Also great timing. Tonight I was planning on photoshopping a grid and putting includes everywhere. So you just saved me a lot of time.

I'll get on it soon.

Updated to include PVR windows and dialogs.

Just installed the latest Gotham beta and cloned the confluence folder, made a few alteratiosn and switched to the cloned confluence skin so i can start learning more / playing with a new idea i have lol.

Anyways I followed the instructions but have an issues and am still to green to see whats staring me in the face to figure it out Sad

- Place Custom_Overlay.xml in your skin's XML folder (ie 720p, 1080i, etc)
- Place the relevant debuggrid PNG in the skin's root folder and change the Custom_Overlay.xml debug grid controls if neccessary
- Place the keymap.xml in your /userdata/keymaps folder (or add the actions to your current one)

My keymap.xml looks like this

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<keymap>
    <global>
        <keyboard>
                       <F5>XBMC.ReloadSkin()</F5>
                       <F6>Skin.ToggleSetting(DebugGrid)</F6>
                       <F7>Skin.ToggleSetting(HideDebugInfo)</F7>
                       <F8>Notification(Testing 123,Hello world)</F8>
        </keyboard>
    </global>
</keymap>

The Reload, Grid, and Notification work as expected but the DebugInfo wont display i have no red and blue writing showing up.

What am i missing?
Old newbie trying his hardest to get his head around skinning lol, expect loads of questions :-)

It may be hard but the challenge of learning something new is fun :-)

Wow was something simple.

One day I'll get there and figure things like this out on my own. Well maybe lol

Sorry to revive this old thread, but I just built Kodi from master, and this custom_overlay.xml file is completely blocking the UI (apparently catching the keypress somehow), and generates a segfault when exiting.

Is there a more recent version of the debuggrid overlay available?

Thx, we´re investigating atm, a fix should follow in near future.

Anyway to get this to work on jarvis now? It helps a lot with graphic design for skinning and helps with location placement. Really would love to know how to get this working or a work around that works with all windows.
