  • Type of Change:  Feature

Implement new checkbutton control (1.2.0)

Description of Change

The Checkbutton control was introduced in 1.2.0 (see Checkbutton Control Created) as a replacement for the obsolete togglebutton control. 

In 1.3.0 alpha checkbutton has been implemented in the Settings > TV window (and will be implemented in many Settings windows in 1.3.0 beta).

Thus skins should add a default checkbutton control to their references.xml. See Default skin references.xml for example,

Skins should also as well as add the new buttons (ID 40 and 41) to settings_tv.xml

There are still instances in the MediaPortal core where a togglebutton control is used. 

Note: The togglebutton control is scheduled to be completely removed from MediaPortal in 1.4.0.
