Hi RSBasic, walbus, davido, kvitaliy, and falsam,

Thank you all for your comments...

RSBasic: If I started defining variables in this example, my OCD would force me to update everything I have ever posted. :mrgreen:

kvitaliy: Thank you for pointing out the error.

------------------------------------------------------

Updated:
- search window now returns multiple results
-- user-defined Structure field for Max Results, currently set to 10
-- hard-coded max of 50 results, overrides user-defined setting if greater then max
- search window settings are saved while the program is open
- some minor improvements when loading YouTube videos
- added additional error checking (thanks kvitaliy)

Hi kvitaliy,

You are most welcome.

I wanted to see how the example compiled, and noticed that there was still an external image...

Updated:
- compressed the external image, converted it to base64, than added it as an include file
- update also includes additional shortcut keys and a few small enhancements

NB*: Package now includes a compiled standalone executable.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Reposted the update...

Adding some Shortcut Keys without including a Constant affected typing into the search field.

Additional Shortcut Keys:
- Esc Key: exit Full Screen / close window
- Enter: submit search filter (field must have focus)
- Down Arrow + CTRL: scroll to first search result
- Left Arrow + CTRL: scroll to previous search result
- Right Arrow + CTRL: scroll to next search result
- Up Arrow + CTRL: scroll to last search result
- Spacebar + CTRL: submit current search result

Updated:
- updated Structures
- extended the search results
- improved the Search Filter
- optimized and cleaned up parts of the code

After scrolling to the last record, press the Next or Last button a second time, and a new request is made to the YouTube server for the next set of videos.
- if there are additional videos available, a plus [ + ] sign is displayed to the right of the count

After scrolling to the first record, press the Previous or First button a second time, and a new request is made to the YouTube server for the previously returned search results.
- if there are previously returned search results, a minus [ - ] sign is displayed to the left of the count

As always your support is appreciated; it stands out from the crowd.

-------------------------------------------------

Player Window:
- F1 Key: Toggle Shortcut Menu
- F2 Key: Open Search Window

- F10 Key: Redirect Video Request to YouTube Home Page
- F12 Key: Reload Default Video

- Esc Key: Exit Full Screen / Close Window

Search Window (search field has focus):

- Down Arrow + CTRL: Scroll to First Search Result
- Up Arrow + CTRL: Scroll to Last Search Result
- Left Arrow + CTRL: Scroll to Previous Search Result
- Right Arrow + CTRL: Scroll to Next Search Result
- Spacebar + CTRL: Submit Current Search Result

- Ins Key: Add Playlist Items (show playlist with first insert)
- Del Key: Delete PlayList Items (hide playlist after last delete)

Search Window (playlist has focus):

Updated:
- modified the Playlist
- added a Loop option (default True), resulting in additional player controls

If the Playlist is hidden, the Submit button will load a video from the Search list.

If the Playlist is visible, the Submit button will load one or more videos, starting from the selected item down.
- a single video can be loaded by double-clicking the item, or using the Shortcut keys

A video can be loaded from the Search list using the Shortcut keys, even when the Playlist is visible, but the Search field must have focus.

NB*: See the previous post for a list of Shortcut keys.

-------------------------------------------------

Updated:
- added Drag and Drop
- [ F1 ] Information

After searching for videos, put your mouse cursor over the returned image. Initially you will Drag and Drop your selection onto the YouTube logo, enabling the Playlist.
- Drag and Drop any new items directly into the Playlist

NB*: Because the WebGadget does not support Drag and Drop, I came up with a simple workaround.
