How to differentiate a query-based autoplaylist and the others

To not pollute the other topic:
https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,62218.msg1046990.html#msg1046990

I want to check if a playlist is an Autoplaylist and also if it has a query associated or not.

This always returns 'Autoplaylist' in both cases.
Code: [Select]
playlist_manager::get()->playlist_lock_query_name(idx, component)

And this always return true.
Code: [Select]
autoplaylist_manager::get()->is_client_present(idx)

As you can see on the images, both are identified as autoplaylist but have different features available. How to do it in SDK?

The implementer of the autoplaylist client... now you... needs to set the name.

In that component source facets_autoplaylist_client.h, it derives from autoplaylist_client

Code: [Select]
class foo_autoplaylist_client : public autoplaylist_client

If you update that to autoplaylist_client_v2, you have to implement these 3 extra methods, one of them doing what you want...

Yep, also noticed it.

The playlist in such case is reused by matching the name, since it is not locked anymore.
