Resizing Cover Art in right hand view area

Unread post by logan5 » 04 Sep 2012, 11:46

Hey all! I was wondering if there was a way to resize the box art within the frontend in the far right column? ECC seems to lock the viewing area to 320x240 and I'd like to make the view area bigger. I know in some frontends that stretching the window expands the art...Anyone know if this is possible? Thanks a lot!

Hi Phoenix, any chance of this being implemented? I'd love to use ECC as my main frontend but I need large sized artwork to display. If there is anyway to implement manual resizing of the images of those displayed to the right side of the frontend I'd be a happy guy :happy:

Hi Logan5,

I looked in to this, it's not that simple!, PHP-GTK know's only a "frame"work where only 1 frame "left side" can be moved with the mouse, i tried to change the GUI several times....but failed, it's too complicated and i think it's impossible todo this in the GUI...

BUT...i will look into this to find the proper setting for the "right side" menu, so you can adjust this manually for yourself :yes_head:

Ok, here is the DO-IT-YOUR-SELF make my left side bigger! (for v1.13) :sorcerer:

Please note that when updating ECC your "own edited" files may be overwritten!!, so please DISABLE ECC-UPDATE!! :smartass:

1. Open the GLADE GUI editor (from top menu in ECC)
2. Open the file "ecc-system\gui\gui.glade"
3. Go to here and enter for example 500 in width for the right side:
ecc_bigger_images_glade.png
4. Save GUI

5. Open "ecc-system\ecc.php" goto line 8762 (use notepad++ if nessesary to see the linecount)
6. Change the 240 in to 500, like here:
ecc_bigger_images_php.png
7. Save the PHP file.

8. Run ECC, TADA! :-"

First let me say thank you Phoenix for fulfilling my request!

I got through the tutorial fine until the last part. Where you said "line 8762" in notepad++ I only have "8663" lines. I have something similar at 8532 (public function mainImageListViewUpdate())

I tried editing that line to 500 from 240 but the image is still the same size. Thanks a lot for your help and time!!!

BTW, I'm using the v1.13 build:02 (2012.9.10) upd00539

Hi logan5,

i just tried it like Phoenix said.
It works ok for me. Using latest update 0539, and as text editor i used "total edit"
I found the line 8762. (ecc.php last line is 8893 for me...)
So, i changed the view to 640 :D
Here's the final :

Thanks Vicman for testing this!

@Logan,
Maybe there could be a problem with eccUpdate?? wich is not updating files :online2long: ...so my idea is if you want to:

1. install a fresh ECC v1.13 somewhere else on your computer
2. update this installation to update 00539
3. check ecc.php again

Let me know if there aren't enough lines! :detective:

Ps. if you adjusted this inside the function like we did...it should work....strange...
