Ran, when you go to preferences -> CUI -> Layout (something like that, cannot start foobar now to look) you see what your current layout is. Those are the panels that you have in foobar.
If all fails, just make a screenshot of that said layout page on preferences and we'll figure it out

I'm wondering how can I get foobars default behavior with the item properties panel with columns ui.

I want the behaviour that when I have an item in the playlist selected, the panel shows its information, and when I have nothing selected, it shows the info on the current playing item. Automatic doesnt do this, it just shows the current playing item.

I'd really appreciate any help.

Well I assume this is what you meant then:

Does it help?


This is how exactly I want it:



Now, is that possible?

I believe I've seen something like that before, browsing some other users' themes here, but I think it requires the use of Panel Stack Splitter and/or WSH Panel Mod. I don't use either of them though, so I've no idea.

Is it possible to change the color of the panel frames under Columns UI? I understand that this ties to the Windows appearance setting so it's naturally gray, or whatever color.

But to make it match with the panels, I may want to change all frames color to black for example.

Thank you very much.

In my item properties panel, via the "Colours and Fonts" preferences, I can see how to change the font for column titles vs group titles vs item font elements, but I can't find a way to specify a different color for each of those font elements - the preferences seem to just allow the one color element for "item properties".

Is there another way to set different colors for each of the font elements of column titles, group titles, and items within the item properties panel?  thanks

I know that you can change the color on text using Panel Stack Splitter, but I'm not sure if you can recreate the panel item properties using it.

As you can see in my picture below, the middle text between "Adam Green" and "You Get So Lucky" has "0-0-100" in RGB, so it's a bit blue.

This looks nice. How do you make the text on top of the spectrum?

Using panel stack splitter, and this script:

Code: [Select]
$font(Century Gothic,14,)
$drawstring(%artist%,1,10,%_width%,%_height%,0-0-0-255,hcenter,)
$drawstring(%album%,1,40,%_width%,%_height%,0-0-100-255,hcenter,)
$drawstring(%title%,1,70,%_width%,%_height%,0-0-0-255,hcenter,)

On my Windows 7 netbook with 1024x600 native resolution, the buttons at the bottom edge of the Buttons options (accessible via right-click on the Buttons toolbar) are hidden by the Windows taskbar (even, if the Windows taskbar's height is reduced to its minimum by changing the taskbar's icon size to 'small'). This happens in the Command picker (accessible via the 'Add' button in Buttons options) also. The issue can be worked around by enabling the auto-hide feature of the Windows taskbar (or by moving the taskbar to the left or right edge of the desktop, rather than the bottom or the top). Could this please be bugfixed in one of fb2k's future releases? Thank you very much.

That's Columns UI plugin, not fb2k itself.

Is there a way of changing the size of the status bar pane? It currently shows only 2 lines. I would like it with 3 or 4 lines.

Just switched from DUI to CUI, but I'm a little used to some of Facets features. After an hour or so of trying to figure out how to get the filters to "link" together, I got it working.

Not sure if it's possible, but I'd like to be able to filter results based on the playlist I'm on. Right now, if I click the filters, it'll do a filter of my library, and not the current playlist. Crossing my fingers that CUI has this too.

Thanks.

So sad that Columns UI doesn't support color control:

Quote from: Title Formatting Syntax Reference link=msg=0 date=
Color control: < >    Used to dim or highlight text, currently available in playlist and status bar. There are 3 dim and 3 highlight levels, accessible by repeating color control characters.

Your quote has zero to do with columns ui.

EDIT: I see that I misunderstood comment.

He wants the type of colour control (angle brackets) that the Default UI has per the quote, but implemented in Columns UI.

Want to report small glitch with CUI 0.3.8.8.

CUI toolbar, second row, right edge:

right side of the added toolbar element is cut, locking the toolbars causes unpredictable size of toolbar element

Maximsing the window and restoring your toolbar layout for that size, and locking it again should fix that resize glitch.

I think I already know the answer to this, but I have to ask anyway. Is there anyway to get information about the current filter being applied inside something like ELPlaylist?

Here's my situation explained in full. I've just recently realized that adding multiple artists to album artist will allow (e.g.) a track by ARTIST_A to show up twice in the filters, once individually under ARTIST_A's filter and again under "Various Artists" or "Soundtrack", etc. so long as I add those values into Album Artist as well. This works great because a lot of my individual songs or Split EPs get lost in the Various Artist category. I can also see guest appearances under ARTIST_B so long as I tag ARTIST_A as well.

However, when my filter is an artist (and not ALL artists or other playlists), I want albums ordered by date. At all other times I want it ordered by artist and then date. If I can somehow tell what filter is being applied then I can easily work it out.

Right now I see something like this for band Testament:
2005 - Soundtrack - with song by Testament
2001 - Testament - Album 1
2009 - Testament - Album 2
2011 - Testament - Album 3
2003 - Various Artist Compilation 1 with song by Testament

And I want it as:
2001 - Testament - Album 1
2003 - Various Artist Compilation 1 with song by Testament
2005 - Soundtrack - with song by Testament
2009 - Testament - Album 2
2011 - Testament - Album 3

Hi everyone,
This may not be in the right forum as it might be something to do with the FLAC tags instead of foobar2k itself, but I'll give it a go.

Basically I've ripped some FLACs from my CDs and some of the Artists show up in the "Filter" list, some don't. All the files playback fine, the "Artist" data for each file is set correctly, they are listed within foobar2k (categorised by album properly too), but they just aren't listed in the "Filter" list.
I will upload some photos below showing what works and what doesn't, if anyone has some tips it would be appreciated!




Without Columns UI:


You can see on the last screenshot that the expanded album at the bottom has the artist correctly attributed to the album. The top one has a blank artist for the album, and instead it's been attached to each individual song. As well as that weird track numbering scheme...

is there anyway to make the song that is currently playing bold so that it is more easily recognizable in the playlist?

Far from an expert on CUI, but in the standard playlist colors are straightforward. Changing attributes such as bold I do not think works.

If you want to get a start on it. Quick Search and the Columns wiki

When I'm sorting by album title...?



Most of my other albums are neatly organized when sorted this way, like so:



It seems to be only certain soundtracks and compilation albums that are doing this, but I don't get why...
