Is it possible..

Is it possible to write a script that would, when activated, pause the music between each song and prompt me for a rating? This would be useful when listening to something for the first time, as all to often I forget about rating the music so end up with only one or two tracks with ratings.

Thanks!

You want this prompt to appear at the end of every song?

Code: Select all

Awesome, I'll try it out and let you know as soon as I get home. You kick ass Steegy =)

If it's easy enough a menu item or some other way to turn it on or off would be great.

Thanks again!

As I don't like to rate songs the first time I actually listened to them, I did a little modification to this script which actually considers the playcount of the played song as well. This way I get the popup after listening to the song the second time.

Simply replace:

Code: Select all

If PreviouslyPlayedSong.Rating = -1 Then
in RatePlayedSong.vbs with

Code: Select all

If PreviouslyPlayedSong.Rating = -1 And PreviouslyPlayedSong.Playcounter > 1 Then
Of course, you can set this number to any other as well (if you want to listen to a song for ten times, before you rate it ;)

Steegy ==> Is it possible to make the buttons consist of the rating-stars instead of number? (I.e. "90" becomes 4½ star, "80" becomes 4 star and so on...)
Apart from that this is a cool add-on!

Here's an updated version.
You can change the caption of the rating buttons by changing the contents of the BtnCapt array.

This script in an autoscript without installer. See the FAQ for installation instructions.

Small change to fix a minor annoyance

Hello all, especially Steegy,

Thanks for the script. I find it quite useful, but there was this annoying behavior: it would show the title and artist of the first song that had to be rated and it would not update afterwards.

I made some small modifications to the GetForm function (commented all he changes). Here it is - just swap it out with the current 'GetForm' with the help of a text editor to try it.

:P

Code: Select all

Function GetForm
    Set GetForm = SDB.Objects("RatePlayedSong_Form")
' Initialize the two variables here because they will be used in both sides of the conditional
    Dim lblTit
    Dim lblArt

    If GetForm Is Nothing Then
        Dim bheight : bheight = 23
        Dim bwidth : bwidth = 35
        Set GetForm = SDB.UI.NewForm
        GetForm.Common.SetRect 100, 100, 360, 190
        GetForm.BorderStyle  = 3   ' Resizable
        GetForm.FormPosition = 4   ' Screen Center
        GetForm.SavePositionName = "RatePlayedSong_Form"
        GetForm.Caption = "Rate Previously Played Song"
        Set SDB.Objects("RatePlayedSong_Form") = GetForm

        Set lblTit = SDB.UI.NewLabel(GetForm)
        lblTit.Caption = "Title:  " & PreviousSong.Title
        lblTit.Common.Left = 10
        lblTit.Common.Top = 14
' Initialize a new named label object, so we can refer to it later
        Set SDB.Objects("RatePlayedSong_Form_lblTit") = lblTit

        Set lblArt = SDB.UI.NewLabel(GetForm)
        lblArt.Caption = "Artist: " & PreviousSong.ArtistName
        lblArt.Common.Left = 10
        lblArt.Common.Top = lblTit.Common.Top + lblTit.Common.Height +7
' same as above
        Set SDB.Objects("RatePlayedSong_Form_lblArt") = lblArt

        Dim i, btnPcnt
        For i = 0 To 10
            Set btnPcnt = SDB.UI.NewButton(GetForm)
            btnPcnt.Caption = BtnCapt(i)
            btnPcnt.Common.MinHeight = i
            btnPcnt.Common.Height = bheight
            btnPcnt.Common.Width = bwidth
            btnPcnt.Common.Top = lblArt.Common.Top + lblArt.Common.Height + 10 + (i MOD 2)*bheight
            btnPcnt.Common.Left = 50 + i*(bwidth - bwidth/2 + 5)
            Script.RegisterEvent btnPcnt.Common, "OnClick", "RateButton_OnClick"
        Next

        Dim btnOk : Set btnOk = SDB.UI.NewButton(GetForm)
        btnOk.Caption = "OK"
        btnOk.Common.SetRect GetForm.Common.Width/2 - 155, lblArt.Common.Top + lblArt.Common.Height + 10 + 2*bheight + 10 + 5, 150, bheight
        btnOk.Default = True
        btnOk.ModalResult = 1

        Dim btnCancel : Set btnCancel = SDB.UI.NewButton(GetForm)
        btnCancel.Caption = "Cancel Changes"
        btnCancel.Common.SetRect GetForm.Common.Width/2 + 5, BtnOK.Common.Top, 150, bheight
        btnCancel.Cancel = True
        btnCancel.ModalResult = 2
    Else
' this bit is for when the form appears for not the first time
' capture the named label objects in lblTit and lblArt and update their content
        Set lblTit = SDB.Objects("RatePlayedSong_Form_lblTit")

This is a GREAT script for those who rate songs. My problem was that I found myself distracted and not listening to the songs every time. I needed a replay button. So I eliminated the OK button and replaced it with a Replay Song button. Now if you click a rating, the song is rated and the form exits. If you click replay song, the song replays and the form exits.

I could have never done this from scratch, so thank you Steegy and others.

Hi, is it possible to customize this script so that it keeps playing a song until the song gets a rate? I've been tinkering with the script with no luck.
