foo_playlist_tree is a very customizable media library, with support for hierarchical playlists as well as dynamic playlists. Dynamic playlists can be generated using the same syntax as foo_playlistgen_ex. It can operate in its own window or as a column_ui panel.

More information and downloads are available at:

After playing with this great extension here goes some suggestions to developper:

- Move right context-menu specific for the penale to s subcategory, and make available the normal fb2k right-click context-menu. For ex. there's no way to select a folder and get 'properties'context menu, so you have to add it to a playlist reselect all files and then get 'properties'.

- Remove progress bar embedded and make it a floating window (use less space when no needed).

- It seems that there's some kind of lenght limit for display: i.e. this is my display album panel query for 'by artist':
CODE
[$if(%album artist%,%album artist%,%artist%)]|'('[%date%]')' [%album%]|$if(%album artist%,[[%disc%.][$num(%tracknumber%,2) - ] ]%artist% - $if2(%title%,%_filename%),[[%disc%.][$num(%tracknumber%,2) - ] ]$if2(%title%,%_filename%)) - $if($strstr($lower(%favorite%),fly),'[')
$repeat(●,%rating%)$repeat(□,$sub(5,%rating%))
$if($strstr($lower(%favorite%),fly),']')


in your panel it gets cuted like this:
CODE
[$if(%album artist%,%album artist%,%artist%)]|'('[%date%]')' [%album%]|$if(%album artist%,[[%disc%.][$num(%tracknumber%,2) - ] ]%artist% - $if2(%title%,%_filename%),[[%disc%.][$num(%tracknumber%,2) - ] ]$if2(%title%,%_filename%)) - $if($strstr($lower(%favorit


- Make option to set sort (and sort recursively) as default.
- Custom colour background/ etc... like album list panel to fit colour configuration.

Hope this help future developpement smile.gif

BTW I'm getting random crashes while closing foobar (due to this plugin), so the playlist tree is not saved and I have to rebuild everything again.

Oh, and I don't know why but I can't get my tracks with the posted formatting string to be sorted by tracknumber while it works for albun panel list unsure.gif

Keep up the good work, it's much appretiated.

I've upped the text size limit on queries from 256 to 1024... I'm a little lazy right now to do it the way it should be and dynamically allocate the space... (plus that is slower)... let me know if this still isnt enough...

Queries are now sorted automatically

Custom background, text and line color are now supported.

Basic search is now implemented.

I've added somewhat better unicode support. (previous versions would not recognize nested files that had unicode names.... now they are added, but if you edit the text of the name it gets munged.)

The treeview now takes up the entire panel, and the progress bar hides itself after 3 seconds of inactivity.

For some reason I still get the same limit (in display, where I think it's really needed).

Everything works fine now, thanks.

Cool cool.gif
The only downside of this is that there's an ugly icons white background sad.gif Maybe disabling the use of icons will be the easiest way to solve this smile.gif

I don't find it blink.gif

Thanks. For some reason the progress bar while working, is flashing, I mean it doesn't go slowly from left to right. Instead it goes really quickly from left to right over and over until the progress stop.

I don't mean to be a PITA but I hope that you'll want to take a look at this whenever you got time and motivation wink.gif:

And BTW, maybe you'll think about implementing the use of
CODE
field

because right now we can just use
CODE
%field%

wich doesn't allow multiple instances of the same item in different trees (that's supported in the album panel), i.e. I have a file tagged with %artist%=A and %artist%=B and I want to display it in 'A' and 'B'. Currently with %artist% i'll go in a tree named 'A,B'.

Thanks for this excellent plugin. I love how it's customizable. You can almost make it display what you wish and how you wish!

My icons come up correctly on my version and that's something that took me a long time to figure out... I'm not sure why it wouldnt work for you... does it work for anybody else?

The search is available from the right click menu as "Find..." and also as C-F if the focus is on the tree....

I'm working on having the search come up as a cool popup window inside the tree panel... it looks much cooler that way

I'll take a look at the edit length thing... must be more complicated than i had thought...

As to foosions last post about dynamically allocated stuff effecting the time in an edit box, no, obviously it doesnt make a difference there... I had thought the problem was in my actual search function, where dynamically allocating a string 10,000 times would affect performance... thanks for the heads up on the utf8_from_window class I'll look into that...
