Changing description style on same screen?

Maybe I'm not doing it correctly - when I set a description style to "video" and create an roSpringboard screen, and then .show() the screen it shows up perfectly fine. If I later, in the same routine, want to redefine the description style to movie, load or stretch the thumbnail to fit, and show() the screen again the thumbnail size/area doesn't change like it should. Is there any way to make this happen without destroying the rospringboard screen and recreating it?

Re: Changing description style on same screen?

Are you calling SetDescriptionStyle() before you call SetContent()? I just tested that here and it seems to work.

Re: Changing description style on same screen?

ok, what I need to do is set the "contenttype" as well as the description style, then it works to stretch/smush/resize the displayed thumbnail.
Thanks
