Poster-list progress indicators

Is there some trick to getting the progress indicators to work? I can see them, but there is never a bar there. The closest I see to documentation is this non-official site: http://www.instanttvchannel.com/roku/progbar , but that is presumably for their little app builder. Do I have to tell it to update? (I already set a "length" on the metadata)

The progress bars are mentioned here but not how to get them to work.

I believe you just have to set Length and BookmarkPosition in the content metadata.

Oh cool. I wasn't aware of BookmarkPosition....does that do anything else? I just use regWrite()/regRead() to tell where I left off for the sake of having a "resume" button.

The only other thing it does is it acts like PlayStart and sets the start of playback.

You still need to use the registry to store the playback time for your videos since metadata objects (like all objects) don't persist when your channel exits. When you create a metadata object, you should copy the saved playback time from the registry to BookmarkPosition.

Ahh ok I guess I've never seen it because we insert ads and stuff so gotta handle all that a bit more manually.

Thanks for your help!
