filename sorting

Post by aabra1 » Tue Aug 16, 2011 4:29 pm

is there a way to sort SDB.AllVisibleSongList by file name and /or file path?

I need to have all the tracks listed in filename order ascending before I process the list.
I have to order them now by clicking on Filename header and then running the script I wrote.
Would be nice to automate filename sorting too.

I gess you could assign SDB.AllVisibleSongList to a temp object and use a SQL command to sort it.

See code samples here: ... _Method(s)

Skins for MediaMonkey: Cafe, Carbon, Helium, Spotify, Zekton. [ Wiki Zone ].

I figures it out and sorted by file path:

Set list = SDB.AllVisibleSongList
' sort the list
Set objSortedList = CreateObject( "System.Collections.Sortedlist" )
For i=0 To list.count-1
Set itm = list.Item(i)
'MsgBox TypeName(itm) 'SDBSongData
objSortedList.add itm.Path, itm

' Process all selected tracks
For i=0 To objSortedList.count-1
Set itm = objSortedList.GetByIndex(i)
number = number + 1
