Anyway to access the filename?

I want to be able to access the filename (without the file extension) within
a web source script, any way to do this?

The reason is I want to pre-append the filename to the title for TV shows.

The %_filename% variable does not seem to work in the web source script engine!

Funny, I just tried the same. I also found no way to get it work. What I tried:
outputto "filename"
outputto "_filename"
outputto "FILENAME"
outputto "_FILENAME"
all do not work.

But you can help yourself with an action group:
Include something like:
outputto "dummy filename"
in your script. After running your script, run an action group with to actions:

1st:
Format Tag Field:
Field: _FILENAME
String: %dummy filename%

2nd:
Delete Tag Field:
Field: DUMMY FILENAME

Hmm, nice little work around there, thanks.

Really hoping the developers could add this little change in to an upcomming (next) release.

Hint, hint, please, beg grovel :smiley:

Well I took your hint and knocked up a little Action script that does the job for me :smiley:

Still be nice to get to the %_filename% within the web source script though :wink:

Add_Filename_to_Title.mta (111 Bytes)

Been a long while since I have been on the forum :slight_smile:

I still require the ability to access the filename type variables within a web sources
script, please any chance this could be added in, this time I want to load up
a local XML file to extract tag data from rather than collect from a true web source

i.e.

[AlbumUrl]=file://%_filename%.nfo

Sorry to pester but really would like to know if this feature could be added, it would save me hours?

Just want to know if its on the to-do list or not :slight_smile:
