This is a half-finished trick, which also involves the question of how to perfect it.
I want to be able to toggle the keyguard prefs (on a 650) between "Disabled" and "5 seconds after power off", which are two of the 4 choices for this pref.
The closest Ive got so far are assigning the two following macros to, say, Hrd1:
5 seconds after power off
What they do is: open Keyguard, open the Crtl for disable/enable options (=Ctrl 1003) then scroll up or down to the appropriate option, then tap on it (point 39,32) then tap on the "Done" field (= Ctrl 1009).
It works well UNTIL I mistakenly call up the alternate macro to the one I should be invoking. Then, the fact that each macro relies on the Navigation of TWO steps up or down within the range of FOUR disable/enable options results in the macro landing in in one of the options I don't want. And further invokings of the macros continue do the same.
The need to rely on the use of the Navigation up and down stems from the fact that the 4 options within Ctrl 1003 don't seem to be specified in any way. If they were I could side-step the navigation steps, with their potential to screw things up.
If I was content with the 30 seconds after power off option, use of the Nav button would not be a problem, because one just Navigates up or down three steps, and there is no chance of landing on one of the unwanted options. But I typically ride my bike with my Treo in a regular pants-pocket, with screen facing in, and the jostling leads to occasional button presses. Thus I dont want my unit staying on for 30s each time this happens.
So Im curious if anyone knows:
- if there is some way to choose the enable/disable Keyguard options more precisely
BTW: Apt actually handles this macro much better than MacroPlayer, because MP doesnt let you choose Keyguard directly, and thus you not only have to use the Nav buttons within the Keyguard options ,but to choose Keyguard itself within Prefs. Macroplayer doesnt handle such Navigation tasks all that well.
