At any rate, confirmed that something's not quite right here, would be good if you could put it in the SWS tracker so it doesn't get buried here.

Thanks.
This will be fixed in 5.91pre2 (it was some locking on our end that was the problem).

Is this the appropriate thread for SWS feature requests?

ReaScripts do not currently have access to all the nifty C++ functions for getting information about windows.

It would be very helpful if SWS could expose these three functions to the API:
* WindowFromPoint
* GetClientRect
* ClientToScreen

This would help me to
* precisely position script GUIs within the MIDI editor and other windows, and
* obtain more detailed info about the mouse cursor context than BR_GetMouseCursorContext currently provides.


EDIT: These functions are provided by Cockos's WDL SWELL cross-platform implementation of the win32 API.

Better use GitHub tracker, it allows to have a disucssion per issue, track the state of the feature request etc...

@ svijayrathinam

Sorry the fix didn't make it in 2.9.8. (It's because I was still waiting for feedback for this fix back then.)

But it's submitted meanwhile and will be in next version.

I'll try to do a temporary 2.9.8 version with this fix included soon.

Replied on your (new) GitHub issue.

Thank you.. If you can make a temporary 2.9.8 version that will help very much. Thank you

I would like to know what steps I should follow to contribute some code to SWS.

I uploaded the code to my fork at GitHub, and submitted a pull request. (I am not quite sure that I did everything correctly, since this is my first time doing pull requests.)

Is there anything else I should do? I notice that the most recent SWS installer is v2.9.7 of September 2017. There have been numerous other pull requests since then, most by cfillion, but none have been incorporated into a new SWS version yet.



EDIT: I would appreciate it a lot if someone could test whether my code builds correctly on MacOS and Linux.

If you did a PR you're done, I suppose. Then it's up to the powers that be to integrate that.

@juliansader

I'm not an 'official SWS maintainer' but I did some contributions to SWS in the past I may answer some things.

- It's a good idea to start working from the next branch, rather than master branch as you did, since the 'next' branch contains all the latest code changes.
In short (don't know how familiar you are with Git branching), 'master' branch contains the code for official SWS releases, the 'next' branch is where ongoing development happens and is used for pre-releases, so it's usually ahead of the master branch. (Rundown of the branching approach, 'Develop' branch is the equivalent to the SWS 'next' branch.)

edit:
A common approach is also, rather than working on 'next' directly, to start a new local branch from next (= 'feature branch' in above link) when working on something and then pull request that branch when done. This enables working on stuff in parallel for example by simply switching branches.

- Similarly pull requests should be submitted to 'next' branch, rather than 'master' branch. (As mentioned in the README).
edit:
To clarify, you can choose which branch your pull request should be merged into when creating it on GitHub:



- It's suggested to update the whatsnew.txt, if you add new stuff, as mentioned here.

As said, I'm no SWS maintainer, so just take it as 'good practice suggestions' (other contributors may correct me).

As to your PR itself, Tim (SWS) is the current maintainer (afaik) and handles merging of PR's so he'll probably approach you if he wants something changed etc.

Sorry, can't help with Mac and Linux builds.

Default Region playlist change?

For live performance, I have a project where I'm using Regions to indicate "songs" and within the regions, I'm using markers for song bits (intro, V1, C1, etc).

I've been making a new project every time I want to change up the set, but that isn't really fast or fun. The regions make it a little easier to copy/paste songs in the order I want, but why not use the Regions Playlist extension??

Well...It seems that the Regions Playlist editor thinks that a marker means jump to the next region. Boo. Yeah yeah..."Just delete your markers!" But I WANT the markers AND the regions!!

Is there a way to make the Regions Playlist tool ignore the markers and only follow the regions? I understand the appeal of the current method, but it would be nice to be able to turn the sensitivity to markers on/off with a toggle or something.

Thanks!

Better ask this in a new dedicated forum thread with a decent topic/caption to get attention, as this is related to using, and not to updating the SWS extension.

(Unfortunately there is no dedicated subforum for "Live" usage of Reaper, yet, to prominently posting such a question).

Default SWS Track Management

I just installed the SWS extensions and maybe I'm nuts but for the life of me I can't find the SWS Track/Mixer/Envelopes menu in the track control panel context menu. According to the SWS manual, it should be under "SWS Snapshots" but my context menu ends at SWS Snapshots.

Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!

By "manual" do you mean "Reaper Plus! The Power of SWS Extensions"? If so, that document is eight years out of date.

Depending on what you want to do, View | Track Manager might help. Looking at a screenshot of the menu, all of those are still available in Action List. Not sure why the context menu went away.

Lol you're right - I didn't notice the date - 2010!

Yeah, the context menu would be fantastic but at least they're all still in the action list. I guess I can make a custom toolbar or something for the ones I think I'd use most.

@X-Raym: do you think you could modify your script X-Raym_Set selected items fade-in fade-out length.lua to not add fades to MIDI items, please?


All the best!
Dax.

Default Region Playlist extra Actions

I've posted this under Gitub but i wanted a little more attention and couldn't find the sws request/general thread.. Hope it isn't out of place to post here..

I'm the drummer and system playback engineer 🥇 in my bands and I use a small 10 Touchscreen only windows system for Multitrack playback live , therefore the region playlist text is very small and hard to see so i switch it to monitoring mode(which is nice and clear)

The problem is now there is no way to navigate the setlist via midi controllers.

The key to this is that some songs/regions must smoothseek to the next song/region, but sometimes i have to pause/stop inbetween and also skip these smoothseeking songs/regions so i can't use seperate playlists.

I tried to make some custom actions

This resets the the whole list
-play next region based on currently playing region
-stop

This has erractic behaviour
-play next region based on currently playing region
-pause



Here's what i'm wanting

goto/select Next Region in current playlist (In Non Playing State or stopped without playing next region)
goto/select Prev Region in current playlist (In Non Playing State or stopped without playing next region)
Play Currently Selected Region In Region Playlist (When stopped)
Stop Currently selected region and stay selected ready to play again

Ultimately would be awesome if its available when in monitoring mode..

Willing to donate some beer money to someone upto the task . pm me.

Default Pre-release update?

Hey guys,

Last official SWS extension is v2.9.7 from September 2017... I see on pre-release page that v2.9.8.0 is available with extensive list of changes.

Is anyone using v2.9.8.0? Is it stable, any issues? Asking for a friend who's still on 2017 version

Thanks for any help, much appreciated!

"SWS/S&M: Remove all envelopes for selected tracks" has an issue in that version causing it to freeze if the master track is selected. I think it's still worth updating though, unless you rely on that action working on the master track.

(The fix is ready – just waiting to be put in an official release...)

Thanks for the answer mate! Actually I do use that specific action on master track, but if the official release fix is coming I think I can wait a bit longer.

Thanks again & cheers!

Don't hold your breath for an official release. There's a huge backlog of fixes/additions on the Github repository, waiting to be put in.

The current prerelease version has been stable for me though. If the action above is an issue, you could probably wrap it in a custom action like:

Store current track selection
Deselect master track (I'm assuming that's an action somewhere)
SWS/S&M: Remove all envelopes for selected tracks
Restore track selection
