New Info Panel
« on: July 05, 2005, 04:53:00 AM »

this is an info panel i came up with, i felt the others crouded the screen too much having info and clock seperate.
full credit goes out to the original creators of the info panels, i just copy and pasted most of there code.

music
disc type
ip address
disc space
cpu temp

paste at the very bottom of default.xip/default.xap

CODE

function DriveSpace( sDrive )
{
var nFreeSpace = theHardDrive.GetFreeSpace(sDrive + "\\");
      var nTotalSpace = theHardDrive.GetTotalSpace(sDrive + "\\");
if (nTotalSpace == 0) { return ""; }
return nFreeSpace + "MB";
}

function ChangeDisplay()
{

var coverpath;
var exists;
var albumtext = "";
var songtext = "";
var drive = "";
var c = theMainMenu.children[0].children[0];

var nMaxDisplay = 6;
if (nDisplayNum > nMaxDisplay) { nDisplayNum = 1; }
if (nDisplayNum < 1) { nDisplayNum = nMaxDisplay; }
var nIntTemp = theConfig.GetInternalTemp();
var nCPUTemp = theConfig.GetCPUTemp();
var sScale = "C";
var e = "";


  if( e == "fahrenheit" )
  {
      sScale = "F";
             nIntTemp = Math.round(nIntTemp * 9/5 + 32);
             nCPUTemp = Math.round(nCPUTemp * 9/5 + 32);
  }
  else if( e == "kelvin" )
  {
      sScale = "K";
             nIntTemp = nIntTemp + 273;
             nCPUTemp = nCPUTemp + 273;
  }

if (nDisplayNum == 1)
{
    albumtext = theMusicCollection.GetSoundtrackName(currentAlbum);
    songtext = theMusicCollection.GetSoundtrackSongName(currentAlbum, currentTrack);
    coverpath = "A:\\album covers\\" + albumtext + ".jpg";
    exists = theHardDrive.FileExists( coverpath );

    if( exists == true )
    {
    c.theScreenAlbumArt.url = coverpath;
    }
    else
    {
    c.theScreenAlbumArt.url = "A:\\album covers\\dvdempty.xbx";
    }
    }

else if (nDisplayNum == 2)
{
    albumtext = "Disc Type:";
    songtext = theDiscDrive.discType;

    if( theDiscDrive.discType == "Video" )
    {
    c.theScreenAlbumArt.url = "A:\\album covers\\dvdvideo.xbx";
    }

    else if(theDiscDrive.discType == "Title")
    {
    c.theScreenAlbumArt.url = "A:\\album covers\\dvdtitle.xbx";
    }

    else if(theDiscDrive.discType == "none")
    {
    c.theScreenAlbumArt.url = "A:\\album covers\\dvdempty.xbx";
    }

    else if(theDiscDrive.discType == "Audio")
    {
    c.theScreenAlbumArt.url = "A:\\album covers\\dvdaudio.xbx";
    }

    else if(theDiscDrive.discType == "unknown")
    {
    c.theScreenAlbumArt.url = "A:\\album covers\\dvdunknown.xbx";
    }
}

else if (nDisplayNum == 3)
{
    albumtext = "IP Address:";
    songtext = theXboxNetwork.GetXboxIP();
    c.theScreenAlbumArt.url = "A:\\album covers\\ipaddy.xbx";
}

else if (nDisplayNum == 4)
{
    drive = "F:";
    albumtext = "Free Space On F:";
    songtext = DriveSpace(drive);
    c.theScreenAlbumArt.url = "A:\\album covers\\harddisc.xbx";
}

//else if (nDisplayNum == 5)
//{
//    drive = "G:";
//    albumtext = "Free Space On G:";
//    songtext = DriveSpace(drive);
//    c.theScreenAlbumArt.url = "A:\\album covers\\dvdempty.xbx";
//}

else if (nDisplayNum == 5)
{
    albumtext = "CPU Temp:";
    songtext = nIntTemp + " " + sScale;
    c.theScreenAlbumArt.url = "A:\\album covers\\info.xbx";
}

else if (nDisplayNum == 6)
{
    albumtext = "MB Temp:";
    songtext = nCPUTemp + " " + sScale;
    c.theScreenAlbumArt.url = "A:\\album covers\\info.xbx";
}

c.theSoundtrackSongInfoText.text = songtext;
c.theSoundtrackAlbumInfoText.text = albumtext;

}



Then find:
CODE


function MusicPlayerPlay()
{
theMusicPlayer.url = "st:" + theMusicCollection.GetSoundtrackSongID( currentAlbum, currentTrack );
log("Playing " + theMusicPlayer.url);
DisableAmbientAudio();
theMusicPlayer.Play();
}



and add another line so it looks like this:

CODE


function MusicPlayerPlay()
{
theMusicPlayer.url = "st:" + theMusicCollection.GetSoundtrackSongID( currentAlbum, currentTrack );
log("Playing " + theMusicPlayer.url);
DisableAmbientAudio();
theMusicPlayer.Play();
if (nDisplayNum == 1) { ChangeDisplay(); }
}



next find

CODE


var currentAlbum;
var currentTrack;



and put this under:

CODE


var nDisplayNum;



scroll down a few lines to find:

CODE


currentAlbum = 0;
currentTrack = 0;



and add this right after:

CODE


nDisplayNum = 1;



now find:

CODE


  control DEF theMainMenuJoy Joystick
  {



and put this after that slash

CODE


function OnLeftThumbDown()
{
          PlaySoundB();
   nDisplayNum = nDisplayNum + 1;
   ChangeDisplay();
}

      function OnRightThumbDown()
{
          PlaySoundB();
   nDisplayNum = nDisplayNum - 1;
   ChangeDisplay();
}



another thing i like to use is this:

CODE


function OnYDown()
      {

       var c = theMainMenu.children[0].children[0];
       if ( c.theMainMenuClock.visible == true )
       {
        if (nDisplayNum == 1)
        {
         MusicPlayerRandom();
        }
        else if (nDisplayNum == 2)
        {
         AutoLaunch();
        }
       }
       else
       {}

      }            



that code will alow you to change track when in music panel and launch disc when in disc type by pressing the Y button

now open main_menu.xip/default.xap and paste this at the very bottom

CODE


DEF theMainMenuClock Transform
        {
        visible true
        fade 0.75
            children

you also need to copy these files from the memory.xip file and paste them into main_menu.xip

MEM_L1_panel_meta-FACES.xm
MEM_L1_panel_metasupport-FACES.xm
MU_panel_backing-FACES.xm

now you need to use files from comm build and paste them in the album covers directory. the files needed are:

dvdaudio.xbx
dvdempty.xbx
dvdtitle.xbx
dvdunknown.xbx
dvdvideo.xbx

others are custom files but you can just copy and rename dvdempty.xbx to:

harddisc.xbx
info.xbx
ipaddy.xbx

and thats SHOULD be it

good luck :)

in an attempt to resolve the non displaying ip adress, cpu temp and free disk space i modified the code

i changed

CODE
function OnLeftThumbDown()
{
         PlaySoundB();
  nDisplayNum = nDisplayNum + 1;
  ChangeDisplay();


to

CODE
function OnLeftThumbDown()
{
         PlaySoundB();
  TogglenDisplayNum();
  ChangeDisplay();


and added
CODE
function TogglenDisplayNum
}
var c = theMainMenu.children[0].children[0];
if (b.toLowerCase() == "1") { RefreshMenu("2"); }
else if (b.toLowerCase() == "2") { RefreshMenu("3"); }
else if (b.toLowerCase() == "3") { RefreshMenu("4"); }
else if (b.toLowerCase() == "5") { RefreshMenu("6"); }
else if (b.toLowerCase() == "6") { RefreshMenu("1"); }

to the bottom of default .xap

does this code belong in config.xap/main menu.xip, or is it flawed? can someone with experience of uix code tell me?

i really haven't look through the whole code

but my guess would be

you want default.xip/config.xap

or

default.xip/default.xap


let me know if that works 4 ya

It should not be too difficult to get this working....

The code states that you need to create these 3 files

harddisc.xbx
info.xbx
ipaddy.xbx

Have you done that?

Mine would not work so I went through and commented out all of the references to a:/ and that fixed it.
