I figured it would be handy to have a sidebar panel that displayed some info (via TAGZ) about the currently playing or currently selected track. This will probably be a little redundant for people with complex/complete playlist displays, but for others that have limited info displayed in their playlist I hope this will be useful to you.

Check out a basic screenshot here.

The panel has two modes:
  • now-playing mode - displays info according to the currently playing track
  • follow cursor mode - displays info about the focused item in the current playlist
Switch between these modes by either double left-clicking or single middle-clicking on the panel. It also supports drag and drop in both directions: dragging a file over the panel will temporarily show the info for that track, and dropping will display that info until you left click.

You can configure the display for all modes using a single TAGZ formatting string in the preferences. It supports the regular TAGZ and special fields (%_isplaying%,%_ispaused%,%_time_total%,etc), plus a few specific to the panel:
  • %_trackinfo_mode%
    a string containing either "Dropped","Follow cursor", or "Now playing" according to the current display mode of the panel.
  • %_trackinfo_dropped%, %_trackinfo_followcursor%, %_trackinfo_nowplaying%
    one (and only one) of these strings will be "1" (the others will be an empty string), again depending on the current display mode of the panel (useful for $if functions)
  • %_trackinfo_notrack%
    set to "1" when the panel has no track to display (happens when starting up in now-playing mode)
To get a line-break use $char(10). You can also change the alignment of a single line by putting either $char(1)C or $char(1)R at the very start of the line, where the C and R stand for Centered and Right (left aligned is the default). Below I have included the script responsible for the above screenshot, so check that out if you are unsure. Obviously you'd want some technical info displayed, but that is just an example. Most of you guys are much better at this than I am anyway.

Latest version (0.1.1):
foo_uie_trackinfo.dll
foo_uie_trackinfo-src.zip

Note: Make sure you download foo_ui_columns v0.1.2 beta 4 (or newer) if you are expecting to add this panel to a sidebar (as seen in the screenshot).

Uses some code from kode54's foo_osd, and foosion's foo_history.

Formatting string used in screenshot:
CODE
$if(%_trackinfo_notrack%,
$char(10)$char(10)$char(1)CNo track playing,
$char(1)Ca0caf3%_trackinfo_mode% mode$char(10)
$char(1)C$if(%_isplaying%,$select($add(1,$mod(%_time_remaining_seconds%,4)), ,.,..,...),)$char(10)
dcab50Artist:$char(10)
$char(1)C4040ff%artist%$char(10)
dcab50Title:$char(10)
$char(1)C4040ff%title%$char(10)
dcab50Release:$char(10)
$char(1)C4040ff%album%)


You can stop reading now wink.gif.

Did you right click and say save as? Try just clicking on the link, as it takes you to another webpage where you can click to download (guess its angry about the referrer), and it worked for me.

I'm using Firefox. The original link took me to a page and from there I DLed the ZIP. I'll try again - maybe it got corrupted in the download or something.

edit: got 'em that time. Thanks,
