AFAIK I do not believe you can assign an action to the backlight button

On my System Page I have an invisible button which covers the various system items in the upper right corner of the screen. Said button is used to access my "Lighting" activity. It's a dual use button actually. A normal button press takes you to my "Lighting" activity. An extended button press takes you to my "System Status" page.

But how do you may the said button be "On TOP" if you like layer 0, as the script i have running covers all the system items?
we are back to Z layers again :)

Program one of your hard buttons with that "Press & Hold" functionality instead. I provide a ProntoScript example per how to do this here.

I don't think you understand what I'm saying. Program one of your hard buttons to perform its default action with a normal button press. Have it take you to your lighting page with an extended button press. Why can't you do that?

For some reason the script wont let your code run, it has a load of prontoscript libraries in the Script and i think they have taken over .... ill try it another way :)

The relevant ProntoScript from that post is shown below. Using a normal button press the function called "doOneThing()" is executed. Using an extended button press the function called "doAnother()" is executed instead.

var counter = 0;
onHold = function()
{ counter++;
if (counter==1) { doAnother(); }
}
onHoldInterval = 1000; onRelease = function()
{ if (counter==0) {doOneThing(); }
}


Now if the activity you are working with won't let you integrate the above ProntoScript per one of your hard buttons couldn't you just add a regular button to that activity that takes you to your lighting page?

GoPronto,

The page is not dynamically created, just the contents. You can add your own code to the page script and it will get executed as well.

Did you try something like this from the page script...

var bw = GUI.widget('PS_BACKLIGHT');
bw.onPress = function()
{
System.print("Hello World");
}

I know there is no way to add actions for backlight via PEP. I have never tried the above but it might be worth a shot as well.

I suspect Philips may prevent this but if not, might be worth a shot. However, I strongly recommend LowPro's approach instead.
