You are welcome.
By the way, the context menu can get quite busy so not all options are always visible. Same with the main menu. Shift right click [context menu], shift left click [main menu] will oftentimes show more options.

Is there way to change the way it displays track titles? Currently it just shows %title%. I only found a way to change the way it displays album titles from the preferences.

i have many song or album have Multiple Artist
and i tag artist tag use foobar' Multiple var
like  artistname1;artistname1;artistname3

if i use %album artist% only can show have album' artist
if use %artist% will show  "artistname1;artistname1;artistname3" name 1 group = =

so...
i can only group use %<artist>% or %<album artist>%  (not %artist%  or %album artist% This is not the same)

now
i can see all  artistname1  artistname1 artistname3 on Different groups is ok

But a problem now

"Can not show artist image"    .........

in display / artist
i try setting this

E:\artist\%artist%.*  but only can show on this artist have album or only 1 artist.... 

so i try setting this

E:\artist\%<artist>%.*

but not work.........


How can successful artists picture it?

if i understood you correctly you separated the 3 artists in separate groups and want to display artist.jpg for each of the groups? ... try $meta(artist,0)

Edit: ofc i mean E:\artist\$meta(artist,0).jpg  ... to use your example

but artist2 ,3,.... not worK

$meta(artist,0)  is a array Selected ?
i try $meta(artist,1) all show  artist2 photo

so ... i need a for() function to show artists2 ,3, 4, 5.... ? 

but foobar not have for()...

use
$if($and($meta(artist,2),%artist%),E:\artist\$meta(artist,2).*,)
$if($and($meta(artist,1),%artist%),E:\artist\$meta(artist,1).*,)
$if($and($meta(artist,0),%artist%),E:\artist\$meta(artist,0).*,)
not work too

i think %artist% can be check $meta(artist,2)
$meta(artist,2) == %artist%
but not


if artist  tag  is  Amy; Kelly; john
$meta(artist,1) => Kelly
$meta(artist,2) => john

and now is show Kelly's Group = meta(artist,1)

$if($and($meta(artist,2),%artist%),E:\artist\$meta(artist,2).*,)
$if($and($meta(artist,1),%artist%),E:\artist\$meta(artist,1).*,)

So it should be

$if($and($meta(artist,2),%artist%),E:\artist\$meta(artist,2).*,)  john != kelly
$if($and($meta(artist,1),%artist%),E:\artist\$meta(artist,1).*,) kelly  == kelly

but  show  john.jpg    not kelly.jpg

you can

1.
get any 1 music file
and type
Amy; Kelly; john
in this file "artist" tag

2.
file --> preferencns --> DISPLAY --> ALBUM ART ->ARTIST
type

$if($and($meta(artist,2),%artist%),E:\artist\$meta(artist,2).*,)
$if($and($meta(artist,1),%artist%),E:\artist\$meta(artist,1).*,)
$if($and($meta(artist,0),%artist%),E:\artist\$meta(artist,0).*,)


3.
make 3 photo name

4.
in ESplayplist make a GROUP
GROUP by %<artist>%  (not %artist%)


now,
you can see 1file , 3 artist GROUP on esplaylist

Just going around... qawzs, I suppose your problems rise out of using nested $if syntax.
$if(A,B,$if(C,D...)) means that program performs next $if only if it didn't succeed in finding image with current pattern. When it finds the image, the $if is terminated and foobar doesn't search for other artists.

Solution - instead of nesting $if(A,B,$if(C,D...)), use simple chain
Code: [Select]
$if(A,B,C)
$if(D,E,F)
...

and everything should be fine

btw is does .* actually work?? Is it a specialty of ESPlaylist or ColumnsUI?

Foobar does have that if-function exactly like you say, but as Tigermess pointed out, it will terminate to search for more files when artist a is found. So the if function the way you write it, will not give you the desired results (artist b and c will not show up).

1.
yes, i try long time and i think so...

but i try any way... not a way can show all .....


2.
and i see  Foobar2000:Title Formatting Reference

$ifequal(n1,n2,then,else)
Compares the integer numbers n1 and n2, if n1 is equal to n2, the then part is evaluated and its value returned. Otherwise the else part is evaluated and its value returned.

$ifgreater(n1,n2,then,else)
Compares the integer numbers n1 and n2, if n1 is greater than n2, the then part is evaluated and its value returned. Otherwise the else part is evaluated and its value returned.

$iflonger(s1,s2,then,else)
Compares the length of the strings s1 and s2, if s1 is longer than s2, the then part is evaluated and its value returned. Otherwise the else part is evaluated and its value returned.

not see a function can check  x=abc (x is Variable ; abc is string)

if i want to check a strings , how can?

Foobar does have that if-function exactly like you say, but as Tigermess pointed out, it will terminate to search for more files when artist a is found. So the if function the way you write it, will not give you the desired results (artist b and c will not show up).

Maybe combining $if with $and could work, look here for reference: TF help.

i have try $and()

but $and($mate(artist,2),%artist%)  = $and(true,true)

so Always return true

i find $stricmp() can check this
so use this

$if($stricmp(%artist%,$meta(artist,2)),$meta(artist,2),false)
$if($stricmp(%artist%,$meta(artist,1)),$meta(artist,1),false)


but not work ...
Always return false
$stricmp(a,a) ==> true
$stricmp(%artist%,$meta(artist,2) ==> false

$strcmp(s1,s2)
Performs a case-sensitive comparison of the strings s1 and s2.

$stricmp(s1,s2)
Performs a case-insensitive comparison of the strings s1 and s2.

These should work

Edit: too late

I suggest you check each element of your code to see what is being returned to debug it, e.g %artist% and $meta(artist,2)

Hello, ive gotten this plugin recently and already made allot of twicks to it, i wanna save the complete configuration i have done since i need to remove it and put it twice under two tabs(one would be for active playlist following while the other tab will be for library browsing).
So how exactly do i save the configuration for EsPlaylist?

A side question, whats the "library selection" playlist is for?

In your user profile (W7) or under documents & settings/username (wxp) there is a folder called application data or similar (dont have an english OS here), there you'll find a folder foobar. There is one folder with all cfg files from all plugins.
In addition to that, you might want to look at foo jesus, which is an automatic backup addon.

The library mode is for browsing your library independently from playlists and playback. Never use it, but thats how I understood it.

Enabling says you can rate by doubleclicking at the stars.

Actually the only way it works for me is to disable "Rating editing" and enable the global inline tag editing(any other variation wont let me to edit the rating), weird. and thanks.

Maybe you need another adjustment:

Install Quick Tagger and add it to Keyboard Shortcuts.  Use such as Ctrl 1 for Tagging /  Quick Tagger / Set <Rating> to/1
In Preferences > EsPlaylist > Behaviour you should put "Rating Editing" commands then.
For example: Star: 1  Command: Quick Tagger / Set <Rating> to/1

Hope that helps.

Thanks allot that exactly what i needed. One more thing though, each time i try to change a rating using this method he pops a pop up asking me if im sure, can i get rid of that and make him do it without asking?

That could be the restriction in editing files from Quicktagger - go to:
Preferences ->  Tagging -> Quicktagger
There is an option how many track editings require a confirmation.

The preferences are sorted alphabetically and though it might be intimidating or confusing at first, most things can be changed there (also, take a look at the Advanced page: lots of "hidden" settings there too!
Another good starting point to search for info on the diverse components in foobar is here. You can click on most components which leads you to the respective documentation.
