But then, when it's transparent, it's impossible to embed it into MediaMonkey (at least that's what I heared quite some times --> opacity should be 100%).

I tried this several times, in different ways, and it works fine for me. Can you give me more information, e.g. the exact steps to reproduce, the version of MM, ...?

It works with MM 2.5 skinned and non-skinned, but with MM 3.0.1.1109 only in skinned mode.

If Minilyrics runs in background I can even change between all MM versions and having started them it always gets embedded automatically except in MM 3 non-skinned mode. I actually didn't make big changes to MM except testing some skins.

However I managed to use MM in skinned mode and will use XP-Blue skin in the future and everything works fine. Thanks.

One more question: Would it be possible to prevent that the embedded window can be closed in party mode (like the Now Playling list also can't get shut down if the option "Disable repositioning of dialogs and controls" in the party mode settings is activated?)
If this is too complex, is there a simple method for me to change something in the script so that the close down button isn't visible?

I didn't test the problem in MM3 yet. I'll do this asap.

MediaMonkey doesn't provide such a feature yet (also there's no possibility to hide the window's title/caption bar). It's not possible to do this through scripting either. However, when the panel gets closed, a Close event can be (and is) handled, and then it should be possible to re-open the closed panel (probably in a blink of an eye). It's not an optimal solution (undoing instead of preventing) but it'll probably work.

1. Updated version: Due to changes in MM3 unskinned the embedder dll had to be updated. The updated version 1.4b can now be downloaded from the first post.



2. @The Crow
What you want can be done very easily:
add

Code: Select all

    MI.Enabled = False
to the end of the OnStartup subroutine
and add

Code: Select all

    Panel.Common.Visible = True
    Exit Sub
to the beginning of the Panel_OnClose subroutine.


Cheers

sorry I didn't respond before.
The update worked. it now runs in non-skinned. However, the installer didn't update the .dll automatically. I had to go into the skins folder and delete it first and then install the new version again.
Thanks for your help.

Hey i like your script. Well, i like the way Minilyrics is done (also if it misses some songs e tempos), so i like that someone made a script to embed it in MM3.
I agree that the title bar should be cut off. Did you do this already?
Sorry, i cannot read all the 13 pages of this topic :oops:

I know. This is currently a limitation of the scripting possibilities.
I have mentioned this in the scripting wishlist already, so hopefully this will be "fixed" soon.

I've tried to search but no luck:- Any news on this do you know Steegy (or anyone)?

Hello Steegy,

thanks for your nice component !
I love what you did for ML.

I got the following idea : I think that two panels
for lyrics AND album art is a bit of overkill.
I wish I could merge the two panels in one.
One panel that display the album art a little dimmed
and the lyrics over it.

What do you think ?
Could I use your component to do that ?

How did you manage to embedd ML features in
your COM server ?

Keep up the good work.

I thought that some people in this forum would be interested in this idea

edit: I just realized that you can make minilyrics transparent. If you can make minilyrics transparent, then you don't need to use the display background picture to display album art like I mention in the other thread, at least not if there was a way to display album art in the embedded panel for minilyrics.
This just gave me an idea.

Could someone make a script that embed the minylirics window in the album art pannel?
I've post a screenshot of what it could look like

:oops: Sorry Cran I didn't see your post.

I'm really glad that you're working on it. If it works it will be wicked.

It's in very early stage :
- asking Steegy how he did to use the MiniLyrics Panel
- asking the MiniLyrics to send me the SDK

I'm waiting answers to both questions.

But yeah, it would be a great improvement in MM !
