Help: Open List from text String

Post by dsotm44 »

Hi all

On my second monitor LHS I have a Sphinxplayer added for radio stations. In order to select a radio station I have to go down three levels of context menus. When it opens, it is in the top LHS corner of my No.1 Monitor.

Is there a way to:
1. open the list by Leftclicking the Station name
2. Have it open just to the right of the player itself

I have spent several hours trying to get it to work, but so far managed to open the menu.ini for editing, but not to run it

Attached are the radio.ini, and the menu.ini from the Sphinxplayer/menu/ subfolder

Many thanks
Brian

Heh - found the first fix

added LeftMouseUpAction=!ActivateConfig "SphynxPlayer\menu" "menu.ini" to the [SelectedTrackTitle] section.

*Edit
Found the second - can't claim the credit though - simply dragged the list from monitor 1 to monitor and it seemed to rewrite the default position. Tested after reboot and it sticks!

**Edit
Added a nice Menu icon and voila!

Yep, those are pretty much it... :thumbup:

EDIT: If you want to open the other skin to the right of the already active one, take a look here and here for answers.

One other thing: if you don't regularly move those skins, you can skip using the !Move bang and/or comparing with the coordinates of another skin I mentioned earlier, and just simply arrange them the way you like, since their positions will be saved by default.

Many thanks

My skins always stay in the same place - that radio menu was annoying cos I keep my No1 monitor free of any icons etc. Will definitely have a look at those options though - once learned never forgotten!

How did you add the icon? you did not post any script - the OP mightn't know how.

EDIT: lol you are the OP!!!! :rofl: :rolmfao:
Can't fix it if it ain't broke - unless it is in code.
