Required skin changes for commonly used addons

if your skin ships with custom xml for any of these addons,
here's a list of the needed changes for gotham:

GlobalSearch
- script-globalsearch-contextmenu.xml now uses a single background image, with id="999".
- the positioning logic of the context menu has also changed, so double check if it still pops up where you want it to.

CU LRC Lyrics
- the script now runs as a service by default. if your skins auto-starts this addon, you can remove it as it's no longer needed.
users can disable this option if they want, so keep the button on the MusicOSD to manually start the addon.
- script-XBMC_Lyrics-main.xml, change <label>$LOCALIZE[SCRIPT0]</label> to <label>$ADDON[script.cu.lrclyrics 32199]</label>.
- script-XBMC_Lyrics-main.xml, remove the controls with id="100" and id="101". those are not used anymore.


other addon authors are welcome to post their required changes in this thread as well.


edit:
oh, the addons can be found here btw. http://mirrors.xbmc.org/addons/gotham/

2013-11-01 Remove 'reset settings' button

a few months ago, a 'reset settings' button was addon to SettingsCategory.xml
this change is now reverted.

if you already added it to your skin at this point, you can safely remove it.

2013-11-01 New control positioning method

this commit adds a new way to position controls on screen.
- <left>
- <top>
- <right>
- <bottom>
- <centerleft>
- <centertop>
- <centerright>
- <centerbottom>

Image

on top of that, it also allows you to use percentages instead of absolute values.

note: the old way (posx/posy/width/height) will still work in gotham
note: for label positioning to work correctly, defaults.xml should have no position defined for label.

for more info, please use the forum thread below.

As XBMC now tries to follow XML specifications, all XMLs without proper header are fully checked for correct UTF-8 chars.

Add correct header to all your XML files if you don't want additional parsing overhead.

Example of correct header:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

JM EDIT: This is optional for skinners, but I'd strongly suggest you change to doing this, as it will allow better localisation in future Smile

2013-11-12 New window: DialogSubtitles.xml

the xbmc subtitles addon will no longer be used in gotham.
instead, much of the code has been moved to xbmc core.

for this change, you need to:
- remove script.xbmc.subtitles from your addon.xml file
- rename script-XBMC-Subtitles-main.xml to DialogSubtitles.xml
- change the onclick of the subtitle button on the video osd to: ActivateWindow(SubtitleSearch)
- remove the code in skin settings where the user can select a subtitle addon
- rating images are now on a scale 0-5 (previously 0-10)
- add an extension to the flag images: https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/commit/eee7...5680ac8d5f
