    Is there a way to prevent a screen (skin) from being cached?

    As the title said, is there a way to prevent a screen (skin) from being cached?

    The reason is that I have an IMG tag defined in a skin where the actual image keeps getting updated or even deleted. I want to make sure everytime the screen is opened, the newest image should show up (or doesn't show up if the file has been deleted).

    Add this to the .skin file:

    /DISCARDABLE

    RR will load the skin, and when leaving it, discard it, so each time you pull the screen it will be reloaded from scratch.

    In your case though, I'd suggest you look into the indicators section. You can make an indicator based on a file.. RR will update it as it changes for you.

    Thanks. You mean the "FILE;C:\MyInd.GIF" indicator? Does that actually show the image?

    yes, it loads the image as it changes, or erases it if not available/invalid.
