Light color-schemes should be declared as non-dark. Dark ones should be declared as dark. If a color-scheme is neither dark nor light, then choose whatever looks best.

Your scheme clearly is a light-scheme. About the special-color: maybe i'm stating the obvious but if you choose yellow foreground on a bright-orange background, then its supposed to look unreadable. That would as well be the case with no color-calculations at all.

Hey lyx, very nice config ya made up, thanks for the work you've put into it.
I've found one (very small) bug, in the format display where it displays MP3, if there is no lame version, there is a space left over.
Heres the fixed code: MP3,MP3[' ('%__lame_version%')'],

Oh and heres another bug (not quite so small this time).
Setting enable folders to 1 doesnt seem to have any affect. I had to move the enable_folders=$get(enable_folders) line to global track specific in export to get it to work properly...

Thanks, will be fixed in next version along with the missing space between bitrate and VBR-files.

This is very weird. It should not make a difference, because the track-specific line is just a comment - it doesn't do anything and it shouldn't make a difference where its exported. The seperation of trackspecific and nontrackspecific is purely for cosmetical reasons, so that when ui columns gets global nontrackspecific vars that its easy for me to make use of it.
I will investigate why this happens when i've got some time, but honestly, this is just weird and i dont have the slightest clue yet.

edit: found a quick-fix for it - i dunno why it was necessary to put a seperator-char before the first exported var, but it works*shrugs*

Hi Lyx.

Enjoying your Navigator.

I noticed a little glitch: using CLASSIC theme, when you select the currently playing song artist and title info are hardly visible (quality is fine, though).

Can you fix it?

Thanks.

I know about it, but its not that easy to fix while keeping the selected tracks looking obvious in light AND dark color-schemes. It's on my to-do list, but i don't know if a solution to this will be in the next release.

edit: bah, i dont even know my own code anymore after the recent optimizations. Easier than i thought. Fixed in next version.

I dont know if this has been posted, but the play date column doesnt seem to work\display anything since v1.02.

Support for play_date and play_time has been dropped at 1.1.0. Only last_played is supported now(and not just displayed, i'm also doing some nifty calculations with it - see the screenshot on the formatting site for an example)

Hey lyx could you explain to me what the $char(6) in your code, and the $replace functions its used in, actually do?

Its a workaround to translate various color-formats from one syntax into another. Overally, there are 4 different color-formats in fb2k - the standard unselected-only version and the standard unselected+selected..... multiplied by 2 by ui_columns color-translations between the global vars and columns. Since fb2k and ui_columns do not automatically translate from one format into another, i'm doing it manually.

Next version will probably only contain minor bugfixes (like the small glitches mentioned in the recent days). It will probably stay for some weeks like this, because 1.1.0 burned me out and i need a break - besides, i'm currently sick and have some fever.

Hi Lyx,
Could you make the replaygain info in album mode optional like the PERFORMER, CONDUCTOR, PUBLISHER, ENCODEDBY tags?
And maybe add support for COUNTRY ? Or maybe let the user deceide what special metatags he wants to have?

I do plan to make it configurable whats shown in the metadata matrix(so that you can tailor it to your needs), but it probably won't be in the next version - which will only fix minor bugs.
Currently i'm not planning to support COUNTRY.

I meant the A l b u m - M o d e column, not the Metadata-Matrix.

Ah, now i understand what you meant. I'll make it so that when an album does not contain replaygain-tags then the albummode-column will no longer show "no replaygain info" but instead use the space for other info.

edit: does someone have an idea how to replace the ugly arrow at the now-playing track with something more nice looking? I cannot come up with something better which also looks neutral in various color-schemes, so i'd be grateful for proposals how to improve it.

I've replaced the arrow with this animation

>
>>
>>>
>>>>

Here is the code from the pos. column:
Code: [Select]
$if($or(%_isplaying%,%_ispaused%),
%_standard_color_high%$select($mod(%_time_elapsed_seconds%,6),>      ,>>    ,>>>  ,>>>>,$pad_right(%_playlist_number%,4))
,
$if($strcmp(%_days_since_play%,0),%_standard_color_low%▷)
$char(9)%_standard_color_low%$pad_right(%_playlist_number%,4)
)


Oh BTW, I think Navigator is really cool... Thanks!
Anish

Edit: Added rest of Pos. code for clarity

IMO it's not so ugly. Personally I don't think this is such a problem... I would concentrate on the bugs already reported (lack of space on the VBR string for instance) but that's just me.

I noticed in your code that you use for some text (monkey's audio, for instance) the ` character (as in monkey`s audio) in the album-mode code. I tried to change that for the ' character but apparently this messes up the entire code and nothing is visible anymore (except a bunch of ????? characters). Reverting to the older ` character does not restore the views and you have to import the configuration all over again.

Do you know if this is a constraint of columns_ui itself? I noticed that it also happens with other consigurations as well.

Anyway, I love your work and am looking forward for the next release.

Those minor bugs are already fixed and will appear in the next version (probably tomorrow).

Thats because ' is used in tagz for quotation-purposes. To display a ' you need to "escape" it with a second single quotation-mark - like this: monkey''s audio.

To avoid the need to escape(lazyness), bugsearching when forgetting to escape it(lazyness) and making the code more clear and faster to read(clean code) i use ` instead of '' to avoid the issue completely. But if its important to you, then you can just replace the `s with ''s.

Minor update - changelog is as usual in the first post. Unless you suffer from one of the mentioned bugs there isn't really a need to update.

Backup your custom color-schemes before upgrading.

Maybe - depends on how much additional code it needs to make it configurable - and if there are other people who as well would like to disable it.

the sorting of rating and playcount should be made with something like $sub(5,%rating%) because the order would then conform to the arrow direction on the top of the column.

[a href="index.php?act=findpost&pid=283059"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a]

Those columns sort by playcount, rating, last_played and path_raw

I dont know how to implement your suggestion with a reasonable amount of code while still correctly sorting by last_played. I cannot use days_since_last_play, because for that to work the global string would need to be used while sorting - and this would slow down sorting too much.

If someone can tell me how to do it at acceptable speed, then i will change it in navigator.
