Genre Shortcut Keys

Post by Magic 8 Ball » Tue May 17, 2005 10:00 am

Hey, I have no knowledge of scripting at all. But im a pretty good learner. But I would love if there was a scrpt or code so that I could use my Numeric Keypad, to set the Genre. Kinda like this.

#1 = Rock
#2 = Rap
#3 = Dance
#4 = Country
#5 = Reggae
#6 = Hip-Hop
#7 = Alternative
#8 = Comedy
#9 = Sountrack

It would be nice if all I had to do is press one of those numbers on my Numeric Keypad, but it would be ok if I had to press <ctrl><1> to do it also. As long as it works. And I cant use the numbers on top of the keyboard because I already have a script that Im using for those.

Any advice on how to make the scrpit and how to learn how to make scripts? Or even better, anyone out there that would like to make it out there for me, in return I will give you a very big THANK YOU.
PEACE, LOVE, AND HAPPINESS.
And sometimes war.

See MMs developers page. You will find all relevant informations needed for scripting.

The Script should be easy to make only few lines ot Code.

If you need help do not hasiate to ask.

Im still hopeless, there arent any real good tutorials on how to make scripts, I am completly clueless of scripts. I have naever programmed or scrpited ever. Im pretty good with HTML, but all this other stuff is really new. Are there any other places I can look to find out how to make this kind of script?

So, if I understand correctly, you want to assign the genre associated to the shortcut to the currently selected track(s)?

I'll try to help you out with some code when I have a little time.

That is right on the money. I cant thank you enough for doing this. your guys are very nice and helpfull people, please stay that way. Oh and if you are actually going to make this script for me, pretty please assign these keys, to these genres.

#1 = Rock
#2 = Rap
#3 = Dance
#4 = Country
#5 = Reggae
#6 = Hip-Hop
#7 = Alternative
#8 = Comedy
#9 = Sountrack

I wish I could give you something in return, but I really cant. Thank you so so so much.

Ok, here it is :D,
Save this to Mediamonkey/Scripts/Auto Folder Name it "Predefined Genre.vbs"

Code: Select all

 Updated Code is sent in newer Posts
Edit "Str_Genre? =" Lines for your needs.

Restart MM and enjoy. You'll find "Change Genre" under Edit Menu.

Wait, is there any way for me to change the numbers to my Numeric Keypad numbers, cause now I cant rate my songs by using the ctrl+alt+1 ect.. keys. But great script.

Great :)
Is it possible to modify this script to be able to rate the songs by Hatkeys?

Xman, open the script in your text editor of choice and do a find/replace with "genre"/"rating". Then, replace the genre names with the rating (1-100) you want to assign to that key. This also works for Year and probably any other parameter in the library.

Kudos for a great script making MM even easier to use.

Hi folks,

I rewrote the script regarding rating for my own needs. It only allows for the full stars, but can easily be adjusted to also support half stars and 'unrated'.

Here it is for whoever might find it useful:

Code: Select all

 ... see below ...
