Re: Need direction on script for custom filename parsing

Quick one: how can I determine if a field has any content, or is empty?
i.e. the logic might look like "if {genres.count}=0 then '_No Genre Listed'"

Re: Need direction on script for custom filename parsing

1. You're probably looking for match() and matchAll() to retain tokens from the original filename or path. You will find many many examples here: https://www.filebot.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2 I can't get match() to work, but I have so far been able to use contains() so I think I'm good. Some...

Need direction on script for custom filename parsing

After a lot of TV scripting experiments, I've got things about right, but I'm now working on the movie collection. I'd like to be able to do a few things, some of which may (and some of which may not) be possible - hoping for some direction! Here's my script at this time: {n.replaceFirst(/^(?i)(The)...

Re: How to sort files in the "Rename" pane

rednoah wrote:As for custom sorting, that's not supported.
Is this something you're considering for a future release?

The ability in the Rename pane (either Original Files (or both sides)) to sort in a Windows column-like format (name, numeric name, size, date, etc.) would be a fantastic addition...

Re: Can FB sort by input filenames/folders?

It only requires the Java Runtime. So you can either install the JRE, or the JDK which includes the JRE. I suppose the JDK page was the first result when I googled "download java 8" then... I wish I'd noticed the '8' part in your 'news' info, then. https://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp#win was wh...

Re: Can FB sort by input filenames/folders?

You just need to install the latest JRE => http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html OK, I've done that and it now works with the sorting again. The error message that was coming up was 'requires Java Runtime', not the Developer Kit. (JRE = Runtime Env. and...

Re: Can FB sort by input filenames/folders?

Can u send me a screenshot of unsorted files? Basically if you just drop in a folder it'll take the order that i get things back from the filesystem, which on windows is always sorted alphabetically as far as i can tell. I'm sorry, I never saw this reply... I (somehow) got things sorting OK so neve...

Add a field with blank results (but source data exists)?

A number of shows come back with a blank {genres}, despite the source having an entry for a genre. I primarily use TVDB as it has a more expansive selection, but often TVRage has more details on a specific show. It's weird; I believe that when TVRage has a genre listed, and TVDB does not, I get a bl...
