Playlist Name Enhanced
Playlist Name Enhanced v1.2 (foo_playlist_name_enhanced)

Appends automatically playlist info ("items / length") to all playlist names.

Each time a playlist is modified, it checks if the playlist name matches "<name> [<info>]".
If it does, it replaces the <info> part with the new info.
If it doesn't, it appends " [<info>]".

NOTE: it only checks for left and right bracket, so be careful if you have "[<something_other_than_info>]" at the end...

v1.2
- "Edit -> Playlist Name Enhanced" menu item.

thanks, Wizard!

if you plan to make it more complex, I'd have two feature requests:

- exclude empty lists (currently it displays "[0:00]")

- exclude selected playlists (in my case "history" and "queue" which are used by the respective plugins)

I thought this functionality was already offered in Colum UI playlist switcher panel, using  %size% and %length% in the playlist title.

Not available for tabs however.

Great plugin.  It would also be very helpful if the plugin could also display total number of tracks in the playlist in addition to the playlist length.

Well thank you, although I have no use for the plugin, this made me aware of the fact that you can use %length% in the playlist switcher panel

v1.1 released, see first post.

@xxiii: I need to make a preferences page for an exclude list, but since I use Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition which doesn't have resource dialog editor, I can't do it right now, only when I get a copy of Visual Studio 2005...

I really like the plugin, but there is one annoying problem.  For some odd reason, after the plugin adds the information in brackets it makes all the resulting tabs uniformly larger than they need to be with extra spaces before the playlist name and after the bracketed information.  I cannot make these tabs resize to a size as large as they need to be to hold all of the information which normally occurs whenever you create a playlist tab which is ordinarily only as large as it needs to be to display the text of the name of the playlist.

my question: is something like this available for foobar 0.83?

the way the queue list works now in v1.1 (when empty it's just the name and when you queue tracks it updates with the infos) is pretty cool and I would not want to exclude it anymore.

I really don't know why this happens to you. What OS are you using? Does anyone else experience such a problem? Can you remove all plugins and use only mine to see if it happens again?

I think I figured out why it happens, but I have no solution.  I have a total of 6 playlist tabs which 5 of 6 can be fit on one line with the extra information added by your plugin so I have multiline tabs checked in playlist switcher settings.  As such, it appears that playlist switcher expands all the tabs to fill two complete lines making the tabs look weird with lots of extra spaces in the begining and end of the tab.  Not sure how to solve.

OK, I see... Maybe you should contact the author of playlist switcher?

@Generalverdacht: I've used functions that are not available for v0.8.3, sorry.

I have no reason to believe it won't. My plugin just renames the playlist, so it should show up in Columns UI.

how do you guys add the length and filecount infos in your playlist switcher only? seen this before... and dont want to make my playlist tabs that ugly with this plugin...

some of you told to simply add %length% to the playlistname, but this doesnt work at all....

You checked the box just over it yes? "Use titleformatting for playlist title in panel"
If you did that, having something like %title% '['%length%']' does work.

Would there be any way to pass this info (playlist length) to another program using a command line parameter? I use Xlobby as my frontend on my HTPC and foo_burninate as a handy way to burn playlists without leaving the frontend, by I need a way to calculate and display playlist length. Thansk in advance...

When I started making this plugin, I wanted to make just a custom titleformatting tag (like %playlist_length% or something...) that could just be updated when playlists were switched and that anyone could use that, but I couldn't find any help on this. If anyone knows of a way (or if it's even possible), please let me know

Check out XN.


Thanks, but can I visually design the preferences page with this one or is it just an editor for .rc files?

And btw, how can I create a unique GUID?
