i am trying to modify the DialogVideoinfo.xml, i would like to place the Poster/Actor image on the right and the text on the left, but there seems to be a invisible wall there, i can put the posters on the right easily, but when i try to shift the text to the left it disappears. is there a default margin somewhere?
There’s no margin or invisible wall, no. All controls are independent of each other.
the following puts the tagline barly right of the poster.
<!-- Tagline --> <control type="group"> <height>36</height> <width>1190</width> <visible>!String.IsEmpty(ListItem.Tagline)</visible> <control type="fadelabel"> <left>-40</left> <width>200</width> <height>36</height> <align>right</align> <font>Font36</font> <label>Tagline</label> <textcolor>$VAR[TextColor2]</textcolor> <pauseatend>3000</pauseatend> </control> <control type="fadelabel"> <left>170</left> <width>1085</width> <height>36</height> <font>Font36</font> <label>$INFO[ListItem.Tagline]</label> <textcolor>$VAR[TextColor1]</textcolor> <pauseatend>3000</pauseatend> </control> </control>
am i missing something here?
This part (the information list) consists of a group of two fadelabels each, inside a grouplist, inside a group. You have to change the coordinates from the hirachically top most control down to the bottom one to move the whole thing… That’s as much as I can give you. I don’t know what your code looks like and my code has moved drastically with the latest changes so that helping here will have to be limited.
this was the culprit:
<!-- Info --> <control type="group"> <left>90</left> <top>220</top> <visible>!String.IsEqual(Control.GetLabel(5),$LOCALIZE)</visible>
left was set to 600
Looks pretty sexy with the black background! Reminds me I have to re-watch the movie
