Easy/fast nested nodes & FilesToEdit hiding (09Nov08)

Post by sbondi » Sun Jan 13, 2008 7:05 pm

UPDATED 09-Jan-2011

I have not updated this script in over 2 years, and it seems like it does not work well with the latest versions of MediaMonkey. Thus, I am removing all download links.

This is fantasic, now I do not have to wade through files to edit nodes which I do not use and I can minimize some of my MNs. Thank you!!

This is a very cool script, it allows me the ability to add nodes in an organizational manner which I love and the enhancements keep getting better an better. This in conjunction with Magic Nodes makes my Monkey an awesome Audio program. Here is an example what I've been using your script for, I have a few more in the "Edits" section but since I do not have any tracks with the search criteria they are being hidden.

Keep up the good work. :P

Does this script have the capability to add say, an Unknown Lyrics node to Files to Edit, among other things?

And nynaevelan, how did you get Files to Edit shortened to Edits? I'd very much like to change the names on many of my nodes but haven't found a way to do that. What script/plugin are you running that allows you to do that, if any?

Thanks!

Yes, you can create your own parent nodes, and then put custom nodes under them. Or, you can put your own custom nodes (like "Unknown Lyrics") under the existing "Files to Edit" node. You can also hide any existing FileToEdit subnodes, add your own under "FilesToEdit", and have "FilesToEdit" open as expanded at Startup (if you want). It is really easy with the .ini file. Check out the sample .ini file to get a feel about how you can hide existing FilesToEdit nodes, create new custom parent nodes, add custom nodes to your parents, add custom nodes to FilesToEdit, always expand any desired nodes at Startup, and include caption counts in nodes (like "Unknown Lyrics") which can hide themselves when no tracks meet their criteria.

Let me know if you have any questions in configuring it to your needs.

Also, nynaevelan did not display FilesToEdit in that particular screen shot. "Edits" is a custom parent that she created herself.

Thanks for the reply. Sounds very cool. Going to try it out in the morning when my brain is fresh. :)

nynaevelan, can you post up your "ini" file? I like what you did and want to see how you did it. I understand a little on how to build and customize the ini file, but I think that if I saw yours, I would get a better handle on it.

Thanks in advance.

Also, here is what my custom Files To Edit Node looks like, I have hidden all the features which I do not use. I use Bex's Tagging Inconsistensies Script for most of my editing needs.

Just installed this with the default .ini and I can already see how powerful it is. I can't wait to dig in and customize it to my taste. Thanks so much! :)

That is great to hear :D

FYI, I just uploaded a new version to the link above that supports a whole lot more icon types and includes a new "easyCriteria" feature to help with pre-defined SQLite criteria. You can get a good idea how it is used, since the new default .INI file uses "easyCriteria" instead of "trackCriteria" for most custom nodes.

Question: Is there a way to exclude items from a criteria?

For example, the Fix 'Artists' node looks for artists with / in the name. This inevitably brings AC/DC and DJ /rupture although it's not necessary to fix those artists. The slashes are part of the name.

I store them as "AC-DC", so I have no "Artists" with / in them, and thus, if there are any that pop up, this was from an old convention that slipped in from FreeDB or someplace instead of the correct ";" convention.

In any case, that is just the way I do it. What would you define as your problem criteria? If it is no / with a space on each side, then the "trackCriteria" would be:

"(Artist = '') OR (Artist LIKE '% / %') OR (Artist LIKE '% %')"

Notice the space on each side of the /.

Or if you like the original criteria and just want to exclude those 2 exceptions:

"(Artist = '') OR ((Artist LIKE '%/%') AND (Artist <> 'AC/DC') AND (Artist <> 'DJ /rupture')) OR (Artist LIKE '% %')"
