How can I get the Date column to appear as blank if I didn't actually tag a date to the track? According to the Properties windows of some tracks, the Date field is blank, but it'll still show the date ripped/created, and I do not want that.

Amazing job!!!!

Tell me please dudes how to change all text colors to white?

I only found the option to change the panel with time to white.

And is it possible to add a bit display near the line with the bitrate display? For example - 1000kbps / 16bit. Forgive me if my questions are trivial, I just don't understand anything about this and have always used the standard theme of the player, and only recently installed a third-party theme!

I love this theme. Fantastic job! One note though that updating the bundled components to the latest causes the Now button on the lower right to stop working. Several components have updates. The two major ones foo_ui_columns-1.4.1 and foo_uie_albumlist-0.4.0-beta.7 may be responsible for Now to break.

Curious... what does the "Now" button do?

pervyzilla's avatar

Clicking it causes the currently playing song to become highlighted in the playlist view to the right. The playlist view remains fixed even when songs change. Clicking it allows the playlist view to scroll to the playing song.


I was planning to modify the script so that Now automatically invokes when songs change. This would eliminate the need to click it at all.

redorbroder's avatar

Aha... I didn't know that, thanks for the info.

My DarkOne config works like you describe, highlighting the songs played.

When songs in playlist or album change, the next song is highlighted.

Probably why I never used the "Now" button or even miss the function of it.

Strange it doesn't work for you.

pervyzilla's avatar

I am describing the NGP view specifically. It does highlight the currently playing track; however, I have a list of over 6,500 songs. I play my playlist in a random order, and it does not scroll to the next playing song. Now button scrolls right to the next song. Find will also do this, but Find changes the list. You should see this same behavior.

pervyzilla's avatar

The "Now" button performs the same function as the menu item: View -> Playlist View -> Activate Now Playing


The menu item works, but the Now button stops working after updating components.

Trying this masterpiece right now! Thanks.

Very good, I remember having it for many years but I need it for a new job and I can't find it. The solution: download it, it will surely appear after you have downloaded it.

TAKIMALY's avatar

Great skin. However, when playing DSD128 files, the bitrate is displayed incorrectly. Probably because the display has only four digits.

Amazing theme, the modded version with flat style looks even better, thank you very much.

Now Fooobar

the "NOW" button does not respond during playback to correct it please help me Jaroslav

pervyzilla's avatar

I found the broken script for this and fixed the button. To fix this, right click the Now button then click Splitter Settings... Click the Script tab on the next pop-up that appears. Scroll all the way to the bottom. The third line from the bottom has the issue. Replace the third line from the bottom with this:


$textbutton($mul($get(div.x),5),$get(btn.y),$get(div.x),24,Now,Now,COMMAND:View/Playlist view/Activate now playing;REFRESH,fontcolor:$get(col2),fontcolor:$get(col1))

pervyzilla's avatar

I faced this same issue. Note that this only happens when you update components that were bundled with the download. If you install only those components without updating, Now button works as intended.

pervyzilla's avatar

One thing I have done to resolve this issue is create a Keyboard Shortcut that invokes Activate now playing. I set the shortcut key to ALT+N. Now I simply press ALT+N on keyboard instead of clicking that button with my mouse. This works better for me and is quicker.

I have a 4K monitor and the is super small but I can change the font sizes as described in the installation manual which makes it readable however in the album list panel (ELP for example), the duration of the track is squished to where you cannot read the text. How do I resize those columns (track name, rating, duration)? I have a similar issue for the year/genre text in the group header. Thanks.
