I added a popup dialog that gets shown once and only once on first run of XBMC when they enter a window with the side menu to inform people there is a semi hidden menu off to the left hand side of the screen it looks like this
Its a simple change and I think its probably something we should get into Frodo since we may have more new users thanks to PVR, It may annoy our current users when they next update to a nightly but its only once until they wipe all their xbmc guisettings.xml file again
Changes look good to me - nice idea :)
Added: [Confluence] a popup dialog that gets shown once and only once…
… on first run of XBMC when they enter a window with the side menu to inform people there is a semi hidden menu off to the left hand side of the screen
Updated with "Click "Ok" to close this dialog. It will not appear again."
nice Idea. After reading the PRs comment my first thought was "if we need such a dialog, then there is something wrong with the usability of the skin". But then I've seen the screenshot and just love it. Might also be nice to have it for other things like "Your video library is currently empty, to add items to your library create a share in file mode and scan it your library. [add share now] [abort]" (needs rephrasing, but you get the idea).
Yeah thats nice - android is doing something similar once you go to applications for the very first time.
@da-anda MyVideoNav - label (id18) - Warning to the user to turn off library mode when no scanned media is found
No longer used now that Files & Library are merged.
da-anda I really don't want to go and pollute the skin with dozens of these it would just be super annoying, I added this one just because I hear it quite often and it is the only real hidden thing now in confluence
