Topic: PLEASE make RECURSE available
HeltinoPRO InfinityMember since 2020
Please make recurse available within the options to be adjustable.
It is just a pain in the ass to make everytime a right click to select it.
I would like to have it per default and knowing some guys does not, please make it for us selectable!

I'm not sure if recurse works on the database level only, or if it also accesses the storage and scans for files.
If the latter is true, then this would be hell for people with slow drives or HDDs, and some people may not know why this is and just blame the software.

Been a few requests, might come ;-)

And could possibly just be part of the VirtualDJ folders, so it would only be on playlists, virtual folders ("crates"), favorites (bookmarked), and filter folders (perhaps)

Easy, make it switchable in the options and set „off“ as default.

As VDJ has anyway millions of option to be modified it should be no issue to let the user select how it is working.
Default ON or default OFF or just for XYZ-Folders.....

repeat_start 'autoRecurse' 100ms -1 & param_equal `get_var '$rFolder'` `get_browsed_folder` ? nothing : recurse_folder & set '$rFolder' `get_browsed_folder`
