    Re: Pandora MusicBox 1.0.6 / 1.1.0

    Can anyone help me out with some skinning issues I am having?

    how can I specify a default image to show in place of album art if none is available?

    grooves, maybe position your default image behind the album art image? So that when the album art is missing, your default image is visible. Haven't tried it, but I think it should work.

    No, it doesn't work. It appears the plugin is sending a default image when none is available, which is a light blue blank cover. If there was a condition I could reference within the plugin when album art is not available I could do it... but, I don't know if that is possible.

    It looks like when this happens, the #PandoraMusicBox.Current.ArtworkURL is set to "http://www.pandora.com/images/no_album_art.jpg" So could you use this information to change the visibility of your image?

    Edit:
    using something like this in your visible tag:
    <visible>!String.Equals(#PandoraMusicBox.Current.ArtworkURL,http://www.pandora.com/images/no_album_art.jpg)</visible>

    (I'm at work, so I can't test it myself)

    Just a quick update, Pandora tweaked their API tonight causing the plugin to break. It is a little late here so we should have a new build out tomorrow morning.

    After I have my coffee.

    EDIT: Updated downloads on opening post of this thread and on our main download page. Will try to get archives posted later tonight.

    I have a small issue with this plugin. I like to be able to listen to pandora while watching a slideshow of my pictures. I did that today for the first time and it was nice. Except everytime a song changed, a pop-up would come up and display over the top of my slideshow. Any way to disable that or get rid of it?

    Still love this plugin!!!!

    Thanks

    What popup was displayed? Our plugin doesn't trigger any popups except for error conditions or when your system has gone idle for an extended period of time.

    Has the installer on page one for this been updated for 1.2RC or should I wait a bit to download it? This is one of my must have plugins so I dont want to switch without it :)
