Can you please make changing volume with mouse wheel (when pointer is over DeskBand Controls) not affect other programs including foobar2000?
When I do that I usually scroll whatever is opened with no intention of doing that.

Hello eldarien,

sorry for the delay...

fuffi - please share your config (located in %AppData%\Roaming\DeskbandControls\ and also image that is causing problems ( I assume this is some album art).
Next time I'm near the computer, I will try to get the settings.

I've got 7 .json files in this folder. How do I find the one, which is used by DBC ?

Hi eldarien,

another two questions :-)

1)
When I'm moving the mousepointer over the DBC on the taskbar, I always have a lag of 500ms to 2seconds. While this lag, the mousepointer freezes inside the DBC toolbar and then, suddenly, pops up somewhere else on the taskbar.

This is very irritating and inconvenient, because I use a vertical taskbar and have to move over the DBC toolbar to reach some of the systray icons. So the mouse moves very often over the DBC, without me wanting to react :-)
(Therefore I have set up the "Tooltip Show Delay" to 1500)

Is there a way/setting to have DBC behave less "realtime" so the lag will be minimized in time?

2)
I have a nocover image set up.
I recognize, when playing a song (with embedded albumart) and it switches to the next song of the same album, the nocover image is shortly shown. even if the album/song has coverart, the nocover image is shown a very short time. then, the albumart is shown.

Can you tell me, if there is a setting to have DBC not to show the nocover image that fast, but wait, if the next song has a coverart?

Not a deskband issue. You can test by scrolling when hovering over start button for example...

Not yet. But I see what you mean.

Thank you for your work/help/time!!

btw: I nailed down some songs, on which the MS Framework Errors occoured, but thats not reproduceable.
So with just listening to music, the errors popped up a lot of time, but when I tried to play that songs again, no error popped up... murphy....

btw²: some errors occured, when I moved a program window from monitor1 to monitor2 and while a song changed to another, but that could also be a random incident ....

btw³: yeah, the errors pop up mostly, when foobar2000 switches to the next song.

(cannot edit my post....,But I did find a way to reproduce the error.)

I use the Preview (foo_preview v1.4) component for previewing songs.
(Settings: Start from 35, Length 55 %, Stream Lenght 100)

"Normal" behaviour in f2k (without the MS Framework error):
When a Song is starting, then the component skips the song to the configured starting position and continues playing. After the song reached the length (configured in the config of the component as above) f2k jumps to the next song, and again, skips to the configured starting position....

When the "Problem" occours, it happens like that:
a playing song reaches its end, f2k jumps to the next song, MS Framework error pops up, song plays just as normal, as with no preview-component installed/active.
When I click on "Continue" button, of the Error popup, the component *then* skips to the configured starting position and plays the song as usual.

Also, unfortunately, if I deactivate the Preview function via f2k-Menu->Playback->Preview Mode
the Framework Error also pops up, when a new song is starting...

Maybe that helps to reproduce it... (hopefully) :-)

Can you please make changing volume with mouse wheel (when pointer is over DeskBand Controls) not affect other programs including foobar2000?
Not a deskband issue. You can test by scrolling when hovering over start button for example...

OK! Fair enough but can you make Deskband Controls bring back focus to whatever it was on before after I right click on Deskband Controls toolbar and choose something like Stop after current from context menu?
Clicking on any Deskband Controls toolbar buttons (stop, play, next) doesn't take away focus from whatever it was on, so I thought it would be great if selecting something from context menu (right click) also didn't take away focus from what it was on before right clicking on Deskband Controls toolbar.

Thank you,
the changelog sounds great!
Link detection works nice! Its now so simple to check out the, i.e. WWW-tag or discoGS information!

However,
  * Version 3.5.0
  - Fixed stub image appearing for a moment when switching tracks.
that seems not to be changed.
When I'm skipping a song (from within the default f2k control button: next) the stub image is shown for about 500ms.

I've tested with old path to the stub E:\m\p\f2k\foo_httpcontrol_data\kevo\nocover.jpg
and also a new relative oath: .\foo_httpcontrol_data\kevo\nocover.jpg

So it takes over 500ms to skip to the next song on your setup?
I've set the delay to 200ms... I guess I just make this delay configurable to be able to handle slower setups.

You are right. Its shorter than 500ms. About 200ms as you said. Sometimes its longer, sometimes even shorter.
I recorded a video.
23102017_1219_56.avi

The first skips are from the f2k controlbutton 'next' button (with activated component foo_preview).
Then from the f2k controlbutton 'next' button with deactivated component foo_preview.
Then I used the buttons from DBC.

You see the stub image very good 8-)

Probably dumb but with the new version right clicking taskbar > toolbars doensn't show "deskband controls". Isn't it supposed to be all automatic now?

edit: as soon as I posted this I remembered that I didn't run foobar as administrator, hope this helps others :D

eldarien thanks for plugin!

little tip, maybe you will be interested.
we do have mouse volume control on panel hovering already, but what about playback buttons hotkeys on hovering too? (middle button for play/pause, x button for next song for example).

Hi.
You can install it the same way as any other plugin - download it from offical repository and double-click or go to components page in foobar2000 preferences and click "Install" button there.

There is a readme.txt in the C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000\user-components\foo_deskband_controls\ directory.
Also you were given instructions in the installer (green text).
Right-click it when it is visible (when playing) and select settings.

Hi!

I'm a new user of deskband and I have to say, it's exactly what I need. Is it possible to make the deskband visible even when the music from foobar2000 is paused? The band just disappears when I hit pause from the bar.

Edit: never mind, I found the specific setting.

Deskband is exactly what I need, unfortunately it keeps crashing my explorer under windows 7-64bit.
Uninstalling the program isn't pretty either as it kills the explorer some more.
I managed to uninstall but it took couple of tries, because if you don't remove the component from Foobar it will install deskband again.

I would like to know what is left on computer after uninstalling, what does the program modify and leaves?

Thanks

Hi!

First of all, if you can upload here your config located at C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\DeskbandControls\
that would help me to diagnose whats wrong. Also, make sure you are using the latest version.

Instructions on how to uninstall deskband are in !readme.txt located at C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000\user-components\foo_deskband_controls\
After you execute uninstall.cmd and remove foobar plugin nothing remains in the system.

Hi,
Thanks for response.
Yes, it is the new version. At first it worked for 5 minutes. But, I tried changing the size of picture, must have hurt the program.
After uninstalling, I tried installing again but it was too late and windows explorer and deskband didn't like each other anymore.
I will send you the .json file.

Cheers

Also try to delete DeskbandControls.json in config folder and restart explorer, that should fix it, I guess...

I just deleted it, but I sent the file in email to you. My explorer is fine now. If you come up with the reason for conflict, I will try installing again. I like the program, one thing that would cool is the ability to switch playlists.
Ohh, one more thing before the crashes, I also changed the number of songs to be displayed.
