Timebomb on: After 30 min the playback stops with a popup message. This is useful, if you have limited session time. Set time to 1 min in the Advanced Preferences to test.

Hello! Thank you for this useful plugin. I have just one minor oversight to report. When you activate the Timebomb2 component using a button on the toolbar, it doesn't show as active; you need to check a menu to see if it is active or not. Screenshots included. It would be useful to see if the timer is active at a glance with an activated button.

I looked at the console and saw Timebomb in 60 minutes, then Timebomb aborted.

However, I think there has been a misunderstanding. In the second screenshot, you can see a checkmark next to "Timebomb" which disappears when it is deactivated. In the same screenshot, you can see a checkmark next to Skip Tracks, which is another component, and in the first screenshot the button is showing when that one is active. I don't need to see a timer/countdown or anything complicated like that; I would just like to be able to see if Timebomb is active-like if the menu item has a checkmark or not-but without having to bring up the console or open the menu. I want to see it on the button like the other components do, since I often listen at a distance from my PC. Since the menu item has a checkmark just like the other components, it seems like there would be a way to do it, however I myself do not know how your component coded and I will accept it if you still say this is impossible. I just wanted to make sure any misunderstanding was cleared up before giving up on it. Thank you again for the component.

Well a checkmark on a menu is nothing a push button indicator. When you click a menu, you're essentially querying a variable on demand which is super easy. You don't have to know or care about its state at any other moment in time.

A button is "live" and must respond to state changes. It's easy for things built in to fb2k like stop after current etc because the SDK provides the functionality. It's not so easy for 3rd parties to implement their own. It's obviously possible given that foo_skip supports it but then Case is one of the most knowledgable devs around with regards to the inner workings of the SDK.
