Problems with InfoPop Skinning

Post by B'jamin-da-Bass » Sun Dec 08, 2013 8:37 pm

Hey Everyone,

I've been having a great time (& mostly success) modifying the excellent Eclipse skin to suit my needs. I've got most of my new InfoPop working (much bigger AlbumArt & more track info) except:

1) Track #, Disc #
No matter what I try, I can't get the track or disc number to display :( I've tried Track, Track_Num, Track_Number, TrackNum, TrackNumber, Disc, (and SongLength, TrackLength, IDAlbum, TotalSamples just to discover a pattern). Spaces, # and % aren't allowed in the Name field in the ThemeEditor (v7.00). Weirdly, I can get Year, Date & BitRate to display without any problems.

2) Right Align
I would love to right-align some fields, but this does not seem possible? (I've tried all the obvious drop-down choices in the ThemeEditor.)

3) Additional Text
Is there any way to display additional text? For example, I would love to display the length of the track as: "(4:37)" rather than the current: "4:37" (added parentheses around the Length). It doesn't seem like that's possible?

Thanks in advance to anyone who sees this and can help,

- B'jamin da Bass

you have to set "Text align" to "taRight"

I don't believe , just in player skins/ini via TextMask and the =<Summary> option

I hope we can see some screenshots from your work :wink:

First of, thank you for the reply, DreadM!

1) Is there any way to contact the developer(s) to get a definite answer? Otherwise we're all just fumbling in the dark here...

2) Looks like there's a bug with the Rating field, then. I tried taRight and it works fine with fields such as Title, but not Rating (as you can see in my screenshot, hopefully).

3) Again, it sure would be nice if I could find some place to get a definite answer. I'm guessing MediaMonkey is not open source so I can't just go and fix it myself?

Lastly, I've included a screenshot of my InfoPop (hopefully it works). It's not a huge change from the excellent Eclipse skin, but I like it :)

Rating is no really text field,
and it starts always from the left side,
you can change the size from this field and the position .

nice screenshot. :)
