MetroDos by travisx91 MetroDos by travisx91
This is an unofficial update to fanco86's Metro UI. I just made it work with the newest foobar, added some functionality that it desperately needed, and changed around the placement of a few things.

Changes:
Replaced Lyrics Panel 2 with Lyrics Panel 3 so the skin will work in the newest version of foobar
Realigned heart icon
Added filters for Artist/Album/Genre
Added Filetype and kbps details for playing track
Relocated playlist next/previous/open buttons
Enabled peaks for channel spectrum
Removed ugly '/' dividers in playlist
Removed '+' and '-' icons in playlist
Added Album art in playlist



If you have any problems please post as this is my first skin mod.

can you upadate it for 4k monitors? I'm willing to help.
I have some problems with fonts. I've been using your skin for few years now with foobar 2000 v1.3.6 on windows 7.

Pretty nice, but you've messed up few things:
- filters don't scale properly when changing window width (adding them on new PSS will fix this),
- "bitrate and codec" info is totally misaligned, try moving it down a little (or move it to ELP) to match the level of playlist and albums buttons,
- playlist "next/prev/open controls are overlapping "artist" button in albums view,
- artist string on playlist is misaligned, move it to the left by 2px.

Other than that, you did a really good job on updating Fanco's Metro. Props to you mate.

The skin is awesome dude, but when I tried to install it on my foobar2000 I got a limited version of it. Some features weren't displaying correctly and I'm missing the buttons for play/pause etc. Also some of the layout seems skeleton at best. All I have displayed perfectly is the background color and a few other colors like the pink. I have foobar2000 v1.2.8 and I'm brand new to this. Could you give me a detailed walkthrough on how to install the skin properly. I was using YouTube videos. Thanks in advance dude.

For anyone that wants to change the top right corner's rectangle color, do the following:

1) Right click the rectangle and click Splitter Settings.
2) Click on the tab Script and notice the first line. (Also notice that the rectangle consists of 2 colors) :

$gradientrect($sub(%_width%,10),15,10,40,r1-g1-b1,r2-g2-b2,verticle)

The r1-g1-b1 field represents the ''top color's'' RGB value of the rectangle.
The r2-g2-b2 field represents the ''bottom color's'' RGB value of the rectangle.

3)To find the RGB values of the colors you want use [link]
4)???
5)PROFIT!!!

Hello,
I have problem with playlists list. Everything is okay till I got small amount of playlists but when it grows and there isn't possibility to display all of them, then there appears a scrollbar. My question is how to delete it because in Albums or Artist also there are many of Icons and we can scroll them but scrollbar doesn't appear. In now played playlist if we have more tracks there also scrollbar isn't visible. I'd like to delete it also from playlists list. I'm sending 2 screenshots what I mean.

Yeah, of course, but sorry for my english, it's not my native language.

So, the hardest part to find was how to change colour of this [link] (photo from few posts below. You should right-click above the playlist/lyrics/biography space and choose Splitter Settings, then you go to Script ang here you have first line with RGB values, in my green version first line look like that "$gradientrect($sub(%_width%,10),15,10,40,102-238-17,51-102-0,verticle)" so you can just replace it or choose your own colors by replacing this two three-partial numbers (this may help [link]).

Now second element - text color, you just right-click on the active playlist space and choose Settings and then Field definition [link] change 2 and 4 value, you can do this like on my photo.

Changing the colour of bottom visualisation is really simple, you have to just right-click on it and choose Configure, you will see several colours that you can change.

And in the end just go to File -> Preferences -> Display -> Columns UI -> Colours and Fonts and change the colour of Inactive selected items.

I really hope it will be helpfull and that it is possible to understand this babble ;).

HOW TO FIX THE BORDERS OF FILTERS:

1) Go to Preferences (CTRL+P)
2) Display>Columns UI
3) On the tabbed interface go to "Filters"
4) Towards the bottom, there is a menu for edge style. Select "none" here.

I finished the transition to a white background. It took a lot more than I thought, so many items to change each color for, including the font colors. And I had to darken all of the images that came with the skin so they could be seen on a white background.
But here it is: [Link]

Changed width of playlist/album/artist:
I did a quick touch-up to my previous FCL file. Changed the width of the playlist/album/artist section from 1 album wide to 2 albums wide. I know a couple people asked for that so I did it real quick before trying the bigger change I'll do tomorrow if I have time.

I don't know if anyone is still interested in fixing this skin anymore. But I fixed the Quick Menu overlaying with the
Album and Artist buttons and a couple other things that were bothering me.
Here are 2 images of what I did: [Link 1] [Link 2]
And here is the FCL file: [Link 3]
Cheers!

P.S. I'm using foobar2000 1.1.13

Done. Except I needed to change the whole skin because the icons are transparent/white, so they are invisible on a white background. So you'll need the whole skin that I uploaded. Link is in my comment above.

Also I agree with Staneck, a themed scrollbar for the playlist view would complete it.
Or instructions on how I can do it myself...

If there is no artwork, the main playlist view shows the stub correctly, but the 'Now Playing' bit at the bottom shows just a grey square.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
I can't see anything wrong in the code that could cause this, and I've tried messing around with as many settings I can think of!

I have a problem with my eeepc, low resolution netbook (I think 800x600): with the old Metro everything was well visualised, unfortunately with yours there are text overlaps!
can you fix it please? a bigger font would also be welcomed for low screens.
The lyrics indeed works now, thanks!
