Release skin helper service
Here's another set of colors for the color picker. I needed darker colors for my background, but instead of adding another row I switched to a smaller set of colors. Also speeds up the loading of the textures, I don't notice any delay even on first run.

This one is very classy but for ome users maybe not enough colors ?

Idea that just popped into my head: Maybe it's a good thing if you can have multiple color profiles/schemes.
So you can have multiple color.xml files and select from one ?

For example "blue tints" will show all blue related colors etc

Something I should consider coding or not that great idea ?

You're reading my mind ? Cool

EDIT : With the ability to set a default one at first skin launch ? Or a bool for default ?

Might be difficult to display properly if you have one container size and varying numbers of colors in each color.xml?

I like the looks of the color table with 500+ colors, but for my purposes the smaller color table (~100 colors) has all of the ones I need. Like you say though, some will likely want more.

Would it be possible to pass the header label to the script when calling the color picker? Something like...

Code:
RunScript(script.skin.helper.service,action=colorpicker,skinstring=highlight,label="Header label")

I work around this with a variable that displays the appropriate header label based on a skin setting.

Thanks again for the script, it opens up so many opportunities.

I wanted to change my view of IPTV simple client by following links here:

are you able to make some video tutorial please?

All of the information needed is in the readme linked in the first post.

Hi im85288

i am absolutelly lost in all those commands I need to update inside .xml files.
Will be more than helpfull if someone could do something like HOW-TO video guide. We as a non programer people do not have chance to follow up on many of these threads.
I konw that this might be a video of 20=30 minutes but any first steps would be more than helpfull

thank you for understanding

I think you better install (or wait for) a skin that has this already implemented or a prebuilt mod.
This is not likely something you want to do yourself if you don't have any experience developing skins.

At the moment there are a number of (WIP) skins that already support the PVR artwork feature.

I managed to instal aeon MQ6 but as I saw here there is no info about when will be published inside KODI. Also I am not sure if this skin helper is already inside ( I have 2.4.0 version).
Could you send me message?

Hi Marcel.

Would it be possible to add these info labels:

Window(Home).Property(SkinHelper.ListItemAudioStreams.Count)
Window(Home).Property(SkinHelper.ListItemLanguages.Count)
Window(Home).Property(SkinHelper.ListItemSubtitles.Count)

And also
Window(Home).Property(SkinHelper.RecentMusicBackground)

Thanks so much in advance! Smile

Cheers
Gade

I think I've found a solution for that ;-)

I have just added support for multiple color palettes to the script. You can specify multiple color palettes, open the picker with a specific palette and have a different itemlayout for each palette. Off course it's backwards compatible with the old method.
As a start I included the 2 color palettes created by you by default in the picker so now you can switch between those two.
Have a look at the updated readme how this stuff works, it's pretty cool.

Also I have added a header= parameter to define the header label yourself. Make sure to give the header label the ID 1.

Sounds cool, will check it out when I finish what I'm working on. Wink

Update: Just tested the new method to pass the header label, works great! Also removed my custom skin/colors to test the default layouts, very impressive. Thanks again, I can't believe I waited so long to try this script out. Smile

Marcel, I don't know if that is really true, but two users said that since one of the latest update,
