@FrostBox

I've successfully installed your add-on and I gotta say that it rocks! Thank you so much for coding this!

In your second post, the first screenshot (the Conan one), it looks like the actor image is clickable but I'm unable to reproduce this feature. Did I miss something in your instructions or is your skin that adds a blue border to the image? Don't pull your hair on this one as I don't think that's necessary but I'd like to be able to click it to get the actor biography.

However, I'm unable to make it so that when you click on the actor name you go directly to the actor biography just like with directors and writers. It just pop up the search result with movies from my library but I can't find what I'm doing wrong on this one. I tried to modify the code used for directors and writers but to no avail.

Hope you can help me with this issue!

Hi, Frost
I like add-on, but I'm user type and editing HTML is not what I can. Is there any easy way to install it. I can open it from Add-ons, but cant integrate to skin.
Regards.

xour skin must support the addon to click the actor thumb , like [WIP]Glass or Aeon Nox

@harybary

same answer for you. Your skin must support the addon, like [WIP]Glass or Aeon Nox

Eisi2005:

You mean only to install add-on and if skin support it, everything will be fine without adding code to XML's
I tried with Glass, Aeon Nox and Aeon SVN. Worked only on Aeon SVN. On other two, actor button not appears and I cant open info.
Is there a list of skins that support "Metadata Actors"add-on.

Got it working using fake hidden button using SetFocus and SendClick.
i try onload, but dialog hangs a little before open(probably some code mistake from my side), with hidden button is all fine.
here is what im working on, not finished don't judge XD

picture hosting

free picture hosting

got some issues,
Actor picture do not refresh to new one, if i pick a new one, it changes in xbmc actors info but not in addon info.
Dialog do not close and keeps in top if i have movie in db and select play in context menu. Trailer works fine.

Thx for this awnsome tool for xbmc,
now i just need learn python and make one for musicians discography XD.

keep up the good work.

Another thing i notice is if 2 movies have the same name just year diff, the script can't see the difference, it show that i have both.

Actor picture do not refresh to new one, if i pick a new one, it refresh in xbmc actors info but not in scrip actor info;
Dialog do not close and keeps in top if i have movie in db and select play in context menu. Trailer works fine.

or perhaps can you confirm if this issues happens with you too ?.

thx Smile
