I've made a FMS for my theme. No problem so far.
But to my surprise I noticed that some dynamic text fields I use, like time or sleeptimer remaining time, are not working as expected. The display do not update after the content of the field has changed. I have to press a button or to turn the scrollweel to force a refresh.
Also alternating sublines seems not to work in the FMS screen. Only the first item is shown and never the next.
These issues only occure in the FMS screen.

Device: Sansa e200 V2
Build: r27008
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Out of Date
Additional comments about closing:  Old and the FMS has changed a lot since then. Open a new task if the bug still remains.

Would you be willing to upload the files you used? I have that same player and want to see what you're talking about, perhaps then I can better understand your problem. Thanks

My _guess_ is that you may put this info on lines that should also scroll (using the %s tag). Since you didn't post the FMS, I can't tell for sure though.

If that is what happened, then this is related to - an old bug which is next to impossible to fix with the current scroll engine. Theming of the radio screen was implemented way later than the bug report but it uses the same code as the WPS, so I think the above applies to the FM screen as well.
