    I'd like to integrate a sensor reading page for my home sensors. The current GUI elements are not very helpful..
    Maybe there is a general demand for a custom sized full graphic element...

    My proposal would be to generate a (GDI) window/label and pass a function/eventhandler as argument for the paint/invalidate event. So a plugin developer could design this area as a bare display area within the skin. I'm not sure if this is possible but this seems a simple and very flexible solution to me. But i'm not sure if Mediaportal is GDI enough for this...

    In addition one would need a function to force the redraw and/or a timer, that calls the user paint event every n ms.
