Re: Unintuitive button labels! "Override" vs. "Overwrite"

I see where you're coming from with those labels now. :) Fortunately, the option that overwrites the original file has a red circle 🔴, while the one that doesn't potentially cause a loss of data by replacing a file has a green circle. 🟢 In my opinion, those colours are helpful and intuitive. I'm a b...

Unintuitive button labels! "Override" vs. "Overwrite"

The function of the "Override" button is to replace (i.e. overWRITE) an original file with another one of the same name. Surely, this is an act of overWRITing, rather than of overRIDing? These words sound similar but they're not interchangeable! :D As a new FileBot user who is looking at FileBot wit...

Re: Exclude all NFO files during renaming

Good point. I may as well use the {plex} binding here.

The Filter -> Send to: Rename method works perfectly!

This is my first time using the Filter tab. I wasn't sure what its purpose was before and now I know! :lol:

Exclude all NFO files during renaming

This is the format expression I use to rename my movies: D:/Movies/{n.colon(' - ').removeIllegalCharacters()} ({y})/{n.colon(' - ').removeIllegalCharacters()} ({y}) Is it possible to add some code to this, so that any files with a ".nfo" file extension are not renamed? For example: https://i.imgur.c...

Re: [Request] Load window size

Whenever I load files into FileBot, I always have to resize the Load window (make it bigger). Is there any way the default size could be bigger (3 or 4 times as big as it is now), or have FileBot remember the size you set the window to? +1 Throwing my hat into the ring! It would be nice if FileBot ...

Re: How do I use String.removeIllegalCharacters() in my custom format?

You're way off base. You need neither Java nor Groovy. FileBot uses these technologies as a platform, and FileBot wouldn't work if these technologies weren't already built into the FileBot installer package. Installing Java and Groovy separately, or not, will generally have no effect on FileBot. Th...

Re: How do I use String.removeIllegalCharacters() in my custom format?

You can inspect Groovy properties for any Object like so: {plex.properties} I'm guessing that to be able to do that, I would need Groovy and the Java SE Development Kit 8 installed? So I went ahead and installed them and I think I'm slowly making progress now! The first thing I noticed was that my ...

Re: How do I use String.removeIllegalCharacters() in my custom format?

You can inspect Groovy properties for any Object like so: {plex.properties} Good to know! :arrow: You can check the code. But running tests on a representative set of files is probably better, because the latter you should be doing anyway. ;) Makes sense. I'll probably use a combination of both. I ...

Re: Scripting help (basic question!)

:arrow: Sounds like you just want to use {plex} though, which will take care of everything implicitly: https://www.filebot.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4116 Thanks.

Re: Scripting help (basic question!)

Would you be able to do the same for the format expression for my movies?

Code: Select all

{n.colon(' - ')} ({y})

How do I use String.removeIllegalCharacters() in my custom format?

I'm using the following format expression: {n}/{'Season '+s.pad(2)}/{n} - {s00e00.lower()} - {t.removeIllegalCharacters()} It works great so far but I would also like illegal characters in the season name string to be excluded. How can I achieve this? I tried the following, but it didn't work as I p...
