Topic: Wish for get_browsed_folder_path
Wish for script verb:


which would return the full path of the browsed Virtual Folder, folder path, within the Virtual Folder Directory.

For example:

get_browsed_folder_path would return:

C:\Users\WIN10USER\Documents\VirtualDJ\Folders\LocalMusic\2021.subfolders\April.subfolders\House.subfolders\Tech House.subfolders\Vocal.subfolders

This would be similar to the way that get_browsed_filepath returns the full path in the OS (of the current browsed track)

currently there is get_vdj_folder which returns the home folder of VirtualDJ
in the above example that would return:


If the Virtual Folder "2021" is selected, one can currently get it's path:


by using scripting which includes, get_browsed_folder, which returns the name of the folder selected in browser.
Ie: returning "2021"

BUT in the first case above.. get_browsed_folder would return just, "Vocal"

and seems to be NO way to get the intermediate sub-folders in the Virtual Folder Tree, for the full path.

hence the need for get_browsed_folder_path
(that would return the full path of the browsed Virtual Folder, folder path)
