mimeryme's problem seems to be solved, in any case. $if($stricmp('The ',$substr($meta_sep(artist,', '),1,4)),$substr($meta_sep(artist,', '),5,$len($meta_sep(artist,', '))),$meta_sep(artist,', ')) works the way i think he wants it to.[a href="index.php?act=findpost&pid=375931"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a]

Actually, that formatting produces the same results as my initial format string.  It's listing all the artists of a track as one entry in the list as opposed to keeping them separate.

I think my initial description is inexact.

I'd like to maintain the separation of artists afforded by using the multi-tags format 'artist,' but have the list sorted to ignore the 'The ' prefix.  For example, if a track has the artists "Bongo, Alamo, The Bills & Acro" in separate ARTIST tags, I'd like to see the list display:

Acro
Alamo
(The )Bills
Bongo

I enclosed 'The ' in parantheses as my initial attempt trimmed the text, but perhaps that can be optionally shown.  My intention is so that  I can browse songs an artist performed on without having the list show the entry "Bongo, Alamoa, The Bills, Acro" and have that track excluded from being browsed.

I don't know if that's any clearer, but it's okay.  I don't need my list sorted so, just thought it'd be nice if I were able to.

Thanks again for your efforts.

Cool beans, thanks for the option to rename the play list (and the better sorting, although i still wish it'd use the default one from general preferences wink wink wink). And the auto-activate option, that's rad too.

Questions, though:

I can't figure out what you mean by 'formatted using the first item in the list'. Can you explain?

This is cool i guess, but could you explain how somebody might use %_browser_panel% in a formatting string?


Also, feature request: Would it be possible to define a middle-click action for items in the browser panel? I personally would love it if middle-click sent the contents of the item to the active play list. Drag-and-drop would be an alternative, i guess it could accomplish that just as well. (I don't know if you can easily enable drag-and-drop using that list control, though, i'm not really a programming expert or whatever.)


Great job though, it's almost perfect.

$if( $or(  $strcmp(%album artist%,'Various Artists'),   $strcmp(%band%,'Various Artists')   ) ,''''Various Artists,%artist%)


puts the various artists at the top of the artists list. the '''' is there to help put it at the top.

For example if you wanted to make the browser playlist name dependant on the genre of the files... you could use "%genre%" as the browser playlist name and the "%genre%" tag will come from the first item in the list of handles for the items sent to the playlist, but its not necessariyl the item what will show up first in the playlist.

As a simple example, you might want to browse the items in a different playlist depending on what you are browsing... so you might do something like this: (note I havent tested this)

Code: [Select]
$if($less(%_browser_panel%,1),Mutliple Genres,$if($less(%_browse_panel%,2),Multiple Artist,Other)))

Hello!
How I get these browser panels aligned top of the foobar, now they are on left.
-> Now looks like this

I know what mimeryme is talking about and I'd like to be able to do the same thing. Basically, you would need to be able to use more than one string for each column so a single file could be defined by more than one item in the browser. I, for example, want to do this with the "mood" tag that I've been getting from AMG. You would have to parse the tag between commas. For example:
"Energetic,Confident,Aggressive" would be parsed and each mood would be seperated in the list:

Energetic
Confident
Aggressive

This would most likely make the browser very slow, but it would be useful for having multiple genres, artsts, etc. on a single track. The only way I could think to do this would be to create a new tagz character that would seperate the strings (maybe "+").

Bug.

Put %genre% in playlist name box, then deleted all the existing playlists.
When I click on an item in a panel I can see a new playlist (named from the genre) is created but no tracks are shown.
Select in a panel an item with different genre and you see a new playlist is created but not shown (I unchecked auto activation). If you activate the new playlist you see tracks in it and if you select the first one now you can see tracks in there too.

FQ. It would be nice if with a Ctrl down, the click on an item would add it (them) to the last activated (or maybe the last created) playlist.

Better would be if the *browser* playlist would be a separate Playlist view with its own tabs etc.

Thanks.

(Of course, as a PLT long time users, I wonder if, one day, we well have panels showing the different sublevels of a PLT node having PLT as the top panel...)

Am I missing something? (1600x1200)

Where can I find that filter thing?

Where do we have to put those strings about browser_panel?

Thanks

Yes, I was able to reproduce this.  It looks like the problem is this... If you create a playlist that becomes the active playlist by default (i.e. its the only playlist) but never directly activate it, it never displays its items.

I am implementing a work around so that if the browser playlsit is the only playlist it is automatically activated.

Hello
First of all, I have to thank you for your great job
about this plugin, very useful. It is my favourite / guest star plugin for 0.9

I have one suggestion :
Even if it is possible to change colors in the different lists,
there is no way to change fonts size / font.

Well I know that it is not very important for you,
but in my case, that should be a nice feature !

Another problem: the browser seems to take capitalization into account, when foobar does not. Any particular reason for this? It's annoying having three different items with different capitalizations..

Consider it a feature that helps you maintain consistant tagging.

Well is there any good reason for this? Nothing else in Foobar takes capitalization into account, why should this particular plugin? Shouldn't the standard foobar database stuff be, well, standard?

EDIT: Another issue: titleformatting doesn't take spaces into account for some reason. So ['('%date%')' ]%album% gives me '(date)album' instead of '(date) album'

@killmaster : use ['('%date%') ']%album

Is there any way to have the plugin faster? has this already been requested?  -- it's quite slow on a large collection of music...

Also another request : to allow click and drag to select multiple albums, etc.

Currently, Click - shift-click works, but not click-drag.

There should be an entry for foo_browser in the 0.9 components sticky.
The new sort ordering works great (makes it better than iTunes, especially for last-name-first artist sorting). Have one request though: any shot at allowing a user-defined font?

    * Selectable font
    * If only one playlist exists after find_or_create then activate it. Fixes bug that occurred when no playlists existed, one was created by browser, but not activated... the playlist would not get drawn...
    * When sorting by format, keep the list in order so that searches work faster...
