[SOLVED] tv guide button controls issue

Post by chris0147 » Wed Sep 10, 2014 9:22 pm

Hi guys

I need your help, I have got a problem with the button controls. I'm using the button controls to add the list of programs in the tv guide, but the buttons will not get separate from the other button controls.

Here is the screenshot.

Here is the code I use:

Code: Select all

#Pull the data from the database
channelList = list()
database_path = xbmc.translatePath(os.path.join('special://userdata/addon_data/script.tvguide', 'source.db'))

if os.path.exists(database_path):
   #get the channels list
   cur.execute('SELECT channel FROM programs WHERE channel GROUP BY channel')

   for row in cur:
        channels = row[0].encode('ascii')
        channelList.append(channels)

        # set the channels text
        for index in range(0, CHANNELS_PER_PAGE):
             channel = channelList[index]
             channel_index = index

             if channel is not None:
                self.getControl(4110 + index).setLabel(channel)

             #get the programs list
             cur.execute('SELECT channel, title, start_date, stop_date FROM programs WHERE channel=?', [channel])
             programList = list()
             programs = cur.fetchall()

             for row in programs:
                  program = row[1].encode('ascii'), str(row[2]), str(row[3])
                  title = row[1].encode('ascii')
                  program_start_date = str(row[2])
                  program_end_date = str(row[3])

                  # find nearest half hour
                  viewStartDate = datetime.datetime.now()
                  viewStartDate -= datetime.timedelta(minutes = viewStartDate.minute % 30, seconds = viewStartDate.second)

                  try:
                      start_time = datetime.datetime.strptime(program_start_date, "%Y%m%d%H%M%S")
                      stop_time = datetime.datetime.strptime(program_end_date, "%Y%m%d%H%M%S")

                      stop_time = datetime.datetime.fromtimestamp(time.mktime(time.strptime(program_end_date, "%Y%m%d%H%M%S")))

                      #print start_time
                      startDelta = start_time - viewStartDate
                      stopDelta = stop_time - viewStartDate
                      program_start = self.secondsToXposition(startDelta.seconds)

Do you know how to make the button controls to make get separate from the other button controls?

From a skinning standpoint, you would maybe have this in a (possibly a couple) grouplist control...and then you could have an </itemgap> of whatever you like. Perhaps that might help?

You need to be more specific when it comes to things like this; however, I'll assume that when you say "the buttons will not get separate from the other button controls," you're referring a gap from left/right and not top/bottom.

Sounds like you need to have an offset variable with the gap's width and then add/subtract from the final width or left position whichever route you decide to take:

Code: Select all

offset = 4
program_width - offset

Code: Select all

offset = 4
program_start + offset

Thank you very much for your help. Where do i need to input this code?

Code: Select all

offset = 4
program_width - offset

Code: Select all

offset = 4
program_start + offset

how i can make the gaps for widths and then add/subtract from the final width on the right position?

@chris0147,

I haven't really looked at your code but if you have written it yourself, you shouldn't have a problem figuring it out...

If you're gonna use the "offset" or gap, if you prefer, variable, then that goes at the top near the imports... You then perform the calculations before adding the button control for the "program".

I'm not gonna look any further than this until you at least try it on your own; the code you have pasted, assuming is yours, tells me that you shouldn't have much problems figuring this out.

Well I still have a problem with the pixel, I'm adding the button controls in the pixel area, the area you know where the tv guide programs will display. When I added the button controls in the pixel area, it will add the buttons but most of the buttons will not calculating in the pixel area to get it separate with other button controls.

Here is the screenshot:

Here is the code

Code: Select all

for row in programs:
     program = row[1].encode('ascii'), str(row[2]), str(row[3])
     title = row[1].encode('ascii')
     program_start_date = str(row[2])
     program_end_date = str(row[3])                       
                         
     #convert the date formats into minutes
     minutes_start = self.parseDateTimeToMinutesSinceEpoch(program_start_date)
     minutes_end = self.parseDateTimeToMinutesSinceEpoch(program_end_date)
     minutes_length = minutes_end - minutes_start
                        
    program_index = channel_index
    program_start = channel_index * 60
    program_length = minutes_length
    program_notification = program
    program_minutes = minutes_length
    program_start_to_end = 100
    programs_top = 325
    program_height = 34.5
    pixels_per_minute = 1080 / minutes_length
    program_gap = 10
    position_start = program_start_to_end + (program_start * pixels_per_minute) + ((program_index - 1) * program_gap)
     position_top = programs_top + (channel_index * program_height) + ((channel_index - 1) * program_gap)
     program_width = program_length * pixels_per_minute

     if program_width > 1:
          if program_notification:
               button_nofocus = 'channels_bar1.png'
               button_focus = 'channels_yellow.png'
          else:
               button_nofocus = 'channels_bar1.png'
               button_focus = 'channels_yellow.png'

               if program_width < 1:
                   program_title = ''
               else:
                   program_title = title
 
                   program_controls = xbmcgui.ControlButton(
                         position_start, 
                         position_top, 
                         program_width, 
                         program_height, 
                         program_title, 
                         focusTexture = button_focus, 
                         noFocusTexture = button_nofocus
                   )
                   self.addControl(program_controls)
             cur.close()

Do you know how i can add the button controls in the pixel area?

One: if you've solved your original problem, you should edit the title with a [SOLVED] or similar prefix

Two: it'd be great if you explain how you accomplish the fix so that others can benefit from your findings; also to know if we helped or otherwise

Three: if you have a new question separate from your original, you should start a new topic with a meaningful title, not just "help can't get it to work"

Four: explain what and how your doing it so that we can assist faster instead if us having to go thru your code, which in most cases we won't do

Without source code it's hard to say, but I think you're referring to an xml file. If so you can hide using "visible" take a look at Confluence Lite -> DialogKeyboard.xml seeing an example.
If you referring to python pls provide some source code or even better full.

If you referring to python pls provide some source code or even better full.

Hey tim619

here it is:

Two: it'd be great if you explain how you accomplish the fix so that others can benefit from your findings; also to know if we helped or otherwise

Three: if you have a new question separate from your original, you should start a new topic with a meaningful title, not just "help can't get it to work"

Four: explain what and how your doing it so that we can assist faster instead if us having to go thru your code, which in most cases we won't do
