XMBML module-action

From PS3 Developer wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Description[edit]

module-action is an XMBML command that works like a module (.sprx file) intercom, allowing XMBML files to use/send commands to a selected module, so it can perform functions outside the limits of the module managing that XMB Category.

The list of usable modules is indexed in xmb_plugin.sprx (modules availables in main XMB) and xmb_ingame.sprx (modules availables in in-game XMB) and contains the module reference, the path to the module (.sprx file), and the path to the associated resource (.rco file).

All the .sprx modules are stored in path: /dev_flash/vsh/module/ and the .rco resource files in path: /dev_flash/vsh/resource/

Common uses[edit]

A Web-Site link[edit]

This type of entry cab be placed on the root of the XMB category or in an XMB Item Tree. It makes a call to webbrowser_plugin.sprx

Codecode
		<View id="seg_xmb_weblink">
			<Attributes>
				<Table key="link_1">
					<Pair key="icon"><String>/dev_hdd0/devwiki_icon.png</String></Pair>
					<Pair key="title"><String>PS3 Dev Wiki</String></Pair>
					<Pair key="module_name"><String>webbrowser_plugin</String></Pair>
					<Pair key="module_action"><String>http://www.psdevwiki.com/</String></Pair>
  				</Table>
			</Attributes>
			<Items>
				<Item class="type:x-xmb/module-action" key="link_1" attr="link_1"/>
			</Items>
		</View>
  • Important Notes:
    • The 'Attributes' for this Web-Link follows the Attribute rules for a 'module-action' entry.
    • The 'webbrowser_plugin' module has been used to handle the request in the 'module_action' pair key, which is a web address
    • The 'attr' in the Items sub-entry is the same as the table key in the 'Attributes' sub-entry.
    • Remember that the icon_rsc string will search for the icon 'dev_wiki_icon' inside the rco file associated with the XMB category this XMBML code is placed, or alternativelly inside explore_plugin_full.rco
    • The title will just print the contents of the string.

Stubs[edit]

Can be used to stub XMB items in Shop Firmware. All firmwares use this method to stub XMB items which have been stubbed. With the exception of some XMB items which make "sel://" calls (such as "What's New") which have been left in-tact and Shop FW modules have only recently (4.30+?) blocked these calls returning the "This operation cannot be used during demonstration mode" message.
