Skins / A Completely Skinned Lyrics Panel (Now Playing Tab)
« on: July 11, 2022, 06:40:17 PM »
I've been using this a lot recently and can't help but think it would blend a lot better with skin colours everywhere. In its current state, it looks half done and sorta stands out.
There wouldn't be any need to create new elements for it - I believe the Right Sidebar colours (bg and fg) should look just fine on it.

Bug Reports / Inconsistent Setting (Precede With A Blank Line)
« on: June 21, 2022, 03:38:43 PM »
As I was experimenting with layouts and settings from this thread:
I noticed the following oddities which may need addressing...

The precede with a blank line setting in the customise panel (Album and Tracks view), is behaving differently for the compact grid and detailed list layouts.
In the compact grid, the fields Disc# and Disc Count do not omit a line when the setting is disabled (expected behaviour).
Whereas in the detailed list, the same fields do not seem to be respecting the setting when it is disabled. Perhaps it's intentional? I'm not sure.

The show settings button appears to be active across this whole region. It is not confined to its boundaries.

Skins / Lunar Eclipse
« on: May 28, 2022, 05:52:49 PM »
This is a replica of my Oblivion skin which features warmer colours.
Download it from the add-on link here.
For the progress bar to be displayed as intended, an update to MB 3.5.8121 or higher is needed.

Skins / Dedicated Elements For These Arrows
« on: May 27, 2022, 05:51:30 PM »
arrows in the tag inspector

Currently, the default and disabled states of these arrows share the same colour element (Controls.Arrow.Default).
It would be great if the disabled state could get its own element (e.g Controls.Arrow.Disabled).

back/forward navigation arrows

Currently, the default and highlight states of these arrows share the same image element (PanelForward or PanelBack).
It would also be great if the highlight states had their own image elements.

Using MusicBee version 3.5.8146 P

- enable the thumbnail browser (TB) on any tab/node that supports it.
- restart MB from that specific tab. Note that on startup, the first row (All <field>) in the TB isn't selected.
- then go to the playlist explorer (in any tab except the one in step 1) and select any playlist from there.
- upon returning to the tab used in step 1, you'll notice that the TB's first row is now selected?

It automatically has a lowlight colour applied to it. Why is that so?
It doesn't appear to be a skin dependent issue since the same behaviour occurs in the default skin.

I don't mind elaborating on the problem with gif's and screenshots if my explanation above isn't reproducible.

Skins / Disabled Fields
« on: April 09, 2022, 11:09:31 AM »

1 on the screenshot represents a disabled field...but so does 2.
So I'm wondering if there's a particular reason for why 1 isn't also receiving its colour from Controls.InputControl.Disabled, like 2 is?

I've checked a bunch of other skins and they all have a default grey for that field.
In the Tag Editor, disabled fields also appear in grey instead of using whatever colour is defined in Controls.InputControl.Disabled.

Skins / Oblivion (Dark Skin)
« on: April 03, 2022, 01:18:27 PM »
A dark MusicBee skin like any other, with the only exception of the progress bar that somewhat aims to break away from tradition.
Download it from the add-on link here.
For the progress bar to be displayed as intended, an update to MB 3.5.8121 or higher is needed.

Skins / Field Highlight Colours In The "Set Displayed Fields" Window
« on: March 29, 2022, 05:01:08 PM »

The (field) highlight on this pop up window is receiving its background colour from Menu.DropDown.Highlight
Wouldn't it be better if it also received its border colour from that element instead of fetching it from InlineMenu.ParentItem.Highlight?

Skins / Option To Disable Moving Track Text In The Player Panel
« on: March 27, 2022, 04:27:46 PM »
This would provide for having a much less 'nervous' constantly moving progress bar.
Thanks hiccup. I hadn't looked at it that way at first but looking at it now, this actually gives the skin a purpose.
(I'm now aiming to have as much minimal movement in and around the progress bar as possible)

So with that in mind, it would be nice if we had a skin setting that permitted the disabling of moving track text for songs with long titles.

So instead of this:

I would like for the skin to display this on a permanent basis:

1. Not sure if this one is a bug or intended behaviour...but I cannot access other views besides the 'Tracks' view when using the 'Play History' node.

2. Attempting to view the bookmarks node using the 'Album and Tracks' view results in the following:

Beyond MusicBee / Your Nomination For Best Song Of All Time?
« on: February 03, 2022, 09:49:34 PM »
For a long time now, I always thought I would never have an answer for this kind of question...but I do now.
I'm convinced that Michael Jackson's Heal The World is simply the best song of all time.
If you'd like to have a listen, check out the YouTube video. (as I believe it is this song's best form, courtesy of the comments section)

TheaterMode / Additional Element Attribute (Vertical Alignment)
« on: January 23, 2022, 12:28:05 PM »
In addition to the existing (horizontal) "align" attribute , can vertical alignment also be supported? (e.g vAlign="Top/Center/Bottom")
Thanks in advance.

TheaterMode / Motion Pictures (Fullscreen TM)
« on: January 16, 2022, 01:46:34 PM »
A theater mode with a number of layouts - currently has three views but there'll most likely be a fourth later on.
The concept is based off of redwing's Rdio Style and Bee-liever's Mod'ernaire.

Download it here

How To Apply:
Extract the downloaded zip to this folder ...\MusicBee\Plugins\TheaterMode.List
Inside MusicBee, go to Preferences -> Tags(1) -> under custom tags -> Define New Tags...
   then copy & paste the formulae located at the start of the Motion Pictures.xml file to their respective virtual tag slots.

Default Layout

There are four panels available (lyrics, comment, artist biography and upcoming tracks)
Lyrics can be accessed by clicking the arrow on the right of the dotted line.
The track comment can be viewed upon clicking the arrow on the left.
Clicking an artist name will bring up the biography.
Clicking on the bottom half of the album cover will open the upcoming tracks panel.
On the other hand, clicking the top half will open an enlarged version of the artwork.
A click on the far-left of the artist picture will play the previous track.
A click at the center will play/pause the playing track...while a click on the far-right will play the next track.
Double clicking the (playing track) title will open up the now playing assistant.

Layout 2 (colours are skin-adaptive)

Clicking the icon on the top left will alternate between the lyrics and the upcoming tracks.

Layout 3 (endeavour1934's XBox Music Style)

The icons on the bottom right open up the lyrics, now playing list and assistant.
Clicking on any of the 5 squares located on the top right will apply an overlay to the artist picture.

Whenever I open MusicBee...
Unless I've made a search or played a song from the "soundcloud search" service, I am unable to play any soundcloud songs located in my play history.
I'd love to be able to play these songs without first having to perform an activity in the soundcloud search service (if it's at all possible). Thanks in advance.

TheaterMode / "onDoubleClick" Not Working For Autohide/Floating Panels
« on: January 04, 2022, 04:33:33 PM »
Is it just me or are panels not accessible via the onDoubleClick command?
If not (as I suspect), can they please be supported on this command too? Thanks.
