App Name Bluetooth_Toggle
Ap Name BlackberryBridge

It tells me "No macro found". Why?
The new version of ShortcutMe has following new macros:
IF2 IsValidNumber $var3;
IF2 IsValidText $var4;
IF2 $var4 EndsWith er;
IF2 $var4 StartsWith 2gt;
- A bug in Show macro is also removed
New versions that are released with these macros are:
- 126.96.36.199 for 9900,9930,9980, 9810,9850,9860,9790,9350,9360,9370, and 9380

I'm really looking for some help with macros in Shortcutme. I'd like a macro that can open a particular folder I have made in Media>Pictures, and so I can see the thumbnails.
(Launch Media, navigate three to the right, click click and click)
I've made that, except that if media is already running in the background, the same macro then does all sorts of crazy things. So I wanted to be able to use the IF/ELSE commands, in order that this stream of actions only occur if Media ISN'T running in the background already, or some other logical workaround. Can anyone help?
In ShortcutMe 6.0 and 6.1, following macros are added:
- IsModuleForeground (returns TRUE if a specific module runs in foreground)
- IsModuleRunning (returns TRUE if a specific module is running)
- GetModuleForeground (returns the module name for the app on the screen)
- LaunchModuleAndWait (launches a module and waits for it to come to foreground)
- LaunchModule (launches a module)
- CloseOptions (Makes sure that BB Options is closed and not on a sub page. This is handy for any macro you have to change a setting in BB Options).
- SafeMode_On (turns on Safe Mode to prompt you when a macro tries to click a key, an item, or a hotkey)
- SafeP (invokes a Safe Mode prompt)
- SafeMode_Off (Turns off Safe Mode)
- SelectFrom (Brings up a screen with a list of options. $$Result will be set to selected option number, starting from 0)
ShortcutMe 6.2 (220.127.116.11 up to 18.104.22.168) has following new macros:
- SearchAndRun (Search for something and then launch it directly from macros)
- TurnBtOn (only for BB OS 6 and 7)
- TurnBtOff (only for BB OS 6 and 7)
- TurnNFCOn (only for BB OS 6 and 7)
- TurnNFCOff (only for BB OS 6 and 7)
- 'Set' and 'SetGlobal' macros can now do +, -, *, and / calculations.
Calculation is done step by step from left to right.
Example: Set $Var1 = 3 + $V1 - 53 + 32;
Example: Set $Var2 = This +is +an +example; /*$Var2 is now equal to "This is an example" */

Is it possible to make a shortcut that will open the calendar and if it sees a birthday, alert me and send an email to that person? Also, how do i know what the application name is that I want to open? Say for instance, what is the correct name for the home screen? As you can see, I am very new to the macro's, and to blackberry itself. Also, how do I know how many bytes are on each smart tag?

Trying to keep this thread as a reference manual to macros in ShortcutMe.
Following macros are available/changed in ShortcutMe 22.214.171.124 but not mentioned here in this thread (which works as the Reference Manual for macros in ShortcutMe):
Following macros are added:
- SearchOptionsAndOpen /*Searches for a name in BB Options and opens the first match: Usually the setting page for name specified*/
SearchOptionsAndOpenBlackBerry Bridge; /* Opens settings page for the BlackBerry Bridge*/
- AutoLaunchAdd /*Schedules a shortcut to launch x minutes later*/
Format: AutoLaunchAdd ANumber, MinutesFromNow, ShortcutToLaunch;
AutoLaunchAdd 1,65,TBT; /*Sets AutoLaunch # 1 to launch TBT shortcut in ShortcutMe 65 minutes from the time this macro is executed. The number 1, is a number identifying this auto launch. Macros can later on, override this autolaunch with a new timing and shortcut key if they use the same number*/
- AutoLaunchRemove /*Removes a previously added auto launch by 'AutoLaunchAdd' macro */
AutoLaunchRemove 1,TBT; /*Removes AutoLaunch # 1 if it was set to launch TBT shortcut in ShortcutMe */
- StopAndRunShortcut /*Stops running the macros in the current shortcut and launches a new shortcut in ShortcutMe*/
StopAndRunShortcut AB; /*Put this at the end of one macro shortcut to run a new shortcut. This can in most cases eliminate the need to have CascadedShortcuts*/
- GetCB /*Returns the text stored in the BB's Clipboard*/
- GetWaitTilDelay /*Returns the value used for delays in LaunchAndWait, LaunchModuleAndWait, etc */
- GetSSID /*Returns SSID of the router the BB is connected to (if any) */
Following macros are enhanced:
- SelectFrom macro accepts font size parameter
SelectFrom **20, Option1, Option2, Option3; /*Increases the font size with number 20 */
- SelectFrom macro accepts '//' as parameter for shortcut keys for the shown options.
SelectFrom f//irst,s//econd. /* F is now the shortcut for 'first' option, and S is now the shortcut for 'second' option */

Hey, I need some help with this. I'm trying to make a macro to use with NFC to launch a playlist and shuffle the order so it doesn't start with the first song every time. Right now I have this that works:
EXCEPT if the media is still open before and is already in a different page, it'll select the wrong things. What should I add so that if it was already running from before to either go back to the original screen after you launch media_music for the first time, or just exit it so it can launch from scratch? I know it'll be something with the if-then macros, but not completely sure about how to use those just yet. Kind of similar to Java which I used to know way back when, lol. Can someone show me what to add to that macro?
The following macro in ShortcutMe 126.96.36.199 running on BB OS 7.1.442 makes sure that Media is closed. It doesn't run anything if Media app is not open. (useful to run it before your macro):
If2 isAppRunning MediaCommon;
While2 IsAppRunning MediaCommon;
Re: Macros in ShortcutMe
Following macros are added in ShortcutMe 188.8.131.52:
Switches keyboard input language to the specified language after "remembering" current input language. Following languages are supported: Arabic(ar) , Catalan (ca) , Czech (cs), German (de), English (en), French (fr), Hindi (hi), Italian (it), Korean (ko), Polish (pl), Russian (ru), Thai (th), Turkish (tr), Vietnamese (vi), Chinese (zh), Spanish (es)
Example: SwitchInputTo es;/* Switches input language to Spanish*/
Switches keyboard input language back to what it was before changing it to another language (in SwitchInputToEnglish macro)
Returns TRUE if the keyboard input language is English.

Turn on Bluetooth (or turn it off)
and this works fine.
Now I want to add the following but CANNOT figure it out. Need some help please.
Want to first add:
Turn on SILENT RING PROFILE
Turn on BEDSIDE mode
I've hit a wall here. Thanks for any suggestions.

Alternative to using ShortCutMe
Personally, I've decided not to use shortcutme for this particular functionality since it requires the use of navigating through the menu to change profiles (which doesn't work well when the phone is locked or holsterd). Instead I've found a great profile changing app that does it perfectly when the phone is locked or holstered and doesn't use navigation to accomplish it - is does it with internal functions (from what I can tell). Check out: Profile Changer - by Toysoft
Profile Changer for BlackBerry OS 7.1 takes care of profile management for you | CrackBerry.com
It's by far the best one out there, and I've tried them all.
Note: I LOVE shortcutme and use it for many things, just not this particular function.

Have to agree with the solution, though Bedside Mode has other advantages to just changing the Profile....don't remember them all, but Battery was one I believe (the Clock is another)!
