    Exiting from a screensaver plugin

    I use

    PluginHelperFactory
    .getPluginHelper().ReturnToMainMenu();
    to exit from my screensaver plugin. Is there a way to exit back to the app that had control before MLPanel kicked in?

    Unfortunately not. There is something the built in screen saver does to achieve this, but it would have meant changing the public API, so I didnt bother.

    I can look into exposing a new API for this if you want it.

    I don't think the gbpvr screen saver does this...doesn't it default to main menu as well??

    I could be wrong though

    It would certainly be a "nice to have"

    Did that make it into 1.3.7?

    Is there any chance this might make it into the next release?

    I can aim for 1.4.

    There will most likely be a 1.3.x something release relatively soon, but that will mainly be rolling up bug fixes.
