[quote=juglesh,Jan 27 2004, 03:43 AM]

yes, please.  be great to have right align. any columns you have right aligned should stick to the right no matter the window size.  [/quote]
You misinterpreted me - i meant text alignment. You can currently use tab char to right align stuff but that wont affect the text alignment in the header.

Anyway, as far as i know the header control dont support what you want. Put the columns you need first and then you can scroll/resize or something to see the rest.

[quote]also, what would be great is if you could specify that a column would be 'unsqueezeable', that is, if you resize other columns, unsqueezable columns would not change size.  could make colums unexpandable, too. ie, if you squeeze other column, this column will not expand.

you could also specify certain columns to be the first (2nd, 3rd, etc) one squeezed.  maybe specify that a column would be the first to squeez, but only squeeze down to x characters or pixels.  and make columns last(2nd, 3rd, etc) to squeez.[/quote]
Could be done but I really dont think you would be able to set all these "sqeezable" settings to mimic what you want to happen everytime you resize columns.

[quote]

[quote]
truncate with an ellipsis character ("") when the text is too big to fit in the column? A nice extra on top of this would be a tooltip [/quote]-Haggis

i like this, too.
[/quote]done in alpha 6[quote] what about individual horizontal scroll bars for all (or specified) columns.  if x characters are truncated, show horizontal scroll bar.
[/quote] wouldnt the logical thing to do be resize the column? anyway, as foosion said it would be a mess and look a mess too.



[quote]oh, could you please post the url for your site? (musicmusic) maybe list it in your profile. thx[/quote]put somewhere in profile


[quote=Sid59,Jan 27 2004, 08:38 AM]getting better and better .. good job.

you changed from the right pane of playlists to tabs .. can you make it an option to use either?[/quote]Im not sure what you're asking, if its switch between playlists listbox and tabs you can in prefs, if its put playlists listbox on right side you cant right now.

[quote=kerpondile,Jan 27 2004, 10:15 AM]This is small feature, but is it possible statusbar to update instantly when moving the playing "slider".

hope you understand...[/quote]a buch of updating issues with status bar and window title fixed in alpha 6.

[quote=kalmark,Jan 27 2004, 03:33 PM]I like it, I like it!!!

Suggestions:
-Have a separate font setting for the playlist and the column names
-Adopt the seekbar from the default UI, or at least make "instant seeking" an option

Keep up the good work! As soon as someone thinks out how to use upNorth's formatting string, or something like that for foo_columns, I'm in' smile.gif[/quote]

1. will do
2. if it could just take it from the default ui i would wink.gif seekbar fixed up in alpha 6

[quote=ginipig1,Jan 27 2004, 05:32 PM]what do you mean foosion?

Since this dll is still in it's alpha stage, it still has some problems when it comes to resizing. The columns aren't smart enough (yet) to adjust their width automatically. A horizontal scroll bar is a good idea for interim releases.. but once all the bugs are ironed out, it won't be neccessary.[/quote] horizontally scrollable playlist was meant to be a feature rolleyes.gif

Maybe i could add a scrollbar less mode where columns expand/compress to take up all available space

[quote=Speek,Jan 27 2004, 01:42 PM]And another request: could you make the playlist 3D instead of flat look?[/quote] do you mean the frame/border around the playlist, or something else?


alpha 6:
- can move mouse between menus, sort of
- seekbar seeks to where you click, no instant seeking
- show ellipsis when text cropped
- global string for $puts
- balloon tips
- fixed redraw problems with rebar when moving things around
- buttons toolbar
- separated prefs into two pages
- other minor things
