@offbyone this would be really amazing if we can build a link between VS designer and MP2 for rendering! This feature already exists, inside SkinHelperPlugin there is a "ReloadSkin" action, which maps following shortcuts: public static readonly Key RELOAD_SCREEN_KEY = Key.F3; public static readonly Key RELOAD_THEME_KEY = Key.F4...

Is there a real definition what is "latest"? In MP2 I list the newest recently imported items. Depending on media type, there are many possible date information available, let's give a few examples: The MediaAspect.ATTR_RECORDINGTIME contains a quite common date: for Audio/Movies there is the "release year". For TV recordings it's...

Nice going Morph and Wiz!!! Extra points for an option to have the scroll bar fade in/out only when the user is moving around. Keeps the view clean but of course some designers/users may like it always on.

Although i really like some of the splashscreens posted, but when i boot my system (while the room is dark) some splashscreens are just to bright for my eyes.

Sorry, my fault ;) The "menu items" are defined by so call workflow actions. For SlimTV you'll find them in https://github.com/MediaPortal/MediaPortal-2/blob/dev/MediaPortal/Incubator/SlimTvClient/Skin/default/workflow/SlimTvClient-actions.xml#L10.

You can create a theme. For that you just replace the Skin files you want to Change and leave the rest in place. The wiki is a good place to start on learning MP1 skinning.

I also prefer to have a consistent screen layout (means not to hide labels if content is missing). While we can implement fallback texts already using MultiBinding, it would cause a lot of (XAML-)overhead for each label. A new "FallbackContent" property would be easier. Another, probably the architectural best way, is a converter...

Not sure if its related or not but the TranslateTransform values will not parse at my end because of using ',' instead of '.' <TranslateTransform X="0,8" Y="0,5"/> <!-- parse error -> <TranslateTransform X="0.8" Y="0.5"/> But perhaps this is just a localization thing between German and English cultures

Thanks for feedback. The "window buttons" are missing indeed, I left them away in the beginning and did not re-add them again.
