I want to make an autoplaylist that will contain my top 100 songs with the highest play counts.
Im using the foo_playcount component so my playcounts are stored in %play_count%.
What kind of sort/query pattern syntax do I need to limit the number of items (tracks) in an autoplaylist?
So far I have this in the query pattern: "%play_count% GREATER 0" which removes any songs not yet played. What I need now is something to limit the number of entries in the playlist to maximum 100 (or whatever number I want)

Im very new to the syntax used so I dont know if there is a simple solution to this. I assume I need something like $max(%title%, 100)? (I know its wrong)

You can't limit a list that way and since queries only validates against each track, you'll have to find another solution.

The best you could do is probably something like:

%play_count% GREATER 3 SORT DESCENDING BY %playcount%

Then you'll have a list sorted by playcount, which you can easily shorten manually.
