HBO Go item titles

Thu May 16, 2013 2:33 pm

Hey guys, I noticed that by using "four-column-flat-landscape" as the grid style it is possible to achieve a view hbogo-like. I was wondering if it's also possible to have the titles under the items instead of the description box.
Is this possible?
Thanks!
Ignacio

You need to use "two-row-flat-landscape-custom" to have titles under the items. In that case, just set the ShortDescriptionLine1 and ShortDescriptionLine2 metadata attributes. If you leave off ShortDescriptionLine2, then ShortDescriptionLine1 will wrap, if necessary.

One more question TheEndless, I can't seem to find the setting for the title color under the images in this type of gridScreen.

You're on your own there, I'm afraid. I don't know of any way to change those colors, either.

So you are also doing this style, do either of you know if there is a way to turn off the popup description box? The SetDescriptionVisible() doesn't seem to be doing anything. Thanks.

Edit: Just figured it out, but for those that are also trying. I had to call the function AFTER the show

screen.Show()
screen.SetDescriptionVisible(false)

I'm also looking for a way to set the title color in the two-row-flat-landscape-custom grid style. Is it possible that it is just hard-coded to be near-white? Anyone have any idea on that?

There is no app manager property to set the color of the description 1 and 2 text lines in a grid screen.
