    Hi this is a great program, but would it be possible to have some kind of system to allow dragging and selection of more than 1 track? For example:

    1) you could have a key called "shift" which would behave as though you were selecting the first track you click on at the same time as the second (or even a selection box - but this may interfere with gestures) and so-on until you turn it off and then another button to drag the selection up or down just like in winamp (like a swap button).

    2)Maybe you could use gestures and some way to figure out coordinates on the screen so that you could just draw a line from the first track to the last track and even a button that keeps selection on.


    (sorry about the explainations and if it all sounds far fetched). This has alot of potential and I am just giving my ideas (which may not be possible to implement)

    Pics may explain better what I mean.

    Hello frangolfgt,

    Firstly, thanks for contributing to this project!

    Now, I understand everything you're trying to say even without the pics, but there are two reasons why I would not be dealing with multiple selections:

    (1) At the back end, it's very difficult to change the list-boxes (the boxes with the item names) to behave as multiple selection boxes.
    Although there are some ways to do it, more importantly I find it (2) redundant. You see, the list-boxes are in an alphabetical order, and as a fan of music, I wouldn't be basing my selection of the next song on the order of the alphabet.

    The goods news: in your last picture to the right it shows how you'd want to re-arrange the order of the list.
    If you wish, I could create two more buttons -- up and down -- to allow you to move the selected item from the queue list (on the right).
    When moved up the list, it'd be played sooner (after the tracks above it), and when moved down, it'd be played later.

    To do a hands on trial of what I described in the last paragraph, do the following:
    • Open Winamp
    • Load some songs into the playlist
    • Press 'J' on the keyboard
    • Enqueue a few songs -- select from the list and press 'Alt+Q'
    • Press the big, horizontal button that says "(Search mode)..."
    • Select a title from the new list
    • Press the 'Up' or 'Down' buttons to see how it works
    • To go back to normal press the big, horizontal button once more.


    Let me know if you want this feature...

    Hello,
    I was wondering if there was a way to make the buttons bigger for this APP. It is a little difficult for my to use the app because the buttons are too small i.e the letters and arrows. Is it possible to make it skin-able so ridiculously picky people (like myself) can change it to their liking?

    The application is great! I would probably just need the whole thing magnified a little bit to make it work for me.

    I'll check out RR's code on how they've made it skinnable with only 2 (I know --> 4) JPGs per screen.
    If it works out, then you could do whatever you want (remove buttons, move the lists around, change colors, sizes, whatever).

    I might upgrade to dynaimic skinning capabilites in a later release...

    I could make it 800x600 with a realtive ease... But then I'd have to sterch everything by 1.25 vertically... Anyway, lemme firgure out how skinning works in RR, and custom resolution will hopefully follow.

    v0.99b Released! (Advanced Skinning!)

    Bugs Fixed (since v0.98.5b):
    • Advanced Skinning Ability Added!
    • Better code handling. Removed ~200 lines
    • Discarded 50+ Variables. Allegedly less memory usage (knowledgeable testers, please verify)
    • QueueList PageDown scrolling fixed
    • Unnecessary delay timers removed -- only one 100ms delay left

    Known Issues:
    • The skin is now totally flat -- a press isn't visually represented (yet).
    • QueueList is still being handled in a "Primitive Manner." It's not too bad, but I'll make it better in an upcoming fix.
    • The plugin only supports English titles for now.

    Here's an idea of how I would want the skin to look like, (not that I want you to do it) I'll probably just use this one anyway. My skinning skills suck so dont expect to be impressed here. ANyway, Im just waitin on how to make the buttons depressions.

    Good stuff...

    About the button depressions: It'll probably be another link in the .ini file.
    About the skin: currently the program is setup so that it must have a queue list. This doesn't mean that you can't make it 1x1px and hide it underneath a button, however.
    About the Left & Right buttons: I've considered that concept in the past (around v0.70). For now, they're not gonna work.

    The _ON / _OFF skins like you guys have seen with RR are not going to work (at least not throughout v1) because the PaintPicture function that Guino is using in RR is not currently available in AutoIt.

    Yeah that's exactly what I did with the queue list. I just made it 1 x 1. I also didn't even realize that the left and right buttons didnt work I didnt bother to test it out heh heh.

    As far as the on off skins, that's no big deal I guess. It's just kind of a pain to play with the numbers and then keep running the plugin to line it up.
