    Is it possible to pass ID3 tag info from a PL directory to a label?

    Here's what I want to do:

    When moving up and down the Playlist directory, I want a label to constantly update that displays a tracks's artist/alubum information. The highlighted song that is not necessarily the currently playing song. While I know I can format the PL to display all that, I'm looking for a cleaner look on my playlist.

    Is that possible to do in RR?

    There are two labels you can use with that. It will show the highlighted item in a PlayList or DirectoryList.
    "PLTEXT" - Shows the text currently selected on a playlist
    "DLTEXT" - Shows the text currently selected on a Directory List (Folder list)

    Hop that what you're after.

    Not quite. I've tried using that but it's not passing the info that I need.

    Currently, my playlist browser is formated to display ID3 song titles only.

    What I would like to do is to take the currently highlighted song's ID3 artist and album info and pass that on to a label to be displayed independently.

    That way, I don't have to clutter up my playlist with repetative info like artist/album info.
