Question  How to de-activate (get rid) of the info popup transition effect in Slide View
Post: #1
Howdy,

I was wondering if somebody could point me to where to look in order to de-activate the transition effect on the info popup in Slide View,

(when you blowse your library in Slide View the info text zone (with studio/director/writer etc...) dissapear to show only the fanart/backdrop during 3/4 seconds before showing it back, I would love to remove this effect)

Thanks a lot!

in View-Slide.xml, remove these two lines:
Code:
<animation effect="zoom" start="640,0,1,720" end="0,0,1280,720" time="200" delay="2000">Visible</animation>
<animation effect="zoom" start="0,0,1280,720" end="0,360,1280,1" time="200">Hidden</animation>


and change:
Code:
<visible>Control.IsVisible(596) + !Window.IsVisible(VideoFiles) + !stringcompare(ListItem.Label,..) + !Control.IsVisible(7003) + !Control.IsVisible(7004)</visible>

to:
Code:
<visible>Control.IsVisible(596) + !Window.IsVisible(VideoFiles) + !stringcompare(ListItem.Label,..)</visible>

And that did the trick! Thanks so much Smile

Perhaps in a future T! release we could find a way to incorporate it in T!'s options,
I remember e.g. that in Alaska they used a check button for the zoom transition to be able to activate/deactive it on the fly (in the floating left side menu)

i had a previous request to hide the info all together, you prefer to have it visible all the time, while others may like things as they are.

i can understand, from a users point of view, it would be nice to be able to control these kind of things...but from a skinning point of view, it's a nightmare.

too many options will clutter the code to the extend things will become a giant mess and hardly maintainable by anyone.


so yeah, options are nice and there's plenty of them available in T!
but i'd like to limit them somewhat. making every animation in the skin optional is simply no option.



..and in my experience, no matter how many options you offer, people will always want more. when i started skinning, i've quickly learned there's no way to please anyone and i'm fine with that.
so if you want to customize the skin to a large extend, there's no other option than to get your hands dirty and mod the skin yourself. ;-)


cheers mate.
