Removal of color tags from list item

Hello Yatse,

I recently tried the remote app on my Android phone and noticed that Kodi [COLOR] tags don’t get removed in the list from set genre information.

Can you please consider removing the color tags from list item information in a future update?

For example when you set the list item genre information using:

labelText = ‘[COLOR blue]tagisremoved[/COLOR]’
genreText = ‘[COLOR gray]tagnotremoved[/COLOR]’
listItem = xbmcgui.ListItem()
listItem.setInfo(‘video’, {‘MediaType’: ‘movie’, ‘genre’: genreText})

The color tag from genre does not get removed for both mediatype movie and tvshow.

Thanks and kind regards

Please provide details about the addon generating those kind of data and / or logs during a sync.

Thanks for the response, I did some testing and it seems like your app does remove the [COLOR] tag from the label but not from the genre provided.

Here are the logged results, hope this helps:

Hum never saw a normal addon using bbcode there but I’ll see to remove there too.

Thanks! hope it is not too much work to add this feature.

I just noticed the Yatse beta got updated with BBcode removal and tested it.

The app does now remove the [COLOR] tag from items in the list but it still shows them in the player information.


Just wanted to let you know and thank you once again for making those changes.
