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)

Thats a shame that it couldn't be easier : /

Ive tried looking for the playlist_tree_mod component but I cant find it, I assume the original playlist_tree is now defunct?
I recently installed library tree component (foo_uie_library_tree) Could this possible do what Im asking for?

Umm no offence, but didn't my solution fit perfectly in your question, besides the inability to shorten it to a certain length?

It works in any UI and you can even create an autoplaylist that always keeps it updated. You can even modify the playcount threshold to match somewhat closely 100 matches (at least at current point in time). I say this because playlist tree requires extreme amounts of knownledge to configure properly and I have a hard time seeing how trimming a list to 100 entrys is not an easy task. Why do you need exactly 100 entrys only?
