I'm trying to make it so that whenever I press the AppsKey (right now it's temporarily at the End key) it opens up the main menu & also so I can convert it into an .ahk script that fires when I click on a specially-designed rainmeter button. But no matter what combinations of Menu Toggle Menu Show etc it keeps displaying the xoblite config menu instead. I've looked in as many places as I could but to no avail. Sorry 4 noob question its pretty late at night

@xoblite Menu Show

...shows the Main menu (i.e. the one defined by menu.rc).

@xoblite Menu Show Configuration

...shows the Configuration menu.


Out of curiousity, why doing the above via Rainmeter by the way? xDesktopAnimation actions are your friend! :yes: (cf. multiple examples in the xoblite bb5 RC3+ default theme)

PS. You know you can execute broams via the command line too right? (less efficient than the above of course, but an option)

Blackbox.exe -broam @xoblite Menu Show

Yeah all the 'elegant' solutions I tried either didn't work or just brought up the config menu no matter what I do but running the command line broam via the .ahk script managed to get it to work for right now. So thanks for that!
