Wow, I waited this so long! =) Thanks! Trying to migrate from foo_scheduler for 0.8..

Will there be any significant interface modifications? Most of all I miss quick access to events via Components -> Scheduler and current inability to use once-defined action to multiple events (and lack of choosing exact track of playlist to play )..

And, there' s the first founded bug  :

Yes, thank you

I only miss a timer instead of using exact time.

Good work!

Nice work, i had a bulky freeware program that woke from standby but now i can rely on this thanks a lot man.

Would be fantastic if you could intergrate a shutdown timer into it aswell, but I do understand that this is in it's early stages.

A "resume playback" or "unpause" option would be nice. Currently, the "Start playback" option restarts to the beginning of the file if it is paused.

Other than that, this is a nice plugin.

It is very good if "Exit foobar" action will be added.
By example, when Foobar reach the end of playlist - it must close, but not system shutdown as made in action "Shutdown".

I think the long wait for scheduler was worthy. And knowing the development progress^quality of foo_alarm, this will also be a fantastic plugin! Keep up the good work!

When it's enabled, like in your screenshot, you just rightclick somewhere on the white =)

you can see this: "use context menu to customise the task tree".
context menu mean "right click"

Great plugin.  When I first saw it I was ambivalent about the design--and I still can't tell whether its cleanliness is a great advantage or a disadvantage  It's most likely because I've been using this Winamp plugin for the past three plus years until a few months ago I started using foo_alarm.  So, my reluctance is meaningless--in fact, it took me quite some time to get me used to foobar and now I look at Winamp and wonder how I used it.

Request: I would second the request for a "timer".  While you can do it by setting a one time schedule for a certain time that is not preferable.  What I think would be ideal is a third option, the timer, added to date/time event and player event.  It would be a one time event of X minutes and it would start counting down whenever you enabled it.  So, whenever I want my music on before I go to bed I just click the check box and it goes on for 60 minutes.  Then, that same event will be ready for me to click for tomorrow night (unless I chose the remove after done option).

The ability to check the same event night after night and have it count down is what makes it useful since if it was a one time 60 minute event you could very well set a one time alarm.  But being able to check the box and get the same 60 minutes would be very useful (to me).

Two less important issues:  When you add new events should the be checked by default (I almost didn't check it)?  and, would anyone else find it useful to be able to add a label to each event?  Such as "class alarm", "shutdown for the weekend" or whatever.  It could be right aligned or whatnot. and I think it might provide an easier way to navigate many events rather than reading the times.

And, there' s the first founded bug  :
See "Delay" action. It pauses action list for a certain amount of time.

Well, you still need to enter an exact time for an action to start, don't you?

It should be like gren said, enable it and it starts ticking

And now about the timer: IT'S ALREADY IMPLEMENTED!!!  See "Delay" action. It pauses action list for a certain amount of time.


But... that's only under a player event or a date/time event.  What I think is useful is delay from right now.  Did what I was saying make sense?  Having a timer of 60 minutes with events under it and whenever you checked the box it would start the timer going?  While I see that it's possible to do timer actions now... you first have to create a date/time that goes off right away to enact the delay which will lead to whatever other actions you schedule.  It assumes that a timer must be started at a certain time event instead of starting a timer 'now'. 

Here is what I envisioned:



The event waits there until you want to click on it... and when you do the timer for those actions starts.  Maybe this is laziness... but using your delay you create a date/time event for one minute from now with those actions and then delay X minutes and each time you want to use this you have to change the time to being a minute from now to get the delay timer started.

It will be impossible to start timer after click. While you edit options scheduler is stopped. It starts when the preferences window of scheduler is closed.

As for the idea... I'll think about it.

Why not introduce named events that can be triggered by main menu commands (one command for each named event)?

Would you please consider adding the possiblity to add a event like "Do xxx on start of foobar?"

Thank you for you effort!

thanks alot. I've been waiting for this one for too long

I have 2 requests:
- is it possible to have an option : On playback end -> Proceed to the next playlist. I have many playlists for single artists or albums and it would be great if scheduler simply rolls to next playlist. With the current settings, it seems I could only specify 1 next playlist.
- An option to specify  which track should be played would be very nice

again, thanks for your effort. most wanted components
