Hello I am new to this and trying to learn some CCF coding,

Am I correct to say that the following code gets a rating of a currently playing track?? And there a way to get a rating of any track in an album or a playlist???

STATE:LUA:
val = NetRemote.GetVariable('MP.Rating');
if (val == '') then
return 0;
end;
return tonumber(val)>=<LoopIndex>;

Regards
yp

Hi yp,
You are correct as to what that does.

Unfortunately there is not (currently) a way to get information about a track other than the current one.

There is a way to get album info for a full album, not sure if that helps.



GAI &#91;path to album&#93; &#91;var name&#93;


so



GAI "Media Library\Albums\My Album" AI


would get album info with the variables named "AI.Album", "AI.Composer", etc. No rating, unfortunately.

hope it gets implemented in the future...!!!

Stay tuned. Some work is being done on the MediaBridge to enable new features like this much more easily.
