Can't display a layer type="container"

Hey guys,

Totally newbie question here:

I'm just pasting this simple code (which I took from the krpano demo folder) into my tour.xml

Source code

<layer name="topbar"    type="container" align="lefttop"    width="100%" height="50" bgcolor="0x000000" bgalpha="0.5" />

I simply expect to see a frame displaying. Right ? But nothing does display.

I'm getting crazy, cause it's something so basic and I can't manage to make it work . What am I missing ?

A container layer shouldn't be closed this way but :
<layer type="container" ....>
Is it in a scene or outside, if outside and you want to display it in all your scenes then add keep="true"

Ooh, yea, thanks a lot jeromebg. I've forgot the keep="true" in this case. I've used it in other tests and it also wasn't working, but because I didn't remove the url="...".

Everything is clear now. And thank you, you also made me understand what this keep="true" is all about.

Have a good day, Merci !
