DVD Profiler Awards/Episodes Plugin
« on: May 09, 2010, 07:24:53 PM »
As some of you do not visit the Invelos forums regularly anymore, I decided to also open up a thread for my Awards plugin here.
I will update you, if new award files or a new plugin version are available on my homepage. And you can ask questions if you are having trouble with it.

If you want to contribute award data, here is in my opinion the best way to do it:
- make sure you have the most up-to-date version of the award data if you update an existing award
- use the award editor in my program "Cinematic Collection Viewer" (Edit->Awards...)
- Export the award as XML (File->Export->Awards...). For each award a seperate XML File.
- Send it to me and I will include it with the next update

Tom, is it possible for me to configure the plug-in so I can change the background color and text colors?

New version: v1.6
Finally! It has been a while since I released a new version.

New: Transfer selected/flagged profiles to CCV database
     If no profile is flagged, currently selected profile will be transferred. Toolbar Icon is also available for this feature.
     This feature has the same effect as exporting the profile to XML and importing it in Cinematic Collection Viewer.
     This feature is interesting to those who use Cinematic Collection Viewer in parallel to DVD Profiler.
New: Automatically transfer profile changes to CCV database
     If enabled (Tools->CCVPlugin->Auto-Sync Viewer Profile), all changes done to a DVD Profiler profile will automatically be transferred to the CCV database
     This feature is interesting to those who use Cinematic Collection Viewer in parallel to DVD Profiler.
New: Additional Info window
     New window which will display all additional infos entered for the selected profile in the CCV database
Change: Award display algorithm synched with current version of Cinematic Collection Viewer

Notes:
- I first implemented the syncing of the profiles about two years ago. I never released it, because there is a problem when DVD Profiler has been running for a few days.
After that time an unhandled exception occurs when using this feature. Recently I got a chance to look further into it and I found out, that a function I use from the Profiler PluginAPI is causing this problem.
There is nothing I can do about it (I have reported this bug). When this happens, only a restart of DVD Profiler helps. When this error happens, no data is lost. It happens during reading of the profile infos. No changes to the Viewer database has been done at this point.
- I personally have been using the manual syncing for a long time now. I don't expect any major problems with that.
  But I haven't used the auto-syncing much, because I like to work on the cast and crew in CCViewer while I am working on the other infos in DVD Profiler in parallel. When using auto-sync I would overwrite my cast and crew changes before I have a chance to copy them to the DVD Profiler profile.
  So I don't have any experience using this feature in the long term. Data loss is not to be expected though if a problem should arrise.
  By default this feature is disabled.

Question for you Tom...

I use this plugin but I do not use the CCV program. So when I updated the plugin to the lasted version I disabled the the button to sync with the CCV profile. Which is fine till I close the program... but once I reopen the program the button is showing it again.... making me disable the button every time I open the program.

Any ideas on how to make it stay disabled?
