Playlist highLight and Time lapse code?
Hi to all,
I'm using Foobar2000 as a simple drag a drop audio player for some time and is great but I'm missing some useful info that probably is very easy to add for people that know code.

I just need the info of the playlist duration and if possible the ending time prediction based on my system time clock
Other thing would be to highlight the music that is playing instead of the playing tab info.

I've been playing around with the Playback state display formatting at the status bar code in the Default user interface of the Display preferences but can't seem to make it work.
Could anyone help me out with this please???

thanks a lot for the help
Vasco

Sorry, title formatting scripts do not get access to information which requires processing the entire playlist. You will notice that the Default (and I think also Columns) UI module(s) have optional status bar displays for both total time and volume. The total time display will count either the current selection, or the current playlist. Either optional display may be enabled by activating the status bar's context menu, usually with a right click.

Formatting information from multiple tracks into a single track display line will never be available, at least not for the playlist. Nobody wants O(n^2) going on there.

Hi,
So showing the total time of a playlist or the remaining time of a playlist will never be available !!! in a media player that is proud to say it can be full customized !!!
Strange... but thanks for the feedback

best regards

That's not the same thing.

What is says is that generic user-writable scripts that operate on the entire set of items in a playlist will not be available.

What's displayed in the status bar works essentially the same as any single item in a playlist, so functions that operate on the entire playlist would incur incredible processing overhead.

You can always right-click the status bar and enable Show Total Time of Selection, though that's not precisely what you're looking for.
