its working now :-)

It is an ease to get informed by f2k now, when you offer an update for your great component! very pleasant!
Hooray to the new f2k feature!

I have two questions regarding album artwork column:

1)
When enabling the artwork, its the first column in the playlist.
It seems, placing/moving the artwork column is not possible, or is it?
How can I move it to the last column at the right of my playlist?


2)
My grouping is
Code: [Select]
[%DISCOGS_RELEASE_ID%][ %ALBUM ARTIST%][ - %ALBUM%][ '('%DATE%')']
It looks like this (screenshot) and I'd like to not have the DiscoGS-Release-ID shown, but grouping by it is important for me.

Is there a way to not show the result of [%DISCOGS_RELEASE_ID%] in the artwork column without removing it?
(Maybe by adding a new field to the edit group configuration, which would allow the users to set up an invisible formatting string only for the grouping AND a second formatting string which is visible and will be shown in the playlist? dunno if this is not to confusing, it is just somehow inconvenient to have the Discogs-ID shown, when the ID should only be used for grouping)

I would like to know if it is possible to change the turquoise blue background color that illuminates a button when pressed.
Use Column Ui and toolbar buttons configured with FLAT appearance
Dunno, if this is working in your coloured setup, but you can set the Appearance to NORMAL.  (Screenshot: Options - Buttons)
It is working here. When I hover over a button, no colour is changing.

I have tried to set another colour for the FLAT mode in the settings, but didn't had luck. It was always the same blue as in your screenshot.... dunno, if it is simply not possible or if I missed something. Maybe I was at the wrong place... (Screenshot Preferences_ Colours and fonts). I had set the Mode to Custom and changed the Background colours.

does CUI allow to inline edit multivalue-fields (separated with ; semicolon) ?
Sorry, indeed it doesn't. Also, in advanced preferences, there's a setting containing a list of fields where multiple values are allowed in the standard properties dialog. I'm not sure I have access to that list (though, Item properties splits on semicolons in all fields...)
Ok, thanks.
The problem is not the splitting with ;
The problem is that only the first value is shown in the column, when in edit-mode.
So when I have Artist1;Artist2:Artist3 in %Artist%-tag only Artist1 is shown in the %Artist%-column.

Thanks for v1.3.0-beta.1!  Upgrade from 0.5 went well except one thing...

NG Playlist is now the only playlist type. When there were two types, it was possible to enable groups only for NG playlists:

Display > ColumnsUI > Playlist view > Grouping tab > Show groups checkbox

This allowed selective use of groups for my playlists by picking either of the two types. So is there a way to do this trick anymore? Can groups be enabled per playlist to avoid going into settings every time?

Is this with 1.3.0 beta 1? It should be working there.

There are some alternatives:

- you could configure the playlist filters when editing a group (these support asterisks as wildcards so you could match on e.g. a prefix)
- you could assign the 'View/Playlist view/Show groups' main menu item to a button

What do you mean by "doesn't work" and what do you expect it to do?
i have 2 buttons image  black and blue, and nothing happening when i pressed the button or moved cursor on it
It works for me (but it does misbehave if the images aren't all the same size). If you export the buttons with embedded images ('Tools/Save to file (embed images)...' in options dialog) I could try the same configuration here.

Also, check the console, as if there were errors loading the image they will probably be there.

Ah, darn, no, excuse me, my fault.
its working with 1.3.0b1. I just wrote it because I didn't realized, it was fixed...
Had a hard time to find the changelog.... you could add the link to the f2k components page, that would make it easy for users to quickly find the changes which are made.
Sorry for wasting time.

Btw:
was something changed to the "locking" of panels? It seems to me, that there are not differences if a panel is locked or not. I can move it independently of the lock-state.
See animated gif please.
I expect the panels which are locked, not to move, or to be moved by other panels.
IIRC, it was not possible to move them in earlier versions of CUI. The thing (which I don't know how to name) which you need to grasp with the mouse, was not possible to grasp when the panel was locked.

EDIT:
I had [ x ] allow resizing of locked panels activated. for whatever reason.
Question: What is the difference between unlocked panels and this option?
I obviously don't understand how to use this option correctly....

Hi,

f2k 1.5 and CUI  1.3.0.b1

The windows7 popup notification balloons and the tooltip (when hovering over the f2k icon in the systray) show different infos.
The tooltip info is cropped. See screenshots.

Code: [Select]
[Title: %title%$crlf()]
[Artist: %artist%$crlf()]
[Album: %album%$crlf()]
[Date: %date%$crlf()]
$puts(R,$meta(rating))$puts(S,$pad($repeat(★,$get(R)),5,✩))$if($get(R),$ifequal($get(R),0,SkipTrack,$get(S)),$get(S))$crlf()
z###############x

Hi, I would like make a request if possible :D
1) For scrollbar, it would be nice to add options like auto, show and hide.
2) Is it possible to remove default left margin in playlist view when artwork is not displayed in groups?
