Hello there!
Over a long time here's my new foobar2000 theme. :#1:

With this theme i mainly introduce my WSH playlist!

Layout: Biography, Lyrics, WSH cover art, WSH playlist, WSH meta info and filter panels + three reserved panel slots for you to customize (see installation.txt how to enable).

Fullscreen preview extremehunter1972.deviantart.c…


If you have installed foobar2000 standard version, then copy configuration and user-components folders to:

---> on Windows 7/8: DRIVE: Users-Your Name-AppData-Roaming-foobar2000
---> on Windows XP: DRIVE: Documents and Settings-Your Name-Application Data-foobar2000

and themes folder to foobar2000 installation folder.

if you installed portable version then copy all to foobar2000 installation folder.

On first/clean install → interface module window comes up → select Column UI.

---> How to install video…

---> How to add new panel:…
Example shows how to add new wsh panel mod and then shows how to add Br3tts coverflow script.…

---> How to add new filter:…

---> to change panels button names right click on button and select Splitter Settings... then select Script

---> If you want to use web links or open images/image folders in cover art panel or change/hide window frame, then you need to disable WSH panel safe mode (Preferences/Tools/WSH Panel Mod)

----> PS. Lots of stuff can be enable/disable on right click menus.

---> CaTRoX (30.03.2014)
-> Panel_List.js
-> fix: Skip rated less than... not working, when using tag rating.
-> add: Some requested group variables: artistColorPlaying, albumColorPlaying, infoColorPlaying, dateColorPlaying, lineColorPlaying.
-> add: Grouping presets: by path, by date, by user defined.
-> fix: Group info: 24bit file codec. (v2)

---> CaTRoX (01.04.2014) :new:
-> Panel_List.js
-> fix: Send selection to another playlist was messed up.

I love this skin,
but when I remove "Group Header"so I can't find how to enable "Artist" column so I can see only track no, title and duration.
anyone who can help me with this please?

Nice work, thanks.

Really good skin, has everything you need. Only thing missing is ability to minimize the left side to maximize the playlist.

EDIT: Actually it has that nevermind, perfect.
By the way how do you remove the top windows bar? Above the menu bar. In your pic it's merged.
seriosbrad Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2016
Do you know how to make the Artist and Album panel stack filters follow playback and remember playback position upon restarting foobar?
herbster Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2016
Any way to change Genre to Folder structure, in the Library view? I never use genre but really rely on folder view, thanks for a great theme!

Did you ever get a reply or figure it out? I'm in the same boat.
AlinElRene Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2016
It seems the new one use CPU resource more. I still have the old version and still work as intended. For those who fail to load/search the lyric, update your Lyric Show Panel to at least version 3 (foo_uie_lyrics3).
Well, I love to change the font color by modifying the script for myself. Instead of orange, I use purple that fits my desktop.

great skin, loved the looks very much. but is it possible to make following changes:
- delete biography and lyrics panels
- change library (LIB) panel to show my media library sorted by folder structure?
odeodex Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2015
I dunno what to do because, after I reinstall foobar and the skin, it won't online search the  lyrics anymore :(
can you help me sir?

ps. all component up to date
karmacode Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2015
Mine looks like this when I try to open it :(

I'm using the latest version of foobar with Windows 10. 
i0n0ff Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2015
Reinstall , read the instructions provided in the archive
bryster126 Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2015
make sure to update Foo_UIE_Lyrics (Lyrics show panel) in the components tab in the menu (hit the get updates button). The last version stopped working for me.
Jyrrisan Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2015
How do I enable the option that allows me to toggle the circles around the media controls in the top right and hide the border?
Antmax Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2015
Thanks really appreciate the work you put into this. Have been using default UI for ages and it's looking positively prehistoric these days.  
is there a way so you dont have to double-click on an artist or album to view songs
Shmu-Hadron Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2015
Try Preferences - Display - Columns UI - Filter tab - "Auto-send selection to playlist".
Shmu-Hadron Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2015
Thanks for the awesome theme, it's the reason I started using foobar2000 :)

I'd like to know if there is a possibility to remove thin white bar at the top that appeared after upgrading my pc to Windows 10?
i0n0ff Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2015
win10x64: all is fine

Right Click on the top panel with "File, Edit, View" and other buttons -> "frame style" -> "no border"
Shmu-Hadron Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2015
Awesome, thanks!

how to change color where the bitrate and other info?
i0n0ff Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2015
use Ctrl+F before asking first
ClockworkBastard Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2015
Hmm, cool!

As for me, I lack most of all Playlists selection tab
Hame no idea how to add it by myself
GeneralLoser Featured By Owner Edited Jun 7, 2015
Would there be a way to not display the kbps number what so ever?

Also, would it be possible to edit what this bit displays? Preferably to just the artist and song title. This may be a general foobar question, but I don't exactly know what I'm doing so any help would be appreciated.
i0n0ff Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2015
(about your second question) Look here: "foobar2000\themes\CaTRoX\Scripts\Panel_Top.js"
The line you need begin with:
"    var fields = "

You'll be able to customize it all you want by yourself
(about your first one) go to "foobar2000\themes\CaTRoX\Scripts\Panel_List.js".

Change this:

var info = $(genre + codec + discNumber + "[ | %replaygain_album_gain%]", metadb) + (radio ? "" : " | " + iCount + (iCount == 1 ? " Track" : " Tracks") + " | Time: " + calculateGroupLength(firstItem[groupNr], lastItem[groupNr]));

to this:

var info = $(genre + discNumber + "[ | %replaygain_album_gain%]", metadb) + (radio ? "" : " | " + iCount + (iCount == 1 ? " Track" : " Tracks") + " | Time: " + calculateGroupLength(firstItem[groupNr], lastItem[groupNr]));

Thanks a ton, solved both of my problems without a hitch.
i0n0ff Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2015
You are welcome
Under Library-->artist panel

when I double click an artist it automatically plays. how do i stop that?

i double click the first artist and it automatically plays. the next few artists i single click and it doesnt do anything.
i0n0ff Featured By Owner May 22, 2015
If I've understood you correctly, Every time you double-click an artist - auto-play starts . Or only the first artist you double-click starts to play, and auto-play function disappears (only opens a default playlist)?
xXxdankmemes420xXx Featured By Owner May 22, 2015
Every time you double-click an artist - auto-play starts 

The feature that I do want is when I double click an artist it applies the filter so I can see only the songs that belong to that artist. Is there anyway to assign the double click filter function to single click? I dont mind double clicking to play a song but when Im looking through music I dont want to necessarily have it autoplay.
i0n0ff Featured By Owner May 24, 2015
If you right-click on artist in the library - yow would see this - (the arrow points to your chosen action)
to change it go here
xXxdankmemes420xXx Featured By Owner May 28, 2015
Thanks I really appreciate the time you put into this.
i0n0ff Featured By Owner May 29, 2015
No problem
xXxdankmemes420xXx Featured By Owner May 17, 2015
how do you search for music without the old interface appearing? is there a skin for the search function (ctrl + f)?
FLeX3DaMuZ Featured By Owner May 14, 2015
biography panel not working anymore? is there a way to fetch artist images from again?
zemoclew Featured By Owner May 7, 2015
Great theme, thanks. but i have problem. how can i make the font on playlist larger?
i0n0ff Featured By Owner May 9, 2015
Open this file: "...\themes\CaTRoX\Scripts\Panel_List.js"
Edit After this line: "//---> Fonts"

There are about 15 strings or something... You'd find what you need there (personally, i decreased every font size by 1).

also you can try to change it here:
Preferences - display- column ui - colors & fonts - Fonts
I love this theme. Thanks!
b3l13v3r Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2015
Real nice... thank you!
furie1024 Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2015
Does anybody knows how to add %artist% for avery song in playlist only in grouping by path?
i0n0ff Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2015
I didn't understand that
odeodex Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2015
How to add rating on a song? I've been tick the "show rating" options but I cant click it and can't give a rating.
So, can you give me a solution?

btw, this theme very cool, simple, clean, and many features, I like it so much!!! thanks dude
i0n0ff Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2015
One of the way to do it is -Double click on the stars in the playlist.
Also you can add your own hotkeys to do it (whether you use rating in tags or not)
TheCrabby Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2015
Hi! I have just installed the theme, but I have a little question. When opening foobar a window pops out telling me to install missing fonts. I guess these are the ones int the "Fonts" folder but i can't figure out how to install them. Can anyone help me with this? I searched on web but couldn't find anything.
i0n0ff Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2015
Double click on the fonts file -> At the top-left corner of the window you'll see two buttons: "print" and "install". The second is the one you need
foophile Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2015

I'm trying to modify your cover panel to display artist image retreived from biography_view panel. It already does it with files played from library, but not with radio streams. Do you think you can help me ? I spent almost 2 hours on it...
tastynuggets Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2015
Hey great skin, I have a quick question though. Is it possible to change the colors of the panels, like the playlists and filters and such? I'd prefer it if my skin was a tad brighter.

i0n0ff Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2015
Try to look here: 1)Preferences - display- column ui - colors & fonts
2)and here: \themes\CaTRoX\Scripts
open scripts with notepad, colors are in rgb format

you'll be able to change every part's colors. and this shouldn't take much of your time to do this
also, just in case, in lyrics panel you can right-click it -choose "preferences".and so on
TikiThorsen Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2015
The fact that I can NOT sort this by Artist>Album is a deal-breaker for, pity.
i0n0ff Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2015
you Can

be specific where you "can NOT sort this by..."?
in playlist? you mean by default or to sort with one click?
either is done easily.and either was answered not once
maybe you're talknig bout your library.don't know
