Title: How about adding "Start Sleep Timer" command to Quickscreen?
Post by: joeyeti on April 10, 2013, 07:35:35 AM
Hi folks,

I keep using Rockbox on my Sansa Fuze v2 pretty much since I acquired it (some 4 years now) and it truly rocks!
Kudos to all developers!

One thing I would love to be able to do is to start the Sleep Timer from the Quickscreen menu (with one of the four available directions). It is not so far possible, as a long-press on "Start Sleep Timer" does not offer such option (however other settings there can be linked, but those are quite useless for me since I have to go to the menu to start the Timer anyway).

Would this be possible to implement?


Also, it does not seem possible to add the command to the Shortcuts, as it is not listed here (again only the other Sleep Timer settings are):

You can add it to shortcuts (e.g.for 15 mins);

Code: [Select]
[shortcut]
name: Start Sleep Timer
type: time
data: sleep 15

[shortcut]
name: Stop Sleep Timer
type: time
data: sleep 0

As far as I remember, you can't add it as a quickscreen item because the menu item has dynamic text or is a dynamic target (or something).

Thx nick!

Too bad it is a dynamic entry, but I understand the reasoning behind it (to show the set time to the user...).

If someone would ever care to make the Start a fixed command with possibly showing the time separately, it would be nice :)
