[Edited the pic and the title, dont want to flood my gallery with 20 posts on one app...]
So, Doing a new Media Player in .Net 2010.
App Codename is "Project Next Player", this probably isn't the full name, but I assure you it Wont be Quartz 2 or Quartz.NET.
Ok, So creating controls at runtime has changed form vb6 to .Net. Big Time. I decided that I would like a new type of playlist, that is, not just a listbox with file names. So I decided to make a dynamically created control. That is, in the Dev environment, the control really does not exist, but when the code it ran, it creates the controls, as needed, and places it where it is supposed to go to.
Yeah, not easy any more. Took me all day Saturday to find NON Microsoft tutorials that I could understand, about 2 hours to implement it, then the rest of today (Sunday) to implement a _Click event handler.
after all, what good is it to have a media player, that lists songs by Album Art covers, if clicking on said Album Art cover doesnt play the song?
So yeah, thats what I did this weekend. LEARNING how to do something all over again.
Anyway, It Works! clicking on an album art cover will play said mp3. As you can tell, a lot of my mp3's dont have album art cover. Must rectify this for better screenshots.
So I am going to hazard this and say that Alpha 1 should be out some time... this week. Yes, that is a long time, and not very specific, But the release will be a separate entry (not this post, it's own post), plus it gives me time to debug the basic features.
Still have basic features to add in. Pause, etc... This will probably be the UI layout, unless some one wants to make one for me, and send the elements file (gimp .xcf preferred, or a butt load of .png files zipped up) and I will see about implementing that UI Layout.
Yes, Sami, .Net. Happy? I am.
.Net 2010 thanks to
. Without his help, this would not be possible.
Peace. I have worked on this all day. Minecraft tiem
