Default SWS resources window - auto-filtering possible based on track selection?

Hi,

Does anyone know if it's possible to have a script that:

1. automatically copies and paste the name of the first or only selected track into the filter box in the SWS Resources window
2.removes the filtering when no track is selected?

Thanks

Using the js_ReaScriptAPI extension you could try something like this,

Code:
local title = reaper.JS_Localize('Resources', 'common')
local hwnd = reaper.JS_Window_FindTop(title, true) 
local filter = reaper.JS_Window_FindChildByID(hwnd, 0x466)
if filter then
  local track = reaper.GetSelectedTrack(0, 0) -- get first selected track
  if not track then
    reaper.JS_Window_SetTitle(filter, "")  -- erase text in filter
  else -- set filter to name of first selected track
    local _, track_name = reaper.GetSetMediaTrackInfo_String(track, "P_NAME", "", false) 
    reaper.JS_Window_SetTitle(filter, track_name)
  end
end

that's awesome! Thank you so much. There's just one problem. The script only seems to work when the resources window is floating. I like to keep it docked on the right-hand side of my screen. Is there a tweak which would take account of that?

P.S. There is a reason why I want the window in a specific place! I'm not just being awkward. It's so that I can set up keyboard shortcuts that target specific positions on the screen, e.g. first shown slot, second shown slot etc.

Try changing FindTop to Find,

Code:
local hwnd = reaper.JS_Window_Find(title, true)

That's working! Is there some way I can 'buy you a coffee' to say thanks?
