Full Version: Is there a wiki page on hard coded language strings

Like sometimes I see in others skins:

$LOCALIZE[102]

or

<label>1504</label>

but in strings.xml those numbers are nowhere to be found. I have a feeling I'm duplicating some strings that I do not need because they are hard coded...

Thx, for any replies
nothing should be hardcoded they should all be in here
https://xbmc.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot...trings.xml
if they are not then its an error or they probably got removed at some point
Ugh...I gotta clean up 60% of my strings. Thx, though
I like to keep the skin's strings.xml as well as XBMC's strings.xml both open in a Notepad++ window when developing so if I need to use a string I can easily search XBMC's then either search for it in the skin's or add it if needed. Makes skinning easier.

Tip: If you happen to use Notepad++ for developing, you can actually get side-by-side editing panes by right clicking the tab and selecting 'Move to Other View'. Useful for what I mentioned above.
