View Full Version : options for windowshade mode

It would be nice if there was a setting so if you put the main Winamp window into shade mode, all other open Winamp windows also go along.
This may be wishful thinking as I saw somewhere that the library would "never" have window shade mode. I don't understand why. Guess I'll have to search for an answer on that one.

As for the ML into windowshade, that'll probably never happen natively since it would break all existing classic skins. Thousands of skins would need to be updated.
DrO cheated a bit though, by implementing a windowshade feature using the bitmaps of the playlist editor. Check out the latest JTFE builds (http://nunzioweb.com/daz/jtfe_dev.html) (discussion (http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?threadid=217490)) and you'll be able to put all generic windows (eg. the Media Library) into windowshade mode.
(note: only works with classic skins)

my hack by using some of the playlist image to accomplish this on classic skins (modern skins due to their nature really won't allow for a 3rd party hack in that i can see as things stand). i have considered adding in some extra parts to the winamp bitmaps if a marker is detected but it's something that i'd need to properly look into maybe towards when i finalise the windowshade api in jtfe.
