Auto-scan + Adaptation channel maps (default option when using auto-detect or MQB/MLB cars)
    - Auto-scan + Adaptation channel maps + Measuring values
    - Custom scan (Which allows you to customize parameters with checkboxes for ‘Installation list’, ‘Adaptation channels’, DTC’s, ‘Measuring values’, Include/exclude advanced ID info, Check SW version vs current VAG flashfile release (Without a flasher in VCDS this would still be useful for a lot of people, see the amount of topics were jack starts with ‘FW update required’), include/exclude certain controller adresses from scan/admap/measuring values, etc.

    But I agree that everything, if it is present, could be made more compact by fitting everything in a XML file or something like that, with some kind of a Viewer application.

    Good idea. It wouldn’t even bother me if its dropped in the same text file as it is now, because that also guarantees compatibility everywhere.

    As I was bored of massive copy-paste from notepad of codings and following LCode.exe execution bla bla adpmap searching windows explorer apocalypse, I created myself a little Auto-Scan GUI that gives fast-access to LCode for the codings, and opening adpmaps if they are present in the same directory... (execution via context-menu of txt files)



    Something like that, integrated in VCDS. CRM. Customer database. Buzzword madness.

    Cheers
    Nice!

    I assume you're doing that by grabbing the handles to the individual window elements?

    That works until we change something in the UI, which wouldn't do that to intentionally break what you're doing, but we're not going to constrain ourselves to maintain compatibility with your stuff either.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    I'm lacking rhetorical skills in the english language but I'd like to express that I take humbly everything what gets offered by this great application without expecting anything

    In the current state it is just a proof of concept but enriched with the right paradigms and ideas, I see a potential.
