Clear Now Playing Button 1.2 (2008-09-07) [MM3]

Post by onenonymous » Sun Aug 24, 2008 9:35 am

As requested here, this script adds a button to the Edit toolbar and a "Clear" menu item to the Now Playing window main menu to give one-click clear of items in Now Playing.

Version 1.2 Update September 7, 2008 - Download the installer
-Added code requested hereto:
  • 1. Clear all but playing track
    2. Clear all above playing track
    3. Clear all below playing track
-Added menu items to Clear list in Right Click for the two Now Playing Pop-Up menus and the Now Playing panel's List Menu
-Added compatibility with Right Click For Scripts so you can use it to put buttons or menus where ever else you want

Version 1.0 August 25, 2008 Download the installer

Great!
Since you have figured out how this works I have a request. I would like to have the functions below added to the Right click menu of NP:
1. Clear all but playing track
2. Clear all above playing track
3. Clear all below playing track

That would be great, wouldn't it? :)
Advanced Duplicate Find & Fix Find More From Same - Custom Search. | Transfer PlayStat & Copy-Paste Tags/AlbumArt between any tracks.
Tagging Inconsistencies Do you think you have your tags in order? Think again...
Play History & Stats Node Like having your Last-FM account stored locally, but more advanced.
Case & Leading Zero Fixer Works on filenames too!

I second my request for these functions.... and I don't know what the difference is, if there is any, but I would like these three available from the Now Playing List.

PS: I had to change it to the Standard toolbar because I don't use the Edit toolbar. :wink:

Hello Nyn, like you I don't use the Edit toolbar.
Umm, for that matter I don't use the Standard toolbar either.
I just have the Search toolbar at the top of the screen.

And loading MM3 is taking ages, coz I have 150+ tracks in my Now Playing list when it closes.
I would love to have that Clear Now Playing button up there.
Any ideas how that can be achieved....or is it going to be put on the heading of the Now Playing window 8)

Change this line:

Code: Select all

Set butObj = SDB.UI.AddMenuItem(SDB.UI.Menu_TbEdit,-1,-1)
to this for Search toolbar:

Code: Select all

Set butObj = SDB.UI.AddMenuItem(SDB.UI.Menu_TbSearch,-1,-1)
or this for Standard Toolbar:

Code: Select all

Set butObj = SDB.UI.AddMenuItem(SDB.UI.Menu_TbStandard,-1,-1)
also, you might want to check out Trix's Clear Now Playing Script- it will clear the NP on startup.

Thanks Nyn, I don't know anything about scripting.
What program do you suggest I use to open and edit the mmip file to change line 20.
I opened it in a txt editor (notepad++) but there were only 14 rows :)

You're on the right path but wrong file. You want to edit the ClearNowPlayingButton.vbs file in the Scripts\Auto folder. :wink:

if you want to force clear the Now Playing list on each restart, add the following in the OnStartup procedure (e.g. it should be the next line after 'Sub OnStartup'

Code: Select all

  SDB.Player.PlaylistClear
you might also want to post your problem in the Clear Now Playing Script thread, there's probably and easy answer... :-?

Did you edit the ClearNowPlaying.vbs file to suit your needs? This section here:

Code: Select all

limit = 100		'maximum number of songs to leave in now playing

clearall = 0 		'set to 1 if you wish to clear all files
clearplayed = 1 	'set to 1 if you wish to clear just those before the current
clearextra = 0		'set to 1 if you wish to clear all but the first (limit) songs
'NB. Only one of these options can be set to 1, the rest must be 0
