Fixed List Container

From Official Kodi Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The fixed list container is one of several containers used to display items from file lists in various ways. The fixed list container is the same as the List Container, with one exception: the focused item is fixed. Thus, moving up or down scrolls the items, not the focused position. As with all container controls, the layout of the items within the control is very flexible.

1 Available tags

In addition to the Default Control Tags the following tags are available. Note that each tag is lower case only. This is important, as xml tags are case-sensitive.

Tag Description
viewtype The type of view. Choices are list, icon, wide, wrap, biglist, bigicon, bigwide, bigwrap, info and biginfo. The label attribute indicates the label that will be used in the "View As" control within the GUI. It is localizable via strings.xml. viewtype has no effect on the view itself. It is used by kodi when switching skin to automatically select a view with a similar layout. Skinners should try to set viewtype to describe the layout as best as possible.
orientation The orientation of the list. Defaults to vertical.
pagecontrol Used to set the <id> of the page control used to control this list.
scrolltime The time (in ms) to scroll from one item to another. By default, this is 200ms. The list will scroll smoothly from one item to another as needed. Set it to zero to disable the smooth scrolling. The scroll movement can be further adjusted by selecting one of the available tween methods.
focusposition Specifies the focus position (from 0 -> number of displayable items - 1). The focused position doesn't change - instead, the items move up or down (or left and right) as focus changes.
movement This will make the focused position scroll again at the end of the list. (ie. <movement>6</movement> if there are only 6 items below the focus, the focus moves down to the bottom)
itemlayout Specifies the layout of items in the list. Requires the height attribute set in a vertical list, and the width attribute set for a horizontal list. The <itemlayout> then contains as many label and image controls as required. See here for more information.
focusedlayout Specifies the layout of items in the list that have focus. Requires the height attribute set in a vertical list, and the width attribute set for a horizontal list. The <focusedlayout> then contains as many label and image controls as required. See here for more information.
content Used to set the item content that this list will contain. Allows the skinner to setup a list anywhere they want with a static set of content, as a useful alternative to the grouplist control. See here for more information
preloaditems Used in association with the background image loader. See here for more information
autoscroll Used to make the container scroll automatically
