And I'm glad you made me revisit the thread, since I didn't catch the latest jsmorley edit... :rolmfao:

I think a \r by itself has no effect at all. The whole Carriage Return deal is a prehensile tail in any case, that Windows just kept so older code won't fail. Not that many "carriages" out there to "return"...
Indeed. The \R should match them both, just like #CRLF#, although I found out the former is a bit tricky to use in certain cases, I believe when it comes to having to function as a "single character pattern" (which is obviously not, as it matches a variable number, either 1 or 2).

I'm just now realizing why for a long period of time the "Enter" key was called Return.

God damn type writers.

Can anyone confirm whether this addon works with the Windows 11 beta?

Other user reporting this window. Is this a WindowsNowPlaying problem?

Any chance we can get this done as a Rainmeter plugin? I've completely replaced the NowPlaying functionality with this.

And here is the exception error. Can this return as a blank value instead of as the exception message?

Also, Japanese and other foreign characters return as "??????????" question marks. Can this be fixed?

Alright. I guess I'll go ahead and remove this app. Get back to me if you fix these bugs, maybe turn it into a plugin instead of this weird script thing.

Unfortunate because it works great for me.

Question: has anyone tried to use the WindowMessage plugin as a "universal NowPlaying" approach, or is it that it can't provide all the info needed or doesn't work with all the players?

It's an interesting idea that I've never really considered before... I'll investigate...

This will depend on whether the said app is exposing stuff to the Windows messaging system and you'll need some other app that can read what parameters are sent and received (sort of like AutoIt is doing) in order to build yourself a "database" of "commands" available, but it's worth checking out, if not for anything at least to know if it's feasible or not.
