I realise there's already a fairly long thread for the Now Playing plugin, but I felt since this is such a specific request I might be okay to post it separately in the hope that the clever author or someone can answer it
I'm using my modified version of the lovely Soita skin, which gives me everything I need. Except that of late I've been thinking how nice it would be to utilize the "tooltip" options to display the "composer" tag/field when I mouseover the song title. I'm listening to a lot of old jazz at the moment, and I'd love to be able to quickly distinguish the Cole Porter tunes from the Rodgers and Hart - for example
I see elsewhere that "composer" is a valid tag field, and being keen I thought I'd do this myself and simply reuse some of the code in the plugin and add the support. Oh no... I now see that I'd need to download MsVS, plus the SDK and then learn to code! Nice idea, but overkill for such a small task.
I'm asking therefore if any of you clever souls would find it easy to add support for this field in the Now Playing plugin, such that I can then simply write a measure for it and use it exactly as I do for all other track information? I trust I haven't grossly misunderstood the whole plugin creation process.
