It should not show up when other parts of the UI are focused, unless 'Playback follows cursor' is enabled. If you have 'Playback follows cursor' enabled, then that frame is the cursor referred to.

Hi guys! foobar2000 v.2 finally started sounding like v.0.8.3. And I'm trying to move my theme, which I've been used to for almost 20 years, to the new version of Columns UI. It's a pity that the old config does not fit the new version (.
But thank you for having a forum with the developer).
How to place the playing time of a track on the left in the status bar?

Sorry, I was wrong. Old guy already)
How to place the playback time of a file on the right?
The code from Columns UI foobar 0.8.3 does not work in the new version(.

Could you post the code that's not working? Where are you putting that code?

In the status bar, you can use a single $tab() before some text to make that text right-aligned. Note also that there is both a status bar and a status pane, so make sure you're using and configuring the one you want.

Thanks for the answer! I have the code from your Column UI v. 0.1.2., Apparently that’s why it doesn’t fit into the modern version). I figured out the statusbar with your help, thank you! In general, this old Column UI v.0.1.2 is simply fantastic in its ability to customize its appearance! The new v.2 does not have such customization options, as I am beginning to understand! But I found you, the developer, and if you allow, I will ask you questions little by little).

I decided to post the status bar code from the old 64-bit) foobar 0.8.3 in an attached file. It is large and the syntax is different, which is probably why it did not work in the new version.

But I have a new problem, sorry.) When I add new files to the playing playlist using the context menu command "Enqueue in foobar2000" (I have the option to add to the end of the playlist enabled), the first of the added files to the playlist is automatically selected. And the playback order is broken(. The first added file becomes the next song in the playlist!
This was not the case in the old foobar2000. Even with the "playback follow the selected line" option enabled. Otherwise, in the old foobar2000 the first of the files added in this way was not highlighted.
The most interesting thing about the new foobar2000 is that if you add files to a playlist using the "drag and drop" function, the first of the added files is not highlighted - like in the old foobar!
Is it possible to remove the spontaneous selection of the first added file when adding files in this way? Does this problem relate to Colunm UI or to foobar2000 itself?

'Enqueue in foobar2000' is handled by foobar2000 itself, while for drag and drop the logic relating to inserting items in the playlist is handled by the UI. Regardless, when added items are selected, changing the focused item is the intended behaviour, so it is the drag and drop behaviour that has a bug here (it does change the focused item, just not to the right thing).

If you don't want that to affect which item is played next, you need to disable Playback follows cursor. You could use the playback queue to have more direct control over what is played next.

Thank you. I understand. So 'Enqueue in foobar2000' doesn't work correctly in foobar2000 since it breaks that queue? Do I understand correctly? It worked fine in the old foobar2000 0.8.3.
It is important for me to work with the playback queue, so turning off "Playback follows cursor" is not a solution for me(.

Can I ask another question? How can I highlight the background of the playing line with a different color? 
When it is not highlighted (unfocused).

I suggest starting a new thread for the Explorer 'Enqueue in foobar2000' questions. Seems there is still some confusion and it's not related to Columns UI.

Add something like this to the style string on the Globals tab on the Playlist view preferences page:

Code: [Select]
$if(%isplaying%,
$set_style(back,$rgb(255,0,0),$rgb(255,0,0),$rgb(255,0,0))
,)

The arguments for $set_style are described here: https://wiki.yuo.be/columns_ui:config:colour_string (note that the wiki hasn't been updated in a long time, so some information on other pages there is out of date)

Great! It works!

Yes, that would be great! However, I do not have the necessary terminology on this issue and my explanations may be misunderstood!
What to do?
This is a really important question for me! After 20 years of habit it is difficult to change this habit)
