foo_ui_columns is UI to which I was waiting eagerly just for this.It's very cool.
But since it's alpha status.I have big problem with this.I can't add colomns.huh.gif
foobar will be crash.However It's very useful for me.
I wolud like to this component to become more perfect.

Under Win2kSP4 the GUI shows up as an empty grey window.

Nevertheless congratulations for this nice approach, it's highly regarded. smile.gif

It looks very good already but it needs some work, e.g. trying to add a new column crashes it... The status bar font also should be separately configurable.

Im glad you find it useful, thanks for the report, fixed in alpha 2.

changes:
-fixed crash w/ new columns
-improved keyboard navigation of playlist (added home/end/pg up/page down/alt-up/alt-down/space actions & fixed up/down keys; also removed jerkyness/corruptions when scrolling past top/bottom of playlist area using up/down keys)
-fixed scrolling too far past end of playlist
-corrected font of playback order dropdown

The default strings are bad, probably that (?) Also for sorting when you click on columns it just sends the titleformatting spec to the sort playlist function, so things like %_is_playing% arent defined, leading to misleading results..

The entire window? At least its the right colour ph34r.gif Can you try with the new version? If its still broke i dont know whats causing it, i will look into it, thanks.

yes there's many things still to be done, e.g. implement drag-droping of files, rename playlists, fix up mouse selections of playlist, shift/ctrl modifiers for selections etc. which is the only reason its is alpha. So yes i will make the status bar font configurable, it is just a matter of time.

nice UI ..

- when i click on the 'time' or any other column, it will only sort one way. not in reverse
- i can't add files to an existing tab
- gonna add the ability to delete some of the toolbars? - play order, vis, and so on.

opps .. didn't read the very last part of your post. hope it all comes together.

i think it can be a much cleaner interface than the default one.

Alpha 2 is still just a grey form with a title bar and a status bar in Win2k (SP4). Maybe a missing dll, but there's no error message. I hope this can be fixed.

1. will be changed later
2. do you mean drag & drop? coming "soon"
3. there already should be a right click menu for that, does it not appear ?

Thanks for the hint, there was a couple diff. things about the way the status bar was made so that's given me some ideas.

Can you or anyone else with affected os try this version and:
- tell me what parts show up
- paste messages from console (they're set as errors so console should pop-up)

The latest version seems to have loaded up for me just fine, though it did output an error to the console.

CODE
ERROR (foo_ui_columns) : wm_create
ERROR (foo_ui_columns) : window handle: 852574 playlist window handle: 1114750 last error: 1400
ERROR (foo_ui_columns) : playlists window handle: 1180294 last error: 0


I also noticed that I can't set the column width for any columns; it just reverts back to the default.

thanks for testing, but now i am confused..

i fixed the first error 1400 but i dont get where the second one you've got is coming from..

Can you try the new debug version? link It should have a bunch of console messages again, paste them here if you can.

whilst im at it, alpha 3

link

changes:
- mouse movements captured outside of playlist (i.e. scrolls when mouse below/above playlist area)
- more keyboard actions added (enter, shift/ctrl modifiers)
- fixed width of columns not saved from prefs
- added provisional drag & drop support
- added separate config for status bar font
- ensure visible focuses items in the centre of playlist
- playlist renamer

that's enough for now, i think i got most of the things raised above

here is a shot of the window (everything default)


when i resize the columns, the pl goes back to the top and the scroll handle sticks where it was until it click it, then it goes to the top. same if i sort the columns.

will it be possible to sort by artist, then album?
umm...where's the play buttons?

thanks again.

Love this UI but couple of problems I've found:
1) This:

& sometimes this:

is fixed by resizing window but then I get:


2) Playback Order toolbar does not work. Order can only be changed via Menu Toolbar - Playback/Order

Yes, in the "colour" (!) field. The order is "text | selected text | background | selected background".

Seems OK for me, can you explain more? When you sort, the playlist core will scroll to the item with focus. I fixed one bug with scrollbar which would occur when sorting, please tell me if its ok with current version. i also dont know what's up with your menu, i can probably fix it anyway.

QUOTE (juglesh @ Jan 24 2004, 08:59 PM)

Whilst unintendedly, you already can (click album column, then artist columns). Not to mention you can set custom strings for sorting already.
QUOTE (juglesh @ Jan 24 2004, 08:59 PM)

I think you're confused, those are in the standard ui. If you meant are you going to add buttons, yes, someday.

I need more info because i dont get crashes. Can you post:
- what you where doing when it crashed
- how to reproduce (if known)
- crashlog
- operating system

Thanks.

Anyway, alpha 4 with all the above mentioned fixes.

changelog:
alpha 4
- fixed playback order drop down
- fixed scrollbar not redrawn on "ensure visible"
- fixed incorrect positioning of controls
- fixed systray menu not destroyed when click out of it
- added alternative playlist switcher using tabs

I think the tabs playlist switcher it looks a lot better/cleaner than the listbox, the rebar just needs a bit of sorting out.

While playing around I noticed that the 'Item height' resets when you go to preferences.
