Can i change the navigation code?

Hello,

I’m curious if the navigation controls are alterable.  I’ve got my thumbs set up as follows:

[1] [3] [5] [7]

[2] [4] [6] [8]

But when i attempt to navigate from thumb to thumb, it still moves the cursor by numerical order, instead of position.

For example, in the above example, if i press the RIGHT button three times, the cursor moves to thumbs: 1 -> 2 -> 3 (moving the cursor up and down rows as needed) instead of just navigating 1 -> 3 -> 5-> as i’d expect.

Which isn’t really a deal-breaker i guess, it just looks weird.  However, it also seems to maintain the column structure, so after navigating RIGHT 4 times, it will jump to the next page of thumbnals, even though I’ve only gone through the left most 4 thumbs.  I cannot select thumbs 5-8.

Is the navigation hard coded to just follow numerical lables instead of actual placement?

I’d assume not, since you’re able to move freely in all directions in a larger 3x3 layout.

Anybody have any toughts?

Thanks!

In the Alaska Resurface theme  on the SMP with 15 or 18 movie view it moves across the top row  (left to right) 1 to 5 (or 1 to 6) then drops down to next line, not to next page as a lot of themes.

Is this what you are looking for?

Cheers

Navigation is controled by this line:

    <listbox valkey=“browselist” autoenter=“1” autoswitch=“1” move=“page” cols=“6” rows=“2” lbmask=“l” loop_scroll=“1” turbo_trigger=“10” turbo_multi=“10” hormove=“1” />

Make sure that you have the right number of “cols” and “rows”, then change the “lbmask” to “HT” or your can use “l” depending on how you want to move.

So here's my code . . . still have numerical scrolling, instead of scrolling by location. Any thoughts?

Thanks so much!

<listbox valkey="browselist" autoenter="1" autoswitch="0" move="page" cols="6" rows="2" lbmask="HT" loop_scroll="1" turbo_trigger="10" turbo_multi="10" hormove="1" />

I should probably clarify:

This code is for the Large Video Browse Page and looks like this:

[00] [02] [04] [06]  [08]  [10]

[01] [03] [05] [07]  [09]  [11]

Navigating from [00] :

Pressing RIGHT, takes me to [01]

Pressing DOWN, takes me to [06]

etc.

Thanks!!!

That’s because the firmware doesn’t see each individual number.  It only sees the rows and columns, and the numbers in order within the rows and columns.

You can’t have the numbering order that you have.  If you 2 rows and 6 columms, then you have to order it  like this:

0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11

The firmware will only see row 1 as 1-5 and row 2 as 6-11, always, no matter where you place the actual thumb.  So starting from postion “0”, when you press the right arrow it will always jump to postion “1” and when you press the down arrow it will always jump to postion “6”.  You can’t change this behavior. 

That’s what I was assuming after playing around with it . . . Thanks for confirming.
