#3052 closed bug (fixed)

not possible to drag and save files from SoundRecorder

Reported by: nutela Owned by: korli
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Applications/SoundRecorder Version: R1/pre-alpha1

Description

how to reproduce: Click the green audio waveform display and drag it to the Desktop or Tracker window Open the extended window below the main window, click and drag any AudioClip[0-9]+ to the Desktop or Tracker window experienced behaviour: nothing happens expected behaviour: R5: Clicking the green audio waveform display and dragging it to the Desktop or Tracker window should save the audioclip as "AudioClip[0-9]+" where [0-9]+ is an extended regex Opening the extended window below the main window, clicking and dragging any AudioClip[0-9]+ (where [0-9]+ is an extended regex) to the Desktop or Tracker window should save that audioclip as AudioClip[0-9]+ (where [0-9]+ is an extended regex) (note: this behaviour greatly speeds up audio recording and reuse by supporting the creative process by not asking for filenames which can always be dealt with 'later' :-) seriously)

Nutela, is there any chance of you becoming a programmer? You could make stuff like this work, you know? Seriously! With a bit of help at the first steps, you could become a Haiku coder! :-) The ones that want to get things done with Haiku are the best.

Could you check with a current revision please ? It might not be complete.

It seems to write only the header. In R5 it also possible to drag the file name from the expanded SoundRecorder to a Tracker window, it will work the same way.

File naming doesn't seem to work quite like R5 IIRC but I'm not sure, isn't it supposed to suggest a name which doesn't exist in the default save location or when it is dragged to a folder where there already exist an audiofile[0-9]+ it increments by 1?

@Stippi, I learned a bit C, and read the first 4 chapters of C++ by Biarne Soustrup IIRC until virtual functions or something which became a little bit over my head :). I'd first write Apps which I need for music though.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

For me this particular ticket has been solved meanwhile (hrev39402). At least I can drag&drop a clip from the wave display or by clicking the disk symbol. It creates an file "Audio Clip" and increases a suffixed number for every saved file. It only saves as WAV, no way to choose the format, but that's a new ticket.
Closing as fixed.
