help with adding settings to a skin
#1
i am trying to add radio buttons to the SkinSettings.xml to enable/disable the visibility of the following in DialogVideoInfo.xml, but i am unsure what or how to reference to it.

 
           <!-- Play Button File Path -->
            <control type="fadelabel">
                <left>10</left>
                <bottom>7</bottom>
                <width>1900</width>
                <height>36</height>
                <font>Font27</font>
                <align>center</align>
                <label>$INFO[ListItem.FileNameAndPath]</label>
                <textcolor>$VAR[TextColor2]</textcolor>
                <pauseatend>3000</pauseatend>
                <visible>Control.HasFocus(8)</visible>
            </control>

            
            <!-- Trailer Button File Path -->
            <control type="fadelabel">
                <left>8</left>
                <bottom>7</bottom>
                <width>1902</width>
                <height>36</height>
                <font>Font27</font>
                <align>center</align>
                <label>$INFO[ListItem.Trailer]</label>
                <textcolor>$VAR[TextColor2]</textcolor>
                <pauseatend>3000</pauseatend>
                <visible>Control.HasFocus(11)</visible>
            </control>

ok, i think i get it. so i added this to DialogVideoInfo.xml

                        <!-- Play Button File Path -->
            <control type="fadelabel">
                <left>10</left>
                <bottom>7</bottom>
                <width>1900</width>
                <height>36</height>
                <font>Font27</font>
                <align>center</align>
                <label>$INFO[ListItem.FileNameAndPath]</label>
                <textcolor>$VAR[TextColor2]</textcolor>
                <pauseatend>3000</pauseatend>
                <visible>Control.HasFocus(8) | !Skin.HasSetting(VideoPath)</visible>
            </control>


and this to the SkinSettings.xml

<!-- Movie/TV Show Path Setting -->
<control type="radiobutton" id="304">
    <width>1220</width>
    <height>66</height>
    <textwidth>1120</textwidth>
    <font>Font33</font>
    <label>$LOCALIZE[31133]</label>
    <include>DefaultSettingButton</include>
    <selected>!Skin.HasSetting(VideoPath)</selected>
    <onclick>Skin.ToggleSetting(VideoPath)</onclick>
</control>

but it does not work correctly, if the box is unticked in settings the filename and path show up as normal, if i tick the box there is additional text on top of the filename andPath but i can't make it out

UPDATE: fixed the issue by changing:
<visible>Control.HasFocus(8) | !Skin.HasSetting(VideoPath)</visible>

to

<visible>Control.HasFocus(8) + !Skin.HasSetting(VideoPath)</visible>

second question:

how do i show a alternative label if the setting is not ticked?

IE:
DialogVideoInfo.xml

<!-- Refresh Button File Path -->
<control type="fadelabel">
    <left>8</left>
    <bottom>7</bottom>
    <width>1902</width>
    <height>36</height>
    <font>Font27</font>
    <align>center</align>
    <label>$INFO[ListItem.FileNameAndPath]</label>
    <textcolor>$VAR[TextColor2]</textcolor>
    <pauseatend>3000</pauseatend>
    <visible>Control.HasFocus(6) + !Skin.HasSetting(VideoRefreshPath)</visible>
</control>

SkinSettings.xml

<!-- Show Refresh Path -->
<control type="radiobutton" id="306">
    <width>1220</width>
    <height>66</height>
    <textwidth>1120</textwidth>
    <font>Font33</font>
    <label>$LOCALIZE[31135]</label>
    <include>DefaultSettingButton</include>
    <selected>!Skin.HasSetting(VideoRefreshPath)</selected>
    <onclick>Skin.ToggleSetting(VideoRefreshPath)</onclick>
</control>

when ticked will display Path and File Name, when unticked i would like to display a Label "Refresh MetaSata for $INFO[ListItem.Title]"

you can use a variable for that: https://kodi.wiki/view/Skinning_Manual#Variables
