When we create our own user RealDrums styles with variations, where have we to input our data in order to get the information in the 5th panel of the RealDrums picker ?
This panel is used to get more details about each RealDrums variation.
See attached view for more details.

Pipeline,
Thanks for your input, but I precise my question :
I know where to insert data in the required .txt files. The question is where to insert data in any .txt in order to get additional info for each variation, as shown in my attached view, in the bottom panel of the RealDrums picker.
Presently, when you insert data in the RDUserMemos.txt, they appear in the User comments panel.

For a PG Music RealDrums style with variation, when you click on a variation (in the Variation panel), you get additional information in the bottom panel. That is what I'm looking for.

EDIT: found the data in the bottom pic in \bb\DrumGrooveNames.txt
Code:
1*SideStick, HiHat @Kick is played on the beat with the sidestick playing on
the eighth note with a hihat playing throughout
2*Snare @Kick is played on the beat with the snare playing on the eighth
note with a hihat playing throughout
3*Ride @Kick is played on the beat with the snare playing on the eighth note
with a ride playing throughout
Country2Beat16^
Country2Beat16^\Country2Beat16^1-Sidestick,Snare$1$2
Country2Beat16^\Country2Beat16^2-Sidestick,Ride$1$3
Country2Beat16^\Country2Beat16^3-Snare,Ride$2$3


You can add it to the RDPGMemos.txt that way you will get a popup on click, as the User Comments RDUserMemos.txt don't have that luxury and is very crammed.

If you are creating an installer you can use a script to append the text to the file.

Thanks, exactly what I was looking for. It works fine.
The only trick is to create a DrumGrooveUserNames.txt file to store our own data, because when PG Music updates its DrumGrooveNames.txt, user data may be deleted.

Yes good idea, you can create a DrumGrooveUserNames.txt that you write the data to as well as DrumGrooveNames.txt then when PG update DrumGrooveNames.txt you can make a bat file to copy all the text from DrumGrooveUserNames.txt to append DrumGrooveNames.txt

UserDrumGrooveUpdate.bat
Code:
type DrumGrooveUserNames.txt >> DrumGrooveNames.txt


for Mac
UserDrumGrooveUpdate.sh
Code:
cat "Applications/Band-in-a-Box/Data/DrumGrooveUserNames.txt" > "Applications/Band-in-a-Box/Data/DrumGrooveNames.txt"


Maybe suggest here Band-in-a-Box Wishlist

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
