Why when changing many PATH fields, in other words,
Why when renaming filenames the status bar says X track(s) to be tagged?

Is it really retagging or just uses the same language as fields that are in the tag?

This is a MediaMonkey information which is automatically displayed. I am not sure, but I suppose MM shows it whenever some tags is written to file.

Hello. I'm new to all this, really like the possibilities in this plugin/script, wondering how a code would look if i wanted:
- to search trough comments and find any numbers behind " - ", remove the spaces and copy the numbers to another tag while leaving everything in front of " - " as it is (ex. Comment is: "9A/8B - 143" -> Comment: "9A/8B" BPM: "143")
- to search comment for any single digit number followed by a letter and replace it with a 2-digit number (ex. 9A/8B -> 09A/08B)

Or maybe it would be possible to use a code that does both of these in one operation?

I am still not very comfortable with Regular Expressions, but I wanted to share some helpful resources to learn them:

Sams Teach Yourself Regular Expressions in 10 Minutes (awesome book!)
Regular expressions tutorial

Here is a library of existing regular expressions.

Two useful "testing tools" here and here.

And finally here is a software that will automatically generate regular expressions based on text you specify.
Fully functional 30-day trial demo is free, the software costs $40.

Hope these will prove useful! :D

PS: Another suggestion, how about a webpage (or even just a dedicated thread in this forum) for users to share their mediamonkey-specific regular expressions, in addition to the bundled presets that ZvezdanD kindly includes with his script?

Change Folder Path Case

When changing only the case for folders they stay the same,
Consider adding something like this to future updates

After

Code: Select all

 Execute ("oSongData." & sSongData & " = " & sAfter)
Add

Code: Select all

If sSongData = "Path" Then 
	Set oFileSys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
	sFolder = Left(sAfter, InStrRev(sAfter, "\") - 1)
	If Not sFolder = oFileSys.GetFolder(sFolder).Path Then
		sFolder = Split(sFolder,"\")
		Dim A
		For A = Ubound(sFolder) To 1 Step -1
			If Not sFolder(A) = oFileSys.GetFolder(Join(sFolder,"\")).Name Then Call oFileSys.MoveFolder(Join(sFolder,"\"),Join(sFolder,"\"))
			On Error Resume Next
			Err.Clear
			ReDim Preserve sFolder(A - 1)
		Next
		'oSongData.path = oFileSys.GetFile(oSongData.path)
	End If
End If
By the way
When is 3.7 comming?

You need to start up MM as admin:
1. Close MM
2. Right click MM icon -> Run as administrator
3. Install plugin

ok..One more question. I installed the 101 presets and have been using the copy feat. artists from Title to Artist and then remove feat. Artist from Title. Is there a way to make it do both back to back without having to do them both manually? Or make another preset to Move the feat. Artist so that it would be all in one step? Thanks again. Love this script and MM!

The script only writes to one field at a time.

You could give the two presets icons & create toolbar buttons. So you can run them quickly one after the other.

Previewing or Replacing?

What is the best way for a VBScript expression to detect if the script is generating a preview or is replacing the data?

M reo complex "Swap the first and the last name" script soug

First, thanks a lot for the RegExp Find & Replace script.

I used to be an avid user of Mp3Tag, but, sorry for them, I completely switched over. I'm an old (Unix ed(!)/vi/etc) RegExp. hacker, but still have to learn VB scripting.

What I'm looking for is a preset that swaps the first and last name of multiple artists. Of course I could run the preset multiple times.

Original could be: Ewa Podles (c.alto), Raphaëlle Farman (sopr.), Marie-Noëlle de Callataÿ (sopr.), Collegium Instrumentale Brugensis, Capella Brugensis; Patrick Peire (dir.)

Replacemetn should be: Podles, Ewa (c.alto); Farman, Raphaëlle (sopr.); Callataÿ, Marie-Noëlle de (sopr.); Collegium Instrumentale Brugensis; Capella Brugensis; Peire, Patrick (dir.)

All the first and last names are swa[[ed. ,'s switched to ;'s. Notice Collegium Instrumentale Brugensis gets skipped.

I know it is (very) complex. Possibly it needs more presets. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Is there a way to limit the length of the “file name” to a certain number of chars, say 29 including the .mp3 extension? The reason for this request is that on the GM autos with mp3 capable players, NAV and 6 disk players, there is a limit of 32 chars.
If one goes over this limit when burning a mp3 CD the player gets confused and doesn’t play correctly. The system uses the old ISO and ver 1 mp3 ID tag info format to show title ect on the display.
