First skin tutorial
Foundation is a very simple but fully functional skin designed to be used as either a base for creating new skins or as a learning tool for anyone interested in what makes a skin work.
It comes with both 720p & 1080i coded XML's and also includes a screen shot folder of every window/dialog Kodi uses to make things even easier.
To get the most out of it you'll need to either make a new keymap.xml or add this to your existing one -
<keymap> <global> <keyboard> <F5>XBMC.ReloadSkin()</F5> <F6>Skin.ToggleSetting(DebugGrid)</F6> <F7>Skin.ToggleSetting(HideDebugInfo)</F7> <F8>Notification(Testing 123,Hello world)</F8> </keyboard> </global> </keymap>
The following keys will then activate the corresponding action -
F5 - Reload skin (used to see any changes instantly without restarting XBMC) F6 - Show/Hide the Debug Grid (used for checking alignment, positioning, or sizing) F7 - Show/Hide the Debug Info (used to display the currently active windows or dialogs) F8 - Activated the KaiDialogToast.xml (used to display the notification dialog)
