Thanks for your reply. I had written a script that sometimes added audio CDs to the Medias table with those three fields not set properly. I didn't expect that, and to me that was an undesirable feature or bug. Still, I didn't think it was a major problem, but wanted to check if you had found out di...

I noticed that trixmoto does the following in his SplitArtistTitle script: For Each itm In items If itm.ID>-1 Then itm.UpdateDB End If itm.WriteTags Next 'itm I changed my script to do the same thing - don't call UpdateDB if I'm updating a record that is not in the database. That seems like a good w...

Thanks. That's pretty much what I was expecting, but it's good to know for sure. I'm glad to hear that MM3 is more flexible. I really don't think the second issue is a big deal anyway. I noticed that Steegy's AssignCDMedia doesn't fix the three fields, which tends to confirm that they are not import...

@Steegy: I noticed that your script does not change anything in the IsAudioCD, CDDBId, or TOCData fields in the Medias table. It could be that are not worrying about importing data from an Audio CD, but I was wondering if you came to the conclusion that those fields really don't matter, in any case....

I don't really understand the question. Where do you want the link to be placed? The HTML you provided implies that you wanted the links to be in some sort of an HTML document, but nothing in the standard MediaMonkey window is based on HTML, as far as I know. Panels and forms can be added that inclu...

This isn't exactly what you are asking for, but you probably would be better off using some specialized tool that is external to MediaMonkey if you aren't happy with the way MediaMonkey is normalizing music. Assuming you are using MP3s, a good tool (especially for trimming them) is mp3DirectCut . A ...

Adding Columns

As far as I know, some properties of the SongData object can not be displayed in the main Media Monkey grid. I am thinking of things such as composer, lyricist, etc. Basically, if right-clicking on the column heading doesn't list the field, it can't be added easily through scripting. I could be wron...

As I've said, the API is known to be previously lacking, hence why the new wiki has been introduced, so it should improve rapidly now. I did not see you saying anything like that until I already wasted considerable time. What good does it do to provide information too late? It is not your fault or ...

What I meant is that you can add things to the wiki, or rewrite stuff so it is more understandable. If it's incomplete or not 100% correct, someone else (who might know exactly how it works) will see the updates and complete/correct them. Speaking for myself, I check the wiki's "recently changed" a...

I think MM3 (and almost all Windows software using an "built-in" browser) will keep using the IE rendering engine for some more years to come. Reasons should be obvious: everyone has it, and it's easy to use/interface with, and it's actually completely available ... and they are probably using Micr...

Add-On for scripters: There are OutputDebugString and OutputDebugStringMM methods in SDBTools object.. Where? In MM2 or MM3 or some plug-in? I just checked the IDL file I generated from MM 2.5.5.998 and they don't seem to be there. That still seems to be the latest version on MM's download site. :-?

Feel free to change things in the wiki (as long as it's mostly correct); you might be in a situation that makes it much easier to explain stuff for new scripters, as for people who already know the stuff, some necessary and important details (?!) might look "obvious". If you get something wrong, do...

You probably can't just add an empty SongData object to the library, because that doesn't have an album, artist, ... which it might need to be added successfully. This adds a song: Option Explicit Dim objSL,objSong Sub MyTest() Set objSL = SDB.NewSongList Set objSong = SDB.NewSongData objSong.Updat...

UpdateAll on the SongList object would be better. Sorry, I am frustrated right now and am taking it out on you. BTW, IMO, UpdateAll shouldn't be able to add anything to the database. Updating is not adding. The concepts should be kept separate. Either ISDBApplication::NewSongData should add a "blan...
