Ignore Subfolders in Diashow

Post by HiddenX »

Hi there,

when I set up a diashow there is a setting like "use folders and subfolders". If it's not checked only pictures from the parent folder are displayed when I'm starting the slideshow- as intended.

But if I save the show and run the show by executing the saved file this option seems to be ignored. Is there a way to have the same behavior with the saved file as in the testing before?

Thats crucial for me because the parent directory contains a subdirectory with thumbnails :/

Thx in Advance
Carsten

Hi Pierre,

when I set up the slideshow there is an Option "Add Folders adds folders and all its subfolders.". So everything is working fine when I set up the slideshow and I am starting it with "go" at the GUI. The subfolder with thumbnails will be ignored at this time.

But when I save the settings and run the saved file this option will be ignored and all files in he subfolders will be displayed.

Here is the .sld-File (Actually there seems not to be an Option for the desired setting):

Code: Select all

# Slide Show Sequence
Timer = 1.000000
Loop = 1
FullScreen = 1
MouseNav = 0
WatchDir = 1
TitleBar = 0
Fit = 1
StrechVideo = 0
AudioLoop = 0
GifLoop = 0
High = 0
CenterWindow = 1
OnTop = 1
Frame = 1
ReadErrors = 0
RandomOrder = 1
ShowText = 1
SortOrder = -1
Text = Bild von <Date Taken [H:M]>
BackgroundColor = 0
FontName = "Arial Rounded MT Bold"
FontBold = 0
FontItalic = 0
FontHeight = -80
TextOpacity = 60
TextColor = ffffff
CharSet = 0
TextBackColor = ff00
TextPosition = 7
Effect = 1
EffectMask = 16777215
