Disable right panel?

Post by Robbieboy65 »

Hi everyone, I upgraded to MM 5 just recently and I'm enjoying it very much, despite a few differences to get used to.

One difference I have encountered occurs when I am creating playlists: the right panel pops up when I am creating playlists, as well as when I am making a 'child' playlist from a 'parent' one. As I don't particularly want this right panel appearing when creating playlists, I am just wondering if there is a setting available that will disable the right panel. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

There actually is addon for this, just copy /sampleScripts/sendToPlaylistInBackground/ to /scripts/sendToPlaylistInBackground/ and it should do the trick.

EDIT: Sorry, this probably works only when sending tracks to existing playlist, not when creating new playlist, the addon would need to be tweaked a little.

Namely editing its actions_add.js and replace the current code

Code: Select all

(() => {
    if (!window.uitools._origShowPlaylistEditor)
        window.uitools._origShowPlaylistEditor = window.uitools.showPlaylistEditor;

    window.uitools.showPlaylistEditor = function (plst, isNew, origin) {
        if (!plst.isAutoPlaylist && window.uitools.getCanEdit()) {
            if (origin == 'sendToMenu' && !isNew) {
                //if called from sent to menu then do not show the editor and just show a toast message that an operation was performed in the background.
                //	Cannot include "Undo", because the actual playlist editing operation is done elsewhere in the code
                uitools.toastMessage.show('Playlist edited in the background.', {
                    disableUndo: true,
                    disableClose: true,
                    delay: 3000
                });
            } else {
                window.uitools._origShowPlaylistEditor.apply(this, arguments);
            }
        }
    }
})();
just by:

Code: Select all

    window.uitools.showPlaylistEditor = function (plst, isNew, origin) {
	// nothing
    }    
This will silent the showPlaylistEditor funtion and the panel won't be shown anymore.

Thanks for your time and trouble, Ludek. I’m afraid that this is well beyond my level of knowledge and I don’t have a clue how to do this. Is it possible to simplify this into short, simple steps? Again, thanks for your assistance.

Installing this addon will do the trick: https://www.dropbox.com/s/lfcfiya1zo86y ... .mmip?dl=0

Thank you, Ludek. I downloaded this addon and saved it to my desktop (as a .mmip file). I tried double-clicking it on the desktop and I also tried to add it via tools> addons. Both times I got the same error message:

"Invalid addon! Error reading zip file"

Could you please let me know where I am going wrong with this?

Many thanks.

Does the file have a .zip extension? If so change it to a .mmip extension: https://www.mediamonkey.com/support/kno ... ns-addons/

Hi,
Looks like it is not ZIP, but RAR file it can happen occasionally :)

Try this one disablePlaylistPanel.mmip
