1. What is the "Source mode" in Preferences -> Playback -> ReplayGain?
2. Do you use Replaygain override plugin?
It doesn't seem it would be that difficult to add a value such as "%replaygain_mode%" to foobar's title formatting, but maybe it is.
What doesn't make sense is that there is no way to visually verify what mode replaygain is being used in without opening Preferences. ...It makes no difference whether it is a track property.
Your last sentence is totally wrong: title formattings purpose is to use and process information from the track - therefore the name: title formatting!
To me, displaying the replaygain mode in the status bar would be perfectly acceptable
however, I wouldn't want to force people to display the status bar simply because they want this feature.
The questions are whether that is what the majority of users would want and what they'd want to be displayed, but that could be fleshed out in a feature request. I'll wait a short while to see if the thread receives any more feedback from tagtypedisplay before I post the request.
some suggestions for RG selection and display;A small toolbar like the "order" toolbar which can be placed on the main toolbar.create %rg_mode% which can be used by the user at will
I agree that the toolbar is a great idea, but I also like the your idea of displaying the mode in the status bar. I can see many users utilizing one or both methods. If you had to choose between them, which would you rather have - the toolbar or the status bar display?
