Issue: How can I display the rating of songs in the search results of foobar2000?
The popular music player foobar2000 (or foobar, as I like to call it) offers a great solution to work through a collection of songs. Foobar also offers the option to rate songs with 1 to 5 stars. However the program does not include the possibility to display the given rating inside of the search box. With a short expression this evidently useful feature can be easily implemented.
Open up foobar2000 and click on Library > Configure to bring up the preferences. Make your way to Playlist View within the nested tree. Add a new Custom column and paste in this pattern:
Type in a name to recognize your column later on. If your Playlist View resembles something like this, hit Ok:
Now open your search dialogue and click on a blank space next to the header with column names. A context menu will appear where you may choose the column you just created:
As the column appears you are now able to move it by drag & dropping it around. Congratulations, you just enabled the display of the track rating in foobar2000:
