    Get skin to Autoswitch back to Main Menu?

    Hello,

    I use the LSX Void skin and it has has several menu pages. I was wondering if one you skinning geniuses could tell me what modifications i need to make to the skin to make it so when i choose one of the second or third menu pages that after a set amount of time (30 seconds) it will autoswitch to the main menu page.

    I know that it is possible i just dont know how

    Any help is greatly appriciated.

    Thanks in advance

    just wondering if adding a wait command to the button that brings you to the next menu would work.
    something like this.
    "LOAD;menu2.skin||wait;30||LOAD;menu.skin"

    in the menu2.skin and menu3.skin etc files add an IDL commands such as

    IDL,30 ... put this as the 4th line in the file.

    and in the exectbl.ini file ... just add "IDLE","MAIN",menu2.skin,menu3.skin etc ...


    this will cause each of the menu2 and menu3 menus to return to the main menu after 30 seconds.

    ... as long as you don't touch the screen. Any recognized mouse movement will reset the 30 seconds. That should work perfectly though.

    If you want it to switch back after 30 seconds no matter what, then instead of this:

    Use this:

    Code:
    TMR,30  ... put this as the 4th line in the file.
    
    and in the exectbl.ini file ... just add "TIMER","MAIN",menu2.skin,menu3.skin

    I don't know if that thread is still applicable ... I have a skin here with IDL timers on both audio_browser and playlist selector skins and both work perfectly ... and do not interfere with any other timers / IDL commands that are in use on the skin .
