Condensed Movie Skin
« on: May 06, 2009, 10:35:19 pm »
Thanks to those who responded to my feature requests.  I've been using both ideas with great success.  The others I'll have to think about some more and see if I can do anything on my end.

I've built a skin that displays movie information, custom fields, thumbs and cover in a (slightly) different configuration than the class skin.  Some fields that I don't use have been removed to reduce the clutter.  As a result, most of the information appears in a single page.  More than anything, this a re-arrangement of the 'classic' skin by Nostra.

I've attached a screenshot.  Don't ask about the movie...I haven't watched it yet  :).

Here's the code (didn't see an option to upload a file AND an image...).  Maybe I'm going blind...

Code: [Select]
<xml>
 <pvd_skin_movie>
  <skinname>PVD Condensed</skinname>
  <version>1.0.0.0</version>
  <author>Dave C. (copy / paste of Nostra's code)</author>
  <description>Primary Info, custom fields, file info, thumbnails, all on one page.</description>

Thanks for sharing this. It's always helpful to see another's ideas for skinning. If I can get over my fear that I might be asked to explain how I did what I did, I'll post my own creation. I do most of my work by obsessive trial and error. :-\

You do not need to fear. I can explain such things if needed.

Dont know if anybody noticed it but at least in the german version of the PVD the "PVD Condenced" skin for the datasheet doesn't seem to display the "seen" checkbox at the right place, I see the checkbox but I dont see the legend.

It is an unofficial skin and I do not really want to support it. I could take a look thou if I get too much free time :)

Oops. I merged these topics just as you posted—I hope that doesn't cause confusion.

I was going to add... I assume this user-contributed skin was added primarily to illustrate skins are meant to be created and modified by users. I've always considered the "Classic" skin to be the default (which, of course, should be properly maintained), but the rest are just illustrations of what the user might do with a skin.

Right, it's precisely the case. The classic and tabs skins (created by me) are the default ones and should be considered default.

I never considered language support when I slapped this together  :o, so I didn't leave enough space for anything longer than the English labels.  The attached skin resolves this.
