  • SKIPTO Not working correctly with Custom Lists

    When you have a hidden value, and a displayed text field, the SKIPTO is working on the hidden Description, and not on the the viewable text.

    The SKIPTO works fine, if you are just using one field to create the custom list, the problem happens when you use the "Text" AND the "Description Value".

    For instance, you are viewing list of MP3 folders in your root MP3 directory. All of the paths begin with the drive letter, H in my case (H:\MP3). When I try the SKIPTO "L" for instance, the list does not move. However if I press "H" (My drive path) it will go to the top of the custom list. As it should, as "H" is the first letter for the command text in the custom list.

    I hope this makes sense Its kind of hard to explain.

    The issue here is that this command is only useful for "sorted" information. If you start placing things at random order in there, it won't work even if I make it work with the description.

        Maybe some flexibility of the skipto cmd. ie..."SKIPTO;k;TEXT" or "SKIPTO;k;DESC", so this would make the cmd syntax:
        SKIPTO;<letter>;<section of list to apply to>

        Just puttin my thoughts out on this...

                Hey guino, I KNOW that you are a VERY busy man, just checking if you had a chance to look into this at all...

                No rush by any means..

                  If you're already looking at the code for this command : Could you also add SKIPTOPREV and SKIPTONEXT ?

                    This can be done currently with use of using RR code..

                    Here is what you want, with full roll around scrolling supported ...

                    Add this to your rr.ini file

                    LTRNUM=0

                    In your skin folder's Exectbl.ini file or RR's folder Exectbl.ini file add the following...
                    Code:
                    "SKIPTOPREV","EVAL;LTRNUM;$LTRNUM$-1||MYSKIPTO"
                    "SKIPTONEXT","EVAL;LTRNUM;$LTRNUM$+1||MYSKIPTO"
                    "MYSKIPTO","BYVAR;LTRNUM;MYSKIPTOSTART<<SKIPTO;A<<SKIPTO;B<<SKIPTO;C<<SKIPTO;D<<SKIPTO;E<<SKIPTO;F<<SKIPTO;G<<SKIPTO;H<<SKIPTO;I<<SKIPTO;J<<SKIPTO;K<<SKIPTO;L<<SKIPTO;M<<SKIPTO;N<<SKIPTO;O<<SKIPTO;P<<SKIPTO;Q<<SKIPTO;R<<SKIPTO;S<<SKIPTO;T<<SKIPTO;U<<SKIPTO;V<<SKIPTO;W<<SKIPTO;X<<SKIPTO;Y<<SKIPTO;Z<<MYSKIPTOEND"
                    "MYSKIPTOEND","SETVAR;LTRNUM;1||GOTOFIRST||MYSKIPTO"
                    "MYSKIPTOSTART","SETVAR;LTRNUM;26||GOTOLAST||MYSKIPTO"
                    Now just use your "SKIPTONEXT" or "SKIPTOPREV" cmds like stated above

                    And as always...ENJOY!!

                        Thanks for your help, really, but I don't this this will work correctly because of two problems:

                        1. It doesn't check the actual letter you're at.
                        I'll try an example:
                        I'm at letter A. If I execute SKIPNEXT it will increase the VAR LTRNUM and jump to letter B. So far, so fine. But if I now manually scroll down to another letter, say O, and I execute SKIPNEXT, it won't jump to letter P, but instead to letter C.

                        2. Also, I don't know what happens when you have no songs with the letter C in the list. I guess RR does nothing then, right ?
                        Of course SKIPNEXT should jump to ne next letter in the alphabet, which also EXISISTS in the playlist. So if there's no letter C in the list, RR should jump directly to letter D.

                        I wrote a little program in AutoIt, but it's working too slow. But again, I think this can be added really easy by guino, when he's already looking at the SKIPTO command.
                        If he finds to time to look at it, that is. No rush ...
