roSearchScreen -> isScreenClosed()

Hi,

Roku ByDefault define Button UP and Back Button(2 and 0) for isScreenClosed() in roSearchScreen.

and there is no method for getting button index which is left side(msg.isButtonInfo()->msg.GetIndex() work for only right side).

In Non-legacy device case it is looking odd search box is closing on Up key also.

please suggest me how i can solve this Or how i can get button index for left side keyboard(for search screen) instead of use isScreenClosed().

Thanks in advance

Re: roSearchScreen -> isScreenClosed()

What you could do is - check the search result.
ie

call your search routine as a function --
1) msg.isListItemSelected()
2) whatever check you use to determine it should pull up the search screen goes here
3) Result=SearchScreen()

Then for your search screen function return a value
Function SearchScreen() As String
If msg.isFullResult()
If LEN(msg.GetMessage())>0 Then Return msg.GetMessage() 'if the search term value is greater than 0 characters, then return the search term to the calling function

And then jumping back up to the calling function,
4) If (Result<>invalid And LEN(Result)>0) Then
display the search results
else
screen was closed with the back, cancel, or up button because the search term was 0 bytes in length
end if


Just a side note - no idea when this will happen but Roku did announce they are dropping support for these older generation 1 boxes - not going to allow new channels to be put into the channel store for them.

Re: roSearchScreen -> isScreenClosed()

Thanks destruk for reply .
Actually i am doing same thing. problem is that - how to catch individual index. suppose
i got 4 suggestion by searchPhrase.Len() > 2 like:
1) delhi
2)mumbai
3)kolkata
4)chennai

how to catch index 1) delhi which is in array 0 position. i want to block up button here.
__________________________________________________________________
In given keyboard by roku there is space key when we press it it gives " " . i want to block it also as validation purpose .
Can you suggest for this.
i am doing :-

if msg.isPartialResult()
searchPhrase = msg.GetMessage()
if (searchPhrase=" ")
screen.SetSearchTerms(history)
screen.SetSearchTermHeaderText(searchHeaderText)
screen.SetClearButtonEnabled(false)

end if
end if

but what about when user press 2 or 3 or 4 ....so on space before character . problem is that it count one character for space also when i do
if searchPhrase.Len() > 2

Thanks

Re: roSearchScreen -> isScreenClosed()

I just mean the cutoff date for supporting old "classic" Rokus has passed now, so we no longer have to worry about them.

Re: roSearchScreen -> isScreenClosed()

Generally Prakesh, you don't want to deal with leading or trailing spaces for search terms. You can use .trim() to remove the leading/trailing spaces.
If all you want is to prevent it from accepting a search term with a leading space from a past history listing, then you can check the left character with this --

if msg.GetMessage().left(1)=" "

or

if result.left(1)=" "

or

result=result.trim()

Depending on what variable line you're working with.

Re: roSearchScreen -> isScreenClosed()

Hi Komag,
Actually i am doing in Roku 2 and Roku 3 version 5.1 and 5.2 .
I just mean the cutoff date for supporting old "classic" Rokus has passed now, so we no longer have to worry about them.

I have also a legacy device 3.1 , is it passed now?
where I can find the complete details about cutoff date for supporting old Rokus?

Thanks Smiley Happy
