Like the others, the icons display correctly in XP for me too . Thanks .

This looks much better now that the vertical bar is removed from the icon/playlist area, .

Keep up the good work

Thanks for the confirmation.
BTW, the toolbar is not resizable at the moment, I will implement resizing in a future version.

Works fine here too. And there's no unused space anymore, thanks

I spoke too fast

I am currently working on the resizing (which is not supported at the moment, window is fixed size only). Should be included in the next version. If in the short term you want to get rid of the little annoyance above, just launch foobar once without the plugin ... reinstall it and it should be ok.

I haven't tried this plugin yet since it's not ported to 0.9 but I wounder. Is there an option to change the font in the search box?

Does anyone else get a weird text effect where it seems each letter makes the previous one darker?



Highlighting and typing over text also has weird effects for me.

Typing, highlighting a portion, and typing again acts as normal for me. I tried a bunch of variations of typing, but didn't get that effect >_>.

The only program I have ever had that happen in (before I got a tool I will meantion in a second) in was Msn Plus's custom status's. It stil happens there for some reason. It leaves yellow or pink trails behind text.

This used to happen in notepad, wordpad, etc etc for me all the time before I got the cleartype program from Microsoft. You could always try that and give it a go  . I hope you can get this fixed; that hurts the eyes .

I do have ClearType on and have the powertoy too.  If I disable ClearType the text doesn't get darker after each letter, but the weird highlighting still happens.

It's difficult to put into words, but it seems there is something weird going on with the text field updates.  If I highlight something in the field and press delete, the highlighted text stays visible and remains so even if I type over it.  If I move away from the search box, the text goes back to normal.

I haven't experienced this in any other programs and playlist find works fine for me.

Lol... i made this screenshot today:



because I was gonna ask if something like this existed, or if I could begin developing something like it...

then it turns out u beat me to it!

I like your search bar.. it's basically the same idea I was gonna implement, using the database search functions.

However, I still need these key features:

I would really like it if u saved the playlist (because I use the Default playlist as my only playlist, just one simple scrolling library) and then displayed the search results automatically as they are found (a.k.a. apple spotlight, or ajax search), and when I click on the search bar again, it should restore my previous playlist.

For example, when I do a Ctrl + F and bring up the existing playlist search, it has that automatic "spotlight" like searching, but it shows the results in a separate window.

would this be too hard to implement? That is what I originally imagined since I like the simplest interface possible.

thanx!

EDIT:

I just realized how to implement this with the tools u already have. I'll leave my default playist name "Default" and have the search output to a different playlist.

Then, when I am done with that window, when I click somewhere other than the playlist (like the search bar) the "Search" playlist is deleted.

So With my basic setup, the Default playlist is put into the background, and the Search in the foreground. When the search is done, it's playlist is deleted and the Default list comes back to the foreground..

Possibility? I guess u would have to implement a "close the search playist" after done.

Or you can enable playlist tabs and enable tabs autohide. When searching it brings a new tab to the foreground. When you're done with that you can just right click and close the tab. Brings you back to default playlist.

That's how I do it

Version 1.2 is out with some new features (custom bitmaps, playlist_gen syntax). As usual check the first post for downloading.
As this is probably the last version before I port to 0.9 , please provide any comment/feedback/bug report so that the version is made as stable as possible. Thanks.

Undock and redock and it should disappear. The problem happens when you change icons while the toolbar is docked IIRC.  Fix will be part of the next version.

The only problem I have had recently is this:

With the new update, my favourite icon (the blue cross) was gone. So I reverted to the magnifying glass (*shudders*). I decided to make my own icon. I created a 32x32 bitmap in photoshop, and saved it as a 32 bit image. It was a square with an S on it .

Anyway, I go into the prefrences, search for the image, and load it up. All was fine. I went to the file location, and cut and pasted it into my foobar directory. Went back into foobar, and the icon was a magnifying glass again. So I searched and found the bitmap I created, but I got this error:

Code: [Select]
ERROR (foo_uie_quicksearch) : Number of images in bitmap must be even


I get that with every image I try to load now  . Other than that, things are working great... back to the magnifying glass for now  lol

EDIT:

Gah, leaving foobar and coming back in gives me this error:

Code: [Select]
ERROR (foo_uie_quicksearch) : Image draw failed
ERROR (foo_uie_quicksearch) : dRAW FAILED


Now I can't even use this  .
