Additional event handling for the SDB controls

Post by tj_junk » Mon Mar 05, 2007 10:38 am

I would greatly appreciate additional event handling capabilities for the SDB.UI controls. (OnEnter, OnGotFocus, OnSelect, OnLeave, OnLoseFocus, etc)

(see http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... torder=asc)

I would like to be able to add Drives and Folders to an option sheet,
just as the way FileMonitor does it. I'm sure others want this function as well!

Yes, access to a grid widget like this would be very useful to me too! :)

This may already exist, but I'd like to be able to create a playlist node, not just a regular track list node. I have some scripts that create nodes with a randomized list of tracks (RadioFreeMonkey) and these will automatically sort if I've already sorted on something recently.

Anyway...

Some questions:

How is this used?
> ISDBApplication::RegisterIconHandle

When exactly do we need this? When exactly does it return True?
> ISDBApplication::IsRunning

Wouldn't it be better to use an argument array for the parameters, instead of the fixed 3 parameters (similar to the MessageBox parameters)?
> ISDBApplication::Format
> ISDBApplication::LocalizedFormat

I added some comments to Wiki.

Generally speaking yes, but I was afraid that the way used in MessageBox isn't suitable for all cases, e.g. afaik JScript has problems with this kind of syntax.

Sorry in advance if this is an already known wish.

A OnBeforePlay(long, long, int) : bool event (with return value) could be handy.

Raise conditions:
The event would be raised when manually (on user input) or automatically (by normal playing, a script, Auto-DJ, ...) a song is chosen to start playing, but before the actual play instruction (command to the player, and "bolding" of the track's entry) is given.

Event handler parameters:
- long: NP track index of previously playing track (-1 is playback just started)
- long: NP track index of planned-to-play track (track that has been chosen to start playing)
- int: value indicating the way the event was initiated (manually or automatically)

Event handler return value (bool):
- True means continue playing
- False means stop after current song (don't play the planned next song)

Possible uses:
- set the volume prior to starting playback
- see if the song may be played and if not e.g. play the next track in NP
- repeat the same song over and over (e.g. when shuffle is on with several songs in the NP)
- custom "shuffle" script (chose the next song by changing the given method parameter)
- stop playing songs when a specific track is encountered
- "stop after current song"
- play jingles between songs
- add pauses between songs
- ...

Why the need for a return value: False would let the current playback finish (e.g. when prebuffering is on - this event is called before the previous song stopped playing), while SDB.Player.Stop should stop playback in the normal way (e.g. stop playback even if the previous song was still playing, when prebuffering is on).

Why the "the way the event was initiated" is important: a script could choose to disable playing certain songs (when they are automatically chosen), but it would let the player play these songs if they were explicitly chosen by the user (manually)

This is a long text, but I wanted to make my idea clear. I don't even know if this is a possible thing to do, but if it is, it could be interesting.

If possible:

I have many live songs in my library that aren't tagged as live. Anyway to create a script that could analyze a song and determine whether or not it is live? Sounds a bit far-fetched, but I have seen many impressive scripts here and do not doubt the abilities of the coders.

Thank you in advanced.

@steelydan - this thread is for scripters to post their wishes, not for script requests. It's also not possible for a script to know whether a track is live or not.

I would like to see a script which would give me a panel in which the " nfo " file is displayed , i am using MM for audiobooks , the nfo usually gives relevant info about the book.

Cheers ,Lin

Events, events, events. I'm a very spoiled .NET programmer. In .NET there are events for everything conceivable. Many times even events for BeforeX and AfterX also. In writing my 1st MM app, I've found myself in want of such events as: OnClick for the shuffle button, OnClick for the repeat button, OnChanged for now playing tracklist (when items have been moved), OnAdd for now playing tracklist, OnRemove for now playing tracklist. It would also be nice if OnPlay were separated out to when play first occurred vs when it's simply a new track which has started playing.

All that said: I'm a long time MM user and a long time dev'er, but a newcomer to MM dev'ing. Despite a lack of events, I've found the API, the community, and the documentation to be superb, even though I'm doing it in .NET (C#) and it's meant for vb script. Kudos to all who have made this possible. Writing my 1st MM app has been a pleasure and if I find some where to host a zip, I'll be glad to share it with anyone interested when it's complete.

I would like an event which is run when a user "starts" dragging a track from the trackview.

thanks,
Dale.
