Topic: LOCK Browser windows - Sideview - Sidelist... ???
How exactly can we LOCK these areas so they don't open and close when locked?
I've searched the forums very thoroughly, but could not find an answer.
Thank you :)

Just click on the specific label to open; click again to close.

Just click on the label that says "Sideview" or "Info".
You'll find them at the right side of your browser.
If you click on them, the sideview will "open" and you can resize it if needed.
Click again and it will hide again.

I understand. It's another new, 'feature', removing the LOCK button. There is no longer any way to LOCK the panels when set exactly as you like them.
Actually you could never lock them.
What the padlock on VirtualDj 7 did was to "lock" the panels open instead of opening/close automatically.
Even if the padlock was active on a panel you could still drag the panel to resize it.
On VirtualDj 8 the panels are always "locked"
"Locked" is not the right term of course, but they are always as if in VirtualDj 7 you had the padlocks active.
Now the panels won't open/close automatically when you move your mouse over their area. Instead they open/close by clicking their caption.
That's the only difference.
If by "lock" you mean a way to prevent accidental resizing of panels e.t.c. then that's not possible now and it wasn't possible before in VirtualDj 7 as well.
In VirtualDj 8 there's a small 'hack' that could behave as a "lock":
The size and status of browser panels is stored within program settings.
This means that once you have everything set as you like you can create a backup of your settings.xml file and if you ever need to restore the browser you can restore the settings.xml file back.
Or you could edit the settings.xml file and replace the "new" stored setting with the "old" one.

Depending on what I'm doing, playing live/reviwing/database work, different layouts/fields are needed.
I think I tried copying the entry in settings into a script but it didn't work.
