Horizontal filters wheel
« on: June 13, 2020, 03:07:38 AM »
Hello,

How to display the horizontal filter wheel (ALL/FAVOURITES at the top of the screen), in addition to the game selection wheel in a layout that does not have one ?

What code to put in the layout file ?

Thanks you !

Wheel is not a built in feature of AttractMode. Check included modules, modules posted on forum, or create your own! AttractMode is awesome due to its freedom with a scripting language. It also means that it isn't as easy as point and click or xml based front ends.

this "wheel" is present in the original layout but not in the one I use.

I don't know if it's really a wheel. It displays the list of filters using left and right keys/boutons.

I can't copy / paste the code because I don't know which one.

Filter Grid, Grid, Orbit and Reflect layouts use the conveyor module. If you do not know which original layout, then run attract-mode and try each layout. Then look at the source code.

The problem is that I don't know which code to copy from the layout that owns it.

In fact, it is this wheel that I would like to add in my layout.

If I go to the right or to the left the filters act and correctly display the list of games but the display of the name of the filter does not appear anywhere ...

I would like it to appear as in the attached image.

Thank you.

I found this code .... but if I copy it the name of the filters is still not displayed ... :

// Category
local categoryW = floor( bth * 2.5 )
local categoryH = floor( bth * 0.25 )
local categoryX = floor(( flw - crw ) * 0.5 - categoryW * 0.5 + flx)
local categoryY = floor( bth * 0.5 ) - floor( categoryH * 0.5 )
local category = fe.add_text("[FilterName]", categoryX, categoryY, categoryW, categoryH )
category.align = Align.Centre
category.filter_offset = 0
category.style = Style.Regular
category.charsize = floor(category.height * 1000/701)
category.font = "BebasNeueBold.otf"

local categoryLeft = fe.add_text("[FilterName]", 0, categoryY, categoryW, categoryH )
categoryLeft.align = Align.Centre
categoryLeft.filter_offset = -1
categoryLeft.set_rgb(selRGB[0],selRGB[1],selRGB[2])
categoryLeft.style = Style.Regular
categoryLeft.charsize = floor(category.height * 1000/700)
categoryLeft.font = "BebasNeueBook.otf"

local categoryRight = fe.add_text("[FilterName]", 0, categoryY, categoryW, categoryH )
categoryRight.align = Align.Centre
categoryRight.filter_offset = 1
categoryRight.set_rgb(selRGB[0],selRGB[1],selRGB[2])
categoryRight.style = Style.Regular
categoryRight.charsize = floor(category.height * 1000/701)
categoryRight.font = "BebasNeueBook.otf"

local categoryLeft2 = fe.add_text("[FilterName]", 0, categoryY, categoryW, categoryH )
categoryLeft2.align = Align.Centre
categoryLeft2.filter_offset = -2
categoryLeft2.set_rgb(selRGB[0],selRGB[1],selRGB[2])
categoryLeft2.style = Style.Regular
categoryLeft2.charsize = floor(category.height * 1000/701)
categoryLeft2.alpha = 0
categoryLeft2.font = "BebasNeueBook.otf"

local categoryRight2 = fe.add_text("[FilterName]", 0, categoryY, categoryW, categoryH )
categoryRight2.align = Align.Centre
categoryRight2.filter_offset = 2
categoryRight2.set_rgb(selRGB[0],selRGB[1],selRGB[2])
categoryRight2.style = Style.Regular
categoryRight2.charsize = floor(category.height * 1000/701)
categoryRight2.alpha = 0
categoryRight2.font = "BebasNeueBook.otf"


local categoryGap = floor( bth * 0.225 )
categoryLeft.x = category.x - category.msg_width / 2 - categoryLeft.msg_width / 2 - categoryGap
categoryRight.x = category.x + category.msg_width / 2 + categoryRight.msg_width / 2 + categoryGap
categoryLeft2.x = categoryLeft.x - categoryLeft.msg_width / 2 - categoryLeft2.msg_width / 2 - categoryGap
categoryRight2.x = categoryRight.x + categoryRight.msg_width / 2  + categoryRight2.msg_width / 2 + categoryGap

// Category Animations
local categoryOvershot = 4
local categorySmoothing = 0.9
local categoryAnimX = Animate( category, "x", categoryOvershot, 0, categorySmoothing )
local categoryLeftAnimX = Animate( categoryLeft, "x", categoryOvershot, 0, categorySmoothing )
local categoryRightAnimX = Animate( categoryRight, "x", categoryOvershot, 0, categorySmoothing )
local categoryLeft2AnimX = Animate( categoryLeft2, "x", categoryOvershot, 0, categorySmoothing )
local categoryRight2AnimX = Animate( categoryRight2, "x", categoryOvershot, 0, categorySmoothing )
local categoryLeftAnimA = Animate( categoryLeft, "alpha", categoryOvershot, 0, categorySmoothing )
local categoryRightAnimA = Animate( categoryRight, "alpha", categoryOvershot, 0, categorySmoothing )
local categoryLeft2AnimA = Animate( categoryLeft2, "alpha", categoryOvershot, 0, categorySmoothing )
local categoryRight2AnimA = Animate( categoryRight2, "alpha", categoryOvershot, 0, categorySmoothing )


// List Entry
local gameListEntryW = floor( bth * 2.5 )
local gameListEntryH = floor( bth * 0.25 )
local gameListEntryY = floor( bth / 2.0 ) - floor( gameListEntryH / 2 )
local gameListEntry = fe.add_text("[ListEntry]/[ListSize]", flx + flw - crw - gameListEntryW, gameListEntryY , gameListEntryW, gameListEntryH )
gameListEntry.align = Align.Right
gameListEntry.style = Style.Regular
gameListEntry.font = "BebasNeueLight.otf"
gameListEntry.set_rgb(titRGB[0],titRGB[1],titRGB[2])
gameListEntry.charsize = floor(gameListEntry.height * 1000/700)

Read layouts.md, squirrel-lang docs, and start looking at your console log for error messages. Copy and paste works with me word, not programming- unless you understand the code and how to debug.

Some classes you are trying to use might be in a module that you do not have loaded, like animate. I can't do magic to read your log.
