Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Script no longer works nowadays. I get this:

Reloading or fiddling with the config doesn't help.

It it still working  with JScript Panel v.1.3.0
Can you provide an output from the console panel where it crashes?

Same version here. Something else was wrong with my config, because another JScript panel crashes too (YouTube Track Manager).

Found the relevant log info:
Code: [Select]
JScript Panel: This component requires your system has IE9 or later installed.

So the solution is to install Internet Explorer 9 or later.

foo_jscript_panel introduced breaking changes in v2.0.0 that require updating your script:

fb.Trace has been removed and replaced with a native console.log method so you'll need to do a simple find/replace in all your scripts. It takes multiple arguments as before.

window.GetColorCUI -> window.GetColourCUI
window.GetColorDUI -> window.GetColourDUI

Some hints for installation for the 'non-experts':

- foo_input_spotify or a Spotify Premium Account is not required

- to get the reddit credentials:
     - register at reddit to get username and password
     - to get client_id and client_secret:
          - click here:
          - in the template fill any name at the field 'Name'
          - check 'script'
          - Type any description
          - leave 'about url' blank
          - at 'redirect url' type ''  (that did at least work for me, don't ask me why)
          - then confirm and you see something like this:
            - the red underline string is the client_secret, the string 'p-jcoL...' right to the app icon on top of the page is the client_id
            - then include username, password, client_id, client_secret in the header of the js code as described by zeremy

- when first using the code the script crashed. Fix: I had to create the folder media\r2ys manually in my foobar directory (using portable installation)
- then the plugin worked great  :)
- in my skin the panel appeared to be white text on white background (referring only to status message, left-click reddit functions worked well). Fix: underlying PSS with black background and click 'pseudo-transparent' in the js panel

And then: enjoy ;D Thanks to zeremy!

Updated to Jscript Panel v2+

I didn't have the media folder in fb.ProfilePath and it errored when it was supposed to create it with
Microsoft JScript runtime error:
Path not found
Problem was solved by creating the media folder manually in shell:AppData\foobar2000\
I uncommented //gr.FillSolidRect(0, 0, ww, wh, g_backcolor); as well because the background was white and you couldn't see the text.

After the first shot where I had no problems to connect to reddit, I wanted to change my password (as I did not want to ues one of my 'good' passwords here). Old clident id with new pwd did not work, so I generated a new script and new client id and secret. However, since then I am not able to connect, not even with a fully new login at reddit (new email, new user,...). Any hints?

Try clearing the panel's properties and reload.
Right click the panel > Select Properties > Press the clear button > Apply.

To get it to work with JScript v2.3+:
Fix utils.CheckComponent(..) calls to only take first parameter

Code: [Select]
 utils.CheckComponent(name) (boolean)
The previously optional "is_dll" parameter was removed in v2.3.0.
The filename is now always checked (equivalent to "is_dll" being true).
