Change backgrounds? - roysmith - 2020-05-07

Is there a way to change the backgrounds that appear above the menu bar on selection of each item,e.g.videos,addons etc.
Just to add,any explanation would have to be understood by a complete idiot.

@roysmith ,

No mate sorry, skin was not designed with that in mind.  I take it you are talking about the home menu shelves for either 'Horizontal' or 'Icon' home menu types, is that correct?  I am also assuming you are after something like fanart to appear as a backdrop to the current selected shelf item, correct?

Have only just got back into writing the skin as had only just brought a new home just before things went a bit crazy with Covid and have only just got caught up on maintenance list from the wife.  The idea of a fanart backdrop to the shelf appeals to me, so might add it to my current todo list.
