    pretty playlists please???

    Let me start by saying I am a huge fan of riderunner and have been using it for about the last year. However, I have always wished we had more attractive lists like in centrafuse and openmobile.

    What I am referring to are the playlists or browsing lists that show the album are to the left with the title and artist information stacked to the right. These lists also usually utilize alternating colors or dividers to better distinguish one track from the other.

    an example:


    I noticed that a skin created a while back called sonique elite i believe had a list like this in it but that skin file is no longer available. I am guessing this can be done with flash but I have zero skills with flash, so basically what I am asking is if there is a way that someone could make this type of list so users could easily put it into there skins just as we do with ilists now.

    sorry if this is not possible or has already been addressed.

    I am the creator of that skin, and yes, the line splits were done via flash utilizing direct track tag data and not RR's playlist.

    Adding this ability in RR would be difficult being that RR is written in VB6 and there's not support for it

    Well, from a RRMedia stand point, all RR would need is an additional iList style that would allow multiple data/text pieces to be contained all in one line.

    Lots of possibilities if there was a iList style that allowed for such a list layout

    Showing the image and the text beside it is already possible. Showing different lines and text in different positions is something we'd have to add. Showing the dividers is also possible already. Showing the song count of each playlist is something that probably would require a pre-saved list of playlists or a plugin to put the information together. If this was made into a specific feature (i.e. a playlist screen) then it could be more customized but it's an awful amount of work for 1 specific feature. If you want to pre-save your playlist information I could suggest just building a playlist browser screen with buttons and labels and just adding in the information by hand or using some sort of plugin/script to do that for you. It's definitely something we can think of automating at some point, but right now time is a bit tight.

    Well, I did say "Well, from a RRMedia stand point" not to quote my self anyway..LOL

    RRMedia could fairly easily have an option to spit out a file that could accommodate this kind of iList style.
