A suggestion/question: is it possible to add the functionality to increase/decrease the volume by using the mouse wheel when hovering the icon?


I'm pretty sure the mousewheel event isn't sent to the tray icon, but I will verify, this is a very good idea.



I verified, unfortunately the mousewheel event can't be received by the component, sorry I can't add this feature.

The Download link direct's you to the Foobar program not the component.
Please fix this.

???

Link in post 173 goes, as expected to the foobar2000 component repository. Download link there, downloads the file. Where are you having trouble?

You are clicking within a main menu of links related to Foobar2000. It is the main navigation menu bar common to every foobar2000.org page.
Try clicking download within the body of the web page. Hint: under links

Skreaxy, I agree this download system may be confusing the first time you see it. Unfortunately I don't control the page layout, and I'm sure you'll figure it out and find it less confusing the next time you have to use it.

Regards.

The thing is that under the bolded text 'Links', this Image will explain better.

And a download link to the component is what it is. Your image correctly shows that the link points to foo_AdvancedControls.zip.

What would you expect it to point to?

Please consider moving away from the computer and find someone with a clue.

Nice troll.
The problem was with the cookies/cache.

it is true that the event can not be received by the component; but you can add an option to control the volume with mousewheel when the mouse is over the whole systray ?

How could I, if I don't receive the mousewheel event?

This would require low-level hooks or DLL injection in Explorer. Which are both far beyond the scope of a Foobar2000 extension, very prone to crash unsuspecting end-user desktops, and possibly against the Foobar2000 SDK license.

I understand your request, I would love to be able to implement it a clean way, but from an engineering standpoint, this hack-y solution is begging for trouble.

hooking into the shell is a minefield of problems.

not only do you need to have access to do it, if running on a 64-bit OS it's not going to work unless a 64-bit hook dll is used and that then is a fun things to install if running from a 32-bit program (as is the case here).

and there's also not forgetting needing to do some form of IPC between the hook and the component. and if something fails in the hook dll then it can take the Windows shell down with it. plus there can be funkiness with the removal of the hook dll especially when doing fast close and starts of the parent program which can lead to other failures with it all.

I'm glad we have the same opinion. Not worth it in end-user software.

I've done it on my own desktop for other reasons (non-foobar-related), and even to answer business customer specific orders, always somewhere I could provide direct (and paid) support in case of trouble. For instance, using DLL injection in Explorer, I replaced the rendering procedure for the tray clock so it would be bigger and bear the full time, including the seconds, and the date at the same time on WinXP (and Win7).

But I would never pull that kind of trick in on-the-wild licensed desktop software, let alone free one. Recipe for failure.

Preference - Display - Default User Interface: Minimize to notification area
Then move the notification area icon to the hidden icons box.

Hi.

I have problem with Advanced Controls in Foobar on Windows 7 Pro x64 - the Advanced Controls icons doesnt show on. I see both of them in the tray icons list but after changing the "show icon and notifications" I get information that those icons are not active at the moment. The situation is the same in Foobar2000 version 1.1.1 and 1.2 - on both I tried Advanced Controls 0.6.7.4 and 0.6.5.4. The system is freshly installed with all patches. I got another Windows 7 Pro x64 installed more than 1 year ago on the same PC and everything works fine there (with Foobar2000 version 1.1.1).

Start Foobar2000, and click the little up arrow at the left of the visible tray icons to open the box (also called the "notification icons overflow"). You should see the Advanced Controls icons there. Drag (click+move) them out of the box to the visible tray, one by one, taking care to place them in the correct order. They should automatically reappear there next time you will start Foobar2000.

Yes I know that the icons should be there first time.. (Ive been using the plugin for more than 1 year  ) but in my situation they dont appear anywhere. I only see them on the list after clicking "Customize" tray icons. System says that they are inactive, so I dont thinks its about Windows that is blocking them.

If they are inactive and Foobar2000 is running, then the component is likely not loaded at all. Make sure it's installed properly, make sure Foobar2000 is fully restarted, you can maybe even reboot your machine, maybe some process is stuck somewhere, I don't know...

Good luck

Im working with that problem for a week now.. I've installed the component by copying the dll file and by using fb2k-component file many times. Also restarted the system few times and reinstalled Foobar2000. Its not a critical plugin for me but Im used to it    Just thought someone had similar problem so I wrote on this forum. Any info where to look in registry, Windows and Foobar configuration would be nice
