Hello Elkin,

I have started with this feature.
Currently I try to "hardcode" two users without database support.
I want to use some kind of toggle Button to select/deselect a watched
recording for a user.
I have found MythUICheckBox. But all references use a XML file via
checkBox = dynamic_cast<MythUICheckBox*>(GetChild("foo"));
So it is not possible to create a popup for a dynamic count of users?

Which GUI type do you suggest? It should be some sort of a "scrollable"
list with toggle-buttons.
Does something like this exist?

Thank you
