The color of preferences window isn't the same as the rest
That is now fixed, please redownload and confirm.

QUOTE (icedtea @ May 8 2010, 10:08) *
Even upon activation the playlist doesn't get selected ...
That is fixed as well provided that you have chosen the "Activate on single click" option. Otherwise the playlist won't get selected but only made visible in the tree.
Look at this new section in the help page.

yup it is all fixed now thanks
but the themed mode on windows 7 is still not working i.e. skinned selection frame
Also just a suggestion wouldn't it be better to move all preferences to the preferences page instead of the context menu?

Why does the foo_plorg panel flicker twice really fast each time a playlist is selected? It seems to happen only sometimes when "Activate on single click" is disabled, but every time when it is enabled.

Is this happening to anyone else?

Thanks for the updates. Just wondering if this red-dotted line is intentional. It appears when i click and hold on a playlist/folder.

The problem is aesthetic since i dont have red configured anywhere in my foobar or windows color settings.
Would be nice if it did follow the colors i configured. smile.gif

I may look at supporting the theme .. but not in a near future.
Regarding the preferences, some are left in the context menu in case you want to have several instances and they are specific to each instance, while those from the preferences page are global.

I will investigate at some point in time.

I see ... it will be fixed in the next version. In the meantime, you can just set black & white as custom colors, the red should disappear.

BTW, I have uploaded Version 0.9 which fixes the red dotted line issue and also introduces full drag & drop capabilities (e.g. with other foobar windows or other applications).

I've seen in the forums that Foobar, unlike Itunes and Winamp, is a playlists based player. For that reason I think foobar must have a powerful tool for playlists management.
I Like your plugin, but here are a few suggestions:
- 1: When You select a folder or a playlist, the "F2" shortcut to edit It isn't working (accessibility issues)
- 2: Imagine that I have a lot of playlists (It makes sense in a playlists based player), and I have a lot of folders.
---- 2.1: If I change from Columns UI to Default UI. Result, I've lost all the folders and the playlists order (unless I return to Columns UI). That is an undesirable behavior.
---- 2.2: If I accidentaly delete the element, again, the data will be gone, lost.

What I suggest You, is to not store the folder data in the element configuration. Store It in the plugin configuration, another file or folder.

Maybe You can store the folder's names in the plugin configuration, and store folder's ID in playlist as a property using the playlist properties API

Thanks for the suggestions.
1. is already in the todo list and will be introduced inn the next version
2. It is not possible to use the playlist properties because the panel may have multiple instances. I am thinking of another solution to address the issue.

Here's an idea for a cosmetic feature in the treeview display. An option for the user to specify a 16x16 png/icon that would be rendered beside the name of any actively playing playlist instead of the rectangular box. Example: iPod View is the playlist that is playing in the pic...

The flickering is now eliminated, at least on XP, both during selection and when resizing the panel. Thanks to someone with Vista or Seven to confirm.

It should be fixed as well.

BTW, Version 1.0 is now out and introduces a lot of new features and bugfixes, including titleformatting for nodes, reworked drag & drop operations, the ability to copy content across playlists, etc. .... Please also read the documentation which is now complete, and provide feedback.

Agreed! Now foo_plorg has everything what the original playlist manager is able to do and so much more!

You cannot (at the moment) .... the plugin inherits the default fonts from either CUI or DUI.

I have encountered another bug
Using CUI+PLORG+Filters. I have it set up so that there is a folder named 'Library' with 'Filter Results' and 'Filter Results (Playback)' playlist.
Using these steps
Start fb2k > Select another artist in filters other than the one selected right now and double click to play > select a different artist in filters
makes the 'Filter Results' playlist popout of the folder and to the bottom of the PLORG tree

The problem is rather in the way that CUI filters manages 'Filter Results' and 'Filter Results (Playback)' playlists, but I will try to implement a workaround in the next version.

Hi, and sorry if this has been answered before, but is it possible to display the length of playlists (as in x days, y hours etc.) with this component somehow?

One tiny feature request: When dropping files from one playlist to another it automatically selects the playlist which the files have been droped in to,
if possible could the selection stay with the source playlist?

It seems that everytime I close and start foobar, my playlists suddenly move from their respective folders to folder called "new" (not created by me). Have I missed some option about saving configuration or is this a bug?

To be exact, I have folders called "genre" and "rating", in addition to "default", but my playlists keep jumping around. Might this be because I have last.fm radio on one playlist, which (I think) creates itself from scratch when starting foobar?

I have the newest version of foo_plorg.
