thanx to those (about)900 ppl for downloading jetBar. this encourages me very much as this is my first skin.

and hang on every one... a new version is coming up very soon with "Full featured AlbumArt Display" (YES! it WILL change as song changes...won't just stay unchanged while the song changes like in the other skins.)

and lyric viewer will have autoscrolling speed adjuster and auto detect speed

and there have been tons of internal code changes to work make the skin better.

it've already done these, but have to sort some codes before i can update this skin here.

this new version (2nd NoV) in mainly an intermediate version. All albumart features are implemented with albumart in lyric viewer which looks superb.

One thing.
if you've used jetBar before, it's best to after running this version (and any other next updates) press the button next to '?' button to reset the player. then reload jetBar. Thank you.

"how do I get the lyrics to show up?"

if you have lyric embeded in your music files, it'll automatically appear if you haven't disabled it.
even if you have disabled it, the "i" button right left to the blue main panel will glow in green...
click it.

a new version will be available very shortly with some superb lyric viewer modifications.
like, font chooser, size, blod, italic etc and ever color! (with background color too...)
and i think i'll b able to add video modifications too (color chooser etc.....)

probably it'll be available after 4/5 days.

i beg everyone's pardon...
due to some unavoidable circumstances, i couldn't update this skin as i said i would (in 4/5 days; actually it's been 1.5 months)

it's now updated (i've submitted it in WinCustomize, it'll be avalable in 3 days) with some new cool features...
many things are changed. You SHOULD read the "History" post first.

jetBar Version History:

1.7 (whew! tons of new Codes)
+ ScreenSaverMode! Time and Alpha will be configurable in later versions.
? The "onmouseout" handler works some different way than "onmouseOver" thus you'll have to move your
mouse out of the "MainViewRegion" to activate ScreenSaverTimer.
MainViewRegion: Uncheck "Show window contents while moving windows" option of Windows
(for XP: DisplayProperties>Appearance>Effects)
Now LeftClick(&Hold) your mouse over jetBar's MainView. You'll see the RegionBoundary.
+ AutoScroll Speed is determined according to song's Genre
+ AutoScroll pauses if Media is paused
+ Full Featured Font/Background Color Control!
+ LyricWindow Makeup (font, size, style, smoothing etc
[Sorry,No list of current Fonts on your PC as MediaPlayer doesn't supports it]
+ Control Buttons/Sliders in LyricViewer/Playlist
+ Reset Button is now merged with Exit button. Hold Shift while clicking the Exit button to Reset
- Previous reset button is removed. (it'll be used for MiniMe!)
* AlbumArt Got Trimed Sometimes (in case of smaller images) [Weird!!! xplained in comments]
* Added a timer to load trackinfo after 35sec if nothing is being played after player start.
If so, then the player doesn't read tags till 30sec is passed.
? Even now, sometimes the timer doesn't works!!!
* A lot of code rewrite and change to fix many glitches (due to wmp's weird "CETE" problem)
! Playlists "Gradient Color" doesn't works if "Playlist File Error" occures or if Nested Playlist is loaded.
It's not my fault. It's how they programed it!!! (see the playlist of FullMode =P )
! For some rare particlular files, albumart fails to load. You have to close lyricwindow and then reopen it to bring up the album art. Weird!

+ AlbumArt! in vis, in video and in lyric!
+ Enable/Disable Albumart in video/lyric
+ Playlist/LyricViewer Size Save/Restore (including Maximize) + Some workarounds to avoid "CETE"
+ Now LyricViewer won't close after song change if new song has lyric too. + A reloadlyric to avoid "CETE"
(Lyric is searched before player loades the new file resulting empty lyric [often when you switch tracks rapidly])
+ A lot of change in "SkinState" restore (savepreference)
+ A player reset button (next to '?')

1.5 (First Public Release)
+ Playlist/LyricViewer Title
+ Lyric Viewer w/autoscroll
+ A lot of change in "SkinState" restore (savepreference)

1.4 (Never Publicly Released)
+ Playlist Coloring
! Playlist Coloring and size doesn't works properly if you have WMP9.
+ Lyric Viewer
+ Animated Buttons
* A lot of minor bugs/glitches fixed (due to my own coding mistake)

1.3 (Never Publicly Released)
+ video support
+ auto track info
+ "automenu" (AL)
+ Playlist

1.2 (Never Publicly Released)
+ vis support
+ track info
+ vol slider
+ slider colorings

1.1 (Never Publicly Released)
+ subview animations

1.0 (Never Publicly Released)

+ initial jetBar using Stardock's SkinStudio 4.5

+ New Feature/Added
- Removed
* Fixed(Bugs/Gliches etc...)
? Solution Unknown
! Known Bugs/Gliches etc...)
CETE A weird problem. Sometimes when a lot of codes are executed, they execute "too" much asyncly (Code is Executed Too Early)

??? Put buttons which will switch to FullMode and automatically go to Library/Burn/Sync/Radio/SkinChooser Panes.
??? A button to toggle "always on top"
??? A button to open MediaPlayer's "Options"

Comment #15 Monday, May 22, 2006 6:30 AM

Does someone uses JetBar with the WMP 11 beta ? I do not know why but most of the time with a new song the window with cover and lyrics is maximize and I have to resize it.

im very sorry to say that, jetBar doesnt properly works on WMP 11 (beta?)
the alpha blend effects seem to shatter.
the move animation seem to be jerky
song info section doesnt show-up etc etc...

microsoft did something to the alphablendTo() and moveTo() functions and every skin that uses this fails in WMP11.
for example, XBoxLive Remix, Cadumus Bubbles etc...

currently, i have no fix for this as the SDK of WMP11 wont be out until its final version comes out and i cant fix the problem until i know what f*cking thing they did...
