    I can't seem to get ShortcutMe to work with Facebook.. I've tried MENUkey, PasteFromCB and key and none of these are sending anything to FB.. Any ideas?
    Those apps, or just their new release, might need what is called in "Macro World" special key clicks.
    I made a new version last night that allows you (by adding a * in front of the macro name) to make any key click macro (MENUKey, ESCKey, etc) to work as special key click.

    MENUKey. (Normal menu key click)
    *MENUKey. (Special menu key click)

    Hopefully this version (when made ready) will help you to run macros on those apps.

    Yes, Macros are addictive. If you have a very good one consider sharing it with others on this thread.

    Today or tomorrow I release the beta version (only to beta testers).
    Do you have the beta link?

    Here's one my first macro I thought I'd share.. Similar to the other one posted here but a little different..

    Calls vm, launches camera, waits for you to exit camera, then ends call and brings up home screen.

    Appname: call
    Parameter: YOURPHONENUMBER

    Macros:

    Launch Camera;
    Delay200;
    While0 IsAppRunning Camera;
    Do0;
    EndWhile0;
    Delay200;
    ENDKey;
    Launch Home Screen;

    OH oh oh. i get you! yeah

    Selecting "Launch" from the drop down menu in the Macro Editor, then clicking the "Add Selected Macro" button results in an blank pop up.

    using ShortcutMe_Touch 5.9.0.0 on 9780/7.0.0.353

    Cool.

    I would add 'Delay 200;' between 'Do0;' and 'EndWhile0;'.
    The good thing about Delay200 is that SCM doesn't heavily use the CPU while it is waiting for the Camera app to close.

    ShortcutMe 5.9.0.1 is on the beta link ready to be downloaded!

    New in 5.9.0.1:

    - If * is added in front of the Key macros SCM toggles the Special/Normal key click before simulating the key click:
    For example
    MenuKey (Clicks the Menu key)
    *MenuKey (Clicks the Menu key in special mode)
    *SpKeyD (Clicks D)
    *KeyD (clicks D in special mode)


    - Removed 'SetVolume' macro (BB OS API is not working)

    - Added 'KeypadLockKey' macro (simulates click of the Lock key on top of the device)

    - Empty 'Launch' macro popup screen is fixed.

    - Added 'IsHeadsetConnected' macro

    - HasRadioConnection macro is fixed (returns false for SOS).

    5.9.0.1 is only for 9900, 9930, 9810, 9850, and 9860. (The link on the bottom of the beta page)

    As soon as 5.9.0.1 is tested I will port the new changes to the version for the other BB models.

    upgraded to 5.9.0.1 from 5.9.0.0 on 9900/7.0.0.353

    restoring config seems to work, i ran though all the options and changed them to randomness, restored just fine afterwards

    the * switch seems to work perfectly

    setvolume is accurately detected as no longer vaild

    empty "Launch" prompt is fixed

    KEYPADLOCKKey is being parsed as KEYpadlock. as in, if i open MemoPad and try to use it, it types out PADLOCKKEY.

    tested IsHeadsetConnected using headphones only (lord knows where my headset is) and it worked, i'll dig up my bluetooth headset ... as soon as i can find it and test then.

    HasRadioConnection works perfect now (pulled out my SIM card and tested also)

    Considering above,
    *key = special key
    *spkey = key

    Is the asterisk an alternative for sp?
    I mean, is spkey the same as *key?

    Basically, * can be used with any key hereafter without you having to create a new "sp" macro for such key, am i correct?

    Did my best to test the heck out of this, and yes.

    SpKey == *Key
    *SpKey == Key

    I will fix the 'Keypadlock' overlapping with the 'Key' macro.

    IsHeadsetConnected might not detect BT headset connection.
    It was not originally meant for wireless connection.

    Maybe not, but I'd like to test with bluetooth headset if I can. Least then we'll know. Actually I'll definately test within like 12 hours, if I can't find mine I'll head to the store and ask to check one out ;D

    Juggalo20 is right.

    In general, anytime * is detected (in front of a Key click macro) by macro engine, the Key click will have a toggled
    injection mode (Regular<->Special) comparing to the mode if there were no *

    Thats very intuitive, considering keytospkey or even spkey in general tends to break down strings that contain numbers because spkey does not key numbers. Its now possible to use a general keytospkey and use a *key on those specific ones you want to rollback to a normal key.

    Are the sp macros going to be deprecated and removed? or you will keep them in there for legacy support?

    I would depricate and remove them if I could, but, as you also have mentioned, because of the legacy concerns I have to keep them.

    Flood warning...

    Listed Some Macros Below probably redundant for the seasoned folks, but here it goes...
    *this has only been tested using ShortcutMe v5.9.0.0 on a Bold 9900 v7.0.0.362
    *anytime NavMoveUp or NavMoveDown is used, MenuItemFromTop or MenuItemFromBottom is probably a safer alternative.
    *you may want/need to add Delay where applicable.


    Add Dictionary Word
    *updated in a later post

    Add Word Substitution
    *updated in a later post

    Launch Files App
    LaunchMediaExplorer;
    Delay100; suggested by Juggalo20 for greater stability
    MenuItemFromTop3;
    MENUKey;
    SpKeye;
    NavClick;

    Launch Music I have this assigned as a shortcut key with the MyOwnIcons app
    If0 IsAppRunningnet_rim_bb_medialibraryplayer;
    Then0;
    LaunchMediaCommon_BG;
    Launchnet_rim_bb_medialibraryplayer_BG;
    Else0;
    LaunchMedia_Music;
    EndIf0;

    Change GetTime Format from hhmm to hh:mm am/pm
    Set $time=GetTime;
    Div $time,100;
    If0 $time>1159;
    Then0;
    Set $ampm=PM;
    Sub $$Result,12;
    Else0;
    Set $ampm=AM;
    EndIf0;
    If1 $$Rest<10;
    Then1;
    Set $$Rest=0$$Rest;
    EndIf1;
    Set $time=$$Result:$$Rest $ampm;
    Show
    $time Local Time;

    Hidden Icons Toggle assumes that you're on the home screen
    MenuItemFromTop3;
    MENUKey;
    NavMoveDown2;
    NavClick;

    Password Toggle
    LaunchToolkit;
    MenuItemFromTop6;
    NavMoveRight1;

    question...

    Is there a way to have multiple $$results posted in one prompt? I've tried variations with set, no luck. It's for creating a world clock prompt macro, aka, just another App World product ShortcutMe replaces...

    Doesn't seem to be, if I use
    Set $test1=$$Result
    It literally sets $test1 as $$Result

    Using ShortcutMe_Touch 5.9.0.1 on 9900/7.0.0.440.

    Also ONE618 those are some pretty sexy macros. I've been too lazy to write something to launch Files for a while lol, net_rim_bb_file_explorer didn't launch when I tried and I just called it a day hah.

    Posted from my CrackBerry at wapforums.crackberry.com

    Update #1
    Launch Files App
    LaunchMediaExplorer;
    MenuItemFromTop3;
    MENUKey;
    SpKeye;
    NavClick;
    I strongly suggest you add a delay100 so it becomes

    LaunchMediaExplorer;
    Delay100;
    MenuItemFromTop3;
    MENUKey;
    SpKeye;
    NavClick;

    Because, when I launch the shortcut from the "Favorites" panel of the homescreen, it hits the MenuKey too quick and "Explore" isn't an option yet.

    (Agree with Juggalo20 that you have made very sexy macro sets)

    What you mean with multiple $$Result in one Prompt macro?
    Give me an example.

    I am working on a fix for the issue below:
    Set $Var1=$$Result; (Currently sets $Var1 to "$$Result" as a text)

    Off the top of my head I can't think of a realistic example, but I think he means something like

    Sum 1,2;
    Sub 3,6;
    Prompt $$Result $$Result

    Where he wants to do multiple equations and have all the results come through in the prompt. No big deal though, cuz once we can set $var=$$Result then this will be fixed.
