(the cut,10 strips the last letters from the string, which is the time
Quote from: ktr on 06 April, 2009, 03:54:00 AM(the cut,10 strips the last letters from the string, which is the timeThis works, but there are functions to make this easier: $date(%last_modified%)
i use "$cut(%last_modified%,10)" to sort my files after the day, lastmodified and creation date should be mostly the same, at least its here
(file-creation filename) => returns the file creation in seconds...(file-last-access filename) => see file-creation (file-last-write filename) => see file-creation
posting request in playlist tree (mod) thread hopefully will result positive
I highly need the %file_created% field too.
Add me to the list.Being able to search/sort and show creation date would be useful indeed.
Ack. Add me to the list of people affected by the lack of this variable. I think I'm going to have to resort to using Windows Explorer's search parameters to dig up the selection of files created within the time period I want and plop them from there into my playlist. I rarely use this Windows featureset, but it should be fairly simple. If this ends up being a non-trivial task, I'll try to remember to find time to post a follow-up with a how-to.Do note that no list of potential workarounds should negate the fact that the lack of existence of such a variable (particularly considering that %last_modified% /does/ exist) is a nuisance for some of us.
^as you're updating your files regularly, perhaps you wouldn't mind adding your own custom date created tag? mp3tag can write this by using it's own %_file_create_datetime% field.
