Hi :) Some time ago with WSH Panel component, I was using the "Thumbs" script by marc2003.
It's a nice script that displays not only a main pic, but several thumbs of other pics that you can select by clicking on them, etc.. Plus it's really customizable (e.g. I could edit lines 10 & 11 to change data folder and subfolders format).
So of course my question is : is there some port or equivalent script that I could use with Spider Monkey ? Thanks !

Isn't this Marcs smp version of his thumb.js? (not using it myself)

Yes Marc's old scripts are all ported to SMP and found in the default SMP install folder: foobar2000\user-components\foo_spider_monkey_panel\samples\complete

Got it :) Thanks MojoBass & mjm716 !

There is however one thing I can't get to work :
- With the old WSH script I could set a custom data folder, and then automatically download pics to that folder and subfolders. It worked perfectly.
- With the new SMP script I can set a custom folder structure (in my case it would be "D:\AUDIO\BIOS\artists\$meta(artist,0)"), and then the script displays the already existing pics... but there is no automatic download of new pics (e.g. when there are no pics yet, or where the number of existing pics is lower than the set limit).

If I change "Custom folder" to "Last.fm artist art" I see a "Download now" menu option, but :
- The download is manual, so I'd have to select "Download now" for every new song, which is painful for thousands of artists,
- The pics then get downloaded to %foobar folder%\js_data\artists\ , not to my custom folder.

Can I change this behaviour ? How ?

@wcs13 ,  marc2003 removed automatic download option (AFAIK people abused it by settings download limit too high, thus violating LastFM rules, which prompted LastFm to block marc's API key), you can probably restore it by comparing the old script with the new one and copying all the relevant changes.

I've been thinking about this. Rather than removing auto-download, maybe this would have been more useful  in marc's script ?

Idea 1 :
- Define two api_key variables : m_api_key = marc's one (somewhere in the middle of the script), and user_api_key = empty (to be filled by the user at the beginning of the script)
- "Download now" would use m_api_key, but "Auto download" would use user_api_key, so it would result in an error until user enters a valid user_api_key
Sure, an evil user could always try to tweak the script into using m_api_key for autoDL, but very few users would go through the hassle. Easier to just get a personal API Key and copy it in the very first lines of the script.

Idea 2 :
An even stricter solution : just define a single user_api_key variable (empty), so no DLs at all until user enters a valid key. But once he does, autoDL would work too.

My point being : if you're a developer, please don't break script's functionality just because of some (ab)users. Stop giving the API Key if needed, but never break functionality.
It harms the good guys, while at the same time any abuser with JS knowledge could restore function using marc's previous WSH script and keep abusing it.

Anyway, I'll wait until somehow this function can be restored : I already have a personal API Key, but I know little about JS so I can't do all those changes on my own. :(

It could be a loooong wait. WilB's absolutely amazing SMP/Biography script has better downloading capabilities and customization than Marc's script. I use them both myself.

Last update of complete samples should be attached. Includes automatic download options for Thumbs script.

@wcs13 , @mjm716 , actually marc2003 re-added automatic download to the `Thumbs` script yesterday (he also corrected my misinformation about LFM API key requirement: the script actually parses LFM site manually without using LFM API). But, regretfully, he deleted his GitHub account shortly afterwards =(

@mjm716, I would say that one should use WilB's Bio script if they need everything in a single panel, and use marc2003's scripts if they want to separate various functionality in multiple different panels (e.g. `thumbs` and `last.fm bio` scripts).

Thanks! (esp. for providing `.git` as well)

Hello,

Is there a way to disable the default context menu (and NOT replacing it with another) ?

Wow guys, that was faster than I expected !  :))
I have indeed updated the SMP samples and now autoDL seems to work again. Thank you !  :)

One question though :
- In "last.fm artist art" mode, art is downloaded to %foobar folder%\js_data\artists
- In "custom folder" mode, art isn't downloaded to the defined custom folder (ex : "D:\AUDIO\BIOS\artists\$meta(artist,0)" ). It just doesn't seem to be downloaded anywhere.
Am I doing something wrong ?

I'd really like the art to be downloaded to my big storage D: drive, and not to my small system C: drive.
Besides, I have several portable foobar installs, and I'd like them all to share the same art folder in order not to download art multiple times.
As a last resort, maybe I could edit the script and change the the default %foobar folder%\js_data\artists. Any hints on what line(s) I should edit ?

Implement an empty `on_mouse_rbtn_up` callback that returns `true`. Corresponding docs: https://theqwertiest.github.io/foo_spider_monkey_panel/assets/generated_files/docs/html/module-callbacks.html#~on_mouse_rbtn_up

Greetings!
I am not good at scripting. I want to create a menu for switching DSP presets. There is a switching code for the output device, but when I replace with "fb.GetDSPPresets()" the menu remains the same.
Code: [Select]
function getDSPPresetsMenu(x, y) {
x = Buttons.top_l.left;
y = Buttons.top_l.top;

    var menu = window.CreatePopupMenu();
    var str = fb.GetDSPPresets();
    var arr = JSON.parse(str);
    var active = -1;
    for (var i = 0; i < arr.length; i++) {
        menu.AppendMenuItem(0, i + 1, arr[i].name);
        if (arr[i].active) active = i;
    }

    if (active > -1) menu.CheckMenuRadioItem(1, arr.length + 1, active + 1);

    var idx = menu.TrackPopupMenu(x, y);
    menu;

    if (idx > 0) fb.RunMainMenuCommand("Playback/DSP settings/" + arr[idx - 1].name);
}
