Playlist in Main Window 2.0.0 (2012-08-05)

Post by Bex » Sun May 17, 2009 2:26 pm

This script displays which Playlist a track belongs to, in a column in the main window. It optionally supports Static Playlists as well as AutoPlaylists and you can choose different columns for them if you wish. You can also optionally include Count of Playlist into the same or different column.

The script automatically cater for changes involving Static Platlists but NOT for AutoPlaylists. They have to be updated manually by right clicking on the Playlist node and select "Update Playlist info in Main Window". Which does the same thing as the ""Activate/Update"" button in the Options.

You activate the script in the settings:

Here's how it looks in the main window, I've used Custom1 as the field:

There are some things which aren't optimal:
- To see made changes in a playlist in the Main Window. You need to select another node and then go back to the node you were in. You can try to press F5 but it doesn't always work.
- The Column(s) you have selected to see the Playlist info in is actually written to the tag of the file. However, the script doesn't automatically write the values to the tag when you activate the script. But after the script is activated and you change something in the track properties, the value is written to the tag. (Normal MM behaviour.)
- If you don't want to use the script after you have activated it. You must uninstall it from within MM and then restart MM. You can't just delete the .vbs file since it will still leave the Database Triggers in the Database.
- If you uninstall it you also need to manually delete the values in the selected field.

Other than that I hope you'll like the script. It was a bit difficult to get everything to work correctly, especially with the Database Triggers.

Special thanks goes to Nyn who has helped a lot in testing the script! :D


As usual. Comments, bug reports and suggestions are welcome!

Enjoy!

this looks awesome! It's a work-around and I still think MM should do this natively, but I'm installing it right now and hoping it will do the trick ;)

thanks for your work!
