dunpealhunter Wrote:I miss that in almost every skin i see.correct, reason is, it's not possible in xbmc.
dunpealhunter Wrote:The only skin that i found that has something remotely like that is transparency with the scrollweel.as far as i know, i'm not using any special tricks in T!
so if your scrollwheel works there, it should in every skin.

it's not as easy as that. it all has to be pre-coded in the skin and it's not just changing a number in some file.
it can be a lot of code for each tv show and it's code known to ask for quite a bit of resources. hence it's limited to 20-30 in most skins.
but sure, i'm all for trying to see how far we can push things. ;-)

it's your cpu that'll do the bleeding. :-)

if it doesn't break any of the current functionality i'm all for it.
several skins (paperstreet/simplicity) also use your script outside of the videolibrary to create a tv schedule like this:
i hope this will still be possible if you change your script.
- ppic - 2011-01-19 13:20
yes, it will still be possible
don't worry about that.

I've got an idea for a re-design of this screen since were using poster in it Ronie. Ill get a mockup put together today most likely. Can we make this list scroll? I'm thinking about expanding to a full weeks listing as well.

I always forget that for a lot of these lists you don't get some kind of loop for each iteration, but have to hard code each item. (Like the RSS feeds) I wonder how non-trivial that sort of functionality would be to add to the skinning engine. For the RSS feed, simply define what an item looks like and loop over that item X times, increasing Y variable with each iteration.

but what we can't do (ignore what i've coded so far...it's incorrect) is use alternate left/right layouts for the episodes.
since it's a list, each item on it has the same layout.

Boo! Ok. I've got an idea to make it work I think.

How about this?
As you scroll to each item, change the logo and poster art. You wont be able to actually select anything, however... Maybe selecting an item would take you to that show's page?
And back clears the screen... (which it doesn't do now for some reason btw, I actually have to push esc)
Oh oh oh!!! How about this! If the episode is episode 1 of the season we can add some sort of "Season premiere" tag. I like it! Can be done with a stringcompare? I think we should use this throughout the TV views if its possible. I'll work something up.
