Layouts

A Layout is basically a single remote, containing different Widgets (such as Buttons) for a certain purpose. Usually you would create at least one layout for every program you want to control (XBMC, MediaMonkey, ...) but of course you don't have to stick to this scheme.
In Edit Mode, you can create a new layout by opening the layout list on the left of the terRemote app and clicking on "-create layout-". To access the layout properties in Edit Mode, either long press on the layout name in the list or choose "Layout Properties" in the options.
  • Name: The name of the layout. It is also used as identifier for actions regarding layouts.
  • Orientation: The orientation of the layout.
  • Display different layout on orientation change: This option is only available if you choose "portrait" or "landscape" as orientation. Here, you can choose to display a different layout whenever the device's orientation differs from the one chosen above. One application for this feature would be to display a keyboard-layout when you turn the device. Another use is to create a layout with rearranged buttons so that no space is wasted in either portrait or landscape mode.
  • Use in navigation: When this is deactivated, the layout will be skipped when you move to the next / previous layout either by using the corresponding action or the swipe function of the remote.
  • Hide Layout in the List: Choose this if you don't want the layout to appear in the list on the left of the remote. Note that while you are in Edit Mode, all layouts will appear in that list regardless of this option.
  • Icon: This is the icon of the layout that appears for example in the layout list on the left of the remote.
  • Background: The background of the layout. You can choose either a shape or a picture file. Note that for performance reasons, you should not use pictures that exceed your device's resolution.
  • Server: The default server used by the layout. This option is only useful if you choose "layout default" on a network action.
