    ArtView Plugin

    I have developed a very simple plugin. This plugin displays album art in a large format.



    In addition, It also lets you see any comments embedded in the file.
    Click on the album art image, and if there are comments embedded in the file, they will be displayed.




    Comments can be scrolled by clicking the up/down buttons underneath the comments.

    Click the voice button on the far right underneath the comments, and the text will be read-aloud by the CF Text-To-Speech feature.
    -Please note that Voice functionality must be enabled in CF for this to work.

    There are no setup options. The attached installer will automatically add a button (ArtView Button below).



    The only aspect you may want to change is the image that is displayed when no album art is found.
    Replace this file: {Install Directory}\ArtView\Skins\defaultArt.png with a your own file. Make sure to name it "defaultArt.png".

    I used the installer found by Wolfgang928 (NSIS), and I also used his example installer script to get started. Thanks Wolfgang928!

    Download the attached zip file and extract and run the included .exe file.

    If anyone wants the source code, let me know.


    My only request - reply to this thread and let me know what you think!

    Sorry for the delayed response. Source code attached now.


    Please note that the attached source code is for the new, 2.0 version of CF. Code is .NET 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005.

    Very cool idea! I probably won't be able to install it until after the new version of CF comes out, but I'm excited as this is just one more new function I'm going to have. Nice work!

    I'm too interested in having the source code because I'm trying to develop a plugin which put togheter several different functionalities: a kind of dashboard that presents all important info in a single screen. Album art would be one of them!

    Thanks in advance!

    If the year is found in the tags, it is displayed in parentheses next to the album name.

    I am using the "CFTools.WMGetAllAttrib" to pull the year and the album art if it is embedded in the file. Works for me. Not sure why it would not work for you....
