how did you add a ratings column?


Preferences - Default User Interface - Playlist View
add new column.
name: Rating
pattern: $ifgreater(%rating%,0,$repeat(?,%rating%)$repeat( ,$sub(5,%rating%)),)

Just add a Custom Grouping Scheme like :

'//' $if(%album artist%=VA,%album artist%,%artist%) - '[' %date% ']' %album% '\\'

The basic controls are on the keyboard.

How did you manage to change the shape of the progression cursor ? I thought it was hardcoded... Thanks in advance.

Is it Lyrics Show Panel ? I'm intrigued... how did you manage to integrate it so well within the Default UI ?

It's theme based.

Thanks shakey snake, but regarding your first answer, unfortunately that's not what I was asking for. My question was not about how to DISPLAY a panel within the Default UI, because as you can see I've already managed to do so with several panels (Lyrics, Peakmeter...) :

I also used Dockable Panels to extend DefaultUI, but had very bad experiences... Bugs, slowdowns, panels not sticking well enough, etc. And some panels (eg. the most important for me, Track Display, that has no alternative in Default ui) won't work at all/crash instantly. The developer, cwbowron is sadly not responsive, and I don't know if he develops the component anymore.

FYI I have posted in cwbowron's "foo_cwb_hooks" thread some days ago, and I haven't got a reply either...

Why have you ruined such a subtle and pleasing visual style by plonking giant black backgrounds on stuff?

Is there any way to get rid of the column headers and/or the alternating background colors for list views?

I don´t think i´ve ruined it. I just hate nice and shiny backgrounds on things, which I´m looking at all the time. Like my player for example. If the background would be white, my eyes would not like this.

I think the problem is not the dark background. For my taste it's the collision of pitch black backgrounds and very bright borders/fonts. Some elements look somewhat out of place because of this. Maybe it could use a bit less contrast for more harmony. But it's only my opinion, of course

At first, no, this is Windows XP with the Ubuntu Human VS. Running Foobar also on Ubuntu, but don´t have it running all the time.

Second, you all are right, it´s YOUR opinion and when I prefer black backgrounds, then it is my taste =) But thanks for advising me to change it ^^ I will never do it, but thanks =)

Foobar2000 on ubuntu would be pretty awesome.

Although I'm sure if you spent some time you could get a more efficient music playing and organising solution with MPD and some real-deal tagging scripts, not to mention the benefits of things being stored on a server. And then you could even have a network'd UI by exporting X to a client on your PC, negating all performance benefits anyway

FYI I have chosen a different approach, by having a very simple Debian-based file server (command-based, no GUI) for all the storage (audio and video), and then a XP-based client with foobar / MPC / etc.. The server acts simply as a network drive for the client.

With a direct Gigabit link between the two PCs, performance is not an issue, even for Full HD videos.

DeepAnger, those genre-tabs are cool. How to?


Hi,

Hmmm, I just added them in Layout Editing Mode... (but to tell the truth, I had to restart from scratch several times). Just download the Theme I exported and start from there if you want.

Greetings.

I've successfully switched to the new Interface, it's really nice and I think it's a huge improvement over the old one, but there are still some things I'm not able to replicate.

This is what I use as a replaygain indicator. Just make a custom column with:
Code: [Select]
$if(%replaygain_album_gain%,A,$if(%replaygain_track_gain%,T,X))


And modify to your hearts delight of course.

First of all, in the status bar I'd like to have the total playing time of the selected tracks plus the volume, aligned to the right side and separated by a separator.

Right-click on the status bar and enable the respective options.

Thanks that's exactly what I meant! Do you know how to color the 'X' in red? I've tried with $rgb function without any success
