2 New Skins for foo_popupplus

Comments and feedback are welcome. If you discover any bugs or have suggestions / questions please post!

Install: Extract the zip files into components/foo_popupplus directory. In foobar go File/Preferences/Popup Plus/Skins, and select the downloaded skin. Above the preview image of the skin you can find options to customize it to your needs.

The code is ok and you need the lastest v20071025 of PopUp Plus.

Would you like something like this?



PS. I coded it as a separate skin, i will integrate a "position CD/vinyl case right" into the present skins. Update will come soon.

short question: how is "no album art" picture handled? is it defined in skin or popup+ component itself define it over skin?

  • Totyo

You can define it in both. In the skin I put a "no cover" picture behind the layer of the avatar (albumart), which means if there is no cover found, the avatar layer will be blank and you can see the the picture behind it (you can still replace it with your own)

Defining in pop+ means that the avatar layer won't be blank at all, it will be always filled with image.

Go Preferences/Popupplus/Advanced

insert:

$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,*.jpg)
$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,*.png)
$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,front.jpg)
(etc etc, you can define to put different pictures for audio cds, radio streams, search for it in the forum)
images\nocover.jpg

Put your no cover picture in program files\foobar\images\nocover.jpg This will be the no cover picture but will be displayed as an avatar so it still overlays the nocover picture in the skin. This must be the last entry, otherwise the other expressions below it wont be noticed. The component scans from up to down and finds the first true expression (the "images\nocover.jpg" is always true)

I hope I explained well and you understand now.
