  • Overlay Only Mod

    So is there a trick to do this?

    I want to add an Eject button to my iPod ExtOverlay, And I don't want it to bring up and entirely new screen, just a small window will do.

    I have the code for it and I made an overlay in the addin, but i can't figure out how to call it :\ And how to close it for that matter :P

    Scripted overlays are always active, but not always visible. To show the overlay, you just have to call the show method on the overlay. You can do this in the OnCreate event or any other event you want.

        Any of the addin examples on the Wiki that have overlays should show this.

            Okay I've looks and searched, and maybe you have VS or NET examples but I can not find any VBS examples, is there some sort of function guild or anything for VBS interaction?

            Also on a side note, I have some very very weird issue with SD in developer mode all of a sudden.

            if I bring up the IDE I then need to click on a normal windows win and select the drop down menu for the SD window to refresh and respond, and then the same going back to the IDE, so basically it makes it impossible to work with, but yesterday it worked find and the only difference that I can think of was a reboot, I was wondering if i could reset caches or something. Since the last thing that happened yesterday was SD in devel mode crashed on me so I just shutdown.

              overlayRecognition is an overlay that is an addin and is shown and hidden by events triggered in teh module, but you can just as easily have events received in the addin trigger it.

              Its basically the same for VBS. Just call the show or hide function from with the overlay itself when the trigger event you want happens.
