User inputting of video sources - wyrm - 2009-07-18 07:47
Hi guy's , I'm new to skinning so this is probably pretty obvious, but I have not been able to find anything on the wiki that seems to be what I am after. Anyway, I can use Skin.SetPath(string) to bring up a file dialog so that the user can specify a location of a directory (to get a script directory location for example). But how would I go about getting the user to specify a named video source?
What I am trying to do is to allow the user to set a default video source to use in file mode.
What I am using at the moment is
but I would like to generalise the above and replace 'Kids TV' with a user supplied (from a settings menu) source name instead.
how would I go about this?
Thanks for any help
