SimPlaylist (foo_simplaylist)
This new playlist view includes multiple grouping levels, album art, automatic column resizing, smooth scrolling, a unique scrolling mode that pins the topmost group header, clickable rating columns for tags and playback statistics, and a separate playlist search UI element.

SimPlaylist is meant for users who want the same look and feel as the original playlist view with some additional features, but without the typical configuration overhead that comes with other components.

I love this, took only a few minutes to get used to and the pinning feature is godsend. Thank you. Will report bug in case I got any.

Small suggestion: posibility to edit parameters (name, format, align, etc.) of the default (predefined) columns.
Thanks

Looks like there is a problem with non-English artist names/albums - I see duplicates in the view.

UPD.
Sorry, my fault - was wrong sorting

If I choose group preset Artist / cover / album, Disc sub group does not have a horizontal line, is that intended? Also what determines the dim state of text, I can't seem to figure that out.

Thank you very much for this new component!

However, I seem to have a problem with sorting the playlist entries...
I configured the following string as "sorting pattern":

%album artist% -%album% - %disc number% - %track number% - %artist% - %title%

This setting doesn't seem to have any effect. Sorting with this exact same string via

Edit / Sort / Sort by...

however has the desired effect. I even tried to enter

%title%

into the sorting pattern, which resulted in the exact same sort order in SimPlaylist.
Don't know if this is simply me being too dumb or if this is in fact a bug...

Wow, this is great.

There seems to be a problem with album art for albums with multiple discs though; They display in EsPlaylist and the album art viewer. The tittleformatting for my front artwork is
Code: [Select]
$ifgreater(%totaldiscs%,1,..\,)%album artist% - $iflonger(%album%,80,$left(%album%,10)*'...',%album%)' [Front].'*

I'm confirming the album art problem for multi cd albums. It occurs only and whenever multiple subgroups are shown; then the place where the album art should be remains empty (white, clickable box).

Would it be possible to have an option to disable the automatic highlighting of matched brackets or better yet, a $function  so that it can be applied only where wanted. At the moment it's not possible to completely highlight text in matched brackets using triangle brackets. For example
Code: [Select]
%title%[>>>' (feat. '%featuring%')'<<<]

Wow... this is great. Much better than ESPlaylist for my taste and needs. Thank you very much, Frank.

nice component! Even Rating database has been considered ! . However I'm missing a feature from Columns UI: an ability to filter playlist grouping using wildcards.

Nice & fast loading!
But for some reason it doesn't count fb2k-defined album art locations - and even ignores folder.jpg in the folder.
If there's a way to display it (especially for subgroups) - the settings should definitely be much clearer.
Great work, though. I normally don't use Graphical playlist views, but this one is definitely an exception.

i think beta2 has blocked all album art from loading in this component AND foo_facets. if i remove the playlist from my layout and restart, facets will show art correctly again.

Thanks for all feedback. I will skip feature requests for now and focus on usage questions and issues.

If I choose group preset Artist / cover / album, Disc sub group does not have a horizontal line, is that intended?

Yes, to better distinguish them from first level subgroups.

Also what determines the dim state of text, I can't seem to figure that out.

I have added two documentation sections on column and group colors.

However, I seem to have a problem with sorting the playlist entries...

This sort order is used when you click on a group column.

Looks like a limitation of foobar2000's own album art loader.
Album list has the same issue when you select an album with multiple discs.

Very neat!  Can we have collapsible groups/subgroups?

can you implement the possibility of hiding the column headers?

I recognized something strange:
I have some music files which have embedded cover art. In the build in cover art element the cover shows up. But the simplaylist doesn't show up the embedded cover art. I use the net 1.1.7 beta and I can see that the image is shown in context menu which belongs to the editing of album art. I have no idea what the problem is  ...
Does this depends on the used tag types?

Does the art show in the cover art element if you select the whole album?

I also have a problem with sorting.

As group header I use the default Artist - Album / Cover and I use the %Path:_sort% for sorting.
but, for some tracks I get the %path_sort% sorting all messed up.
The first 4 tracks displayed are here:

M:\Music\Progressive\Opeth\1995 - Orchid\07. Opeth - The Apostle In Triumph.mp3
M:\Music\Progressive\Opeth\1996 - Morningrise\01. Opeth - Advent.mp3
M:\Music\Progressive\Opeth\1998 - My Arms Your Hearse\05. Opeth - The Amen Corner.mp3
M:\Music\Progressive\Opeth\1998 - My Arms Your Hearse\06. Opeth - Demon Of The Fall.mp3
M:\Music\Progressive\Opeth\1998 - My Arms Your Hearse\07. Opeth - Credence.mp3
...
M:\Music\Progressive\Opeth\2001 - Blackwater Park\01. Opeth - The Leper Affinity.mp3
M:\Music\Progressive\Opeth\2001 - Blackwater Park\02. Opeth - Bleak.mp3
M:\Music\Progressive\Opeth\1995 - Orchid\01. Opeth - In The Mist She Was Standing.mp3


If I click the group header, or if I use the Edit/Sort by file path, it gets sorted correctly, but then when I change selecton on the tracks with facets 1.0, I lose the sorting and I get the tracks in the wrong order again.

All the tracks have the same album artist, with the same casing, same album and same date and should be grouped acordingly.  Also, for now, it only has happened to the "Opeth" folder.
I reloaded tag info from files, rewrote the file tags and still nothing.
If you need more feedback please ask.


Also, this playlist view+covers is running blazing fast! it's great. Thanks a lot!

One functionality is missing which is available in the standard foobar playlist: Ctrl+Shift+Up/Down of moving items.

I don't know if it is widely used but I think it's part of the "feel" of the standard playlist.

Other than that very welcome component. Very impressive! Big thanks.

Hi!

I've some kind of request/bug (not sure how I should classify this):

If I choose to use the highlight triangle-brackets in the playlist (like seen below) and the focus switches (e.g. on song change) on it, it's not using XOR coloring. What I mean is that the highlighted text seems to vanish behind the focus bar (If it is called so). In the original playlist view very highlighted text same as not highlighted appear in white. Could you please change that?
Code: [Select]
>>>Text<<<

Apart from that I'm very glad with that great component!

However, I seem to have a problem with sorting the playlist entries...
I configured the following string as "sorting pattern": (...)
This setting doesn't seem to have any effect.

This sort order is used when you click on a group column.


Then I'd like to ask for an option to autosort the playlist entries.

Beta 3 released, details in the first post. Thanks for all reports.

(...) when I change selecton on the tracks with facets 1.0, I lose the sorting and I get the tracks in the wrong order again.

Probably related to a bug fixed in Facets 1.0 beta 2.

Bug report: when use facets with simplaylist (...)

Please use the send report button from the crash dialog. There is no need to paste logs here.

One functionality is missing which is available in the standard foobar playlist: Ctrl+Shift+Up/Down of moving items.

Unfortunately, those are already used for multi-selection purposes.

i have a question. in ESplaylist, my group header has the album and date, but groups are build with the help of %album%. so if an album has got different dates or artists, it still stays in one group.
in simplaylist a every date has got a different group. is it possible to change the behaviour to the one of ESplaylist?

additionally i sugguest to add a shine and mirror effect to the album art display.
