Release skin helper service
(2016-03-19, 01:30)Edworld Wrote: This issue is back with version 1.0.66

Can you please grab the latest version from Git ? The issue should now be resolved (for good).
Once confirmed working I will request another pull to the Kodi repo.

It seems some movies have multiple entries for either poster or background so i was wondering if it is in anyway possible to show a select dialog of all the posters / backgrounds so the user can choose which to download to animatedgifs and then the calls use the cached image?

Hmm, currently I have implemented this teh "dumb" way by just checking online if that image exists.
I believe there was also an json service available for this animated posters thing ? If so, I can make it a bit more intelligent :-)

Code:

working inside lists please.

Not possible. The window properties are for the focused listitem only. Besides that, Kodi doesn't allow window props to be used inside an item layout.

We're discussing here about options to provide the properties in a broader aspect to the skin, maybe by requesting some changes to the Kodi json api to set custom properties to the db.

when user choose custom color, with ARGB values that are not comes with the skin, the script creates this color file in the extras\color, so far so good.
but what happens when the skin is getting updates? all the files in the extras folder are overwritten with the original one.
so after updates, the skin will have missing color files, am I right?
actually - It kind of rare that user create their own colors, because the palette are pretty big, but just in case..

No, the script checks if the images are present. If not, they will be recreated.
Besides that, any images inside the extras\color are mainly delivered by the skinner himself.

etc


Maybe some users have their artwork scraped into a different folder? In that case I can add an additional setting to look for the artwork in that custom folder.

It would be great if that would be possible. I have been using an artwork folder on a network share for the ArtistSlideShow script and it would be great if the Helper Service could make use of the same share. The folder structure is like the one above, off course without the Album folders.

Are you sure that you grabbed the latest version from Git ? All issues you mention are exactly the ones I fixed yesterday.
Make sure that you don't have a duplicate of the addon installed in the addons folder please

Strange! It's working fine on my setup... One question however... Are you using the widgetcontainer property for your home widgets ?
Do you clear that property when leaving the home window ?
<onload>ClearProperty(SkinHelper.WidgetContainer,Home)</onload>
Reply
question to all...

Which skins are utilizing the forced views feature of the script ?
Someone asked me today who wants to use it with my new spotify addon.

Yup, I'm using view selector only at the moment, still WIP as some users having problems with playlists and I am still trying to correctly reverse engineer some strange visibility conditions in views to make sure views.xml has the correct type settings. I do plan to implement forced views but no yet as it seems there is a lot of work connected to implementing it from what I've read.

@Marcel, did you see my debug extract?. I'll attach a full log late just incase that may help you.

+1 would be very nice, if we could use all the Art we downloaded with CdArtManager/ArtistSlideshow

HI marcel your skin helper script is awesome!! Thank you Smile
in your free time I have small issue in the backup function
the problem is with backgrounds that I choose from "resources" addons
I opened the zip that the script creates, and I see the relevant backgrounds there
but in the restore process - they are not restored
and the default backgrounds of my skin is apply
instead of the backgrounds i select from the "resources" addons
