Settings Spin Control

From Official Kodi Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The settings spin control is used in the settings screens for when a list of options can be chosen from using up/down arrows. You can choose the position, size, and look of the spin control. It is basically a cross between the button control and a spin control. It has a label and focus and non focus textures, as well as a spin control on the right.
