Put $if(%isplaying%,$rgb(255,0,0)) before every string you want to be coloured.

doesn't work

$puts(line,$if(%isplaying%,7a675e,363432))
$if(%isplaying%,$set_style(frame-top,1,$get(line)))
$if(%isplaying%,$set_style(frame-bottom,1,$get(line)))
$puts(%title%,$if($if(%isplaying%,$rgb(255,0,0))

like this?

No, that's not NG playlist code, maybe that's PSS.
You have to put my string in Columns UI configuration, Preferences -> Display -> Columns UI -> Playlist View -> Columns tab.
For every column put that string BEFORE the string you already have.

Nice layout!
What formatting string did you use for the Album List tree view (the sorting by first character)?
Could you share it, I would like to use it.

You could try something like $left(%artist%,1), although you'd need more $if()s and stuff if you wanted to put compilations at the top like that.

Thanks, that triggered me into this:

$left($replace($directory_path(%path%),$left(%path%,7),,\,|)|$stripprefix([%tracknumber% - ][%track artist% - ]%title%),1)|$replace($directory_path(%path%),$left(%path%,7),,\,|)|$stripprefix([%tracknumber% - ][%track artist% - ]%title%)

This works for me, except for the compilations. For that I need "some $if()s stuff" .

Just thought I'd mention for people in the future that I futzed around with attempting to change the now playing track's color for hours, it works fine on another machine; finally rebooted FB2K and voila.  So, as is the case with a couple of other settings, reboots do the trick.
