Roku is adding new Scene Graph SDK Components to enable more productivity in creating custom layouts of screens.
In the past, developers have been forced to choose between using screen templates with an optimized implementation designed by Roku or writing “custom” screens using the low-level drawing apis of roScreen. Our new Scene Graph components enable designers to quickly create screens using declarative XML and developers to implement the design with the support of higher level objects, layouts, events, and focus management.
The best place to start learning is with the“Scene Graph XML Guide” and “Scene Graph XML Tutorial” sections in our online documentation:http://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/Scene+Graph+XML+Guidehttp://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/Scene+Graph+XML+Tutorial
We’re excited to see how quickly you can implement new designs and look forward to your feedback on improvements we could make.
Please send a private message to RokuShawnS with the subject “beta scene graph serial number” and a body containing serial numbers you’d like to receive the beta firmware.
Please respond to this announcement with any questions or feedback regarding our beta scene graph components.
