Placebo by slowboyfast Placebo by slowboyfast
Best served with Placebo Pure Morning & Cold Market:)
Tested on 1.1.14a - 1.3 b5, should be compatible with any version that can use WSH 1.5.6!

:bulletred: If you are having problems with messed up playlist, check your library tree settings. They should look like this.

(22-4-2013)***MINOR BUGFIX*** PBO buttons are aligned properly. Fixed controls in "Pure (Segoe Semibold)"

(10-4-2013)***UPDATE*** New PBO script, volume and control icons.

(31-1-2013)***MINOR BUGFIX*** Text clipping bug resolved.

(6-12-2012)***MINOR BUGFIX*** Volume bars are aligned properly now.

(27-11-2012)***MINOR BUGFIX*** "Playing" and "selected" items are now properly skinned.

(24-11-2012)***MINOR BUGFIX*** Fixed coding in headers.

(23-11-2012)***UPDATE*** Reworked nearly everything! Bottom does not look like MNLT2 anymore, blends better with Placebo VS. New buttons (taken from my other skin - The Spy), smaller toolbar, library moved to the right. Each style has 2 font variations (Segoe Semibold, Calibri). Enjoy!

(30-10-2012)***UPDATE*** Added new color scheme to match Placebo Cold Market, improved Pure Morning scheme, added gradients and stuff. Buttons are now part of PSS script, this means you don't need to load fixes, should work out of the box.
++2 styles included:
-Pure (dark toolbar / blue seekbar)
-Cold (light toolbar / dark grey seekbar)

(16-10-2012)***IMPORTANT*** Added pictures to explain how to edit tabs!

Hi slowboyfast,

I love the skin but have two questions:

1. Is there any way to adjust the size of the library tree panel? It takes up the leftmost 40% of the screen right now and I'd like for it to only take up about 20-25%, leaving the remainder for the songs. 

2. I have the windows taskbar set to hide itself automatically and when I have foobar maximized with this skin, the taskbar won't pull itself up when hovered over and I have to use alt+tab to get out. Is there any way around this? 

Thanks in advance! :D Great skin!

Hey bro, 

1. Go to prefs -> columns ui -> layout and find this highlighted panel stack splitter. Click on it and press configure. In the new window you'll see 2 panels, Libtree and Elplaylist. Select first (X) and change its size from 35 to whatever you like. Same goes for second (y), select it and change it from 65 to whatever you desire :) Just remember that X+Y=100 (coz it's set to percentage).

2. Strange, auto hiding works fine for me. Maybe you were tinkering with foobar preferences? Coz I have no idea why is this happening :)
Could you explain the first point bettere? I can't change the library tree panel size

Sorry for the late response, I'm out of town right now :)

Well, point 1 is already detailed but I'll try to make it clearer.
Open up Preferences -> Display -> Columns UI -> Layout. Look for this exact PSS and click configure.
It will open totally new window with Libtree and ELPlaylist on the right and size/padding section on the right.
You need to change size fields. It's a percentage value, so if Libtree is 35, ELPlaylist should be 65. If you change it to 20, then ELPlaylist should be 80. Just like I said above. Treat Libtree like X and ELP like Y. X+Y=100.
Thanks, i menaged to change the size :) I had to change width and height to 100 too
If I may ask, what windows theme are you using in that picture? I'm actually using your nice Veronica skin, and I'd like a scrollbar meshes with it, or at least isn't disgustingly ugly like the default Windows one.

Suffers from the same problem that many players have.  There's no now playing tab so if you decide to browse your library, the player will automatically switch to whatever you're browsing at that moment.

Also, for whatever reason, when I drag a folder from the folder view into the playlist panel, the files are out of order.  I name my tracks so that everything is preceded by 01, 02, 03... so I'm not really sure why this happens.

Auto switching lists:
:bulletred: When you're browsing your library, libtree component generates new autoplaylist. To prevent foo from erasing your current list, rename it to Now Playing and send your items there. Sorry, I know no other method. It's the choice of components.

Out of order files:
:bulletred: It's a problem that came from MNLT2 (this theme is a mod). I'll fix it in the next update and rewrite everything from scratch.
