Full Version: New Static Vertical Home Focus Position
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I've been testing the new static vertical home screen and like it very much. However, the screen focuses on the top spot on the list as opposed to the classic middle spot as currently used. Can we have the focus position in the middle as before on the new static vertical home? If not, please point out how to possibly make it happen as I can not figure it out on my own.

OK, I've had another go, Can you try here from here:

It should now be easier to modify the scroll setting by just changing the <movement> value in the StaticSettings include

Tried it out and am getting the same result. Providing the edited Includes_Vertical_Home.xml for you to see if I added the changes correctly.

Nearly :-), line 686 should be a fixedlist not list control, remove line 687 and lines 735-782
Finally got this to work following your guideline. And it works really well for my purposes regarding the focus position. I've only used 11 items on the Amber vertical home that was altered to stay in the static position in the past. After further testing, there is an issue with the new static vertical home as it relates to adding more than 11 items to its menu. I'll try to explain a little better below.

All is well with only 11 menu items and the focus being in the middle after reloading the skin.

Adding a 12th item (Favorites) and all as expected after reloading the skin.

The issue arises when you scroll down to the last item (Settings) of the menu. Settings seemingly disappears but is fully functional for entering within or the sideblade as well.

Hmm, could you try with reducing the movement value to 5 in the VerticalSettings include and see if that helps?

Changing the movement to 5 had no affect. It looks as though it is not scrolling down properly. In other words, Plex should disappear from the top spot and Settings should show up properly highlighted at the bottom.
I take back my prior statement that changing the movement to 5 did not work. It does actually make the static vertical home fully functional. I mistakenly thought you meant line #700 when what you really meant was line #593 of the "StaticSettings in the Includes_Vertical_Home.xml. My apology for the misunderstanding. Great work on bringing an official static vertical home to Amber and look forward to its release.
Excellent, thanks for testing I'll send a pull to jester for the changes.

Done. https://github.com/jester-xbmc/skin.amber/pull/52
