Quote from: "ya1950"The slider in the Breeze skin is from PocketBreeze - that's why it's so nice . I decided to use PB for my POOM section because I couldn't find a way to do this with Today+ alone.I don't think this type of slider is possible within Today+. The best I can come up with is:outlook,2,1,238,%var1%,1,0,%var2,,,1where var1 = the height of the area and var2 = maximum height to cache data for.By changing the variables you can display more or less data for a particular date. (For an example of this take a look at the POOM section of the Dash skin. I used something like this to vary the amount of agenda or task entries that showed on the screen when one or the other was mimimized.) Once you have the maximum data for that particular date you could jump to the next day by using the code that that ZapMe1 refered to above.This still doesn't actually scroll the data within a particular day since the data will always start with the first outlook entry. It would rather expand the POOM area, showing more entries as the variable was increased and then jump to the next day when a maximum was reached.It would be nice to have a way of knowing the maximum number of entries there are for a particular day. Then you could use an if/else statement to automatically jump to the next day once you reach the maximum for that day. Unfortunately I don't think there is a way to do this within Today+.I don't think you can use the x,y region variables to scroll because AFAIK the oulook statement will always start with the first entry regardless of where the region is placed. You could use a variable for the region's height and alter this but it would only acomplish the same thing as the code above.
QuoteThat sounds interesting! The problem you will run into is that you can't scroll past whatever outlook data you have. ie. if you have 10 items in a day and only 5 are showing, even if you mask some you will never get the other 5.
QuoteHere is another idea What about using the outlook command to show an entire day - ie. all 10 items. Then create a series of graphic images to mask some of the items? If you chose the background theme carefully the user won't even realize that these are not the theme itself. By manipulating the images you could have the illusion of scrolling. When you reach the end of that day's data you could scroll the next day and do the same thing. The problem here, as I stated above is that I don't know of a way to determine when you have reached the end of one day's data and want to scroll to the next day.If you get this working I'll try to add a scroller to the Breeze skin
Quote from: "Wichtel"@ uk_skinnerSuper work your code. I have installed into the Hammerskin yesterday and the problem also could solve under the Headline. Details on the code in the next version. Again:Super work
