hi guys, is there a method of inserting a page with the message "please wait" or similar into a macro, for example i want to watch a DVD, the pronto fires out all the commands then jumps to the DVD control page, the tv however takes 10 sec to juice up. i would like a page to pop up saying "please wait" whilst this is happening and THEN jump to the DVD control page.
regards mark.

As the last commands in your macro, jump to the "Please Wait" page, then put in a 10-second delay, and then jump to the DVD Control page.

oh yes, stupid me! that works. has anyone thought up a more elegant solution than simply jumping to a single page with the message "please wait"?

For the longer macros in my PCF I've incorporated a series of loading pages which simulate a progress bar (courtesy of Daniel Tonks TSU7500 PCF), the last page of which lets the user know the macro has completed and that they're being taken to the main page for the particular activity. The header and messages above and below the progress bar are customized for each activity of course. To see my loading pages in action feel free to download my PCF via the link in my signature area below.

you can do anything you want. But all use the same principle (visual). You can malke a please wait, use several screens to be more interesting (you know loading with a bar graph 10%-20%.... an old TV coundown 10-9-......)


You can also add "music" if you want (series of beeps) Don't know if beeps work well in transfers from CCF but in the old Pronto section file section there is a CCF that has several good buttons for such a thing (theme music made to be added to macros)
