fe.Listbox
  • format_string - Get/set the format for the text to display in each list entry. Magic tokens can be used here, see Magic Tokens for more information. If empty, game titles will be displayed (i.e. the same behaviour as if set to "[Title]"). Default is an empty value.

Can use a function for a magic token. Create your function to return your proper string. Typing on a phone while away from home. Hopefully you have enough to get started, assuming it works.

Hello keilmillerjr

Find how to chop game name as below code. I will try it on tonight.

But I still not know how to use "magic token" for adding index number of games. Could you help me to complete the script?. Many Thanks.

listbox.format_string = "[SortValue]";

I'll try to get it started if I have a slow part of my work day. Down here in florida working 14 hour days for two weeks.

Working on a pos Android phone, so I will edit as I go as to not loose what I type.

Code: [Select]
function Title(index_offset) {

}

local listbox = fe.add_listbox( x, y, w, H );
listbox.format_string = "[!Title(index_offset)]";

Woohoo! Did passing the index_offset to the magic token work? I haven't tried it yet and I am curious.

How do you guys like using the fe.layout.preserve_aspect_ratio? I assume you need to turn off aspect_ratio for it to scale to different resolutions. I'm curious if there's an advantage to using it compared to the way I auto-scale my layouts. It would be less coding for sure.

Just wanted to get some feedback on any scaling issues. Thanks...

Keilmillerjr-

BTW, your mvscomplete layout looks nice and clean on a crt monitor.
