User Tools and the Registry 2007-05-13 07:06 pm NWC2 stores a wealth of information in the Registry. VBScript and JScript can read and write this information. Unfortunately, NWC2 doesn't fully update changes exept when NWC2 is opened or closed. If NWC2 would fully update before and after running a User Tool, the capabilities of User Tools could be greatly expanded. A Tool could:configure the Editortake action based on the current song titletake action based on the current song filename Another limit to User Tools is that the Tool doesn't know if the clip represents a selection of:nothingthe entire staffthe beginning of staffa partial staffnor does it know where the cursor is.If this info could be passed in the clip, User Tools could be more flexible in their actions.If a Tool knows that it has the beginning of a staff, it knows it has the context (TimeSig, Key, Clef), and can do many more things with confidence.
