Default Conditions Within Custom Actions

So I know that there are scripting options available to cover this, however I was thinking about how the Custom actions could be improved.

By creating several modifiable conditions within the custom actions, they could be looped or perform different functions depending on the circumstance. For example, by including an "if" or a "while" statement, you could allow the custom action to loop through the process for each track, regardless of how many tracks there are (instead of copying the ingredient actions x many times).

This allows a relatively code free method of programming more advanced features in Reaper for the users without a programming background, or time to delve into the Reaper scripts/languages.

Edit: To add to this, a toggle would be handy for custom actions where it can be assigned to a toolbar button and work both ways (currently I can assign a custom action to a toolbar but it does not toggle off again if I don't like it)

Tom,

Check out SWS Cycle Actions (assuming you have the SWS extension loaded - if not, do so: it's got some great stuff in there).

Cycle Actions are a bit quirky but also quite powerful.

Yep, this is exactly what cycle actions are for.
