Solved Question : Kodi do auto clear a property ?
#1
Hi, i came here because i detected a 'strange' behaviour.

I set up a view type, with cutom panel containers (at season level).

One of them has  a static item which set a property onclick  (- which starts trailer in windowed mode)
My first attempt was to give the prop a simple name.

<item id="9">
                        <label>Local Trailer</label>
                        <label2 />
                        <visible>!String.IsEmpty(Window(home).Property(trailer_avail))</visible>
                        <onclick>SetProperty(TrailerPlaying,true,home)</onclick>
                        <onclick>PlayMedia($INFO[listitem.path]$INFO[ListItem.FolderName,,-trailer.mp4],1)</onclick>
                        <icon>$INFO[ListItem.Art(tvshow.landscape)]</icon>
                        <thumb>$INFO[ListItem.Art(tvshow.landscape)]</thumb>
                    </item>


I decided to set property because i want to hide some controls with a fade animation.
And i thought i have to clear it, but KODI does it for me ;-) ..

If i name the property

<onclick>SetProperty(TrailerPlaying,true,home)</onclick>

KODI auto Clears that prop, after i quit/stop playback. (press 'x' key

And/But if use
<onclick>SetProperty(TrailerIsPlaying,true,home)</onclick>

I need to Clear the Property via XML , which is my Expected behaviour.

Can someone tell me, why that happens ?
Or lead me to a source with 'KODI native (gui) propertys ' , so i have control over which naming conventions for custom propertys i should avoid ?!

the property you are using is likely already used either somewhere else in the skin, or by an addon you're using.

a list of native kodi properties can be found in the wiki:

Thanks.
The log dont put relevant info for that.
i will check if its came from a background service of an addon.

I assume skinhelper.service (even if my skin dont use/call it)

Its 100% not skinned to clear that prop.
(I build skin xml from scratch)

Will test tomorrow, and report back.

Solved.

related to script.skin.helper.service, even if not used it uses bg service to clear the prop if set.
found this in 'kodi_monitor.py'

if method == "Player.OnStop":
                self.monitoring_stream = False
                self.infopanelshown = False
                self.win.clearProperty("Skinhelper.PlayerPlaying")
                self.win.clearProperty("TrailerPlaying")
                self.reset_win_props()
