FS#4777 - Different "WPS" screens

It would be nice to have different wps screens. We can’t show all the informations on the same wps some time. For instance, if I click on a button, it could show a second wps screen with different informations (detailed id3 tags, etc.) without having to go in “Show id3 infos”

This behaviour would be a bit like the apple firmware which have different wps (one with the progressbar, another one with the fullscreen cover, another one with the lyrics)

Rockbox rocks ;-)

In the WPS there are conditionals, and the ability to make various strings or information alternate with each other.

Using that, you can pretty easily have it cycle between two different WPSes, and probably even have a feature like “Show more information when Paused” or what not.

Maybe if you could set a button (perhaps if you hold the ‘A’ button on the gigabeat) that will set a boolean value (only in play screen). Then when we make our wpses, we can make conditionals for when the value is true or false, that way we could sortve have a different wps for when the value is true, and when its false. Perhaps, if it is impractical to set this to a button on other targets, it could be an option in the context menu, or it could be set as ‘up’ in the quick menu.

I think that it is also important that the background image can change when the boolean value is changed, this would require that conditionals could work with background images.

Awesome idea!

another idea is a tag in the wps which tells which wps-”sets” to cycle through on this “special keypress”.

at the beginning of the wps could tell the system to cycle through the wps-sets
on keypress.

that way you could define for example AA with |f|, the mp3 details with |g| and file info with |h| and then cycle through this info inside the same area on the screen.

i think this could propably be easily implemented with the conditional viewports in some way, as long as we find a key to use :-)

replace wps-set in the above post with viewport-set
