I just started working with skins for Foobar2000 and would like to thank you! Nice job with DarkOne4!
After spending some time and research all is good but I do have a couple of small glitches I can't work out and I was hoping you might point me in the right direction.
1) The Album List pane 'prop' metadatd is all jammed to the left. I tried the configure button in the splitter control but no luck. (Tried to drag it but won't save) The first column is always just one letter and dot dot dot or just dot dot dot .
2) The 'pane-status-bar' selection on the control panel works but the text in the status bar is unreadably small. Any way to change that?
everything else is perfect!
New to skins in foobar2000 and after browsing a few i stopped to this, it's really good looking and offers the functions i need too.
I'm missing just a quick way to switch the outputs since i'm using a DAC/AMP for headphones and also have onboard sound and monitor sound and such, would love if i can find a guide or something to add a button (ok, adding a button i managed to do) to select the output.
Or even better, define a button for each output i need (like just changing from 1 to 2 needed).
Thanks for your work
I'm not Tedgo, but take a look at the software SoundSwitch I think that is exactly what you are looking for however instead of a button in foobar you would set a hotkey on your keyboard that would toggle between your desired outputs. IMO this is a much cleaner solution and offers much more customization.
Hi Tedgo, Hope you are doing well and taking care of yourself! Glad to see you are active once more I have had a configuration question for many years and am finally annoyed enough to ask for help about it haha.
When in View 1 on DarkOne (Metro Version) when I have an album loaded and it included an extremely detailed (long) artist tag it doesn't truncate which means I am unable to see the track title! This is problematic on albums that are either very meticulously tagged, classical albums for example.
I believe the setting would be related to ELPlaylist, but I'm lost on how to fix it. I've been able to disable the artist column completely which is not ideal but it'd be great if it truncated after say 60 characters or so. I've looked through the foobar/ELplaylist documentation but I couldn't find anything definitive. I also wouldn't know where to make the change without potentially breaking other functionality!
Was really hoping you could help me out!
I attached an image of an example of the issue in action. Cheers!
Finally decided to take an actual stab at this and resolved it myself quite quickly! Thought it would be more difficult to track down honestly. In any case, should anybody wonder how to do this here are some instructions.
While in "View 1" of DarkOneV4, right click the right pane (general area to the right of cover art panel) and in the context menu select "Settings".
Now a panel called "ELPlaylist Settings" should have appeared, if not you got the wrong settings button.
Go to the "Field Definition" tab and you're going to edit the "COLUMN.ONE.TEXT" field.
In this field I use the "$cut(%stringname%, desiredLength)" function to truncate the string. In this case %track artist% and %artist%, you can do this to any other tag data as well as long as it is a string.
So replace this field with the following: $if(%length%,[$cut(%track artist%,20) $char(9679) ],[$cut(%artist%,20) $char(9679) ])%title%[ '('%subtitle%')'][ - %length%]
You can edit the number in the 'desiredLength' position as shown in step 4 to any number you want. I use '20' because that works for me, if you have a >1080p display you may want to increase that number, it also depends on your font size set in foobar.
Hopefully this helps somebody!
sorry but I dont understand your instructions at all to make the extension work with my 4k display
the pdf readme in the download does not have steps how to make it work with 4k display and your instructions you provide here in the submission text make no sense to me

I have no idea what above means I tried to figure it out but I cant
When adding folders, I was wondering why some folders are showing individual files as opposed to being neatly combined as one folder (as shown on the album called "Valiant Blade")?
Is there a way to fix this UI "issue"?
I just had the same problem with an album. It is solved by adding to each track in the [Album Artist] tag: Various Artists. You can do it from Foobar2000 or with Mp3tag. I hope it works for you, Cheers
