Build 154 has your play button in it.  I believe this is what you were thinking of.
Thanks, perfect!!  :-*

Found 2 more small bugs:
- when you use the mouse on the seek bar, the displayed time flickers - looks like it tries to update itself too often.
- when you use the mouse on the seek bar to move to the beginning of the file and push the mouse too far (with the left mouse button still pressed down), you will accidentally change the volume (when you happen to move over that part of the UI, which is easy to do because it's so close).

It would help if you could add the installer link to your signature, might lead others to try Trout and it would mean way less clicking for all of us who want the newest version! 8)

better to include a link to the trout thread.

Only if he adds the installer link to every post where he announces a new version. 8)

I don't experience much flicker at all in the seekbar text.  Now, if I add the $time_e/$time_r to the titlebar text, I see flicker (but I warned about this).  I'm not sure I can do too much about this.

- when you use the mouse on the seek bar to move to the beginning of the file and push the mouse too far (with the left mouse button still pressed down), you will accidentally change the volume (when you happen to move over that part of the UI, which is easy to do because it's so close).
This is a by-product of what I have to do to even get those bars working like they do in Trout.  I'll try to do something about this but there are no promises on this one.

I added some bits to my sig.  Hopefully, they'll save you some clicks.

Oh, that's related? Didn't think of that... ok, will have to live with it then.  :)

Thanks for the new signature!

I discovered a funny bug: every time Trout is restarted (I use window mode btw, not fullscreen) it increases its UI width a little bit. :D

I actaully had the same problem with an ahk app that I wrote, i needed to -8 pixels from the saved width, something todo with margins vs the actual width of the window...

Sleep time for me; thanks for all the feedback tonight.

v1.0.2 build 172
    + Added a play button to the "Play track/beep between tracks" option so you can preview the
      chosen sound file.  [Thanks, brotherS]
    + Added a checkbox on the Options form to enable/disable the "Play track/beep between tracks"
      function.  [Thanks, brotherS]
    + Added another hidden config.ini setting under Settings: Update_Method=zip
      Setting this will allow the DcUpdater app to work with Trout's portable zip file as opposed
      to the installer.

a just in case post:-
do you know you can use dcupdater and then update via menu/about ?
if not, search the thread: the setup details are in there somewhere ;)

After reading the post above yours (and maybe even before) I assumed so much...

if not, search the thread: the setup details are in there somewhere ;)
...that's what I feared, so I didn't yet try to hunt them down.  :D

try this one (it's easier when you've seen the post before so thought I'd save you the search!)

In the next build, I'll go ahead and include the dcuhelper.exe with the install packages.

Aah, cool, the perfect excuse to not look into the dcupdater thread! :D

Thanks tomos, I might still take a look if the next build fails to install the dcuhelper.exe correctly.  ;)

Hmm, strange... using build 155 here and the play beep/track option just didn't kick in although a file had been selected in the options and it's enabled in the menu.

Edit: Updated to 174, still the same problem.

Edit: I had to disable the option in the menu and to then enable it again to make it work.

Seems to work here.  Can anybody else confirm?

Edit:  Actually...hang on.  I think I know why you're seeing this happen.

Try build 176.

v1.0.2 build 176
    * Random mode now does a basic check so that the same song isn't played twice in a row.
    * Changed "Play track/beep between tracks" to "Audible notification on new track".
    ! "Audible notification on new track" wasn't working properly on Trout startup.  [Thanks,
       brotherS]

Please try build 177 and see if the bar improvements I just made solve this issue.  Thanks.

Works correctly now!

Did you look into this? Bug is still in the latest version.

Every AHK I've written, including Trout, that saves position subtracts these eight pixels as well as 46 vertically.

Code: [Select]
posw := posw - 8
posh := posh - 46

 :D

Hehe, then why is Trout getting bigger and bigger? (In both dimensions btw, I only noticed just the width expanding before.)

That's reassuring, I thought I was going mad when I had to use 8 and 46 for my app...  :D

v1.0.2 build 178
    + Added two checkboxes to the Options, Toaster tab:
      1) Enable toaster popup.
      2) Do not show toaster popup while main window is active.
    * Improved the seek and volume bars:
      1) A single mousedown session cannot affect both controls.  [Thanks, brotherS & SoggyDog]
      2) Letting go of the left mouse button outside of the seekbars will now work.  This should
         allow for dragging the seekbar all the way back to the start of the song or all the way
         to the end of a song.  [Thanks, SoggyDog]
    * Clicking on the toaster popup will keep it open as long as it's the active window.

A suggestion that I meant to make before (and forgot twice)*: please consider changing the order of the item in the hotkey menu to what's being used most often: "previous" should come before "next", "down" before "up", "left" before "right", etc.

*I remembered this when I saw a Google ad for http://www.projekt202.com/  8)
