A small creature in need of being squashed? TagBox outputs 'Sample component: on_init()' to the log file on start up. Apparently this is an artifact of the example code from the fb2k SDK.

Is there any way to use this with Columns UI?

You can use it but not as a panel, I think developer already said it will not support CUI as he doesnt use it.
I too wish someone would port/copy this out to a Columns UI Panel... :/

Not even if we are persuasive?

I am also using this component for display purposes.
When nothing is selected, TagBox shows nothing.
Could you please implement an option for showing metadata of the track which is currently playing,
even if nothing is selected?

I have a small suggestion for this which I would absolutely LOVE to see: could you implement some way to add or remove album artwork in the tags?

the background on this is that I absolutely cannot stand it when I see mp3s with embedded artwork and I hate having to open up iTunes to remove the cover art when it'd be amazing if foobar had image addition/removal built in to it!

so do you know if it is possible to implement some way to at least remove any associated music file artwork from the tags? i don't really need a tool that can add artwork, but simply one that can remove it. 

I think artwork removal/adding is something that should have been a part of foobar from the beginning in the 'Properties' dialog box but I don't know if that'd ever be implemented.

thanks a bunch for your time and consideration, I've been using this tool a bit now and it works for me well! I just have that one suggestion though!

I've been thinking about this myself, I'll give it more thought

I do have this need myself I use mp3tag to remove embedded cover art instead of itunes though (much lighter and free). Unfortunately the foobar2000's public API doesn't provide any means to manipulate the embedded cover art yet but there is some kind of place holder for it so it's most likely planned for future. As soon as this functionality is added to the API I'll consider adding it to TagBox if it's not added to foobar2000 as core feature.

you can remove embedded album art using the standard properties dialog. just highlight all fields, right click>copy, then use the tools button>remove tags. now right click>paste fields and this puts all your tags back from the clipboard.

That in not very safe, because posible ReplayGain values will be washed

A request:

Often enough a value i like to add is not present: neither in database nor in a predefined value list. A field in the left part of the box where an value can be typed in would be ideal - maybe (in case of predefined lists) the value could be added to the list.

EDIT:

You could let Tagbox act as a selection viewer. So (depending on general setting in preferences -> display) it would either always show the now playing track ("prefer current playing track") or show the now playing track only if nothing else is selected ("prefer current selection"). However, that makes only sense for the ui-element but not for the standalone window.

Thank you for the great plugin!

I while ago I encountered crash caused by foo_tagbox.dll 0.208. I submitted the crash report.

I also noticed that the keyboard combination Ctrl+Down which should (according to the documentation) apply changes and move to the next track actually opens context menu (the same way as simply pressing Down does).

Hello all.

I was wondering about if you can add other tags than those already existing from the start in TagBox. What I need is an Album Art field, but how do I create one?

I do not use this, but loaded it in order to help. Are you kidding with this question?
He clearly has an add button in his configuration options whether you use it as a stand alone window or as an embedded ui element.
Just add album artist with the space if you are trying to gain access to foobars field.

But if I set it like this: http://spunit.tk/x/albumartist.png, then Albumartist field in the file becomes empty, and not what I wrote in TagBox. Am I doing it wrong? Btw I'm a noob.

How you do know the field is empty?  What are you doing to confirm? By the way....be careful with your spelling.  album artist with a space does not equal albumartist. I just added a field called test...used the plugin to add testdata as data to a song and field was populated just fine. If you are still having trouble you will need to clearly specify step by step what you are doing.

EDIT:All your imagine shows is that you have told the plugin to add a filed name album artist with a name album artist to its visual element so that it can edit said field. What did you do to add data.

My bad, it's not the Albumartist that is wrong... When I for example set a different Artist, all the metadata in the file becomes all empty. It shows fine in foobar, but it makes the file all empty... Here's a picture showing what happens if i set field 'Artist' (in a file full of metadata) to 'Whatever': http://spunit.tk/x/weird.jpg. Thanks for your patience.

Nothing is disappearing. If metadata shows somewhere, in this case Foobar, then it exists. It does not temporarily disappear when you use explorer to view the data and reappear when using foobar.

Here is what is happening. You change a tag in foobar and it rewrites the file and updates the tag using the most recent version of IDV2. Explorer can not read this version. If this is troubling to you, Preferences>Advanced>Tagging>Tick compatibility mode. Otherwise, not do worry about it. Your tags, as evidence by viewing in foobar or near everything except explorer are intact.

Thanks a lot, the mode in Preferences did the trick. I think understand what you said, but I want it to be right in explorer too, but now that's all fixed, thanks!

But, one problem left. 3 tags doesn't work as it should (according to explorer). These tags are 'rating' 'albumartist' and 'year'. For example, if a file with already declared Albumartist, Year, and Rating (those stars in explorer) is dragged into foobar, TagBox then shows these fields as empty. Any way to get around this?

EDIT: Omg, I found out that Albumartist tag is 'band', and Year is 'date' . But this rating (those stars in explorer: http://spunit.tk/x/weird.jpg ) I still can't seem to edit. Maybe it's a tag name other than 'rating'?

This tag - a custom ID3 frame called POPM with varying interpreations - is not supported by foobar. This post is about foobar2000 and POPM support.

Oh, so it doesn't support it, too bad. Well I think I'll go with the 'rating' tag then.

Sorry I had to mention this in the documentation:
In the configuration page you can choose whether Down key opens the drop-down menu and Page Down key moves the selection down or vice versa.
