Is it possible to show date tag next to album name in CUI Album filter panel? I want to see someting like "Yellow Submarine (1969)" in album filter panel, but I don't know how to do it. I have not any scripting or programming experience.

Works perfectly. Thanks.

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


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.


Problem is they all hide the window, I just need to hide the taskbar entry. musicmusic pls code it in

So it's OK if it's in the system tray ONLY?  This feature is already available but maybe I'm using the definition of "taskbar" differently.

No correct definition afaik there is no way to have the window maximized and only in the tray or hidden.

Ahh...so that's what you wanted.  I was assuming you were referring to it being minimized and not in the taskbar.

Aloha, here we go:

- old topic: does anybody have an idea why foobar gets 'locked' when copying files per drag&drop (+ctrl) out of CUI-Playlistview (copying-msgbox is modal)? Mentioned once, maybe musicmusic remembers. Due to CUI or foobar in general?
- is it possible to have an autoplaylist with CUI (album-list-panel)? I use http://www.skipyrich.com/wiki/Foobar2000:Playlist_Bind. ATM (new version available BTW) to bind a path to a playlist, works but I want to change to autoplaylist-feature

This is not a CUI matter.
I personally got rid of foo_playlist_bind since the folder watching has been introduced in media library. Why have a component to do something already achievable with FB2K features?
You can set as search query:

%path% HAS <insert your desired path>

Obvoiusly the desired path has to be included in media library.

Thx for the hint, that did the trick! Haven't used the std-search since years as I am using the Quick-Search-Toolbar 
As it does, foo_playlist_bind can be dropped.

Hi all,

I apologise if this has been asked before; I've tried searching over several threads and not found anything. Is there a way to change the grey background colour, where the toolbar and footer are, and the colour behind all of the components within the panel?

?!? you mean you windows classic look?

if yes Control Panel>Display>Appearance
in your windows properties

not the foobar properties, it has nothing to do with columns ui

hmm maybe I posted this in the wrong thread then . I assumed columns ui would be able to control the background colour of the components within its container, separately from the windows/Foobar one (the menu/footer in this case I guess).

I don't want to adjust the Windows appearance, because I'm happy with that grey for everything else.

well then you've to use another splitter like Panel Stacker Splitter

buts it's much harder to configure

This is kind of a big request, but here it is: the ability to link the different fields in the list to different filters -- so when you put the mouse over the album name in the "Album" column, it would underline, and when you click it would go to the filter view of just that album. Same with artist, maybe year/genre/etc?

Can support for the global variables be extended to the Item Details panel?

I'm experiencing 3-5 second UI freezes in "updating files" dialog whenever I update tracks' metadata with Filter and Album list panels present in the layout. When only one panel is present, freeze is shorter, but definitely present, and it's longer with Album list than with Filter. The freeze length is the same no matter what metadata is updated, even when it's a replaygain scan.
In contrast, a Default UI layout with Album list and Facets updates almost instantly, without any perceptible blocking of the UI.
I'm using 0.9.6.4 beta 2 now with Windows 7 build 7048, but I'm almost sure it was there in XP with an older version of fb2k, only it wasn't that obvious with a slower HDD.

Edit: spelling.

Filter Panel should update fairly quickly though it will depend on the configuration. (do keep configuration differences in mind when comparing with other components).

Can you tell me how long the initialisation time (from the console) at startup is for both? And how many tracks are in your media library? It would be nice to know what CPU also.

(I assume you did check with neither panel in your layout?)

Filter gives shorter delay time than Album list, that's right.
It's not just the update speed. The difference feels like you're updating panels in the same thread that repaints UI, whereas DUI components do it in a separate one. And much quicker, too. The configurations are as close as they can be - "directory structure" for Album lists and Genre/Album Artist;Artist/Album for Filter with the direct analog of three predefined columns in Facets, although it doesn't seem to matter much.

Yep, no freeze at all without them.

Don't know if its mentioned before (didn't found the time to search 208 pages  ).
There seems to be an issue with "Use active item frame" on the "Colours" tab in "Colours and fonts"..
I can choose it for most panels but it only takes effect after typing a key on the keyboard.

hi, tedgo
here is page with couple of your posts and the problem you mentioned (and i mentioned it two times at least, because i can't understand musicmusic's reply - it has something to do with windows's behavior  )
i hope i get you right

You got me right, but i too can't understand musicmnusic's reply...
I see the point that windows explorers behaviour is the same, though.
I think the active item frame is not what i expected then. I thought the active item frame is always for the active item, not only when chosen with a key...

I'd like to request a small feature that I miss greatly, will finally switch to CUI from DUI if it's added. (Currently using DUI + Facets with folder structure, but seems can do same with CUI Filters. The only reason I want to switch it to have 2 playlists, and since ELplaylist allows that now, I want to switch to CUI.  )

All I want is to add an option to specify playlist name for "Auto-send selection to playlist" under CUI => Filters => Behaviour so I could send selection in filters to specific playlist. I'd be very grateful. That would allow me to have 2 playlists with facets-like functionality.

Thanks.

(P.S. Maybe also adding playlist names for double click and middle click actions along the way?)

Hi Musicmusic,

in NG playlist I display one information over 2 columns, if a track is playing. A picture says more than 1000 words:


As you can see, there's some ugly space between "9:55 /" and the "10:51". There is no whitespace characters between the two strings in the CUI code. CUI does always apply some padding AFAICS. I remember it was possible to be "gapless" here, but possibly it was in the old columns playlist.

Am I missing something obvious here? I'd rather like to have things completely alligned to the border and add space with a padding option...

And maybe one day you could make the autosend playlist user configurable, as maqzek asked in the prior posting...
