What other technology would you have used for text output with colors, fonts

I posted about this before in your other thread...

https://jscript-panel.github.io/gallery/text-display/

Obviously I didn't mention the implementation back then but I use IDWriteTextLayout and DWRITE_TEXT_RANGE for applying colours and fonts to substrings of a string.

To make it ridiculously easy for the end user, I support $rgb title formatting in my component scripts**. This is native to fb2k. I then have my own custom $font function. To implement that, use titleformat_hook from the SDK. It's an extra arg for the usual format_title methods.

** edited for correctness: my component doesn't support $rgb as such. I parse it with javascript.

This screenshot I posted in your other thread is an example of how to use it...



Not as powerful as CSS but somewhat easier for the average user.

No one has to know a single bit of javascript/CSS or know anything about callbacks, All that is managed by me.

I.e. because the application is attached to the browser it will not work add in window "Text Visualizer" streaks/strips with: slider playback and slider volume? And what about transparency?
There are 3 technology domains in play: web browsing, scripting, and content rendering with colors, fonts and layout. I re-used the engine of the Chrome and Edge (and possibly other) browsers for the last domain (text rendering) and coupled it with a small interface to fb2k information. You get the other 2 as a package deal.

What you do with those technologies is your choice. I don't have the intention, time and skills (in that order) to create eye candy user interfaces.

But it's a public forum so maybe another user can help you.

But that's pgyt's fault for gluing a browser into the component. It's sad to see everything turning into Electron app or a browser-powered monster.
'Fault' is a rather strong word in this context. What other technology would you have used for text output with colors, fonts and layouts? I merely intended to re-use the power of CSS. What I didn't expect is that people would focus on the JavaScript possibilities.

Case i not listing *.ape.
If you like a song and want to duplicate it in a playlist, just add the same track multiple times to a playlist.
It's tedious to do this with dozens of files. And why You not allow multiple *.lnk's to be stored in the one/same folder with target file? It's a pain/torment to create for every file *.apl file and yet through a text-based (*.txt). Please anblock this plugin on dublicats.

General Audio / Re: Cutoff frequencies of lossy codecs
Last post by Klymins -
a higher cutoff frequency means more black space in the frequency area

What?

He means the almost always guaranteed huge emptiness in a spectrogram due to absolutely nothing anyone would listen to having high frequency data.
But it's kind of the reverse, the higher the cutoff, the less pure black. But that depends on your spectrogram's parameters. If you turn the sensitivity down all the blue/purple there would be black too.

It is the reverse of what he is saying.  Raising the cutoff means more frequencies get through, not less. 


A higher cutoff frequency means more black space below the cutoff frequency, and black spaces those below the cutoff frequency are much easier to detect than black spaces those above the cutoff frequency.

Not sure pgyt understands what you are even asking, but I have the impression that people are abusing his text output tool for things it was never meant for. If your baby is abused you are not very keen on helping people abuse it further.

But that's pgyt's fault for gluing a browser into the component. It's sad to see everything turning into Electron app or a browser-powered monster.
