tv show next aired script - new features for skinners - ronie - 2011-10-09 16:53
it's always been a nightmare for skinners to use the info provided by the script
as it needs a giant amount of visible conditions to turn it into something useful.
recently, 'Black came up with a suggestion to make life a lot easier for skinners.
so, we got to work and added two new features to the script:
1) you can now run the script when entering the library.
and the script will return the info for the selected listitem.
(see included readme for details)
2) the script will provide a TV Guide window.
there's no need to construct your own tv guide with hundreds of visible conditions anymore.
you can simply use the one provided by the script and/or skin it to match the look and feel of your skin.
for backwards compatibility, all the old infolabels (NextAired.%d.Foo) have been left intact,
but i'd like to remove them in time.
if there's any questions or if you think we've missed something, feel free...
script.tv.show.next.aired v4.0.1 is now available in the pre-eden addon repo

Something's wrong with the first Thurs entry - it highlights Fri.

Oh my - all that re-work to do.
Still it makes sense to simplify it - good work guys.
Do you know if these kind of visibilities will still work for airing today style widgets?

Nice work! I see one error in the log show up:
Do you need a full log for this?
Also the TodayTotal returns 0 while in the next aired window I have several shows airing on sunday.

2 bugs :
- 2 shows have the correct date but displayed on wrong day (red ellipse)
- 3 shows airing today, none at total (green ellipse)

I'll fix that, never tested with mouse.
Do you have any tv shows? If so, try to remove the canceled.db & next_aired.db from userdata/addon_data/script.tv.show.next.aired

i'd like to remove all NextAired.%d.Today labels, unless are still needed for some reason of course.
i have no clue in what ways skins are currently using the info provided by next aired, so if the new labels aren't sufficient, let me know.
you can now do

the readme might not be entirely clear on this i guess,
but for totals use:
in case you're already using that, let me know and i'll have a closer look.

you've got some pretty weird results
what skin are you running this on?
mind posting your nextaired db so i can try to reproduce?
