How do i access the Cover ?

Code: Select all

With SDB.Player.CurrentSong
        .Covers = GetImageFromClipboard
End With
.Covers = GetImageFromClipboard //// .Covers is wrong here.. any idea what it should be?

I'm trying to write the current image on the clipboard to the song's album art

Umm.. another help..
SDBAlbumArtItem does not allow to set an Image property..

Any idea how to add an art to the AlbumArt tag?

I would rather not create an image at the temp location and then add it via PicturePath, as far as possible ie.

I think you need to have a physical file, unfortunately. Personally I've found this method best...

Code: Select all

Set img = itm.AlbumArt.AddNew            
img.RelativePicturePath = relpath(newpath,itm.Path)
img.ItemType = 3
img.ItemStorage = 0
Where "relpath" is...

Code: Select all

Function relpath(relp,path)
  relpath = relp
  Dim temp : temp = Left(path,InStrRev(path,"\"))
  'check same folder
  If InStr(relp,temp) = 1 Then
    relpath = Mid(relp,Len(temp)+1)
    Exit Function
  End If
  'check parent folders
  If Left(temp,2) = "\\" Then
    temp = Mid(temp,3)
  End If
  If Left(relp,2) = "\\" Then
    relp = Mid(relp,3)
  End If
  Dim tp : tp = Left(temp,InStr(temp,"\"))
  Dim tr : tr = Left(relp,InStr(relp,"\"))
  If (UCase(tp) = UCase(tr)) Then
    While (UCase(tp) = UCase(tr))
      temp = Mid(temp,Len(tp)+1)
      relp = Mid(relp,Len(tr)+1)
      tp = Left(temp,InStr(temp,"\"))
      tr = Left(relp,InStr(relp,"\"))
    relpath = ""
    While (InStr(temp,"\") > 0)
      relpath = relpath&"..\"
      temp = Mid(temp,Len(tp)+1)
      tp = Left(temp,InStr(temp,"\"))
    relpath = relpath&relp
  End If
End Function

thank u so much..

i'd give it a go..
Basically modifying WebSearch Panels script to add more buttons other than the default Lyrics & Comment button.

Thinking of adding a button for as many Tags as possible. Have all of them working (with the clean up text) except for the AlbumArt part.

Hope jn does not mind

Sounds like a good idea - I'm sure he won't mind as long as you mention the fact that it's a modification of his script. Maybe send him a PM first to see what he thinks. :)
