Re: Convert to Channel Store

Yes, but how do you NOT charge for existing customers ? The channel was a one time purchase.

BusySpinner

I created a BusySpinner in BS and repeatedly called a TASK to build up a scroll-able screen.There could be a large number of entries, so I call the TASK for multiple groups.I started with a group of 200 but it looks like the spinner hangs until the TASK completes. Lowered it to a group of 20, just s...

SceneGraph Bug

Some text labels are not displayed. I created a scroll-able list that fills the screen in a TASK and then in brightscript, I insert addition lines dynamically. Everything looks good except the new lines label text is not rendered. Each line has 1 to four images with a text field. The images are disp...

Convert to Channel Store

I have an existing channel with paid subscribers. How do I convert them over to Roku's payment system without charging them again ?
Is there a way to tell Roku that they have already paid ?

External Fonts

How can you specify Bold, Italics and Underline with an external font ? Before, a font was defined by a string with fields for these attributes.

Re: Task XML Blocks

Anyone have an idea what "waitRelease", "syncRelease" and "sleepRelease " in the Task node are used for ?

Re: Task XML Blocks

I think I have it.
If you trigger the Task with the observed field, it will run synchronously. That is the main activity will block until the task completes.
if you set parameters in the node and then set the control to "run", it spawns a new thread and the main activity continues.

Re: Task XML Blocks

I thought a TASK was like a fork, new activity. What I have is, the main.brs routine triggers the TASK node. The TASK executes BUT the main doesn't get control back until the TASK completes. You can this by the displays I provided. Main  0 before Task in =  0 Task exit after 100 milliseconds Main  0...

Task XML Blocks

I assumed that the TASK which is spawned would be asynchronous. But that doesn't seem to be the case. It looks like it is blocking ????? Code in MAIN.BRS    t = m.scene.findNode("mytask")    for i=0 to 5 ? "Main " i " before"       t.Input = { data:i } ? "Main &quo...

Re: Task subroutine

This isn't true. Here is a call to XR() which fails. It is defined in the main.brs code Current Function: 018:  Sub Activate() 019:*    XR(100) 020:     x = m.top.Input.data 021:  ? "Task in = " x 022:     sleep(100) 023:  ? "Task exit after 100 milliseconds" Function Call Operat...

GetChannelClientId

What is the difference of using GetChannelClientId() verses GetDeviceUniqueId() which returns the box SN ? They are both unique to the box and can't be reset. I don't have many clients but this change causes quite a headache with me and my existing users. How can I relate the caller to my database o...
