The "Button Frame" is marked in the Thing list as UTIL, not an EXEC Job so
the language of the name seems irrelevant.
BUTTON_SLEEP/_SCHLAF is the only exception as far as QPAC2 Buttons are
There doesnt seem to be an easy way to check the Qpac2 version; at
least nothing standard to determin the language. In SBASIC a heuristic
approach may be the simplest:
100 IF HOT_TYPE("button_sleep") = 4 THEN
110 EXEP 'button_sleep'
120 ELSE : IF HOT_TYPE("button_schlaf") = 4 THEN
130 EXEP 'button_schlaf'
140 ELSE : IF HOT_TYPE("button_xxxx") = 4 THEN
150 EXEP 'button_xxxx'
160 ELSE: PRINT 'Not found'
170 END IF : END IF : END IF
The keyword HOT_TYPE is built into SMSQ/E and hot_rext, and returns
err_nf if the named Thing is not present. What Id still like to know
is what other button_xxxx'es there are out there. Anyone?
The Button Frame Thing appears to be called "Button Frame" in all
languages. The sources are in among the SMSQ/E sources, although the
binary is not part of the OS but comes with Qpac2. The Button Frame is
also mentioned in the latest version of the SMSQ/E Guide. No mention
there of language differences.
I don't know Tobias's BSLEEP tool but there is also Jochen's BTFRAME to
make use of the QPAC2 Frame and control your button. The bin is only 286
bytes but you need some extra S*Basic lines.
(It's on QLT CDv7i5 and probably the later ones.)
