Is there a way to remove the right-click menu's "Close panel" option? I'd like to lock my foobar2000 user interface from being changed by people who don't really know what they are doing. If my party guests want to change songs it happens very fast that they close a panel.

Any chance of a "delay" function in the filter panels? As it is right now, start typing (without using "F3 search") anything starting with the letter A and it will start by showing the "All" item before it continues to register the rest of your typing. This causes a very notable delay and makes it more frustrating to use than it has to be. A short (perhaps customizable?) delay of a few 100 ms. before showing anything would be a very welcome addition in a future release smile.gif

Columns UI 0.3.7.4 0.3.7.6 released.
Large parts of colour code parsing & tab column rendering have been rewritten, so watch out for any issues in those areas. Due to changed text tenderer, there may be slightly higher CPU usage in some situations, as a result though this issue no longer exists. Some other changes in changelog.

Album list panel 0.3.5 released:
Bug fixes

musicmusic, I noticed this minor issue with the new version (count column):

New CUI:



Old CUI:



The code (simplified) behind column is: %play_count%$tab()%play_count_sql%

Thanks for the report, 0.3.7.7 should be OK/closer to the old behaviour.

Do you want it to do nothing in those situations?

It appears that my request was completely ignored so I want to at least show the reason for such thing.
Well no reply doesn't mean it was ignored, I am just more responsive to people reporting problems. I will keep your request in mind, but there are quite possibly things with higher priority.

There isn't - no, I'll have a think about that since we have live editing now.

How many tracks do you have in your library? Is the delay from creating the autosend playlist or updating the other filters? You can find out by trying with & without autosend enabled. Also if you have any selection viewers in your layout (e.g. Item properties), they can create a delay, please let me know if that is the cause as I'm interested to know what's causing the delay.

The script is in your link, however it is very very old, it might not work completely correctly anymore, but you would create a single column only and put the script in there as your display script.

Yes I reevaluated the old behaviour and thought this made more sense wink.gif

Hi MM,

I just stepped up to 0.3.7.7 and for some strange reason $rgb() [reverts to default colors] has stopped working for me in the item details panel - seems to work okay elsewhere. Could you have a look into it? Thanks

Hi,
Thanks I believe I've found the problem you refer to. One more build won't hurt... try 0.3.7.8 smile.gif

Sorry, I really should have been more specific in my original post.
  • Library size: 30326 items / 287GB (308 452 926 298 bytes)
  • Selection viewers: None

CUI default panels/items:
  • Buttons x 1
  • Seekbar x 1
  • Menu x 1
  • Filter x 4

3rd party components:
  • foo_uie_biography (0.2.9.0) x 2
  • foo_uie_lyrics (0.3.3.9) x 1
  • foo_uie_playlists_dropdown (0.7.2) x 1
  • foo_uie_quicksearch (2.8l) x 1


I did some timing with a stopwatch to test the difference between having autosend enabled and disabled, and here's the result (did 3 rounds for each). The timings were done by initially placing the cursor on the first album artist starting with the letter B (because if already on A then the top "All" item will be skipped), then trying to type the first one starting with the letter A (times represents the time it takes to hit the "All" item and continue to the first "real" album artist).

With auto-send selection to playlist:
  • 3.9 sec.
  • 3.9 sec.
  • 3.8 sec.

Without auto-send selection to playlist:
  • 1.2 sec.
  • 1.3 sec.
  • 1.1 sec.


Hope this helps smile.gif

Hey there guys, kinda new to foobar2k, and only just installed Columns UI.

Just wondering, is it possible (I'm guessing it is), to change the grouping options for individual playlists? For example, I have my main playlist sorting by artist, but because it seems to be set globally through all of the playlists, any 'compilations' that have a lot of different artists contributing then look ugly and not streamlined enough. Any way I can solve this?

Example pics:

Main playlist, nice and tidy


And then we come to a compilation album. Not so tidy.



If it is possible to have different grouping setups for individual playlists, is it also possible to have something like a primary sort by artist, secondary sort by album and then finally a tertiary sort by song number for the main playlist, while still retaining the look of the main playlist image provided?

Apologies if these questions have been answered a million times before. I have to say though, I am impressed, both by foobar2000 and Columns UI, top job! Gonna be working on some buttons to replace the CUI ones later today biggrin.gif Not sure how to change the colour of the toolbars etc though...

EDIT: Typos.

Yay, buttons are state-sensitive (i.e. when option is enabled they look different) - many, many thanks for that! smile.gif

You can set groupings in Preferences > Columns UI > Playlist view > Grouping tab

There is filter in drop down menu (when you double click grouping script) so you can have different grouping settings for different playlists (by playlist name)

For compilations you can use album artist tag (try something like this for grouping: %album artist% / %album%)

Cheers for such a quick reply 2E7AH!

Got it all working now, I just miss having an album show up on the compilation playlists, like I get for the grouped artists for my main playlist, but it's no biggie.

Quick pic of my new buttons!

EDIT: image artifacts lessens the quality somewhat, but you get the general idea.

You'll manage album show up I guess, whatever you mean by that smile.gif but why is your toolbar so tall and buttons blurred?

For some reason I decided to do the buttons 30x30 pixels in size. And about the blurry buttons, I can't seem to make the brush in Photoshop crisper sad.gif Turned up the brush hardness to 100%, but it's still quite soft on the edges.

It could be nothing or enqueue i.e.

Yes you can smile.gif Preferences->Display->Columns UI->Playlist view->Grouping - It's based on titleformatting, so you might take a look into the syntax if you are not familar with it.

Problem with your example pics, can be solved, if you set album artist on your compilation albums wink.gif F.ex. set it to "VA" or "Various Artists".

$tab() does now work in group titles. Thank you very much, musicmusic. Alas the horizontal line disappears when $tab() is used. I guess I can't have everything though or is there something you can do?
