Full Version: Help Customizing XML to include Kiosk mode in Confluence
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I love confluence and the speed (have Fusion system). The only thing I need to add is the Kiosk mode. I've found the old XML stuff but when I edit the customSettings file and MyVideoNav files to include that addtional code for the extra radio button...it doesn't do anything. My skin functions the same AND I dont see the button there.

I'm assuming things have changed since that guide was made. Can someone help clarify how to make this small alteration?

Also yes I've tried the Mod from XBMCNerds. Its not as smooth yet and still under development.
This MOD is as smooth as the original Confluence and what do you mean with under development?
In certain ways, every skin is work in progress...
And this skin is really really solid and stable

You might check the commit to see what's going on:

Thanks for the link to that GIT. Nice notes in there.

I like the MOD you made and thought it was just as fast as Confluence but when I ran it on a Fusion system I noticed lower library performance compared to OG confluence. I dunno, maybe it was a fluke or something. In combination with the Movie running list and ONLY needing Kiosk mode as an extra it seemed cleaner to just try and add in Kiosk.
On a side note do I have to do anything to refresh the customsettings.xml file? I am running in portable mode and editing Confluence files directly from the Confluence add-on directory. I make the identical changes (minus the line number) to confluence OG and I never see an adjustment to the SYstem>Skin>General menu.
Here is my customSettings alteration:

</control>
<control type="radiobutton" id="102">
<width>750</width>
<height>40</height>
<font>font13</font>
<label>31103</label>
<textcolor>grey2</textcolor>
<focusedcolor>white</focusedcolor>
<texturefocus>MenuItemFO.png</texturefocus>
<texturenofocus>MenuItemNF.png</texturenofocus>
<onclick>Skin.ToggleSetting(Show_SlideShow_Paused)</onclick>
<selected>!Skin.HasSetting(Show_SlideShow_Paused)</selected>
</control>
<control type="radiobutton" id="103">
<width>750</width>
<height>40</height>
<font>font13</font>
<label>Enable Kiosk Mode (disable slideout menu)</label>
<textcolor>grey2</textcolor>
<focusedcolor>white</focusedcolor>
<texturefocus>MenuItemFO.png</texturefocus>
<texturenofocus>MenuItemNF.png</texturenofocus>
<onclick>Skin.ToggleSetting(kiosk)</onclick>
<selected>!Skin.HasSetting(kiosk)</selected>
</control>

<control type="radiobutton" id="112">
<width>750</width>
<height>40</height>
<font>font13</font>
<label>31104</label>
<textcolor>grey2</textcolor>
<focusedcolor>white</focusedcolor>
<texturefocus>MenuItemFO.png</texturefocus>
<texturenofocus>MenuItemNF.png</texturenofocus>
<onclick>Skin.ToggleSetting(WindowedTrailer)</onclick>
<selected>Skin.HasSetting(WindowedTrailer)</selected>
</control>
OK, now I get the menu. Had to switch skins and when I came back to Confluence my menu option was there. Mod didn't take but now at least the custom settings is working
Best way is to map a button in keyboard.xml with the command "ReloadSkin()"

Then you can press the button and see the changes directly...

Also it's worth activating debugging in Addon.xml of the skin...then you see which part/control/button has focus...this helps a lot...
Just to get back to speed...running this on an atom 525 and 330 before...didn't have problems or slowdowns...
Good info, thanks again Max!
Is this mod working on the Frodo confluence skin?
You can apply the changes in the Frodo version of XBMC...
Also I'm working on a new MOD, which will have kiosk mode
