Add text box to Dialog

I'm fairly new to MediaMonkey scripting. In my script I open a dialog and want to ask the user for some text input then use that text later on in the script. I have no idea how to create a TextBox (it need not be a RichTextBox) nor how to use its content (after testing to make sure that it is not em...

Re: Resetting the "Last Played" Column

It is also possible to do this by selecting the files you wish to change. Right-click to expose the context menu. The very last item, "Properties" opens a generic properties dialog which gives access to all the common items of the files selected. On the second tab (Details) of this dialog, toward th...

Change away from FreeDB

I'm using what I think is the most current beta (4.1.29.1910). Part of the recent changes have been to move away from FreeDB. However, ripping a recent CD which was not found in the database pops up an error dialog (appropriately) but it says that it “could not find the album in FreeDB” when I am as...

Problem with a script: ExternalTools.VBS

I wanted to change an option (Library> Tags & Playlists> "Update tags when editing properties" checkbox). It was checked and I wanted to remove the check. I did so then clicked on the "OK" button and got this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/601xompc2v46s7s/ExternalTools.png?dl=0 (just in case you can't s...

Re: MM won't recognize CD drive if it's letter is "B"

Thanks for the almost immediate reply! That was enough information to resolve my problem. However… Files are located on drive A or B and MediaMonkey isn't able to access them. To fix this remove the drive letter from IgnoreDriveLetters=AB in MediaMonkey.ini. For the location of MediaMonkey.ini see: ...

MM won't recognize CD drive if it's letter is "B"

Given that Windows only allows for 26 drive letters (A-Z, and I'm using them all) and with the understanding that "A" & "B" are traditionally reserved for "floppy drives" and might be ignored by Windows search indexing database (although this does not appear to be the case on Windows 10)… I have cho...

Keyboard shortcut to "Close Tab"

… And in general, the ability to assign keyboard shortcuts to most, if not all, menu (including context menus) items and GUI controls (buttons, sliders etc.). A little more ability in the keyboard shortcut editor: the ability to list all the commands/controls which contain a specified word (see the ...

Re: create Playlist using a script

Obviously, my example could be easily accomplished using the Advanced Search function; I only proposed it as a simple example. I'm more interested in the general case of searching the Library database and finding all Artists whose name is a single letter (and/or a single word) then adding that entry...

create Playlist using a script

I would like to create a script which searches the entire library looking for entries (e.g. Artist is a single word/letter) which match some criteria and add them to a (acceptably: already existing) Playlist for manual examination. As a simple example, search the entire Library for every entry whose...
