I've searched around and I can't find an answer to this: is it possible for addons to set breadcrumbs?

For example, in my iPhoto plugin, if the user is in Events, I want the breadcrumbs up top to display:

Home > Pictures > Events

If they navigate to a specific event called "Foo", it should be:

Home > Pictures > Events > Foo

Is this just not possible, or am I missing something?

Nope, the add-on cannot set that - it's defined by the skin (usually on the basis of content set). Something else for the future (turn the directory history into suitable infolabels for controls - probably needs a dedicated breadcrumb control).

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.
Do not e-mail XBMC-Team members directly asking for support. Read/follow the forum rules.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.

Ok, at least I'm not just missing something lol. The documentation for this stuff is so spread out that I'm often left wondering if I've just missed something obvious..

Just a +1 on this - would be super handy in any plugin with some depth to it....even if we could just set the label in a simple sense, but definig a depth hierachy would be handy...
