Err.... Bug? I just re-installed my whole f2K (completely deleted the old installation), then added several plugins (including ColumnsUI) and imported my old CUI configuration. foo_uie_tabs works fine (I added history and database as tab), but when I close foo and start it again my previous configuration is gone (the tab-config)... Does anyone have an idea?

Thanks big time!

Hey I am really digging this, thanks a lot.

Am I missing something? I would like to be able to have more then one extension in each tab, is this possible? If not, could it be?

I get the same bug as well, with the panels config not saved on a restart f foobar. Gonna switch to the older version for now.

edit: just saw on the last page that it may have been fixed. Trying it now.

edit2: work like a charm.

Thanks for making such a useful plugin. 

Request:
Could you make it an option to center tab names?
[a href="index.php?act=findpost&pid=253792"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a]
You mean they're not already centered? Or would you like them to be left/right aligned? Unfortunately I have no control over that, so you're stuck with whichever way Windows decides to draw them.[a href="index.php?act=findpost&pid=253800"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a]
Nah, after a closer look, it appears they can't really make up their mind. Some seems to be left aligned, and some centered.

I use width=4 and height=3 to make it as small as possible, but when I increase width to e.g. 30, all looks close to centered.

But, this is not a major problem at all. I'll probably leave it as is, or maybe add some padding before the name if I feel really pedantic.

Ah, ok then.

That got me thinking.    Is it feasible that somehow foo_uie_tabs could be made so that it is possible to load more than one panel in a single tab? Then both foo_uie_trackinfo and foo_uie_albumart could be displayed in a single tab. Another example: I have an album list view that displays tracks by date and an album list view that displays tracks by decade. It would be cool if I could load both of them into a single tab rather than having a separate tab for each view.

Well, this can be done without uie_tabs' help. Someone just needs to follow the design concept of this plugin, and make a ui extension that doubles as an extension host. Then the "split" host extension could be added as a tab.

That would be pretty cool, since if uie_tabs was the only extension in the sidebar, it would be like having 4 separately configured sidebars on top of each other.

OK, be as dumb as me and you're done with... I just did the general mistake: Don't read the posts, just post! Thanks Sandman2012 for your kind hint - and thank you Phi for programming this great plugin

Thanks!

where can i rename a tab? (if this means renaming the caption, e.g. from "Database Explorer" to "DB Expl" to have a shorter string
[a href="index.php?act=findpost&pid=253784"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a]

Right click on a tab and select "Rename tab..."

Hi Phi,
I've tried to rename the tabs too but the "Rename Tab" item doesn't show in the list. Any ideas what I could try to solve this? I'm using the latest version (26kb).
Thanks for your great plug!!

Hi Xerion,

I really like your configuration. Would you care to share what skin, and the config settings that you are using?

Hi,
I'm using a windowblinds skin named "Doublet" to skin my windows. In foobar I'm using the columns UI formatting string [a href="http://foobar.nub4life.net/columns/pafiledb.php?action=file&id=40]"Fusion"[/url] of which I have edited the colors and some other things.  For the trackinfo panel I'm using a modified version of the string posted by Free in the foo_uie_trackinfo thread. Using the columns UI setting to show all toolbars, I have added panel stacks to the toolbar which I have given a minimum height so they'll display right. To actually have multiple panel stacks I have compiled 2 more panel stack DLL's with modified source so they have different GUID's. It's a bit of a hack but I don't have a lot of programming skill (yet anyway ).

You can load two instances of the pannel stack by holding [shift]!

i have two uie_tabs and i didn't have to recompile them. you can use modifier keys to force to 'add' new instance of extension, though for example playlist_find doesn't support that ...

edit: i was too slow (plus i didn't remember which key, hehe). btw donnie darko owns

I think, that option to add another panel instance should be available from menu. It  simply should be better exposed, as it is quite frequently used feature. Right now it's kind of hidden...

You can actually load multiple instances of a panel by either :
- holding the "Shift" key when selecting the panel to add it as a "primary" panel
- just selecting the panel from within a tabbed one

However not all panels behave equally. I have performed a quick test with results below :

Case 1 Some work well :
- Tabbed panels
- Playlist switcher
- Album list
- History

Case 2 Some allow only one instance (the former instance will disappear) :
- Track info
- Enqueue list

Case 3 Some will crash foobar :
- Album Art

Maybe the developpers could align themselves on Case 1, which is obviously the most polite behavior.

Ah I didn't know about the shift key, but still, I can't set different minimum heights using that method, while I can set up the properties seperatly with my hacked panel stacks

Hrmm... I have no idea. The only thing I can suggest is to start up foobar once with the plugin deleted, then download it again, etc.

As musicmusic mentioned in another thread, allowing multiple instances doesn't make sense for all ui extensions. Granted, having more than one track info instance would be useful, and will probably be implemented eventually.

As for foo_uie_albumart, my inside build already fixes the crash (I'll release it soon when I have time to change some other things in it). I think I'll be enabling multiple instances for the next version, actually. I feel embarrassed to be the only one in group number 3, so I'll try to make up for it by putting it directly in group number 1 with the next version .

Phi,

could you please consider to change the font settings from MS Sans Serif to Tahoma or better, the current default font for dialog window elements? The following screenshot taken from the first page should illustrate what I mean, just compare the font of the panel tabs with the font of the playlist tabs.

I was having the same problem as phew (no "Rename Tab" option), but Phi's suggestion did the trick.

Thanks!  I'm really diggin' this plug-in!

that's not right side (well, ehm ), but toolbar area. he used recompiled version of uie_tabs with different gui, so he could set different minimal heights for it to display correctly when used as toolbar ...
