First, thanks for the great plugin.

I use this tool (I highly recommend it) - [edit: I don’t think we care. These tools are ten-a-penny, and overpriced at that.—db1989] -  to download the audio of youtube files. This tool adds a bullet point to the beginning of the title tag of the file.

The problem - The DeskBand plugin doesn't display properly the title if it contains a bullet point. (and maybe other special chars like apostrophe)

Windows 7, Foobar V1.2.3 , DeskBand 0.4.0.0

eldarien, can you fix it ?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, not in the current version. Deskband Controls project as it is now is closed. I am working on new version, with more features and better UI, but it is not ready yet. I will test your scenario when developing new version.
Stay tuned

That's great to hear! Make your plugin the best it can be!

Not for me, at least, not right now.

Please, if someone have the link to the component, could you host it on something like DropBox or the like ?

not really. you'd expect it to be in the first post but as eldarien has just regular member status, he/she can't edit their first post.

@eldarien, you should ask for developer status. you could then edit your posts. i'd also suggest renaming the file to foo_deskbandcontrols.zip so the components install dialog can handle it.

I’ve added that link to the OP. Indeed, eldarien, feel free ask an Administrator if you can be added to the Developer group.

Hello there, it's me again.

I'm having problems using it on Windows 7, while using the Windows Classic theme. I mean, the CD cover, buttons and bars are there, but I can't see any text. I tried to play with the Deskband Control themes and the text color, nada. However, it was working perfectly using the Aero theme.

Anyone had this problem or knows a way around it ?

Thanks !

Nevermind, corrected this by unloading/reloading the Deskband Controls from the taskbar.

I've been using it quite a while and love it (great customization).  However I don't think presets are working, if i change the layouts and save it, nothing changes if I try others.  Presets are supposed to save the current settings right? or does it do something else. (Can someone confirm.)

Secondly could you please add an option to use this as an windowshade mode, whilst there is foo_title your layout implementation is far superior (easy to modify attributes, text formats, ability to manipulate seeking and volume).  The ability to make it float instead of dock with the ability to add a color background or image.  Would be kickass, at the moment it is merely awesome.

p.s. I really do appreciate all the hard work you've put in.

Hi,

I only want the previous and next buttons (I already have the play/pause on my keyboard), so I am looking for the options to taking the tweaking a little further:

* selecting which buttons I want
* the possibility to use bigger buttons than these 16px one's

Any chance that functionality like this might come around soon? Else, anyone can point me in the direction of the source?
Otherwise: nice very add-on, but I'm afraid I'm looking for a more minimalistic approach.

Is there a problem with %ispaused% and %isplaying% in DeskBand Controls ?

This text format (which works correctly in Foobar's "playlist view" and in "Default User Interface") doesn't work correctly in DC :

$ifgreater(%ispaused%,0,track_is_paused,track_is_playing)

Clicking the play/pause button just toggles DC's [paused] but the result of the text-format above doesn't change.

BTW - Sometimes if I click the play/pause over and over very quickly suddenly %ispaused% changes.

TIA.

Try:
Code: [Select]
$if(%ispaused%,track_is_paused,$if(%isplaying%,track_is_playing))

No, I got the same results as my
$ifgreater(%ispaused%,0,track_is_paused,track_is_playing)

also same results with:
$if(%ispaused%,track_is_paused,track_is_playing)

Hi everyone. Is the source code for this component available?

Im in a process of writing a plugin that will allow Foobar2000 to be run as an external player for XBMC (for now, but can be used for other programs alike as well), and this will not only be my first Foobar2000 component development but it will be my fist C++ project so I need as many leads as I can get. I basically need the foobar2000 DeskBand Controls' interface with Foobar2000's playback control and commands.

On Aug 28 I've posted a question on this Deskband thread and haven't really got a good answer to my question :
Am I the only one who has a problem with %ispaused% and %isplaying% in DeskBand Controls ?
Any reply will be appreciated.

Hi LL25255252!

When deskband controls is paused it does not query foobar for new formatting, and that is why you see what you see.
I guess there is no way to change this in current version, sorry.

cybasoul: please contact me on email and I will send you sources.

Thank u eldarien for your answer.
You've posted before that you are working on a new version. Do you plan to make %ispaused% work in it or create a new similar variable ?

Hello,

Is it possible to get the original file back online? I loved this addon and would like to see it working again on my computer after a recent reformat.

edit: sorry, nevermind. I realize the mirror works. My bad!
