Title: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: eldarien on 2010-01-27 21:46:11
Hi everybody!
This is foobar2000 Deskband Controls plugin. You can see what it does from screenshot below.

Bugreports and suggestions are very welcome.

(http://i.imgur.com/hHQoc9g.png)

Supported operating systems are Windows 7, Windows 8 and 8.1, Windows 10.

The normal installation process should look like this:
1. Download component file from here: https://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_deskband_controls (https://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_deskband_controls)
2. Right click this file, select "Properties". In the properties window find "Unblock" checkbox and check it. Click "Ok".
3. Double-click component file. foobar2000 player should open and ask you "Do you want to continue?". Click "yes".
4. Component will appear in components list (unloaded). Click "Ok". foobar2000 will ask if you want to restart it. Click "Ok".
5. On foobar2000 restart a UAC window will open. Allow it to proceed (click "yes").
6. A console installer will run. There should be no errors in it. If it says "Types registered successfully. Installation completed." then you  are good. Close console window.
7. Now, right-click on taskbar and in "Toolbars" submenu there should be "Deskband Controls" item. You may have to wait a few seconds and right-click taskbar again as it may not appear instantly in the list.
8. After you clicked on "Deskband Controls" menu item start some music and you should see the deskband.

Also, feel free to share you setup profile with us! (Profiles are saved in %AppData%\DeskbandControls folder)

Can't seem to get it to work in Windows 7 x64.

Tried in the SysWOW64 folder too, no toolbar.

Thank you.
I don't think it needs a seek bar but I think it would be nice if it could also show the length of the track.

@Andreasvb do you have foo_winamp_spam? http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=61516 (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=61516)

No, what would that have anything do to with it? It doesn't appear under Toolbars.

I do have foo_vis_shpeck, which is the same thing.

It needs to be recompiled for us x64 users I think.

I like it. Couple of improvements (if possible):

- Close automatically when closing foobar (quite essential)
- Seekbar
- Show/hide foobar button
- Volume controls

Dependencies: foo_winamp_spam is required. Also, it works only on Windows 7 (and Vista, I suppose), but I am planning to make it work on XP too.

I would love to use such thing like this - Problem is I use another PC to serve music from foobar2000.

Any chance such app would work over IP?
Title: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: Andreasvb on 2010-01-28 01:20:37
It would surprise me if it would be required for it to even show up.
What that component does is it creates a fake Winamp 1x window that other programs can gather the now playing-info from.

And as I wrote, foo_vis_shpeck works the same, so you don't need that specific one.

TS can verify it if it's required or not.

The problem here is that the control needs to be registered as 32 bit, and it doesn't seem to like the "trick" to use the regsvr32 in the SysWOW64 folder.

Yes, you are right. I will try to make x64 version.

In current implementation - no. But this is interesting idea, I'll think about it.

- Close automatically when closing foobar (quite essential)

You mean hide toolbar when user closes player? But than you will have to enable it again manually.
I think this must be an option.

Just a request for the next version: can you also make a side-by-side version (buttons on the left, track info on the right) for people who use small icons for the taskbar? That would be great!
Title: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: garbanzo.bean on 2010-01-28 11:20:54
very cool. working great for me in x86.

i have no idea what is possible with something like this, but a few features that would be nice (some already mentioned):

scrolling text
open/close with foobar
button to show foobar
[paused] notification
cover art

also might be nice also to have a buttons-only version.

looking forward to watching this develop!

Technically all this is possible, but for some features (like cover art) there must be separate part as a foobar plugin. Maybe I will be able to remove foo_winamp_spam from dependencies in this case...


Thanks. Can I limit it's width? A user defined tagz string would be nice.
Minimum width is hardcoded to 200px. It will be configurable in next versions.
What do you mean by "tagz"? Is this foobar title formatting tags, like %artist%?
Anyway, you can chage string format in foo_winamp_spam settings.

Your component looks promising.

I support all the Keesface requests and the pause notification.

- Close automatically when closing foobar (quite essential)

You mean hide toolbar when user closes player? But than you will have to enable it again manually.
I think this must be an option.

I think it's possible to hide the controls of the toolbar without closing it, like windows media player toolbar, it would be the more convenient.


Other requests:
- Any possibilities to choose which control is showed would be welcome.
- Removing the winamp_spam dependencies would be welcome too. From what I've understand, it's no more really maintained... A dependencies-less component would be the better but otherwise I think it's better to rely on foo_vis_check (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=59388)

If you don't mind, can you also make a version that fits a minimum-sized vertical Windows 7 taskbar? I'm not sure how it's going to look - two lines of buttons plus another line or two for song info should be pretty ugly. But really - play/pause (preferably combined), rewind, fast forward is enough for me and most people and it fits in one line.

Hi, I`m new in this forum 

I have two simple questions:

1) how can I display only the buttons? I don't want test, title, artist or play status, [stopped], etc.
2) how can I display only buttons and play status? [play], [stopped], [suspended], etc

I hope it's possible!

Thanks
Donnie

ok, accepted.

It's not possible in this version, but will be possible in next one.

Great! I'll wait the new version!
Thanks 

PS. For the new version remind the possibilities to:

- don't display the duration of the song (I tried, but I think that now is not possible)
- put the buttons strictly near the notification icons (as near as possible to the clock, now is not possible, the buttons stay a little bit far from the notification icons)

Does it work without Winamp installed too? I haven't installed Winamp and it seems to work correctly.

Sorry if I wrote bad, I'm italian...

Nice, thanks. I managed to install it in one go and it works fine, but would it be possible to put this in an installer instead of having to do it manually? I guess that would improve usability.

Great! Keep up the good work.

With an autohide when foobar is not loaded (only show one button to launch foobar) I would definitively use it.

I have experienced two explorer crash when I have removed it from the taskbar to test different ini settings (win7). If I could help you with some dump files or test, just ask...

And some, less important/cosmetic suggestions:
- Replace the ini file by a foobar preference section. (At least make the ini file readable in the directory of Foobar2000DeskbandControls.dll for portable install)
- Autoscroll text
- Title formatting support
- Customizable icons

Note: your readme doesn't say that regsvr32 need a command prompt runned as administrator

Post by: TomBarlow on 2010-02-11 08:47:27
I have found that explorer crashes if you change the .ini file then remove the toolbar from the taskbar. You have to remove it first then change the .ini. This is on XP.

Another thing is, it doesn't seem to load the .ini file from foobar's configuration folder, it has to be %appdata%/foobar2000/configuration, whereas my config is stored in Program Files/foobar2000/configuration. (I'm not on portable mode.)

Something I would really like is a stop after current indicator, would that be possible?

I know  Storing ini in app folder is not a good thing in Win7. I am going to make separate folder for it in %appdata%, as it is ini only for deskband dll, not foobar plugin dll.

I don't understand. Can you explain what is it?

I thought it was odd too, but it seems to have stopped, probably because I restarted in the mean time.

I don't understand. Can you explain what is it?

Basically just another button that turns on/off stop after current (for me stop after current is just as important as play/pause and stop), except it has some indication of whether SAC is on or off (same as the play/pause button indicates whether foobar is playing). This thread is kind of related: http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=77230 (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=77230)

It would be great if you could consider it!

It does not work...
I put the ini file in the C:\Winprog\Foobar2000\Configuration folder (portable mode) and this is my custom ini file:

Options
;Windows 7, small icons, aero skin
MinWidth=350

TextShow=0
TextTop=7
TextLeft=172
TextShowStatus=1
TextShowTitle=1
TextShowTime=1

ButtonsShow=1
ButtonsTop=7
ButtonsLeft=0

SeekbarShow=0
SeekbarTop=7
SeekbarLeft=70
SeekbarWidth=100

But the configurations are not loaded, I have always the seekbar and the text.
I deleted the unwanted lines from deskband.ini, is it correct?
Why configurations are not loaded?

It is loaded only from %appdata%/foobar2000/configuration
If this folder does not exists (because of portable mode), create it and it will work.
On win 7 it's here: c:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000\configuration\

You can run this command in command line to see exact location: echo %appdata%

I created the folder c:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000\configuration\ and putted the ini file in it, but it looks always full-configurated.
Before the changes I closed Foobar and the Foobar DeskBand Controls and than I restart, but with no changes.
Am I still doing something wrong?

It should be loaded from the foobar2000's configuration folder, if it's in portable mode then it should not use %appdata% at all.
There's a reason why it's called portable.

And thank you for thinking of us x64 users, hope you'll compile it soon.
Title: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: TomBarlow on 2010-02-12 10:26:55
It should be [Options] instead of [Options-] or Options-

Also it kind of makes sense to not include it in portable mode because you need to register that .dll.
Title: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls

Title: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: Pickaxe on 2010-02-13 15:49:14
Okay this new update is much better. I am enjoying it a lot - no more hotkeys, alt+tabbing etc. to control the music.

Functionality is fine at the moment, other than that bug that causes Explorer to crash when removing the toolbar from the taskbar (I even got it once by removing the toolbar without changing the ini) so I'd say if you were to make another version I'd love to see even more customization:

- Removing specific playback buttons and changing their relative location to each other (so for example a user could have REW, Play/Pause, FF at that order and without the Stop button.), possibly adding more buttons (random? not that I have a use for these, just tossing ideas around)
- Custom images for playback buttons, seekbar. Custom font for the song text.
- Option to align song text to the right instead of left, that way long song titles continue to the left instead of right (I doubt this is possible though, due to the way toolbars are implemented in Windows).
- Custom formatting of TextShowTitle (%Artist%, %Album% et cetera, also gets rid of the need for switches like TextShowTime)

btw, some extreme nitpicking: the fourth option in the ini should should be 'vertical'.

Errm, I apologize for triple posting (I really hate forums that disable editing after a certain time period!) but just had another idea - making the song title a seperate toolbar. That way it doesn't cut off to the right on Small Icons taskbars. (I would appreciate if someone can merge my posts.)

I am having a problem with the installation though.  When I run regsvr32 /u Foobar2000DeskbandControls.dll from the command prompt as administrator, I get an error message that says:

I couldn't find much information about this error online.  Any help would be much appreciated!

Anyway to currently remap the controls? I prefer the "back" and "forward/random" commands as opposed to "previous" and "next" (makes going through large playlists with a random order nice!).

If not, this would definitely be a request.

Cool plugin though... It's nice to have sizeable buttons in a the tray now

At what path is your ini file located? What windows version do you have?
You are trying to change settings under "[Options]" section, not "[Options-]", right?
You can remove all "[Options-]" sections and their settings for clarity.

Yes I am. The thing is, the settings don't even seem to change when I select a whole different [options] section. I have tried removing all other sections as well but didn't work. I'm on windows vista x86. The ini is located in foobar/configuration (all my settings are located in the application install folder).

It does work now, but i think it's kind of weird it works this way. The folder did not exist because in foobar preferences i set it to application install folder, so all the config files should be located there (all the other files are).

Thanks anyway, but I think it should be in the same location as all the other config files.

What do you think about a different color for the active button?
For example all the buttons grey and when I press play the button become white...
In this case the status messages are not necessary.
It is only one of my ideas.

I disabled the taskbar control, closed foobar2000, then open foobar2000 and enable again the deskbar, but still keeps showing the buttons and the seekbar.

Code: [Select]
[Options-]
Windows 7, small icons, classic skin / Windows XP, classic skin
MinWidth=350

TextShow=1
TextTop=2
TextLeft=172
TextShowStatus=1
TextShowTitle=1
TextShowTime=1

ButtonsShow=0
ButtonsTop=2
ButtonsLeft=0

SeekbarShow=0
SeekbarTop=2
SeekbarLeft=70
SeekbarWidth=100

Another thing: where to edit the text to show? The colors and the font?
The size of the Deskband? I think is too big.

* Ok, I did something wrong: what I have to remove is the "-" from [Options-], not the ";" from the next line, but now explorer crash and I have to exit it and when I try to enable the deskbar explorer crash again and again.
** I restart the computer and everything is working fine now, no more crashes, I can disable, edit the ini file, and enable it again.

Hi eldarien,
First of all, great work on the x64 version, seems to work with no problems on Windows 7 x64.
2 suggestions, though.
The most crucial one would be to automatically select the toolbar on foobar launch and automatically deselect it on foobar close.
The second would be an option to customize what is shown in the toolbar.
Thanks again, Adam.

PS.
The component works flawlessly with Hebrew text, which is nice.

Something already can be modified by changing the .ini file (show/hide buttons, seekbar, title, time)

Ok people, i spent a little time making a installer for the latest version of this plugin. If you wish you can download it from here (http://cid-fd809eed04544c07.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/P%C3%BAblico/Install%20Deskband.exe). It will detect your O.S. version (x64 or x86), copy and register the proper DLL to your foobar2000 folder, and as a plus, will also move your config file to your foobar2000 folder and create a symbolic link inside the %AppData% so that you can use the plugin with portable installations (as i do) without having to mess with AppData folders.
Please note that due to the fact that only Vista and Seven have the symlink tool built-in, the installer propably will work only on these two O.S's. If there's enough interest and the plugin developer decide to not implement a way to load the .ini from another folder beside the AppData one, i might add XP support too.

If you test it, your feedbak is very welcome.

Works as advertised in Windows 7 x64 
Great work,  BrutuZ

PS.
Perhaps you should take a different approach and allow using an external ZIP with the component (either manually or by downloading), so the installer becomes more generic and you won't have to update it with every version.

I guess i could do that, but honestly, i fail to see the point here. If you have the zip already you're half-way to the complement installation/update. The plug-in doesn't seem to be updated that often, but i'll see what i can do anyway.
Title: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: BrutuZ on 2010-04-02 01:39:49
Ok, i added the .zip thingy, now if you have a file named Foobar2000DeskbandControls.zip sitting in the installer folder, the installer will detect it and ask if you want to use it instead of the built-in files. If this features breaks in future releases it's not my fault, it will probably be because the author changed the current zip structure (.dll files inside 64bit and 32bit folders), in that case blame the author  . I wont mess with the presets though. Btw, download it on the same link as before.

Off: I do hate this time limit to edit posts

Thank you very much for the new version.
A few issues:
- My explorer.exe crashed at some point, though it seems it was caused by a quick open and close of foobar which "confused" it.
- After upgrading foobar to 1.1.8 beta 2, component no longer worked, so I had to repeat the installation procedure.
- It would be nice if you could add the component to the official repository, in order to make tracking changes easier.]

All in all, a great work!

Actually it does, you just had to go to preferences in foobar and confirm the parameters again. I suspect that's a design issue with the taskbar rather than a component problem.

- Yeah, I know  This deskband thing is very crushy by itself, even Windows SDK sample crashed at me with no reason. I am searching how to make it more stable, but even now explorer is restarting automatically by Windows, so it's not that critical.
- I will check this.
- Does anyone know what should I do to add component to official repository? I did not find any guides or instructions.

Excellent, thanks. It works reasonably well with my vertical taskbar, the only thing I'd wish for was a faster ( or adjustable ) scrolling speed

- Ok, I'll add scroll speed option.

P.S. Currently I'm researching how to make it look better on XP with Luna theme, because XP does not support transparent backgrounds on trackbars. D'oh!

As for the component no longer working after a foobar upgrade, Tried again and this time worked perfectly. Anyway, Sandrine's explanations seems fine.
Regarding the explorer crashes, I suspected it has more to do with windows itself rather than the component, but if you could somehow bypass this limitation...
One issue I noticed is scrolling of RTL text (hebrew) not working. Text will just bounce a bit to the right and than a bit to the left, over and over again.

Hello eldarien,
Here's the sample with Hebrew tags that isn't scrolling properly.
Ideally, for English text, text is aligned to left and scrolled to the left (as today).
For Hebrew (and any other RTL text), text is aligned to the right and scrolled to the right.
If the detection can be automatic, that would be perfect...

I've a little issue with the album art support:
(foobar2000 1.1.7, win7 x64, Deskband_2)

All worked fine just up to the point, where I've multiple album arts for one album. It is an album with 3 Disc and for each disc there is a cover. My album art seach pattern is

(something...)
cover.jpg
cover_%discnumber%.jpg
album.jpg

As foobar searches in that order, it displays the file "album.jpg", when I select the whole album with multiple covers, and "cover_%discnumber%.jpg", when I select a single Track. Only Deskband won't do that. It displays my stub image instead. As I expect that the album art would be loaded via foobar, this seems quite strange to me.

Thanks much for this.  Got it going pretty quickly, and works well.  Except: I too am having trouble with displaying album art.  This is what I have for search pattern for front cover art in default ui preferences:

%album%.jpg
folder.jpg
$ifequal($strcmp($left(%path%,5),http:),1,d:\foobar\radio.jpg,)


Only those that conform to the second line are showing up in DeskBand Controls.  That is very few, the way I am set up.  Almost all my art is defined by the first line (I have all album .cue files and jpegs named by album in one big Foobar folder).

I am running XP.

Anything to be done about this?

Thanks again,

Can you implement the display time to static so it doesn't scroll along with the song title and artist?


That would be great !
This static text zone, whose content would be defined with titleformatting in the preferences could be displayed instead of the seekbar for example.

But great component anyway

Album art problem: Thanks much for this.  Glad to have it.  Works well, except that I, too, am having trouble displaying album art.  The search pattern for cover art in my default UI is as follows:

%album%.jpg
folder.jpg
$ifequal($strcmp($left(%path%,5),http:),1,d:\foobar\radio.jpg,)

The only parameter for which DeskBand displays the art is the second, but that is very little of my art the way I am set up.  Most all of my jpegs are named by album and are in one big folder with .cue (by album) and .wav files (by album).  (Strangely, DeskBand doesn't display the "stub" image for those, but rather an image that I can't identify or track down.)

Anything to be done?  Any hints?

I am running XP.

Thanks much,
N.
(The third line search string above, by the way, came from a forum member who was looking to add art to radio streams.)

Thanks for this awsome addon. It works perfectly on Windows 7 32bit. I have a feature request. Can you implement the display time to static so it doesn't scroll along with the song title and artist?


You're welcome. And yes, this can be done - so, maybe in next version

I double-checked my code - everything is correct. This is limitation of foobar2000 API - it does not support configurable paths in album art exposed to plugins. Paths are hard-coded in foobar itself and there are two of them: "folder.jpg" and "cover.jpg". So, if you name your file folder.jpg or cover.jpg it will display in deskband. Nothing I can do here, sorry.
Possible solution is to embed album art inside media files, as this feature is present since foobar2000 v1.1.7

This deskband works great but it has a really annoying bug that makes me crazy.

It's easy to reproduce: Create a playlist of shoutcast radio stations (like 5).  Play the first one and then press the Next button in the deskband quickly several times.  It *always* crashes.

The only workaround is to click Next, wait for the next shoutcast radio to get ready and start playing, and then press Next again, and so on until you get to the station you wanna listen to.  It's a pain when you have a playlist of 20 stations and you just don't want to open the main foobar window.

It doesn't happen using the Next/Prev buttons of the foobar window, just with the deskbands.

It also doesn't happen with a normal playlist, it has to be internet radio stations.

Illegal operation:

Thank you for this excellent plugin!

However, sometimes it crashes foobar when i harass volume bar, but not often

one suggestion:
- add saving/loading presets (drop-down list with save and load buttons instead of current preset buttons would be nice)

I downloaded the upgrade and loaded in the component panel,but now I cannot get it to work. The layout controls are all srewed up.
Even removing the new version and loading the previous one will not remedy the situation.
Help please.

I did unregister the old version, and registered the new on. Deskband  shows up in the toolbar menu,  but selecting it will not have it show up in the toolbar.

Post by: eldarien on 2012-01-05 07:08:08
Hi kraut. Make sure that you updated both foobar plugin (foo_deskband_controls.dll) and deskband (deskband_controls.dll). Both must be uninstalled first (plugin must be removed from foobar). Note that explorer.exe should be restarted after you unregister deskband dll (you can kill it in task manager, then run it again from File - New Task...) You can also try to remove plugin configuration file (located at C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000\configuration\foo_deskband_controls.dll.cfg). Then install new version, run foobar and open deskband panel (deskband is almost invisible when foobar is not opened). In configuration dialog select appropriate preset, click Load and then Apply.

With a Width field for Text1 we would solve that, don't you think?
All the presets have Text1 at the right of the deskband so nobody notices it.  Maybe I'm picky, but I think I got used to have the Text2 (the time) at the right of Text1

Yeah, that was by design from the start. I'll add width to both text strings, no problems

   - restore foobar window if user double-clicks album art or text area
   - context menu
   - text1 and text2 now both have width
   - if no cover-art exists and no stub image defined in foobar deskband will show its stub image

Quick note - with the new foobar2000 1.1.11 beta, you can no longer install components directly from dll.
You need to distribute the relevant dll (foo_deskband_controls) inside a zip (foo_*.zip) or the new *.fb2k-component (a renamed zip).

i was just wondering why this doesn't display all the album art patterns i have set in the display preferences and i found this earlier post....

I double-checked my code - everything is correct. This is limitation of foobar2000 API - it does not support configurable paths in album art exposed to plugins. Paths are hard-coded in foobar itself and there are two of them: "folder.jpg" and "cover.jpg". So, if you name your file folder.jpg or cover.jpg it will display in deskband. Nothing I can do here, sorry.


i do not believe this a limitation of the SDK as many other 3rd party components can display them just fine. ESPlaylist, ELPlaylist, WSH panel mod and facets are just some of the ones i know of.

i can't embed or use cover/folder.jpg because some of my preferences are for radio streams. if you could find out how to add support, that would be great.

No, you will not loose your settings. Plugin preserves existing configuration, but just in case you can backup deskband controls configuration file - it is located at

StealthX: i think that you turned off album art display but didn't move buttons to the left so the space is left unused.
Also, in taskbar options (in the context menu) uncheck "Lock the taskbar" and you will see real deskband dimensions.

I was also just coming to comment that you may want to add to the Read Me txt that if you can not delete the old deskband_controls_x64.dll before installing the latest version of deskband_controls_x64.dll with the latest version of Deskband Controls to close explorer.exe in task manager first, then re-open it in task manager by going to File>New Task (Run...)>explorer.exe and then the file should be able to be deleted.

Hi aeidein. Deskband is invisible when foobar is not loaded. Are you using outdated version? ;-)

ah, you're right.

I was also referring to when foobar is started and playback has not begun, and Deskband shows "[Stopped]" and the seekbar/volume bar.  Would it be possible to have Deskband be invisible when foobar is stopped?  or even when it is paused?

Thanks for a great component!  This is my preferred setup:

Thanks.  My reason is I often leave foobar running in the background, and would prefer the display to be hidden when there's nothing to display (ie nothing's playing).  Sorry if it seems frivolous; I completely understand if you choose not to implement it.  Thanks for reading.

Uncheck "Auto show/hide" in deskband preferences - it is almost invisible without foobar opened anyway. This is a security dialog added in Windows Vista for  deskbands that want to autoshow themselfs.

Thanks, it's not visible at all!

Furthermore, on Windows7 x64, if you enable "Auto/show hide" and "Hide if not playing" explorer.exe crashes sometimes.
So it's better to uncheck the two options

Hi eldarien,
Still enjoying the component very much and using it all the time.
A small request, though - since you already know how to detect RTL languages (Hebrew for example) and scroll the text accordingly, would it be possible to also automatically align text to the right in such case?
Thanks, Adam.

Hope you don't mind me asking, but would it be difficult to implement an option to set the level of text transparency?

Thanks again for a great component.

I think this is a great plugin but it doesn't work on my system.
I have  it installed  and activated. Look at the screenshot:

[a href="http://s14.directupload.net/file/d/2888/jnqb7k64_png.htm" target="_blank"]

My operating system is Windows 7 64bit and my foobar version is v1.1.11.

Thanks for your help.

2 aeidein: I'll take a look, but can't tell right now.

2 LPfreak: Make sure that you installed VS2010 redistributable packages. Also note that deskband is invisible by default when foobar2000 with installed plugin is not opened.

I've tested it on clean win7 x32 and x64 and found no problems.

Can you add an option to change button icon size. I'd really like to have buttons around 48x48.
An option to change the height of the seek and volume bars would be cool too.

I want this because my taskbar is 3 bars tall and the tiny 16x16 buttons don't really fit in.

I've been trying to install this component with no success so far  and i can't find out what is going wrong
I have Visual C++ 2010 SP1 redistributable packages  installed  -  even downloaded the package again and ran a "repair" installation
Register_Deskband.dll is correctly installed
Foobartoollbar option in Taskbar is ticked
I open Foobar and there is no foobardeskband  option in the preferences , neither any relevant .dll file in the components section .It seems like the component has not been installed at all

any hints ? Foobar : Latest version  OS : Win7

edit :  nm , i had not placed the .dll in the foobar folder 
        In other news , can anyone post the settings required for the plugin to look like OP's picture ?

i also faced the same problem earlier but then i uninstalled the component from foobar, updated foobar to 1.1.14a, installed deskband again. and it works!
have you checked the settings tab in preferences>display>Deskband controls ?
to install component copy the dll file in the folder \Foobar\components
initially it did not show in my folder also when i used preferences>components to install.

From the looks of it, this is exactly what I need.
Plus it seems to have a very on-the-ball developer behind it.
(I was happily using FoxyTunes until Yahoo decided to shut it down.)

Unfortunately all attempts at installation result in the following error:
[blockquote]Could not load component "deskband_controls.dll": Unsupported format or corrupted file[/blockquote]

My system:
Foobar 1.1.15
Windows XP sp3
C++ redistributable installed

If I can give you any more information I'll happily do so.
Any ideas what could be wrong?

Ah. Thanks for the reply.
For what its worth the official Winamp deskband controls (ugly, impractical) installed without a problem on this system.

But I do have a tweaked non-Microsoft MSStyles, which involves messing slightly with explorer.exe
Would that cause the problem?

Maybe, who knows. But if you say that c++ 2010 redistributable is installed then maybe it's some other component. You can try to use dependency walker (http://www.dependencywalker.com/) to see if there are any unresolved dependencies (showed in red), but it doesn't use anything special...
Title: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: unbert on 2012-09-25 01:16:53
Thanks for the tip, dependency walker doesn't seem to show anything wrong, from what I can tell.

As a last resort, I tried to install foo_deskband_controls.dll, and it works. Seems to give me what I need. Many thanks!

One remaining problem: I have a vertical taskbar, and the height of the deskband won't go below about 80 pixels.
As a result, it's taking up about an inch of vertical space. It really should be half that or less.
Is there a way to adjust that? I have the taskbar unlocked, obviously.
Title: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: unbert on 2012-09-27 10:26:16
It's not a big deal, by the way, but it'd be nice to tweak it.
Your deskband is on the right. That's the least amount of vertical space I can get it to occupy right now.
(The controls at the bottom are for FoxyTunes. They'll be gone once I get this set up and working.)

I made an account just to share how much I love this plugin; it's a cornerstone of usability for me, and you've done great work on it! Thank you.
I do have a couple thoughts though. The ability to size text and seek bar/volume field height, and add as many separate text fields as desired would be useful for layout fine tuning. You could also add more options for album art fields, but that's pretty minor and many albums don't have them. Thank you again and good luck.

First, thanks for the great plugin.

I use this tool (I highly recommend it) - [edit: I don’t think we care. These tools are ten-a-penny, and overpriced at that.—db1989] -  to download the audio of youtube files. This tool adds a bullet point to the beginning of the title tag of the file.

The problem - The DeskBand plugin doesn't display properly the title if it contains a bullet point. (and maybe other special chars like apostrophe)

Windows 7, Foobar V1.2.3 , DeskBand 0.4.0.0

eldarien, can you fix it ?

Thanks in advance.

not really. you'd expect it to be in the first post but as eldarien has just regular member status, he/she can't edit their first post.

@eldarien, you should ask for developer status. you could then edit your posts. i'd also suggest renaming the file to foo_deskbandcontrols.zip so the components install dialog can handle it.

Hello there, it's me again.

I'm having problems using it on Windows 7, while using the Windows Classic theme. I mean, the CD cover, buttons and bars are there, but I can't see any text. I tried to play with the Deskband Control themes and the text color, nada. However, it was working perfectly using the Aero theme.

Anyone had this problem or knows a way around it ?

Thanks !

Nevermind, corrected this by unloading/reloading the Deskband Controls from the taskbar.

Post by: dgemu12 on 2013-05-04 02:11:50
I've been using it quite a while and love it (great customization).  However I don't think presets are working, if i change the layouts and save it, nothing changes if I try others.  Presets are supposed to save the current settings right? or does it do something else. (Can someone confirm.)

Secondly could you please add an option to use this as an windowshade mode, whilst there is foo_title your layout implementation is far superior (easy to modify attributes, text formats, ability to manipulate seeking and volume).  The ability to make it float instead of dock with the ability to add a color background or image.  Would be kickass, at the moment it is merely awesome.

p.s. I really do appreciate all the hard work you've put in.

Hi,

I only want the previous and next buttons (I already have the play/pause on my keyboard), so I am looking for the options to taking the tweaking a little further:

* selecting which buttons I want
* the possibility to use bigger buttons than these 16px one's

Any chance that functionality like this might come around soon? Else, anyone can point me in the direction of the source?
Otherwise: nice very add-on, but I'm afraid I'm looking for a more minimalistic approach.

Is there a problem with %ispaused% and %isplaying% in DeskBand Controls ? (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/style_images/ip.boardpr/folder_post_icons/icon14.gif)

This text format (which works correctly in Foobar's "playlist view" and in "Default User Interface") doesn't work correctly in DC :

$ifgreater(%ispaused%,0,track_is_paused,track_is_playing)

Clicking the play/pause button just toggles DC's [paused] but the result of the text-format above doesn't change.

BTW - Sometimes if I click the play/pause over and over very quickly suddenly %ispaused% changes.

TIA.

Hi LL25255252!

When deskband controls is paused it does not query foobar for new formatting, and that is why you see what you see.
I guess there is no way to change this in current version, sorry.

Post by: LL25255252 on 2013-09-21 05:09:03
I just forgot to say why I've asked the author to make the %ispaused% work. The main reason is that I want to use %ispaused% in my code for the "text1 format" in order to stop the scrolling of long text1 when the track is paused.
Maybe I'll display "== P A U S E D short-version-of-trackname =="
A short-version-of-trackname will prevent the scrolling.

As of now, this plugin has a built-in option called "show status" which shows [paused] when pausing the track but it doesn't stop the scrolling and it doesn't stay still (it scrolls with the scrolling text).

Importing icons should work, as long as they are valid image files. If not, then can you send me them on email with your OS info?

What about colouring buttons individually?
Tried to import play/pause icons, forward and reverse - did not work, stop button import (ico file) worked ok.
Like to be able to set easily from clicking on the DB control, very clear panels.
Thanks for the nice work

I am able to choose different colours for the volume and position bar. It would be nice to be able to colour the buttons individually or as a group.
Regarding the ico files for the play/pause forward/reverse buttons I am going to try different downloads

Hi there!
New version of my plugin is finally ready (but still in beta) - 1.0.0 beta
I've updated first post, so go see that (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=78234&view=findpost&p=683901).

Bugreports and suggestions are welcome

Thanks for the update!

It doesn't work on my system (Win8.1 x64).

It doesn't work on my system (Win8.1 x64).
If i try to open settings, this warning appears:


You forgot to unblock downloaded zip file. Windows sometimes marks files downloaded from Internet as unsafe and this causes various glitches in downloaded software. Unregister deskband, then delete all it's files, right click downloaded zip, select "Properties" and then select "Unblock" in properties window. Reinstall again, it should work now.
I'll add this instruction to the readme file so that other people will be warned.

Yes, it was blocked, unlocking solved the issue. Damned Windows

Just a question: is there a way to hide deskband only when foobar is closed?
"Hide if not playing" is uncomfortable because deskband closes itself when pausing or stopping the player.

Yes. But you can backup them, they are stored in %AppData%\foobar2000\configuration\

Is there any reason to update if my current version works fine and I am not changing anything?

Probably not. But new version has much richer configuration possibility and more features. It's up to you.

Hey guys, I'm new here.
With the looming death of winamp imminent I looked around for a new media player that has the functionality I've craved for years - which is exactly provided by this plugin, so I rejoiced!

However I'm having a bit of an issue getting it to work - the link between the taskbar software and foobar seems to be one way: if I change the volume in foobar the volume display changes in the taskbar. Same with the position, and the album artwork does show up as well. However the taskbar controls don't affect foobar at all, the buttons don't do anything and the volume/position bars only change the value locally (and are changed back when their value changes in foobar). Also the music text display always says **Stopped** even if a song is playing. If this is a beta issue I'd love to help with the debugging.

Also, not sure if this is a related issue and while working properly the controls work this way, but it'd be nice to be able to change value of the position/volume bars while dragging with the mouse. Currently their value only changes the instant you click, it'd be great to be able to click and drag to adjust the volume more smoothly.

System used: win8 x64

Thanks in advance for a nice piece of software :)

BoyC:
Hi. Can you tell me exact foobar version you are using as well as windows version and language?
It worked fine on all systems with clean windows installed so that must be some software interfering.
For start try to reinstall plugin and/or try to login to windows with different user.

Currently it restores foobar from minimized state.
By "open up" do you mean "launch when it isn't running"?

Post by: BoyC on 2013-11-23 07:42:07
Ok, seems like I had a stuck foobar process that confused a lot of stuff (foobar /show would only work from a command line and not from the shortcut, etc) - not sure what went wrong, but with the process gone it's working perfectly now, both music controls and double clicking to open.

My only issue at this time is with the click and drag thingie, but that's more of a convenience feature.
Thank you for a very cool piece of sw

Ok, Now I understand what went wrong. I still have 2 Toolsbar items, 1. Foobar2000 Deskband Control and 2. Deskband Control even though I ran "Unregister Deskband.cmd" as Admin. Then I clicked Foobar2000 Deskband Control which was an old entry and doesn't do anything anymore.

You might want to have the script deregister old toolbar entries as well, not just the new toolbar. Thanks!

Wonderful work, congratulations!

The only thing that I observed is that at the system bootup, with foobar2k closed (not opening at startup), the controls appear at the taskbar, even with the option to hide when foobar2k is closed.
Indeed, when you close foobar, the controls hide; but when the system boots, the controls are there, even with foobar closed. Is this the expected behavior?

I use Win8 x64. Thank you!

Quick feedback/suggestions:
• When foobar is first started and before playing anything, the album art and sliders still appear even when "hide if not playing" is selected.
• I still can't get transparency (in the font colors) to work.
• Allow option for album art stub image to be "none" (transparent; instead of the default foobar stub)?

The new version is great!

Fix will be available soon.

• I still can't get transparency (in the font colors) to work.

Transparency on aero glass is hard to do. My few attempts to implement it have failed. I will try a few more times, but no guaranties.

• Allow option for album art stub image to be "none" (transparent; instead of the default foobar stub)?

Accepted.

It's not inverted, its mixed. You can choose transparent, white or black to disable colorization for buttons. If you choose red for example, light colors on button image will be replaced with red. If you want to have black buttons it is better to change icons images.

Hi,
I have a problem I don't know how to deal with. I download, unzip and register correctly according to the instructions, the DBC resisters and shows up in the toolbar, is listed in the installed components page but does not show up in the foobar2000 list of components and display options. I can open the setup page from the toolbar, but the display does not change.
When I try to run Foobar with the deskband clicked on in the toolbar list and the control showing, the computer totally locks up, I have to go ctr-esc-del to get to the task manager and disable foobar to get out of the situation.
Also some small display pops up that telling that the app is not recognized and giving a list of related info. (cannot copy and paste due to the crash), although I have installed the necessary microsoft net framework.

The funny thing - a previous but now unavailable first version of DBC 1. worked fine, the problem started with updating to the following beta versions.
I run MS 7 and the latest foobar2000 beta.

Reverting back to the old toolbar - no problem.

Hi kraut!
Try to do the following:
1) Uninstall old version with it's own unregister_deskband.cmd (not the new one).
2) Please make sure that you have unblocked downloaded zip before installation as described here (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=78234&view=findpost&p=849735).
3) Note that new version does not have any options in foobar2000 interface at all. All configuration is done in its own settings page available from right-click menu on toolbar.
4) Make sure that you did not encounter issues described by other users here (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=78234&view=findpost&p=850937) and here (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=78234&view=findpost&p=851515).
5) If nothing helps than I'll need error window screenshot or text to better understand your issue.

Some feedback:
Win7 64bit with taskbar set to hide automatically, deskband controls 1.0.1 blocks the reappearing of the taskbar if you try to make it reappear where deskband controls is on it.

This new version is very good, nice work!

btw, the fonts don't seem to be able to be set below 8.0; I have to set them in the config file manually.  Is that by design?

Hello. I had version 0.4.0 of Deskband. I went through the uninstall instructions in the newest version (1.0.1) zipfile. The toolbar hasn't been deleted from the toolbar menu on the desktop bar. I was wondering if I need an older unregister command to delete that older toolbar. It is called Foobar2000 Deskband Controls instead of just Deskband Controls. Thanks.

Hi g3ne01.
Yes, you need to unrerigister old version with it's own uninstaller.
New version does not use any part of old version, so you can not mess up anything
If you are referring to ability move whole deskband on taskbar than note that this ability was removed and deskband is now always docked to the right side near notification area. That way it is more stable and does not have some redraw issues that was in older version.

Anyway to re-download this old uninstaller? It is a small hiccup but I would like to remove it. I'd be willing to make a new batch file with some help based on the unregister batch file in version 1.0.1.

No need to re-add foobar plugin.
A few steps:
1) Unblock downloaded zip (right click - properties - unblock).
2) Unpack exactly to the same location where v0.4 was installed and run uninstall from there.
3) Kill explorer.exe with task manager and restart it. Delete all v0.4 dlls.

I am running windows 7 X64, I have reinstalled .net to no avail.

For me, doing this solved the issue you mentioned (quote from the readme file):
Quote
Windows sometimes marks files downloaded from Internet as unsafe and this causes various glitches in downloaded software.
So, don't forget to unblock downloaded zip - right click it, select "Properties" and then select "Unblock" in properties window.


But unfortunately after that I have the same problem that BoyC wrote about some time ago:
Quote
if I change the volume in foobar the volume display changes in the taskbar. Same with the position, and the album artwork does show up as well. However the taskbar controls don't affect foobar at all, the buttons don't do anything and the volume/position bars only change the value locally (and are changed back when their value changes in foobar). Also the music text display always says **Stopped** even if a song is playing.

Plugin reinstall, foobar reinstall, login to windows with different user, don't help. Any idea?

Nice!
  Working for me with Windows 7 x64.  It came up with no stop/start/play buttons the first time, but right clicking and going to settings let me load up the appropriate button settings for Windows 7.
  Also it took a little while to show up as an option in the "Toolbars" menu under the taskbar.  So other people who aren't seeing it show up, wait a minute or two and check again.

  Great work, this is awesome!  Thanks!

You can try to register it for current user only. To do so:
1. Open Register Deskband.cmd in text editor and add option /regfile to the end of two lines with regasm command, like this:
Code: [Select]
@echo off
if defined ProgramFiles(x86) (
   %SystemRoot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\regasm.exe /codebase "%~dp0Bin\Deskband.dll" /regfile
) else (
   %SystemRoot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\regasm.exe /codebase "%~dp0Bin\Deskband.dll" /regfile
)
pause

2. Run Register Deskband.cmd file (without admin rights). It should generate Deskband.reg file inside Bin folder.
3. Open Deskband.reg file in text editor and replace every occurrence of HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT with HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes
4. Run Deskband.reg file and approve import to registry.
5. Log off and logon back, than try to enable deskband in taskbar menu.

I love this plugin but it would be nice if it would be able to show me the length of a track since it can display the playback time it is at it would be nice if it could be able to the tracks total duration.

I did manage to break something while messing around - here's the config.js (http://pastebin.com/0VuTQR66) and the error I get (http://pastebin.com/7zfcZs0k).

I think I was trying to create another blank box to hide the right side of the taskbar.

I think I was trying to create another blank box to hide the right side of the taskbar.



you should be able to. if you right click on the taskbar (deskband) and click on settings you should be able to use the interface to configure everything. You can then uncheck the visible mark on the differen trackbars.

-EDIT- Nevermind just noticed you were asking for the borders not the whole thing
-EDIT2- Also make sure that there are no text textblocks using null in the format if you use "" instead of null it doesn't throw the error. This one works config.js (http://pastebin.com/FRivScML)

I'm using that config.js and I still get the recurring error instead of the deskband appearing, and foobar is rendered unusable.  Perhaps it's a problem elsewhere.

Hi aeidein!
Your error is caused by a null Format string in your config. It it in last text block, here:
"Name": "invisiblock: R trackbar",
"Format": null,  <--- This one
"FontName": "Segoe UI"
Don't know how it got there, I'll try to add some checks, as well as trackbar border colors.

Hamallainen: I will add ability to preserve aspect ration in next build.

Post by: aeidein on 2014-02-21 00:13:15
It got fixed, somehow!
I tried fixing/replacing/deleting config.js; I even tried deleting %AppData%\Deskband and reinstalling, but it still threw an error.  Maybe it was still cached somewhere or something?  However, after another uninstall/reinstall (maybe I did it properly this time - I restarted explorer.exe after every step), it went back to the default profile, no error.

Thank you both!


Bug: In floating mode, explorer.exe crashes if you try to change the transparency value of the background color.  Not a big deal personally, since I was just playing around and don't plan on using it that way, but thought I'd let you know.

Suggestion: If the change trackbar border color / remove trackbar border options are implemented, perhaps the user could also choose a background color for the trackbars?

I could also see vertical trackbars being useful (e.g. for vertical layouts when the taskbar is on the left/right side of the screen).  I personally would love to put a vertical volume bar flush against the album art.

Hi,
I used the previous deskband controls without problems. Downloaded the latest version in W7, installed according to instructions. I can display it on the taskbar, configure it fully, but when I try to use it to control foobar, everything locks up, cannot use mouse on anything, I get a notification window and I have to access taskmanager through keyboard with ctr/alt/del to shut foobar down and take deskband off the taskbar.
Restarting foobar then without deskband control works fine.

Plugin works fine but i cant go to settings anymore.

I use Windows 7 64bit


ps.
    Is the plug reads only the images in jpg format (albumart)? PNG format will be nice too. Great plug btw!

Post by: maxim7191 on 2014-03-13 16:27:07
Thank you for this plugin. Works great.

How can I move language panel to position after deskband panel (from right side)?
Drag and drop does not work for some reason.
windows 7
Spoiler (click to show/hide)


bug/suggestion: double-click restores foobar from minimized state works good, but when foobar window running in background and not minimized, double-click does not show it up.
Title: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: eldarien on 2014-03-13 21:08:24
Hi maxim7191
Both your issues are windows limitations.
Docked deskband cannot be moved, and floating deskaband(s) such as language indicator always appears on the left side.
Deskband is hosted in explorer.exe, and in windows one program cannot activate another program (e.g. bring it's window to front). So deskband sends command to foobar that tells it to show itself, and again, windows prevents programs from pop-out to front as they want. I guess this was done to prevent viruses or other malicious programs activate itself without user permission.

radi0n: you forget to unlock downloaded zip. This was many times mentioned here and in readme file. To fix it - remove everything, re-download, unblock and try again. Also, I recommend to copy deskband controls to system disk [C] before install. JPGs and PNGs are supported, as well as any other image format that .NET framework knows about.

After few restarts its working again. I dont know what You mean by 'unblock'. I download, extract with winrar, install foobar plugin and run Register Deskband.cmd. Configured and after restart i cant go to settings. But now is ok.
But plugin still dont read .PNG files.
For example. In catalog with mp3 i have mp3 files and file" 'front.png' - > plugin show only stub image. I change file format to .jpg and plugin show albumart ok.

Open foobar preferences, go to display section / album art and change search pattern for front cover to include front.png

Open foobar preferences, go to display section / album art and change search pattern for front cover to include front.png



I'm blind.. sorry. All works. Thanks again!

Heya,

First off thanks for the plugin/extension, just what i wanted.

Sadly, im failing to understand the 'unblock' part, i've re-downloaded the zip with Chrome IE FireFox Opera and Safari, none of those give me any preferences menu-option on rightclicking the download, let alone the option to unblock?
Could somebody please elaborate? is it maybe related to UAC? (thats already turned off here) or am i maybe supposed to get unblock option on the downloaded zip file right-click? (like, in windows explorer instead of browser) because if so, thats not showing up either

I extract the zip to my C:\ drive, and run the Register Deskband.cmd file, this is what it tells me, always;

I should note that the above error mentions the Foobar2000DeskbandControlsNET directory being in the foobar2000 directory, ive tried to run it at the topmost level in C:\ and in system32, neither changed anything.

- Windows 7 Proffesional 64bit SP1
- Tried to download with latest version of all mayor browsers, no difference
- Got UAC disabled, still tried starting as admin, even tried compatibility (but that wouldnt work since theres no exe)
- My computer already had the Client .Net 4.0 stuff, but even so, tried to 'set up default settings' and even uninstall followed by re-install, no luck either
- I even let CCleaner clean the windows register (since thats apparently a common cause for the Deskband.dll error) but that didn't change things.

Any help highly appreciated!!!! Im very puzzled at where exactly im screwing up..

Right click the downloaded zip file.
Goto Properties in the menu.
Bottom right corner of the General tab will have an 'Unblock' option under the 'Advanced' button if it needs to be unblocked.

I don't think that this error is related to Deskband Controls, but to be sure, try to uninstall it and see if error still persists.

I have no idea what this error means, sorry. Never seen it before.
You can try to find some mentions about this error in System Event Log / Application section - look for explorer.exe errors. If there are some details there post them here and I will try to investigate.

Hi eldarian,

I just installed DeskBand on my Windows 8.1 PC, and it works fine, however whenever I right click and try to go Settings it comes up with this error message:

(http://i.imgur.com/vz1X5WO.png)

I noticed other people getting this error in the thread, but I am certain that I unblocked the .zip before installing it.

EDIT: I checked the .zip again, and the button to unblock the .zip had come back. However, no matter how many times I unblock it, when I re-open the properties dialogue it appears to be blocked again. How can I permanently unblock it?

You have to uninstall it and phisically delete all related files and folders, then redownload, ublock and reinstall.

Hi,

I have version 1.1 and use it in the vertical toolbar on the right hand side of my screen.
Would it be possible to specify that a text block be split over x lines of text in the deskband rather than have it scrolling, which I find very distracting?
Or perhaps, have the text scroll only when the mouse is over the text block in question?

Thanks, Dan

Wow dude.. That's a fantastic DeskbarUI! Do you have a sort of configuration file with all the settings?
Thanks in advance!;)
I also quote the little "side-panel" bug that appears after clicking apply, it happens to me too!;)

1 - Background transparency is a big problem on aero, I've tried..
2 - Yes, that is because it reloads new settings, this is expected behavior. Will look at it though.
3 - Yes, when I will have time.

Yes, you can use $char(13) to split lines, but don't forget to set text block height accordingly. Anything from foobar2000 title formatting scripts should work.

This is really annoying. When editing settings, lets say I'm editing Volume under the 'Trackbars' tab. And I finish editing a value and hit apply, it automatically selects
'Position', so if I try to edit a value again I end up changing the wrong thing. Please fix this its really annoying when trying to edit the settings.

And thanks for this awesome plugin btw.

I love the new update!

<Removed Image>

  • Is it possible to set an "A" (transparency) value for the background colors?  If not, no worries
  • I noticed that after hitting "Apply", the selection jumps to the first item in the list in the left panel.
  • Any chance of getting vertical trackbars (volume bar, in particular)?


Thanks for your work, it's amazing!


I liked your setup so much I changed it to a more compact version to fit my small taskbar ;D

Sure, here: http://pastebin.com/XU5Niv3C (http://pastebin.com/XU5Niv3C)

Thanks!  May I ask you how do I 'put' those settings directly? I have not seen any 'import settings' feature..


I tried to change DuckDuckGo as search engine over Google (right click - search in internet) but I am missing something, since it pops me up the main page of DuckDuckGo instead than the page with the results of the search.
The URL I am currently using in the 'General' tab of settings is the following:
Code: [Select]
 http://duckduckgo.com/?q=search&kp=-1&kl=us-en

What am I mistaking?
Thanks

I've been working around with this plugin and really love it. The only thing is I can't get the ratings to display.    This is what I have:
Code: [Select]
$replace($pad($repeat(★,%rating%), 5,.),., · )

Replacing %rating% with a number gives me the result I'm looking for, but it doesn't seem the pick up the rating tag. Works fine when I use %rating mm%, which is only listed in some of my tracks.
I'm using Windows 7 x64.
Thanks for your great work already.

HA! I discovered that using the DUI the rating also wasn't displayed which lead me on a new track resulting in the following code:
Code: [Select]
$replace($pad($repeat($char(9733),$meta(rating)), 5,.),., · )

Bye now

Post by: Daeron on 2014-07-17 14:48:53
Chances are you have the Playback Statistics component installed, which messes with %rating% as documented in the link below. Solution is to use $meta(rating) instead.

Hey, I'm wondering if this already exists or if it is a possible feature to add somehow? It would be cool to be able to get a tool tip of the artist and song title when you mouse over the controls. I attached a photo of my profile and the config file if anyone wants to use it.

Hello !

First of all, thank's for this plugin, it's awesome !

My player look like this :


#> When there is several element at the same place, there is always one over the second... Maybe add a property for each element, so we can decide the depth of elements... (not clear, I know...)


#> Correct the bug : when we hit "Apply", the selected element jump to the first element..


#> New UI :
See my dropbox folder, with 3 pictures here : https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ovehbpusmafhjtg/...yrktAeviqa?dl=0 (https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ovehbpusmafhjtg/AACdvt9dZ6bWMPnyrktAeviqa?dl=0)

#> The possibility to give absolute values to elements (and not relative to the X-Y position of the element)


#> The possibility to change the default separator of text when "Scroll Text" is enable..


#> The possibility to select multiple elements (with the Ctrl key pressed), then have a "Move" button to move (up, down, left, right) all selected elements in a direction for 1-2 or a variable amount of pixel !

Win7 64bit with taskbar set to hide automatically, deskband controls 1.0.1 blocks the reappearing of the taskbar if you try to make it reappear where deskband controls is on it.

I see that, but have no idea how to fix for now. Will try though.


I have that too, in Windows 8.1. Exact samething.

Also when i right-click DBcontrols on taskbar for configuring it crashes and doesn't show prefs.

Using 1.1.

NokTham - I have investigated your issue. This is happening because explorer process (taskbar) is still running under non-admin user account and foobar is in admin account. Thus explorer process does not have enough permissions to send messages to elevated foobar process (and that is why buttons and other commands does not work), but foobar process still can send messages to explorer process. This can not be fixed as it is windows security rules.

Hi!
You can select vertical layout from predefined presets in configuration window.
After that you can edit controls positions as you like (stack buttons vertically for example).
Note that current implementation does not allow vertical trackbars.
Hope that helps.

Additional tip: change your system's date format to omit the extra zeroes (2.13.2015 instead of 02/13/2015) for saving some extra space on the tray clock.

Oh, on a side note, I have this to report: colored buttons on the yellow/orange spectrum always displayed as full-on red. Might be related to the color overlay method.
Title: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: Liryan on 2015-02-21 11:05:25
Hi, first of all thanks for this amazing plugin.
Got a question: is it possible to have the album art double as a clickable play/pause button somehow? I figured i could just drag the play button onto it and make it invisible, but that makes it unclickable too apparently. And of course the album art with a big button pasted on top isn't very pretty...Any suggestions?

Also, i must say the selection jumping to list's first item on apply is absurdly annoying when trying to set up things and made me do countless mistakes, it would be much appreciated if you could change that

Hi Liryan,
this is not possible in current version, sorry.
Selection jumping issue is in my tasks list.

Just found this, and it is awesome.  This is the best solution to the mess MS made of the mini-player...  I have only just migrated to Win7 (a little late to the party...).  Just thought I would quickly share the compact little player interface I put together within about an hour of installing this great piece of software.  Many thanks - so easy.

For the images, they are font-awesome 24px. You can download the set I used here : http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_...515454560078116 (http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=61857515454560078116) . Then you just need to extract the contenys of the .zip file into %APPDATA%\DeskbandControls (Folder structure has to be Icons/font-awesome/play.png).

I've been working on a Metro-like theme for Deskband. It's not perfect, but I do what I can.

(http://www.netswim.net/sharex/2015-09-22_12-36-02.png)

metro.7z, approx 4KB (http://www.netswim.net/sharex/metro.7z), contains config.js and four PNG images. The config.js file is uploaded from my system verbatim, and is configured to find the icons in C:\icons\metro (though it's trivial to put the icons elsewhere).

I'm migrating computers and managed to import everything to foobar, except for Deskband...

It shows up in my Plugin list, it just doesn't start the mini player at all. I then removed the plugin and attempted a fresh install, but the same happens: it's listed, but does nothing.

I'm using Win7 Ultimate 64, and I have .NET Framework 4 installed.

Any ideas on how to diagnose this? I pretty much can't listen to music anymore without this pretty thing. 
I don't need to import my settings, just being able to fresh-install it would be fine.

Foobar plugin is just one part, there is also a second one - explorer extension and it must be correctly installed. Please make sure that you follow the instructions in readme file exactly. Start from re-downloading zip and unblocking it.

Well, I have issue with your 1.1.2 version,
it does not work properly on my win 7 x64

I dont know how to get it to work right, but version 0.0.4 did work (on my laptop) where the newer one did not.

If you need any further info, tell me how to get it & I will give it to you.

Is there another component required? Only things I downloaded were Waveform seekbar & Playback Statistics, so my foobar is pretty much clean instalation. (The 2nd foobar where this component works has Album list panel, biography view, Columns UI, EL playlist, ES Playlist, HDCD decoder, Channel Spectrum Panel, Lyric Show panel, Mass Tagger, Midi Synth, Pause on Lock, WSH Panel Mod) - is there some dependency?


Oh, also, I did unblock it, unzip it, run the registration, then install the component & restart foobar. I have the framework. My Foobar does not show me he config page but it shows me the plugin as installed...

Hi there.
First, describe what exactly does not work and what steps have you taken.
Second, make sure that foobar plugin and explorer extension dll are from the same distribution (same version). Re-read readme.txt and do exactly as it states.
Note that config window can be shown from right clicking menu on windows taskbar - foobar plugin part itself does not have any interface.

Also may be helpful:
Deskband Controls consists of two parts – foobar2000 plugin that you see in Components dialog in foobar2000 and explorer (shell) extension – that is what you see on taskbar. When you run provided cmd file this extension is registered to the system and it starts within explorer process with the same rights (which is not administrator rights) and if foobar2000 runs with administrator rights extension can not communicate with it due to security restrictions.

The shell part works partly - I see the Deskband controls when looking at tools (dunno how it is in win in english, i have them in CZ), when I try to enable the deskband controls, nothing happens. The dialogue disappears and when I open it again, the change is reverted back.
I run foobar as user and i do see the deskband controls in components. Is there any log file which could I post to tell you some further info?

Great plugin but there are 2 things I would change / add:

Hi, Bero1707
DC volume control is already logarithmic  :)
Good idea with stop after current, thank you.

BTW, I am working on new version, so now is the right time for feature requests  ;)

well when I compare it to windows volume control it seems much better but it doesn't "move" identical as foobar's toolbar controller.

talking about stop after current you can fix problem with it's button (when it's enabled). it stays turned on when the song stops although I don't use / hide that button.

it would be also nice if text blocks could "bounce" from left to right and then back instead of scroll.

and one more thing I would like to have is option to somehow minimize foobar to deskband toolbar or floating window so I don't need tray icon no more. that way I could also minimize to taskbar sometimes when I want without changing settings.

I hope this will give you few more ideas

Hi, just registered to say thanks for making this! exactly what I've been looking for. Should be included with foobar.

Awesome tool. looks great, works well. really useful and love the customisation.

I've attached an image of the setup I made. if anyone can explain how to export the profile.js file I'll post it up here.

Also, if you're looking for features, I'd request a tab in the settings box to choose/customise the right-click menu. A choice over which of the built-in options are shown would be great (e.g. I'd probably hide the "search internet" button), plus some extras (open folder / files in foobar, next album button, play mode settings?). It'd be really cool if users could add custom commands...

Heya, wanted to register to show my support! This is pretty much my favorite plugin for foobar right now. Is it possible to change the text that gets displayed when something has to scroll? By default it puts " **** " at the beginning so you know where the text starts back up, I'd like to be able to remove or change that in the settings.

edit: also, it seems to keep scrolling when you change songs, or something. For example, the song is called 'This is a song with a long title', it scrolls and I switch to the next song when it's at 'ong with a long title **' then a few seconds later I switch back and it's at 'ng title **** This is a s'. Can you reset the scroll position when you change tracks?

This is one excellent piece of software. I tried every available audio player on the Internet and none would provide me with a simple and small toolbar that met my needs, until I found this. I wasn't even a foobar user before, but now I don't see myself using any other player ever. Thanks a lot.

(http://i.imgur.com/nNNoK6l.png)

Two feature requests:

1. Optional tooltip with the name of the song when hovering the deskband. Taskbar space is of utmost value to me, as you can see in the attached image. But sometimes I want to quickly check the name of the song and it would be nice if we had a tooltip. Even better if it's not the Windows tooltip, that one is too small. Something a little bigger and with more contrast would be great.

2. An usability thing. When clicking on the deskband, it takes the focus away from the current window and you can't continue typing or scrolling, you have to click on the window in order to do that. It's a small thing, but it would be great if the deskband could return the focus to the (last) active windows after receiving some input.

I could try to code those things if you have the code available on github or somewhere else.

Cheers.

Make sure that Deskband Controls is selected in Toolbars menu (right-click on taskbar menu). If yes, try to delete config.js from %AppData%\DeskbandControls, than uncheck toolbar item and check back again. I have not encountered this issue myself and it is not reproducible on clean WindowsXP SP3 install, so it must be something in your system. Sorry if this doesn't help.

Forget that. Sorry. The thing is that it will display the Front Cover, but most of my songs don't have one. Instead, they have an "icon" art ( http://prntscr.com/b8ef99 ).

Hello,

I'm using this deskband together with Networx (network monitor), however I would like foobar Deskband to sit on the left and Networx on the right. Is it possible to change the relative position of two deskbands? Alternatively, would it be possible to automatically adapt the band width to the text displayed? I just want to avoid having a big gap between these two toolbars.

Thanks.

Hi there. I've installed win10 on virtual machine, updated it with the latest patches and what I got was build 14393.351.
The same states this page: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12387/windows-10-update-history

I've installed foobar2000 and DeskbandControls and everything is working fine.

Maybe you are using unstable builds of Windows 10 from insider program? It that case I can not help.

Yes, I'm member of Windows Insider Program. When new update rolls out, I'm always downloading it, install and try to run newest foobar and DeskBand. Always the same. DeskBand shows in toolbar menu but it can't be enabled.

So we have to wait for Creators Update, arriving Spring 2017..

As I wrote before, the only one reason why I'm still on build 14393 is DeskBand which is working very well:)

Hello guys.

I've updated my VM to insider build and, as expected, deskband stops working. I have researched a problem a little bit, and it looks like they broke all third-party deskband apps. I suggest everyone who wants to be able to run deskband in future windows versions to upvote this issue in their Feedback Hub App. Search for terms like 'toolbar', 'deskband', 'custom toolbar', etc.

P.S. I've found how to fix this, so to speak - delete HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{668863E6-D688-4115-8F23-BB7F37621A74} key in the registry. You will have to take ownership and give yourself full access.

Can you explain in more details this one:

Also, your setup looks very nice. Can you share it with us?
And how do you feel about making it one of default deskband controls presets?  ;)

  • bars: transparency in background color doesn't seem to work.  if transparency worked, it would be great if the background and foreground colors didn't overlap.
I'm trying to make the volume/position bars be white on white (e.g. #60FFFFFF on #10FFFFFF), but it results in an all-white bar.  The other background colors don't seem to appear as what's specified either (e.g. #FFFF0000 appears the same as #00FF0000); it seems to always be the same opacity as the foreground color.

Also, your setup looks very nice. Can you share it with us?

Is it possible to have option to minimize foobar window to tray by clicking on album art of this plugin, in the future, so I can sometimes minimize to tray (this plugin) and sometimes to taskbar without changing foobar settings? This would also eliminate need for foobar tray icon for me.

Ability to select different song from current playlist in context menu of this plugin would be awesome too. (like MediaMonkey player)

And since "toggle stop after current" now has checkbox I suggest to renaming it to just "stop after current".

i think the "stop playback after current" button is backwards. it's supposed to be filled with color when it's active, but it's filled with color when it's inactive instead

or maybe something in my config got messed up. i installed an older version and it works as expected

Thanks for the update, but I have some questions:
Title: Re: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: eldarien on 2017-03-25 09:07:50
How can I migrate my profile from previous version to the latest one?
At least please add some information about config files location to the changelog. I can't find my old profile anywhere, I was using the version 1.1
All configuration is stored in %AppData%\DeskbandControls.
Version 1 uses config.js for main configuration and profiles are stored in a sub-folder called Profiles.
Version 3 uses DeskbandControls.json for main configuration and profiles are stored as files starting with underscore.
Unfortunately config formats are incompatible. However you can open old config in notepad to grab values :)
By default deskband controls panel is hidden, while player is paused, so after installing this pluging and openning the player you have no way to configure it without starting playing music first.
True. Actually, there is 10px wide invisible deskband that you can click on  ;D
I was planning to add some icon there and show it in hidden mode.
Question to all - any ideas for DC icon that would look good in tray? I'm not good as designer...

I think it would be better as an entry in the View menu of the main foobar window.
You could do a white play button (►) or a "DB" for DeskBand.

I can't get it to install, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, both the installer and uninstaller close as soon as I press any button and the option in Toolbars never appears. I have win7 x64, NET4,  and I have a custom theme installed (with UltraUxTheme). I reinstalled foobar and put it in another drive (not C:), tried opening a cmd window and executing from there, tried uninstalling the theme and going back to the basic win7 one, nothing worked. The %appdata% folder and the f2bkcomponent file are unlocked, UAC is dissabled, running as admin does nothing. Not sure what else should I try.

Edit: Fixed it, omg.

Okay, so the problem in my case was the installer, for some reaseon this bit of code

Quote
rem Check permissions
net session >nul 2>&1
if %errorLevel% == 0 (
    echo Administrative permissions confirmed.
) else (
    echo Please run this script with administrator permissions.
    goto EXIT
)

was closing the .cmd file as soon as it opened, I do have admin rights/permissions, so I'm kind of puzzled as to why it wouldn't let me install.
The next lines that gave me an error were the ones that started with 'xcopy', which moved the files from the Release folder and the uninstaller to the DeskBand Controls one, so I deleted them and moved the files manually, so it looks like this

Quote
:INSTALL
set dc=%ProgramFiles%\DeskbandControls
if defined ProgramFiles(x86) (
   %SystemRoot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\regasm.exe /nologo /codebase "%dc%\Deskband.dll"
) else (
   %SystemRoot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\regasm.exe /nologo /codebase "%dc%\Deskband.dll"
)


I left the rest of the file as is, I'm not sure why any of this happened but the player works great now.

Hi Mecha!

I have not tested it with UAC disabled, probably that is why it fails for you. Will do for the next release, thank you for report.

@eldarien
Thanks, I've managed to migrate my old profile without issues by copying values.

I want to report another small issue, I don't know exactly if it's old or happens only in the new versions:
When seeking the volume bar in the deskband controls to the left, volume level goes to 100% if mouse is right on the left edge of the bar or even outside controls on the left. Although it displays the lowest possible value (it's still filled a bit), if your scroll your mouse one step up you will get from 100% (0dB) to "Mute", then on the next step you will get to ~-45dB.
I think it's a bug and volume level should go to "Mute" (0%) in this case.

So I updated and had the same problem again (cmd automatically closing as soon as I pressed any key) activating UAC and running as admin fixed it, but it still failed to copy the files. Tried to copy the files manually but that is impossible (they're installed now and explorer is using them) so I tried to copy them with the command window and then I realized what was going on.

Apparently some windows commands like xcopy and others don't work when you have a japanese system locale lol, so I changed it back to US english and now everything works just fine.

Thanks for the update btw, loving your plugin so far  :)
Title: Re: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: Mecha on 2017-03-27 15:51:08
I ran into a somewhat minor issue, for some reason every time I open foobar it tries to install the plugin even though it's already installed.
I'm not sure if this is intentional or something that should go away after the first install, so I tried uninstalling the plugin and installing it again and I noticed that I simply can't install the plugin from the fb2k-component file nor after the first post-install launch.
If I open foobar with admin rights the installer doesn't appear and if I open it without admin rights the installer does appear but it does nothing (so the integrated installer doesn't work at all cause you can't give it admin rights).
The only way I can install the plugin is running the Install.cmd file in AppData as admin, but then as I said before, every time I open foobar it tries to install it again unless I open foobar as admin.

Not a big issue really but it can be a bit annoying if you open and close foobar a lot, also the system locale had nothing to do with it, it's simply a UAC issue it seems.

Thanks for the continued updates!  Couple things:

* Sometimes when resuming from sleep (on a laptop), the deskband will appear, even though music is paused and "hide when not playing" is enabled.  To get it to hide again, I need to start playing music, then pause it again.

* Transparent background colors don't seem to work in the tooltip (I'm trying to add some padding to the bottom).

I'm glad you included playlist in context menu although I expected cascaded playlist view (sub-menu) when I saw changelog.
Maybe in some future version you can add option for that?

Hi everyone. I have some issues with this awesome plugin. After first installing (ver3.2.0) everything works fine. But after reinstalling Windows (full and clean reinstall) and updating plugin to ver3.3.1 the plugin don't work fine. It appears on my taskbar, but everytime i want to switch track (for example) it kind of freezes cursor, sometimes it crashes explorer.exe and i can't get to plugin' settings - the pop-up window appears but everything freezes and pressing the settings leads to explorer.exe to crash.

Hi OnToshCORE!
Do you have a very large playlist in your player by any chance? I need more details of your setup to be able to reproduce.
Also, try to delete configuration located at %AppData%\DeskbandControls and see if that helps.
Title: Re: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: OnToshCORE on 2017-05-23 11:08:44
eldarien, now it works, thanks. But there's a nuance - i've delete deskband.json (or smth like this) in c:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\DeskbandControls\ and after that everything starts to work normally. Deleting foobar with deskband folder didnt help at all (i'm using portable installation).
So great job, mate. Thanks for your help and for your awesome plugin! I've been searching for something like this for so long.

I just updated from 1.1.2 to the newest version. I'm happy about the added tooltip but I am getting an error message every launch, when manually skipping tracks, stopping playback or closing fb2k. Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't help. I made a picture and saved the details (see attachment).
Translation of the Popup: "Unhandled exception in a component of the aplication. [...] The object reference wasn't defined on an object instance."

Post by: AlanWake on 2017-06-01 17:55:55
Thanks for your quick response.
But I have to correct myself; launching foobar won't throw an exception, it's launchning Windows / the exlporer or simply un- and then repinning Deskband to the taskbar. It is also a slightly different message (pic1). Moreover, double click won't open foobar from tray and right click menu is missing "console" and "settings" (pic2) after pressing the popup's "OK". Reinstalling the component will fix this problem until reboot (but not the other one).
Is there a way to unistall the toolbar completely? Simply uninstalling the component in foobar2000 will still leave the toolbar in windows. The old version came with two files for installing and uninstalling it, but these aren't working after the update.
I also included my config, but using the default one had the same problems.

Firstly, thank you very much for your hard work on this excellent module. However, the new version/versions (it's been a while since I last installed Deskband) breaks functionality with foobar portable mode. Maybe I'm somehow doing it wrong, but some assistance would be greatly appreciated!
Title: Re: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: eldarien on 2017-06-02 08:19:32
AlanWake - should be fixed in 3.3.2. Thank you for detailed report. Also, you can find relevant uninstall.cmd in the Program Files\DeskbandControls\ folder.

Hi Scylla. Please tell me more what exactly breaks and how would you like it to function. Keep in mind that DC integrates into explorer.exe which is a system component, so component setup must be launched for it to function properly. Also, all configuration is saved in AppData local folder due to the fact that deskband remains installed and available even after foobar2000 itself is removed from computer (e.g. portable flash drive removed).

After installing the fb2k component, a cmd UAC requesting admin rights always launches together with foobar (not just the first launch after install). Even after that, Deskband Controls does not show up in the taskbar selection menu, where it used to be. This also happens when I manually extract the dll into foobar's components folder.

Am running the latest version of Windows 10, and foobar 1.3.15 portable.

It would be nice to have an ability to make seekbar's visible height 2 pixels less, but make the clickable area 2 pixels bigger than the visible area. It will allow to seek while clicking on the most bottom pixels on the screen, and it will look better at the same time (in my case).
Title: Re: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: VEG on 2017-06-03 11:46:30
These settings can have names like "padding top/bottom". So, the position bar visually will be a bit smaller, but active area will be bigger. And it will be much easier to click on it while visually it can be just a few pixels tall.

Yes, I'm using a tool called Classic Start Menu to make the taskbar color fully transparent. Sadly, the wallpapar I'm currently using is a bit bright behind DeskBand, so the text is hard to read. And changing the text color would ruin the look ^^

Post by: fuffi on 2017-09-07 16:48:22
Hello and Thank You for this Componet! Its very flexible in customizing. Superb :-)

I stumbled upon it, because the AdvancedControls stopped working recently and I was looking for a software newer than 2011 :-)

Gladly, I found this peace of software for my Windows7 64Bit System.

Of course, I have some questions :-)

a)
How will it be possible to have those two "links" on the bottom of the tooltip window clickable?
(https://picload.org/infonail/dggoogal/screenclip.jpg) (https://picload.org/view/dggoogal/screenclip.jpg.html)

b)
Double-clicking on the Album Art in the Taskbar will shows up foobars main window.
Is it possible to hide foobars main window again with another double-click on the Album Art?

b1)
Can you add a setting for just open the foobar windows with a single click, instead of double clicking?


c)
I like the settings "Hide if foobar2000 is not running: no" and "Hide if not playing: no"
how is it possible to start foobar2000 if I double-click on the Album Art/Stub Image at the Taskbar?
start f2k?

d)
I'm on foobar2000 portable mode.
While trying to test the deinstall (via uninstall.cmd), I recognized, that after the batch was run, no explorer.exe was startet again. That leaves the Windows OS & me without any icons or Taskbar 8-} I solved the issue with just starting another explorer.exe process and all Icons and Taskbar were visible again. Maybe you could check in your batch if there is an explorer.exe process after restarting to finish the deinstallation? It'd help users which don't know what to do. (There are plenty of threads on the stackoverflow site afair)

e)
I'm on foobar2000 portable mode.
How is it possible to enter a Stub image relative to the foobar2000 installation folder?
My foobar2000 install is here: E:\m\p\f2k\
My stub-image is located here: E:\m\p\f2k\foo_httpcontrol_data\kevo\nocover.jpg
Your Installation is here: "C:\Program Files\DeskbandControls"

Maybe something like "Stub Image Path" = "..\..\foo_httpcontrol_data\kevo\nocover.jpg"
while "..\..\" is relative to the E:\m\p\f2k\user-components\foo_deskband_controls\ folder

f)
I guess, its not a good idea to install your components dependencies (*.dll + uninstall.cmd) to the portable device, as it leaves a bad situation, if the portable device is removed without deinstalling the dependencies first, BUT can we define another location for %CommonProgramFiles% anyways?

g)
Is it possible to have the tooltip only showing up, when hovering over the Album Art, *not* over the playing controls?

h)
Can you add a simple import/export settings function to the context menu (or the settings)? so that the usersettings/profiles can be imported from one system to another.

h1)
how can I remove a profile?


Well....needless to say, that your component is still running great!
Thanks again.

Hi fuffi!

Thank you for such a nice list of suggestions! I'll see what I can do, but can't promise when.

I have install it but I don't see it in the preference :( I use foobar2000 portable. I dream that someone can create a version of DeskBand Controls that work with the foobar portable version, and without install file in my PC. So, exactly all the other component ;)

I was there too 8-) and did not find anything...
because...
DeskBand Controls is a windows utility/feature/program/whatever. It works in your Windows Taskbar.
Its not located within f2k.
The f2k component is "only" (as far as I understand) needed to install some important files to your windows installation and check each f2k-start if the install is correct. Thats mainly all.
You can configure the tool (not the component) as described in the help, which was very helpful :-)

For the portable part. Mainly, it works with the portable f2k version, BUT (big but) after closing f2k, you need to manually remove/uninstall the installed DeskBand Controls from your windows host. There is an uninstall.cmd in the install-dir of the DeskBand Controls. Use it, and everything is gone, the host computer is clean then. (Configs stay in the windows registry, which is good for you, but not for the host...)

If uninstalled, the next time, you start f2k, the DeskBand Controls are installed again (via the component)...but what to do. its a great tool!


(Maybe the developer could add a switch to the fine component, that -when f2k is closed- hides the DeskBand Controls in the taskbar. (you can also hide it manually, but we are all lazy...) That would be a good compromise between uninstalling it every time the user quits f2k, and leaving a DeskBand Controls window open, which cannot be used without f2k, and might irritate the host)

Hi Starsam80! Can you share your config and provide more details about your setup? How many is a "bunch of songs" in your case? How many songs are in your playlist? What OS version are you using?

Sorry for the late reply, I never got a notification. I've attached my config and my OS is Windows 10 version 1607 x64. Since it happens over time, roughly 100 songs? You don't have to play through the entire song, just clicking next a bunch of times will also work. I also notice it leaks when you right click the taskbar and disable and enable the "Deskband Controls" toolbar a bunch of times and the amount of songs it plays doesn't matter.

I also don't know if this helps at all, but are you freeing the memory used for the album art? When I tried to debug it for myself, a bunch of memory allocated is used for the album cover, but I can't tell if it is being freed.

thanks for all the explanation but for me it is too complicated and not worth it because it is not a "fundamental program". I hope that in the future someone will rewrite it and that it will function as a normal component of foobar200

New to foobar2000. I liked this plugin so much I just made an account just to thank you - this plugin is amazing.
I really appreciate the level of customization of the layout.

Future update ideas:
- For users running multiple monitors, allow them to choose which monitor/taskbar for Deskband to appear on. If i want Deskband to appear on a secondary monitor taskbar, my only option (that I'm aware of) is to make it a floating window and find the exact coordinates on the secondary monitor's taskbar (I am on windows 10).
- *This one is definitely a luxury*: Have the playlist popup, like the current tooltip album art, with a customizable interface and ability to scroll through the entire playlist and select whatever song (possibly even edit song order via dragging). I'm aware of the playlist that appears when you right click Deskband, but if you want to see the whole playlist you either have to open foobar or make the context menu very very long.

A bug that I encountered:
- I accidentally made the height and width of the album art to 0 and 0 (the one that appears in Deskband, not the tooltip album art). This caused explorer to crash.

Anyways, only positive things to say about this plugin! Greatly appreciate your work on this, can't thank you enough!

  * Version 3.4.0
  - Fixed display of '&' symbol in playlist.
  - Fixed admin rights detection in install scripts when Server service is disabled.
  - Fixed crush when album art size is set to 0.
  - Changed volume control handling to better match with foobar2000 volume control behaviour.
  - Fixed memory leak in album art handler.

U're right :-) Great.

Another question about profiles:

When I load a profile, say "test1" and then close the settings and open it again, the profile <new profile> is shown.
Thats irritating.
Think of a user which has 4 presets and boots the computer after a long period. How would he know, whats the name of the actual loaded profile is? It would be userfriendlier if the name of the loded profile would be visible in the pulldown menu after starting the settings-windows.

Anyway I actually think foobar's volume step setting should be like of this component cause this component has more accurate volume slider.
For example when slider is in the middle it actually sounds like half of maximum volume unlike foobar's slider.

I'm deeply sorry, I had to deinstall. Too many errors made working with windows nearly impossible (error popup was always in front of all other windows and needed to be clicked away).

Next time I'm near the computer, I will try to get the settings.

Please tell me, what do you mean by "and also image that is causing problems". The problem occoured not only on one single song.
I hope, I can find those songs again....

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 ?
Title: Re: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: fuffi on 2017-10-07 13:19:11
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...

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.
Title: Re: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: fuffi on 2017-10-08 18:29:26
(cannot edit my post....,But I did find a way to reproduce the error.)

I use the Preview (foo_preview (https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,74085.0.html) 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) :-)

  * Version 3.5.0
  + Support for transparent background for texts in tooltip.
  + Support for text shadow.
  + Ability to delete profile in settings.
  + Ability to configure path to folder with foobar2000.exe.
  + Support for relative paths (to fb2k root folder) in album art stub image and button icons.
  + Ability to detect HTTP links in texts and open web browser on click.
  - Fixed stub image appearing for a moment when switching tracks.
  - Fixed size issues when in floating window mode.
  - Fixed some album art handling code.

The main new feature of this release is that we can now have nice looking tooltips, like this:

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

When I'm skipping a song (from within the default f2k control button: next) the stub image is shown for about 500ms.
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 (http://www116.zippyshare.com/v/0IXINViz/file.html)

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 (http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_deskband_controls) 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.

Great plugin and I love the customizability! Here's my version of the controls. It's a minimalist set-up that gets rid of all the media control buttons except play/pause (it's now the album art). It's also intended to work with the default Windows 10 taskbar height (~46 pixels). Enjoy :)

Title: Re: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: vinkear on 2017-11-26 18:08:43
I came across this yesterday and i'm really loving it. I changed it a bit in the settings, The only thing I couldn't change was the mouse wheel control. Is there a way to make the mouse wheel scroll the Position bar instead of the Volume bar? I checked almost all the thread and couldn't find anyone asking this or how to do this. And if it's not posssible can you consider adding it in the future?

Hi eldarien,

Thank you for your great effort in developing this plugin! I really like it and it makes a great complement to the foobar2000 player.

Unfortunately, although it used to work perfectly for me, I don't really remember since when, the controls don't work anymore.

The deskband seems to be able to retrieve current status from the main foobar2000 player, yet unable to control the player to change songs, change volume, seek a specific time in a song etc.
Functions like hide until foobar2000 is playing, retrieving volume level or playing position (position bar), album art works, but things like song name/album name retrieving, changing volume level or playing position, does not work at all.
The song text just get stuck in ""*Stoppped**", yet strangely the seek bar and the volume bar responses to the foobar2000 program's current state if I change them in the main program.

No error message seems to be appearing in the deskband console.
I tested it after a complete clean install of the plugin with the default settings profile and it still behaves in the same strange way.

Pressing buttons on the DeskBand does not crash anything, they just do nothing. The animation of the button press is still there though. The same goes to the seek bar and the volume control, dragging the seek bar does moves the position of the bar, yet the main player does not respond to it, and the seek bar then revert back to the position decided by the main player.

It just feels like the DeskBand is accessing a 'read-only' mode or something like that, any idea on what the problem will be? It used to work perfectly and I don't remember that I changed any settings that are significant, neither on the foobar2000 main player side nor the deskband side.

Hi,

when I install deskband controls I can change the volume with the mouse wheel, but only until I restart the pc. Then the mouse wheel does not work anymore until I de-install and install deskband controlls again.
What could cause this behavior ?

Hi Alexander.

Deskband controls uses documented WinApi mouse hooks to receive wheel events. If that had stopped working then that must be some third party software involved (weird mouse software/driver?).

Post by: rocker5743 on 2017-12-24 00:13:46
Hi.

I went into the Desktop Control setting to remove the Album Art from popping up (or so I thought). I just removed the actual art from showing, the box still pops up. But since doing that I can't go back into the setting at all. When I try to everything lags, explorer crashes and resets, and I am not able to go back into the settings. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the component itself, and foobar overall, but I still can't get back into the Desktop Controls setting menu. Running Windows 10.

I can't even hover over the taskbar menu for more than a few seconds before explorer has to reset. It happens each time I use one of the controls too (next song, pause, stop, etc.) but it doesn't affect playback whatsoever.

Hi, rocker5743!

This is known issue, will fix after christmas/new year. Sorry about that.
Meanwhile, you can go to C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\DeskbandControls\
and delete DeskbandControls.json or edit it and set AlbumArt / Visible = true in Tooltip section.

Hi klaussrich!
Deskband Controls can only be displayed on taskbar or as a floating window.

Hello,
can anybody tell me, how can I move the DBC to the top of my taskbar?
(I'm using a vertical taskbar on the left of my monitor)

it is now like that:

and should be like this:

I cannot find how to "swap", only move the DBC.... dragging does not help.

Watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FsyCzEymv9g
See how when you right click on some file every "command" like "Add to archive", "Add to Winrar.rar, "Compress and email" has its own space on right click menu. After applying this option all "commands" are under "Winrar" option in right click menu.
Same can be done here so every song would appear under "Playlist" on right click menu.

Hello and thank you eldarien for making this great little plugin, love it a lot!

I have two questions. Are you able to have transparent background for the floating window mode? Also, when checking the option for hiding the window/controls when playback is paused/stopped, has any of the recent versions fixed the issue of having a 16x10 small box left when playback is paused/stopped and having that hiding option checked?
I love this floating window mode as I have a multi-monitor (triple monitor) setup and using a negative x-coordinate enables me to have an always-visible bar containing the "artist+title" showing when streaming radios with foobar2000. Having it totally hidden when paused/stopped along with a transparent background to better blend-in would make this perfect for my current use case :)

Thanks in advance!
Title: Re: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: eldarien on 2018-02-06 22:56:04
Bero1707 - I see. Well, expect this soon, I guess :)

Hi darkonyx! Yes, floating window supports transparency, but in a little different way. First, you can set opacity setting to something like 0.7, this will make everything translucent. Second option is to toggle "use transparency key color (fuchsia)" option and the select background image. Regions on image with key color will be fully transparent, so you can have a non-rectangular bar now. But I agree, floating window needs some fine-tuning. Please share more your use-cases if you can, I need some ideas here... I'll see what I can do with a leftover box.

Just loaded 3.6.1, restarted my machine, and now deskband controls are not working.  Will not start or stop or scroll.  Foobar otherwise working fine.  Windows 7 home premium (32-bit), Foobar 1.4 beta 6.

Really don't have a clue as to the problem.  Nothing else has changed.

EDIT: I'm sure I have the same problem as Comcraizer, 04 December 2017.  It's too bad, because I need to run Foobar as administrator in order that ASIO behaves properly.  That did change.  Any chance this will change, and that Deskband Controls will run as Administrator?

Thanks much.

Hit Windows logo key

See the icon. Right-click it, select Run as administrator.

Hello Eldarien,
is this regarding to my question (https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,78234.msg951511.html#msg951511):
Quote
can anybody tell me, how can I move the DBC to the top of my taskbar?
?
I made the DBC window floating, but  I can't get it stay on top of the taskbar. If I click any icon on the taskbar, the DBC window disapears under the taskbar and is not visible anymore.

Am I right, that it is not possible to position the DBC window on top of a vertical taskbar, when Display Mode is set to "Deskband"?
Is this a windows OS limitation?

EDIT: cascading playlist is very useful! thanks to you and bero1707.
Title: Re: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: eldarien on 2018-02-12 10:42:19
fuffi - Look in General Settings. "Deskband Mode" and "Display Mode" are different settings. Set "Deskband Mode" to "Floating", "Display Mode" to "Deskband".
I know this is not very clear, I will merge them into one with next build.

Remove deskband from taskbar and add it back. Unlock taskbar. You should see drag grip and you should be able to move deskband to any position on taskbar. Also try to move other toolbars with grip, especially the one that holds app buttons, drag it near the clock, it should swap with deskband.

"Remove deskband from taskbar and add it back" <- That was the trick!
Thank you very much! Now it works.
Otherwise there are not draggrips to move DBC.


Some comments/requests below :
It would be nice to limit the tooltip triggering to the album art region, so that it is not triggered for instance when adjusting the volume or just clicking on a button.
This is something, I really love to have, to not always pop up the tooltip, when skipping to the next song.

Forgive me, for wasting your time....

I didn't realized, that the path to the stub image started with ".\", so it would search relatively to the root folder, set up in the "foobar2000 plugin" configuration page at "Path to folder with foobar200.exe" (that was my guess)
I also didn't realized that the stub image for the tooltip had its own path-configuration, with the correct path "C:\f2k\..." set up, so it had to work.

Well, thanks to widerock, posting a comment from 2012, I had a clue :-))

@eldarien:
can we have our own buttons, additionally to the stop/play/pause/next/prev buttons?

Say, I have a component "foo_preview" installed, and like to have a button in DBC to switch on/off the preview mode in foobar2000.

would that be possible? (also to have different buttons for each state of the component, like the play/pause button, which shows different images, when playing or pausing)

Well,
another mystery 8-)

I'm wondering, why there are white lines left and right from the top of the cover art, while there is none in the image.

You can see it in the opened tooltip window, right to the cover art image inside the top of the taskbar.

(https://picload.org/thumbnail/dadrogcr/2.jpg) (https://picload.org/view/dadrogcr/2.png.html)
Here (https://www.discogs.com/release/2797736-Echocord-Jubilee-Comp-Part-3/images) you can find the cover art for the playing song (https://www.discogs.com/x/release/2797736).


playing another song (https://www.discogs.com/x/release/2797718), you can see (https://www.discogs.com/release/2797718-Echocord-Jubilee-Comp-Part-2/images), that there are no white lines in my setting.

(https://picload.org/thumbnail/dadrogca/1.jpg) (https://picload.org/view/dadrogca/1.png.html)



So, where do the white lines come from?

I'm refering to those "white lines" at the left and right:

The deskband constantly takes up 3% of my cpu with redrawing. Example stacktrace: http://chronial.de/misc/screenshots/0295-ocpzts6y.png
This happens independent of whether there is something to redraw or not.

darkonyx - I did not find any problems with floating window (no leftover box, etc.). Are you using a very old version?

Had version 3.3.3 and updated to 3.6.1, now there's no leftover box when not playing (and not present when foobar is closed down). Thank you!

White lines are on the image. If "Preserve aspect ratio" option is disabled the whole image is stretched to fit specified size, in your case it is stretched to be squared. You can verify it in any image editor if you like :)
Regarding buttons for other components - I have no idea how that could be done right now...

Can not reproduce your issue on my i5, CPU usage is always 0% for me, with minor spikes to 1% when label scrolling is used. No plans for open source for now. I can extract label drawing code into sample project if you really want to look at it, but I highly doubt that it can be much optimized, to be honest...

Thx for looking into it. If I find the time, I will see whether I can reproduce it on clean VM. Maybe its connected to something else I have installed.

I don't think the issue is that the rendering code is too slow. I think the issue is that it runs way too often.

I'm very happy with cascading playlist menu however I noticed some small bugs.

Bug #1: My settings are set to show 15 songs before current playing song and also 15 songs after song that's playing. When I play a song from beginning of the playlist (one of first 15 songs) fewer songs are displayed before the track that's currently playing because there's less than 15 songs to show but more songs are displayed after the song that's currently playing so the total number of displayed tracks is the same (31). This does not work the same way when I'm at the end of playlist. If there's not enough tracks to display after the currently playing track more tracks should be displayed before currently playing track (so the total number of displayed tracks is 31 in my case). This bug also appears on non cascaded playlist menu.

Bug #2: I have some playlists in my foobar displayed as tabs so I can switch between them. When I play a song from one playlist and switch to another playlist and minimize foobar first playlist plays normally as it should until I choose another song with deskband controls playlist menu (cascaded or not). Song names from the first playlist are displayed but it plays a song from second playlist. It should play song from playlist which song names are displayed (first one in this case).

I noticed my mouse freezing for a second when some songs start. After a bit of testing I found it's caused by large cover art. The 6MB 3000x3000 cover that came with Memory Lame was causing the issue even with cover art not being shown. I'd like to be able to disable Deskband Controls from reading the cover art at all.
Title: Re: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Post by: kode54 on 2018-05-27 04:48:03
The player itself reads cover art whenever something in the player, possibly even stock components, accesses cover art. 3000x3000 cover art is 36MB of RAM, then resizing it to whatever common size something requests, then caching the result.

Thank you for building this toolbar item.  Under Windows 10 x64 I got this to work.  May I suggest an update to your !readme.txt ?  First the toolbar is not the Windows toolbar (as with Advanced Controls Foobar) but rather the Foobar toolbar which is not obvious possibly for new users.

Right click next to HELP in the Foobar menu then choose "Buttons" as there is no menu item called Deskband Controls.  This was how I can got this component to work.  thank you for your efforts

2 Gierwant:
Deskband controls settings are stored in c:\users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\DeskbandControls\DeskbandControls.json
You can safely delete this file and uncheck/check toolbar option in taskbar right-click menu to apply defaults.

2 Revup67:
But it is a Windows deskband and has nothing to do with toolbars that are inside the foobar2000 player window.

2 Mirage-:
This must be your system specific issue as I did not encounter explorer crashes on any of my (or my friend's) computers.

Hi thanks for the note.  My mistake, the "buttons' feature is not part of Deskband.  Ultimately Deskband within the Foobar toolbar never shows up though the Deskband Component installs successfully within Foobar 1.4 (shows up in components).  I did find the complete extraction in the roaming folder as suggested.  I followed the uninstall instructions exactly.  Removed the component in Foobar.  There was nothing to disable in Toolbar so I simply did a "reset' in toolbar as a just in case to default values.  Ran the uninstall as an Admin and it showed success, ran Explorer.  I thought all was good until I opened Foobar and got this error:  ABORT : IGNORE "RETRY as a component failed.  After looking around for some time I found a new folder in the Roaming folder called "Pending".  In the Pending folder was the Component for Deskband with Zero bytes.  After removing this file and the pending folder, Foobar opened again normally as if nothing had ever occurred.  I hope this helps you as I was unsuccessful in getting Deskband to work on Win 10 / 64 bit /8gig ram / SSD drive. - thank you

Revup67 - Unfortunately your description is not enough to understand what went wrong in your case. The normal process should look like this:
1. Download component file from here: https://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_deskband_controls
2. Right click this file, select "Properties". In the properties window find "Unblock" checkbox and check it. Click ok.
3. Double-click component file. foobar2000 player should open and ask you "Do you want to continue?". Click "yes".
4. Component will appear in components list (unloaded). Click "Ok". foobar2000 will ask if you want to restart it. Click "Ok".
5. On foobar2000 restart a UAC window will open. Allow it to proceed (click "yes").
6. A console installer will run. There should be no errors in it. If it says "Types registered successfully. Installation completed." then you  are good. Close console window.
7. Now, right-click on taskbar and in "Toolbars" submenu there should be "Deskband Controls" item. You may have to wait a few seconds and right-click taskbar again as it may not appear instantly in the list.
8. After you clicked on "Deskband Controls" menu item start some music and you should see the deskband.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the continued assistance.  Steps 1-6 there was no issue on multiple attempts.  Deskband Controls just doesn't appear in the toolbar menu.  I realize not every PC is the same and perhaps one other component is causing the toolbar not to appear or perhaps some other nuance.  All the green text prompts are in place as per the instructions - no issues except as above and I can assure you when uninstalling the uninstall did not complete and a Pending folder shows in the Roaming component sub folder as mentioned.  Until I remove the deskband component file and the Pending folder Foobar prompts with Abort:Ignore:Retry - I'll just stick with the default player that's fine - cheers

Hello!
I tried reinstalling Deskband controls after happily using them for a long time.
Sadly I had to move my OS to a different drive (harddisk failure), so I went with a big upgrade as well.
That means that I have a multiple monitor setup today and that leads me to a possible error with your component.

After installing (succesfully) I can't make the deskband toolbar show up.
When I check the checkbox, it sends an error message (shown below).
I have two fullHD monitors next to each other not exactly as a rectangle (one is a bit lower) so that might mess up with it as well.
(have a loock at the 2nd screenshot to see more (the monitor numbered as 2 is the main one)

It seems since W10 1903 upgrade I rather often view the .Net error message somehow related to DC - while error window stays on screen the taskbar is unresponding. Usually happens after exiting a fullscreen game, independently of foobar running state. It may be somehow related to my display settings (3840x2160; 175% scale) or not - just a guess.

Request of adding function:
Ability to disable "Mouse Wheel Mode" completely.

Currently in the "Deskband Controls Settings", the "Mouse Wheel Mode" could be set to "Volume" or "Position". I want to set it to "Disabled". So mouse wheel does nothing.

Reason I want this function: I am using a software called "Volume2" to control system volume. Whenever I move my mouse to the very bottom of screen, I can use mouse wheel to adjust system volume. So I accidentally change foobar2000 volume as well, a lot.
I tried to avoid the area where deskband control bar is, after 1 year I still couldn't completely avoid it. I tried to edit the .json settings file, remove whatever is after the "Mouse Wheel Mode", won't work.
(Using DeskBand Control 3.6.1, and Foobar2000 1.4.6, both the latest version.)

One feature request: would it be possible to have the "Stopped Text" setting be able to use formatting tags like the "Format" and "Paused Format" fields, but for the song most recently played/stopped? The idea being, when I hit the "Play" button on a stopped playlist (or a stopped single song), it's going to start with a particular song, and it might be nice to know what that is at a glance without having to switch back to fb2k. Thanks!
