foo_navigator
Since foobar2000 0.9 has been lacking a functional history component, I decided to take a try and make my own. By now it just provides commands to go back and forward and show the recently played tracks.
(Maybe I'll get to create a custom panel, but this would certainly take some time and for the time being I will only do some small bugfixes and additions)

For more information and downloads go to my page.

Some improvments:

1) Beside the option "Seconds to wait", amore flexable option would be "Precenge (%) to wait".

2) An option to an automatic creation of History playlist without to press "View history" in a submenu.

3) Maybe an option to mark in the DB the track history to interact with foo_autoplaylist.

Thanks, I will reguard for feutre releases.

No problems over here. Does anybody else get this error?

Not quite sure about number 3, what exactly do you mean? I think most of such things can be done with Playback Statistics.

Another improvments:
1) May you add an option to choise the adding order of the tracks to the playlist, last to newest or newest to last.

2) when I close (or remove in fb2k terminology) the history playlist - all past history dissapear. more over i can change the order or delete items from the playlist, can it possibole to make it untouchable by choise?

3) adding a new button/feature: Clear history.

4) What is the function of "History size:"? is it the size of the history you can get via the buttons press? it have no effect on the History playlist. so if i don't use the buttons i can reduce it to zero?

Thanx a lot, the other feature work very well, it just what whe need :-)

Great plugin, working perfectly so far (much better than foo_history, also - the option to control waiting time is great). I hope you continue to develop it. Kudos.

Nice plugin!

The only improvement i would love to see is a reversed playlist where the newest tracks are on the top.

A bigger request i must admit: Introducing a database-only tag (saved in cfg.file f.e.) %_play_stamp%. So you would even have a column for displaying the date & time when a song was played. That tag would have to be a multiple oneand could be used for other purposes too!

Thanks for the plugin!

EDIT: It would be logical to make the navigator playlist a locked one like the foo_history is!

Thank you very much for the plugin.

very cool plugin, thanks!

the only feature I would request would be for the 'foward' option to also act like the 'next' button when you reach the end of the history list. I like going back a few songs, then skipping ahead to random songs with a global shortcut key. Thanks!

Hi,

I finally developed a new version, including a panel and custom dropdown buttons. I also made some of the improvements you suggested. Information and download of the component can be found on the same page as the first version.

Bye,
yanni

PS: I also posted an update to the uploads forum for the ones unable to download from the page above.

Coooooool, thanks for the panel version.

One tiny, little thing: the edge style option is missing

Nice one. Thanks.

I see something about a toolbar in configuration but I can't seem to be able to activate it (the panel works as expected though), am I doing something wrong?

You need to open the Customise button dialog (for any button toolbar you'd like), add a new button, click Change and select the Buttons Command group.

Nice work! I would like the history not to be reset whenever I close foobar, though. The playlist remains, so it is functional, for me, but the panel would be nice if it held the info.

I just noticed this as well just now. I would also like to request this feature. Thanks!

Don't know if it only me but the back dropdown button just adds the same songs on the same row, like this:
Quote
5. artist - title
5. artist - title4. artist - title
5. artist - title4. artist - title3. artist - title
5. artist - title4. artist - title3. artist - title2. artist - title
5. artist - title4. artist - title3. artist - title2. artist - title1. artist - title


foo_navigator.dll v0.5 [03 November 2006] - Navigator

My formatting is:
Code: [Select]
$num(%_history_number%,$len(%_history_number%)). %artist% - %title%

I had a quick look and what confused me was whenever i started playback from the panel foo switched to the origin playlist. Navigator seems to remember the source playlist. The problem is: If a track inside the navigator panel doesn't belong to an playlist anymore no playback is possible anymore even if the track belongs to the history plugin. My suggestion: Let a doubleclick apply the "play" command from foo_utils.

Also one bug: Sometimes a playing track isn't send to the history panel/playlist. I will see if i can reproduce that.

And sure! The History should be kept!

On the other side some people like the behavior that the source of the tracks is remembered. So why not an option like "Play history item in its playlist":  If it is not checked a doubleclick always applies the "play" command and if it is checked the "play" command is is only then applied then the track doesn't belong to a playlist anymore.

Another feature request: Now in the panel version it would be useful to have a variable %_history_timestamp% (yyyy.mm.dd hh:mm:ss) which displays when the track was played.

Thanks for your work so far!

There's now an option to remember the history across sessions.

@Andreasvb: That's very strange. I can't imagine what may be causing this behaviour. Are the forward button and the panel working fine? Are you using the latest versions of foobar2k and ColumnsUI.
Does anybody else experience this bug?

@q-stankovic: Unfortunately I don't know how foo_utils works; as far as I can see, there's no function in the SDK to play a track that's not inside a playlist. If anyone knows better, I may have a try.
Regarding the timestamp: Maybe this will be implemented in a future release, for the time being you may use foo_playcount as a replacement.
