Search for same

Made with Autohotkey, so this isn't a plugin but a hack as defined by Frank Bicking here
not recommended from moderation team

store queries and one click display results in album list

foobar2000 0.95 (default ui only)

set up:
copy search fo same.exe in foobar2000 folder
create  items , exemple:

label: Search for same Genre
path: C:\Program Files\foobar2000\search for same.exe "genre IS %genre%"
same artist
"C:\Program Files\foobar2000\search for same.exe" "artist HAS $stripprefix(%artist%,The,Les,La)"
clear search
"C:\Program Files\foobar2000\search for same.exe"

"C:\Program Files\foobar2000\search for same.ahk" "date IS %date%"

Indeed a very nice idea to use context menu of a given track to transfer a query to album list filter line - but there are also good reasons not to recommend such hacks. Maybe Peter or Frank Bicking could consider to add that as native feature to their plugins. However, there is also the opportunity to make a detour from database searchs "search for same" to "album list - custom view".

database searchs "search for same" to "album list - custom view" not work in the same way.
other possibility is use quick search but results is displayed in playlist...

Also if a lot of people request this feature,  maybe Peter or Frank Bicking could consider to add that as native feature to their plugins: but i can wait and i do myself search for same... (i can't make a plugin , i don't know c++)
