Button to add currently playing to playlist

Post by Dood » Sun Jun 28, 2020 1:30 pm

I searched the forum but couldn't find a solution.

What I want is a button (on tool bar or player, doesn't matter) that when clicked will add the currently playing song to playlist "xxx".

Is there a way to accomplish this?

The Context Toolbar has Send To to accomplish this. There also is right click, Send To > Playlist as well as the ability to Drag & Drop files on the Playlist node in the Media Tree or another tab with the Playlist open.

Sorry Lowlander, but I want to add another method.

Hello Dood,

You can also create a new toolbar and use it to apply the most common buttons.

Thanks for the help guys!

I didn't realize you could just do drag & drop.
The toolbar suggestion is close, but it still requires me to select a playlist.
I was hoping to create a one-click "send now playing to playlist xxx" solution if possible.

I'm not opposed to scripting either if it comes to that.
I have programming experience, but none with MM scripts.

I'd assume that this could be scripted: http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.php/Scripting

The advantage is recognizable.

OR Drag&Drop

but it still requires me to select a playlist.
Yes, of course, how else should the program recognize what you want?
I'm really looking forward to your program solution!

Of course the one-click solution could be scripted. In fact, it was already scripted, you just need to search better. :wink: For example, you could look at my signature. The last add-on in the list.

Hello Zvezdan,
thanks for the tip. But who reads all entries in all signatures?
Well, I have tested several times and come to the conclusion: I will stick to my TWO-CLICK method (habit).
Best regards

Hallo Zvezdan,
danke für den Tipp. Aber wer liest schon alle Einträge in allen Signatur?
Gut, ich habe mehrfach getestet und komme zu dem Schluß: ich bleibe bei meiner ZWEI-KLICK-Methode (Gewohnheit).
Schöne Grüße
