roGridScreen + xml ?

Hello,

I was able to modify the VideoPlayer app to load my xml, however I would like to change the showPosterScreen to show a roGridScreen instead of roPosterScreen. I have been struggling to get it to work. Are there any examples that shows how to generate the GridScreen with xml?

Re: roGridScreen + xml ?

Hey Eddy, did you ever get this to work? Sounds like you are trying to do the same thing we're trying to do.

We've got everything working, including hosting content on AWS/Cloudfront, but can't find ANY documentation that actually says how to call the Grid Screen and get it to show instead of the poster screen.

I'm sure it's just because I'm not much of a programmer, but it can't be so difficult that even Roku's own SDK guide doesn't even mention the Grid Screen existing (in the design section). Anyway, if you figured it out we'd really appreciate any tips, it's the only thing stopping us from launching.

Thanks!

The grid screen is fully documented here: http://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/roGridScreen
There are also a couple of sample apps that use the grid screen listed here: http://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/ ... theRokuSDK
And another example that uses the grid screen (as well as other screens) here: https://blog.roku.com/developer/2012/08 ... avigation/
