I'm having a problem with genre searching.

I have, say, three albums.

One album is tagged "Jazz; Hip Hop"
Album2 is tagged "Jazz"
And Album3 is tagged "J-Jazz" (Japanese Jazz)

When I search "Jazz", I want Album1 and Album2 to show up. But not Album 3.

If I do "match all", all three albums show up. If I do exact, only Album2 shows up.

What do I do to fix this? I thought "Jazz; Hip Hop" should be treated as "Jazz" and "Hip Hop" not the singular tag "Jazz; Hip Hop"

Any insight on how to fix this

Hello!

Would it be possible to add option to "select all" on focus? I mean if you click on the search box (or use shortcut), the edit box would automatically select the input (like if you press Ctrl+A). We already have option to clear the field after successful search, but this requires hitting Enter if autosearch is enabled. It is just a little detail, but it would be great feature for me, since I use shortcut to focus the search bar, but I often forget to clear the previous the input. This way it would be rewritten with new input. Also this way it would be still possible to edit the old input since it would not be cleared, just selected.
What do you think about this?

Thank you very much for reply.

Hello folks, I can't seem to get quicksearch to show up in my toolbar options despite having it installed.

You can only do that with Columns UI, unfortunately. You'd have to add it as a separate element in the Default UI.

I'm trying to create a context item that will do a quicksearch for the same artist with ratings. I tried the following but it seems something is going on with the ratings portion that it doesn't like. I've tried with and without parens and I get results that pretty much ignore the ratings. Any ideas?

Code: [Select]
%artist% AND %rating% GREATER 3

Definitely something weird happening with %rating%. When performing any search regarding %rating% via the context menu, it results in only tracks with the rating of the file you engaged the context menu on being returned. Thus only tracks with a rating of 4 will be returned if you right-clicked on a track with a rating of 4.

If you append the search string to the playlist name, you'll see 4 GREATER 3, 4 LESS 3, 4 IS 3, 4 PRESENT, 4 MISSING, etc.

Try %artist% %rating%. It will search for the same artist and rating than the current selection (unless rating is empty, in which case it will return all tracks from the same artist).

So... what wolfsong wanted isn't possible because, obviously, searches via the context menu can only use the value of the specified variable of the selected track. I should've realized that. I really shouldn't post at one in the morning when I'm  .

In that case it's going to produce the same results as just %artist% so there would be no way to just find rated tracks by artist.

If the selected track is unrated, then he is correct that it is basically the same as using %artist% because %rating% is ignored and all tracks, rated and unrated, by that artist are returned.

I'd argue that it would be better if %rating% returned all rated tracks if the selected track is rated and all unrated tracks if it isn't (esp. when it is used in conjunction with other variables, if that is even possible).

In that case it's going to produce the same results as just %artist% so there would be no way to just find rated tracks by artist.

Searches via the context menu are essentially IS queries. If you do a search using %artist% %rating%, then it searches for all tracks where those tags match the selected track with the exception that if %rating% doesn't exist for the selected track, then %rating% is ignored, e.g.:

If the artist is "The Beatles" and the rating is "4" for the selected track, then it returns all tracks where the artist is "The Beatles" and the rating is "4".

If the artist is "The Beatles" and the track is not rated, then it returns all tracks where the artist is "The Beatles".

Then use %artist%[-%rating%]. It should produce the desired results.

Even this does not produce the desired results. All tracks by the artist are returned, not just tracks that a rated. It doesn't seem to matter what is used, this is always the case.

I came to find this thread just to ask for this, I have used this component for years and it is basically perfect apart from this sore usability problem.

Hi there, absolute great plugin, love it!

Just two features that would go hand-in-hand that I would like to request if possible...,

Firstly, can you add a checkbox to Preferences > Media Library > Quick Search: "Start playback when sending search results to playlist"
And also, is there any way of keeping the focus on the Quick Search toolbar?

My aim is just to type in a search, hit enter, it plays that/those track(s) and then stops. Then I just type in my next search, hit enter, etc.


Thanks for your help!

This plugin is awesome, but i have some future request:

-Add transparent background for CUI-DUI
-Add custom bitmap (foobar)relative path (in that way we will not lose bit. image if move foobar on other location).
-Add tekst in input box: ''Quick Search'' when cursor leave box
-Add preset for search genre ''pop, rock, soul.. etc..

Did some of this can be implemented?
Thanks for this great plugin..

Is this what you need? -- "If "Set Focus to search results" is not selected in the preferences page, navigation in the selected results is available through the "Up" and "Down" arrow keys."

Yes, exactly. But why would someone bind another two keys instead using same "enter" key to navigate through results ?
