You could probably do it if you have a static set of items (i.e. that never change) as you could fade them based on what has focus. Would be kinda icky though!

I'll have to look into all this, for now I'll just keep them all faded Tongue

Back to the kerning issue... I modified the metrics of the entire font (meaning the letters have less white space at the sides) and that turned up pretty good, excepts for a few pairs (for example AV). For those, I tried to modify the kerning pairs, but that had no effect on the rendering of the fonts in XBMC.

Is it possible that currently xbmc desn't support kerning pairs?

jm, could itemlayout be changed (i.e., at the xbmc/developer level, not by skinning) so that a call to listitem.[property] from within itemlayout grabs the "current" unfocused item instead of the selected item? Would be a huge help for both Concrete and the Revamp list view that I am working on for Aeon.

It already does. You just can't actually set any properties, right?

No, for example, if I wanted to call substring(listitem.videoresolution,720) from within itemlayout, it will return the videoresolution of the selected item -- which is weird, because if I just make listitem.videoresolution the info for a label control, it works as it should.

it's not the listitem.xxx that doesn't work. it is the visibility conditional that doesn't work on non focused items.

That should be easy enough to fix.

EDIT: try r22183.

could you perhaps create a label that returns what position the actual control is in relative to the focused one? Then you could do:
<animation effect="fade" start="100" end="50" time="200" condition="stringcompare(ListItem.RelativePosition,-2)">conditional</animation>

And, I think, by that means solve the problem.
Or do any of you have any other solution?

Nope, as the listitem itself doesn't know that information.

I've been having little time lately, but have not forgotten the idea...
If I can get some things together I'll resume my work soon.

I read a month or two back that he was going to have another look at it now that Font kerning is possible in the skin engine.
Im keen on this skin as well. Looks damn impressive, and stands out from the crowd
