Dynamic content sent to list container from current focus item?
#1
Alright, i posted a request for an addon, and the reply i received made me look deeper in to the skinning manual. as a newbie, I look at it and think, "yeah, it can be done," then i try a few things and dead-end each time.  I just don't want to futz around on something that cant be done anyway, simply because i'm ignorant and don't have a deep enough knowledge of the code yet.

So I will ask first.  

I want to send dynamic content to a list container.  I assume it will probably be a path, I think.  I cant get my head around this one at the moment.

So lets say i have two list containers in one window.  I will call them id="909", and "910"

909 is genres
I want to focus, say on "hard rock," in 909

910 is artists
Upon focus in 909, i want 910 to populate the artists in that genre
Then as focus changes in 909, content in 910 changes.

Is this possible?

for your 910 container you should be fine with

<content target="music">musicdb://artists/?xsp=%7B%22rules%22%3A%7B%22or%22%3A%5B%7B%22field%22%3A%22genre%22%2C%22operator%22%3A%22contains%22%2C%22value%22%3A%5B%22$INFO[Container(909).Listitem.Label]%22%5D%7D%5D%7D%2C%22type%22%3A%22artists%22%7D</content>

Holy Scripting, Batman!

I would have never figured this out.

Thank you, mardukL!!!!!!

i had never figured that out by myself.Just lucky to look at that thread

But i forget the simple one.

i think


<content target="music">$INFO[Container(909).Listitem.Folderpath]</content>

should work too.

I wasnt sure if i should stay in this thread, or make a new one.

ok, so i have a rudimentary set up now, and the only place i can hit play is on tracks, but im sure that is default somwhere.

I want to play-all at any position.  genre, artist, and album too.  does anybody know if this is possible??

i added <onclick>PlayerControl(Play)</onclick> but it didnt do squat other than toggle what is already playing from the song level.

this seems to work on albums, but no higher in the directory (artists and genre)

<onclick>PlayMedia($INFO[ListItem.FolderPath],isdir)</onclick>

This is what happens in the playlist window when i do this at the artist level.

you should try PlayMedia(media[,isdir][,1],[playoffset=xx],[resume],[noresume])

BUT " ,isdir " will sadly not work for music.


May you need a script to play the folder

e.g. embuaryhelper or playalbum script
