Thanks for the JSON string, and for the general advice re debugging COM calls.

I can now get going with some confidence.

Code: Select all

SDB.runJSCode("(function() { app.getIniFile().then(function(iniFileAccess) { runJSCode_callback(iniFileAccess.getStringValue('System','DBName'))   }); }); ()", True)
I would not have predicted that reading a value from an ini file would have been implemented as an async function ... nothing wrong with that of course, but in many cases one wouldn't want a program starting too much until the ini file had been validated.

Is there any way to predict, from the documentation, which calls have been implemented as async?

Typically almost all methods returning any list with data is async and you need call whenLoaded before use.

Code: Select all

app.player.getSongList().getTracklist().whenLoaded().then(function(list) { ... fully loaded list can be used here });
