I seem to have ran into some trouble with the Artwork View:
I have tried setting Displayed Track to "Automatic (current selection/playing item)" and "Automatic (playlist selection/playing item)" but neither is following my current selection.  However, just setting it to "Current Selection" works as expected.  Am I misunderstanding "Automatic (current selection/playing item)" -- I'm interpreting it to be show the artwork for whatever item I have currently selected otherwise show the artwork for my currently playing item.


If there's an item playing, it automatically displays corresponding album art, if not it shows either "current selection" (any selected item in whatever panel) or "playlist selection" (selected item in playlist, nowhere else)

Would it be possible to add an variable to grouping patterns returning count of grouped elements?

Sorry, missed that. Still - we know it's not possible atm, but I was asking about possibility of implementing it (-;

i know but is there a way to get a similiar solution to this problem?
the filters in the CUI don't have a good search system, but in the default UI the tracks are played which i select. (which i actually don't want)

So I'm guessing if I want only the current selection to show (regardless of if any item is being played), I cannot select either of the Automatic but rather "Current Selection" and turn on "Cursor follows Playback" ?

Thanks for your help!

See the Columns UI wiki for a list of requests and feature suggestions. It's listed there below NG Playlist.

While I'm at it: Is it planned to have the ability to disable the album art for certain groups? I'm thinking of displaying album art only if the number of items in the group is equal %totaltracks%. This would be extremely useful for playlists with full albums and single tracks mixed. It would also be possible to display album art only for albums which have more tracks than just two or three. Saves space.

An option to change the vertical padding of the group headers would be very useful.

@andrea.ippo

By default incoming files will be path sorted, so i guess your files are named without a tracknumber at the beginning. They are alphabetically in their folders?
If you don't want to rename your files, go to: Preferences-->General "Sort incoming files by" and type %album artist% %date% %album% %tracknumber%
That should do the job next time you'll add files to your playlists

Oh, and the grouping in NG Playlist:
I have set it up as
[$upper(%album artist%)][ $char(8226) %album%] and it works here.

EDIT: typo

what about artists that begin with "the"? i dont want them in with the artists that begin with "t" if you know what i mean

[$stripprefix($upper(%album artist%))][ $char(8226) %album%]
to remove the "The" (and an "A", too) or
[$swapprefix($upper(%album artist%))][ $char(8226) %album%]
if you want to keep the "The" (and an "A") after a comma at the end of the artists name.

The same for sorting the incoming files:
$stripprefix(%album artist%) %date% %album% %tracknumber%
or
$swapprefix(%album artist%) %date% %album% %tracknumber%

It sorts automatically all incoming files if you paste this string into "Preferences --> General --> Sort incoming files by".

For already existing playlists i advice to select all files, right-click in the playlist and choose "Sort --> Sort by...", than copy and paste this string into the box.

@musicmusic:
I don't know if this is a bug, but in the earlier builds you could "search" (just type a letter) in the filter panels without open the search box

maybe you could readd this feature?

take care

Why don't you want to have a taskbar button when foobar2000 is open anyways? If you want it hidden, just minimize foobar2000. This is standard acceptable behavior on Windows. All top level windows deserve a taskbar button.
Blame it on the taskbar instead, but don't you ever blame it on applications that your taskbar is "cluttered".
And yes, Windows 7's taskbar is a lot less cluttered. Finally MS fixed it.

There are 3rd party tools that allows you to hide it.  Also you can minimize it to the System Tray (Minimize to Tray).
I'm assuming [Start Menu === Task Bar ===== System Tray = Clock].

This is probably one of the many utilities that can hide it for you.  I have used this before and it was relatively simple though not as straightforward.

Calm down mate i'm not blaming the applications, the taskbar should have these options yes. As I have foobar on the desktop and visible all the time I don't need it to be on the taskbar.

Netvets that tool looks useful but i'm on x64 so it won't work.

Maybe just a (setting for the) minimum number of tracks in a group before displayed the art.

I didn't change anything, but it seems it was broken if there was a colour code in the way. I will fix that, thanks.

Lifehacker mentions an application you can look at.  I somewhat doubt it'll work on x64 but it's worth a look.  This seems to minimize to tray which is already available with Columns UI but minimizes them all to one spot.  Maybe this can work (similar to CMDOW but more recent).  Hopefully these helped.

I'm having a problem mixing bitmap and PNG button icons.

If I set a png as an icon after (lower in the list than) some bitmaps then all the bitmaps display as the png file:

If it comes before they are blank (stop has no associated image):

Yes slightly odd behaviour.. but it's probably something to do with them not being the same dimensions. Default buttons are 16x16 now.
