[MM4] Open song properties dialog from script

Post by Telco » Sun Jul 20, 2014 6:12 am

Hi,

I have written a script to quickly adjust the metadata on large quantities of new songs. I am a bit stuck though on the artwork that may be included/embedded in the MP3 files. I would like to find a way to open the song properties dialog with the artwork tab selected. Preferably, I would even 'pre-press' the search button too.

Is it possible to do this from a script or is there a better way of doing this? I have looked for several other artwork scripts, but I would really like to cut back the number of clicks involved, so none of the existing ones really cut it for me.

Thanks!

I don't think there's a way of opening dialog and changing tabs, other than using SendKeys, but I'd have thought this would be a little flaky.
Download my scripts at my own MediaMonkey fansite.

Though I feared as much, I hoped otherwise. Thanks for clarifying this. I will check out and try the SendKeys, thank you for the suggestion!

I'm not sure what you want to do with Artwork?
