Thanks! There is a new release: v1.1.1 - 2010-05-09Aff wrote:There is a small bug coming up in line 85 misspelled variable "oniFile".
I need to repeat something to prevent further confusion - this script has two main parts, the first one which find the folder in the tree panel that contains the currently playing track and the second part which find that track in the main tracklist. So, if you mean about the first part, i.e. if you want to find specific folder with the currently playing track within the Magic Nodes' node, it is not possible. Well, it would be possible, but it could last forever since this script should traverse to all sub-folders of the Magic Nodes' node and to check if playing track is contained into its tracklist. Same thing is with many other nodes which content is ambiguous, e.g. Library, Classification, Files to Edit, Playlists... I explained that before on the example with the Library node. Finding containing folder inside of the Location or My Computer nodes is possible only because there is unique way for that by parsing of the Path of the playing track.Brouwerik wrote:1. An option to select in which node (MagicNodes included) a song must be located.
The MM program already has a possibility to define hotkey to jump to the currently playing track inside of the selected (current) node. However, if you want manually to find folder which contains currently playing track within Location or My Computer nodes (and to find that track in the tracklist), you could use this add-on and the button on the Shortcut toolbar "Toggle finding of currently playing track" - just click it twice (turn it on, then turn it off).Brouwerik wrote:2.

Have you tried the "Focus tracklist on currently playing item" hotkey (Tools / Options / General / Hotkeys)? You could also try that with this add-on - just click twice on its toolbar button ("Toggle finding of currently playing track").Caruso wrote:Any function that selects the currently playing album (possible so far) AND scrolls it up/ down the visible sceen.
Thanks for these hints, but nothing happens in both cases.Have you tried the "Focus tracklist on currently playing item" hotkey (Tools / Options / General / Hotkeys)? You could also try that with this add-on - just click twice on its toolbar button ("Toggle finding of currently playing track").
Well, with this add-on it happens something at least - the album is actually selected, but it is not scrolled into the view, so you could press the Up key and immediately after that the Down key and you would get displayed the played album. This is a bug of the MM program itself, reported here: http://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=5970, but it is resolved in the current 4.0 version.Caruso wrote:Thanks for these hints, but nothing happens in both cases.
Thanks for the report, although I cannot believe that you are getting the unresponsive program for 60 seconds every time when the song changes, even with 100k Library. Anyway, I have modified it a little bit and I hope that it would be better now: v1.1.3 - 2011-06-15eric.stephani wrote:I just tried this addon and it kind of works, but is unusable for for very large collections, like 100k songs. Every time the song changes it will lock up the whole program for about 60 seconds.
