The skin creates a sort of template container that defines the layout of the content (e.g. positioning and size of image and label controls, and animations etc.). So the skin basically defines where everything goes on the screen -- e.g. what textures/info/artwork will be shown at what coordinates and what size (I'm simplifying but this the basic idea). The skin uses info labels which are filled by Kodi relating to each different item in the list container -- e.g. the skin will use ListItem.Art(poster) in an image control and Kodi will fill the infolabel with the path to the appropriate poster artwork for each item in the list, or say ListItem.Genre which is a text string that kodi fills with all the genres for that particular item and so on. Kodi fills all these different info labels based upon whatever the content is for that particular widget container -- So it might be from the library database if it is a smart playlist or library path (which is saved from data pulled from online websites like imdb or themoviedb). Or it might come from an add-on like Skin Helper Widgets or Youtube -- in this case, the addon tells Kodi how to fill all the info labels. Does that make sense?
yes, it makes perfect sense, in fact it also serves as a great reminder that i don't know what the hell i'm doing when i make edits, ha ha... nonetheless, thank you very much for taking the time to explain, i find this stuff very interesting and hope to be able to roll up my sleeves when time permits and really learn it.

"jurialmunkey Wrote:2. There isn't really a way in this skin to define sort order. I do have sort order options in Horizon, but it was a lot of work getting it to work correctly and at the moment I'm really busy so I don't have time to port those features over to fuse.
was afraid of that... i've looked around in py files and the databases using sqlite but didn't across anything that looked, to my untrained eyes, that it would do the trick, doesn't seem like it would be such a tough edit/fix, assuming your weren't interested in creating a context menu toggle that would give you different options, but instead a file edit that you wanted to just set once.

"jurialmunkey Wrote:3. You might need to make a menu item for it in skin settings > home customisation dialog. The skin uses skin shortcuts addon, so the menus are shared with other skins and are fully customisable, so it is possible that things get moved around rather than being in the default place.
thanks for the suggestion, i'll give it a try.

"jurialmunkey Wrote:4. Sort order shouldn't be overridden. Double check that the smart playlist is sorting correctly when you open it in the library.
will do, thanks!

a couple of more items for you or the group:

1. what is the "force native appearance" setting in the extendedinfo dialog supposed to do? i never used it with estuary so i don't know, doesn't seem to do anything with fuse.

2. are flags supposed to appear to the far right on the extendedinfo infobar or infobar sublabel as they do in dialogvideoinfo / library views? the area is blank/empty when i view extended info.

3. in "videos > default set action" i have it set to "show information" which is what i want, i.e. when i select a movie poster i want info to display, and it does.... but from the info screen when i select the play button i just want the movie to play from beginning, i don't want to be prompted whether i want to resume it or start from the beginning, how can i make this happen?

again, thanks very much!

jurialmunkey,

Still loving the skin ... it my "keeper" ... Smile

I noticed you use a LONG press to change audio on video files

I would love to be to able to jump to letter (SHIFT+A) "stylee" from a long press but this keymap doesn't work .... any ideas ??

<keyboard>
<Z mod="longpress">SHIFT-Z</Z>
</keyboard>


the longpress part works as I tried a MUTE option for longpress Z and it worked but SHIFT-Z did not neither did SHIFT+Z

looking at "NextLetter" no but its not clear how you would pass a letter via a Keyamp .... NextLetter[r] Huh?

there seems to be a bug when playing youtube vids from the extendedinfo window...info> youtube > pick a youtube vid and it begins to play, closing it returns you to the info page but the animated plot is gone and selecting back from there crashes kodi, complains about expecting to find a 305 control iirc.

i get a bunch of instances of the following warning in the log file, and the widgets that i've set up in skin settings are slow to load, slow to display posters, i get the "content loading..." message for what seems to be a long time, are these two things related? when i use estuary there never seems to be a delay, the posters are just there, it's as if estuary caches the widget data but fuse doesn't? also, if i play a movie and then close it, the widgets seem to reload, again showing the "content loading..." message, it's pretty frustrating and takes away from the fantastic fuse skin, is there any way to fix this prob? my movies are stored on an external drive that's hard-wired to my network, i'm using windows 10/64, kodi 17... i've tried using kodi 18/64 but nothing changes, i get the same warning  messages in the log and widgets are still very slow to load.

Hi guys, just a heads up that I've pushed a new version to github master branch (Jarvis).

This is a big change in the way widgets are handled - I've switched to using skinshortcuts templates. This means we now have persistent widgets that don't need to reload everytime you switch menu items.

Also, the weather widget now displays a forecast in the widget box in Classic home mode, similar to how the weather widget is in Vertical.

@jurialmunkey


after doing a kodi forum search i cam across the above old post of yours in the artic zephyr thread which seems to address exactly what i've been experiencing, slow reloading of widgets every time i switch menu items and when i return to the home page from the settings page or movie screen, i don't have the "persistent widgets" that you mention, is there any way that i can fix this on my end? thanks!

1. if i have show info selected in options, when i click a movie poster i get the info page and from there i can select play to play the movie, perfect... but when i'm playing the movie and then close it, i'm returned to the widget page not the movie info page... how i can i return to the info page? is there an easy code edit?

2. love the widgets but they're too slow to populate, is there a way to disable auto refresh, a code edit?

3. is there a way to have the skin display the movie library when kodi is first launched? not a widget to set up to display the library content, but the actual library with the options menu in the bottom left hand corner?
