    How to create directory list in skin ?

    Hi,
    I'm working on a skin and want to include a directory list (as you find it in most skins in the audio browser). I tried copying the correspondending line of other skins, but I can't get it to work, it doesn't show anything. When I load other skins it works there as it should.
    So how does it work ?

    List properties in Road Runner skins

    First Download the latest beta of Road Runner, as it supports the new commands in the SD line. Just Download the Road Runner.exe and replace your with it.

    Try these lines:

    Code:
    /, S, x, y, w, h, fore R;RGB, G, B,  back R;RGB, G, B,  folder R;RGB, G, B,  file R;RGB, G, B, selected R;RGB, G, B, select R;RGB, G, B, trs, font pt;FONT, font name
    S01,114,110,575,262,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,0,0,0,TRUE,20,"Arial Narrow:B"
    
    /, SD, Alignment;Alignment, Disp;MODE, Icon Width, Icon Heigth, Path
    SD,00,01,50,50,"C:","*.*",1
    The second line SD shows *.* to show ALL file types. If you just want music use *.mp3

    Hi. First, thanks for your answer. I still have a question though:
    I will have
    a S01,......-Line for displaying the playlist and
    a S02,......-Line for the directory list

    In the S01-Line you postet, how does RoadRunner know that this should be the are for the directory listing, and not for the playlist ? I just see coordinates, size, colors, and font there, but no description, that this should be the directory-area.

    As you can see I don't totally understand this command .

    Is there a way of showing a directory list WITHOUT any pics?
    I mean no folder icon, no file type icon, no album art... NOTHING, just the directory list
    just like the playlist look

    more:
    is there a way of putting some of highlighted (selected) song tag in the directory list on a label?

    another for u gurus:
    is there any label code for lists current number and/or total? I know that there is such labels for PLAYlists. but could not found it for ordinary lists. it would be nice when browsing not yet loaded large dirs so u can figure out how far from top or bottom of the list u are (the same as in PL)

    Yes, but it'll affect ALL your directory lists in your skins.

    In rr.ini, set showicons=0.

    Also, by using that setting, you will not be able to use thumbnail views for your directories.

    DLPOS to show your current directory position. For total directories in a give path, I don't think there is a code for that. However, you can set a label to display a value or code using BYIND and TOPDL. Not a complete answer to your question, but best I got. You could also make a DL slider to show your directory position.

    You need to read the BIBLE....
    SkinCommands.txt is your friend.
    Everything you want to do is explained in there.

    "PLTEXT" - Shows the text currently selected on a playlist
    "DLTEXT" - Shows the text currently selected on a Directory List (Folder list)
    "DLPATH" - Shows the current path on a Directory List (Folder List)
    "PBTEXT" - Shows the text currently selected on a Phone Book List
    "PLPOS" - PlayList Position (can also be polled directly from flash -- see below)
    "DLPOS" - Directory List Position (can also be polled directly from flash -- see below)
    "PBPOS" - PhoneBook List Position (can also be polled directly from flash -- see below)
    "LISTTEXT" - Shows the text selected on the currently selected list
    "LISTPOS" - Shows the Current Item Position in the current list

    thank u guys

    I always program with skin commands.txt and RR help open
    but as I said in other topic, I think RR documentation REALLY needs a review
    I have no doubt that RR is most powerfull and configurable front end. But the documentation is kinda confuse. there's no clear examples, cross references and such things

    I've already ofered myself as a volunteer to try putting it together. But I don't really think I already know enought of RR to do a real good job on that

    I'll try to do this test skin I'm working on just to get more knowloge than I plan to work on documentation

    Thanks once more for the fast replies
