[rel]avetunes2 Widget & Bzskins

107 posts in this topic

Update, annoying bugs fixed

What is fixed?

  • "iTunes not loaded" message didn't always appear when iTunes was unloaded (thanks Stevie)
  • Albumart didn't disappear when iTunes was unloaded (thanks Stevie again)
  • iTunes will now come to front when you toggle it's visibility.
  • Default panels showing up in skins when they shouldn't be shown.
  • Some more annoyances and the z-order of some things.

Added for skinning

When a hotspot had an animation, all information, panels, progressbar, sound indicator would be hidden, which gave a very annoying "flash". This was the case, because it was impossible for the widget to know, which sections had to be hidden to not interfere with the animation. I delegated that to the skin maker now ;).

Also, albumart can fade in on skinchange-animation and sounds can be played.

[SkinChangeHotSpot-1]
for the next options to be used, this skinchange must do an animation.;

; set this to one if you want some panes/progressbars/etc to remain visibile
; during an animation
NoHideDuringAnimation=1

; for each section that should stay visible, set the value to 1
AlbumArtShowDuringAnimation=0
SoundShowDuringAnimation=1
ProgressShowDuringAnimation=1
RatingShowDuringAnimation=0
CounterShowDuringAnimation=1
InfoShowDuringAnimation=1
DisplayShowDuringAnimation=1

; number of extra info panes
ShowExtraPanesDuringAnimationCount=0
; for each extra info pane, set the value 1 to
; if it should stay visible during the animation.
ShowExtraPanesDuringAnimation1=0
ShowExtraPanesDuringAnimation2=0

; if you want albumart to fade in after the animation has been completed
; set this to 1 and set the number of frames for the fade in (defaults to 10).
fadeAlbumArtIn=1
numberOfFadeFrames=40

; this will only be used iff UseCurrentSkinSizeForAnimation=0
; it defines the new bg width/height of the new skin so the
; panes that are still visible can be scaled accordingly
; during the animation.
****gWidth=333
****gHeight=180

; if you want to play a wave sound during animation
; note that sounds are by default disabled
; and have to be enabled on the skin-tab in
; the properties dialogue.
SoundForAnimation=drawer/popup.wav
; idem, but then for a mouseout when type=hover
SoundForAnimationMouseOut

Hi everybody !

This is my frist post on this board, and i already have a question !!

(by the way i'm french, so excuse me for my poor english... :D )

I have a little problem with the [soundPane] tag.

I want to make a vertical soundvolume settings but i can't set the position of the min and max volume. Apparently the max is allays on the right or bottom and the min is always on the left or top.

I have test the direction line wthi "2" and "3" and it's the same all the time... :blink:

Did I've made a mistake ??

Thx in advance !

There is only one thing which should be modified in AveTune. It's quite a time I wanted to speak about this in this forum.

When a skin has different states (like Bernice or Expender Light for example) and you don't choose the default one, AveTune doesn't appear on the Desktop after restarting Avedesk.

I have to go in the AveTune preferences and select the skin again (no skin is selected after restarting AveDesk).

I have configured Avetune to not appear when iTunes isn't running but even if I try to restart iTunes, nothing change.

Excuse my horrible english.

I have discovered Avedesk recently and... I love it!

My only deception was that Winamp was not supported so this "hack" is really great!.

And, personnally, it works perfectly (except the blank popup at startup, but does not matter)

See the attachment for screenshot of it working perfectly on my desktop.

Thanks a lot and congrat! for the app.

I've downloaded a few new skins for AveTunes, but for the life of me, cannot get them to show up as selectable. Where do I put them?

Thanks!
