La vue de contexte
Le volet Contexte est un panneau auquel vous pouvez ajouter diverses applets qui offrent des informations et des médias sur la musique en cours. Une connexion à Internet est nécessaire pour l'utiliser ces petites applications qui vont chercher des paroles, des informations, des photos et même des tablatures de guitare ou de basse, selon les applets que vous choisirez d'afficher.
Utiliser la vue contextuelle
Sur la photo, le volet Contexte lorsqu'aucune piste n'est en cours de lecture. S'il est masqué, utilisezpour l'afficher. Le volet est divisé en deux parties :
- The applet panel itself, where you can interact with some of the applets, such as editing lyrics or changing settings.
- The lower portion of the panel, where you can expand and collapse applets and manipulate them in various ways once you click the Configure Applets icon .
Once you click in the lower portion of the Context pane changes slightly; each applet tab gets an icon that you can click to remove it, and a list of applets appear. To add new applet, simply click on the applet, and it will appear in the pane, ready to be used. To change the applet display order, click the tabs and drag them around the bar.
There are several applets available to dock in your Context pane; below is a description of each.
|Information about the current track. You may rate it by clicking on the stars, add a position marker, or edit track metadata. When not playing, the applet displays collection information and Recently Played Tracks, which allows you to view the tracks and add them to the playlist.|
|Fetches artists similar to the currently playing one, with a short description and options to find them in your collection, or on Last.fm, and add to your current playlist.|
|Displays upcoming events that involve the current artist or group. You can set a venue locale to be watched by entering the applet settings and narrowing it down under the Favorites section.|
|Wikipedia page for the track or artist. Also browse other Wikipedia links, and use the back button to go back to the starting page.|
|View, add and edit Labels for the current song. To add a Label just type it in the text box and press Enter. Suggested Labels are user-contributed tags from Last.fm.|
|Fetches and displays guitar and bass tabs (if available). Not editable.|
|Displays the lyrics of the song that is currently playing. Add or change lyrics scripts in the Script Manager.|
|View albums from the current artist or band that are available in your local Collection.|
|This applet queries Flickr.com for pictures of the band you're listening to. Open the settings to add more keywords to your query (e.g.: live in tokyo).>|
|This is a new applet in version 2.8. It provides basic audio visualizations. A right click on it allows to configure the applet settings.|
