I modifed the CD-Cover skin even further.

I just added some controls, cause I really wanted them.

The pic shows the play-button as mouse over.
they are usually all faded out so you can see the cover clearly.




Have fun, hope you like it!

I updated the foolbar skin if anyone is interested.  It now shows more information and still fits nicely in the Windows XP sized title bar area.  The text displayed is different based on the playback state, check out the screenshot.  An astute reader contacted me about some changes... I made a few, but he made an alternate version that will hopefully show up here soon.  Feel free to use this as a base or make adjustments as you see fit.  Have the appropriate amount of fun!

   <contents spacing="0" font="Verdana" size="8">
    <label position="right" color="ffffffff">%play_counter%</label>
   </contents>
  </layer>


The -18 in the size looks a little funky to me.  Try making that positive.

is it possible to make buttons for foo_rate in this pretty useful plugin?


If there is a menu entry for foo_rate, then yes.  Any menu command can be invoked by a foo_title button.

I'm considering giving a friend of mine a programming excercise - to create a program, that would take a properly layered PSD (or some other image format) file and slice it into several pngs along with the XML description of the skin. That would make it easier to create skins. This idea was inspired by Xion, which can load PSD directly.

Would you be interested in such a program ?

Hi everyone. First Post


I've been playing around with foobar for a while,but I had not registered..
I just found this component, I love it! So, I did this for myself, and thought I'd share it.

The two "foobar icons" on the left are for activating and shutting off foobar.




Cheers


for some reason the minimize button only brings up the window, not minimizing it
can you make one button for play/pause?
and can you also rearrange your icons so that it goes play/pause, stop, forward, backwards? thanks!

GIF-like animation is supported using a layer of type animation. See the documentation.

If a font is installed in the system (=Windows), it can be used.

Hi, this component is great, and there are some excellent looking skins in here, but I was wondering if anyone knew of one that has a stop after current button? Or I could try and make one, but can anyone tell me how to put one together, is there something I need to write .xml files, or will notepad do? Oh and is there a way to make a play/pause button that shows pause when something is playing, and play when it's paused or stopped? Maybe using that COM automation component??

Cheers.

Notepad is fine for XML. You can just take an existing skin and add or change an existing button - that's quite easy.

Changing the button at runtime is not currently supported, but it's rather easy to add this functionality to foo_title (it's in C# which is quite a friendly language).

Thanks, I had a look around, read the manual etc and I've made a skin, although it's not perfect. It's meant to be a kind of miniplayer/desktop widget thing. I think it suffers from it not updating on stop, so it looks pretty dodgy when you load it or sometimes when you stop playback (eg after playing an online stream). It has a play/pause button, a stop after current toggle and a progress bar/scroller for streams, which I managed to make using titleformating in the geometry parts. If anyone want to make it look more consistent I'm sure they can, I've included a play/pause button in the rar for people to use. It'll do for the moment, here it is:



I included the PSDs in case people want to edit those too. Oh and I took the foobar mask thing from one of the skins in this thread, (foostick) I hope that's OK!

Another thing, it uses cwb_hooks for some of the titleformating, so some people might need that.

Cheers.

Royale Noir ('Royale Noir.zip' attachment): based on the XP theme.
I plan to update this skin pretty soon, add better button functionality (its basically a re-skinned 'thin2').

Hi, I was checking this topic and noticed some problems with the placement of the foo_title plugin and I have a different on this. I've been using a program called AutoHotKey, with it you can do some simple programming and add lots of features to your system, being one of the main ones the ability to add hotkeys to your system with almost no restrictions. And so with this little app, I have one of the side buttons of my mouse to show/hide foo_title, so there's no problem which size the skin is or where it is placed.

This is the code I use for it:

Code: [Select]
1 DetectHiddenWindows, Off
2 GroupAdd, g_foo_title, ahk_class WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.33c0d9d
3
4 XButton2::
5 IfWinExist ahk_group g_foo_title
6     WinHide ahk_group g_foo_title
7 else
8     WinShow ahk_group g_foo_title
9 return


Explaining the above for those that aren't so keen on this kind of stuff:

- Line 1: this option has to be turned off so that this little trick can work, so it'll be able to "hide" the foo_title window from the system;
- Line 2: creates a "group" of windows called "g_foo_title", and adds "WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.33c0d9d" class to it (which is the name of the class of foo_title, this name can be found with a little app that comes with AutoHotKey);
- Line 4: This tells which key (or combination) will be used to activate the code below, in my case, XButton2 refers to the 2nd side button on the mouse, a combination like "#s" can be used to represent the WinKey+S combination or "^!s" which represents "Ctrl+Alt+S";
- Line 5: It reads like, "if a window, from the "g_foo_title" group exists then";
- Line 6: this line sends a "Hide" command to the found window, and so the foo_title will not be shown;
- Line 7, 8: if it doesn't exist (even if foobar is running with foo_title, when the "hide" command is set, the it will not be found because of the turned off option on line 1), show the window belonging to the "g_foo_title", and foo_title is shown;
- Line 9: this line must be included in the end of a procedure so that it stops, or else anything below would be read too.

And so with this running in background, and foo_title set to be "Always On Top", each time I press the side button on my mouse if foo_title is being shown, it is hidden and vice-versa ^^

The documentation of this app is really great and pretty extensive with lots of details so you can learn how to do almost anything in it easily =) hope it helps.

PS: If anyone is interested in this app and need some help making it work I'll gladly give a hand on what I can ^^

I use this code to make an image move to the right as the song plays:
Code: [Select]
    <layer name="bar" type="absolute-images">
        <geometry type="absolute">
            <size x="33" y="9" />
            <position x="$add(41, $mul(4, $div($mul(%playback_time_seconds%, 94), %length_seconds%)))" y="13" align="left" />
        </geometry>
        <contents>
            <image src="tracker3.png" />
        </contents>
    </layer>


To make the skin change size you need to use the full geometry. See the documentation and the white skin which changes size as the text changes it's size.
