Previewing movie URLs in skin
« on: April 27, 2013, 01:14:53 pm »
Instead of:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1764234/ for "url" field,

is it possible for users to present link in PVD skin like this:

IMDb

without changing IMDb plugin, but only by creating some syntax in skin's xml?

Same question for Ivek for his Allmovie_new script (Allmovie.com.psf)

For AllMovie_new script I found the way, defining custom field and the codes would be (for example):

Allmovie script:
Code: [Select]
//Get ~mfURL~ or ~URL~

endPos := Pos('"><span>overview</span></a>', HTML);
if endPos > 0 then begin
curPos := PrevPos('href="/movie', HTML, endPos);
AddFieldValue(mfURL, BASE_URL + Copy(HTML, curPos + 6, endPos - curPos - 6));
end else
AddFieldValue(mfURL, MovieURL);
AddCustomFieldValueByName('AllMovie.com', '<link url="' + MovieURL + '">AllMovie.com</link>');

Skin:
Code: [Select]
<row>
                <column space="0" halign="left" autosize="true" valign="top">
                  <label>
                    <font>
                      <color>$000000</color>
                      <bold/>
                    </font>
                    <caption>Other URLs: </caption>
                  </label>
                  <custom field="AllMovie.com" linkcolor1="$338900"/>
                </column>
              </row>

Still, the OP question stands if it's possible to import urls in "url" field in such way.

AddFieldValue(mfURL, MovieURL);
AddCustomFieldValueByName('AllMovie.com', '<link url="' + MovieURL + '">AllMovie.com</link>');

Skin:
Code: [Select]
<row>
                <column space="0" halign="left" autosize="true" valign="top">
                  <label>
                    <font>
                      <color>$000000</color>
                      <bold/>
                    </font>
                    <caption>Other URLs: </caption>
                  </label>
                  <custom field="AllMovie.com" linkcolor1="$338900"/>
                </column>
              </row>

Still, the OP question stands if it's possible to import urls in "url" field in such way.

Yes, it is possible if you use Imdb Movie Script for rating ... and the url do the same way as is done in Allmovie_new script.

Example for Imdb:
Code: [Select]
//Get ~mfURL~ or ~IMDb Url~
endPos := Pos('" /><meta property="og:url"', HTML);
if endPos > 0 then begin
curPos := PrevPos('"canonical" href="', HTML, endPos);
AddFieldValue(mfURL, Copy(HTML, curPos + 18, endPos - curPos - 18));
end else
AddFieldValue(mfURL, MovieURL);
AddCustomFieldValueByName('IMDb.com', '<link url="' + MovieURL + '">IMDb.com</link>');

However, the same also in the skin:
Code: [Select]
<row>
                <column space="0" halign="left" autosize="true" valign="top">
                  <label>
                    <font>
                      <color>$000000</color>
                      <bold/>
                    </font>
                    <caption>Other URLs: </caption>
                  </label>
                  <custom field="IMDb.com" linkcolor1="$338900"/>
                </column>
              </row>

Thanks Ivek!

So, it means it's impossible to do such thing with predefined "url" field?

Sorry, I have no answer to this because I do not know, but I think Nostra easier to answer this question.

That's right. A hyperlink can only be created in a multiselect list or memo field. If you could turn the URLs in [URL] into hyperlinks, the plugins and scripts that rely on them wouldn't work.

Thank you, Rick for the explanation. I also learned something new from this explanation.

Thanks rick.

Then some option by design for a "url" field in Preferences to store a movie/person link as a text?

I know, I know. We have holidays here, and I have some extra time not using it to get a life ;D
