• lightbar examples?

    From Nelgin@VERT/EOTLBBS to All on Mon May 8 05:05:56 2023
    Hi all,

    I want to write a script using the lightbar library but it's all a little confusing having never used it before and I came up short looking for documentation.

    Does anyone have a small script they've already created or if someone is familiar with it, just get me going with a simple menu with one or two options available for a bar with one or two main options? I would most appreciate it.

    Thanks,

    Many of my mods use dd_lightbar_menu.js (which I wrote), which provides a lightbar menu class you can use in JS scripts.

    I made a wiki page to document dd_lightbar_menu.js (at least, what it does and the functions it has, etc.):
    http://wiki.synchro.net/custom:javascript:lib:ddlightbarmenu.js

    DDMsgReader.js uses it, but for a smaller example, you could look at my area choosers, or perhaps DDFileLister or SlyVote.

    I did think about using that but I wanted something "comes with" Synchronet.

    That said, I'll keep that as my backup option in case I can't work it out.

    Thanks,

    dd_lightbar_menu.js is in the Synchronet code repository (in exec/load), so it comes with Synchronet as much as any of the other JS scripts in there - so I'm not quite sure what you mean?

    what does that even mean? it's using code that works with synchronet.
    you could atleast learn from it.

    also that lightbar script is in the file repo.

    Good point.
