Default EEL: keep selected only one item per MIDI pool

Having several sets of MIDI pooled items, and all items selected, you want to unselect all the pooled items except one of them to apply an action or script on them. This way the action won't repeat over all the pooled ones. You just need to apply it to one of them and the pooled ones will modify automatically.

Here is the script in action:

first 4 items are pooled copies. Next three red items are normal copies of the first items. So not pooled. Green happy item is me now since this is my first EEL script, just another normal item. And then three more pooled items, different from the first set of pooled items. It works for REAPER v4.60 and above.

Thanks to X-Raym, for the help and inspiration

Ooops.. sorry.. I should have indicated that it has that dependency file from the debugging functions by x-Raym.
This one https://github.com/X-Raym/REAPER-EEL...20messages.eel
copy it to same scripts folder.
or you could just remove the @import line from the code and all the debugging functions. they all start with "msg_"

Appears to be working.

Good job.

@FnA
I advice to download my console debug script, as all my future scripts will be based on it, and maybe heda's one. Amongst other scripters probably
It is a small script that make more easy the process to code message and variable to be displayed in the console (Mainly for debugging purpose but not only). It can also be useful to you if you script in eel. you can find more info on the dedicated thread :P

I'll check it out.

heda, are you going to eel the transpose script? I don't really follow what is going on lately around here with eel 'arrays.' I was messing around and I think the transpose script can be handled using strings. Now that you have this, it could be macroed with the rename/transpose part. I won't bother if you're on it already.

I am not trying to translate your python script to EEL... At least not yet. It works well as it is. I just did a custom action where this script to unselect pooled items is executed before the python transpose script and it works well.

EEL arrays are tricky. There is only one array space where you put all your arrays, and you have to define their sizes first in a very strange way. http://forum.cockos.com/showpost.php...37&postcount=9

Wow. I think I don't really need to break my skull on that then. Maybe for giggles I'll pick away at converting it some time. Well, some things are only available for python anyway. (SWS)
