Request (Specific Window)

Post by BugSplatter »

XMBC Version: 2.20.5
Installed or Portable version: Installed
Windows Version: 10

Hi,

I would like to be able (almost the same as 'Match Type') to select i.e. 'Parent Window' and then when using the window-finder the Window Details are used from the parent window of the window that was selected. This way you don't need something like Spy++ or some other application that can display information about windows(for example if the parent window has the 'window title' you need). (I hope this is not too difficult or problematic/a good idea/useful(maybe for others too?)/not too much work)

maybe:
- a checkbox which -when checked- uses the selected 'Match Type' for the 'Window Details'
- or another listbox to select the type of a window to be used for the 'Window Details'
- or (idk if this could be problematic or even better) just always use the selected 'Match Type' for the 'Window Details'(+ type to match)
- or something else I can't think of right now

regards

Makes sense, I've added it to the TODO list for when I get some spare time to spend on XMBC!

Done - will be in 2.21 Beta 21.
It just looks at the match type, and only applies to Parent Window (as with ancestor it knows not when to stop!) - but that should be OK.
