BTW I recommend a reset button to return to the default settings and code.
Doesn't the Reset page button (on my plugin's preferences page) do exactly what you want? It works here...

Hm,

I am using Columns UI and the dropdown option isn't available on either method ...i'm not sure why.

Here's a screenshot of right clicking.



Any ideas?

moderation: please refrain from inlining images larger than roughly 800x600 and 80KB. please use thumbnails and/or links for large pictures instead.

Okay, I fixed it

I had the pre-beta version of Columns UI, it now works with the newest columns ui plugin.

Thanks for having a look.

Cheers!

My apologies~ I won't do it again.

You're probably right.

Another recommendation: This plugin seems to be the only way to display the currently used playlist. I use it on my notebook with big fonts (36 pt). Would you please allow to change the background color? (I generally use dark backgrounds).

b) Would you implement a way to center text?

I've added this to my to-do list, though I don't know how hard it would be to implement... (so it can take some time)

[EDIT]Please re-download this version: 1). Fixed problem with removing playlist. 2). Auto-switch to newly created playlist.[/EDIT]

Hi mixcherry

Very nice plugin, thanks

Couple of requests if you don't mind.

1. when creating a new playlist from context menu, focus the new playlist.

2. drag and drop support, create a new playlist and do the whole compare files for identical string thing to

generate playlist name, like with playlist switcher/playlist tabs.

Also with latest build (0.5.5), removing playlists from context menu doesn't work.

Thanks again

I love this plugin, the only thing I'm missing is the ability to display the length of the playlist.

I've just uploaded new version (0.5.5.1) which supports %length% field

Many thanks, mixcherry, esp. for the %length% field. Centering and background is no more important for me, I like the style I chose now.

I use it only for showing which Playlist is active...

Hello mixcherry,


Thank you very much for this plugin!


I just have one suggestion for you:

Could you make a button in the preferences which allows us to use the active (showing) playlist as the source for the next song to play?
As it is now, after I switch playlists, the next song being played always comes from the "playing" playlist.
I would like it so that the next song after playlist switching comes from the active playlist...


Or can this already be done? I didn't find any way to achieve this yet...


Whatever, great plugin!

Have you tried "Playback -> Playback follows cursor" from the main menu?

No, didn't try that yet...

But anyway, I am almost always in "Shuffle-Mode", so that is not exactly what I want.

I'd like foobar to autmatically switch to the active playlist and select one song randomly...

Unfortunately, I don't think that this feature would be suitable for my plugin, which is designed for displaying some data and is not related to playback/playback order/shuffle in any kind.

I think that this should be rather some kind of 'internal' option, not maintained by any plugin, but by core. So you should nag main foobar2000 developers instead

my screenshot with foo_fullscreen, foo_notaskbar, foo_ui_columns and foo_uie_playlists_dropdown
F : fullscreen/normal
P : play/pause
S : stop
when doubleclick the statusbar : toggle menubar

I've made fb2k a system service running in no other process but svchost.exe. no alt+tab Icon showing, no trayicon showing, no taskbar showing, and the only way to evoke fb2k is to press a certain key on my programmable keyboard.

That's pretty cool to me. Any comments, please let me know.

Also is it possible to remove the outer frame like most other components, ie so grey, sunken and none..
hopefully this is not too hard too implement

Ahem - this is just a dropdown-menu plugin! Don't make the preferences look like Columns UI.
I am arrogant and I can afford it because I deliver.

I take everything back!

The solution by gfngfgf actually works exactly like I wanted!

No need for anything from my side, I'm happy now!

I like this plugin, but it'll be better if it displays Active as an A, Ready-only as an L(for Locked), and playing as a P.

You can change it using formatting strings (on my plugin's preferences page). For example, if you'd like to change the "playing" and "active" indicators, you have to change this line:
Code: [Select]
$if(%is_active%,' (active'$if(%is_playing%,', playing')')',$if(%is_playing%,' (playing)'))
into something like this:
Code: [Select]
$if(%is_active%,' (A'$if(%is_playing%,', P')')',$if(%is_playing%,' (P)'))


As for name of locks, you have to change this line:
Code: [Select]
$tab(3)[ '('%playlist_lock%')']$tab(2)
into:
Code: [Select]
$tab(3)[ '('$abbr(%playlist_lock%)')']$tab(2)
which simply gives you abbreviation of the name of the lock. If you'd like to display only the letter L whenever the playlist is locked, you can use this code:
Code: [Select]
$if(%playlist_lock%,L)


You can do *anything* with the format of displayed data. That's what 'formatting strings' are for  Search the forums for formatting strings, title formatting, etc. Look at the file "titleformat_help.html" in your foobar2000 folder.

hi mixcherry, this plugin is GREAT ...I have many playlists and it just makes changing between them so much easier (especially since panel stack hasn't been ported for 0.9.1)

Fantastic work!

I too was looking for a way to display the active playlist and this fits the bill nicely.

would it be possible to display the total filesize of the playlist?  I can't seem to find a tag that does this.

thanks.
