Love this skin and all its customizations. Thank you!

How can I customize Xeebo to always start up in the Video > Files screen? I used to have it working in the default Confluence skin, by adding the following as line 3 of Home.xml:

Code:
<onload condition="Window.Previous(startup)">ActivateWindow(Videos,Files,return)</onload>

I tried adding this same code to Xeebo's Home.xml, but no luck. Any suggestions?

Thanks. I'm running Frodo, which I don't think uses autoexec.py anymore for start-up services.

I'm thinking there's got to be a way to configure Xeebo's XML files (either Home.xml or Startup.xml) to force it to start up in a specific window. Looks like I'll have to do some more exploring.

Sorry I didn't see this but the code you posted should work; either that you could change the Startup.xml to load it instead of home.

Thanks Hitcher. I finally got it working. I modified both Startup.xml and Home.xml, but XBMC didn't recognize the change on reboot. So I switched back to the default Confluence skin, rebooted, then switched back to XeeBo and rebooted again. Now it works!

Minor issue: on startup, the 5th item in my Files list is selected by default, rather than the first. I remember this being an issue in Confluence as well. Is there any way I can reconfigure this? Is it the "onFocus" property in Home.xml?
