[TOOL] [TOMY] The Only Mac YAMJ GUI Configuration Tool and Utility

A little work as it's YAMJ that actually creates the jukebox; I would just have to invoke a "copy" routine after indexing is completed. However, it is in the designing of an elegant interface layout solution that makes this complicated as there is very little room left on the library tab (TOMY is designed to fit within the cramped confines of Apple's smallest Mac 11-inch laptop screen). And would there be a need to allow more than two destinations? But the real question to ask is: If it's an exact duplicate jukebox, why the need to have it on different PCH's as the jukebox, in all likelihood, represents a network share so why not just put the jukebox on its server?

Lol, good point. Big Grin

TOMY uses Apple's bundled WebKit web browser engine which, unfortunately, has some glaring issues/errors. When I initially incorporated this into TOMY, I didn't spend the effort to build elaborate routines to overcome some of its limitations, including the initial loading of an html page which automatically draws from it's cache (I explicitly specified to load directly from source in the function call but it apparently ignores that request on initial loading but adheres to it on reloading). As there are no pre-built functions in the compiler to clear cache, perhaps I can "mask" this by doing the initial load "off-screen" then reloading the html page from source. This may delay the displaying of the browser window by the amount of time it takes to access the source twice (sometimes when my network is very busy the browser slowly "paints" the html page from the jukebox which resides on a NAS).

Sounds like maybe more work than it's worth, thanks for the reply.Smile
