    Hi all,

    here is my experimental build of the Browse The Web plugin with "call with parameter". Because I'm not programmer, pleas be inguldent. I changed only parts with parameters reading and processing. All other known issues I didn't address and I won't continue to develop on plugin. It is Kroko's work ;).

    If you want to test it, I recommend that you back up official build before use the experimental one.



    For the inspiration I attached source modul with my changes too.

    Here is an example of the using in the MovingPictures plugin GUI - IMDb movie page showing, IMDb Id (ttxxxxxx) is stored in the #MovingPictures.SelectedMovie.imdb_id variable:

    <control>
    <description>Movie Info</description>
    <type>button</type>
    <id>66624</id>
    <label>IMDb Info</label>
    <hyperlink>54537689</hyperlink>
    <hyperlinkParameter>http://www.imdb.com/title/#MovingPictures.SelectedMovie.imdb_id</hyperlinkParameter>
    <onup>66623</onup>
    <onright>6</onright>
    <ondown>66621</ondown>
    </control>

    JiRo.

    kroko, thanks for this plugin, it's very useful; I hope you keep developing it.

    The only thing I'd put on the wish-list is a virtual mouse mode to control the mouse cursor with the arrows on the remote; at the moment if you want to e.g. start an embedded flash video, there's no way to do it with the remote, unless I missed something.

    userjan thanks for that, that looks like it might do the trick. I hadn't come across that, I'll check it out.

    This will not help if you have Browse The Web set to browse by ID (where each link gets unique ID and you can follow the link by typing the number on keyboard/remote). In such a case the mouse is disabled, so even if you have actual mouse connected, you will not be able to play flash video or anything similar as you cannot click on any link/control.

    We need to have a way to enable the mouse even if browse by ID is active.

    Hi, I just noticed that with mediaportal 1.1.3, the mpeinstaller shows that a new version is available (0.3.0), but that one doesn't work in 1.1.3!

    Also, when I select 0.2.7 from the mpeinstaller, it downloads 0.3.0, so there is probably an incorrect reference somewhere. The 0.2.7 download from the first post worked ok.

    I had the same problem - fix in code is imho just one line - patch attached.
    @diskeeper, can you confirm this fixes the problem for you too?
    Would be nice, if this could be included for future versions.
    Thanks,
    Guzzi

    Re: AW: [Plugin] Browse The Web / Webbrowser

    This is a workaround but core of the problem is that base.OnAction isn't called. I'm not sure why kroko decided not to call base method since I couldn't see anything wrong after adding it. If really needed, base call can be skipped for certain actions with return.
