Title: foo_infobox
Post by: /\/irana on 2003-10-19 10:33:08
I have written a small plugin for enhancing the fuction of show file info box.

Here is the screenshot
(http://pelit.koillismaa.fi/plugins/plugins/71/foo_infobox.png)

Edit1: copy the post on "Third-party plugins" thread
Component name - foo_infobox
Component type (appropriate section) - General
Which foobar2000 version the component works with - 0.7.1
Short description of the component - A substitute for the build-in file info box
Compile date - October 18, 2003
Download link - http://pelit.koillismaa.fi/plugins/general.php#8 (http://pelit.koillismaa.fi/plugins/general.php#8)
Screenshot link - foo_infobox.PNG (http://pelit.koillismaa.fi/plugins/plugins/71/foo_infobox.png)

 
Some explanation about "Override codepage" option:
If you check that option,then you can select any codepage installed in your system.foo_infobox will convert all meta tags from ANSI to UTF-8 using selected codepage,instead of using system default codepage.
It is useful for reading some tags not stroed in Unicode correctly.

Edit:updated download link to new version

Now this is a worthy replacement...

Well done.

Edit: After playing around with this new box, I can honestly say that this should be the next official info box for Foobar2000. Seriously, you should contact Peter and have him take a look at this.  Flexible and very functional. The ONLY thing I would ask to make it perfect is to make it resizeable and keep its size over many uses.

It's nice. Quite a bit more intuitive than the current one.

What do the options 'change focus' and 'follow cursor' do? Would they actually be relevant in the file info box?

Edit:
Answer: 'Change focus' synchronises the selected song in the playlist to the file displayed in the info box and 'Follow cursor' synchronises the file info box display to the song selected in the playlist. Yes, very relevant indeed.

Some of my files give an error when opening the "special" window.

If you are reading this, you should restart the program as soon as possible to avoid further trouble, and report this exact message to the developer.
ERROR (CORE) : error executing menu command: "Show file info (special)"

Don't know what could be the difference, but these files can be opened in text mode by  Total Commander and give ASCII-DOS charset mode in default, while the "good" files are ANSI-Windows by default.  I don't see any other differences, not even in the tag types, APEv2 and ID3v1 are present only in these files.

I Use WinXP SP1 if it's important.

EDIT: OK, encountered some other files with ID3v2 tags, and they give the same error. Maybe the other files once had ID3v2, which got stripped, don't know.
BTW, I use kode54's plugin to read ID3v2 tags, no writing to them , though.

Slight problem with the group boxes. (image (http://home.earthlink.net/~kode54/info.png))

Stretch the tops of both boxes up by one point and all is well. :B

EDIT: Hmm, from a bit of tweaking, I end up with the final positions/sizes of 205x119 at 3,29 and 153x158 at 212,29. Or, in resource code, sort of:

Code: [Select]
CONTROL "Standard meta fields", -1, BUTTON, BS_GROUPBOX | WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE, 3, 29, 205, 119
CONTROL "Technical info", -1, BUTTON, BS_GROUPBOX | WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE, 212, 29, 153, 158

@kode
Fixed and uploaded,thanks

@kalmark
I don't know what's the problem.In fact foo_infobox doesen't read tags from files directly.It load file info by querying the info from database,or asking database to reload info from file, then querying database
If you upload a file causing the error,I could look into it.

It seem there are many bugs in this plugin.
I haven't done many test.Now I don't have enough time to debug it and my code skill is very bad.
So try this plugin on your own risk.

Is there any way to sort meta fields [other] by display name (alphabetic)? I have a lot of personnal field, and finding the good one is not very fast with the actual sorting (physical, I suppose) system.

Title: foo_infobox
Post by: guruboolez on 2003-10-19 14:50:19
Small suggestion (but don't take this one in count if you don't find it useful for most people): a way to pop-up COMMENT field.
I've on some files a lot of informations, and the small defined box is too small for read them with comfort.
On some other files (opera for exemple), COMMENT field is heavily formatted, with tabs and large lines. For exemple :

Code: [Select]
                                  Mitridate, Re di Ponto
                                  Opera seria, K87/74a
         Libretto : Vittorio Amadeo Cigna-Santi, dalla tragedia di Jean Racine



Mitridate, re di Ponto........................................... Guiseppe Sabbatini
(King of Pontus – Roi du Pont)

Aspasia, promessa sposa di Mitridate............................. Natalie Dessay
(bethrothed to Mitridate – fiancée de Mithridate)

Sifare, figliuolo di Mitriate.................................... Cecilia Bartoli
(son of Mitridate – fils de Mithridate)


The small box of your nice component is just killing this formatting. Therefore, it would be nice for me to keep a way to pop-up some fields (at least the COMMENT one) with this component.

But don't feel obliged to do it: I can live with old tagging visualisation window, as long as foobar2000 will keep this last one.

Now it is resizeable.

I have added a button for comment,click it will popup a detail dialog.Hope this will fit your needed.
Title: foo_infobox
Post by: guruboolez on 2003-10-19 17:34:46
For me, it's perfect. Thank you very much.
There's maybe a better or simply complementary way to do it: add an option to allow the user to see ALL fields embedded in a file in "other meta" box. Therefore, if some people need to pop-up another common fields, they can do it.

But for my needs, your system is simply ingenious 


Some questions:
what mean "change focus" and "follow cursor" ?
And what is "override codepage" intended for ?
Thanks

Change focus: choose if when you click on "previous" or "next" in the file info box, the cursor moves or not in the playlist.
Follow cursor: choose if the informations in the file info box must be updated when the cursor is moved to another track in the playlist.

It's weird.I change nothing but one line about displaying the dialog.I think that code doesn't run when loading dll.
It seem only you have that problem.
Did all version can't be loaded,or only some of them?
I compressed the dll using upx.I don't know if this casue the problem.
I have uploaded a uncompressed dll (http://doc.hydrogenaudio.org/Members/N1rana/Folder.2003-10-18.4506/Folder.2003-10-18.5537/foo_infobox.zip).You can try it.

Add an dropdown listbox.Now you can choose how it work when clicking "previous" or "next' button,
save changes,don't save changes or popup a window prompting you

If you didn't like new version,you can download v1.2.6 from here (http://doc.hydrogenaudio.org/Members/N1rana/Folder.2003-10-18.4506/Folder.2003-10-18.5537/foo_infobox_1.2.6.zip)

Hmm,too many items in dialog

Thanks for this component /\/irana, it is a handy little extension to foobar2000.  However, I would have to agree with you here that the window is getting a bit busy.

Perhaps the Override Codepage, Change Focus, Follow Cursor and Prev & Next Mode boxes could be moved into their own page in the foobar2000 preferences dialog?  I would imagine most people would set these once and never need to see them again when they are actually using the infobox.

Just managed to crash infobox:

1. open info box, disable both "change focus" and "follow cursor"
2. remove all tracks from playlist (or change to "empty" tab)
3. enable "change focus"
4. try to enable "follow cursor" -> crash

Nothing big, since noone should use infobox on empty playlist, but the bug is there

Same here.  First link is NG.  It looks like a referer problem, i.e. you can't link directly from any page except the member's page.

Thanks again for the plug-in.

Thanks, too, especially for tag sorting: I really love it.

I just noticed a small difference between foo_infobox and the official one.
Fields name are not necessary showed in upper-case. For exemple, I have:

composer = Mozart
COMPOSITION = Concerto
etc...

with the official info box, same files informations are :
COMPOSER =
COMPOSITION =


This doesn't annoy me; feel free to correct it, or not

whoa, great plugin; foobar's default infobox blew me away in comparison to the ones i used before switching to foobar (mostly winamp- fav used to be the winamp ogg infobox), but this one takes the cake~ ^^

just some minor suggestions (using 1.3.1 with Foobar v0.7.2 beta 6):
+ whenever I first open the infobox, it always initially highlights the Title and Genre fields (although I can sorta see the point for Title, I don't see how it'd be useful for Genre) maybe bug?
+ maybe change the order of the fields a bit; it might be better to have the ordering follow what most taggers do (in this case, slightly moving Date, Genre, and Track), i.e.
Title _____
Artist _____
Album _____  Track _____
Date _____  Genre _____
Comment _____

+ stretch the Date field just a bit more. that way, dates entered in the form YYYY-MM-DD can be displayed entirely (again, if the date field moved with the Genre line instead of Album, then there would be more than enough space as the space for Genre isn't nearly as important as Album)

+ move the "edit", "add new", and "remove" buttons to the same line as the "Other meta fields". I don't think it'd hurt that much to make the default width just a bit longer so that it wouldn't cover the "Other meta fields" title, and even if you wanted to resize it smaller, just covering it wouldn't really hurt (the default foobar infobox does this, for example).

+ aw, I was kinda fond of the more-accurate display of the Length (i.e. 2:52.093 as opposed to 2:52). maybe it's just me though :p

+ some alternate space-saving naming:
> "Track number" -> "Track #" or just "Track" (I don't think anyone can confuse what "Track" is :p)
> "Undo change" -> "Undo" (really obvious)
> "Reload info from file" -> "Reload info" or "Reload" (I don't know about this one :p)

+ maybe change file size notations? ("MB" -> "MiB", "KByte" -> "KiB") <- again, I don't know about this. these abbreviations are the recent IEC standard (http://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Units/binary.html), but I haven't seen them used elsewhere besides BitTorrent tracker sites ;p

of course, everything's up to you. everyone else, feel free to post comments to the above suggestions.

keep up the great work! (and THANK YOU for the tag sorting <3) :D

Edit: SI -> IEC. sorry 'bout that :p (thanks to foosion for pointing that out)

It happens when you reload info from file, but not for all tags :
PERFORMER->PERFORMER
COMPOSER->Composer
LYRICS->Lyrics

I don't know if it's the same for everyone though.

Perhaps because they're not an SI but rather an IEC standard? At least the page you linked clearly says so:

It is important to recognize that the new prefixes for binary multiples are not part of the International System of Units (SI), the modern metric system.

v1.3.2

changes
-most of Silverbolt's suggestions have been applied,too lazy to list them all 
and thank you,Silverbolt
-added "multi-edit" button.
If you were using new 0.7.2beta,you could click this button to open new default "multiple items" file info box

Still haven't found a good webspace,so I uploaded it to doc.hydrogenaudio.org

What would be really useful (at least for me) is to have some kind of tabbed view over different tagtypes, like one for idv1,idv2 and apev2 tags, also to be able to add(?)/remove a certain type of tag(s) (i'de really like to strip off idv2 tags for example), sometimes i have a hard time keeping track of what tags contain what data

I did understand what you meant first time, just didn't explain properly in my response.  For me, both downloads work fine AND when either downloaded file is copied into my components folder foobar2000 starts successfully and the infobox displays correctly.

So the actual file must be OK, but getting corrupted on download for you.  Unless there is something about the file that fails on your OS or with your version of fb2k but works correctly on mine (Windows 2000 Server, fb2k 0.75 beta 1)

Found a very small bug (nitpicking really). Standard meta fields (Title, Artist, Album, etc.) have their field names saved in lowercase instead of uppercase. For example, if you view the tags in the default infobox, you'll see the Title field as "title" instead of "TITLE" (you'll need to double-click the field). This should be quite easy to fix (in fact, can even be done w/ a hex editor).

Also, how hard would it be to sort the technical info as well as the metadata fields? (Not really neccessary, I know, but just curious.)

Thanks! :]

im thinking that it would make a lot more sense and be a lot easier to use if there was only one context menu entry, like foobar default, that simply changed when multiple items were selected. like this:

what do you think? (i think this would be great/perfect)

there are easy ways around this issue.

Writing tags into files isn't foo_infobox's job.
Did you try kode54's id3v2 plugin (http://www.cqasys.com/projects/kode54/foo_id3v2.zip)?
Install this plugin and set tag type to id3v2(preferences->playbak->input->standard inputs),perhaps this could fix your problem.

@aron
I have read your suggestion.It isn't bad.
I think it isn't convenient to switch multiple/single mode by adding a option in preferences.I prefer to add a switch button in dialog window.
But..Hmm...I think the default multiple items file info box is good enough.And I'm too lazy to integrate it into foo_infobox. 
Perhaps I will add this feature in the future,who knows?

I have a similar problem. I want to type french accents in MP3, i'm running a Japanese OS. When I reload the files, accents are gone and replaced by other chars, and whatever encoding I use, the french chars are wrong.
I tried several configurations for foobar/id3v2 plugin/infobox plugin, and still wrong.

btw, why do encoding like "51949 (EUC-Korean)" appear 8 times in the encoding list ? is the "codepage" a per-file setting ? is there a SURE way to have different kinds of chars (french, arabian, japanese) ALL displayed correctly in the playlist ?

Suggestion :
- an "autoclose when finished" in the multi-edit window
- an option to launch by default multi-edit window if several files are selected, and the single one when only one file is selected (with the same shortcut). I tried assigning the 2 window to the same shortcut, it didn't work.
- a button to remove technical tags (is that even possible ?)
- a way to close the edit window by keyboard (enter or ctrl-enter...)
it would be nice to have a way to put in the clipboard, or parts of, the file name (since tags are usually presents in the filename)
Thanks for your great plugin btw, it's a long time i forgot the "original" info box.

ZYron probably meant some of the features, such as the Previous and Next buttons, as well as cursor following (maybe more). Using v0.8 beta 5 as well.

Thanks /\/irana,

worked great, but now again broken with 0.8b5 

Hopefully not every beta will need a recompile ;(

Ciao ZYron

I also hope so

Uploaded a new version compiled for SDK0.8b5

go to here (http://pelit.koillismaa.fi/plugins/general.php#8) to download a proper version you needed

@Lyx
perhapes you downloaded old version from the old link,check it again

Suggestion :
- an "autoclose when finished" in the multi-edit window

"multi-edit" button just open the default file info box,so I can't do anything about this
Quote
- an option to launch by default multi-edit window if several files are selected, and the single one when only one file is selected (with the same shortcut). I tried assigning the 2 window to the same shortcut, it didn't work.

now you must assign "single item" and "multi items" commands with different shortcut.I will add more option in new version(won't coming soon,because of waiting 0.8 final released  )
Quote
- a button to remove technical tags (is that even possible ?)

No,it's impossible.
Quote
- a way to close the edit window by keyboard (enter or ctrl-enter...)

If infobox window was active,you could press ALT+C or ESC to close it.I will add more keyboard shotcuts for control in the next version
Quote
it would be nice to have a way to put in the clipboard, or parts of, the file name (since tags are usually presents in the filename)

you could "select" and "copy" file name from Location editbox manually.Or edit copy command formatting string in config page(special file info box,not title formatting),using %_filename%,%_path%,etc.Then you could click "copy" button to put the info you needed into the clipboard.

Last,about your ID3v2 question.I don't know what's the problem.There are some threads discussion about foo_id3v2,searching and updating foo_id3v2.dll,hope it would be helpful

Thanks for the answers.
Any idea about the "korean encoding" duplication thing ?

sadly, I updated every component possible. Even on a French OS the files tags' accents appear bad, so I imagine something is wrong when the tag is written.
Yet it looks quite correct when I open the MP3 in a Hex Editor.

EDIT :
another suggestion : when you go in the "multi edit" window, it would be nice if it suggests (drop down)  various values. Like to easily get an Album or an Artist, correctly written, and to update it for all files.

Same pb. here, "follow cursor" and "prev/next" (when a single track is selected) don't work anymore.

A SMALL BUG / INCOSISTENCY:

Let file1 be the highlighted file. then select file2 without highlighting (only with frame around).
Now "properties" (choosen with "menu" key, mouse will highlight it) show properites of file1 and "show file info (special)" shows info about file2.

This is the intended behaviour, as highlighting is different from selecting.
Try ctrl+up/down arrow then <enter>.

edit: i read your post again and you're right. It means that foo_infobox behaves the right way.
Now,i ban myself for answering questions i don't read.

Request for infobox :
I had some difficult problems with weirdly encoded Tag, that infobox could display correctly via the "override codepage" option, whereas foobar itself don't have this option. the only correct way to re-write these tags correctly was to force foo_infobox to write the tag (like : add a space then remove it, then save). and then the tag was correctly UTF-8 encoded for foobar interface.
So my request would be to be able to do that for a batch of file :
select an overriding code page. and have the tags rewritten that way for the whole batch.

Anyhow, foo_infobox rulez, and it rules even more now that it can make me solve my encoding problems.

In fact,I have written a messtagger extension plugin for codepage conversion several months ago.Just didn't release it here.I have uploaded it to official 3rd plugin site here (http://pelit.koillismaa.fi/plugins/general.php#60)
It is a very old version(v1.0),but it should work well with both 0.7x and 0.8beta.

There is a new version v1.2,added simplified<->traditional Chinese conversion function.If you can't read Chinese,I think this new feature is useless for you.So I uploaded old v1.0.
You can get v1.2 from here (http://foobar.nease.net/download/foo_codepage_action_cn.zip)(only Chinese version,If somebody required a english version,I could compile it)

edit:
1.I have compliled a english version for v1.2 and uploaded it to official 3rd plugins site
2.I have posted a new thread for foo_codepage_action.If you have any question about this plugin,please post here (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?act=ST&f=27&t=18819).

I didn't know you were codepage_action author
I tried with that plugin actually, so I selected "8859-1 Latin" instead of "Shift JIS", but i couldn't get a correct result.
I only got a correct result by selecting "override codepage" to "shift jis", then force infobox to save.

(i tried both direction, with codepage_action : 8859 -> shift jis and shift jis -> 8859, and it only screwed the tags)

What OS you used?
There are two codepage selections
"using codepage", should be set to the codepage used by encoding tags in your files
"instead of codpage", should be set to your default OS codepage
It should work for you if foo_infobox works well."override codepage" just convert tags using selected codepage instead of default OS codepage.So it can't perform "undo"
You could undo changes by exchange two selctions in foo_codepage_action(don't succeed in some case)
But I admit it is confused how to chose right codepage.

I think it is just a problem of choice,I selected focus and peter selected highlight.Both are ok.
But there was a bug in my plugin about this,it could cause a crash that has been reported here (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=18780&)
I have fixed it in v1.3.6a.Now it act same as the buildin "properties" command.Highlight is prior to focus.

Another (now) useless post (though i hope relevant), but I tried to make things clear in my mind.

- 1 track focused and 1 track highlighted -> file info (single item) of the focused track
but
- 1 track focused and several tracks highlighted -> file info (single item) of the 1st highlighted track
and moreover
- 1 track focused and several tracks highlighted -> file info (mutiple item) of the highlighted tracks.

So, 1st two points were incoherent and last point imposes the way of doing things properly.

Thanks again for creating and maintaining this essential plugin irana.

great plugin.

I have feat. requests:
statistical info in multiple files view: average bitrate (bytes total /time total*0.008), average file size, etc.

and when in multiple files mode editing fields "(varies/unchanged)" could be by default filled with list of values the files have. This way for example you could make whole album have same album name just by deleting one or more lines. no c&p neccessary.

hmm...but...
In fact multiple items mode of foo_infobox just calls the default "properties" command.I am too lazy to duplicate this fuction in foo_infobox.I might perform this by myself in the future,so I could add more feature in multiple items mode.But not recently,I'm too busy now.sorry

Title: foo_infobox
Post by: Zurman on 2004-05-21 16:19:18
Great plugin - I love it.

How about introducing other "almost standard" tags, such as rating, performer, lyrics ?

We could discuss here which ones to add. Maybe they could be activated or not?

(Personnally I would also love to have a "style" tag next to "genre", in which I put something more accurate than what I put in genre, eg genre = classical, style = romantic)

Just an idea though

Hello,

first thank you for this very useful component.

I have found a little issue when used in combination with the user interface module columns_ui (versions are f2k 0.8.3, columns_ui 0.1.2 alpha 4, infobox 1.3.7):

Add some tracks into a playlist, choose a single track and enter the special file info properties. Make sure 'Follow cursor' is selected. Give the foobar-main window the focus, and use the cursor up/down keys for choosing another track. The special file info box does not recognize the first press and comes out of sync with the track selected by the cursor in foobars playlist.


I do not know if this is an issue of columns_ui or the infobox.
Used with the default user interface however I can't reproduce this issue.


Regards
Christoph

Hi,
I have a little request if you could possibly compile a version for me and anyone else if they use this. I don't really use "Genre", and I'd like it to be replaced with "Featuring" ( a tag I use ).  If this is possible at all, please let me know, and thanks for the GREAT component.

- A different colour for tags that are writen in the database (i.e. green) instead of in the file itself.

- A checkbox for enable/disable 'block tag updates'.

I agree with you,file info panel is a good idea
IMO it should be a individual plugin instead of embedded in foo_infobox
and it is not enough that just move foo_infobox dialog into a Columns_UI panel simply
It is better to make a totally new one which is like the info panel of foo_tunes
But I don't have time and motive to write a new plugin for this now,sorry
Hope other developers,that are interest in this,will write one someday

It would be nice and most useful, if we could have all the fields (or just the user chosen ones) showed like boxes as the standard ones in the upper side of the window. This would let us  input values in many different fields with just a couple of clicks: one to open the window and the other to save and clos it.

As it is now we have to double click on each field in order to edit it, and click again to close it. With many fields and 5000 tracks on the desk ready to be properly tagged, it would be very useful.

Thanks for listening.

Can we also have the fields correctly sorted also in the multi files view?

And can we have the drop down list of the genre build the list from the values in the db instead the one that shows now?

If is it possible, can we have that feature also on other fields and also in multi files view?

Sorry for so many requests but your plugin is such a central feature...

Sorry that this is a little off-topic, but recently I've found a need to add some codepage-conversion code to a project. Do you have any tips, or links to docs?  Various APIs include prebuilt tools for converting to the system codepage, but I'd like to be able to force a particular codepage, the way you do in this plugin. I figured it couldn't hurt to ask someone who clearly already knows how.

When you select multiple tracks, right-click and choose "properties," click on the "..." button next to "remove."  You'll see an option for "input per-track values," where you can enter one value per line and it will tag it for you.  You can also use "auto track number" from the "..." menu.

One other alternative is provided by the latest foo_ui_columns, which allows for directly editing tags in the playlist window.

You could even argue that that's easier than the infobox, just because it requires one click instead of three  (click on the field, make change, enter vs. right click, properties, make change, apply changes)

It's the field you want to edit. So your artist column would have ARTIST, your album column would have ALBUM, and so on. To use it, click once on a track, then click once on the item you want changed. BTW, it's the exact same behavior as renaming files in Windows...

Yeah, that's what I tried first--to no avail. However I figured it out at last. Somehow the "click once on a track, click once on the item you want changed" way didn't work for me--probably due to the string I'm using that has multiple values for one metafield. Had to make use of the F2 shortcut and it works like a charm now.

*Later*: no, not like a charm. When I press F2, only the first column becomes editable. Argh. Guess I'll be waiting for foo_infobox to be ported.....

Are you waiting a little bit after clicking on the field? You have to wait a little less than a second for the textbox to appear. Title Formatting shouldn't have anything to do with it, just what's in the metadata box and where that particular column is placed.

Also, if you do use F2, you can always use Tab to move between different fields...

Still no luck. Sure thing I wait after clicking on the field but nothing happens. Perhaps my clicking skills are all screwed up, huh?  Or, more probably, this feature is string dependable and/or buggy.....

In regard to using Tab to move to the next field--ah yes, indeed it does the trick. Actually, I read the Column UI Wiki but seemed to skip that. Many thanks.

Works here.

Are you sure "mouse inline metafield editing" in playlist view preferences tab is enabled (Columns UI or Windows)?

I tried disabling it and then only F2 worked; enabling it and "edit on second late click"... keeps working again.

I just downloaded the updated foo_infobox extension from the components (http://pelit.koillismaa.fi/plugins/) site. Am I the first to see it?

Download it here (http://gro.clinux.org/projects/ikiki/).

IMO this should be the default tag editor in foobar. It's so useful, and the default editor is nowhere close.
Title: foo_infobox
Post by: fabiospark on 2006-03-28 20:37:38
Yes, it's it and it works!.

Thanks.

I wonder if we will ever have the way to show also our custom tags in text boxes, maybe being able to define a tab sequence or the order to show them.
Thinking of multi value fields, as in a single selection they are shown as different instances with the same tag name, I wonder if we will ever be able to define a "sorting list" to show them. Something as Excels lists (months, day of the week etc). Or better, if we we'll be able to change their sorting position moving them around (up/down).

Anyway, thanks for porting it.

I love this new inline editing and it almost makes up for the info tool but I don't like how it doesn't display the existing tag content for editing, when you edit within the columns ui playlist.  When the field becomes editable, it also becomes blank.  I think it would be really easy to copy the text out of the field and start the new field that way, so why don't they, and if they have, how do you switch to that or do that?

bug in genre box. shows "progressive" as "progressive rock" on 0.9

Post by: Shade[ST] on 2006-03-28 22:09:51
Bug list :

*  non-ID3v1 Genres not supported (Would like to add "Chanson Française" as a genre, and many custom others.)
*  Save and close feature not yet implemented (?) or not working in it's implementation.  IMO, this is a very important feature, as it allows you to go directly to the next song in a single click instead of two.

Also, TOTALTRACKS is now a standard tag in foobar2000 0.9 : as such, it should be located right beside the tracknumber, after a slash, maybe (# 01/15 )

I also think Performer and Composer should have dedicated text boxes.

Multiple-field separator changed to '\' as FB2K used.


Please:

- check the '\' because I can see in your panel that multi values info are shown with the '/' separator and not the '\'.

- state again which is the char we have to use for multi values fields (to avoid confusion).


Do you think you can do something to solve the old inconsistency issue about '/' separator working with a multi files selection and not working with a single file selection?

thanks.

Hi Bluenet,

Thanks for the update! I was wondering if you had plans to to fix or upgrade the "File Info / details" box? The "Field name:" box does not produce any fields when you click on the "arrow down" button.

Also, any chance to get the 'Save Previous" and "Save Next" buttons back?

Again, many thanks for making this plug-in available for v0.9.
Title: foo_infobox
Post by: Schinkentoni on 2006-04-09 22:22:54
bluenet, thank you very much for updating this component.
Although I would prefer to have all the file infos in the lower right (like length and subsong index) + to have the filesize silhouetted against the technical infos as it is done in /\/iranas screenshot above.
And a 'displaying' option in preferences with checkboxes for e.g. "display change focus and follow cursor", "display override codepage" as it is in 0.8.3.
.....well, reflecting everything, the appearance of /\/iranas version is perfect....
Sorry, no offense, these are just my suggestions, but I still greatly appreciate your efforts, don't get me wrong here

Post by: JoyO on 2006-04-10 15:28:35
- if we edit tags in external program Reload Info button doesnt work. It has to be done through tagging>reload info from files.
- as said, "Save Previous" and "Save Next" would be very nice
- add new > and no tag list to choose from ("field name:")
Title: foo_infobox
Post by: TrNSZ on 2006-05-15 03:54:45
I have reproducable crashes with foo_infobox 2.0.1 with latest foobar2000.  It wasn't very easy to track down. 

Minimal test case known to work every time (verified with fb2k 0.9.2b2, infobox 2.0.1):

1. Add a corrupted wavpack file (dd if=/dev/random of=breakme.wv bs=8192 count=32 or whatever, any garbage named .wv would probably work) to the playlist.  Dismiss the error dialog box.  Add the corrupted file to the playlist again, and dismiss the dialog box again.

2. Use Context Menu -> "File Info" on the first playlist entry (the first `bad` file).  Close the File Info dialog, answer "No" if it asks you to save tags.

3. Add a good wavpack file to the playlist.  foobar2000 will either hang forever at this point ("Abort" box is non-functional) or crash. 

This has been tested on 3 different configurations.  This plug-in is really only somewhat useful for viewing tags, but not much for actually modifying tags when using the keyboard, requiring lots of user visual concentration from the user, such as when tabbing around the fields.  Once you get used to it, the default editor is much faster and inherently more extensible.  If you limit yourself to only using the mouse, you are really missing out on how great the built-in "Properties" functionality is.

The one thing this plug-in does better than the built-in functionality is that it it provides a quick way to scroll through a playlist to examine ReplayGain data (avoiding additional title-formatting).  It would be unfortunate to lose this functionality, and I hope this bug can be fixed. 

Another obvious problem is attempting to reload the tag data using the "Reload Info" button does not work, but this seems to be mentioned before in this thread.

Edit: Spelling.

This is a suggestion I'd like to throw out there, if you dont like it fire away. I would like to see the option to "lock" a field from one song to the next.

This way I can load up File Info on SongA, type in the tag information, then if I could "lock" (click on the tag name as a toggle perhaps) fields my songs have in common such as artist, album title, etc.. I would then be able to save the tag, click on next, and those "locked" fields would automatically populate when I load SongB and I'd only need to enter the song title and track number.

I used to use a program called MediaTagger which allowed me to do this but I have since moved completely to foobar and miss this functionality.

Correct me if i'm wrong but that sounds like unnecessary options-bloat to me, because the same can be done more intuitively by selecting multiple songs, and then editing the common fields of them. Thats where the standard-dialog is better suited than foo_infobox.
Title: foo_infobox
Post by: Yotsuya on 2006-05-15 04:56:53
That is the method I currently use, however that method requires a user to work with the raw tag list instead of the convenient infobox fields.  If what I asked for is too much "bloat" then could someone perhaps suggest a better approach to manipulating multiple songs with the benefit of the infobox formatting? I'm not talking about big massive collection tagging, but just one album at a time as you rip or leech them.

Don't know if it has been suggested before, but the plugin is lacking a feature which 0.83 box had:

"save and next" "save and prev."

Very often I have albums where I have to edit the title tags of all tracks. What I did was edit the title, then "save and next"... Now I have to click "update", then "next".

I see, this has been asked before. I want to emphasize it's importance.

Regarding Yotsuya's problem, maybe that's something that could better be addressed in the 'default' tagger dialogue? Like instead of

Your second solution wouldn't be effective, because all tags are not on all files, and some people use different types of tags / non-standard ones.

I think he was suggesting:

1)  to have a box for each tag instead of listing each of them just as a line of text, regardless if it is a standard or a custom one

2)  to have the boxes with a multi files selection too

3)  to have a box even when the "various/unchanged" text is shown

4)  and, above all, to be able to easily edit or replace the text in the boxes as they usually allow you, instead of the lot of clicks we now have to use to edit a couple of fields.

5)  The icing on the cake would be the support of the multi values separator and to have it working for both a multi and a single file selection. (This is a known inconsistency in the standard properties window too).

The latest 2.0.2 does not fix this problem.  It is the same issue as I reported earlier in this previous post (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?s=&showtopic=14334&view=findpost&p=392518).


Can you post a crash log? And lav-chan, please.

I haven't gotten the crash in awhile, but the lockup is reproducable.  I posted full details in this topic already, over here (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=14334&st=160&p=392518&#entry392518).

First of all, great plugin!But I couldn't fail to notice that it does not obey the setting on the "Advanced" tab. That is, if I set to update only ID3V2, it updates also ID3V1 regarless of this setting.
I think the same applies to the generic masstagger. If I set to update only ID3V2 and make it write a Genre, that does not exist in ID3V1, it updates the ID3V2 genre, but DELETES!!! the ID3V1 one. This is very annoying. I hope this is just a bug that will be fixed soon, it is not so "by design". In that case the settings are useless.

It would be also a good idea, to put a little control on this dialog of fileinfo which would allow me to select which tags to update (ID3V1, ID3V2, or both). Practically te same as on the advanced tab, so it would be easier to set.

First of all, great plugin!But I couldn't fail to notice that it does not obey the setting on the "Advanced" tab.
I don't think this component uses its own tagging routines, so it has no choice but to obey those settings, although it seems you do not understand them.

That is, if I set to update only ID3V2, it updates also ID3V1 regarless of this setting.
What you select on the Advanced settings page is the preferred tagging scheme for untagged MP3 files. On already tagged files, foobar2000 updates all the tags it reads.

I think the same applies to the generic masstagger. If I set to update only ID3V2 and make it write a Genre, that does not exist in ID3V1, it updates the ID3V2 genre, but DELETES!!! the ID3V1 one. This is very annoying. I hope this is just a bug that will be fixed soon, it is not so "by design". In that case the settings are useless.
Again, the preferred tagging scheme does not limit which tags are updated, and the masstagger uses the standard tag update mechanism.

Why not just encode a second or two of silence to a wavpack file with fb2k?  The support is builtin, you just need to supply the wavpack encoder.  I'm not sure if there are other ways to trigger the problem, I've not looked further into it.

Sorry, I was absent.

It's probably not a wavpack problem, but rather a display bug when having ultra long tags. It's the "review"-tag here. I've uploaded a 0.5s (30 kByte) file with the exact tags, you'll reproduce it.

Slightly different here: Instead of overlaying characters, there are no characters at all. Just an empty, yet clickable line.

Er, apparently it's not alive anymore.  Seems that gro.clinux.org is down in general.  Does anyone have a mirror of the latest version of foo_infobox?  Having a tough time finding it.

(it should be a standard component, imo -- extremely useful!)

Looks like I posted too soon; this appears to be a connectivity issue with my provider.  My apologies.

I managed to access the download page through a proxy if anyone else is having a similar issue:

Found a crash bug in this!

With Foobar 0.9.3 and foo_infobox 2.0.3 and change focus checked, there is a potential for more than one "save changes?" confirmation dialog to appear, which causes foobar to then crash.

Example: Make changes, hit next, song that is currently playing ends and new snog starts. Focus of infobox changes and a new "save changes" confirmation is presented. Clicking yes, no, cancel causes crash in foobar.

I've had this happen to me several times. Very annoying.

Hi!

I'm planning to make a tagging panel (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=47638&pid=426301&st=0&#entry426301).

As this will be my first c++ code, it would be great if someone could send me the sourcecode of this component. This would really make things easier for me

Will this bug ever get fixed? Hope this component is not dead, i like it more than the default info-box. :/
Also i have a different crash-bug on this one. For me the "Save changes?" box is not even showing up when i edit the tags of a file, DONT save them and just click on the next song so it changes focus. Its crashing then right away and giving me a "Unhandled exception: Invalid nested modal call" error. This one is really annoying since it's always crashing in the wrong moments. :/

Oh and here is the requested download link for the "latest" version i could get:

it's strange but from the certain time instead of File Info Box on multiply files ("File Info" in context menu) appears standard properties/metadata dialog. is it a bug? or how can i edit multiply files with File Info Box?

Matyas,

ok, thanks for your reply. is there any explanations of that?
Title: foo_infobox
Post by: Matyas on 2006-09-24 10:58:15
@mercury: sorry for the sparse answer.
As I see it, infobox was desiged to ease the tagging of single files, with the possibility of navigating between files easily (AutoSave, Next, Prev buttons). However, it was not designed to handle multifile-tagging at once, therefore anytime you select more than 1 file and call infobox, the standard properties dialog is displayed which handles this situation well and very effectvely using the scripts.

First, is bug tracking at GRO site for this project actually used? All bugs I see there are open and untouched.

Now for report:
1. I use "override code page" often, but when I try to process several tracks with it using prev/next, but every time I click it, "Update" is grayed out, because plugin thinks there are no changes, even with "override" in effect.
2. infobox works incorrectly with .cue files: for some reason it removes some strings, like top level TITLE tag and it also saves re-encoded performers/titles incorrectly, encoding all symbols outside current locale with "?". Names appear in playlist as they were re-encoded correctly, but they change to "?" next time .cue is reread (which happens on pretty much any operation from playing track to editing another track in same .cue).

It has been updated to 2.0.4, you can get it at the usual place (http://gro.clinux.org/projects/ikiki/), don't know if all the bugs have been fixed yet though.

Hi,  I copied foo_infobox.dll v204 (foobar 0.9.4.1) to the components directory and it appears in the Properties -> Components panel. What do I have to do to use it? I cannot add it to the Context Menu because there is no component "Special File Info"..

What am I missing?

Thanks,
Alex

As far as i know it is just called "file info" in the context menu. and the original file info is called "properties".
"file info" just works on single files.
as soon as you select it in multiple files, the normal properties box will pop up.
so you do not need "properties" in the context menu anymore.

Indeed.

so you do not need "properties" in the context menu anymore.

In foobar 0.8.3 I have "Show file info (special) Single item" for a single file and "Show file info (special) Multiple items". Is there a way to have the "Multiple items" menu item back? It has been the most used window for bulk editing mp3s - much easier to use than the Masstagger for some simple operations.

Thanks!
Alex

I just realised that the default Properties window can be use much like "Show file info (special) Multiple items". Still, what happend to the latter?

Please change to the default seperator to a semicolon in the next version. I've seen several threads where it has caused confusion.

I seem to recall, in foobar 0.8.3 special, the infobox that was included with that could edit multiple tracks at once - I wish it still did, I miss it. I hate the default infobox. Also, words of encouragement for the author of this component: I hope you keep at this component, or release the source code if you don't intend to maintain it anymore...
Title: foo_infobox
Post by: Slotos on 2007-01-12 08:19:57
nago, as far as I remember infobox for 0.8.3 is just passing multiple selection to default trackinfo window. The same does the 0.9.x one.

Anyone in touch with the developer and know if this is gonna be updated anytime? I can't use Foobar on Vista cause this causes it crash.  And it's one of the best plugins out there.
