multiple selections / checkboxes?

Hi all -

I'm looking to implement a feature in our roku channel where users can select multiple categories and see a list of the intersection (shows that belong to both / all categories selected).
I'm struggling to figure out a way to do this with the UI. Is there any kind of checkbox functionality where users could check off the categories they want?
Short of that, does anyone know of any examples or methods for allowing the user to select multiple categories?

Re: multiple selections / checkboxes?

You could potentially use the list screen and its small icon feature (SDSmallIconUrl and HDSmallIconUrl) to show a checkmark or X next to the selected categories. See this blog post for an example of how to set it on the list screen: http://blog.roku.com/developer/2012/07/ ... st-screen/

Hi Endless,
Can the SDSmallIconUrl and HDSmallIconUrl be positioned to the left instead of the default(right) positon?


Thanks.
