Detect the overall color of the fanart behind where the text is, and adjust the font color accordingly... Because movies with dark backgrounds look great, but some white fanarts make it difficult to read any text...
that's just not possible. the only thing i can do is to give you an option to make the skin more opaque. it should be available in one of the future releases.
clock2113 Wrote:Also, what about an option to get rid of the check boxes for watched movies, and instead color the font or bold the font differently?
should be a lot of work, but it is possible.
it's not something 'm planning to do tough, sorry.
clock2113 Wrote:Lastly, is it possible to manually edit an XML file somewhere to change the number of movies shown at a time in fanart view, or is that hardcoded, and something we have to wait for an update for?
i'm not opposed to shortening the list in fanart view to 10 items. but i'm sure others would like it to stay the way it is, or even want a longer list (which is not really possible in the current layout).
the number of items in the list is determined by the height of the list control.
check ViewsVideoLibrary.xml, line 521.
if you decide to change it, you'll also have to slide the panel down a bit more,
this is done by the animation in MyVideoNav.xml
last you'll have to define a new scrollbar that matches the size of a list with 10 items (see Includes.xml).
that should be it.
