I just installed the new version 1.2 and detected a serious error. It does not allow you to correctly change the font size in "Colors and fonts". I had to reinstall version 1.0. Please can you verify that I am right?

Please remove UI Hacks (foo_ui_hacks).

I hope it can be blacklisted in the foobar2000 core. If not, it will be blacklisted in a Columns UI update instead.

Unfortunately, it cannot be blacklisted on the grounds of doing bad things with the SDK, since it was already reported by its author to not actually be using the SDK at all. So it can only be blacklisted on the grounds of causing bad behavior in general.

Siento no saber inglés. No he entendido lo de la lista negra "blacklisted".

It means, block or ban UI Hacks. It breaks other components in subtle ways that are difficult to detect. So, it would be better if there were some active (as opposed to passive) countermeasures (blacklisting being a more extreme example).

In any case, remove foo_ui_hacks and your problem should go away.

Quiere decir que el componente está, de cierta forma, "vetado", porque ocupa ciertas técnicas que están prohibidas para los componentes de foobar2000.
Desinstala el componente "UI Hacks".
¡Se habla español! Also available in purple and orange.

Gracias por la respuesta. Ya desinstalé Ui_Hacks. Y colours and fonts comenzó a funcionar correctamente.
Realmente yo solo usaba Ui_hacks por 2 motivos:
1. Eliminar la barra superior de windows para ganar una linea en mi foobar. Esto me obligó a crear en mi foobar los iconos de minimización y salida [- X]
2. Sustituir el menú de foobar (File Edit View Playback ....) por un botón que apuntara a la funcionalidad Popup Main Menu que proporcionaba Ui_hacks.
Pregunto si alguien sabe de algún complemento permitido que permita hacer los 2 funcionalidades anteriores o al menos la primera de ellas.

If google translate works for you:
- You can install the previous version of CUI, change the font and then install the new one (1.2.)   :-[  O:) .
- I'm pretty sure foo_spider_monkey_panel, jscript_panel, wsh_panel_mod (seperate components) have some menu-button-link replacements.

Thanks for your help. I have already removed Ui-Hacks. Now I have the windows title bar at the top of my dark colored foobar (since my foobar I designed it in dark mode).
The problem I now have is that when I enter Preferences (for example) the windows title bar remains white until I close the preferences. It is quite annoying. I would like to know if there is a solution for this problem.

The way I handle this is, whenever I want to change font size I remove UI hacks from the components folder, then I set my font size and after that move UI hacks back to the component folder. It's a little bit annoying but I'm not changing fonts on a daily basis so it's fine for me.

Hello musicmusic,

using this nice feature:
[ x ] allow mouse-activated inline editing

can we please have the possibility to use the useful CTRL+A keyboardshortcut inside a field, when we edit?
I really miss the simple and windows-way to mark all the text in a field.


Re: Columns UI

Reply #7486
Ctrl+A works for me when editing a field in-line in e.g. the playlist view (all text is selected by default anyway). Are you still using the default playlist view?
.

Re: Columns UI

Reply #7487
Thanks for testing,
that's strange, because here the shortcut does not work in-line.
I'm using a "Playlist view" from the "Playlists Views" Panels.
Also, I have not assigned the CTRL+A key via keyboard shortcuts in the f2k preferences.
The key-combination works in other fields, like quick-search, or when renaming a playlist, so the CTRL-key is not broken :-)

Hopefully, the screenshot tells you, where I am, when trying to press CTRL+A.
Maybe I'm in a wrong field...

Seems like it works in Windows 10, but not Windows 7. I'll fix it, thanks.

Hello musicmusic,

I'm having a somewhat "long" list of columns, which I switch often, for different "situations" where I visually "check" music or want to have different views, when reviewing music.
So I de-/activate columns a lot and this is a little bit cumbersome.

So I'd like to ask, if it sounds reasonable to you, if you could add something like a "saved columns state", where we can store and load different "playlist views", so we can easily switch between.

I know, the user can use another playlist-view component (and configure accordingly their whishes), but those are not as great as the default playlist view panel coming with CUI! Important features then are missing.

Of course, having different playlist-view panels with separate configurable views would be even more convenient for ppl. who use f2k not only as a player, but as a great tool to edit music collections.

Is this something, what seems to be useful for others too?

There are (full) layout presets, you can use a keyboard shortcuts to switch between them. Duplicate, add changes and save.There's some delay while switiching though.
Edit: I didn't check if it would work for columns views and your problem :( . Disregard if it doesn't, information may be useful for someone.

Re: Columns UI

It surely is (useful for someone else) ;-)
The Delay here is about 2-5 seconds. Thats ok, when changing the layout once a week or a day, but not quickly to have a quick look at another column-layout.

I do not need to change the whole layout, just the columns. This seems not possible atm.

Re: Columns UI

Reply #7492
Thanks for the feedback. I'm planning on making changes in that area for 1.4.0. However, in the short term, I'd like to get 1.3.0 released (which will be a small update).

The time it takes to switch layouts will depend on how long it takes for the panels in the layout to initialise. The built-in panels shouldn't really be taking that long.

I guess, I really have exhausted the list of (3rd component) panels and the layout itself. I don't blame CUI. Its great to have such a flexible ability to customize the layout.
If you need something to be tested in detail, just gimme a yell...

Please see the attached animated GIF.

When using CUI 1.20, collapsed trees expand, while moving up/down.

Thats irritating, not only on long trees.

Is it possible to fix this?
(As well as copied panels loose their customized title, which is kind of inconvenient, when copying a lot to rearrange the loyout)

Re: Columns UI

Reply #7495
Thanks, I'll have a look into both those problems.

What do you mean by "doesn't work" and what do you expect it to do?


@musicmusic
does CUI allow to inline edit multivalue-fields (separated with ; semicolon) ?

I have an ARTIST field foo1;foo2 and when editing inline, only foo1 is shown.

(windows7, f2k 1.5b21)

Sorry, indeed it doesn't. Also, in advanced preferences, there's a setting containing a list of fields where multiple values are allowed in the standard properties dialog. I'm not sure I have access to that list (though, Item properties splits on semicolons in all fields...)
