Re: Copy of Brightscript object being created when using assignment operator.

RSG thinks different than Brightscript. dot-access for nodes (i.e. myNode.myField) gets converted to a setValue/getValue call (depending on which side of assignment that is) and these i think always assign composite objects like roAssociativeArray and roArray "by value", in result doing de...

Re: Back key not closing RSG Dialogs

I'd be curious to know the wisdom as well. It did refer to these features as diagnostic tools in the Developer Blog post that announced their availability: https://blog.roku.com/developer/2016/06/21/roku-os-7-2-dev-highlights/ . You wouldn't normally use diagnostic (debugging?) tools in production ...

Re: RAF 2.0: Native integration of ads in RSG apps

Is it possible to play the ads in a smaller window. e.g. we'd have a video node playing content while the user can browse the UI. This works, however once we plug RAF into the mix, it will play the add full screen. We tested using the sample you've provided and it functions the same way. You can se...

Re: RAF 2.0: Native integration of ads in RSG apps

I am integrating RAF for apps that use server side ad insertion. Once I provide the ad data structure to RAF using importAds(), am I then required to manually call fireTrackingEvents() for each beacon event?  No - see at the end of "Requirements for Server Side Ad Insertion" section in th...

Re: Video Screen resize delay after RAF Ad Play

Ok, i tried it on a #2500 (Roku HD) and it there is a 2-3 sec delay if the Back button is pressed right/soon after the ad had finished playing and the main content has resumed. It's repeatedly reproducible within single run of the channel, as far as an ad was just played. Does not seem problem of th...

Re: Check for Previous Installed Version of Channel

When new version is installed and has chance to run, the old one has already been removed. Using `roRegistrySection` is the way to handle this - e.g. say have a key `version` in it, on app launch check what's in it and if older, do whatever upgrade or notification needed. If key does not exist, it's...

Re: How to go back to home screen after displaying deep linking content?

i presume by "home screen" you mean "my app main screen/menu" and not Roku's Home screen.
i see no screen facade in the example above - more details in that direction may help.

Re: base library bslCore.brs

a) Is there a way to get the button-press event before it gets to the "onKeyEvent()" in the component ? one use case for this would be to disable the quick-play (or the remote) so that it won't be possible to press it multiple times Yes - by temporarily setting the input focus on another ...

Re: RAF and ui_resolutions=fhd problem on some devices

There is a 3rd possible workaround i can think of, if really really insisting on designing the channel for FHD only: ⋅ Do not supply the 3rd, optional parameter `view` in showAds() When present, it indicates to RAF to use the native-RSG implementation which currently exhibits the issue. If...

Re: Video Screen resize delay after RAF Ad Play

Hi Blake - is this still happening with the RAF version released last week (2.0.20)? How long is the delay you experience? What rOS version? Does the display mode (SD/HD/FHD) matter? PS. without having tried this on a non-GLES player yet (don't have one handy at home), maybe you can avoid the double...

Re: RAF v2.0 SD bug

A new version (2.0.20) of RAF was released this past week, including a fix for this issue. Give it a try. Thank you, RenoJim - for your detailed bug report, it made reproducing the issue trivial and sped up the fix! On a side note, this was affecting only interactive ad by a specific vendor and when...

Seems your account have fallen into a famed billing enrollment "limbo" state.
