This tutorial will show how to add a volume value (percent, number or dB) beside the volume bar. This is achieved by editing DialogVolumeBar.xml

1 Add volume value as percent or number

Note: This isn't really supported by Kodi. Its audio is based on decibel and doesn't have 100 different levels, it has 90. So at a couple places the volume will skip 2 points. E.g. 89%-91%.

A. Open the file DialogVolumeBar.xml

B. To fit the volume value you need to make the background wider. Find the following code:

<control type="image">
	<left>0</left>
	<top>-10</top>
	<width>300</width>
	<height>50</height>
	<texture flipy="true" border="20,20,20,2">InfoMessagePanel.png</texture>
</control>

C. Change <width>300</width> to <width>345</width>

D. Find the control section that starts with:

<control type="group">
	<visible>!player.passthrough</visible>

E. Add the following code within the control section. This adds the volume percent value. To get the "number value" you just remove the percent sign.

<control type="label">
	<description>Volume value</description>
	<top>2</top>
	<left>285</left>
	<font>font13_title</font>
	<label>$INFO[Control.GetLabel(1),,%]</label>
</control>

2 Add volume value as dB

A. Open the file DialogVolumeBar.xml

B. To fit the dB value you need to make the background wider (needs to be even wider than for percent/number). Find the following code:

<control type="image">
	<left>0</left>
	<top>-10</top>
	<width>300</width>
	<height>50</height>
	<texture flipy="true" border="20,20,20,2">InfoMessagePanel.png</texture>
</control>

C. Change <width>300</width> to <width>380</width>

D. Find the control section that starts with:

<control type="group">
	<visible>!player.passthrough</visible>

E. Add the following code within the control section. This adds the volume dB value.

<control type="label">
	<description>Volume value</description>
	<top>2</top>
	<left>285</left>
	<font>font13_title</font>
        <label>$INFO[Player.Volume]</label>
</control>
