Re: special Category example?

Please refer to the Component Reference Section 4.4 roSpringboardScreen:

Void SetDescriptionStyle(String style)
 Set the springboard style for the poster screen. Styles allow the poster screen to look
differently for different types of content or different usage. The following is the list of valid
screen styles:
o “audio”: All tags on audio screen above are substituted with Content Meta-
Data.
o “movie”: All tags on the video screen above are substituted with Content Meta-
Data
o “video”: All tags except <Directors> and <Ratings> are on the video screen
above are replaced with Content Meta-Data.
o “generic”: Only the <Title> and <Description> tags on the video screen above
are replaced with Content Meta-Data.




If you call roSpringboardScreen.SetDesctriptionStyle("movie") you will have all the tags including the Categories (or Genres in the picture) displayed.
