    I think you had something going back when you were trying it the other way.

    I would probably set up a variable that changes ONSONGSTART so that it checks if the file is a song or video, and displays such slider info.

    Something like:

    "ONSONGSTART","SETVAR;MYPOS;SONGPOS"
    "ONVIDEOSTART","SETVAR;MYPOS;VIDEOPOS"

    And the slider would have:
    "$MYPOS$" for the code.

    The "ONVIDEOSTART" can probably be set up in exectbl.ini, but I'm not on that computer to test that.

    The only problem would be that if you have a song playing, then switch to video mid song, and then back to the song, it probably wouldn't update. (same issue if you use the script that MGD posted.)

    It will show the track time in sec. You can run that script ONSONGSTART.
    Just rename to exe.
    this will work, but id like to keep my original TRACKTIME label. can you change it so that it creates a new label like "TRACKTIME2" or something like that?

    EDIT: cant get it working...

    did you try my method? (I haven't yet, but I have an idea to try if it doesn't work...)


    @mstaedt - did you get your issue resolved? we kinda hijacked the thread here and I wanted to make sure your question was answered.

    yea sorry mstaedt, please jump in here if your problem isnt resolved, that was initially started.. anyway, i dont think your method will work because the custom slider will not move throughout the song. maybe instead of ONSONGSTART, if i just put that code on a timer that updated every 1 second, it would work. idn

    EDIT: got the Time.exe script working. you didnt tell me i had to make a variable called "$MYTIME$"..... well, technically you did, i just didnt know that it was specific to that variable. had to decompile it to figure it out. o well, thanks for the help

    Yes and no. More research and some tinkering led me to the realization that RR doesn't seem to refresh variables fast enough to make for smooth movement of a tach or speedo in fine increments anyway.

    Thanks...

    yea, you could set up a timer to update the slider (not too hard) for a speedo or tach or whatever, but im not real sure how fast RR can update the slider. right now my custom slider updates every 1 second to reproduce a SONGPOS slider and im happy with it
