extend/customize right-click tray icon

Post by shawn » Thu Jul 09, 2009 7:26 pm

I'm on the hunt for any script that will...

(1) - allow me to extend/customize the context menu that appears when the MM system tray icon is right-clicked.
this would be amazing, but I understand I'm aiming rather high


(2) - add the Send to... functionality to said menu.
this is essentially all that I need

Basically, I find that I spend a lot of time listening to to tracks with MM in Mini Player mode, and rather than restore MM to full view each time I want to add the Now Playing track to a playlist, it would be great if I were able to do this directly from the system tray icon.

I'm going off on a bit of a daydreaming tangent here, but I would be just as content with a script that accomplished the same via the Mini Player's right-click menu as well.

Anybody have any suggestions? :)

I don't know if all the "Send to..." functionality can be replicated (because I've not looked at what all the options are!) but you can definitely add items to the tray menu via scripting so that's a start! :)
