Title: Apparent borders inside Text Display
Post by: spuuunit on 2019-06-17 21:46:09
The way the borders are so apparent inside the Text Display really bugs me. It really sticks out compared to all other components. Here's an example of what I mean: Album Art Viewer vs Text Display https://imgur.com/GcWRRmZ

I don't suppose there is a way to get rid of that "inside border/padding"? Is there another similar plugin that displays text maybe?

Hey there,

Out of curiosity what OS and foobar version are you on?

I use foo_textdisplay and have no borders at all (Win10). At least in foobar 1.4 series, Splitters / Tabs / Playlist Tabs have borders that can be toggled in Layout Editing Mode with a right-click (have to be precise to right-click splitters).

As an alternative I guess Lyric Show 3 (https://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_uie_lyrics3) and ESLyric (https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,113111.0.html) both have fallback text if you de-select all lyric sources to stop them downloading or displaying local lyrics - LS3 only when playing, ESL also when not playing - so depends what text you want exactly. That was what I used to do before I switched to text display. :D (LS3 can actually highlight and color text on the same line, better than text display in that respect).

Perhaps there is also a Spider Monkey / JScript Panel solution if you know how to code stuff... ::)

Cheers

Oh god, I think Lyric Show 3 or ESLyric will work for me! Didn't know you could set what text you want. I'll try it out more tomorrow, thanks!  :D

Hmm I have some issues with these two plugins...

Lyric Show 3 "lags" a bit when playing a new track, probably because it searches / loads lyrics. But I don't show any lyrics, and I have turned everything lyrics related off in the settings... But it still "lags" a little when playing a new track.

ESLyric works quite good. Except I don't really like the fade in and out effect of my background image when playing a new track.

Any suggestion?

Hey...

LS3 - you mean a delay displaying fallback text? There is none for me. Did you remove all lyric sources from the left ('search order') to the right? (right-click panel > Preferences)

ESL - I never noticed background fade, just using a solid color here. Appears there are no settings to change that. :-\

Cheers

LS3: Sorry bad explaining - no the whole player lags when playing a new track. Gets worse the more instances of LS3 I have. Yes I removed them to the right.

ESL: I actually went with this one despite the fading. But it's too bad the text is centered, and you cant change that. =(

Anyway, if you know of more plugins that can show text and have background color / image, do tell. =)
