Hi,
very nice skin, love it !
it give me the taste to try skinning and code python scripts !
So for my first shot, i try to add some informations that Xbmc doesn't show : in artist view i would like to see how many albums have an artist and a preview of these albums.
This is what i get (the artist view isn't very beautiful but i get what i want )
Here are some screenshot :

i can share my script for those who wants to give it a try Smile

Bien joué mec Wink

IMHO, i think the small artists thumbnails as well as artists logos don't fit in well with the skin general design. I made a quick mockup of the way i see it ... the two images on artists page (big thumbnail + fanart) have always bothered me, i think the available space coud be used more efficiently. Something like this :

Hi, I am a big fan of your skin.

But can you tell me what's wrong with my episode view? It's really hard to navigate through the season only by the plot information. Angel

Here is my script.
It count the albums from an artist and return 9 cd covers
download script
This script is an alpha version Smile

To call this script from the skin :
i'm using the onfocus evenement with a delay of 1 second
PHP Code:
<control type="button" id="60">
                            <
description>Run</description>
                            <
width>1</width>
                            <
height>1</height>
                            <
label>-</label>
                            <
font>-</font>
                               <
onright>701</onright>
                            <
onfocus>XBMC.AlarmClock(RechercheAlbums,XBMC.RunScript(script.nbalbumsartist=$INFO[ListItem.Artist]),00:00:01,silent)</onfocus>
                            <
visible>Container.Content(Artists)</visible>
                        </
control
Then you can show up the count of albums :
PHP Code:
<control type="label">
      <
label>$INFO[Window(Home).Property(albumsnumber)]</label>
                    <
posx>490</posx>
                    <
posy>350</posy>
                    <
height>30</height>
                    <
width>150</width>
                    <
font>Home_numbers</font>
                    <
align>center</align>
          <
visible>Container.Content(Artists)</visible>
        </
control
and the cd covers :
PHP Code:
<control type="image">
                  <
posx>365</posx>
                  <
posy>458</posy>
                  <
width>75</width>
                  <
height>75</height>
                  <
aspectratio>keep</aspectratio>
                  <
texture background="true">$INFO[Window(Home).Property(albums1)]</texture>
                  <
visible>Container.Content(Artists)</visible>
            </
control>
            <
control type="image">
                  <
posx>440</posx>
                  <
posy>458</posy>
                  <
width>75</width>
                  <
height>75</height>
                  <
aspectratio>keep</aspectratio>
                  <
texture background="true">$INFO[Window(Home).Property(albums2)]</texture>
                  <
visible>Container.Content(Artists)</visible>
            </
control

Hope this help
