#16635 closed Bugs (Fixed)

Dynamically filled lists get stalled

Reported by: BobCratchett Owned by: BigNoid
Priority: 4 - Normal
Component: Graphical User Interface (GUI) Version: 17.0 "Krypton" Beta4
Severity: Normal Keywords: list, content, dynamic
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Platform: All


When using a list filled straight from a path - be that a node, plugin, etc - if the window it is on is closed before the list is filled, when the window is re-opened the list will be empty and Kodi won't make any attempt to load it again.

To reproduce, add a new window to Confluence or Estuary, with a list control in it.

Set the content to <content>videodb://movies/titles/</content> - or any other path that takes a few seconds to load.

Add a button to launch the window.

Open the window, immediately close it, then re-open. The list won't populate.

Refresh the skin or reload Kodi and open the window. The list will populate after a few seconds.

This issue has been confirmed on Jarvis and Krypton. Debug log attached - showing first opening, closing and re-opening the window (to show the issue), then reloading the skin and opening the window (to show the list works), and happy to provide further information.

I can confirm too, also happens on the homescreen. Move away from home before the widget with the dynamic path was actually fully loaded and it will stay empty even if returning to home.

Please retry with a newer nightly version to confirm issue still exists

I can confirm this issue is still reproducible with the latest nightly build for Mac.

See https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/10931 for a fix of this issue. With that change lists always load on window open.

Thanks for looking into this BigNoid. I can confirm with 10931 I'm unable to reproduce the issue :)
