I believe the space was meant for displaying images, but for text only I rather stay with a more compact/scrolless view.

I've to ask, is it intended? If so may the developer consider some way to choose a more similar dui look in this regard?

Possible bug:
When I reset the settings page from "Preferences", "Sorting pattern:" added values are not deleted.
Could be intentionally.

Can you add playlist filters/association (Columns UI calls it filters; EsPlaylist calls it association) for group presets? An example is here.


+1 This should be a usefull add on.

After changing tags, the groups and subgroups behave strangely until you let them reload by changing playlist and then changing back, then they behave as they should.

Try for example to change the album tag of one track in the middle of an album, the tracks before remain as they were before, but ALL the tracks in the album that comes after the changed one are grouped together, with the name of the changed track. Everything becomes correct after a reload.

This is awesome but I'm getting a major bug when I restart foobar: SimPlaylist seems to inisist that my foobar window be full screen height, or taller even. It also doesn't allow me to resize it vertically, so the only way to fix is to remove the SimPlaylist and go back to default playlist. If I add SimPlaylist which foobar's running, it's fine until I restart.

Also, can I implore you to let me disable the auto-highlighting? I really don't want bracketed text to be dimmed, and while I've fixed it by artificially highlighting the brackets in my grouping, I can't change it in track titles and the like.

Thanks for your quick help in personal messages, Frank!

Another small thing: It'd be great if SimPlaylist could honour custom keyboard shortcuts... I have Backspace set to remove items from the playlist, because I'm using a Mac keyboard. It doesn't work in SimPlaylist, though, so I have to hit fn-delete (which simulates Windows Delete) to remove items, which is an awkward action.
Thanks!

Beta 4 out, thanks for all bug reports.

Maybe a bug? there's an unused space when using a group without images...

Intentional.

I had many functions assigned to keys without the use of modifiers (ctrl/shift/alt).

Single-letter keys are reserved for find as you type, which is now bound to the title column. Using them for shortcuts has been disrecommended since foobar2000 0.9.5 - the update even removed those back then.

Thanks for the info. I didn't know.

1) bug report
I have a shortcut assigned to shift+return (open containing folder) but all it does in simplaylist is playback the selected track.

2) suggestion
I know it's stupid and your answer's gonna be no. But what about making an (optional?) exception for the space key regarding the type-as-you-search feature. Since you do not see what you type, space is a rather rare character you're going to hit (assumingly) and i think the space key as a universal "pause/resume" key (without modifiers) is an unwritten standard among media players of any kind.

I tried changing my backspace-for-remove to shift-backspace, and that didn't work either - but like tg2k3 with space, I would frankly love an exception for backspace.
I don't use find-as-you-type and I've been using foobar since before 0.9.5 and am on the current beta now... Disrecommendation or not, I'd prefer to have my preferred shortcuts Just Work in whichever playlist-viewer I use: after all, the default playlist viewer hasn't actively banned those keyboard shortcuts.

Fn-delete (i.e. Fn-backspace) on a Mac keyboard is about as awkward as you can get (essentially left-ctrl + backspace, impossible with one hand!)
I've added "Win-backspace", which allows me to use Apple/command-backspace on the Mac keyboard to remove, but it's still inconvenient.

Bug report: ctrl-z doesn't work as expected.

When I remove a single track or set of tracks from the playlist (using delete or custom shortcuts), ctrl-z either does nothing, or undoes some other previous action (such as inserting a whole album in).
In the default playlist, if I remove tracks, I can undo step by step. It's a bit of a deal-breaker for me right now, sadly

Any way we could have the option to bind find as you type to other columns? I rarely want to quickly find a track title, but I'll often want to find a particular artist in a playlist.

Doubleclicking the statusbar still (beta4) jumps to the tab with the original foobar Playlist View and selects the song there, instead of in SimPlaylist where playback was started from.
The reason for keeping a tab with the original Playlist View is that SlimPlaylist doesnt allow vertical scrolling apparently. Displaying 30 columns without vertical scrolling is no fun.

Ctrl+Z / edit>undo not acting as expected for me either.

Again thanks for this component.

Hey,
Thanks for your new component. Just one feature request: Would it be possible to implement 0.5 star rating steps as an additional feature - so that there would be more difference in rating (just like in amarok). The stars just habe to be a little bit bigger. ;-)

I too would greatly appreciate the ability to force sort the playlist with a custom grouping pattern. Thank you for your work on this very promising component!

Grat component,thanks.

I have defined ctrl alt m as key command for moving files. In simplaylist this command does not work.


Cheers

[/list]Beta 3:
  • Glitch: >highlight< was used for selected items.

Aw man. I loved this "glitch". (I use highlight for now playing items, rather than the column).

Could you perhaps re-enable this behavior if a user is using the Aero selection?

Also, interesting observation: dimming still works with selected items. I suppose that's intentional, as only highlighting could be the selection color.

Nevermind.
I just wanted to see how the playlist look like.
But, it is more easy to download the file, install, restart foobar2000, add it to config. My bad.

@TomBarlow how did you get that third green grouping line (Disc 1 etc)?
could you post a screenshot of the config? Thanks.

Subgroups
Included in some [all] of the preinstalled grouping examples

From Docs
Quote
Subgroups
Subgroups are listed within the tracks next to group columns.
The default [Disc %discnumber%] subgroups are only displayed for albums with discnumbers.
The image size is the same as for headers.

hi frank,

very nice playlist-view, thx very much ;-).
this is what i search for, a native dui view with album-art..

only one feature request:
"autoscale columns with window size" is it possible to make this optional, as in the original playlist-view, to work with larger columns?

thx
phiber

I overlooked the possibility of multiple lines in Header and Subgroup, now I got it

Yes, it is quite cool. For me [Set %Set%]$if(%Set%,  <<%length%>>)  Gives me a nice breakout of live shows and set timings.
