thx,
this is a great plugin 
(i was lost when 1st time use, dunno where to activate it  )

btw, is possible make it save the directory location?
each time i restart fb2k, it will return to root directory.(disable scanning the A: drive would be nice, since i don't use it anymore  )

A very nice and useful pannel, thank you. Could you please consider adding an option to hide the 'address bar'? Also, being able to specify a folder as root, eg My Music, would be great

The address bar is provided here for select a folder faster. Users can type or paste a path and press ENTER to select the folder.
But if you really do not like it, I will add a option to hide it.
The feature 'custom root ' which I considered before, but I think a 'startup path' is a alternative choice and can be implemented easier.

Thanks Jackie. I like the idea of a startup folder. In fact I'd like to hide the address bar in order to save space, as I prefer using foobar in a small window. Also, curiously, pressing enter does nothing

Writing a path in adress bar and hitting enter makes nothing at all happen at my place (0.8.3 on XPsp2)?

"Startup path" could be a  a nifty feature.....

hmm, I tested this feature in the latest 0.02b2. It's work.
I used xpsp2 and fb2k 0.8.3, too.
So I don't know why that can not work in your computer.

Tested with b2 now also, still same situation. I have a Logitech USB keyboard & mouse setup, don't know if that can have anything to do with it? Can't find spesific explanations otherwise, keyboard works with other stuff......

Anyways, this plugin is starting to look great. Thanks for your effort!

Works well and thanks for this feature!
Now i just miss a version of it, without scrollbar.

It is possible to disable the scrollbars, but I have a question.
If there is no scrollbar, how we scroll it?
Note there are both horizontal and vertical cases.

In fact, I would add custom colors even if there is no one tell me to add time.
Since I need them, too.

ver 0.03 rocks!
Perhaps the startup path sould be automaticallly expanded, so the first thing we do wouldn't be clicking the + at its left?
it's 3am and i'm somewhat drunk so please forgive me if that's a bad idea

Yes I like to use this in my tabbed panel stack and I can't go that deep into my folders cause I can't see them, so new version would need scrollbar badly.

Nice component. Good work, thanks!
Request: Menu option for "Window frame style: (None / Sunken / Grey)"

I was wondering the same thing. Then I figured 0.03a2 might just be the same as 0.03a, but without the scrollbars (?), and dl'd 0.03a instead.

Good question. How could anyone do without at least a vertical scrollbar? (for example, 'album list panel' has an option to only enable/disable the horizontal scrollbar)

Ok, it will be added.

Edit:
It seems that Windows draw a black frame instead of a grey frame in the tree controls.
But sunken frame is fine.

I'am sorry, the 0.03a2 I uploaded before is not the latest bulid.
Please download it again to get the TRUE 0.03a2.

However, what about both horizotal and vertical content should be scrolled?

Ah... Thanks! (for adding window frame style (in the future) too)!

Keep up the good work! I hope this gets ported to 0.9

Good work ,man! 
I just would prefer to have the choice enable/disable vertical or horizontal scrollbar. No idea?

Well, if you really want that, I will add a option to disable the horizotal one.
There is some reasons that I cannot add a option to disable the vertical scrollbar. (At least I will not do this soon. )

i have just downloaded latest build - 0.03a3 and tried it. all is great but one thing:
it seems that because now it scans for every directory not only its subdirectories but all files it takes about 30 seconds to show my music folder. maybe you can add an option for choosing basic usage : only directories tree or directories with files tree.

Thank you  for your work.

Amit.

Didn't you see an option "Only show following types..."?
I think it is what you need.....

Oh, I think you have too many directories and files in the same folder.
I have a folder contains 168 files and one folder.
It took only 1~2 seconds to expand the folder.
This component does not scan full content of a folder until the user expands the folder.
The main overhead between 0.02 and 0.01 is testing a file is supported or not supported by fb2k.
The API is provided in foobar2000 SDK, and I don't know the performance of the API.

However, I will try to optimize this part. I hope that will help you.

thanks for the fast reply.

In  0.01 it took about 1-2 seconds to open the music directory.
if this check you described is the only difference in reading the directories between 0.01 and later builds can you make this optional  for the time being until a better way is found?
