Softkey Menu Buttons Disabled?


The softkey menu buttons do not work when Managed Items are being used. The softkey menus work if pressed on the screen, but not if the buttons are used. Buttons work as soon as Managed Items is unselected as a plug in. Using Windows Mobile 6.

Any ideas Chris? Tis the same on a HTC TyTNII running WM6.1.

Stunning work by the way!! :)

I have the same problem: the softkey button area at the bottom of the screen does not redraw itself unless a program is opened or a notification is displayed. The hardware buttons work for any program EXCEPT for the Today Screen. I can use my stylus to tap the buttons on the screen and the proper action is executed even though the only thing I see there is the last item that was drawn. So for example, if "Managed Items" is checked under Today Settings -> Items and I open Internet Explorer and then close it, I will still see the softkey buttons for Internet Explorer instead of the Today Screen. If I tap either softkey using my stylus I see the proper menu or action associated with it but that only applies to the stylus and not the physical button for that softkey.

Using WM 6.1 with other 3rd party Today Screen plugins. And I agree, absolutely amazing work here!

Have anybody figured out how to solve this issue? I'm having this problem too both on emulator and on real device. I'm using WM 6. I've installed the sample today screen items and they too disables the soft keys. Soft keys work on applications other than today screen though.
