How to check if Smartplaylist got Files? (visible for Menuitem)
#1
Hello

is there a Way to check if a Smartplaylist got Files/Content to set the Visible according to this?

PHP Code:
<item id="21">
    <
description>Documentary</description>
    <
label>31961</label>
    <
icon>special://skin/backgrounds/documentary.jpg</icon>
    
<thumb>$INFO[Skin.String(Home_Custom_Back_Docu_Folder)]</thumb>
    <
onclick>XBMC.ActivateWindow(10025,special://skin/playlists/Documentarys/Dokus.xsp,return)</onclick>
    
<visible>!Skin.HasSetting(HomeMenuNoDocuButton) + ???</visible>
</
item

would like to show the Menuitem just if "special://skin/playlists/Documentarys/Dokus.xsp" got Files in it, acording to "Container.Content(movies)"

Think about a Stringcompare or something. But at the Moment no clue what could do the job.

Regards.

EDIT:
O.K. Propably i miss something Simple & Stupid?

i try it with "Library.HasContent(special://skin/playlists/Documentarys/Dokus.xsp)" as i do it in the Widget
and i try it with "!IsEmpty(special://skin/playlists/Documentarys/Dokus.xsp)"

both with no Luck. (Item wont show up!)

Did think about a Syntax mistake and did try also
PHP Code:
<visible>!Skin.HasSetting(HomeMenuNoDocuButton) + Library.HasContent(playlist=special://skin/playlists/Documentarys/Dokus.xsp)</visible> 

no clue

EDIT2:

Just beacause i feel Funny i try also:

PHP Code:
StringCompare(playlist=special://skin/playlists/Documentarys/Dokus.xsp.NumItems,IntegerGreatherThan(NumItems,0) 

lol. but as you shurely guess - No Luck.

If you use gotham you could achieve this with a workaround. Load the playlist in a dummy list id="xxx" with
Code:
<content>special://skin/playlists/Documentarys/Dokus.xsp</content>
and then use visible condition IntegerGreatherThan(Container(xxx).NumItems,0) in item id 21. As far as I know there's no other way of knowing if that playlist has items on the home screen.

Yes that's the only way but beware that depending on the size of the playlist and performance of the system there could be a delay of a couple of seconds.

Thanks for your replay

Did try to follow your suggestion. But got some Problems while trying to generate a "dummy list" couldn't figuere out how this should look like, and where to place.

my attempts:

PHP Code:
1.try
        <
control>
            <
description>DummyList</description>
            <
type>listcontrol</type>
            <
id>123</id>
            <
content>special://skin/playlists/Documentarys/Dokus.xsp</content>
        
<control>
        
        
2.try
        <
control type="list" id="123">
            <
description>DummyList</description>
            <
content>special://skin/playlists/Documentarys/Dokus.xsp</content>
        
<control>
        
        
3.try
        <
control type="list"id="123">
            <
description>DummyList</description>
            <
visible>true</visible>
            <
viewtype>list</viewtype>
            <
itemlayout width="250" height="29">
            </
itemlayout>
            <
focusedlayout height="29" width="250">
            </
focusedlayout>
            <
content>special://skin/playlists/Documentarys/Dokus.xsp</content>
        
<control
get allways a Blackscreen as soon as i try to reload the skin.


EDIT:

Got it!
PHP Code:
!IsEmpty(Window(Home).Property(PlaylistLastMovieMenu3.1.Title)) 

Propaby i was just thinking to complicated.
With this solution i have to Quit XBMC and restart as soon as i removed my Documentarys from the DB but as it looks now it works fine.

Try this:

Code:
            <control type="list" id="123">
                <posx>-100</posx>
                <posy>-100</posy>
                <width>100</width>
                <height>100</height>
                <itemlayout height="100" width="100"/>
                <focusedlayout height="100" width="100"/>
                <content>special://skin/playlists/Documentarys/Dokus.xsp</content>
            </control>

Will give it a try.
With the other solution (Edit aboth) it works also, all i have to do, is set the onload of the RA Script the right way.
(No Idea why i not earlyr think about this?? confused)
