Displaying art


Recommended Posts

Thank you for the reply. Admittedly I’m pretty much a noob at this.. so that being said, it’s not working. I’m trying to use the section of code that was originally set for clear logo. I tried inserting the code provided and no result. I’m not getting any errors so makes me think I am messing up the path to the art work. Thanks for any help

Okay, so I'm not entirely sure what you are trying to do. Based on the code, it looks like you are trying to post a static image and not really what you originally said you wanted to.

If this is the case, then you would just use this code:

<Image Source="LAUNCHBOX_THEME_FOLDER/Images/Arcade.jpg" Stretch="Uniform" />

That will display Arcade.jpg which should be located within your theme's Images folder. Stretch Uniform means the image will keep its original aspect ratio and deform.

My goal is that in my favorites and collections playlists that the platform art would appear for respective game currently selected. So any Arcade game shows the same arcade.jpg. Hope that’s a little clearer. Thanks again 

Then just copy and paste this code, don't alter it:

<Image Source="{Binding ActiveGame.Platform, StringFormat='{}LAUNCHBOX_THEME_FOLDER/Images/{0}.jpg'}" />

The code will look inside of your theme's Images folder for a file name based off of the active game's platform.

So if the game's platform is Nintendo Entertainment System, then it will be looking inside the Images folder for a file called Nintendo Entertainment System.jpg
