Requirements[edit]

Graphical Browser reference[edit]

Last version of this component is rev015. Further development for the component has ceased since, but as of foobar2000 1.1. it is still fully working. This reference is based on the Readme translated by thuan (rev014).

Description[edit]

Album cover browser for the active playlist.

Remarks[edit]

Caution: Settings are per panel so if you delete a panel, the settings for that panel also disappear.

Sort[edit]

Blank Whatever works. Sorted by grouped strings.

If you want to arrange in the same order as the playlist: $num(%gb_playlist_number%,10)

Popup[edit]

Transparent mode: You can apply different level of transparence to every pixel. (e.g.: transparent background with full opacity image and text.) GDI can't be used, please use GDI+ only. Even with GDI+, text rendering without using $gp_set_text_rendering_hint(aa) doesn't look good enough. Per track

Draw order: Popup ? Per track(0) ? Per track(1) ? ...

Rendering settings (e.g.: pen, brush, font, ...) can't be set again midway.

Image cache methods[edit]

Old rev011 and older way. Cache images of all items. Image cache is purged when switching playlist. Default Cache images to the set size. Image cache is not purged when switching playlist. If the image cache reach the limit, it will be purged.

About functions[edit]

Functions are divided into GDI and GDI+. They are different in pens, brushes and points. For GDI, to set color with "r-g-b", use a base 10 number for each color component; otherwise use base 16 number with "rrggbb". For GDI+, to set color with "a-r-g-b", se a base 10 number for each color component and alpha channel; otherwise use base 16 number with "aarrggbb". If you want to draw some thing with transparency or effects like anti-aliasing, use GDI+. Some fonts (probably OpenType fonts with PostScript outline) can't be used in GDI+ mode. Full-width hyphen can't be displayed right in GDI+ mode.
