SxxLxxS Skin (and general) Questions
« on: December 20, 2017, 05:24:59 PM »
New to E-Touch and have 2 questions about the skin SxxLxxS_PNG_V9.0.04 skin and probably skins in general.

On this skin when I select a song in Album View it takes me to another screen to confirm I want the song added.  On other skins I've found that its set to simply add the selection to the playlist.  Is there a setting that I just can't find to change that action or do I nee to modify the skin? Assuming I have to modify the skin, I opened the skintool and am lost on where I can change some piece of code or click a setting to make this change. Anybody have any clue on this? Kinda expecting I need to somehow open a button config somewhere and make a change.

On this same skin, on the Album view again, there are letters at the top that I assume I can select to either go to a group of albums that start with a certain letter or have the view scroll to the first album with that letter at the beginning.  Instead it launches an overlay window that show the letter but does nothing.  Ideas on this?  Did I maybe not do something correctly when I build the database index of my albums?

THANKS, David

I am on wireless keyboard so apologies for answer, not as easy as typing on a normal keyboard.

I am not sure what skins you are using, but if you click on a track, it will take you to confirmation of playing. This is standard, maybe the other skins you are using just have a different button.

Skin tool is confusing if you do not know what you are doing, but it is learnable after about 100 years. You would need to alter a few buttons that I cannot think of right now, as not on the office PC and I have not even set it up on that.

The letters should take you to the start of whatever you have set up either music videos, albums, karaoke etc. It should take you to the start of M for example, the first artist or album.

I will try and reinstall tomorrow and have a look, but I am sure that someone might come on later, that will be able to help you as well.

Please remember though, that it is almost Christmas, so help is going to be very thin on the ground until next year.

I will answer here as well, I cannot help on the radio side of things, simply because it is a feature, that I have never bothered about, but there is a guide in the tutorials section.

I cannot say how good it is, as radio on a jukebox just does not interest me.

Have a look under General Settings.

Show Confirmation when Track Added - Not sure this is it.

Also Auto Back on Selection

Thanks Mark and Brad.  I will try those settings Brad.  And Mark, for some reason the A - Z buttons up top are working, swear they weren't before. When you select one it goes to the first album starting with tthat letter, I think the name of the artist not the name of the album. Also, The other skin I tried look like they also went to that in-between confirmation screen when making a music selection. I need to look at all the skins I played with though, think one just added it without asking.  Maybe the settings Brad suggested will fix that. Kinda like it just to add it to the current queue.

Still trying to understand within the skins, where is the logic written for any of this in case I want to change it?  Would expect within the Skintool I could see that whomever made the skin I'm using has written a "do x when y happens" piece of code for anything that is clicked on.  Probably right in front of me and just don't see it yet ......

I agree on the Radio, it may not be useful to some but thought since it was there I'd give it a try.

Cheers, David

Brad

Confirmation screen is turned off this way. Auto back will take you back to the album selection page as opposed to back tot he same albums track listing.

Interesting I tried both of those settings with the included SxxLxxS skin and neither had any affect.  Its ok though as I realized its useful to easily click "Play Now" when a selection is made sometimes.

Play now cuts off the current song even if it was user selected.
