That's rad.

I don't think i'll use it because i like to be able to see all the play lists at once, but i like what i can see in the picture. The different icons especially are really awesome (even if you can't configure them yet), i wish the regular play-list switcher had that.


Some CC: Just by looking at your screen shot (as in, without actually using it), it looks like you might have an issue with the vertical alignment. Like either the icon or the text isn't centred exactly. :shrug:

I haven't tried it out yet, but this is a really great idea.  I look forward to using it a lot

I took the icons from foosion's Playlist Switcher plugin (on his approval, of course).

Yup, it might look like that, because font is too small (exactly, 1 pixel too small ). Icons and text are both verically centered.

I like the idea of this component alot!

However, one thing which i like about playlist-tabs is how you can manipulate playlists via rightclicking, middleclicking, doubleclicking, etc. - I miss that functionality with this component.

edit: the degree of configurability however seems overkill to me
I am arrogant and I can afford it because I deliver.

Oh? I didn't know he'd made such a plug-in, and i can't seem to find it on his page. Could you link me?

edit: Never mind, i found it. Playlist Manager. :p

Yes, I miss that too  I'll try to add these functions as soon as possible.

nice... whenever I hear about a new plugin I feel such a thrill
and this one I really like...
I'm wonedring... is there some custom sorting available? 'cause I want the drop-down menu to be sorted by name of playlist not by their order on playlist tabs

oi, mixcherry, thanks a lot! i was hoping for just a simple dropdown box ... and you came out of the blue with something much more than that!

ok one small thing
how do you guys get that playback queue?
I have never seen it before is it a seperate component or am i just missing something very obvious

*****
ok had a play around
found that if i make a playlist
then go Playback - Playback Queue Viewer, I can select a playlist for this to be used for.

Now I just need to work out how to queue files in to the pl

*****
there we have it right click on the files you want added then add to playback queue et voila
nice figuring things out for yourself
*****
ok it seems there is a limit to the playback queue of 64 tracks is this correct?

Where do you get the Playback Queue Viewer?  It's not listed in my Playback menu.

I'll add this to my to-do list... (it isn't possible right now, but maybe it's as simple as adding 2 lines of code  we'll see)

I never thought it could take me a (whole) month or so to make this plugin

I'm wonedring... is there some custom sorting available? 'cause I want the drop-down menu to be sorted by name of playlist not by their order on playlist tabs
Thanks for that very interesting idea! I'm working on it now - I've implemented sorting the list by custom 'field' (for example %title% or %playlist_lock%), so you can expect this option in the very next version  I only have to tidy my code a little bit...

oi, mixcherry, thanks a lot! i was hoping for just a simple dropdown box ... and you came out of the blue with something much more than that!
Thanks! This is not my last word!!

Hi there,

how do you activate it?  I am keen to use this plugin but I can't see how to turn on the dropdown list.  I have the plugins from the stable package off foosion's site and am using Columns ui on foobar 0.91.

Thanks

As I already menioned in my previous post, I've already implemented sorting functionality. Just wait for new version to be released (in a day or two)

All you need is the latest Columns UI plugin (remember to activate it here: Preferences -> Display -> User interface module /reset/). Then, you can simply add my component to your toolbar (right-mouse-button on toolbar and Toolbars -> Playlists Dropdown) or add it as a panel - using Columns' Layout page (Preferences -> Display -> Columns UI -> Layout).

<snipped, has been answered before>

BTW I recommend a reset button to return to the default settings and code.
