Dinamic hiding of the library and multiscreen

Postby Apocalypse480 » Tue Jun 05, 2018 6:14 pm

Hi everyone, in these days I am trying to set up a skin and I was wondering how to make te library section visible and invisible by pressing something from the controller.
Can a skin be dinamically changed and updated without reopening or resetting something?

Another question is if I can use multiple screens, for example displaying some elements on one e some others on the other one. In the past I read it was impossible, is it now possible with new versions of Mixxx?

If all those things are impossible to do using just the XML skin files, can they be made using a sort of script of something else?

Thanks. :)

[library] maximize_library

Although I found a minor bug I forgot to log when adding this to my controller. It only works properly after restarting Mixxx after adding it to the controller script (same with the other GUI functions I added.)

You mean when editing the xml? Not automatically. But if you open Mixxx using the --developer argument there is an extra menu item which has the option to reload the Skin, which is a lot quicker than any other way.

Not yet but hopefully very soon.......

Thank you kazakore, very helpful :)
Do you know where an exaustive and complete manual for skin creation can be found?

Thanks.
