Why it should do so? The queuecontents component shows like the name says the content of queue. Why it should show a playlist which is already shown as  a playlist in foobar2000?

Is there a setting to make it so tracks are not removed from the list after they are played? I know it makes sense to remove them as they are no longer in the queue, but sometimes after a series of songs, I might think, "That was a nice sequence." and want to save it for a later date.

since that defeats the fundamental purposes of the queue.

i would suggest perhaps utilizing foo_playcount (Playback Statistics), then you can create a History autoplaylist.
in fact, if you use the v3.0 beta you don't even have to use the library.

something like this:
%last_played% DURING LAST 2 DAYS SORT DESCENDING BY %last_played%

@nobbie Configuration of edge styles is not possible. The edge style matches components on the Default UI side. Currently I'm not planning on implementing different edge styles since I think it just confuses people. (At least I was always confused about it when I was using CUI). I do know that a lot of CUI components allow this functionality but I think that's not the way to go.

To others (tweeny, Charuto) asking for "showing full playlist contents" or "not removing items": The component display only tracks in the foobar playback queue (as so many people have already explained here). The songs are automatically removed from the queue after they are played.

The component fulfills this purpose and I'm not planning on extending it in any way since that would just confuse people. It's important to understand that queue is a special concept in foobar and it's a bit different from other music players like Winamp.

does not work with 1.1.3 + newest colums Ui. If AutoSize is enabled the colums disappear after restart of foobar

Thank you for the (precise) bug report! The bug should be fixed in the latest version.

As always, auto-updater is the easiest way to update the component.

Updated the component. Basically just rebuilt with the new SDK meaning that you will need at least foobar 1.1.

Thank you for the component.

I found a bug - component window doesn't keep order of the reordered columns. Or is it feature?

0.4.1

Certainly not a feature

Can you tell me if you are using DUI or CUI? and which version of foobar?

1.1.7 beta 1
DUI with SimPlaylist 1.0 beta 3 (if it matters)

Hello kerpondile,

i found a little bug/glitch in  the component: when i add a new ui-element, remove firstly the "queue item" column and then add another columns i get following:



One time i even had success to show the content of one column in the display of another.

Is there any way to randomize/shuffle the contents of the queue (like one can in Winamp)? It's the feature I am missing the most since I moved from Winamp. And no, creating a new playlist for the queue is not an option. I only use one playlist that has all my mp3 files.

New update! This should fix column reordering issues. Apparently the column ordering has always been broken (I went through old versions), hopefully it is fixed now...

q-stankovic: This release might fix your problem too.

Please comment if you still experience any problems.

I have exactly the same result like in the screenshot. Using Dui and having the glitch in newset beta as also in older versions.
Here the steps how i can reproduce it: 1. remove queue contents editor from layout, 2. add it again, 3. add an song to the queue, 4. remove queue item column from ui-element, 5. add another column and the result can be seen in screenshot, 6. remove now this column, 7. add again another column, 8. you get three rows now (the rows consits of content of old columns), 9. do the steps as long as you like and you will have many rows.

q-stankovic: Thanks for the detailed instructions. However, I (still) cannot reproduce this. I've tried adding the item to the queue using the context menu and by drag&drop (step 3) but still no luck. Using beta3, but I've tried it with beta 4 using layout scratchbox.

I'm quite clueless what this might be about. What OS are you using? Did you experience the issue with the old versions? (you can download them here https://sites.google.com/site/salskisite/foo_queuecontents).

And a wild guess: is it possible that somehow the settings are not saved correctly? Are you using portable installation?

firstly, this component is one of my absolute favorites!!

i do, however, have a question: is there a way I can get %queue_total% to show up in the status bar in CUI?

I tried putting %queue_total% at the end of all the status bar code, but it shows up in the status bar as a question mark.

is there a way I can get fb2k to read that tag/property properly?

i'd really like for a text field somewhere to show, when a queue is present, this: "## songs currently queued"

or "## currently in queue"

is it possible to do this on the status bar or some place?

Not in the status bar, but in a column, for example (as you wrote already) [%queue_indexes%'|'][%queue_total%] displays 2|10 (second queued track of ten).
This is HA. Not the Jerry Springer Show.

today I tried this. I enqueued 4 albums by the same artist, chose the playlist created by queueucontents and set playback to "randomize", but the tracks were played following the queue order. Then I tried with all the shuffle options but it kept going by order, except that when I chose "shuffle (albums)" it played track 1 from album A, then track 1 from album B, etc

Please try using the "Edit->Sort->Randomize" menu option I suggested. Note that it is different from from shuffle options.

When the playlist is reordered, the playback queue is changed immediately to reflect the changes. Playback order follows the order of playback queue.

A feature request:

Is it possible to have a variable that would let us create a column that shows us the source of the queued tracks - means: the name of the playlist from which the track was queued or nothing if track was queued from another source (library viewer).

q-stankovic: Good idea! I'm also thinking of  %list_index%, %list_total% in addition to %playlist_name%.

I will think about this for a while.
