I've never had anything to do with that particular script. Obviously the first thing you need to do is make all the changes necessary for it to work in SMP. If it works in JSP v2.4.0 right now, there is absolutely no way it's going to work without some tweaks. @TheQwertiest has detailed documentation on the changes required...

Hi, this is not working:
Code: [Select]
var objShell = new ActiveXObject('Shell.Application');
objShell.NameSpace(panel.tf('$directory_path(%path%)')).ParseName(panel.tf('%filename_ext%')).ModifyDate = '2018/09/07 15:51';
both panel.tf('$directory_path(%path%)') and panel.tf('%filename_ext%') return a correct value for the file to be changed, but date does not get modified.
If I run the same code, replacing 'panel.tf' values, from WSH, it does work. Any clue? Thanks.

Seems to work fine for me?? Bear in mind that if you have a last modified column in your playlist, it won't update automatically since you're updating the file externally. Running this directly after may help...

Code: [Select]
fb.RunContextCommandWithMetadb("Tagging/Reload info from file(s) if changed", panel.metadb);

Actually it works. The reason my code is not working is because there are three lines just before,
Code: [Select]
var handles = fb.CreateHandleList(panel.metadb);
handles.UpdateFileInfoFromJSON(JSON.stringify(obj));
_.dispose(handles);
And it takes some time to update the file, i guess asynchronously, so when my code is run the file is not available. Is there any way to make sure UpdateFileInfoFromJSON has done its job before I update file modified time?

Thanks for that tip!

Yes it's async but I would expect a single track to get updated pretty much instantly?? You get a progress dialog for longer operations and the component has no way of knowing when it's complete.

Anyway, check File>Preferences>Advanced>Tagging>General>Preserve file creation/access/modification time. That probably bypasses the need to write old timestamps back??

Not really, otherwise my code would have worked. I solved it with a window.setTimeout call.

That could help. Thanks!.

In the sample script "Thumbs", I can search with %artist% in the last fm artist database. I have a lot of classical music and I'm interested in composer pictures. The composers name is stored in my %performer% tag. How can I search in the last fm database with %performer%?

Re: JScript Panel script discussion/help

Reply #832
Open the configuration window and enter this as the first line of the script before var panel...

Code: [Select]
DEFAULT_ARTIST = '$meta(performer,0)';

You could use %performer% if you were sure all tags are single value. Lookups of multi-value tags would not work well.

Hello all, i use JS Smooth Browser to see my new album in my librairie, i would like to have the most recent at the beginning so i add this in the Panel properties "sort order album :  $date(%last_modified%) | %album% | %discnumber% | %tracknumber% | %title% ".
l works fine but my newest albums are at the end of the list ...is it possible to sort the list by descending ?
i try : SORT BY DESCENDING  $date(%last_modified%) but nothing changed.....
thanks for your help.

Re: JScript Panel script discussion/help

You can only use standard title formatting there, not query syntax.

Try

Code: [Select]
$sub(99999999,$replace($date(%last_modified%),-,)) | %album% | ....

Feature request for sample script "playback buttons": add option to center buttons in panel. Thanks.

Replace existing buttons.update function with this...

Code: [Select]
buttons.update = function () {
var x_pos = (panel.w - (bs * 4)) / 2;
this.buttons.stop = new _.button(x_pos, 0, bs, bs, {normal : 'buttons\\stop.png'}, function (x, y, mask) { fb.Stop(); }, 'Stop');
this.buttons.play = new _.button(x_pos + bs, 0, bs, bs, {normal : !fb.IsPlaying || fb.IsPaused ? 'buttons\\play.png' : 'buttons\\pause.png'}, function (x, y, mask) { fb.PlayOrPause(); }, !fb.IsPlaying || fb.IsPaused ? 'Play' : 'Pause');
this.buttons.previous = new _.button(x_pos + (bs * 2), 0, bs, bs, {normal : 'buttons\\previous.png'}, function (x, y, mask) { fb.Prev(); }, 'Previous');
this.buttons.next = new _.button(x_pos + (bs * 3), 0, bs, bs, {normal : 'buttons\\next.png'}, function (x, y, mask) { fb.Next(); }, 'Next');
}

It's nice to see some Coverflow chatter here. Does anyone know how to highlight the cover of the now playing track, only? As opposed to highlighting any cover that's been selected. Thanks!

Re: JScript Panel script discussion/help

Reply #840
Actually, never mind. The Coverflow is buggy and doesn't work properly with JS Smooth playlist. If you click on the Coverflow's album cover, it will not highlight on JSS unless the cover happens to be in view. In other words JSS can't scroll up and down with coverflow. JS Playlist works fine.

I'm using  v1.5.2: Bug Fixes by MordredKLB

EDIT... Actually, it's JSS that's the culprit. Don't know why it started doing this. It wasn't doing this before.

Another EDIT. :) It would seem using 2.5.6 version of JSS causes it to behave this way when 2.6.1 DLL is installed. Problem solved.

The script isn't at fault - the actual component has a bug that needs fixing. I'll look at pushing out a release later on today.

LOL, I'm keeping you busy. Anyway, thanks for verifying that.

How easy/hard is it to fix a line like this (from Darkone) now that "Dispose" doesn't work anymore.

Quote
   this.onMouseOut = function() {
      g_tooltip.Deactivate();
      g_tooltip.Dispose();
   }

Re: JScript Panel script discussion/help

Reply #844
It should be as simple as removing the line of code that contains the .Dispose call.

However, that would imply the script is calling window.CreateTooltip more than once in a panel instance which no longer permitted. If you remove that line and still get errors, post the whole script and I'll tell you how to adjust it.

Re: JScript Panel script discussion/help

Hey, thanks again! There was a domino effect, so the next trouble line was...

Quote
g_tooltip = window.CreateTooltip();

I changed it to...

Quote
g_tooltip = window.Tooltip;

Then I got another error about mousein or something. Anyway, I deleted all these entries and surprisingly (to me) it worked:

Quote
var g_tooltip;

this.tiptext = tiptext;

   this.onMouseIn = function() {
      g_tooltip = window.CreateTooltip();
      g_tooltip.Text = this.tiptext;
      g_tooltip.Activate();
   }

   this.onMouseOut = function() {
      g_tooltip.Deactivate();
      g_tooltip.Dispose();

(Also deleted some mousein/out entries in the main script)


Re: JScript Panel script discussion/help

Reply #846
Well there's no such thing as window.Tooltip. It won't throw errors because window is a global object so you'll end up with an undefined variable meaning you can't do anything with it.

Removing all that code means no tooltips but obviously they're not even close to being required if the button text/icons are clear.
