    PLAYLIST DELETE FILE question from popup?

    Guys -

    I've searched all over the forums on this, and see various solutions but none seem to work for me. I am not concerned about deleting MP3's, just M3U playlists I may create on the fly and no longer need ...

    I have a POPUP skin that launches via the MENU;Plist.skin... with a list of my playlists and works great, it has the following text which I was assisted with:

    MEDIACAR Skin
    MEDIACAR AlpineOSK Skin
    PList_Empty.jpg,PList_Off.jpg,PList_On.jpg,PList_D own.jpg

    /, SD, Alignment;Alignment, Disp;MODE, Icon Width, Icon Heigth, Path
    SD,oo,"00",,,"C:\Documents and Settings\ckolibab\Desktop\AllOfMP3-NEW\PLAYLISTS"

    So now I want to simply have an option to delete a file. I assumed DELETEFILE would work, but launches the CONFIRM dialouge but never actually deletes the file.

    Should this work? Do I need to somehow embed the path in the delete command as perhaps its trying to delete that file but excluding the path so does nothing?

    Any hints or syntax - MUCH appreciated!!!!

    Thanks to all...

    This should work indeed, the question is what do you have in your comfirm skin ? (I'm also assumming you're using a folder list to display the playlists).

    Guino -

    This is the tricky spot, I have this working but if I do it from a typical navigation in which I audiobrowse to my playlist folder - and then it works, confirm and all.

    What I've done is created a PopUp with the syntax and skin above - and from that menu is where I am trying to perform the deletefile. I could only assume perhaps it's not including all of the path so tries to delete something that does not exist....

    So the steps are:

    1 - I bring up a small PLIST skin as a popup via. MENU; .... with the following
    /, SD, Alignment;Alignment, Disp;MODE, Icon Width, Icon Heigth, Path
    SD,oo,"00",,,"C:\Documents and Settings\ckolibab\Desktop\AllOfMP3-NEW\PLAYLISTS"

    2 - Now on the PLIST skin I have a button to perform the DELETEFILE, and will not work - confirm comes up but the file is not deleted. Is it not grabbing the path data?

    3 - If I use the same process in audio browser - I can indeed do this, and could live with it...

    4 - BONUS QUESTION :-) Can u toss my some syntax on the location of that popup skin, I am searching and working with the PINK screens also but believe u made it so we could use X/Y coords to place MENU; ... skins on loads.

    Thanks sir!!!!

    Try using the load command instead of menu -- use /POSX=XXX and /POSY=XXX to position the screnn if necessary.. or the scaling options .. it's likely that it isnt working because you're using the menu command for your playlist popup..

    Popup Positioning ....

    Well I like crazy before I post - or try my best ;-)

    Found it:
    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/show...osx#post918342

    And yes indeed works for me like a CHAMP. Basic Syntax is ...

    MEDIACAR Skin
    MEDIACAR AlpineOSK Skin
    numosk_on.jpg,numosk_Off.jpg,numosk_Off.jpg,numosk _Off.jpg

    /POSX=020
    /POSY=020

    I will be wearing this out.... I love popups as they can minimize skin clutter - but see some challenges with some of my stuff...

    Thanks to all..

    I do my DELETE SONG directly from the Audio_Palyer skin. In the list I have an Icon when clicked brings up the popup. You click Delete and the file is deleted or moved to a specific folder just in case you hit delete by accident.
    After deletion the popup closes and the playlist shows the song removed and continues to play the next song in the list. No extra skin needed, just the popup and it works like a charm. here are two shots.

    MGD,

    Here is the difference - that scenario works for me as well, golden. What this looks like is a small POPUP menu that has the Playlists you can choose from, but if you wanted to delete one it would delete it there as well from the list. So the difference is this is from a menu; skin ... Guino looked at this too and we thought that was the issue maybe - I think the deletfile is not seeing all of the path info -- but it's odd because it plays just fine from there......

    Could be an easy test if you like - the syntax for the skin is above. I am going to look at it again but if not will workaround via the same method you illustrate.

    This to me was a nice easy way to just clean up a playlist popup - but not major..

    Well, the differents is that I don't use the deletefile command from RR. I use an AutoIt script and a WinAmp plugin. So Ican run that script from any window any menu or any skin I am in.
