    Default Template wizards: is this possible?

    Is it possible to tweak a template so that it could indicate if I have entered "Lyrics" and/or "Personal Notes" to a track?

    Maybe by using a small icon or the letters L and/or N right next to the actual track?

    Hi hardbop,

    I have built in a function that places different small icons next to a track in album page (well, in all pages if I want) if it is a Favourite Track, or a Classic Track, or has a particular type of solo in it. I have sent you an instant message - check your box!

    Smile Track icons

    Hope these will be of use to you all. I attach my template, and a doc explaining (a tad clumsily, I'm afraid) how to utilise my icons feature). Any probs, just shout!

    Thanks so much for this. I now have an iPod icon next to the tracks I have on my device. If I could bother you further. You use a textbox, but I have already used a checkbox in my dataase and would naturally prefer to use the existing data I have rather than convert it. I don't know enough to know how to use a checkbox instead of a textbox in my adaptation of your code:

    <!-- ==== START CT-FT FUNCTION ====== -->
    <script type="text/javascript">
    /* ----------------------------- */
    function checkValue2(trackcustom8)
    /* ----------------------------- */
    {
    switch (trackcustom8.toLowerCase())
    {
    case "ip":
    // on iPod
    document.write(" <img width=13 src='h:\\itunes\\ipod.ico'>");
    break;

    default:
    // All other tracks - do nothing
    break;
    }
    }
    </script>
    <!-- ==== END CT-FT FUNCTION ====== -->

    I don't know what value a checkbox returns to use in the case statement or even if a case statement is the right syntax to use.

    I should say I think I know why you used a textbox as you wanted to signal many different things; but all I want to signal is whether it is on my iPod so a checkbox works better.

    Thanks

    I'm afraid I honestly don't know - I'm not that experienced at all in programming! That's why I used a textbox. My only suggestion would be to search for all tracks with your IP checkbox checked, then bulk edit that info into a pre-prepared textbox so you could just follow my example. I only know this way of doing it through following someone else's example several years ago!
