How do you change the preferences using scripts? Specifically the Manual Playlist Advance option?

as long as you can send a WM_COMMAND message then you can change most settings

Unless I can copy the C code that thread ID points to, I can't use that script . Plus I have no idea what a WM_COMMAND message is or how to use one. A little more help if you could, please?

the way winamp works for control is to have messages sent to it in the form of a msg id and then depending on that message will decide what the next two values will be.
without knowing how you're trying to script things, i can't really help out much more since it all depends if you are able to send this message to the main window

This is what I plan on doing:
I want to add an LCD onto the Repeat button. Pretending '[' and ']' are the left and right borders of the LCD and '@' is the repeat symbol you see on CD players, it will go like this: [ 1] [@1] [@a] [__]. I want it to cycle through that on a left-click, or you directly select on a right-click.
[ 1] = Play One (Manual Playlist Advance ON, Repeat OFF)
[@1] = Repeat One (MPA ON, Repeat ON)
[@a] = Repeat All (MPA OFF, Repeat ON)
[__] = Play (MPA OFF, Repeat OFF)
I need to know the code to set MPA and repeat to 1 or 0 from within a script. I can code the LCD screen, the right-click menu and the cycling on left-click from there.

All I need to know is how to turn repeat and manual playlist advance on and off- if someone can tell me how to do that, I can code the rest myself.
SendMessage(hwnd_winamp,WM_WA_IPC,state,IPC_SETREPEAT); (think that's right since i'm typing from memory at work).
that's what you need to flip the repeat mode on / off depending on what 'state' is

I'm getting an error on this thing: I'm using MC to compile the script, and it exits with a Syntax error at the declaration of hwnd_Winamp.
Here's the output when I try to compile:
MC - Maki Compiler v1.1.1.b3
(c)2001, Nullsoft Inc.
OK: 18 macro expansions, 53169 bytes, 2142 lines, 2 files
syntax error at std.mi:1788  :
Exited with code 4
If I don't inclde std.mi, it gives a syntax error as soon as it comes to a WA class (button, togglebutton, layout, etc...) Is there a file in the SDK which includes a definition of what the HWND type is, the same way std.mi defines the WA classes? I'm sure the error will disappear if I include that file.

I know you said this is possible in C(++), can a C script be run from within the skin? I don't want to make an exterior plugin for this, I want it to be part of the skin, so if the C script can be run from within the skin, that's all I need.
