Thanks!


BTW; the download is currently still labeled v1.0, the file seems to be the updated version though.

Ok, got this installed now, is there a more in depth how-to on building the custom reports ?

Also if I I want to generate code for several titles is it going to auto copy it to the clip board or does it generate a file ?

Just type merrily away! 

Depends on what you want. Just as an example: I sometime retouch certain cover-scans. Of course it would be to arduous to wade through the actual image-folder of the database with all those number-files, so I have a custom report:
copy "c:\Users\Mithi\Documents\DVD Profiler\Databases\Default\Images\TP_ProfileIDf.jpg" "d:\Bilder\DVD Cover\Baustelle\TP_Title Frontcover.jpg"
move "d:\Bilder\DVD Cover\Baustelle\TP_Title Frontcover.jpg" "c:\Users\Mithi\Documents\DVD Profiler\Databases\Default\Images\TP_ProfileIDf.jpg"


Now if I flag (or just select) the german BD of Inception and go Collection -> Flagged -> Custom Trading Poster I get:
copy "c:\...\5051890019868.5f.jpg" "d:\...\Inception Frontcover.jpg"
move "d:\...\Inception Frontcover.jpg" "c:\...\5051890019868.5f.jpg"

(paths shortened for clarity)
So I paste those lines in an editor, copy the first one and paste it into a commandline and Taada, the cover gets copied with a human readable title to my "lets-work-on-pictures"-folder. After I'm done with it I copy the second line and paste it, and DVD Profiler never knew what hit him.

Always the clipboard. If I have several files I let the editor sort them alphabetical, so all "copy" and all "move" commands get together.

Thanks Mithi, I am playing around with a way to do facebook statue updates or post linking when I watch Movies.

Well, I am not a code/script monkey so I have no idea the format of how these reports are built. So a basic how to would be nice for the dumb like me.

I understand the calls from teh read me, just not how they should be laid out and or formatted.

Thanks

Just put them in your code where you need the actual values. These are placeholders which will be replaced by the appropriate data for each profile. The code in the body part will be duplicated for each profile.

You are taking way way too much for granted for a dummy like me.

Hell there isn't even a way to view the others as a template.

So do I just vomit in the

TP_Title
TP_ImageURL
TP_Format

and thats it ?

Nice way to put it, but yes, this essentially is it.

Ok, just so you know I wasn't trying to be vulgar.

The thing is :

Just adding those tags/code you get a raw reply.

So as I see it you need to also add formating to those code segments to get something usable.

As an example for a different for you would also need to wrap the TP_Title segment in TP_Title and then [img] tags etc

Thats partly what I was wondering about as you would also need to dump in say HTML code for use in say a web site or an html enabled forum.

That is what I would looking for when I asked about examples, that is all.

Still trying to figure out a way to make this work with facebook

thanks, this shoudl be fun

is there a segment for pulling upc ?

I think I have found something that will work using something like :

http://www.invelos.com/ProfileLinks.aspx?upc=TD_UPC

Unless there is another way to call these pages

http://www.invelos.com/ProfileLinks.aspx?upc=8714865331668.9&locality=0

thoughts ?

Sorry for the late answer. I was away on business last week.

The UPC, including the locality suffix, you can get with TP_ProfileID.

In your case:

http://www.invelos.com/ProfileLinks.aspx?upc=TP_ProfileID&locality=0

And these tags do not add any formatting to be more flexible in your usage.

For example I mainly use it for forums with BBCode formatting, which is different to HTML formatting.

Another voice for multiple customs! (if it is feasible)
I use the custom format for copying covers to a working directory where I can manipulate them with GIMP and move them back. A bit more options could come in handy for me.

Yea Multi customs would be nice.

I do have a question.

I sorted my collection by purchase date, selected the profiles I wanted and when I past them they are not in the same order as when I had them sorted.

Is there a way to keep them in the sort order ?

No, sorry. Except if Ken changes the way the API returns the collection. Currently you get the flagged entries returned sorted by Profile ID.
