Thanks for the Theme. It is Awesome. In Library panel stacks scrollbar can be activated by double click. Is it possible to do the same for EL playlist. I made the scrollbar show but it does not go with the theme.

Nice skin. However, it seems playlists cannot be sorted alphabetically...?

really nice theme, my new one.
I have some questions :

1) Is it possible to hide the windows frame ? (with close/minimize)
2) So we can't change the size of the "Now Playing" text cause it's dynamic, but can we change the font ?
3) Any idea for letting the biography thingy to automatically download artists pictures in .../artist/album folders ? 

Thanks for your help and your theme !

Can anyone duplicate this? Right click on ES Playlist. Click Options/View Style. Switch from FLAT to LAYERED.  Then go back to FLAT again. Does your switch back? Mine stays in LAYERED view, even though it says FLAT. 

The only way to bring it back to FLAT is to end foobar2000 in the task manager...so it doesn't save on exit.

Hey Tedgo... I made a switchable scroll-bar for the ELP view but I'm unable to switch directly from ESP to ELP as of doing this. (I can go from ESP to NGP, then to ELP). Is there a proper way to do it? Thanks! 

Never mind...Got it to work.

Hi there. I'm fairly newish at understanding all the coding and complexity of foobar. I was using 3.0 and really liking it. Just installed your new 4.0 version.. Looks great except it doesn't seem to keep my file explorer tree the way 3.0 did. Its just doing all albums (which is way to huge to start off with). I've got a screenshot comparing the two here. Anyone else having, or solve this problem? I'm sure its something simple that i'm missing.3.0 and 4.0 tree comparison

I have been messing around with the sizing of elements for a UHD 4k display.  I have most of the components resized except for the following:

1. The spacing inbetween the waveform graphic and current playing track information.
2. The column spacing where the RATING and the YEAR are.

Problem areas marked in red:

IF anyone knows where to change these settings please let me know.  

Thanks!

Superb foobar skin - absolutely the best for the me.    

I have 2 requests that would make this theme even better:

1st request - 
I'll second the call for another digit in the sample-rate (kbps) increasing it to 5 digits, or possibly a customization option that could be configured for 5 digits.

2nd request -
Is there an easy method to increasing the font size (slightly) of the component button labels?  On high resolution large screen monitor the effective font size appears tiny for the 
component labels and they are difficult to read. 

Thanks in advance!   :)

Hi Tdego,
I'm continuing to love DarkOne v4. I'm having a problem with the installer in a second account on my computer, however; it runs (requring an admin password), and the PDF comes up, but foobar remains unskinned. Any idea what the problem could be? Are there instructions for manually installing the skin?

otherwise look up your foobar2000/themes/darkone_v4 folder

I have 3 questions/problems:

1. I did a fresh install of v4 and I do not get the standard "windows" frame at the top. So i cant minimize/move/close the window using the border or icons at the top left. I am on Windows 8.1 x64

2. How does the quick search at the bottom work? My previous experience with other foobar layouts it would filter the library. That doesnt seem to be the case with this search. How can I make it do a quick filter of the library?

3. How do I update the playlist side with the currently filtered selection? If I click on an artist or album, I would like to see that in the playlist view. I believe it functioned like this in a previous version.

Haven't considered that high resolutions...

Maybe i will recreate the theme when i have time...
I thought about dynamic sizes for the buttons/images and text, so it will look the same on every resolution.

But for the moment there is no solution for this problem, sorry...
And it will last some time before i will have enough time for recreating the theme...

Tedgo, thank you for all your hard work on this amazing skin. Without it, I wouldn't even bother using Foobar2000. I was thinking about changing some of the colours but there are two things I can't change. They are the buttons like BIO and the button labels on play, stop for the bottom panel.  They are both the same bluish-green colour.

I can answer some of this for a fellow 69'er. :) The little symbols for the panel buttons are in a file called Signs.png. You have to edit this in paint program like Photoshop. I looked for those other labels (Bio, etc) but I can't find those. It's like they appear out of thin air.

The button colours can be found in each panel stack splitters settings (Script --> Per Track tab --> // ----- BUTTON-VARIABLES)
The variables are called col1 and col2.

I should set them as global variables at the main splitter... maybe when i update the theme (someday... ;))

Hello, love the theme man, love it.  I have a question regarding the Artwork viewer.  Choosing the "custom pictures" option and going into "properties", will allow you to define 5 images for the viewer to display. I would like to add a couple of addl pictures to the config and am hitting a problem.  I don't get any errors.  I am not really a programmer, I can write a decent Unix shell script but that's it.

My thoughts are that there's another linkage that I can't find.  I'm really trying to teach myself the coding language which is why I'm screwing around with your code.  :)  Can you show me where the addl changes need to be made?  If you can tell which script needs to be edited I'll try to figure out what to put there.

I've detailed the changes that I've made below.

Thanks tedgo and again, I love the theme.

Cliff


All of the changes I've made are in the "DarkOne Cover Panel" WSH script:

var a_arr = new Array("Picture 1", "Picture 2", "Picture 3", "Picture 4", "Picture 5", "Picture 6", "Picture 7");
var b_arr = new Array("Front cover", "Back cover", "Disc", "Icon", "Artist", "Artist2", "Event");

I appended the new definitions here:

var e_arr = [];
e_arr[5] = gdi.Image(imgPath + "NoImage.png");
e_arr[6] = gdi.Image(imgPath + "NoImage.png");

var f_arr = [];
f_arr[5] = window.GetProperty(a_arr[5],"");
f_arr[6] = window.GetProperty(a_arr[6],"");

I can see the new options in the "Properties" window:

Picture 1    $directory_path(%path%)\artist      
Picture 2    $directory_path(%path%)\front  
Picture 3    $directory_path(%path%)\back  
Picture 4   $directory_path(%path%)\cd  
Picture 5    $directory_path(%path%)\inside  
Picture 6    $directory_path(%path%)\artist2  
Picture 7    $directory_path(%path%)\event

Tedgo... Do you happen to know which exact font is being used for the left and right WSH panels?

I have noticed the font for "PEAK / SPEC." doesn't match the fonts for the other button labels. If you rename PEAK / SPEC. to "TIME" (for example) it doesn't look anything like the TIME label above it. I think part of it is because the PEAK / SPEC is in the splitter settings and everything else is in the WSH panel. The fonts for the right and left WSH panels aren't imputed. Only btn_font exits. 

Thanks!

:icontedgo:
tedgo Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2015
The font is the same as for "PEAK/SPEC." but is rendered differently...
You can find the font line 8 in the "DO 4.0 Global Script.js" file in ...\foobar2000\themes\DarkOne_v4.0\Others\WSH Scripts folder.

I'm almost done my new display panel. There was nothing wrong with Tedgo's, I just wanted to add a blue florescent Track Display on it. It's between the Track (etc) numbers and the peak bar. I made other enhancements too. I don't want to steel Tedgo's thunder (especially since it's mostly his code), so I'll post the image somewhere else, if anyone is interested. In about a week, do a search for "Darkone V4.1" :)

I heard about a bug in Chrome/Opera that could cause this issue in utf-8 character encoding.
But this should be solved in the meantime...

It works for me since one or two months, but also had this issue before.
So i guess chrome was the origin of this bug... can't swear of that, though...

tedgo... For the FL display in the bottom middle (not sure what you call it) is there any chance you can make the song title appear there and also make it scroll if it's long enough?  Sort of like a SACD player or the old MD players. Thanks.

Update...I was able to put the song title in the display area but decided to forgo the scrolling. I couldn't figure out how to have the scrolling limited to the display only. Plus it seemed slow, anyway.
