Title: Advanced Controls (foo_advancedcontrols)
Post by: niver on 2006-12-18 00:38:07
Hi all.

I just updated foo_advancedcontrols with the latest SDK.

I took the time to implement a function available in the Winamp version of this plugin but was missing in the Foobar2000 component - the Volume bar.

You can choose if you want the volume bar or the seeking bar to be shown on top of the control icons. You can assign a hotkey to switch between the volume and the seeking bar.

I also added a brand new function that may not completely fit in the Advanced Controls concept, but, well... why create a new component just for that? The function is an option to automatically pause the playback when entering screensaver mode. I find that very useful. Maybe that's not the case for everyone, so this option is disabled by default.

1- This is fixed for the next release, thanks
2- The folder tree is available in the zip file. You will get something like
Foobar2000
  -- components
  -- --  foo_advancedcontrol.dll
  -- --  AdvancedControls
  -- -- --  BlueXP
  -- -- -- --  [icon files]
  -- -- --  SilverXP
  -- -- -- --  [icon files]

Thank you very much for this component!

I'm sorry you have issues with the component not saving the Slider setting, but this is a problem I can't reproduce. The slider setting is saved correctly on all my test machines.

Please make sure you are using the latest version of the component.

I am also having this problem. I tried removing my foobar2000.cfg file, but the problem persisted. I also tried removing foo_advancedcontrols.dll, starting Foobar2000, answering that I did not want my settings from the disabled component saved, then reinstalling the DLL.

I'd love to have the volume slider. That's the main reason I want the component. Is there anything I can do to help you track down this issue?

Oh, I forgot to mention, I am using the latest version of the component.

Since this component is a port of the equivalent Winamp plugin, it doesn't use yet the standard Foobar2000 way to store its parameters (foobar2000.cfg), it stores them in the registry. This will probably be changed later.

Try removing the key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Niversoft\FooBar2000 Advanced Controls
from the registry
There should be a value named VolumeSlider in it (REG_DWORD). 1=volume, 0=seek.

I did additional tests while checking for the changes required to go to the standard foobar200 way to store config. I found out that we were both right about the volume slider config, I wasn't testing the right thing:

The volume slider config is saved. If you choose Volume slider, you close and reopen foobar then press play, the volume slider is shown.

However, both the config page and the submenu item does not display the current setting, they always display Seek slider. This is fixed in the upcoming release (the announcement will come later today or this week).

v0.5.9.4 is now available.

Release notes:
- Fixed: Slider setting is not displayed correctly in the config page
- Settings are now saved in foobar2000.cfg instead of the registry. Previous version's settings are automatically imported then deleted from the registry.

I just noticed the delete-current-file-function. Fantastic!
AFAIK is this the only possibility to delete the playing song and jump to the next. Like the old massdelete-plugin for v8.x
I would love to see a standalone delete-current-file-plugin 

Great Plugin. Thank You.

I've downloaded some of the extra icon skins listed under the foobar version of this component, but they want to have winamp installed and won't proceed. Any chance of having dedicated foobar versions of them?

v0.5.10.0 is now available.

All langages are now integrated in the same library and selectable in component options. The component file is thus slightly bigger (260kb instead of 220kb...) but we have to maintain only one package instead of 20.

Available languages in this version:

Release notes:
- Auto-pause on screensaver restarts (stop + play) music streaming instead of pausing (pause + play) it.
- Merged all languages in a single component file.

Hello.

We updated the plugin with the latest foobar2000 SDK and the problem apparently went away. No change in the plugin code.

v0.5.10.2 is now available.

Is this plugin another casualty of the API change of version 0.9.5.3? It doesn't seem to load up at all. It's acting like a "Banned" plugin, although it is not listed as such.

The plugin always had to be installed in the components folder. Maybe installing it in foobar root worked in previous version, but this is not supported.

Your zip file path has a blank path for dll & text files, while everything else has path folders. Since the path is blank, the dll & 2 txt files installs into the foobar2000 root directory. You may want to add "component" to the path for those 3 files. Thank you for the prompt help replies.

All components available on http://foobar2000.org/components/index.html (http://foobar2000.org/components/index.html) are provided without the "component" path in the zip file. You are expected to unpack these zip files in the component subfolder, I don't see why Advanced Controls should be different?

A bug which exist since a long time :

Title: Advanced Controls (foo_advancedcontrols)
Post by: niver on 2008-05-26 01:58:10
This happens when another software inserts its icon at the same time foo_advancedcontrols inserts its two. There is no way to completely prevent that to happen.

When this happens, you can either close and reopen foobar2000, or select "Configuration" / "Reset Tray Icons" in the foo_advancedcontrols right-click menu.

it is bad  You really can't merge icon ?
Title: Advanced Controls (foo_advancedcontrols)
Post by: niver on 2008-05-26 02:06:47
No. Windows explorer supports only 16x16 icons. foo_advancedcontrols uses two icons wide, and the call to display an icon must be done once for each icon. While this doesn't happen often, there is always the possibility of another software inserting its icon at the same time, and Explorer displays the other software's icon between foo_advancedcontrols icons.

Most of the time the two foo_advancedcontrols icons are placed together. If it isn't the case on your system, there might be something else causing that - maybe your taskbar is on two or more rows?

Hi!

Thanks for this handy little control panel!

A couple of remarks:

1. Bug: In Preferences, select any foreign language (I selected French) and save.  It is not possible any more to go back to English.  (Selecting another foreign language works.)

2. Not really a bug: When selecting a skin saved on disc, F2K must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

3. When hovering the mouse pointer over an icon, no tooltip is displayed.  Is the "Title" field in Preferences intended to define the content of the tooltip?  It doesn't work for me, no matter what I type in the field.  (The balloon appearing when a new track begins to play works fine.)

4. Suggestion: Add a configurable balloon duration in Preferences.  Currently, it is way too short for me.

5. Question: Is it possible to remove completely the original F2K icon from the tray?  It is now useless.

Merci beaucoup!

Hello.

1. Fixed for next release. Stay tuned.

2. I'm not able to reproduce this problem.

3. There is a tooltip. Sometimes tooltips of the taskbar are being displayed _behind_ the taskbar, that's a long-known Explorer bug. When this happens, one of the workarounds is to open the start menu, all programs, right-click on any of them and click "sort by name". Tooltips will then be shown in front.

4. The balloon display is currently fixed at 4 seconds. I'm not sure we want to add a preference field for that. EDIT: You're lucky, the option has been implemented

5. Foobar does not provide us with a way to remove its icon from the tray, but there is perhaps a possible hack. I will see what we can do. EDIT: You're lucky again

v0.5.11.0 is now available.

We moved things around in the preferences pane to make some place for two new options (thanks r0lZ and others for the ideas/requests).

The Volume/Seek option has been removed from the preferences as it is already available in the tray icon context menu and the Foobar2000 main menu.

- New option: Hide the Foobar2000 notification icon. The SDK doesn't provide this option to component, we had to find another way. There's no guarantee a future version of Foobar2000 will not break this feature. This feature will work only on Windows XP and further versions.

- New option: Balloon hide delay, default 4 seconds, can be increased up to 10 seconds.

We also updated the the component to use the latest SDK.

v0.5.11.1 is now available.

We have been requested to remove the "Hide Icon" feature as it's possibly against the Foobar2000 SDK terms.

In the latest version of Foobar2000 there is already an option to do so, in the user interface components (colums ui and default ui). Check your Default UI settings.

Try %length%. 
%playback_time% is the current playback position and is not available for a static display such as the pop-up balloon.

As I said %length% is working fine but I wanted to be able to show the elapsed time too to replicate the display on the status bar which I have hidden. That's a shame, no way to show a changing display then?

FAC uses Windows standard notification functions, and Windows may not display balloons when a full-screen app is running. There's no way around, unless FAC draws the balloon by itself, something we have no intent to implement. Sorry.

I'm not able to reproduce this problem with v0.5.10.3 here.

NH

known old bug with new version again !! 

I have noticed a a old bug again in V 0.5.10.3 : When I hover the mouse over the controls, an info balloon pops up with the Artist and Title. However, it always shows the artist and title for the previous track, not the current one!!!

I play with Foobar2000 0.9.5.2 -

Thanx for help!

I can confirm this bug, even more funny 1 part shows the tooltip from current track, 1 part the previous.

v0.5.11.4 is now available.

Some new code has been added to try to prevent the icons from being hidden by the auto-hide feature of the Explorer taskbar. This change also touched some code that could have been the source of the tooltip text bug reported earlier by several people. Since we haven't been able to reproduce it here before and after the change, it's hard to tell whether or not it has been fixed.

The component has been updated to use the latest SDK.

Great component, one request and a tiny bug report:

Req: Please add ability to set properties of currently playing track (similar to the 'delete current file' idea)

Bug: Tooltips that should include a '&' sign are distorted (e.g. Robert Plant &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&).

cheers.

Thanks for the great plug-in.  I use it all the time because the program I work with wants to be full-screen.

I download the Advanced Controls from page http://pelit.koillismaa.fi/plugins/show.php?id=138 (http://pelit.koillismaa.fi/plugins/show.php?id=138)
And copy file foo_AdvancedControls.dll and folder AdvancedControls into my foobar2000's components folder.
When I restart my foobar2000 v0.9.6.3,it crashes and give me the following result:

So, I renames foo_AdvancedControls.dll into foo_AdvancedControls.dll.disable, then restarts foobar2000, it's ok now.

Can anyone give some advise on how to properly use Advanced Controls?

I download the Advanced Controls from page http://pelit.koillismaa.fi/plugins/show.php?id=138 (http://pelit.koillismaa.fi/plugins/show.php?id=138)
And copy file foo_AdvancedControls.dll and folder AdvancedControls into my foobar2000's components folder.
When I restart my foobar2000 v0.9.6.3?it crashes and give me the following result:

Hello.

First, make sure your download is not corrupted. This is unlikely, but it may happen.

Then, could you please try to disable all third-party components except Advanced Controls and check if you can crash foobar2000 again. If it works, try to enable your other extensions one by one until you find the one causing the player to crash.

Post the result of your tests here. If I'm able to reproduce the problem, I will probably be able to fix it.

Regards.

hi, I follow you suggestion, create a new installation of foobar2000 v0.9.6.3, and copy the file foo_AdvancedControls.dll and folder AdvancedControls into the components folder of the new installation... and when foobar2000 starts, it crash again.

Here is the error result:

Title: Advanced Controls (foo_advancedcontrols)
Post by: niver on 2009-03-17 15:26:29
I download the Advanced Controls from page http://pelit.koillismaa.fi/plugins/show.php?id=138 (http://pelit.koillismaa.fi/plugins/show.php?id=138)
And copy file foo_AdvancedControls.dll and folder AdvancedControls into my foobar2000's components folder.
When I restart my foobar2000 v0.9.6.3?it crashes and give me the following result:

[snip]

So, I renames foo_AdvancedControls.dll into foo_AdvancedControls.dll.disable, then restarts foobar2000, it's ok now.

Can anyone give some advise on how to properly use Advanced Controls?


Hello.

First, make sure your download is not corrupted. This is unlikely, but it may happen.

Then, could you please try to disable all third-party components except Advanced Controls and check if you can crash foobar2000 again. If it works, try to enable your other extensions one by one until you find the one causing the player to crash.

Post the result of your tests here. If I'm able to reproduce the problem, I will probably be able to fix it.

Regards.



hi, I follow you suggestion, create a new installation of foobar2000 v0.9.6.3, and copy the file foo_AdvancedControls.dll and folder AdvancedControls into the components folder of the new installation... and when foobar2000 starts, it crash again.

Here is the error result:

[snip]





Unfortunately I'm unable to reproduce the problem here. It's likely caused by something else on your system, but it's hard to know what. The stack trace and other debug info is not really useful as the dll does not contain debug symbols.

Contact me offlist and I will send you a debug version, but I can't promise you anything. My email address is in the readme file of the component.

Regards

Advanced Control v0.5.11.5 crashed my foobar when used together with either foo_winamp_ipc-0.1.3 or foo_winamp_spam_v0.96. I need to delete foo_AdvancedControls.dll in order to avoid the crash. I'm using foobar v0.9.6.5.

It doesn't crash on my system with either foo_winamp_ipc-0.1.3 or foo_winamp_spam_v0.98.

Can you give me more information about the crash? When does it happen? As soon as you start Foobar2000, or when a certain command is issued? On which version of Windows are you running Foobar2000? Are you able to get the same problem on another machine?

Anybody else able to reproduce this?

I need help to fix that problem since I'm unable to reproduce it here. But I see this crash occurred for other people too.

If anybody is able to reproduce the problem on his system and willing to help, please contact me (PM or email), this shouldn't take too long of your time.

Thanks!

Could you please download the component again ( http://www.niversoft.com/downloads/AdvancedControls-foo.zip (http://www.niversoft.com/downloads/AdvancedControls-foo.zip) ), I made sure the debug symbols are included in it. When it crashes, please post or send me directly the full foobar report. With the debug symbols, it should be possible for me to pinpoint the exact cause and location of the crash and fix it once and for all...

Regards

Here you go. After several tries, I found out that the crash might not caused by the coexistence of both Advanced Control and foo_winamp_ipc-0.1.3 or foo_winamp_spam_v0.96. So it must be between Advanced Control with the foobar itself. It would be nice if you can fix it. Thanks in advance.

Title: Advanced Controls (foo_advancedcontrols)
Post by: niver on 2009-05-14 04:41:18
Here you go. After several tries, I found out that the crash might not caused by the coexistence of both Advanced Control and foo_winamp_ipc-0.1.3 or foo_winamp_spam_v0.96. So it must be between Advanced Control with the foobar itself. It would be nice if you can fix it. Thanks in advance.

Code: [Select]
Illegal operation:
Code: C0000005h, flags: 00000000h, address: 7C936A12h
Access violation, operation: read, address: 00000000h


The crash report seems to point to the code which detects the current version of Windows. This code was needed to change a bit the display of trays icons depending on the windows version, to match exactly the shell appearance. However, since Foobar2000 now supports only Windows XP and up, I have been able to completely replace that code by a much simpler Windows API call.

Please download v0.5.12 from http://www.niversoft.com/downloads/AdvancedControls-foo.zip (http://www.niversoft.com/downloads/AdvancedControls-foo.zip) and let me know if this fixes the problem.

If it still crashes, could you please disable all the components that does not come with foobar2000 by default (especially foo_unpack_7z and foo_prettypop) before creating the crash report, they don't help me at all in my debugging.

If it work, I will then release 0.5.12 more officially, and hopefully ask the moderators to change this thread's title to something more appealing.

Thanks for your help!

I tried the new version and I think it works. There's no more crash even with the prettypop and unpack7z enabled together.

The word 'Crashware' sure does not feel good to read.

EDIT:
Ugh, I got a little difficulty to click the little icons in the notification area. It seems the only clickable button is the previous button and the seek slider. And both of it only works on the very left side of the tray icons.

Thanks for the report.
I think the moderators are reading the thread as crashware is gone! (yay)

v0.5.12.1 is now available.

People following the thread probably saw what was going on with that hard-to-figure bug affecting some people. After a lot of debugging and the input from several users and two fb developpers, we finally found two locations that could have caused it, and fixed or removed the affecting code.

There is no change in the features of the component. However, some parts have been rewritten for efficiency and with more validation to make sure the called Windows API behaves as documented (it appears it's not always the case...).

The new component is not compatible anymore with Windows versions prior to Windows XP, but that shouldn't be a problem since Foobar 2000 isn't either.

I edited my prior post, but maybe it would be more noticeable with new post. I think you misplaced the clickable coordinates, so only the seek bar and the previous button are clickable. But even that has their own problems. Maybe the compatibility changes also changed the coordinates.

Thanks. The bug was fixed here, but I forgot to rebuild the package after fixing it.

The new fixed package is up (v0.5.12.2)

Because the new binary includes debug symbols which will allow me to fix problems much more quickly if other bugs are reported.

This increase of size does not change the efficiency of the component.

When you finish the fix you can remove the debug symbols?

Please explain what you mean - there shouldn't be a difference with previous versions.
The volume/time bar has only 32 pixels wide anyway, it's a bit hard to be precise, isn't it?

Are the 256 extra bytes really that annoying? Debug symbols are just extra informations in the binary to link a section of compiled code with the human-readable code it comes from. When these symbols are combined with the program database created by the compiler (a file I have here), it's possible for me to pinpoint exactly where a crash happens when a proper report is sent to me. I would prefer keeping these debug symbols on.

/DEBUG enables PDB generation but also disables some linker optimizations by default, try forcing unreferenced code elimination (/OPT:REF) in linker settings.

Right, thanks. The /OPT:REF setting is usually forced on in my projects but I forgot it in this one.

niver,
your component blocks going to sleep mode when foobar2000 is playing or when it's paused. Please stop doing that, people are complaining and making false accusations about the core. Or at least confess why and write a disclaimer about it.
Thanks.

Sorry, unfortunately the major changes to the taskbar behavior in Windows 7 will make it impossible to update the component for it to work correctly. I'm investigating the possibilities, and the most probable solution is a simple component with several tray icons, which will each do one action (play, stop, next, prev). No trackbar, nothing fancy, something like the basic "Nullsoft Tray Icon" plugin in Winamp, for those who tried it.

I think it was mentioned earlier in the thread, but Im wondering if its possible for the Advanced Controls could take over the foobar's system tray icon. It seems a bit wasteful having 3 icons there!

I looked at the DefaultUI, but theres no option to completely hide the icon.

Thanks.

Yes, it could. It even did at some point. But FB devs don't want me to mess with their icon, so if I do, even by just offering an option to hide the Foobar2000 icon, thay may ban my component.

You need to talk to them so they modify FB and add an option to completely hide the FB icon. Unfortunately, I'm not free to do what I want with FB.

Someone likes to be rude with component developers, makes me want to get out of here and pull the plug on my component.

Ok, I'll do this.

But I still don't get this way of treating people who develop components to enhance their app, maybe that's just me. It's not as if I was making money on they back, or anything. I do that for free, I enjoy doing that, foobar2000 is great, and free. How am I supposed to react quickly to reported crashes if I'm not aware of them? Am I supposed to check the online troubleshooter each day, just in case? And when I don't react quickly enough because no one noticed me, they put [crashware] on my component's thread, making me look like a bad dev to everyone who happens to visit the forums. How hard is it to just drop an email to the dev telling "we received several bug reports about X, you can get the crash reports here" - even a single post in the component thread would be better...

Anyway, sorry for the rant, I'll try to figure out what's going on again and update the component if possible.

  I suppose you know that Foobar is now 1.0.  Advansed Kontrols does not work on 1.0. The .5 series of Advansed kontrols was appriesiated by myself though. Thank you. Should you develop a new version to work with the new Foobar, my suggestion would be to enlarge it by one ikon. Two ikons size was just too krowded.
Title: Advanced Controls (foo_advancedcontrols)
Post by: niver on 2010-03-15 21:28:25
The current version does work with Foobar 1.0, but is not optimized for it. I actually have a version here using the new SDK, almost ready for release, but just didn't have time yet to complete the testing. I will try to make it happen soon.
     
   
      That new version will unfortunately still be incompatible with Win7. 
   
      However, now that our dev machine has been upgraded to Windows 7, we will likely work on creating a version compatible with it. It will not be possible to include a slider at all, so either we remove the slider completely and merge the four tiny buttons on the same icon, or the slider is made inactive and becomes only a display of the current position. I would prefer the former solution, as using only one icon would definitively resolve the icon position problem that's bound to be more present in Win7. 
   
      Comments and ideas from everyone are welcome. 
   
      gleefeld, I don't see how a 3-icons solution would help or fix anything. The icons are not more or less crowded than before, they use the same layout since the beginning. I'm not sure how you want me to organize 4 controls and 1 slider (for the winxp/vista version) in 3 icons...

v0.6.0.1 is now available, introducing compatibility with Foobar2000 v1.0.1 and its new preference page features (apply button), as well as beta Windows 7 compatibility.

The support for Windows 7 is incomplete. The volume/position slider has been disabled and the four remaining buttons has been merged in a single icon, and there is no visual feedback during the click of one of these buttons.

This is the best I can do in a short period of time. I will evaluate the possibility of enhancing the support, but the odds are against us, and the result would be a hack. Restoring the position slider would likely require either a global mouse hook to be created, or a DLL to be injected in Explorer, both things that can lead to system instability if not done very carefully. Unfortunately I don't have the resources to go that way for now.

I am open to all suggestions regarding Win7 compatibility, including insights from hardcore Win7 GUI/API programmers, if any...

The Advanced Controls icons has been designed when Windows 95 was still cutting edge, and that kind of icon control was, and is, still unique. Many people told me at that time that such control wasn't possible, and I have yet to see another program using the Notification Area the way I do. I managed to keep the icons working from Win95 to Windows Vista, seven different flavours of Windows with small differences in the shell forcing me to adapt the rendering each time. Windows 7 seems to push the challenge further, but, with the lack of mousemove and mousedown events, with the ability to move the icons manually from a spot to another and with the taskbar visual feedback in the way, it's likely the Notification area isn't anymore the best place to put those icons...

Great news everyone! A new release of Foobar2000 Advanced Controls, specifically targeting Windows 7 enhancements, is arriving!

I finally managed to get a few ideas to bring back the full features of the component when running Windows 7.

Please note there is still a few differences:

I am aiming to find the best possible behavior given the limits imposed by Windows 7, so I'm open to any suggestion or comment you may have on this change.

This is not yet an official release, the official download link hasn't been updated to point to that new version. If you want to try it, please use this direct, but temporary link (http://www.niversoft.com/downloads/AdvancedControls-foo6.5-beta.zip).

I need Windows 7 testers, but also WinXP and Vista testers, to confirm the Windows 7-related changes didn't break the component on other Windows versions. I will likely test it on WinXP later, but I don't have any Vista instance anymore here.

So if you can try it, please report either in this thread or to me directly whether or not it is working, and on which version of Windows.

Thanks for your help!

however prettypop has a very annoying bug since early versions where the micro-window would suddenly not show up anymore until you restart foobar. This happened even quicker in W7, afther few hours the plug in stops working. and it is not being currently developed anymore, so I deinstalled it.
Foo_osd sucked because it is not triggerable via hotkey.

I ended up not having song info in other applications.

I forgot that you had also this side feature...and now everything is fine with foobar again

thanks my friend

Thanks!

While your using it, if ever you find something that doesn't feel like the previous versions (well, except the bit awkward right-drag I've been forced to use), please let me know.

Regards.
NH

I owe you my thanks, I finally decided to install your extension again, since I moved onto W7.
although beta, I am confident with your extension. Feels almost like the same as in XP days.
thanks!

Ok, thats fine, I will have to spend more time with the computer the next days and foobar is always running.
I will let you know if there are any problems as soon as I encounter one.

I might have a tiny suggestion, only if you like:
the volume control is exponential (I know it was like this before) and thought maybe of another option in the menu (exponential/linear)? not a big deal though, I am fine with exponential.

minor bug:
when you change the volume in foobar window, your volume bar in taskbar is not updated until you hover it with the mouse pointer.

But I fear if you fix this it will increase CPU usage.

Yes, it will increase CPU usage. Approximately by 0.001% :-)

The "slowest" part of AdvancedControls is to update the icons. That's why several, really quick internal tests are done to check if the update would change something or not. The check for volume position wasn't performed correctly.

Fixed, will be in next release.

Well, it works in the Windows XP I used for testing, so I will need more information to fix the issue.

- Do you use a special theme, some specific configuration that could change the appearance, size or behavior of the windows taskbar?

Can you send a screenshot of your taskbar to info@niversoft.com please?

Click an empty spot of your taskbar, press ALT-PrintScreen on your keyboard, then paste into Paint (start menu, all programs, accessories, Paint). Save as jpeg and send by email.

I think I have an idea of what's going on, but I want to be sure.

Thanks.

Hello.

Thanks for the screenshot.

I see the hitpoint is about 2 pixels off in the two dimensions, which may explain why you're hitting the volume bar or the Prev button when clicking Stop. I will try to fix this as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, try to click a bit more to the right and down of the buttons, you'll avoid missing the spot.

Regards.

Should be fixed now.

The maths to calculate the hot spots and the icons positions are simple arithmetic but use a truck load of different variables coming from the Windows settings, the current taskbar position, the mouse position, etc, most being relative to another, some absolute. The variable tray icon width of all Windows prior to Vista is not the easiest to integrate (the icon width / height is usually 16 pixels, but may vary with the windows title bars height, go figure)

Hi, I really like the delete function of the advanced controls. In fact that is the reason, I got this plugin for foobar. (The tray controls were just a bonus for me, but now I don't want to miss them )
Previously I had a similar plugin for Winamp. I configured it to delete the file without asking, as I am sure, when I use my key combination, and sometimes listen to music, while playing a game.
I really miss this option at advanced controls. It's not a hard thing to implement that, so please?

This option is not currently available, and I'm not sure it is something I want to implement in this component. I'm pretty sure that, if I offer an easy access to such an option, I will then receive hundreds of emails complaining about mysteriously disappearing music files. You may not know this, but the Winamp version of this plugin shares 90% of the code with this one, so adding this option here would also add it on the Winamp side. Foobar2000 users are usually knowledgeable. Most Winamp users too, but over the several thousands who are running my plugin there WILL be several file casualities.

You would have better luck with this other component of mine: http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=53305 (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=53305)
I didn't update it for a while but it should still work with the latest Foobar2000. Let me know in the other thread if you have troubles with it.
I know it duplicates the Delete function already available in Advanced Controls, but it also gives you the no-confirm option.

Regards.

Yes, a component for Foobar2000 only, used by people who know what they are doing.

The Advanced Controls plugin/component for Winamp has been downloaded more than 150 thousand times, so with conservative numbers, if 10% of these downloads are still in use and 95% of them know what they are doing, that still means up to 750 possible complains about mysteriously disappearing music. And I don't have the time to deal with that.

Yes, I'm probably making all that up in my mind. Still, better safe than sorry. If I find a better, safe solution, I will let you know.

Most older versions aren't available anymore, apart from a very very old version (2006), in English only, and very likely buggy.
Your best guess is to update Foobar2000.

If you want to use the old version, you're doing it at your own risks. Please don't report bugs or ask for support about them from either Foobar2000 devs or myself. This old version can be downloaded from http://www.niversoft.com/downloads/old/wac...-0.5.1.4-en.zip (http://www.niversoft.com/downloads/old/wac/foo_advancedcontrols-0.5.1.4-en.zip) and may crash Foobar2000.

Version 0.6.7 is now available, fixing a click offset issue on Windows 7, when the taskbar is double-height but the notification area still has a single row of icons.

Please install the latest Foobar2000 (v1.1.7) and use the Preferences/Components - Install button to install foo_AdvancedControls.

Just to let you know that I renamed the package to help installation.
The Foobar2000 component install dialog filters zip files beginning by foo_*, so I made sure the package matched the pattern.

So AdvancedControls-foo.zip becomes foo_AdvancedControls.zip

Don't worry, the old links still works and simply redirects to the new package. DLL name didn't change.

Hey niver,

Great plugin you have there!

May I ask for a very small modification of the plugin for foobar2000?
Here's the deal:

When hovering the mouse over the tray controls a tooltip pops up with info about artist and track. Everything is fine as long as there is a valid artist tag in the currently playing mp3. When this tag is missing, then there is a question mark insted, e.g. "? - African Man" or "? - Hally & Kongo Band - African Man". This is because you hardcoded a bit inappropriate template for the tray tooltip - "%artist% - %title%". If you can just put sqare brackets around the artist metadata and the dash everything would be just fine: "[%artist% - ]%title%". The sqare brackets make foobar2000 ignore emty tags so no question mark would appear. The %title% metatag automatically assumes the filename string if the title tag is empty, so no need to surround %title% with square brackets.

Or, you can simply make this template user editable in the options

Thans for the time.


P.S.

I think the option "Volume when streaming source" doesnot work and cannot be set - foobar2000 1.1.8, Adv.controls 0.6.7.2, Win XP & Win 7

Hi. Thanks for the report.

As a sidenote, I tried three months ago to contact the Powers That Be to put this component on the official list. So far, no answer, not even a "no". So, for now, I give up, unless one of my fans here have a good idea or knows someone who knows someone.

Wow! That was fast!

Thanks for the quick reaction! Great!


The automatic slide type switching now works as intended, but with some streaming sources it fails to recognize the source and the slider stays empty (with no lever). Not sure if this behaviour is due to the plugin itself or is caused by a bug in foobar2000.

In the past the Foobar API was always returning a duration of -1 for streaming sources. I see it's now sometimes returning 0 as well, but there's a (new?) function to know if the source is seekable. I updated the component to use this function. The new version will be available soon.

Thank you for this improvement of the nearly perfect foobar.

A suggestion/question: is it possible to add the functionality to increase/decrease the volume by using the mouse wheel when hovering the icon?

Also it would be nice to have a 'simple use' or 'compact' modus 
-> only 1 icon that switches from <play> to <pause>, and by doubleclick to <stop>, or something like that

I'm pretty sure the mousewheel event isn't sent to the tray icon, but I will verify, this is a very good idea.

Sorry, this one will not happen. You can likely setup global key shortcuts for play, pause and stop. Some keyboard models have media keys that can be easily mapped to Foobar2000 playback control.

I verified, unfortunately the mousewheel event can't be received by the component, sorry I can't add this feature.

The Download link direct's you to the Foobar program not the component.
Please fix this.

You are clicking within a main menu of links related to Foobar2000. It is the main navigation menu bar common to every foobar2000.org page.
Try clicking download within the body of the web page. Hint: under links

Skreaxy, I agree this download system may be confusing the first time you see it. Unfortunately I don't control the page layout, and I'm sure you'll figure it out and find it less confusing the next time you have to use it.

it is true that the event can not be received by the component; but you can add an option to control the volume with mousewheel when the mouse is over the whole systray ?

This would require low-level hooks or DLL injection in Explorer. Which are both far beyond the scope of a Foobar2000 extension, very prone to crash unsuspecting end-user desktops, and possibly against the Foobar2000 SDK license.

I understand your request, I would love to be able to implement it a clean way, but from an engineering standpoint, this hack-y solution is begging for trouble.

Post by: DoctorO on 2012-03-22 16:09:30
hooking into the shell is a minefield of problems.

not only do you need to have access to do it, if running on a 64-bit OS it's not going to work unless a 64-bit hook dll is used and that then is a fun things to install if running from a 32-bit program (as is the case here).

and there's also not forgetting needing to do some form of IPC between the hook and the component. and if something fails in the hook dll then it can take the Windows shell down with it. plus there can be funkiness with the removal of the hook dll especially when doing fast close and starts of the parent program which can lead to other failures with it all.

I'm glad we have the same opinion. Not worth it in end-user software.

I've done it on my own desktop for other reasons (non-foobar-related), and even to answer business customer specific orders, always somewhere I could provide direct (and paid) support in case of trouble. For instance, using DLL injection in Explorer, I replaced the rendering procedure for the tray clock so it would be bigger and bear the full time, including the seconds, and the date at the same time on WinXP (and Win7).

But I would never pull that kind of trick in on-the-wild licensed desktop software, let alone free one. Recipe for failure.

Hi.

I have problem with Advanced Controls in Foobar on Windows 7 Pro x64 - the Advanced Controls icons doesnt show on. I see both of them in the tray icons list but after changing the "show icon and notifications" I get information that those icons are not active at the moment. The situation is the same in Foobar2000 version 1.1.1 and 1.2 - on both I tried Advanced Controls 0.6.7.4 and 0.6.5.4. The system is freshly installed with all patches. I got another Windows 7 Pro x64 installed more than 1 year ago on the same PC and everything works fine there (with Foobar2000 version 1.1.1).

Start Foobar2000, and click the little up arrow at the left of the visible tray icons to open the box (also called the "notification icons overflow"). You should see the Advanced Controls icons there. Drag (click+move) them out of the box to the visible tray, one by one, taking care to place them in the correct order. They should automatically reappear there next time you will start Foobar2000.

Yes I know that the icons should be there first time.. (Ive been using the plugin for more than 1 year  ) but in my situation they dont appear anywhere. I only see them on the list after clicking "Customize" tray icons. System says that they are inactive, so I dont thinks its about Windows that is blocking them.

If they are inactive and Foobar2000 is running, then the component is likely not loaded at all. Make sure it's installed properly, make sure Foobar2000 is fully restarted, you can maybe even reboot your machine, maybe some process is stuck somewhere, I don't know...

Good luck

Im working with that problem for a week now.. I've installed the component by copying the dll file and by using fb2k-component file many times. Also restarted the system few times and reinstalled Foobar2000. Its not a critical plugin for me but Im used to it    Just thought someone had similar problem so I wrote on this forum. Any info where to look in registry, Windows and Foobar configuration would be nice
Title: Advanced Controls (foo_advancedcontrols)
Post by: niver on 2013-01-09 21:02:29
Time for me to re-test everything on a clean Win7 machine...

- Installed freshly downloaded Foobar2000 v1.2. Closed FB2k.
- Downloaded foo_AdvancedControls.fb2k-component from http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/...dvancedcontrols (http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_advancedcontrols) and double-clicked it. FB2k installs it. Clicked Apply
- Dismissed the FB2k first startup message (that I should probably rewrite and simplify now that Win7 is a lot more mainstream than mid-2011...)
- The two icons are hidden in the overflow area, so I move them in position and bingo.

What you can do now:
- open the Start menu and type %appdata% in the search box. You will likely see the "Roaming" folder appear. Open it. You should see a lot of folders, including one named "foobar2000". Open it, then user-components, then foo_AdvancedControls. There should be a foo_AdvancedControls.dll file in that last directory, as well as two text files and another subdirectory.

If everything is OK, there may be something missing in your system, but I have no idea what (yet), the plugin is not (supposed to be) dependency-hungry. I can try a few more diagnostics with you if you want, but they involve more advanced steps such as installing third-party diagnostic software. PM me if you're interested.

Ok, I finally see the icons. But.. I chose portable installation.

Now I deleted foobar portable directory, installed Standard foobar with Advanced Controls and icons dont appear..

If you saw the icons in portable installation, at least now we know nothing is missing on your computer.

Looks like Foobar2000 is not loading the components from the correct location or something like that. Foobar2000 is responsible of installing the components and loading them afterwards. Did you try other third-party components available as a fb2k-component file on foobar2000.org? Are they loading correctly?

Well, to be honest, I have absolutely no idea why foo_advancedcontrols fails to start on this machine.

As it works in portable installation, maybe you can use that installation type.

Sorry. If I find something I will let you know. Anybody having an idea is welcome to contribute.

I wish we could have by default in foobar systray icon some basic features like volume control without the need to rely on such third party plugin. Vol+ Vol- and Mute would do it, Mute / Unmute is a must have.

I know I can use some global hotkeys but 'global' is where the problem lies, hence the need of a quick way to Mute / Unmute the player without a hotkey. Like many other players do.

If you want feature without relying on a third-party plugin, a third-party plugin forum thread like this one may not be the best place where to ask for it 

I think a global hotkey is a quicker method to access such functions than relying on a mouse. If you have problems finding a hotkey that doesn't get in the way of other software, remember Foobar2000 has the ability to create global hotkeys with Win+key combination, so you're surely find something that isn't used anywhere else. Personally I used Ctrl+Win+Up/Down to control volume for a long time.

You could also purchase a keyboard with media keys built-in, at least vol up/down and mute.
