I don't know if it has been said before, or it is wanted this way, but if I press pause and then start the song starts from beginning and doesn't resume (as I expected it).
Realy good work, I like this UI.

Shortcutkeys doesn't appear to work when you have selected a playlist in the playlist list.

Fixed, redownload.

Found another thing, can't really pin it down, but i think it has to do with foo_shuffle or something, look at the screenshot, there's an extra space between the playlist and the playlist tabs.. not good

I dont see how foo_shuffle is related?

It might be the rebar moving around my windows/controls, it seemed to be doing that before, but Im not sure becuase that tabs got left behind, it doesnt make much sense. Ill rewrite the resizing/window placement code anyway, it seems to be a bit bugged.

Also, is there a way to reproduce it? And is it fixed if you resize the window?

1) the playback buttons are really light colored on my system... am i doing something wrong?... screenshot

2) foo_temple doesnt work with this UI for some reason...  i doubt its your fault musicmusic, but i thought it was worth a mention.

thanks for the nice work!

OT: @musicmusic: do you plan some improvements to the database explorer?  i have been using it a lot and i was wondering what's in store for it.

1. My fault, I didnt feel like using black so i went for a lighter colour. Obviously it doesnt look good for a lot of people, so i will make it a customisable file or just change it to black or something.

2. Dont see how it would be my fault, but I'll take a look, are you using foobar 0.8?

3. Not really can't be bothered, sorry..

1. Maybe a good idea to match it to the color used in windows prefs for button text?

2. No, using the latest non-beta.

Oh and one other thing (not a bug).

When double clicking on a column divider to auto size the column to the left, it makes itself the exact size of the largest item in the column.  My personal preference would be to make it slightly larger so it doesn't run into the words in the next column, but thats just me.  It might be helpful to others though.

One other thing comes to mind.

When minimizing, it only minimizes the main foobar window, rather than all windows (such as database search, album list, history, database explorer, etc).

Is this intended?  If so can you make it optional?  I have become accustomed to minimizing the main window also minimizing all windows.  This is epecially useful for album list/database explorer, as it makes it possible to hide the window without closing and then reopening (which can take a while with a large database).

Anyways thanks.

I'm not sure what you mean by "run into the words in the next column", do you mean they get too close?

Probably my fault, its not happening in current version here so it should be fixed for next version.

Yes exactly.

A little space is kinda nice i think.

What about sliding from one colour on the left to one colour to the right of one column, so you could make a change from blue over yellow to green over maybe four or five columns? So you wouldn't have 5 different coulours. Do you understand what I mean?

$transition()?

Of course, you'd have to use the same old $padcut() fixed width column crap again, or else the transitions won't be the same for each row...


(Or maybe this would call for some insane modification to the internal renderer... Option to create a gradient bar like with Photoshop's gradient tool... k, that's insane enough, but... then, create an array of colors as wide as the list, based on that gradient... then, draw the text without color codes, as all-white on black... then, use one of the channels from that as alpha level between background and the corresponding column in the gradient array... Voila! It looks cool, but it would be a royal pain in the ass to implement.)

It seems that foo_ui_columns doesn't play songs at order. When you have selected another song (=some other song, which is not currently playing), and the current song ends it jumps to the song that is selected.

Is this intended? hope you understand...

Sorry to hear that.

I would absolutely love to see something like dbexplorer implemented in a window pane on the side of the column ui.  Oh well...

Hrmm... its weird because i just tried it and it was working here..

I added a bit of space for now in alpha 9, which btw is compiled with the 0.8 sdk, so you will have to move to 0.8 beta if you want to use alpha 9, sorry.

Are you sure you dont just have follow cursor on?

I considered it before, but if I was going to add it would be later..

Ok alpha 9

changelog:
- support left/right/centre alignment for columns
- support playlist "filters" for columns
- some internal changes & fixes, and slightly less memory usage
- updated to 0.8 sdk, added some related features
- global colour string, with option to use individual string for each column
- changed colour of toolbar buttons; can also now also set your own bitmap for it
- added import/export tools
- fixed colour codes shown in tooltips
- "global" string also used when sorting.
- added some options from standard ui.

Warning! Config compatibility is broken in this version.

Also I ran out of space in the config screen. For now you need to remember:
colour spec syntax: text colour code|selected text|background|selected background
playlists filter separator is ;

Finally I havent testing the importer/exporter much, it would be nice if someone could verify everything is working as expected.

Also dont throw trash at the importer you will probably get what your asking for..

old 0.7.7 compatible alpha 8 is still here.

I wouldn't expect such a feature for a while, but it's good to know that at least it is (was?) being thought about.

With the default UI, the balloon tips pop up when the song is paused and unpaused as well.  Could you please consider adding this if it isn't too difficult?

wow
i am seriously digging this component 

i've more or less copy and pasted segments from my regular playlist, to keep all my formattting/colour codes, but arrange it all neatly in colums. great stuff

weird thing is though, the i mainly use litestep and hotkeys to call dynamp commands to control foobar2k, but these aren't working with foo_columns.

my hotkey to toggle playlist still works though

There seems to be a bug with adding or removing items from the playlist. When I add a lot of items, the scrollbar does not reflect the new list size. If I remove any entries above the file which is currently playing, it continues to repaint in the same spot. The list seems to correct itself if I scroll it, or if I do something which triggers a repaint.

Can you explain what exactly it is you are doing and how it is meant to work?

Thanks, I could only reproduce it when removing items, but it should be fixed anyway, redownload.

in 0.8, if you select a few files and right click you get a sort option, it's not there...(with the plugin)
