Default floating time selection display?

just asked about this elsewhere but, on further searching, looks like it may be a script thing.

my layout has a tiny display on the transport toolbar for 'selection' that shows time selection in, out, duration. would love it if i could float this under my 'big clock' display. even better if i could choose which elements are displayed (i only really need duration). anyone know of such a script?

thanks,
babag

Install ReaPack and there is a kawa script for this. Search "info."

thanks, foxAsteria! very helpful.

i just tried opening the script for editing and was confronted by a screen full of unformatted mess. i can see the various things i'm interested in in there but no idea how to sort it.

while the script does do what i want, it does a lot more which results in, for my purposes, a lot of visual clutter. i wanted to try to turn off some of the elements. for example, beats are useless to me for current purposes, so i'd like to not display them. likewise, though less important, i don't need the in/out points, either. couldn't figure out how to address this, though, when i opened the script for editing.

any thoughts on this?

thanks again,
babag

The one I'm talking about doesn't show anything but Time Sel info. You can make a request in the Script forum for an edit. Probably it's very easy for someone to remove some elements.

kawa_GUI_InfoTimeSelection.lua is the one i loaded. name sounded closest to what i wanted. i'll check for others. there's also kawa_GUI_InfoLoopSelection.lua but, in my setup, they both display the same info:

in (time) in (beats)
out (time) out (beats)
duration (time) duration (beats)

still looking.

thanks,
babag

Well there is an option to link loop to time selection. If it's on, they will be the same length. I regard them as the same thing since I always have it on.

Yeah. Thanks. For me, though, the real issue is not being able to edit the script. I don't really care which version I use. I just want to be able to turn off the display of the parts of it I don't think I'll ever use.

For now, I'll use one of these as they're much better than the default view on the transport. Could be so much better, though.

Thanks again,

this is what i see when i open the script in an editor. using the built in ide in reaper does pretty much the same thing. can this even be edited? all i want is to comment out most of the displayed fields.



thanks,
babag

I wouldn't touch that, personally. You can find the author with the info at the top. I'd just message them and ask nice. I bet it's easy for them.

Yeah, kawa seems to obfuscate his scripts or something, for whatever reason. (Or maybe he writes code like that? )
I once was confronted with that unformatted mess too when trying ro modify one of his scripts.

i posted a request through his website but haven't heard anything back yet. a lot of the text on the site is in asian character script. maybe, if he's using something like that when coding, it might come out like that in english?

would love to see something like this script that had options for what to display. that way users could choose how simple or complex to make the view. for me, i'd be happy with nothing but the range displayed in the same units as the ruler displays.

thanks,
babag
