TheaterMode / What does <settings enableScaling="true" /> actually do?
« on: August 19, 2020, 12:34:16 AM »
I changed it back and forth and it doesn't seem to do anything.

On the other hand, I've got a few bug reports from people using lower resolution monitors. Unlike the main UI, TheaterModes don't seem to scale properly when the Windows 10 scaling of the primary monitor changes from 150% to 100%.

Any clues? Or do I have to fix the bug by making different versions for different monitor scaling?  :-\

MusicBee Wishlist / Option to Hide Icons in the Tab Bar
« on: August 17, 2020, 10:16:58 PM »
When I right click on a Tab, there are options only to display Icon+Text or Icon Only. Can there be a Text Only option?

Example:
Top is the original. Bottom is the desired result.



I can fit many more tabs and have a cleaner interface if I can remove the icons. Thanks a lot  :D  :D  :D

Skins / Acrylic / Blur effects for a window?
« on: March 06, 2020, 07:43:12 PM »
Is there a way to add blur effects or transparency effects to the background of a window, similar to Fluent Design in Windows 10 and Aero in Windows 7 or Vista?

Rainmeter seemed to be able to do that despite it's not a WPF app. I think there are some new APIs that allow that to happen.

I like my fonts Big.
I like my window Black.
I like my artist photos Round.
I like my window color Feminine.

Mmmmmm...  ;D

This is pretty straightforward. It's a wall of all the tracks coming up on your playlist, which looks cool and was something done in Zune back then as well. It works better when you randomize your playlist, but I coded it so that it will appear random regardless.

Works only up to 16:10 screens. If you use wider screens you will need to add more columns in the code.

Note that it takes a bit of time to load at first... since it's loading up 28 album covers at once.

Thanks to Freddy for inspirations. 👍

If you're using it, please post a screenshot of how it looks on your end! That'd be very helpful.

I have music files on both my laptop and my home server, so when I'm at home I use MusicBee to access music on both my local drive and my network drive. I set up my MB with the Library Explorer panel as a folder filter at the top right so I can switch folders quickly:



It works very well in Album and Tracks view as well as Tracks view. As you can see, there are no duplicates on the album as shown.

However, when I use Artists and Album Cover content views, files from my local drive (D:\) will still show up, despite I had filtered it to just the network drive (M:\). As a result, it shows the two files for the same song but from the two different drives:



Thanks for reading the bug report. Hope it helps!

Bug is fixed. Thanks for the very quick response! 😎

My MainPanelMargin.Left is set to 8, because I like things thick. 😂

For example, here I have this very bright orange album selected:


And when go to another tab, you can still see that orange album peeking on the left where the margin is:

Polls / Re: Last.fm Usage

Yes, because I like hoarding statistics and it's also sunk cost fallacy... That aside, it's quite nice and sentimental to see how my taste and mind changes over the years. It's like writing my journal, but it writes itself.

Thanks to Freddy I managed to make player controls appear on mouseover, which is neat:



Also I updated all the links at the top to my Github. It makes more sense to host there rather than Google Drive.

Thanks Freddy 😎

I noticed that it's too dark and will make it brighter in the next release too.

Keep the bug reports coming. 😁
