View Full Version : Removing icons from the ML list
15th May 2006, 11:55
How about an option to turn the icons off? I need all the space I can get in my Media Library, and those icons take up an extra 20 pixels or so...
thread split from here (http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?postid=1818640#post1818640) since it wasn't really relevant - DrO
bit of a thread hi-jack but have a look at this (http://nunzioweb.com/daz/files/ML_Icon_Control_v0_1.exe) which seems to work well with the plugin in this thread and also the native ones in the ml

I hope this isn't stealing the plugins thunder ;)
ML icon control (http://www.nunzioweb.com/daz/files/ML_Icon_Control_v0_1.exe)
btw Antaeras, this thread really had nothing to do with the ML icons. This was for a plugin for the media library pre-ML icons
oh dang....i guess it didnt steal any thunder.
hehe, only just got ahead of you there billy ;)
i think a thread split is required here me thinks...

Dammit Daz, another secret plugin hidden in the forums, thanks :)
not that hidden since i'd only just made it last night.
in general i will be looking to see if i can do something like i've done with the gen_tray plugin so it's possible to customise the images used (essentially doing what ml_icons should have done i believe but with some extra control over which ones are/aren't set but that's for when i get a bit more freetime :) )

hey, cool news!
could we work then on something to customize them via skins? this would be very cool!
i'm still thinking of how best to do that since i could base it off the skin name to auto-switch to a different pack but then there's no definitive way of knowing what the skin name is going to be. it's something i'd like to do since it would be useful though it also comes down to how well (or not) the skin extraction whitelist lets things through (i know bmp is fine but i can't remember if ico such as for gen_tray would even work)

oh really :)
well thanks for making it Daz!
that's alright, luckily it was a simple thing to do (only a few lines of basic code) and when i get around to it i'll have my ml looking more like i'd prefer it (just with the arrows) but that's a little way away i think due to other projects

(i know bmp is fine but i can't remember if ico such as for gen_tray would even work)
cause of this i havn't asked you for gen_tray anymore :)
but bmps should be no problem. get the skinname is available via the sendMessage calls, if i remember correctly.
then the skinpath is either %wadir%/%skinname% or %temp%/...
and here is the problem, i guess!
the skinpath thing is easy to work with - jtfe is doing it all the time with different classic skins for the winshade mode it adds to gen frame windows so that's not a problem. i'll have to check things later but i know that since bmp files can be extracted, at least auto-selection with this feature would be possible since winamp builds it's imagelist from bmps so the same would be done with this plugin :)
