BPM Viewing On Main Dashboard Possible?

How do I make the BPM (Beats Per Minutes) plug-in always show/appear within FooBar2000 main dashboard; is that possible?  Please provide easy step-by-step directions.  Thanks A Million.

I did a search here at this forum ……and after reading I am not sure this possible.  Is it possible?

Is there such software available? (Yes I am aware of Serato Software).

If not; Foobar2000 coders (or coders) please get to work for us DJ's or otherwise. ;)   Thanks.

In what form do you want to exactly show that BPM? Where, in which place? I created myself a custom column named BPM with code $meta(BPM) (Preferences / Display / Default User Interface / Playlist View) . Of course in my case in plugin config I have chosen to write BPM values to tag called simply BPM. If you call it TEMPO you just replace my BPM with TEMPO in code for column. You can try use also %bpm% or %tempo% but I am not sure if it will work or not. Reading tags (function $meta( ) will always work. You can put it also into your status bar or window title bar (Preferences / Display / Default User Interface / fields "Window title", and "Status bar").

But if you want just that manual tap button to be visible all the time, then I am afraid that you have no option to do that. Easiest way to access it would be to bind a keybaord shortcut to appear that button on request or to bind kb shortcut to execute automatic BPM calculation process (Preferences / Keyboard shortcuts, look for "[context] / BPM Detection" and its subsequent commands).

Remember that in Preferences / Display / Context Menu you can also edit commands that you have under right mouse button (choose them with checkboxes). You can remove those unnecessary for you and keep there only functions like manual and automatic BPM calculation (section "BPM Detection)...

I would need for it to show within FooBar2000 continuously for BPM organization.  I have over 10,000 songs within my library.
