comment tag lenght


#1

i want to merge the unsyncedlyrics tag and the year tag.

i use the ottodestruct script to write the lyrics in the comment field instead to the lyrics one, so i can, via an action, merge year and comment to the unsyncedlyrics tag.

all is working well.

i'm only wondering if there's a limit to the lenght of the comment tag, and if i'm risking losing some piece of lyrics in the action.

thanks

i answer myself. it's gonna be truncated at some point.

how do i manage to merge two fields into unsyncedlyrics? i tried with unsyncedlirycs1 and 2 but the "eng||" part won't allow that....

thanks


#3

i answer myself again... i manage to get through via an action with replace regular expression

now i have the unsyncedlyrics that displays:

Year: YYYY

one carriage return and then the lyrics itself.

the action menu is very powerful.... thank u.

if anyone has the same problem....

[#0]
T=5
F=UNSYNCEDLYRICS1
1=%unsyncedlyrics%

[#1]
T=9
F=unsyncedlyrics

[#2]
T=2
F=UNSYNCEDLYRICS1
1=eng||
2=
3=0|0

[#3]
T=5
F=UNSYNCEDLYRICS2
1=%year%

[#4]
T=5
F=UNSYNCEDLYRICS
1=YEAR: %unsyncedlyrics2%$char(13)$char(10)$char(10)%unsyncedlyrics1%

[#5]
T=9
F=unsyncedlyrics1;unsyncedlyrics2

i was searching to show in the ipod the year tag and then the lyrics. this works.

You can do it in one step:

Action type: Format value
Field: UNSYNCEDLYRICS
Formatstring: Year: %year%$char(13)$char(10)$char(13)$char(10)$replace(%unsyncedlyrics%,eng||,)
