Hey all, I'm having an issue that should be easier than I'm making it, I just for the life of me can't track down the right doc or right pointers to make it happen. Our roku app is being driven by an XML feed from an API. We are laying out the content in a horizontal grid / episodic layout within each category. We want to switch from the horizontal grid to a vertical list layout. We used the example video player project that Roku provides. What changes do we need to make to our XML or the Bright Script file to support the vertical list layout? The view we are after is like the netflix season1/episode1-10; where each episode is played directly from one page, with one poster image... not each episode having a poster image. (Not sure if I just confused everyone, or if that helps) Any one have any pointers?
There are no standard BrightScript template screens that support vertical lists like you describe. For something like that, you'd either need to create a custom screen using roImageCanvas or roScreen, or you'd need to switch to using the newer SceneGraph SDK, which makes custom layouts like that much easier to accomplish.
