Re: Scene Graph node fields valid values

I already tried, but it didn't work :\ so I went looking around if escaping quotes would work and it did, so this was the solution: <MyComp id="comp" messages="[&quot;hi&quot;,&quot;hello&quot;,&quot;world&quot;,&quot;none&quot;]" /> ... which loo...

Re: Scene Graph node fields valid values

This this instead...
<MyComp
  id="comp"
  messages="['hi', 'hello', 'world', 'none']"

Re: Component extends ContentNode with nodearray non-resizable

Only node field types are accessed by reference, so you can't modify a nodearray directly. You need to reference the nodearray locally, modify it, then reset it.

Re: mm_icon_focus_fhd resolution?

The documentation definitely needs to be updated on this.  As EnTerr noted, the mm_icon_xxxs are only used when sideloading or when the channel store cannot be contacted (the _side versions are never  used).  Otherwise, the icons you chose when publishing your channel are used.  Using the documented...

Re: Weird: roInt.ifIntOps vs roInt.ifToStr ?

The ifToStr interface was just added in 7.0 (and a welcome addition, indeed!).  I imagine both interfaces use the same function on roInts, in which case there wouldn't be any double work, just backwards/legacy compatibility.

Re: Localised images not loading

I'm pretty sure you need to set the URI in your Brightscript code.  I don't think localization is automatically supported in the SceneGraph XML.

Re: How to access the roSGScreen Object inside the Scene Graph Components

I second EnTerr's question.  You can walk up the getParent() tree to get to the Scene from a component, but why would you ever need to get access to the roSGScreen?

Re: Escape (UrlEncode) within render thread without using roUrlTransfer?

I'm curious about the use-case.  What is the situation in which you need to URL encode a value in a separate thread from the actual web request?

Re: Poster Nodes not displaying after screensaver

Hey Joel, it's worth noting that I've seen the same behavior after returning from full-screen video playback.  In that case, I get a "failed" loadStatus.  Resetting the uri of the Poster node forces it to reload.

Re: Poster Nodes not displaying after screensaver

If you observe the poster's "loadStatus", do you get a "failed" result?  If so, you could trigger a reload based on that.

Re: Possible to show text with drop shadow?

As far as I'm aware, the Label component doesn't have a drop shadow option, but you can accomplish one by placing two labels on top of each other with the bottom one shifted slightly and a different color.  If you'll be using it a lot, then you may consider creating a custom component.

in the local menu that pops up there would be "cancel subscription" - and since potentially there could be >1 per channel, what happens if that is chosen?

Isn't that option only there for subscription channels, rather than in-channel subscriptions?

Re: rSG field type Array of Dictionaries?!

The only way I've found to do that is to set assocarray as the field type, then add your variant/dynamic array to a single element AA.  Hacky, but...

The preferred/recommended way would be to use ContentNodes instead of AAs.
