Hi again, maybe it was missed or poorly phrased by me so I'll try to rise this again: can we have progress display/cursor back visible while scanning is halted? Like in previous version. Now when halted it displays nothing.

If your machine is busy and hasn't managed to decode one second worth of audio data after one second since decoder was opened, the scanning gets aborted. After that one second marker the check is constantly in use. If average decoding speed drops below realtime speed things get aborted.

That was probably a reason. I think my machine was busy at time that happened. But it isn't really a big problem as it seems to happen very rarely so far.

Do you mean default splitters used in the DUI? Default UI calls UI pieces "elements", Columns UI uses term panels and has third party panel splitter(s) available.
The component scales itself to any panel size it is given and doesn't resize anything. If you think there's a bug somewhere I need more clear instructions.

Yes I was referring to default splitters and elements, sorry for any confusion. I have sent you a private message with more details.

Got the PM and reproduced the issue. A bug in foobar2000, I replicated the issue with native UI elements too.

Edit: bug reported to Peter.

@no9 - new version uploaded that only disables waveform rendering. Previous version turned the render loop fully off so cursor had to be blanked or it would have stayed in one place.

Everything is in the place now, so thanks again :)

@Lucidae foobar2000 v1.4 beta 21 has a fix for the resize bug.

Thanks for this component! Perfect!

I want to report a bug.
In Preferences | Display | Columns UI | Colours and Fonts | Colours is in the Element dropdown list an random entry showing up twice. This is, because the component Waveform Minibar (mod) is not returning a name and one of the existing names ends up getting reused instead.
See the complete discussion on GitHub reupen/columns_ui, Issue #137.

Case and Zao, I love the waveform components. Thanks for the great work!

I just added Minibar to a tab in the bottom of my interface, right next to the original Seekbar. Minibar works perfectly, but right-click brings up no configuration options (it does with all the other components). I'm not in layout editing mode. I've restarted foobar2000. Is there some other way to access the config?

Minibar doesn't have per-instance configuration. If you use the mod version you'll find all options under "Tools" -> "Waveform Minibar (mod)" preferences page.

Ahh--that's it! Thanks so much.

A suggestion: audio waveforms are often displayed in a logarithmic scale to more closely match the way our ears hear acoustic energy. Could you add a log scale display option? Waveforms would be much fuller.

Somebody already did the math in a SoundCloud-looking mod for Seekbar, if you wanted to track that down.

Good info and graphs here: http://www.acoustics.salford.ac.uk/acoustics_info/decibels/

Minibar was supposed to be simple and now it starts to have more options than anything...

You want something like this:

Edit: Attachment removed as the component is now released.

OK--that's just freaky. Yes, that's exactly what I was thinking. You nailed it!

Copious thanks, and apologies for requesting yet one more not-so-simple feature. At least it wasn't too hard to implement.
