• XTRN Section

    From Biohazard@VERT to All on Tue Oct 31 13:45:00 2006

    I'm trying to use my own externals menu instead of the built-in synchronet one. Having trouble with setting it up so that when a user selects a command when in the externals menu, it won't go to that specific section.

    For instance:

    If my externals menu has:

    [1] General Games
    [2] Tools

    When a user selects 2, how do I make it so it goes to the Tools externals menu? I tried setting the string to "TOOLS" as per the internal code for that menu and then putting XTRN_SECTION "TOOLS" but that don't work. Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    the doors need to be called by thier internal code.
    i.e. LORD will call lord, etc.
    you need to do the menus in baja, I don't think you can call sections,
    just the programs in the configs.
    so your first menu would be called doors or some thing,
    this would show your doors sections,
    then you would have like rpgs or space or cards, etc.
    which would be all in baja.

    In Baja, this would be kludgey, but you could use ungetkey or something to force the user-input to go to the 2nd xtrn section. The Baja XTRN_SECTION doesn't support any arguments.

    Digital Man,

    May have to do each menu seperately then ... Ah well, just thought I'd ask before I do it the long way. <g>

    Thanks for the help.

    Corey,

    Thanks, I'll do each one seperately. I just thought there might have been an easier way but guess not. Thanks for the help my man.
