i think we can inform the creator about this small problem.. it might require just a quick native fix for him and it's more cleaner solution. After all, he fixed this whole embeding thing for us I will ask him about it and see what he says... He is very open and really nice about any suggestion.
Yeh, if he could make it where Skinbedder isn't required this would definitely make it better. All that is required is to get rid of the black bars and it will look seemless. I dont exactly know how to describe the situation to him, so if someone has a better vocabulary for the situation, they should let him know. Also if he could add a "lite version" that just displayed the Album Art and didnt have all the media playing abilities would be nice as well. One that would always require sending the path to an outside player, but I'm probably asking too much there.
I'm working on the script, but lets be honest I'm not a programmer, but I do have the old script updated to work with RR. Right now Im finishing my skin for the pop-up of the album tracks, and working the kinks out there. It's taking me longer than usual because I'm also studying for my tests this next week at GT.
i have some scripts that i made for 1.52, to send the folder path to RR, the rest can be done using simple RR commands, i even did a script to create the backgrond.jpg from RR's background, to simulate a transparency heres a screencap so you guys can see. but i get the black bar if CJ is embedded.
NOTE: i will update the main thread as soon as i get a chance, or if any one wants to take from here let me know and i'll send what i have.
Will be posting pics and a .zip file of everything I have accomplished tonight.
Ok here are screen-shots of CoverJuke Embedded with the help of SkinBedder.
As you can see, the black bar at the top is gone, also if you have embedded Coverjuke before, it would "jump" in and out of the defined application area, using SkinBedder resolves that issue as well.
This a picture of the Pop-up skin I made (Elite Lite skin) that will load when an album is clicked. The list is iList at the moment, it can be changed to whatever you like.
Download the attachment and Read the README for instructions.
CJ updated with CJSend.exe
-- now able to send keys to CJ after being embedding using SKINbedder
great work ws6vert. That looks sweet..
Files attached (Post 36).
Give it a look, someone try it, and let me know how it goes.
I changed the old Covers.au3 to just make a variable for the file path, and as before, depending on whats in the skin.ini it will perform a "SLCTALBUM" or "SEEALBUM."
I also changed the actions of SLCTALBUM to this:
This gets the focus of a hidden directory list on the coverjuke skin, sets the appropriate path, selects the first track, loads the playlist, the quickly exits the the AUDIO skin.
I did this to make RR update all the labels and stuff. If you know a better way, then let me know.
This reminds me, I left this out of the README
******* You must have a directory list defined somewhere off the coverjuke skin for "SLCTALBUM" to work********* (Follow my skin files for an example)
very complicated for me...
If anything needs more explaining, I can certainly help, just PM me or reply here. It takes a lil bit to set up, but looks good in the end. Works great too.
A note about the Ilists: I couldnt get them to work on my computer when making my skin, but I think this is because my computer is trying to commit suicide. If they still do not work, it might be a RR issue. I'm looking to check with other skins at the moment.
