    Hi Vanessa

    I have removed the following code from common.windows.xml

    and this has removed the #header.label from all the screens My Tv, My Music etc. its the first bit of code ive ever changed so am really unsure if this will effect anything else,

    so far so good but would love to hear from you if this is ok or not,

    maybe there was an option i overlooked in the settings to remove the labels but i could not find it

    <control>
    <type>label</type>
    <id>1</id>
    <posX>201</posX>
    <posY>71</posY>
    <label>#header.label</label>
    <font>font14</font>
    <align>left</align>
    <textcolor>ff283b45</textcolor>
    </control>

    <control>
    <type>label</type>
    <id>1</id>
    <posX>200</posX>
    <posY>70</posY>
    <label>#header.label</label>
    <font>font14</font>
    <align>left</align>
    <textcolor>Black</textcolor>
    </control>

    I think it is the only way to do this because it's skin related.

    And another small DIY addition. For those working at larger distance from monitor/are looking only at a glance while playing music:
    I've increased the font sizes and cover image in the my music / now playing view. (and changed the order of the elements to match my sense of logic).

    This label “#header.label†is called in the other XML files when you import it.

    This is done so when the skinner is coding it lowers the about of information that has to enter.

    Instead of typing this code in every XML file u wish to use it.


    <Text>
    <control>
    <type>label</type>
    <id>1</id>
    <posX>201</posX>
    <posY>71</posY>
    <label>XXXX</label>
    <font>font14</font>
    <align>left</align>
    <textcolor>ff283b45</textcolor>
    </control>

    <Shadow>
    <control>
    <type>label</type>
    <id>1</id>
    <posX>200</posX>
    <posY>70</posY>
    <label>XXXX</label>
    <font>font14</font>
    <align>left</align>
    <textcolor>Black</textcolor>
    </control>


    You simply import it.

    <define>#XXXX</define>
    <import>common.window.xml</import>


    it will ripple thought the other files when ever it is called. It will not effect anything thing else that is not related to the label e.g. as you have removed the ‘title/header’ it will not change the text in the menu below it.

    If your removing the “title†label form common.window.xml you should also remove “ <define>#header.label:XXXX</define> †from the other file. As when the “title†is called it goes looking for it in the common.window.xml and comes back with nothing. This may cores some complication.


    Go here for skinning related development.

    Hi there,

    Vanessa, 3DMP is really great !
    I like the alternative to the "Single line and small icon" you proposed.

    About the thumbs view for music and movies, could they be displayed without description above each of them, but for the selected only ?
    This would allow to show bigger or more thumbs at a time, for better navigation.

    Below some views as eg. They are from Meedio [peace] and I noticed next MCE will proceed the same way.

    What do you think people ?

    PS. Sorry for bad resizing (bad tools at work)

  • About The Project

    The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

    In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.

             

  • Support MediaPortal!

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.

    Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
