Just a quick question related to making skins.

How do I make text bold?

In that case, I suggest italics as well

Just made my first skin which was really easy, and I'll maybe do more in the future. Thanks for this sweet pluging!

Looking forward to a the next version!!!

Cheers,

Nova

Congratulations, it works now, I started in another directory before, changing the directory made it working.

Yeah, this worked for me.  Thanks for finding that.  Ok, I have 3 feature requests before I start using this.  One was already raised with remember the position of foo_title.  Second, how about always on top configuration.  And third, can I either click or double-click on foo_title to raise my playlist.  Thanks for the great plugin.  I almost have a minibar!

Remembering position will be in the next release which will be soon released 

What do you mean by always on top configuration ? Is what we discussed about in http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....46595&st=0# ?

Just create a button with action set to Activate.

always on top is a setting where say i minimize foobar and open up another window.  if foo_title was in the middle of the screen, and i open up another program, i would still be able to see foo_title.  it's kind of a "i can always see foo_title" thing.

oh and duh, i didn't think of that.

Well it should work like this (that foo_title is always on top). It sometimes happens to me that foo_title goes into the background but once I activate it, it stays on the top.

So you say it doesn't work on your computer ?

I think it could be good, that if you have a skin with no buttons, that you could then double click the foo_title bar and foobar would maximize.. Is that possible?

Well it is possible but I don't think it's a good way of doing it from the design point of view.

Maybe to have special events like click on the window, right click, double click  and configurable by the user...

Just wanted to say thanks! I'm loving this plugin. I had been wanting something like this to complement my minimal setup I have for Litestep, and this is indeed perfect. =)

i drag it to the top of my screen, and it stays on top, but then i open up another program, such as my browser and for some reason it disappears.  it goes under my start bar.

and this is a really good idea, better than our simple one.

You have the start bar on the top of the screen ? I'm asking just to be sure that foo_title doesn't jump to the bottom of your screen:)

is there going to be support for non English folder names?  It doesn't seem to display the covers when my folder names aren't in English

huh?  yeah, my start bar is at the top of my screen, and foo_title um i forget the word, but like when i drag it to the top, it snaps there, but it disappears when i open up another program and i can't get it back because i think it hides under the start bar.

Nice one! 
Bug: It shows up as a Form1 windows with default .net icon when I switch apps with Alt+Tab.

I confirm this one.

And yeah, what you suggested Quiark with the actions is much better.

Well I don't consider that a bug.. I'll write foo_title there, ok, but someone will have to come with an icon as I'm unable to draw one myself:)

As for not working always on top... I'll have to find out how to solve it, setting Form.AlwaysOnTop = true seems not to be enough..

I still don't like it though. What if I want to add support for more windows in the future (though I'm not completely sure about that  ? I'll make it skin specific probably...

Just tried making my own skin.

Text rendering is really weird - no cleartype and it doesn't seem to support "HaxrCorp 4088 Caps" as a font, :(
hi

Yes, ClearType is turned off, because of a bug in GDI+ (probably). It causes the text to have ugly black outline (on a transparent black skin). I'm using a simple matrix antialiasing, but it doesn't work on some computers

I don't have that font.. try to write it without 'Caps' or so..

But there is no need in this app icon at all, it just clutters Alt+Tab list. Couldn't you just never show this window in Alt+Tab?

I was wondering if theres any way to add a basic foobar visualization object onto the the skin. I have made a rather spiffy skin (looks like an OLED display...well, supposed to at least  ) ) and i think that would really look good on it. The skin isnt done yet (just a few buttons to add) so i'll post it when im done with it. But here's a preview:

You could I suppose, make an animation following the example in the documentation, but would be very visualizing
