Filter Out Genres? - buges - 2009-05-08

Id like to make a control that filters out a couple of genres & the movies that apply to them. ie Action & Horror

Can this be done in the skin or is it at code level??

have played around with <visibile>! & Substring. for the list info but it does freaky things.

Use a smartplaylist.

Thanks JM

How do i execute a smartplaylist via a button, (just listing of the smartplaylist,not to start playing it)?

Hmm, good question. I *think* you can do it via ActivateWindow(VideoLibrary,<path_to_smart_playlist>) but I'm not 100 on that.

The path would be something like: special://profile/playlists/video/<name of playlist>.xsp

Give it a whirl anyway and see where you get to. If we have to make some code modifications to get this to work correctly we will.

Thanks again JM
