Hello.

Is there a way to make the album art respect the aspect ratio of the picture ? Sometimes the cover is a DVD cover but is displayed as a 'square'.
I don't find any setting related to aspect ratio in the Album art settings

Thanks for your component

I love this plugin but it would be nice if it would be able to show me the length of a track since it can display the playback time it is at it would be nice if it could be able to the tracks total duration. I also liked the textbloxk formatting but is there any documentation on that anywhere or are %artist% %title% and %playback_time% the only features?

You can use %length%

You can access the list of all title formatting from within foobar2000 main menu : Help>Title formatting help
Those commands works in foobar in general, they do not belong to this this specific component

foobar's Get Updates function didn't seem to detect the 1.0.1→1.0.2 update, just FYI.  I'm glad I checked manually for the new version though — the bugs you mentioned were fixed!

I did manage to break something while messing around - here's the config.js and the error I get.

I think I was trying to create another blank box to hide the right side of the taskbar.

  Thanks i didn't know that foobar had these features. I'm not using it for that long and you don't use features like that very often any way.

you should be able to. if you right click on the taskbar (deskband) and click on settings you should be able to use the interface to configure everything. You can then uncheck the visible mark on the differen trackbars.

-EDIT- Nevermind just noticed you were asking for the borders not the whole thing
-EDIT2- Also make sure that there are no text textblocks using null in the format if you use "" instead of null it doesn't throw the error. This one works config.js
the icons don't show because i don'have them of course

I'm using that config.js and I still get the recurring error instead of the deskband appearing, and foobar is rendered unusable.  Perhaps it's a problem elsewhere.

Hi aeidein!
Your error is caused by a null Format string in your config. It it in last text block, here:
"Name": "invisiblock: R trackbar",
"Format": null,  <--- This one
"FontName": "Segoe UI"
Don't know how it got there, I'll try to add some checks, as well as trackbar border colors.

Hamallainen: I will add ability to preserve aspect ration in next build.

It got fixed, somehow!
I tried fixing/replacing/deleting config.js; I even tried deleting %AppData%\Deskband and reinstalling, but it still threw an error.  Maybe it was still cached somewhere or something?  However, after another uninstall/reinstall (maybe I did it properly this time - I restarted explorer.exe after every step), it went back to the default profile, no error.

Thank you both!


Bug: In floating mode, explorer.exe crashes if you try to change the transparency value of the background color.  Not a big deal personally, since I was just playing around and don't plan on using it that way, but thought I'd let you know.

Suggestion: If the change trackbar border color / remove trackbar border options are implemented, perhaps the user could also choose a background color for the trackbars?


I could also see vertical trackbars being useful (e.g. for vertical layouts when the taskbar is on the left/right side of the screen).  I personally would love to put a vertical volume bar flush against the album art.

Hi,
I used the previous deskband controls without problems. Downloaded the latest version in W7, installed according to instructions. I can display it on the taskbar, configure it fully, but when I try to use it to control foobar, everything locks up, cannot use mouse on anything, I get a notification window and I have to access taskmanager through keyboard with ctr/alt/del to shut foobar down and take deskband off the taskbar.
Restarting foobar then without deskband control works fine.

Any idea how to get deskband into a usable state again?

Plugin works fine but i cant go to settings anymore.

I use Windows 7 64bit

Thank you for this plugin. Works great.

How can I move language panel to position after deskband panel (from right side)?
Drag and drop does not work for some reason.
windows 7
Spoiler (click to show/hide)


bug/suggestion: double-click restores foobar from minimized state works good, but when foobar window running in background and not minimized, double-click does not show it up.

Hi maxim7191
Both your issues are windows limitations.
Docked deskband cannot be moved, and floating deskaband(s) such as language indicator always appears on the left side.
Deskband is hosted in explorer.exe, and in windows one program cannot activate another program (e.g. bring it's window to front). So deskband sends command to foobar that tells it to show itself, and again, windows prevents programs from pop-out to front as they want. I guess this was done to prevent viruses or other malicious programs activate itself without user permission.

radi0n: you forget to unlock downloaded zip. This was many times mentioned here and in readme file. To fix it - remove everything, re-download, unblock and try again. Also, I recommend to copy deskband controls to system disk [C] before install. JPGs and PNGs are supported, as well as any other image format that .NET framework knows about.

After few restarts its working again. I dont know what You mean by 'unblock'. I download, extract with winrar, install foobar plugin and run Register Deskband.cmd. Configured and after restart i cant go to settings. But now is ok.
But plugin still dont read .PNG files.
For example. In catalog with mp3 i have mp3 files and file" 'front.png' - > plugin show only stub image. I change file format to .jpg and plugin show albumart ok.

Please read readme file, it's there.

For example. In catalog with mp3 i have mp3 files and file" 'front.png' - > plugin show only stub image. I change file format to .jpg and plugin show albumart ok.

Open foobar preferences, go to display section / album art and change search pattern for front cover to include front.png

Very nice Plugin! I can't get any text block to show up  i know that they are there, but the font is not visible . And yes, ich checked colors, sizes, transparency and the "visible" checkbox  ) Did this occur to anyone?
