Discuss suggestions and feature requests in the foo_ui_columns thread before posting them here. Include as much information as you can, post new suggestions in the unscreened section.
Note: These are only feature requests that may be implemented. The suggestions section is NOT a to-do list.
Have the ability to define different colours for the bars in the default vis for columns UI.
Meaning being able to split the bars into either two or three sections (both options would be nice) and assign different colors to those sections, i.e., one color for the bottom section and one for the top section. Bars should be divided according to window height.
Ability to use gradients for the bars could be really neat as well.
E.g. for play/pause button
eg. columns playlist a| column playlist b instead of what happens now when u add another playlist columns playlist a| column playlist a
It would be nice to have a single button that resets all filter panels to display “All”, similar to the new Clear Filter Search button (which only resets the search string).
eg. %userprofil%\ or %windir%\ …..
Make the standard Foobar2000 search filter toolbar functional with CUI to eliminate the need for the duplicate capability and allow the saving of favorites that the standard search filter provides
current functionality applies the same toolbar configuration to all layout presets. Specifically consider adding a toolbar config ability on the “layout” tab.
To avoid panel sizes from being changed accidentally (different from the current lock, which just keep the size when foobar is resized)
Make the background of Album List Panel invisible so background artwork can show through.
Make the Option hide and show titlebar.
A playlist automatically renamed to the name of the node (with a simple left click) to have different playlist's columns/groups views script by node name. (Sort of mix between “send to new playlist” and “send to automatic playlist”)
In order that the automatic selection could prefers the current selection in album art viewer, items properties and items details (and maybe other panels) (It's implemented in DUI: preferences > display, maybe it's possible to reuse this one)
or at least the possibility to select/order the sub-items of “information sections”
Allow use of title formatting with multivalue tag fields in filters and elsewhere Perhaps adopt the multivalue handling methods of Facets, or require the co-installation of Facets and enable the use of its multivalue methods in Columns
Who knows how many untagged items may be lurking in the depths of your library?!
Specifically to help properly sort Japanese, which is displayed in two different sets of characters but is sorted using only one. In general, allow the use of one method to sort content of filters and another method to display of filters (for example: display what is in %artist%, sorted based on %artistsort%)
1) handle same artwork types as Mp3tag: (front cover, back cover, other, icon, leaflet, media, lead artist, artist, conductor, band, composer, lyricist, recording location, during recording, during performance, video capture, illustration, band logotype, publisher logotype)
2) display multiple images for each artwork type
3) cycle through images either with a mouse click or automatically cycle
4) do #1 through 3 above with embedded images at least, perhaps also with images from other specified sources
5) click on image launches image in default image viewer
Display certain tags for album directly under album art image
Certain tags like: %date%, %album%, %album artist%, %compilation%, %itunescompilation%, %genre%
With 3.8.8, the the sort format is forced to be the same on all levels of a preset setting for a grouping. We request that the the force-sort setting be allowed to be different for each level of the preset for a group
Expand the Colours elements to be the same as the Font elements (be able to set custom font colours for each and all font elements)
Ensure that the search toolbar element works on all tag fields. Tag fields with dates and times are not recognized by the current search toolbar element.
various settings under File>Preferences that do not appear saved within .fcl file:
Display>Columns UI>filter: sort incoming, field settings
Display>Columns UI>playlist view: grouping scripts
Filter information as already noted above
These features will never be implemented:
serves no purpose, toolbar menu works fine
This occurs because common controls version 6 will use the font specified in the current theme instead (if one is specified).
( useful in not displayig redundant information in albums…)
I dont think this will work in any nice way. — musicmusic 2005/04/01 14:13
Check boxes in playlist beside each track to select certain tracks in a long playlist and perform actions on them (like in itunes).
reason: no different to using selections, etc.You're motherf***er idiots who wrote this ”> reason: no different to using selections, etc.”.
Checkbox column (marker column) is one of the most needed feature UI_columns lacks.
There is nothing in common between selection and checkbox. Try for example select several lines(songs) in playlist and then choose different song to play (your selection will be gone and you with you selection will f*** with all your songs to remember what was selected)Mind your language if you actually want to be taken seriously. At some point foo_utils had (and hopefully still does) a 'Collect tracks' feature which may be useful to you. — musicmusic 2009/04/10 19:12Well done for editing your swearing, but it broke the wiki formatting. Fixed. Anyway this is not changing anytime soon in the built-in playlist views. Assigning middle click to add to playback queue may be useful to you also. — musicmusic 2009/04/11 13:50
