When I try to group by genre and then by artist album-artist it shows something like this:

Electronic  Jazz        Rock        Progressive Rock
Rock        Jazz        Acoustic  Jazz
Rock        Jazz        Blues      Rock
Jazz          Rock        Pop        Jazz
..............................

It don't group all the same genre under the same genre. It keeps repeating genres. It keeps the folder order.

Could someone explain (in layman's terms, please  ) what ESPlaylist does, and why you would use it instead of ELPlaylist?  I still don't know what it's for

It's pretty much a foobar version of itunes artist / album browser.

OK, I'm not familiar with iTunes, but that confuses me further!  I thought it was a playlist, not a browser?  They seem different concepts to me.  I'm obviously missing something

DUI?  Meaning Default User Interface (as opposed to Columns UI)?  Or something else?

Default User Interface, yes.

They are, but EsPL handles both, you can change modes between viewing playlists and viewing the library. Instead of viewing either as a long list of tracks, it can group them how you like (e.g. artists or albums), and just show the group title (and art).

ELPL doesn't let you hide subgroups, you can only show/hide the tracks, and it doesn't let you browse your library. EsPL is also lots easier to set up.

Newest update has support for playlist operations like Cut, Paste, Remove, Crop, etc.

I love Ssenna so much for his speedy updating

Look  out!
Group-changing of "Artist Name" looses all "Track Titles" of all marked albums! Please check that!
(0.0.5.2 aplha)

Guys obviously I must be doing something wrong while testing this component.
I am unable to display nothing in the DUI element.
I've just dropped dll file into the components folder, restarted Foobar and added a new element.
Also in the preferences dialog under ES playlist I can only see grouping tab. Am I looking at the wrong place?

Also is there a more proper place other than this thread to report issues?

There is a big accessibility problem with all the dialogs in DUI. It is not possible to use the tab key to navigate. Also if DUI element is added it is not focusable using keyboard.

senna (developer) maybe look here once in a year or so... . About other bug reports: bare in mind its only experimental alpha release so malfunctions is absolutely normal. hotkey / playlist functions was added in latest 0.0.52 release so it quite fresh... for me its even miracle that mouse wheel worked from version 0.0.1. alpha release is alpha release you know

Ok, I don'thave problems with the fact it's an alpha quality, it may be improved in the future. But hey, it should display list of track am I correct? And I don't know how can I configure it to do so. Is it a problem when I can't see other tabs in its preferences dialog page or do I need to look somewhere else?
I have also tried to delete a playlist view DUI element in case presence of both these causes inconsistencies but still I don't know how to make it display something. I haven't changed anything at the grouping tab so far.

have you try rclick / playlist / follow active playlist ? this should at least show you actively selected playlist... it works for me with playlist tabs quite corectly. (currently the simplest view for me is obtained by rclick / options / view style / Flat view (fixed) )

Hello,
OK, thanks for the hint. It's all working fine.
I can see standard listview headers when I add the DUI element so I assumed it uses list view control for displaying tracks too. I was wrong it's custom control created by the author. It means it's not accessible thus It's not targetted to me or other such people who require accessible software.
Other than that it's great. Thanks for the help again.

You mean you want a tracklist like the regular Playlist View? Have you tried double clicking on a album? That switches the view from covers to the tracklist.

This had me puzzled for a while as well.

In the latest 2 version, I get a C++ error when I try to right-click on the playlist
There is no other, and foobar locks up. I think it is related to the redistributable version - can anyone please tell me a version that works?

I have the same problem with EsPlaylist. On CUI I get C++ error and on DUI right click does nothing. It's probably v0.0.5.* issue.

Great. Now right click works ok.

Has anyone figured out how to "go back" to the previous viewing modes?

When you group by Artist/Album you get the list of artists. Double-click opens the list of albums, another one opens the track list. However, I couldn't find a way to go back to the album view. If ssenna added some commands like EsPlaylist->Previous this would be my media library viewer of choice

double clicking the group headers takes you back.
