return to home only shows "retrieving" - fixed

for some reason one of the categories i pushed into the home screen when i exit to go back to the homescreen, it doesnt do anything but say "retrieving"

the other"kids.push" work just fine that i added and when you hit the up button takes you right back to the homescreen

its showing the feed being parsed everything not tossing any errors until i exit out its saying i have orphaned objects.

Re: return to home only shows "retrieving"

Make sure you are doing a setcontentlist to display the content when the category is selected. Also, sometimes you need to force a refresh of the screen, which I do by popping up a onelinedialog and then immediately closing it:

sub refresh()
dialog=Createobject("roOneLineDialog")
dialog.show()
dialog.close()
end sub

screen=preShowHomeScreen("", "")
