You can do through Run Service, and adding a service as
http://www.lastfm.es/music/$replace(%artist%, ,+)
then assign this run service to a custom button.

Thanks wizel,
I'll try it out when i get home from work.

cheers!

EDIT:

I tried it, but that's not really what i meant.
I want a button to open a custom station in Foobar, not in a browser.

You can use nausea's Last.fm plugin, create a station playlist on its preferences page (after which it appears in the main menu) and then create a button in foobar2000's toolbar to access the playlist from the main menu. Works like a charm for me.

Nothing is impossible if you don't need to do it yourself.

That sounds quite logical.
I'll give it a  try tonight.


EDIT:
Ok, that worked.
However in the toolbar.
Is there a possibility to do it in for instance foo_uie_trackinfo_mod?

Okay, i found a way to make a button for a custom LastFM channel in foo_panel_splitter.

For that to work i'm using these plugins:
foo_lastfm_radio
foo_panel_splitter


Here it goes:
Create a custom station in the lastFM radio preferences.
Than create a button in the foo_panel_splitter, and insert a file/open command for the custom station:
Code: [Select]
$textbutton(10,10,28,18,last,eee,COMMAND:File/Open Last.fm Radio Station/Open LastFM Psych and Garage.;REFRESH,fontcolor:150-150-150 pencolor:150-150-150-255,fontcolor:0-0-0 pencolor:150-150-150-255)


It was so obvious that i totally overlooked it...

EDIT:

This seems to work for the most part. But I'll have to tweak a little to get it completely right.
