Trying to get this script to work on a custom button. The history delay and load security work but the save unplayed to sidelist doesn't. I tried 0 and 1 in place of yes and no, still doesn't work. What do I need to do to get it working?

setting 'historydelay' 31 ? off & setting 'historydelay' 999 & setting 'loadsecurity' 1 & setting 'saveunplayedtosidelist' no : on blink & setting 'historydelay' 31 & setting 'loadsecurity' 2 & setting 'saveunplayedtosidelist' yes

What are you trying to achieve here?

This is a button I set up, called "practice". During practice, I want security off so I can load new songs quickly for preview, then I do NOT want VDJ to count the songs I play in the last played list or the song count list, and then I want to not fill up the sidelist with songs that don't get played when I eject them from the player or load a new song. Currently, the security, count and played portions of the button work, but the save unplayed to sidelist will not change between yes and no.

With this script, the save unplayed is still not working. The other 2 functions are working. I copied and pasted your exact script and rechecked it. I've started the program 3 or 4 times. I've changed skins a couple times. I don't get it. I'm assuming it works on your machine. How do I know when to use yes/no, 0,1 or on/off? The check box for the sidelist says yes/no so that's what I tried with my script.

Change the saveunplayed setting once manually, then try again.

PS: Generally, the yes/no is considered as on/off on scripts

Still not working. I've tried manually changing it, restarting, changing skins.... It works on your machine, though, right?
