  • RR won't get focus back Grrrr.

    I am sooo close to getting my IMageviewer skinned with buttons etc. The ONLY problem I am having is that when I click a button like "next" code = "sendkey;%{N}||Getfocus" RR will not take focus back from my pic viewer! Is there anything I can do? I'm the orignal author of the pic viewer, so is there someway with VB I can help the situation?

    Wait a minute, I think I already solved a similar problem once before by using a sendkey for alt-tab to give focus back... I forgot. I'm gonna try when I get home. I'll post the results for future reference.

      I've been playing around with a VB.NET app that can talk with RR, and I found that often you need to send the FOCUS command multiple times to get it to regain focus.
      eg. "AUDIO||GETFOCUS||GETFOCUS"

      Also, maybe it's case-sensitive too (not sure on that though).

        Multiple times? That's extremely weird. I'll gladly give it a try, thanks.

          You can also just use the VB command from your pic viewer to re-activate RR... something like below should work:

          appactivate "RoadRunner"

              Guino, AppActivate works like a charm! Why couldn't they have put that in my guide book? Thank you very much!

                Couldnt RR just be fixed so that GETFOCUS works 100%? would make it much easier

                Sending "MAIN||GETFOCUS" never works for me, not even if I throw a few more GETFOCUS's in the command. AUDIO, DVD, etc work fine, just not MAIN.

                  I don't think any commands are case sensitive, guino passes the commands in the code as Lcase.

                    The command works fine, but depending on the APPLICATION it will obtain focus and the application will steal it back after the GETFOCUS has already been executed.. so it will work with some but not with all -- there's just no way to know when the app is done trying to steal the focus from RR so it can't really be made bullet proof...

                      Try "Main||Activate;RoadRunner" I think that worked for me before. Also if you are switching between 2 windows, you can send a sendkey command for alt-tab which will effectively return focus, windows style, back to the orginal program.
