[BUG] DialogSelect name/ID not working
#1
Bug 
While trying to hide something if the select dialog was visible I stumbled upon this bug - using it's name (selectdialog) or ID (12000/2000) in a condition doesn't work.

The only way to use it at the moment is by using it's actual file name - DialogSelect.xml.

Thanks.

PS. There may well be other dialogs that don't work if there's an easier way of checking.

Weird, I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work, other than if the id reported by the dialog was wrong, which it doesn't appear to be.

not having actually tested this but a possible reason is sometimes when you make an error in the skin and do a skin reload to check you changes it can fudge up stuff even after you fix it and reload the skin again.

I don't know about you but I've made errors that result in the file lists all being populated in numbers instead of proper names and windows like Player controls not vanishing from the screen so this might be the issue or part of it ?

This is weird, trying it elsewhere works (name/ID) but in DialogVideoInfo only DialogSelect.xml does. Confused

How do you get the select dialog up while in dialogvideoinfo? If you provide some code to reproduce I'm happy to look at it.

I'm using it to get 'Landscape' and 'Banner' images so it gets loaded by the Artwork Downloader addon; could that be the reason?

Don't know if this is case with that particular addon (will check that later), but generally we can load DialogSelect.xml from python and gain more control over that dialog than just displaying list of items and picking one (f.e. making use of "get more" button in that dialog). In that case, even if DialogSelect.xml is used, window is not selectdialog/12000/2000 and You should use DialogSelect.xml.

Just confirmed that this is indeed our "problem" here. It's not a bug - it's just how it is. Btw. I like that bug icon near topic description - it looks so harmless Image Wink
