Re: Can I use the Scene Graph API for just one screen?

I was using some recursion hacks to get around this, but it appears that the latest 7.1 firmware released yesterday has fixed this issue.

Re: Can I use the Scene Graph API for just one screen?

I already have an roPosterScreen open underneath the roSGScreen. I tried doing that trick as well, with a facade screen always open under everything, but it didn't help. It's almost like closing the roSGScreen is sending a kill signal to the app as a whole.

Can I use the Scene Graph API for just one screen?

Hello, I have an app that uses the roPosterScreen as my main menu and other legacy SDK screens for all others. I want to use the Scene Graph API's EPGGrid for just one screen in my app. I've got the grid working fine by itself, but when I close it and go back to the main menu, the app exits. I'm sho...

Re: [Private Channel] What's On: TV & Movie Listings

Thank you belltown for your insight into this problem. I did not know about that EPGGrid component. It looks great for implementing a TV listings grid. I had looked at the 2D API as well, but it looked like reinventing the wheel to make a simple grid.

Re: Text Wrapping in roImageCanvas

I had thought about doing something like that, but it doesn't take into account the width of the font. Like 30 capital W's versus 30 lower case i's.

I think I'm going to explore the EPGGrid of the scene graph API to implement my project instead of ImageCanvas.

Text Wrapping in roImageCanvas

Hi all, I'm using an roImageCanvas to build a grid of rectangles that will make a grid for TV listings. Basically how I understand it is, you position your text on the screen via a TargetRect with an X, Y position and a length and width. The width of the TargetRect handles the wrapping great. If the...

Re: [Private Channel] What's On: TV & Movie Listings

Belltown, Great channel! I'm working on a project that could use something exactly like this. I saw you mentioned you used the Image Canvas component to build the grid. How did you handle text wrapping and knowing when to put in "..." to truncate a string? If a line does have to be wrapped...
