Rating music with the number keys on remote - Rate songs with one click using numpad?

Currently in the Aeon theme to rate a song you need to:

Select the song >> Context menu >> Song information >> up arrow x 5 to get the top rating.

This takes time and can require up to 7 remote presses.

Is it possible to rate a song or album by simply pressing a numbered button on the remote while a song/album is selected?

else if (strAction.Equals("increaserating")) wAction = ACTION_INCREASE_RATING;
else if (strAction.Equals("decreaserating")) wAction = ACTION_DECREASE_RATING;

seems there is no action to set a specific rating but atleast no need to open the menu.

Thanks, I think I get it Nerd

Will the list view dynamically update? Wink

That would be really cool.

In music visualisation you can set allready the IncreaseRating/DecreaseRating very easy by pressing up and down.Big Grin


Piece of standard keymap.
PHP Code:
<Visualisation
    <
remote
      <
left>PreviousPreset</left
      <
right>NextPreset</right
      <
up>IncreaseRating</up
      <
down>DecreaseRating</down
      <
back>LockPreset</back
      <
title>CodecInfo</title
      <
select>XBMC.ActivateWindow(VisualisationPresetList)</select
      <
menu>XBMC.ActivateWindow(MusicOSD)</menu
      <
start>XBMC.ActivateWindow(MusicOSD)</start
      <
info>Info</info
    </
remote

Edit: customize your keymap !!! here some links.Big Grin

Available actions

+1 here as well. Would be nice if the numbers 1 - 5 set the rating instantly.
