Great idea to simplify the configuration of the subject of external and embedded covers.
I would have preferred that the Preferences / Advanced / Display / AlbumArt / Embedded vs External settings had been included in Preferences / Columns Ui / Artwork
The identifier for that node isn't included in the foobar2000 SDK, so linking to it is probably not a good idea. I'm also not sure it's Columns UI's job to make those settings more accessible. But, I could add a short note and a link to the Display node on advanced preferences.

For me it would be very useful if the Embedded vs. External selection were independent for the Playlist View and for Artwork View.
I am forced to use the Album Art component to paint the external while the playlist view paints the embedded.
Could you elaborate on why you'd like different behaviour for them?

Soy español y utilizo el google traductor.

In the captures I show 2 examples:

- In the capture 1 we see an Elton John box-set that is composed of 4 cds. I show in the playlist view the 4 covers as embedded, while on the left, in the Album Art I show the general cover of the Box as external.

- In the capture 2 we see a lp 12" by Kenny Clarke "Telefunken Blues" that collects 2 lps 10" each with its own cover. The Playlist view shows the 2 covers as embedded, and in the Album Art I show the cover of lp 12" as external.

I wish I could do this with the Artwork view. For this it is necessary that Artwork View and Playlist View each have their own configuration (Embedded vs External).

After exiting sleep and hibernation modes, the player pauses. Then it falls. Versions prior to 1.0.0 work fine

In my foobar I have configured the subject of Embedded or External as you want. That is, if there is embedded the embedded is painted and if there is no embedded the external is painted.

I leave you the captures of my configuration:
Finaly! I Thank you soooooo much! Now its exactly as I want it to be!
Your screenshots were of great help! Thanks again!

The problem is that this configuration affects both the Artwork View and the Playlist View. For that reason I replaced the Artwork View with the Album Art component that only paints external. In this way Album Art paints the external and Playlist View the embedded.
Thats ok here, I use Album Art too, as a preview of the local stored cover art files.

OT:
May I ask, what f2k Theme you are using? or is it something you build yourself? looks pretty nice.

I doubt, it will be easy (as importing just a theme-file into f2k) to my system, because, there are times, I just want to see a nice player running, but my own theme is ...well ... usefull, aka ugly and technical :-)

Thank you. I built the f2k theme myself. I started about 10 years ago installing the default user interface. Then I installed Columns Ui and since then I have not stopped improving it until today. It is a simple design, without frills, but that has many things internally that I created as I needed them.

I installed foo_ui_columns-1.4.0-beta.1.fb2k-component and i have detected the following error for the .WMA files. The Playlist View does not paint the external cover or the embedded one.
I would like to know if it is an error that will be corrected in future versions.

OK, I see that that isn't the easiest problem to solve. If it's easy to add such an option to the artwork view panel, I'll add it in a future version.

I'd be surprised if that was caused by Columns UI, but please check if it happens with a clean portable installation of foobar2000 (with and without Columns UI).

Yes, this has been worked around for the release candidate which will be released in the next couple of days.

Just upgraded to 1.4.0. Is this trojan warning a false positive?


Re: Columns UI

I had a bunch of the same false-positives from Microsoft recently. File can be submitted here (no registration / authentication is required if you select 'Home customer'). The more submissions they have, the sooner (I want to believe) they realize that this detection is too broad.

To their credit, they react very quickly: within few hours detection gets removed and cloud database gets updated. I don't know though how often are updated local malware definitions on users PC.

Microsoft have removed the detection now. That still leaves Rising – it may well follow with a lag...

Hi,

Playing with styles is great but in order to make some kind of "universal" customizations, it would be great to be able to have variables (I mean, especially, in the "Playlist view") ...

So, instead of something like this:
Code: [Select]
$blend($rgb(195,202,210),$rgb(41,52,64),3,10)

It would be great to have something like this:
Code: [Select]
$blend($rgb($get(CUIColor0)),$rgb($get(CUIColor3)),3,10)

So, one of the following?
Code: [Select]
$puts(mycolor,$rgb(255,0,0))
$get(mycolor)
Code: [Select]
$set_global(myglobalcolor,$rgb(255,0,0))
$get_global(myglobalcolor)
The former two works in the context/scope of one UI element (such as a column's display pattern, or a grouping pattern etc). And that's where you input them both to make use of them.

The other two sets up a global variable that's accessible from almost any UI element provided by CUI. You need to use $set_global() in 'Preferences/Display/Columns UI/Playlist View/Globals' and $get_global() can retrieve its value when used in the corresponding panels (playlist columns, etc).

Thank you for the answer but this is not really what I meant.
I would like the user to be able to play with colors from the color/font settings panel of CUI without having to define some variables, etc.
II would like to retrieve the defined colors in a way like it is done with SMP:
Code: [Select]
backcolor = window.GetColourCUI(3);
textcolor = window.GetColourCUI(0);

Re: Columns UI

Reply #7564
Perhaps you are aware of it, because it has been mentioned a few times in the past, but the $findfile() function in panel stack splitter can read file names and you can use SMP to create files named after the colour values. So at least within PSS scripts it is possible.

I'm not really familiar with the CUI playlist view, but the default style string in the globals/style tab shows a few CUI-specific variables such as %_selected_back%, which seem to do exactly what you are asking for. I cannot find an online documentation about these variables, but they're pretty self-explanatory.

No ; not in the Grouping Tab :(

Not sure if it's useful in this case but perhaps foo_exvar is
worth checking out.

Could have been useful but doesn't work in the playlist Grouping Tab...

I am Spanish and I don't know if I understood you well. I leave one of my scripts of my grouping in which I define the colors. That is what I cannot do is define the type of font, size, or background color that must be defined in colors and fonts.

$ifgreater(%totaldiscs%,1,$rgb(10,10,10)%discnumber%$tab(),$puts(coloralbum,$rgb(200,200,200))$puts(coloralbumvelado,$rgb(130,130,130))$puts(colorartist,$rgb(130,130,130))$puts(colordate,$rgb(150,150,150))$puts(colorcodec,$rgb(80,80,80))$puts(campo,%album%)$puts(primero,$strchr($get(campo),'('))$puts(ultimo,$strrchr($get(campo),')'))$puts(tex1,$left($get(campo),$add($get(primero),-1)))$puts(tex2,$substr($get(campo),$get(primero),$get(ultimo)))$ifgreater($get(ultimo),0,$puts(tex3,$substr($get(campo),$add($get(ultimo),1),$len($get(campo)))),)$ifequal($get(primero),0,$puts(tex1,)$puts(tex2,)$puts(tex3,$get(campo)),)
$ifequal($get(ultimo),0,$puts(tex1,)$puts(tex2,)$puts(tex3,$get(campo)),)
$ifgreater($get(primero),$get(ultimo),$puts(tex1,)$puts(tex2,)$puts(tex3,$get(campo)),)$if($strcmp($cut(%genre%,7),'Clásica'),$get(coloralbum)$get(tex1)$get(coloralbumvelado)$get(tex2)$get(coloralbum)$get(tex3)$get(colordate)[ %date%]$get(colorartist) %artist%,$get(colordate)[%date% ]$get(coloralbum)$get(tex1)$get(coloralbumvelado)$get(tex2)$get(coloralbum)$get(tex3))$get(colorcodec) %codec%)


This grouping translates into the attached image in the line framed in a red rectangle in which the year, the album and the codec are painted in different colors.

Thanks to everyone who had answered me.
Obsiously, you didn't see the point : I don't want the user to have to juggle with rgb values but to be able to customize everything (ESPECIALLY the Playlist Group Header) from the color / font panel of CUI.

Anyway, I've switched to EL_Playlist and I've achieved what I'd wanted to.

I agree with you. I go further. I am not satisfied that the grouping has its section in color and fonts.
For years I hope that each grouping line has its own color and font configuration.
But columns UI has not yet considered it necessary. From here I make the request.

Hi eveyone

When using Columns UI  1.4.1   instead  of  1.3.0  version, Artworks  for SACD ( ISO files )  are no more  visible in the playlist view.
With  DVDA, flac, or MLP  it's ok.
Of course artwork files for SACD are not included in the ISO file but are .jpg files in the same directory that the ISO files.

thanks for your help
