Here comes the Delete Current Track component for Foobar2000

This is a simple component which adds a menu item giving the possibility to delete the current playing track. It allows you to assign a hotkey to this function.

When the function is activated, the current playing track is stopped, and the associated file is moved to the recycle bin. The next track in the playlist, if any, is then started.

Better put an option then; some people are extremely paranoid about losing files

Thank you for that very usefull component. Would you be willing to add an option to disable the confirmation-messagebox?

How about deleting the file after the user has stopped playing the file? Maybe you can make an option for that. At the moment I have to use an Autohotkey script to achive this behaviour. It would be great if your plugin could implement this.

The internal delete command of foobar is very stupid. When a file is playing it doesn't stop it in order to delete it but gives an error message. Could you make your plugin able to delete also files not currently playing?

I think there is a simple way to implements many requirements of this function, just add 3 or more optional hotkeys:
1. delete without confirm
2. delete with confirm
3. delete after playing

Really great plugin! 
Would it be possible to have an option to _not_ send the files to the recycle bin but have an confirmation box?

Just a short question 'cause I can't imagine it:

For what do you need such a plugin?

If you're listening a complete album of 1 artist, and lets say you only like 4 songs, and 2 songs have blips and noise in them, when you hear that you can use this plugin to easily delete them

Alright, could be useful for interrupted songs.
On the other hand I've to say, that often songs need their time to become really great.
Anyways - I don't have to use it and the "jumping to next track"-feature of this plugin explains, that you don't use the inbuild function "delete track".
Self explanatory.

i don't get it.
why don't you guys use ratings to mark the songs you like/dislike?

'Cause they want to delete those files forever.
Nothing for me, 'cause I think incomplete albums sucks.

Especially 'cause we have great plugins like "foo_skip"

Hello - I don't understand why, but I wasn't subscribed anymore to my own thread, so I didn't see your replies until now. Sorry guys for the delay, this is not in my habits.

Delete after stop is more complex to implement. The component would have to remember that song, and to monitor until foobar stops or begins playing another file. This is not impossible to do, but I don't understand how this could be really useful to anyone.

To delete a file which is not currently playing, you have to use your mouse to select it in the playlist. As you're already there, you can simply right-click on that song and select File Operations / Delete File. I don't think you need a plugin for that, unless I misunderstood something in your request...

Regards.

Well, I could, until someone selects this option without thinking and then sues me for deleting songs on his computer. Ok, I'm kinda joking, but I see similar behaviors a few times a year (replace "sues" by "threatens to sue"...). Better be safe than sorry.

I think deleting to recycle bin is safer, and emptying the recycle bin is just a few clicks away. If you don't want files to be stored in there, you can disable the recycle bin completely...

Late to the party here, but does anybody know how I can use a hotkey for the confirmation delete?  I downloaded the deleteCurrent component, unzipped the folder, and placed the foo_DeleteCurrent.dll in the component folder inside the foobar2000 folder. Then I went to preferences > general > keyboard shortcuts > add new > main > playback > ask for confirmation before deleting. I added a key in the key area (backspace). I did not click the global hotkey radio button. Then I closed out preferences and restarted Foobar. When I select a track and hit the backspace button, however, nothing happens. I tried using different buttons, combining it with a ctrl or alt, clicking the global hotkey radio button--nothing seems to work. I tried finding out some information through the search here, I found out that maybe I have to "bind" the hotkey somehow? I couldn't find out how to actually do this. Maybe I just don't know the right terms to search for. Anyway, I can't seem to get this to work, and would appreciate any help!

You probably want to select the  "[main] > playback > delete current song" instead. If you set a hotkey to "ask for confirmation before deleting", your hotkey will just toggle that option :-)
