Win 10 1809: Rating stars

The rating stars in foobar2000 are not working anymore with new Windows 10 Version 1809.

Yep, same issue here (also with Windows 10 Version 1809)

Unfortunately it appears 1809 broke system-wide font substitution. Programs that do substitution in code, like browsers and Office, can display the unicode characters that aren't present in the active font. But majority of programs rely on the OS doing this automatically. For example Explorer can no longer show the characters.

What if use $char(9733) instead of ★ and $char(9734) instead of ☆ in tittle formatting and set Segoe UI for playlist (or where stars should be displayed) in File->Preferences>Default user interface->Colors and fonts->Fonts?
I don't have windows 10 so i can't test this myself.

$char(9733) doesn't work. The correct characters from font Segoe UI Symbol are:  (full star) and  (empty star). Please copy and paste these characters in your foobar2000.
The complete syntax is:
Code: [Select]
$repeat(,%rating%)$repeat(,$sub(5,%rating%))
(Maybe the browser can't display the characters correctly, but Win 10 can do)

Using the unicode character directly or with $char() method makes no difference to the problem. I have stars visible in playlist just by switching from Segoe UI to Segoe UI Symbol without altering the characters. The characters grimes linked are larger stars than the regular ones.

Another lovely thing contributing to why 1809 was pulled.

The workaround has some issues:

  • The stars are different sizes
  • The title bar is still broken
  • The status bar is still broken

I found other stars, that don't have that glitch:
Code: [Select]
$pad($repeat(,%rating%), 5,)

You have to add the code also to Preferences | Display | Default User Interface
  • Window title
  • Status bar
