Kids and Dad menus in library mode in Horizonz on Plex - 123ccd - 2008-11-29 17:59
I modified xml files to get two menus (Kids and Dad) in Home screen instead of one Movies menu.
Here is what I did:
I made two smart playlists. One named Kids that includes family genre movies and one named Dad that excludes family genre movies.
In strings.xml I changed CLIP to KIDS and ADULT to DAD.
In Sources.xml I put new source with path to playlists/video.
In Homescrollers.xml I changed clips and adult: <onclick>XBMC.ActivateWindow(MyVideoFiles,path to playlist/Kids.xsp)</onclick>
<onclick>XBMC.ActivateWindow(MyVideoFiles,path to playlist/Dad.xsp)</onclick>
In Home Shortcuts I selected Clips and Adult and deselected Movies.
In Backgrounds I selcted folders for Clips and Adult.
Now in Home screen i have Kids and Dad instead of Movies.
And I can see scraped info.
BUT: View types avalable are List, Poster and Showcase. List view works as it should. In poster view it doesn't show thumbnail of selected movie, only reflection. In Showcase (that is what I want to use) movie thumbnail doesn't slide to the left when info pane slides in. So info pane will be on top of the thumbnail.
Any Ideas how to fix this?
I changed MyVideoFiles to MyVideoLibrary in Homescrollers.xml and now I have two movie libraries in library mode instead of one. Sweet.
I also added 'return' as a parameter to the activatewindow call (thanks to jmarshall), so it will take only one step to get back to the main menu.

How exactly do I do that?
I have to click the "exit" button on my remote many times to go from viewing my movies to get to the main menu.

Change it to:
Now you go from movie library to main menu with one click.

I played around with it and
XBMC.ActivateWindow(24,plugin://video/Apple Movie Trailers II,return) does not work to well with Antlantis release but..
<onclick>XBMC.ActivateWindow(MyVideoLibrary,plugin://video/Apple Movie Trailers II,return)</onclick>
works fine on mac version at least..
So thanks all...

Now I have more than two smart playlists. I uploaded screen capture video to youtube to demonstrate Plex and Horizonz to my friend. If you are interested how Horizonz looks with these playlists you can watch it here:
