addDirectoryItem doesn't update the list
#1
I have the following test addon:

Code:
import xbmcplugin
import xbmcgui

_thisPlugin = int(sys.argv[1])
_thisPluginName = "plugin.script.test"

cmd = sys.argv[2].replace("?", "")

if cmd == "test":
    xbmcgui.Dialog().ok("Test", "You selected the test option")
    listItem = xbmcgui.ListItem("You selected the test option")
    xbmcplugin.addDirectoryItem(_thisPlugin,"plugin://plugin.script.test", listItem)

else:
    listItem = xbmcgui.ListItem("The test option")
    xbmcplugin.addDirectoryItem(_thisPlugin,"plugin://plugin.script.test?test", listItem)

xbmcplugin.endOfDirectory(_thisPlugin)

When I go into it it lists one item "The test option" just as I'd expect. However when I select the test option it does not update the list. It does display the dialog, so I know it correctly parsed the argument, "test", and executed the code:

Code:
listItem = xbmcgui.ListItem("You selected the test option")
    xbmcplugin.addDirectoryItem(_thisPlugin,"plugin://plugin.script.test", listItem)

but the list displayed didn't change i.e. it didn't show "You selected the test option". Do I have to do something to reset the list once I've entered the plugin so I can update it?

Thanks, could you give me a quick example of this would work with my test code. As far as I can see none of xbmc, xbmcgui, xbmcplugin or xbmcaddon have .update or .refresh methods. Or is there an XBMC object called "container"?

Code:
if mode == 7: #suppression cinema perso
    delete_cinema( (url, name ))
    xbmc.executebuiltin("Container.Refresh")
    OK=False

Thanks, I tried:

Code:
import xbmcplugin
import xbmcgui

_thisPlugin = int(sys.argv[1])
_thisPluginName = "plugin.script.test"

cmd = sys.argv[2].replace("?", "")

if cmd == "test":
    xbmc.executebuiltin("Container.Refresh")
    xbmcgui.Dialog().ok("Test", "You selected the test option")
    listItem = xbmcgui.ListItem("You selected the test option")
    xbmcplugin.addDirectoryItem(_thisPlugin,"plugin://plugin.script.test", listItem)
    xbmcplugin.endOfDirectory(_thisPlugin, updateListing=True)
    xbmc.executebuiltin("Container.Refresh")

else:
    listItem = xbmcgui.ListItem("The test option")
    xbmcplugin.addDirectoryItem(_thisPlugin,"plugin://plugin.script.test?test", listItem)
    xbmcplugin.endOfDirectory(_thisPlugin, updateListing=True)
and it made no difference. The list still didn't refresh when I selected the test option from the first listing.

Thanks for your help. I'm sure there's something obvious I'm missing.
