    SetLabel

    Is it me or is the command SetLabel not working anymore? I have a command where I call a MENU but the label is not populating. Here is my command.
    "ESC||RM_Add2Disk1||MENU;AddSong.skin||SETLABEL;!D iskNumber;1"

    Now, AddSong pops up but the label is blank.

    I think this bug can be considered CONFIRMED...

    I just tested this here (and works):
    L,625,25,117,25,28,68,227,18,"Arial:B","!test",""

    with command:

    setlabel;!test;Hello!

    can any of you post a .skin and command combination which isn't working ?

    Ok works if I put the label in a skin and put the ! before the label code.
    If there is no ! then the label displays then goes blank.
    Still can't get the skin tool to get the label information though.

    Why use a test label that starts w/ a "!"?? Was there something new that the "!" in front of a std lbl changes or does?

    yes... the ! does do something
    it sounds obsoleted
    and one should use a label and a var

    ! in front of a label is the same as "CUSTOM" in front of a label. This IS AN OBSOLETE feature and only works in the SKIN itself as setlabel will directly set the label text without ever setting/reading it again -- this means that skintool (or any other plugin) will never be able to read it.

    As mentioned, this feature is obsolete and is only available to support older plugins/applications still using it. The RECOMMENDED way of doing exactly the same is:

    LABEL CODE: Instead of "!TEST" use "=$TEST$"
    COMMAND: Instead of "SETLABEL;!TEST;Hello!" use "SETVAR;TEST;Hello!"

    The results are the same, however you CAN read the variable from skintool/plugins and furthermore, the command will work for displaying the data on ALL screens of RR without having to resend it for every screen (using SETLABEL you'd only set that label on the CURRENT screen and if you wanted to show the data on different screens, you'd have to execute SETLABEL again after every screen change - or on a timed basis).
