Hello,

what's the best way to use this script? Right now, I've the execution in Home.xml, with the <onload> command. Is there a better way?

Thanks a lot for any help!
I think most of us are using this -

Code:
<onload condition="IsEmpty(Window(Home).Property(Watchlist_Running))">RunScript(script.watchlist,...)</onload>
ok, great! Thanks for the additional condition. I was using it without it.

you should stick with what you had.
the script itself will (and should!) check if it's already running.

It just checks to see if it's already running in which case there's no need to run it again.

user uses Transparency!, which runs the script with limit=3

next, the user switches to xeebo.
xeebo checks if the script is already running, which it is, so doesn't run it again

result: user only sees 3 watchlist items on the xeebo home screen.

Wont that be the same even without the running check though if the script checks if it's running itself?

EDIT: And if it checks that it's already running how do we force an update?

nope, scripts are smart ;-)

the script will detect if there's already another instance of it running,
it will signal the first instance to quit, then start a new instance with the params you've passed to it.

Forgot about that - old age!

Anyway I've updated my original post to include this info and the readme.

Thanks ronie.

Trying to debug a problem I've got, and thought i'd ask here as maybe? the script is part of the problem.

All working no problem under win7, but with openelec/linux I am missing watchlist album thumbs.

I know case sensitivity effects linux and I've got an unusual item list all of which needs going over but am trying to save a bit of work Wink and was wondering if anyone else had any issues with linux and album thumbs.
