roSpringboardScreen Category seperator char

Tue Aug 17, 2010 7:51 pm

On the roSpringboardScreen in movie mode categories are shown at the bottom. 2 categories max.
I have a 3rd category to display. I'd like to just add a string to the categories array as follows "CAT2 * CAT3" but I can't figure out what char to use for * so it matches the generated one.

Chr(183)

That looks like the correct character to me! I was actually needing to know the same thing, so thanks for asking the question, and thanks for answering, Kevin!

OK thanks

I tried this and it prints nothing to the screen

sep = " " + Chr(183) + " "

cat2 + sep + cat3

Hrmm... It works in paragraph text and on the roImageCanvas, but doesn't seem to work in the metadata or breadcrumb...

utf8 is not officially supported. There are a few places where we have made the change, but most strings have not been converted at this point. Sorry that I can't list which have changed and which haven't.... this is constantly evolving.
