I'm not a python developer, but I'd like to prevent the "Loading Directory - Retrieved X items" dialog from popping up.

Is there any place i can possibly comment out a line and prevent this from happening? Or is this function built into XBMC such that there's nothing we can do from a python plugin?

Thanks!

If you're wondering why --
I use the JSON-RPC interface to list content from plugins. Even though the listing is done via the JSON-RPC API call, the XBMC gui still shows the "loading directory" dialog. Since my json-rpc scripts run at any time, this dialog can pop up while i'm using XBMC for a different purpose = Annoying, especially since it's a modal dialog!

that's a shortcoming of design, where particular vfs directories show the dialog themself (such as the PluginDirectory). needs to be remedied i agree.

I know this is quite an old thread, but I'm also looking at how to do this?
