I need a syntax that shows the total time for a given playlist.
I know the "Properties" panel conveys this information, but I need this syntax to put it in a column of Playlist View or Text Display.
I tried several formulas, but I couldn't get the desired result. If anyone can help me, I am very grateful!
Normal title formatting is evaluated on a per track basis so calculating a total for a whole playlist worth of items is not possible.
You might consider add a playlist manager panel to your layout and then enabling the duration column like this...
That's what I feared...
But thanks for definitively clarifying my question!
The status bar (at least for CUI) shows the total length of the selection for the active playlist.
Double clicking selects the entire playlist and thus shows the total duration. Not exactly what you want, but at least you don't need an additional panel and it only takes a bit of space at bottom.
I use DUI. Thanks for the info!
Status bar in DUI can show duration of selected files too. Useful feature for me, I like to check duration of albums.
I like to check duration of albums.
Some 3rd party playlist viewers offer support for group length in the headers. Off the top of my head...
ELplaylst (CUI only)
SimPlaylist (DUI only)
I use SimPlaylist and didn't know it. Thanks for the tip!
