[RELEASE] RecentlyAdded Script (RecentlyAdded.py) Recently Added for Skins / Skinners
#1
Thumbs Up 
Here is a new version of RecentlyAdded.py

http://xbmc-addons.googlecode.com/svn/pa...lyAdded.py

*new: "alarm" parameter.
most skins run this script whenever you enter home. with the new alarm parameter, if you have a control in home.xml to execute the script, you can set <defaultcontrol always="false"> then the script does not have to run everytime you enter home. if you can have the control in startup.xml. the bad thing about startup.xml, if you have a setting to enable this. you will have to restart xbmc once enabled.

you can pass the following optional parameters:
PHP Code:
limit=#                ; # to limit returned results (default=5)
partial=True         True to returned only items unfinished (default=False)
albums=True        True to return albums instead of songs (default=False)
unplayed=True      True to return only items that have not been played (default=False)
totals=True          True to return database totals (default=False)
trailer=True          True to play the trailer (if available) (default=False)
alarm=#              ; every # minutes run script (default=0, no alarm) 

* when alums=True, only one song is still played (developers any help)

separate parameters with "&amp;" minus quotes

example (the setproperty and visible is for aeon, when the main menu loses focus control 8999 can gain focus with navigating. you skin may not need this):
PHP Code:
<defaultcontrol always="false">8999</defaultcontrol>
 
 
        <
control type="button" id="8999">
            <
posx>-100</posx>
            <
posy>-100</posy>
            <
width>0</width>
            <
height>0</height>
   <
onfocus>XBMC.RunScript(special://skin/extras/RecentlyAdded.py,limit=5&amp;alarm=30&amp;albums=True&amp;unplayed=True&amp;totals=$INFO[Skin.HasSetting(WidgetLatestAddedTotals)])</onfocus>
            
<onfocus>SetFocus(300)</onfocus>
        </
control

So if I replace the recently_added.py i already have, with this one it should work fine without me having to change code in my Home.xml?

got to admit I'm confused too you saying we don't have to run it anymore ? or that we still have to run it but the script decides if it needs to bother updating or not ?

you're not alone. ;-)

if i use alarm=30, does this counter keep running if i navigate away from the homescreen?
or does it only update the recently added stuff if you stay on the homepage for half an hour?

edit:
i also can't seem to see the logic in this:
Code:
<onfocus>SetProperty(LastAddedRun,1)</onfocus>
<visible>IsEmpty(Window(Home).Property(LastAddedRun))</visible>

I think it means that you just run it once in startup.xml for example and then it sets a xbmc internal alarm to rerun the script every X amount of minutes if you have it set.

I wonder what effect this would have if it decided to fire off the script while your using another like the full AMT script (since I heard about issues running 2 scripts at once)

no the script doesn't decide. the script starts an AlarmClock()

you still need to run the script "once". if you pass alarm=30, then the script will run every 30 minutes. so then there is no need to run it everytime you enter the home menu. (which i don't like). you enter movies back out and the script runs again.

as i said in the first post you can set always="false" for you're control so it only runs once. right?

was the example not clear?

This is just the way to launch it and he then sets a variable to say its been launched
<onfocus>SetProperty(LastAddedRun,1)</onfocus>
and hides the launcher because its allready been launched so you wont launch it again
<visible>IsEmpty(Window(Home).Property(LastAddedRun))</visible>

you could launch it from autoexec.py with the params also.

yes jezz in aeon that control can gain focus again if i lose focus by bumping the mouse. then try and navigate to the menu with the keyboard.

probably with proper skinning it isn't needed.

yup, i got that one.

Nuka1195 Wrote:was the example not clear?

it's the 'plus if your in home it will update automatically' bit that got me confused.
i was unsure if the alarmclock kept running once you navigate away from home.

thanx for the explanation Nuka1195, and for all the neat scripts you've been releasing lately.

cheers.

Just to clarify things a bit, some people are getting an error using my mod and the latest added script. Everything works great for me (Windows) so I'm wondering if it's a Linux problem.

All I've done is add the Hide Unwatched and Totals conditions -
Code:
<onfocus>XBMC.RunScript(special://skin/extras/RecentlyAdded.py,limit=6&amp;albums=True&amp;unplayed=True&amp;totals=True)</onfocus>

shassino Wrote:I have the same problem RecentlyAdded.py script failed.
Running on ubuntu 9.04.
I got Aeon Hitched at 1.30pm via git.
I should have latest RecentlyAdded.py.

Code:

With the Hitcher mod xbmc will become unresponsive and I have to forcably kill the process with the following in the log

20:39:28 T:1308 M:1122537472 ERROR: CThread:ConfusedtaticThread : Access violation at 0x1e0ac802: Writing location 0x00000000

Happens within 10 seconds of running up the skin and in that time it looks like the RecentlyAdded part works as I can see added movies and the totals.

However if I rename the 'extras' folder to something else then I don't get the crash, the only file inside the folder is the RecentlyAdded.py file.

XBMC is todays SVN and Hitchers mod is fresh from git today, OS is Windows 7 RC
