Browser Tweaks is an application to help you easily configure the Browser of a VirtualDJ skin.

You can change any of the colors of the Browser, choose between default and Alternative icons (found on many custom skins) or even add Browser to a floating window



Download Link : http://www.virtualdj.com/plugins/index.html?addonid=80491

Notes :
- Windows only
- Once installed, the exe will be located to ProgramFiles->Browser Tweaks folder (EDIT: The new Installer adds a Desktop Icon too)
- If you choose to add a floating Browser window, assign a keyboard or custom button as show_window 'browserfloat'

Yeah i know, need to find a better Installer application :)
For now, you can go to ProgramFilesx86->Browser Tweaks and create a desktop shortcut of the exe file

fantastic work here DJDad.

Please could you consider adding options to adjust the text sizes and maybe a font selector too??

Changed the installer and now it should offer you the option to add a Desktop shortcut.

@Mark, Just the Browser font ?

How does this cope with skins that have multiple browsers (i.e. if the browser has various sizes due to other skin parts being switched in/out)?

Has this been considered? Does it only work on the main browser, or all that it finds?

The tweaks apply to every single browser element inside the zip file

Man I Luv this app...its made my life so much easier modding different skins... Thank u so much

On my PC (Windows 7 with 1920x1080 screen) some things in the app don't display correctly.

I have marked the affected areas:

Also, seperator should say separator

Will have a look. What is your screen's DPI ? It should be in Display Settings , the one that says something like "size of text 100% (Recommended) "

Posted Fri 21 Jul 17 @ 1:46 pm
Yes it looks like that was the cause. It was on 110% and if I set it to 100% there's no problem.

However, shouldn't your software be able to deal with that by itself? People could be using all sorts of % in their Windows settings.

Want to change the color as indicated in the diagram. What is that called scrollbar background or button?

Posted Fri 21 Jul 17 @ 3:55 pm
Selected, and Focus (2 elements)
In your screenshot focus is currently on Songs list and Selected is on Folders list (just to understand the difference)

Its in my Todo List - to offer High DPI support - but not a high priority atm.


Speaking of ToDo List, i am working on 2 features that will be included in version 3..
- A Preview window with some kind of mini/demo Browser to see how the Color changes affect the view, without having to know what each one is doing and without having to export to a skin and see in VirtualDJ.
- Load/Save/Edit Profiles so that you can save your favorite options/colors and easily apply to any skin you wish to edit.

It's starting to sound like the "wish" I posted recently...

"it would be nice to have this ability (changing browser colours) from within the VDJ executable, so it would be applied to every skin as your choice - only over ridden if a skin specifically has the <color> statement.

As the browser is already drawn by the exe and isn't a skin graphic, it makes sense to set its colours from the exe too."

The issue I had before with the text at 110% zoom is (almost) gone. Thanks for fixing it!

There's just one small problem remaining...
