Id like to make a control that filters out a couple of genres & the movies that apply to them. ie Action & Horror

Can this be done in the skin or is it at code level??

have played around with <visibile>! & Substring. for the list info but it does freaky things.

thanks

Use a smartplaylist.

Hmm, good question. I *think* you can do it via ActivateWindow(VideoLibrary,<path_to_smart_playlist>) but I'm not 100 on that.

The path would be something like: special://profile/playlists/video/<name of playlist>.xsp

Give it a whirl anyway and see where you get to. If we have to make some code modifications to get this to work correctly we will.

Cheers,
Jonathan

Can confirm

<onclick>ActivateWindow(VideoLibrary,special://xbmc/userdata/playlists/video/Test.xsp)</onclick>

Works perfectly

Thanks again JM
