Is it possible to add more pages to the settings window?
With a lot of settings the "general" view is quickly becoming cluttered, so it would be nice to add an "advanced" view.

has an example script that has categories in settings.xml

My question is that I have some items that the string can be quite long so how do I make it so when you edit a item that is too long, that it scrolls or the text in the edit box moves to the left as I cursor to the right to see what I am editing in the user interface?

The Editcontrol automatically does this. I suspect, however, that you're referring to the virtualkeyboard which does not use an editcontrol.

I am having a problem when I moved to the 10.0 BETA.. when I goto plugin/addon settings, not all of the settings are showing up. Again it is only in 10.0 (maybe a bug?)
The only items that show for editing or view on the addon setting dialogue are:
My code: (settings.xml)

Thanks. I did not see anything about int type
Seems that's the one that are not showing up. Any ideas?
I got it all working now w/ exception of the int type. Thanks for your help!

Anyway to specify a different font for a specific <setting> type="text" ?
settings not working at all - chippyash - 2010-09-09 20:20
this is r33532 running on Fedora
Selecting addon settings from context menu results in following from debug and no display of settings dialog
I can retrieve the setting using
dir = xbmcplugin.getSetting(self._pluginId,'gpoPath') - no problem
Do I need to initialise something in the script?
