Re: Best Practices for Script Writing

I stand corrected. Thanks. I guess I wasn't reading as clearly as I thought. I'll give it a shot now that I have examples and such to examine.

Appreciate the patience and replies.

Re: Best Practices for Script Writing

Thank you. I didn't know that was there. I'll download MM5 and take a look.
It still would be nice to have these online as part of the documentation though.

Just a thought.
Thanks.

Re: Best Practices for Script Writing

Thanks for the links on skype. You mentioned the errors are occurring because objects aren't being used in the variables and so they are being wiped when the script is reloaded. Since this looks like a complete rewrite of the base code is required, I'd rather not spend time using vbs for this since ...

A little push is all..

If I missed a critical page somewhere that addresses the below post, apologies. Please point me to it. I have coding experience, but sometimes jumping into a new platform isn't clear. It would be helpful if there were fully functional script examples for vbs and javascript. Yes, I've read the develo...

Audio won't switch to headphones

Is this a MediaMonkey issue or a windows issue? With MM open I'm playing music through my speakers on the computer (doesn't matter if it's a notebook or desktop). I flip on the blue-tooth headphones. My computer shows that the headphones are now the default source for audio, but MM still is playing ...

Re: Best Practices for Script Writing

Thank you for the reply. I've read that page. I'm assuming you have to put this inside your vbs script. Yes? As per your reply, I've tried it. At the start of my script.

Best Practices for Script Writing

What are the best practices you'd recommend for writing scripts (currently using VBS) inside MediaMonkey? I ask because the current process I'm using is: 1 - Write some code. Usually a single function/sub. 2 - Add to mmip file. 3 - Uninstall current add-on. 4 - Install new add-on (hopefully without ...

Re: Genre Finder 5.0 - Updated 05/08/2012

It looks like something else is going on with this script. It stopped working for me as well. I've got no new genres found for a while now.
Maybe lastfm made some sort of change on the backend to stop talking to outside requests?

Re: GenrePicker Addon - Documentation

GenrePicker: This addon allows the user to quickly select from a list of genres, in a panel displayed in MediaMonkey, and have the selected genre saved to the mp3 tags of the currently playing song. Once installed, there are now two new additions to the menu items: EDIT: Under Edit there is now a Ge...

Re: GenrePicker Addon - Documentation

Hello, Sorry to hear that. Not entirely sure what could be the issue. I only experienced those issues during scripting. The version I have now, and uploaded does not throw any errors on my system. If others are getting this also please let me know. Note, a song must be playing in order for the scrip...

Re: GenrePicker Addon - Documentation

Version 1.2 After consideration I decided to attack this from the building of the checkboxes. In this version each genre loaded into the checkbox subroutine is examined for a single ampersand and replaced with a double ampersand. This allows the checkbox labels to be displayed correctly and nothing ...

Restart after Uninstall (.ini)

Some addons have the user restart MediaMonkey after they are installed. From the install.ini file it looks like this line: Function=OnStartup() I would like to have the user restart MediaMonkey after they uninstall the addon. This way the panels are closed and the settings are wiped. Using the same ...

Re: GenrePicker Addon - Documentation

Thank you for this reply. That was what I needed. I thought perhaps this was just a display issue in the panel, but unfortunately the panel itself is using the genre (with the double ampersands) so I had to make three location adjustments. Now, if the panel had a displayed name that was completely i...

GenrePicker Addon - Documentation

Hello, I was able to rewrite the script for QuickMoods and created a GenrePicker extension. It shows 25 Genres as default and allows for multiple selections, just like QuickMoods. This addon, like QuickMoods, is meant to be used while listening to music. If you find you don't have a genre for someth...
