Topic: Browser Sort Issue
djdonnPRO InfinityMember since 2006
In the browser, when I click on a field to sort it, is there a way to get the cursor to follow the sort and go to the top of the browser? Currently, when I click on any field to sort, the cursor stays with the song currently selected rather than rising to the top of the column I sorted, and then I have to hit the home key to get the cursor to go to the top of the browser. Example, if I click the Title field, I'd want "A" to be at the top. If I click it again, I'd want "Z" to be at the top.

No, the "cursor" will keep showing the selected track- whatever that is. Only way is to use a button assigned as ..
browser_scroll 'top'

OK. I've been using the Home key. Guess I'll just keep using that.

Could you not add it in with the browser sort command script '&'?

Not sure. It would be nice to be able to modify the command that sorts the columns directly, rather than have to use a key to sort columns. I would want all column sorts to go to the beginning of the sort when I sort them. Any ideas on how to do that?

I tried it, it worked but not as expected. However I ditched it and mapped it as a press and hold function "Holding ? ... : ..." to one of the browser sort buttons.

That's the one thing I wish could be imported from VDJ7, I absolutely loved the browser sort feature function, no scrolling up or down to get what you want

Yep totally possible, surprisingly easy compared to how I thought about it 5 minutes ago

This is a demo only working with bpm & artist, you can add any column you want.
If you want me to write it for you, you'll have to pm me your browser columns.

repeat_start 'switchToTop' ? on & repeat_stop 'switchToTop' & set '$oldSort' 0 & set '$FoS' 0 : off & repeat_start 'switchToTop' 50ms & cycle '$FoS' 2 & var '$FoS' 1 ? browser_sort '+bpm' ? set '$newSort' 1 & var '$oldSort' 0 ? set '$oldSort' 1 : nothing : browser_sort '-bpm' ? set '$newSort' 2 & var '$oldSort' 0 ? set '$oldSort' 2 : nothing : browser_sort '+artist' ? set '$newSort' 3 & var '$oldSort' 0 ? set '$oldSort' 3 : nothing : browser_sort '-artist' ? set '$newSort' 4 & var '$oldSort' 0 ? set '$oldSort' 4 : nothing : nothing : var_equal '$oldSort' '$newSort' ? nothing : set '$oldSort' '$newSort' & browser_scroll 'top'

Thanks nice one, I do like knowing when these things work as expected. I love that with vdj you can pretty much 'invent' your own settings.
