@garfield this thread is about a new feature currently being designed 

Oh, thanks for the explanation! I thought I have missed something.

And it is great that the new feature is being discussed in the thread I've started as a question. Wink

By the way, what is the filename of the icon currently used as the Boxsets node icon? I've met this icon in Video library but was unable to get its filename.

Actually I'd be rather thankful if one provide the list of Estuary node/item icons I could currently use for the custom nodes.

Consider yourself extremely blessed, it is rare for it to happen like this but I guess the time was ripe and @black_eagle volunteered. We are both working hard on this, a far from trivial feature as a first contribution to Kodi so black_eagle will need some beers/cheers at the end of it (which he may or may not want to share with his mentor/colleague by then).

These are skin specific so different skins will have different versions of icons. For estuary found on github https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/tree/master...uary/media

@garfield I re-used the 'sets' icon from the video library, which in Estuary, is called 'DefaultSets.png'.  It's very likely that it is named differently in other skins.

It is/was a feature that I have long felt is missing so (perhaps a little rashly!) I decided to give it a go, in spite of not knowing much c++ or Kodi's codebase at all.  Still, you don't learn if you don't try and as @DaveBlake has had the misfortune to find out, I can be very trying at times Big Grin

Thanks a lot, black_eagle!

I don't use other KODI skins than default, so DefaultSets.png suits my needs well. )

Just an FYI, skins must provide their own copies (originals or from a resource) of DefaultSets.png, but the filename should be hard-coded in MusicDatabaseDirectory.cpp GetIcon method for the library node icons.  I would suggest DefaultMusicSets or DefaultBoxSets to allow skins to use an icon image unique from movie sets.

@scott967 I defined the icon in system/library/music/boxsets.xml rather than hard-code it, so it's possible to use any icon name for the node.  The compilations node also defines its icon this way rather than a hard-coded name.
