    Sirius "special" "I-like-this-song" button ?

    A while ago I came across a thread talking about a button in a Sirius.skin that when pressed would write the name of the song and the artist being played in a text file.

    Now that I finally got my alp1 + adapter I can not find it anywhere.
    (I've been searching in all the forums for the last hour!!!! )

    Anybody knows what thread it was or remember what needs to be done to achieve this?

    Cheers

    I have a button like that in my Blue Devil skin.

    Here is the button code I am using on the "Save Song" button:
    Code:
    "SETVARBYCODE;VAR1;TAGARTIST||SETVARBYCODE;VAR2;TRACKNAME||ADDTOFILE;C:\SongsToGet.txt;=$VAR1$ - $VAR2$"
    Front End of Choice: Ride Runner (Is there anything else??? ) & Powered by the DFX5.1 Skin Available in the Mobile App Mart

    Saving the Song Name with Satellite Radio

    I forgot, I wanted a confirmation for when the song was saved. I added this to the new skin I am working on, and never added it to the Blue Devil skin.

    The following code will save the song, as the code in the 2nd post, but will also display a confirmation pop-up showing that the song was actually saved. The pop-up displays for 2 seconds (Can be changed in the foillowing code) and then disappears.

    Here is the code for the button:

    Code:
    "SETVARBYCODE;VAR1;TAGARTIST||SETVARBYCODE;VAR2;TRACKNAME||ADDTOFILE;C:\SongsToGet.txt;=$VAR2$||MENU;SatSongSaved.skin||WAIT;2||EXIT"
    In the skin code for the "SongSaved.skin" I just have 2 labels for the Artist and Track, showing the song that was saved. It looks like this:

    I used the say command along with an indicator that will shut off on next song change and prevent double entry
