    Hi,

    I have no screenshot available so I used one found in this forum:



    https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/attachments/21-37-08-png.117482/

    How can I change the layout/content/design, etc. of a list item seen in the above screenshot?

    As you can see there is a channel logo, the current and next EPG info, etc. I searched in all XML skin files, but have not found any code for those items.

    TVMiniGuide.xml, TVMiniGuide.8rows.xml (or 3rows.xml) only contains information about the window not the listbox items.

    Regards,
    Sascha

    No, it only contains the window, not the items!

    For example I want to show the start time and end time of the current show. I don't want to show the green/red led in the right column, I want to resize the channel logo, etc.

    There is no information in any XML-file how to display the list item.

    Wow you are rude ! Yes it is there they are part of the listcontrol for example <PinIconWidth>45</PinIconWidth>
    <PinIconHeight>46</PinIconHeight>
    is the width and height of the led indicator.

    Sorry, if it had sound rude, that was not my aim!

    As said, in TVMiniGuide.8rows.xml or 3rows.xml there are no (!) information about the item, only about the whole window.

    How can I hide the "PinIcon" ?
    How can I change the icon? The png-files are not referenced here
    How can I hide the channel logo?
    How can I change the labels for the current and upcoming show?
    How can I display the beginning and end time of the current show?
    How can I remove the resource strings "Now:" and "Next:" ?

    As said, in none of the skin files I had found the template for the item.

    Best regards,
    Sascha

    Easiest thing to do for icon and logo is to render them offscreen with the x position, dirty but quick so you can see the effect it has.
    I think the icons in titan are tv_led.png or something like that.
    As for the rest of the current time tags etc you can find what you are looking for in the wiki in the skinning section.

    It´s in the two listcontrols - and you can´t change much because all is hardcoded.
    You cannot add start/end times, you cannot change any labels, you cannot delete the Now and Next labels.
    The rest is as wizard123 already explained within your post (how did that occur, Chris?).
    If you don´t want to see the status icons, deactivate it in MPConfig.

    Thanks! :)

    Is there any reason why it is hardcoded? Are there any plans to move the item template to the skin files, so that a skin is able to specify the item's appearance?

    Is the version 3.5 part of MP 1 or MP2 ? So will it released maybe with MP 1.5, 1.6, etc. ?
