Static List Content

From Official Kodi Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Container controls (the List Container, Fixed List Container, Wrap List Container, and Panel Container) can be setup by the skinner with some predefined static content. This is done by including the <content> tag in the control. This allows skinners to have lists (or panels) of buttons wherever they want in the skin. The content below could used on the home page for instance. You can use <defaultcontrol [always="true"]>id</defaultcontrol> to control which item in the list gets focused by default.

<content>
  <item id="1">
    <label>My First Item</label>
    <label2>Label 2</label2>
    <icon>icon1.png</icon>
    <thumb>thumb1.png</thumb>
    <onclick>ActivateWindow(Videos)</onclick>
    <visible>true</visible>
    <property name="foo">Some1stValueHere</property>
    <property name="foo2">Some2ndValueHere</property>
  </item>
  <item id="2">
    <label>My Second Item</label>
    <label2>Label 2</label2>
    <icon>icon2.png</icon>
    <thumb>thumb2.png</thumb>
    <onclick>ActivateWindow(Music)</onclick>
    <property name="foo">Some1stValueHere</property>
    <property name="foo2">Some2ndValueHere</property>
  </item>
</content>

2 Available tags

The available XML tags for each item are as follows. Note that, as always, they're lower-case only, as XML is case-sensitive.
