I don't know if this is an isolated problem, or if I'm just crazy, but I ran into a very strange issue today while developing a scene.
I have a scene that is structured like all my others that work just fine. I have my brightscript code embedded into the xml file itself rather than splitting them up. I added some functions for handling button logic to the scene, packaged it up, and deployed it to my local Roku player.
The debugger shows the normal:
------ Compiling dev 'channelname' ------
Once that displays in the debugger there's no other output and the player freezes and doesn't accept remote input, doesn't respond to external control commands; the splash screen for the channel doesn't even display. When I restart the player the Roku logo appears then goes into a black screen. I let it sit for 30 minutes a couple times but the main menu failed to load. I had to do a factory reset to get the player to boot properly again.
After some debugging I narrowed the problem down to the name of one of my button handler functions:
If I change the name of the function the channel runs fine. I thought maybe I had another function somewhere with the same name and that caused some kind of collision during compilation, but I don't.
Anyone have ideas what was happening here? Is there a global built-in function named onSubmitButtonSelected? I tried to see if that was the case but couldn't find any answers.
