Topic: Compatible folder script
Ok i have filter folders that populate with compatible tracks according to the grouping of playing tracks.

as you can see theres quite a few filter folders, my question is can i have a filter folder that will choose the track that match the track on the decks according to the grouping or comment field. If i have a song with a grouping of classichiphophot playing on the deck when i go to this filter folder it only looks at tracks with that same grouping. I want this so i dont have so many filter folders.

Grouping contains "2016" or Grouping contains "2015" and Grouping contains "R&B"

Im not trying to alter the scripts. Im trying to write one script that will filter according to grouping field of track on the deck. Do you understand where im going with it?

try to enclose the grouping part of your filter to parenthesis or else it will provide all tracks matching the last or criteria ..
so ..
BPM Difference .. and Key Difference .. and (grouping contains....or grouping ... )

Remember , when you use the grouping , it refers to the Database field of the tracks in your library and not the grouping of the playing track. So the above filter will provide all the tracks that match the following criteria ..
compatible (based on the BPM and Key of the playing track) AND (have grouping that matches with the provided strings)

ok after 5 years of trying to learn script Im not understanding it. So if possible can you give me an example.
You said grouping refered to database...so is there anyfield i could use to fit what im trying to do.
Could this be a custom button?

What Babis meant above is that you can type your filter like this:
(Grouping contains "2016" or Grouping contains "2015") and Grouping contains "R&B"
