I figured out a little bit of the status bar. I want to put the currently selected Directory/Filename on the Left permanently and let the status message occupy. So, how to set justification and field size… there does not appear to be a way to do that explicitly other than addPermanentWidget which means it’s going to be right justified and will not get overwritten by any message text.
But. I want it on the left, and it to always be there. To be honest, the message text displayed otherwise is pretty useless. It’s displayed so fast anyway. If you want to see whats actually going on there you’ll probably want the log window open.
So my thought is to shorten all the current messages to what they are doing and then tack it over to the right with InfoStatus. That way the right side would be:
Ready: < > Activity [Loading Cover Art] 27( ) 42( ) 0( ) 0 ( ) Listenting on Port 8000
Then on the left the message area will always be
/Volume/Drive/Directory/Sub/Track.mp3 Activity [ ] 27( ) 42( ) 0( ) 0 ( ) Listening on Port 8000
Then all the dynamic space could display the file/path information without interruption.
As for having it in
metadatabox - … where is it keeping the ~variables besides ~length from showing there?
I can select Length in the Top Tags, but not
~filename, ~dirname or any others.
I added a ~filesize and I can’t get that to display in
The only ~variable that works in that list is Length.
