Description

When playing a song or stream in the Winamp Classic interface and the main window is shaded, it's not possible to see what's playing (ie. the title) without popping up the playlist window.

It would be really helpful to have the little popup "balloon" with the song info that displays when hovering over a song in the playlist window to also pop up for the current song when hovering over the middle (the pulsing equalizer band graphic / time display) of the shaded main window.

This is really only applicable to the Winamp Classic interface.

I've included a rather simple patch to a single source file (skins/main.cc) which does just that. NOTE: the skins-qt/main.cc will pbly. need changin' in a very similar way, but I don't have QT so can't test.

Never mind the patch, it's "STUCKSTERED" - grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr$%^$*$&*%&*%(!

UNstuckstered!!

Line 68 should be "return Window::motion (event);" instead of "return true;" Pbm. was the event to move the window was not getting passed upstream so the window was "STUCK". Apparently I hadn't tried MOVING the window whilst testing.

I've learnt over the years that there ain't NO BETTER WAY TO FIND THE SERIOUS BUG than to PUBLISH a piece of code! :D
