  • Can you go back to main menu just by closing an application without a button press?

    Hi Guys,

    I have Dashcommand and use a simple application skin to embed it .

    Dashcommand is a fullscreen application and has its own exit button. Is it possible to just close the application and RideRunner will go back to the main menu somehow? Right now I have it where the application closes, then I have a single button on a black application screen that I press to exit and go back to main menu.

    Well, if it's a full screen application, simply use the RUN command to execute it from the main menu, it should run on top of RR and when you close it, you'll be right at the main menu. If you're running it from a different screen, you can try "RUN;<path>\dashcommand.exe||MAIN" so that it runs it and returns to the main menu (that way when you close it it's already on the main menu).

        i know the post is a little outdate but i'm still interested in this question;
        i have some applications embed that have their exit button, is possible / exist an event that act when the application embed is closed?
        Something like:
        You open a .skin and load an application, when the application is closed then send command (for example back to the last page)

        Is this possible?

        (the trick "RUN;<path>\dashcommand.exe||MAIN" will work only for fullscreen NON embed applications)

          This could very easly be added as a ONxx event. I will add it for the next release....

            I think using RR extended plugin you can do a command for 'on application start' and 'on application end'

              Sweet. I hadn't looked into this much yet as I just installed dashcommand but had noticed it was behaving weird. Anything to help streamline is excellent!

                As dlane2155 pointed out, RRExtended does have that feature, events for when applications startup or close. I wasn't sure if you wanted to go with that, I could have at least mentioned it I guess... It is my plugin after all. Hehehe
