Create Original Date

Post by kiwichick » Sat Apr 17, 2010 10:05 pm

Hi there, I know next to nothing about script writing but I recently managed to alter the SwapArtistTitle script so that I could copy Artist name to AlbumArtist name. I created the following vbs file:

Sub CreateAlbumArtist
' Define variables
Dim list, itm, i

' Get list of selected tracks from MediaMonkey
Set list = SDB.CurrentSongList

' Process all selected tracks
For i=0 To list.count-1
Set itm = list.Item(i)

' Copy the fields
itm.AlbumArtistName = itm.ArtistName
Next

' Write all back to DB and update tags
list.UpdateAll
End Sub

And I added the following to scripts.ini:

[CreateAlbumArtist]
FileName=CreateAlbumArtist.vbs
ProcName=CreateAlbumArtist
Order=6
DisplayName=Create AlbumArtist
Description=Copies Artist to AlbumArtist
Language=VBScript
ScriptType=0

It works perfectly. Now I'm trying to alter the script again to copy Date to OriginalDate but I can't get it to work. I have created the following vbs file:

Sub CreateOriginalDate
' Define variables
Dim list, itm, i

' Get list of selected tracks from MediaMonkey
Set list = SDB.CurrentSongList

' Process all selected tracks
For i=0 To list.count-1
Set itm = list.Item(i)

' Copy the fields
itm.OriginalDate = itm.Date
Next

' Write all back to DB and update tags
list.UpdateAll
End Sub

And I added the following to scripts.ini:

[CreateOriginalDate]
FileName=CreateOriginalDate.vbs
ProcName=CreateOriginalDate
Order=7
DisplayName=Create OriginalDate
Description=Copies Date to OriginalDate
Language=VBScript
ScriptType=0

But when I run the script I get the following error:

Error #438 - Microsoft runtime error
Object doesn't support this property or method 'itm.OriginalDate'
File: "C:\Program Files\MediaMonkey\Scripts\CreateOriginalDate.vbs, Line:13, Column :0

I'm guessing that OriginalDate should read something else. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.

Never mind. I got it fixed. It was a bit confusing when the MM column names are Date and Original Date but the required script names are Year and Original Year. I just changed Date for Year across the board and now it works.

You could write that as some kind of programing exercise, but also you could use the RegExp Find and Replace add-on to copy fields e.g. Year to Original Year or Date to Original Date or whatever to whatever - after the installation just choose Edit/Tag Manipulation Presets/Copy <From Field> to <Into Field> and select your source and destination fields.
Magic Nodes 4.3.3 / 5.2 RegExp Find & Replace 4.4.9 / 5.2  Invert Selection/Select None 1.5.1  Export/Create Playlists for Child Nodes 4.1.1 / 5.4.1  Expand Child Nodes/Expand All 1.1.2  Event Logger 2.7  Filtered Statistics Report 1.6  Track Redirection & Synchronization 3.4.2  Restore/Synchronize Database 3.1.8 / 4.0.1  Find Currently Playing Track 1.3.2  Queue List 1.2.1  Add to Library on Play 1.0.1  Tree Report for Child Nodes 1.1.1  Update Location of Files in Database 1.4.5 / 2.3  Inherit Child Playlists 1.0.2  Add Currently Playing/Selected Track(s) to Playlist 1.1.2
