AWM 6.0 B1 with foobar2000

Actual Window Manager program seems to have no effect on being able to control placement of window for foobar2000 audio player program- anywhere, the Actual Tools Menus do appear properly, but for example, trying to 'center' program window by left-clicking, the AWT menu does appear but selecting > Alignment> Middle-Center has no effect, as nor does any other menu selection.

Do a search, unfortunatly the writers if foobar2000, while a nice program, are unwilling to 'unlock' support for third party control of their window.

Thanks for the information Matt, I read the relevant info and see that it is a known issue and it is a problem with foobar itself- thanks for the heads up!

I have used foobar2000 for a long time, and I'm now running fb2k 1.0, and it works fine with AWM.  Here are my settings for detecting the fb2k main window.

Scott,

We've tried to download the latest fb2k version, and it seems that it's still incompatible with AWM.
Startup action are applied, but then none of title buttons or menu items works at all.

Are you sure that AWM's functions work well in fb2k 1.0?

Sorry, I did not receive notification that a new post had been made in this thread.

I am using AWM 6.0 beta 1 and fb2k 1.0, on WinXP Pro SP3.  Startup actions work for me, and after that, the fb2k title bar buttons work fine, and the title bar buttons that AWM adds to fb2k also work fine.  The fb2k toolbar and menu also work fine.  In other words, everything is working fine here, and I have it set up as shown in my post above.

If I move and/or resize the fb2k window, I can press the "reapply settings" hotkey, or use the "Reapply settings" function of the AWM title bar button to move the fb2k window back.  It works properly.  The on top/not on top button also works properly.

Could it be that I have exclusions that aren't present by default, and having those exclusions makes it work?

Scott,

I'm really intrigued!

Do you have any non-standard fb2k plugins? What User interface module is displayed in Preferences\Display?

Could you please send both your AMW config, and the contents of fbk2's Configuration folder (it's either below fb2k installation folder, or in %appdata%\foobar2000) to abelyakov@actualtools.com?

I've just tried to download "Columns UI" and selected it as a UI. With this UI module, fb2k became compatible with AWM.

Looks like it's only the standard UI module which make fb2k incompatible with AWM.

Scott, thank you for figuring this out!
Several our customers have asked us about fb2k incompatibility. Now we can simply recommend them to use this UI module.
