\chapter{\label{ref:wps_tags}WPS Tags}
\section{Status Bar}
\begin{table}
\begin{tagmap}{}{}
\config{\%we} & Display Status Bar\\
\config{\%wd} & Hide Status Bar\\
\end{tagmap}
\end{table}
These tags override the player setting for the display of the status bar.
They must be noted on their own line (which will not be shown in the WPS).

\section{Information from the track tags}
\begin{table}
  \begin{tagmap}{}{}
    \config{\%ia} & Artist\\
    \config{\%ic} & Composer\\
    \config{\%id} & Album Name\\
    \config{\%ig} & Genre Name\\
    \config{\%in} & Track Number\\
    \config{\%it} & Track Title\\
    \config{\%iv} & ID3 version (1.0, 1.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, or empty if not an ID3 tag)\\
    \config{\%iy} & Year\\
  \end{tagmap}
\end{table}
Remember that this information is not always available, so use the 
conditionals to show alternate information in preference to assuming.

These tags, when written with a capital ``I'' (e.g. \config{\%Ia} or \config{\%Ic}),
produce the information for the next song to be played.

\section{Power Related Information}
\begin{table}
  \begin{tagmap}{}{}
    \config{\%bl} & Numeric battery level in percents\\
                  & Can also be used in a conditional: 
                    \config{\%?bl{\textless}-1{\textbar}0{\textbar}1{\textbar}%
                    2{\textbar}\ldots{\textbar}N{\textgreater}},
                    where the value $-1$ is used when the battery level isn't
                    known (it usually is)\\
    \config{\%bv} & The battery level in volts\\
    \config{\%bt} & Estimated battery time left\\
    \config{\%bp} & ``p'' if the charger is connected (only on targets
                    that can charge batteries)\\
    \config{\%bc} & ``c'' if the unit is currently charging the battery (only on
                    targets that have software charge control or monitoring)\\
    \config{\%bs} & Remaining time of the sleep timer (if it is set)\\
  \end{tagmap}
\end{table}

\section{Information about the file}
\begin{table}
  \begin{tagmap}{}{}
    \config{\%fb} & File Bitrate (in kbps)\\
    \config{\%fc} & File Codec (e.g. ``MP3'' or ``FLAC''). %
           This tag can also be used in a conditional tag, %
           \config{\%?fc{\textless}mp1\-{\textbar}mp2\-{\textbar}mp3\-%
           {\textbar}aiff\-{\textbar}wav\-{\textbar}ogg\-{\textbar}flac\-%
           {\textbar}mpc\-{\textbar}a52\-{\textbar}wavpack\-{\textbar}alac\-%
           {\textbar}aac\-{\textbar}shn\-{\textbar}sid\-{\textbar}adx\-%
           {\textbar}nsf\-{\textbar}speex\-{\textbar}spc\-{\textbar}ape\-%
           {\textbar}wma\-{\textbar}mod\-{\textbar}sap%
           {\textbar}unknown{\textgreater}}.\\
                  & The codec order is as follows: MP1, MP2, MP3, AIFF, WAV,
           Ogg Vorbis (OGG), FLAC, MPC, AC3, WavPack (WV), ALAC, AAC,
           Shorten (SHN), SID, ADX, NSF, Speex, SPC, APE, WMA, MOD, SAP.\\
    \config{\%ff} & File Frequency (in Hz)\\
    \config{\%fm} & File Name\\
    \config{\%fn} & File Name (without extension)\\
    \config{\%fp} & File Path\\
    \config{\%fs} & File Size (in Kilobytes)\\
    \config{\%fv} & ``(avg)'' if variable bit rate or empty string if constant bit rate\\
    \config{\%d1} & First directory from the end of the file path\\
    \config{\%d2} & Second directory from the end of the file path\\
    \config{\%d3} & Third directory from the end of the file path\\
  \end{tagmap}
\end{table}
Example for the \config{\%dN} commands: If the path is 
``/Rock/Kent/Isola/11 - 747.mp3'', \config{\%d1} is ``Isola'', 
\config{\%d2} is ``Kent'' and \config{\%d3} is ``Rock''.

These tags, when written with the first letter capitalized (e.g. \config{\%Fn} or \config{\%D2}),
produce the information for the next file to be played.

\section{Playlist/Song Info}
\begin{table}
  \begin{tagmap}{}{}
    \config{\%pb} & Progress Bar\\
    \opt{player}{
          & This will display a one character ``cup''

    \opt{lcd_bitmap}{
         & This will replace the entire line with a progress bar. \\
         & You can set the height, position and width of the progressbar %
           (in pixels): \config{\%pb{\textbar}height{\textbar}leftpos%
           {\textbar}rightpos{\textbar}toppos{\textbar}}} \\

         & \config{\%?pv{\textless}0{\textbar}1{\textbar}2{\textbar}\ldots%
           {\textbar}N{\textgreater}}\\
         & 0 is used for mute, the last option is used for values greater than zero.\\
  \end{tagmap}
\end{table}

\section{Runtime Database}
\begin{table}
  \begin{tagmap}{}{}
    \config{\%rp} & Song playcount\\
    \config{\%rr} & Song rating (0-10). This tag can also be used in a conditional tag: %
           \config{\%?rr{\textless}0{\textbar}1{\textbar}2{\textbar}3{\textbar}%
           4{\textbar}5{\textbar}6{\textbar}7{\textbar}8{\textbar}9{\textbar}%
           10{\textgreater}}\\
  \end{tagmap}
\end{table}

\opt{swcodec}{
\section{Sound (DSP) settings}
\begin{table}

    \config{\%Sp} & Current playback pitch \\
  \opt{swcodec}{
    \config{\%xf} & Crossfade setting, in the order: Off, Shuffle, Skip, Always\\
    \config{\%rg} & ReplayGain value in use (x.y dB). If used as a conditional,
           Replaygain type in use: \config{\%?rg{\textless}Off{\textbar}Track%
           {\textbar}Album{\textbar}TrackShuffle{\textbar}AlbumShuffle%
           {\textbar}No tag{\textgreater}}\\
  }
  \end{tagmap}
\end{table}
}
\opt{h100,h300}{
\section{Hold Switches}
\begin{table}
  \begin{tagmap}{}{}
    \config{\%mh} & ``h'' if the main unit hold switch is on\\
    \config{\%mr} & ``r'' if the remote hold switch is on\\
  \end{tagmap}
\end{table}
}

\section{Virtual LED}
\begin{table}
  \begin{tagmap}{}{}
    \config{\%lh} & ``h'' if the \disk\ is accessed\\
  \end{tagmap}
\end{table}

\section{Repeat Mode}
\begin{table}
  \begin{tagmap}{}{}
    \config{\%mm} & Repeat mode, 0-4, in the order: Off, All, One, Shuffle
           \opt{player,recorder,recorderv2fm}{, A-B}\\
  \end{tagmap}
\end{table}
Example: \config{\%?mm{\textless}Off{\textbar}All{\textbar}One{\textbar}Shuffle%

\section{Playback Mode Tags}
\begin{table}
  \begin{tagmap}{}{}

           Fast Forward, Rewind\\
  \end{tagmap}
\end{table}
Example: \config{\%?mp{\textless}Stop{\textbar}Play{\textbar}Pause{\textbar}%
Ffwd{\textbar}Rew{\textgreater}}

\section{Changing Volume}
\begin{table}
  \begin{tagmap}{}{}
    \config{\%mv[t]} & ``v'' if the volume is being changed\\
  \end{tagmap}
\end{table}

The tag produces the letter ``v'' while the volume is being changed and some
amount of time after that, i.e. after the volume button has been released. The
optional parameter \config{t} specifies that amount of time, in seconds. If it
is not specified, 1 second is assumed.

The tag can be used as the switch in a conditional tag to display different things
depending on whether the volume is being changed. It can produce neat effects
when used with conditional viewports.

Example: \config{\%?mv2.5{\textless}Volume changing{\textbar}\%pv{\textgreater}}

The example above will display the text ``Volume changing'' if the volume is
being changed and 2.5 secs after the volume button has been released. After
that, it will display the volume value.

\section{Settings}
\begin{table}
  \begin{tagmap}{}{}
    \config{\%St{\textbar}<setting name>{\textbar}} & The value of the Rockbox
             setting with the specified name. See \reference{ref:config_file_options}
             for the list of the available settings.\\
  \end{tagmap}
\end{table}

Examples:
\begin{enumerate}
\item As a simple tag: \config{\%St{\textbar}skip length{\textbar}}
\item As a conditional: \config{\%?St{\textbar}eq enabled{\textbar}{\textless}Eq is enabled{\textbar}Eq is disabled{\textgreater}}
\end{enumerate}


\opt{lcd_bitmap}{
\section{Images}
\begin{table}
  \begin{tagmap}{}{}
    \nopt{archos}{%
    \config{\%X{\textbar}filename.bmp{\textbar}}
        & Load and set a backdrop image for the WPS.
          This image must be exactly the same size as your LCD.\\
    }%
    \config{\%P{\textbar}filename.bmp{\textbar}}
        & Load a Progress Bar image for the WPS. Use \config{\%pb} tag to show the 
          progress bar\\
    \config{\%x{\textbar}n{\textbar}filename{\textbar}x{\textbar}y{\textbar}}
        & Load and display an image\\
        & \config{n}: image ID (a-z and A-Z) for later referencing in \config{\%xd}\\
        & \config{filename}: file name relative to \fname{/.rockbox/} and including ``.bmp''\\
        & \config{x}: x coordinate\\
        & \config{y}: y coordinate.\\
    \config{\%xl{\textbar}n{\textbar}filename{\textbar}x{\textbar}y{\textbar}[nimages{\textbar}]}
        & Preload an image for later display (useful for when your images are displayed conditionally)\\
        & \config{n}: image ID (a-z and A-Z) for later referencing in \config{\%xd}\\
        & \config{filename}: file name relative to \fname{/.rockbox/} and including ``.bmp''\\
        & \config{x}: x coordinate\\
        & \config{y}: y coordinate\\
        & \config{nimages}: (optional) number of sub-images (tiled vertically, of the same height)
          contained in the bitmap. Default is 1.\\
    \config{\%xdn[i]} & Display a preloaded image\\
        & \config{n}: image ID (a-z and A-Z) as it was specified in \config{\%x} or \config{\%xl}\\
        & \config{i}: (optional) number of the sub-image to display (a-z for 1-26 and A-Z for 27-52).
          By default the first (i.e. top most) sub-image will be used.\\
  \end{tagmap}
\end{table}

Examples:
\begin{enumerate}
\item Load and display the image \fname{/.rockbox/bg.bmp} with ID ``a'' at 37, 109:\\
\config{\%x{\textbar}a{\textbar}bg.bmp{\textbar}37{\textbar}109{\textbar}}
\item Load a bitmap strip containing 5 volume icon images (all the same size)
with image ID ``M'', and then reference the individual sub-images in a conditional:\\
\config{\%xl{\textbar}M{\textbar}volume.bmp{\textbar}134{\textbar}153{\textbar}5{\textbar}}\\
\config{\%?pv<\%xdMa{\textbar}\%xdMb{\textbar}\%xdMc{\textbar}\%xdMd{\textbar}%
\%xdMe>}
\end{enumerate}


\note{
  \begin{itemize}
  \item The images must be in BMP format
  \item The image tag must be on its own line
  \item The ID is case sensitive, giving 52 different ID's
  \item The size of the LCD screen for each player varies. See table below 
        for appropriate sizes of each device. The x and y coordinates must 
        repect each of the players' limits.
  \end{itemize}
}
}

\opt{albumart}{
\section{Album Art}
\begin{table}
  \begin{tagmap}{}{}
    \config{\%Cl{\textbar}x{\textbar}y{\textbar}[[l{\textbar}c{\textbar}r]maxwidth]{\textbar}[[t{\textbar}c{\textbar}b]maxheight]{\textbar}}
        & Define the settings for albumart\\
        & \config{x}: x coordinate\\
        & \config{y}: y coordinate\\
        & \config{maxwidth}: Maximum height\\
        & \config{maxheight}: Maximum width\\
    \config{\%C}  & Display the album art as configured. This tag can also be used as a conditional.\\
  \end{tagmap}
\end{table}

The picture will be rescaled, preserving aspect ratio to fit the given
\config{maxwidth} and \config{maxheight}. If the aspect ratio doesn't match the
configured values, the picture will be placed according to the flags to the
\config{maxwidth} and \config{maxheight} parameters:
\begin{itemize}
  \item \config{maxwidth}:
    \begin{description}
      \item[\config{l}.] Align left
      \item[\config{c}.] Align center (default)
      \item[\config{r}.] Align right
    \end{description}
  \item \config{maxheight}:
    \begin{description}
      \item[\config{t}.] Align left
      \item[\config{c}.] Align center (default)
      \item[\config{b}.] Align right
    \end{description}
\end{itemize}

Examples:
\begin{enumerate}
  \item Load albumart at position 20,40 and display it without resizing:\\
  \config{\%Cl{\textbar}20{\textbar}40{\textbar}{\textbar}{\textbar}}
  \item Load albumart at position 0,20 and resize it to be at most 100x100
        pixels. If the image isn't square, align it to the bottom-right
        corner:\\
  \config{\%CL{\textbar}0{\textbar}20{\textbar}r100{\textbar}b100{\textbar}}
\end{enumerate}
}

\section{Alignment}
\begin{table}
  \begin{tagmap}{}{}
    \config{\%al} & Align the text left\\
    \config{\%ac} & Center the text\\
    \config{\%ar} & Align the text right\\
  \end{tagmap}
\end{table}
All alignment tags may be present in one line, but they need to be in the 
order left -- center -- right. If the aligned texts overlap, they are merged.

\section{Conditional Tags}

\begin{table}
\begin{tagmap}{}{}
\config{\%?xx{\textless}true{\textbar}false{\textgreater}}
    & If / Else: Evaluate for true or false case \\
\config{\%?xx{\textless}alt1{\textbar}alt2{\textbar}alt3{\textbar}\dots{\textbar}else{\textgreater}}
    & Enumerations: Evaluate for first / second / third / \dots / last condition \\
\end{tagmap}
\end{table}

\section{Subline Tags}

\begin{table}
\begin{tagmap}{}{}
\config{\%t{\textless}time{\textgreater}}
    & Set the subline display cycle time (\%t5 or \%t3.4 formats) \\
\config{;}
    & Split items on a line into separate sublines \\
\end{tagmap}
\end{table}

Allows grouping of several items (sublines) onto one line, with the
display cycling round the defined sublines. See
\reference{ref:AlternatingSublines} for details. 


\section{Time and Date}
  \begin{table}
    \begin{tagmap}{}{}
    \opt{rtc}{

The \%cc tag returns ``c'' if the necessary hardware is present and can also be
used as a conditional. This can be very useful for designing a WPS that works on
multiple targets, some with and some without a clock. By using this tag as a
conditional it is possible to display current date and time on those targets that
support this
\opt{rtc}{ (like the \playertype)},
or alternate information on those that do not
\nopt{rtc}{ (like the \playertype)}%
.

Example:
\config{\%?cc{\textless}\%cH:\%cM{\textbar}No clock detected{\textgreater}}
