still loving this plugin, but I"m pretty sure it is causing periodic crashes in foobar and even in windows explorer...

so any idea on updates would be really appreciated!

I would love to see a new version.
I can't remember what it was that made me remove the component, but would very much like to use it again.

Hello everybody. I just finished a new version. Please take a look.






** Known issues:
- Although deskband starts on Windows XP, it is unstable and may not function properly.
- AlbumArt does not draws correctly on Windows XP.

** Changelog:
- new: Deskband can show/hide itself automatically when foobar2000 opens/closes,
but on open you will receive confirmation dialog from windows.
- new: Volume control bar.
- new: Text can be automatically scrolled if it doesn't fit in toolbar.
- new: Text can be aligned to right.
- new: Text supports foobar2000 title formatting.
- new: "Stop after current" button with current mode indicator.
- new: Album Art support.
- new: Options configuration dialog (Display - Deskband Controls in foobar2000),
no more config files.
- A little bit simplified installation and deinstallation.

For more details please see included readme file.

Excellent, thanks. It works reasonably well with my vertical taskbar, the only thing I'd wish for was a faster ( or adjustable ) scrolling speed

Thank you very much for the new version.
A few issues:
- My explorer.exe crashed at some point, though it seems it was caused by a quick open and close of foobar which "confused" it.
- After upgrading foobar to 1.1.8 beta 2, component no longer worked, so I had to repeat the installation procedure.
- It would be nice if you could add the component to the official repository, in order to make tracking changes easier.]

All in all, a great work! biggrin.gif

Actually it does, you just had to go to preferences in foobar and confirm the parameters again. I suspect that's a design issue with the taskbar rather than a component problem.

Excellent plugin. With the WM popup display you have to open the foobar window to change volume. This components lets you control volume and the seekbar.
Had been looking for that a long time. Thanks.

- Yeah, I know smile.gif This deskband thing is very crushy by itself, even Windows SDK sample crashed at me with no reason. I am searching how to make it more stable, but even now explorer is restarting automatically by Windows, so it's not that critical.
- I will check this.
- Does anyone know what should I do to add component to official repository? I did not find any guides or instructions.

- Ok, I'll add scroll speed option.

P.S. Currently I'm researching how to make it look better on XP with Luna theme, because XP does not support transparent backgrounds on trackbars. D'oh! crying.gif

As for the component no longer working after a foobar upgrade, Tried again and this time worked perfectly. Anyway, Sandrine's explanations seems fine.
Regarding the explorer crashes, I suspected it has more to do with windows itself rather than the component, but if you could somehow bypass this limitation...
One issue I noticed is scrolling of RTL text (hebrew) not working. Text will just bounce a bit to the right and than a bit to the left, over and over again.
Thanks again.

Can you upload some file with this kind of text in tags so that I'll be able to test?

Hello eldarien,
Here's the sample with Hebrew tags that isn't scrolling properly.
Ideally, for English text, text is aligned to left and scrolled to the left (as today).
For Hebrew (and any other RTL text), text is aligned to the right and scrolled to the right.
If the detection can be automatic, that would be perfect... smile.gif

Hebrew Tags Sample

Thanks again, Adam.

Wow! ohmy.gif
0.2.1 works beautifully, automatic scroll direction is brilliant.
The only thing that's missing is a place where you can keep track on future development (ahem... official component repository... wink.gif ).
Thanks alot.

Oh, finding the cause for those random explorer crashes would be nice smile.gif

Great work!

Suggestions:
* Custom text / placement (e.g., time elapsed / time remaining besides the seekbar)
* Seekbar/volume slider style options
* Opacity options
* Display nothing when foobar is closed

Custom text / placement - edit the "text format" to whatever you want.
Display nothing when foobar is closed - you can make the component completely close the taskbar when exiting foobar.

I have taskbar on the side so my configuration needs are a little different.
Request:
- Multiple text controls (1 long line is really hard to read)
- More than 1 artwork
- Display artwork provided by foo_uie_biography / Custom image path
- Change volume while dragging
- Button vertical aligment / Each button as separate control
Thanks!

Ah, I figured out you can get a line break with $crlf()
When I first start my computer, [Start] displays, although foobar is closed and "display status" is disabled.

Great component!

It'd be nice if you could select an action to occur double clicking on the album art/text. Specifically I want it to bring foobar to the foreground when I have it minimized to the tray.

I've a little issue with the album art support:
(foobar2000 1.1.7, win7 x64, Deskband_2)

All worked fine just up to the point, where I've multiple album arts for one album. It is an album with 3 Disc and for each disc there is a cover. My album art seach pattern is

(something...)
cover.jpg
cover_%discnumber%.jpg
album.jpg

As foobar searches in that order, it displays the file "album.jpg", when I select the whole album with multiple covers, and "cover_%discnumber%.jpg", when I select a single Track. Only Deskband won't do that. It displays my stub image instead. As I expect that the album art would be loaded via foobar, this seems quite strange to me.
