You still need the name of the Thing to be able to use it, so yes, the
name is relevant. However, in the case of Button Frame, it appears to
be in English accross the board.

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
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.)
As we have seen button_sleep is not the only anomaly: other Things
have also been given localised names. But button_sleep matters more
than the others, to my mind.
Three times lucky! Let me try again:
1) Does anyone here use localised versions of Qpac2, and
2) Could you please let me know what button_sleep is called in your
3) Alternatively, would someone please point me to the relevant
