Control.SetFocus(id,position) is not working for panel?
#1
In MyMusicNav.xml I have writen:
<onload condition="isVisible(51)">Control.SetFocus(51,2)</onload>

That means I want that when the songs are visible in list panel container , highlight 2nd item of list.
2nd item is 1st song in the view because 1st item is ".." .

I want instead of ".." the item next to ".." should be highlighted when ever the window opens.

Control.SetFocus(51,2) is not working.

51 is id of panel container.

how can I do that?

Thanks of help.

Use this instead so it only moves when focused on the Parent Folder item -

Code:
<onload condition="StringCompare(ListItem.Label,..) + Control.IsVisible(51)">Control.Move(51,1)</onload>

You do know that this is going to screw with people who actually go and turn off the show parent items thing right ? not to mention when you go to full screen playback and back again you will lose the current focus

Then how can we do it Jezz_x?

I don't understand why this function is not working ?
Control.SetFocus(51,2)
is it for any other purpose?


Thanks for Help.

Forgot something ? Just to be sure ... maybe ?

PHP Code:
<onload condition="Control.IsVisible(51)">Control.SetFocus(51,2)</onload

It'll only work if CommonRootView_Info is the first view you see when opening Music, if drill down deeper into the folders (ie Albums, Songs) it wont because MyMusicNav is already open.

I agree but it is not working even first time when CommonRootView_Info is the first view.

Also when drill down deeper into the folders (ie Albums, Songs) I want it to work in the same way ,
this will not work here because of <onload> because window is already loaded but then there should be some other way.

Thank You.

Best to forget about it and let the user decide if they want to hide the parent folder item altogether.

Why do you want to force users to have ".." hidden? You shouldn't do that, everyone can disable it in the settings if he doesn't need it. Just add this to your skin description that you have your own buttons for going back and users should hide parent folder items if they want the best skin experience.

OK `Black .

Oh wait this thread was not about hiding the ".." item but , it was about how to highlight the first actual item when user enters the window.
instead of highlighting ".." the item next to ".." should be focused / highlighted .
If ".." is not there (hidden by user) no problem , the first actual item should be focused always.

Please help , I need it.
