 * for the GENRE column mode, images have to be stored in js_br3tt\jssb\images\genres\ folder

 * Some minor settings can be changed in window Properties (SHIFT + right click > Properties), use it carefully

 * Right Click on items for contextual menu for the selection
 * CTRL+T to toggle the columns toolbar
 * CTRL+B to toggle the scrollbar
 * Hold CTRL + Mouse Wheel to scale elements (useful for 'retina' screens)
 * Hold SHIFT + Mouse Wheel to scale group header and so the cover art size
 * F3 key to show now playing track (if present in library and not filtered)
 * F5 key to refresh covers
 * ... etc

Thanks by advance for bugs report and feedback :)

Thanks for your hard work. I've been using it for months. I am wondering how I can get the album covers loaded in background automatically. I've tried to modify the script, but I found it was too difficult. I would appreciate it if you could tell me how to do it or add this function in the next update.

Thank you for creating this Br3tt I've made some small changes and the only thing I need is middle click track list menu lol but it's a much appreciated upgrade from foo_uie_graphical_browser. 
I tried everything but can't get artist pictures to work for some reason.

Christmas is coming. Any surprises or "sugar"? :D (Big Grin) 
Am I the only one getting compile and syntax errors when applying this script on post v1.2.0 jscript?

I use JS Smooth Browser (downloaded from here…) and JScript Panel v1.2. Genre list in Smooth Browser is not the same as Album list. I asked marc2003…, he replied that "it doesn't appear to support multi-value tags". Is it possible to add such feature?

It works well. But How can I make the background transparent?
wow great work, i love what you're doing!

i have a couple of questions:

- i can't get the artist column mode find my artist pics :(
my artist pics are in "C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000\wsh_data\artists\%artist%\" and are named eg.: "Beck_2713261.jpg" (fetched with marc2003 script)
I tried all kinds of things, but they will just not be displayed..
  edit: it seems the script is looking for an artist.jpg inside the folder of the audiofiles.. but i could not find where this corresponding code in the script is :3 any help?

- is it possible to change the artist column view to %album artist% somehow? i usually listen to full albums only and now its splitting them.
  edit: okay, i found it, i can change that to whatever i like on line 39: tf_groupkey_artist: fb.TitleFormat("$if2($meta(artist,0),Unknow Artist)"),

J'aimerais diminuer encore le "row Height" car je le trouve trop espacé quand je réorganise par "Genre". C'est possible de le diminuer plus que le minimum proposé ?

Sinon tout est parfait Br3tt, merci encore !

Works great thanks!
Very nice browser however I noticed when using a large playlist as source and cursor follows playlist when a song stops and jumps (shuffle) to a different song the covers in grid mode won't load. They only load after I either move my mouse pointer over the grid, scroll the playlist, point a song on the playlist or when a play count is registered at the halfway point of the playing song. The loading seems to totally freeze, in other words if you leave foobar untouched when it transitions to a next song the browser will not load any image and just freeze. This does not seem to happen on playlists with less items (probably due to sufficient caching). Enabling cache image or diasbling it doesn't make a difference.
The key issue is thus, large playlists makes it not load the covers when you don't interact with foobar.
This is great! Jscript panel seems to be a whole lot easier to manage from a users perspective than WSH as well, making me even more excited to see you moving this style of playlist over! Quick question though. What part of the script is handling playlist sorting. Right now without looking at the script it APPEARS you are calling an if/then to make the playlist sort by album, and then follow additional sub rules to also break it up by artist. I want to eliminate these sub sorting rules and have it all ONLY sort by album (so no matter what is in the artist/albumartist/composer/etc tags it still only shows you ONE album.) I'm gonna take a wild guess and say lines 16-22 are handling the sorting rules, I'm just going to post this here anyway for you to either validate my assumptions or point me in the right direction. Seems as though my best bet would be to just change these values and watch what happens. Process of elimination is a great learning tool! (since I do have a basic understanding of this I should be able to make these changes without breaking the script and having to start over!)

EDIT: I just realized I posted this in your browser script page, my question involves your playlist script.......I'll leave it here until I move it over to your other page

When using the Genre column, albums with the 'Pop' genre tag don't have their own header and are instead listed in the header right before it ('Metal' in my case). 

If I change the genre to something like 'Top' 'Test' 'Pops' or 'P', then it'll show up as its own header. Kind of weird that only the 'Pop' genre is listed under a different header. 

Thanks for the component, works great otherwise!

Hey Br3tt aka Falstaff :). Thank you so much for creating these useful Foobar components. I donated you some points :). Keep up the good work!

I also have one small feature request for the JS Smooth Browser: there is currently no possibility to customize the Playlist Name where the Browser puts the library selection. I've seen that other library browsers have that and I believe it's a pretty important feature. Until you implement something, I had to hard-code the modification in your script.

Getting "This script requires the component JScript Panel v1.0.0 or higher." Even though I am running 1.1.1. Same for all the JS Smooth scripts. Cleared out the old JSPlaylist stuff but it still thinks I am using an old JScript component.
