I am trying to create a PanelSet with multiple panels (3 in total) where 3rd panel is replaced with a new panel when something in 2nd panel changes. Something similar to the behavior mentioned in the PanelSet docs
in the Child Management
section. Quoting the docs
If any panel contains a list or grid, the typical usage is that when the list or grid panel is on the left, each list/grid item creates a different panel on the right. Typically, the list or grid itemFocused and itemUnfocused fiitemUnfocused[/font][/color]itemFocused [/font][/color]field changes, it will create a new panel for the newly focused list or grid item, and call replaceChild() to cause the old panel to be replaced by the new one.
The problem is in the last line, according to which replaceChild()
should replace the child with new panel, but it does not, instead new panel is appended to the panelSet and old panel keeps displaying on the screen.
Here is my method that displays 3rd panel when something changes in the 2nd panel.
if not m.top.panelSet.isGoingBack
selectedSubSetting = m.subSettingsPanel.list.content.getChild(m.subSettingsPanel.list.itemFocused).title
m.oldPanel = m.panel
if selectedSubSetting = "Subtitles"
? "In Subtitles Detail Panel"
m.panel = CreateObject("roSGNode", "subtitlesdetailpanel")
m.panel.value = true
[size=85][font=Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif] [/font][/size]
else if selectedSubSetting = "News Feed"
? "In NewsFeed Detail Panel"
m.panel = CreateObject("roSGNode", "newsfeeddetailpanel")
m.panel.selectedId = 1
if m.oldPanel <> invalid
lastPanelIndex = m.top.panelSet.getChildCount() - 1
m.oldPanel.visible = false
m.panel = invalid
m.oldPanel = invalid
Am I doing something wrong? If yes, then what is the correct way to replace the child panels in a panel set?
