TagBox Tag Editing Plugin

Hey Arash! First of all...this component needs to be a standard one installed with foobar. It's exactly what foobar and I need!

I just wanted to add a vote for Tagbox to be able to edit tags from just a selection and not only a playlist.

Also, I read the whole thread here and didn't hear any mention of being able to save Tagbox's preferences in case I need to re-install. I saw the post about copying instead of cutting or replacing the component when customizing the UI, but what happens if I have to re-install foobar and Tagbox.

Thanks again for such an awesome component!

Thanks for this component.  I have been using it in combination with Facets and I have a problem.  I'm not sure exactly where the problem source is.  I have thousands of tracks and most of them had reasonable tags but something has happened since I setup Facets and TagBox because all the tag fields that are displayed in TagBox show that no tags are present - all empty tags.  I don't know if the tag values are really lost or just not being shown. 

The other issue and I'm not sure to what extent this is linked with the above problem is that I created a Custom tag with the multi-values property set so I could have my own custom tags as multiple tags in the same field and the use a pattern in a Facet panel to display and filter on those custom tags.  It works and I was very happy about that but if I start Tagbox from the context menu of a track, it doesn't show the Custom field/tag.  If, however, I start Tagbox from the View menu, it does show the Custom Tag.  The other odd thing is that I used TagBox preferences to setup the custom tag but now I look in Tagbox preference, the Custom Tag can not be seen.  However, in the Facet panel I created with the appropriate pattern still shows the custom tag and I can filter against these for the few tracks I experimented with.

Basically, I have serious problem of having apparently lost all tag info.  Some guidence and advice would be greatly appreciated.

I've re-created the Custom field in TagBox and checked in Preferences | Advanced to make sure the field can accept multiple values.  That was already set.  Now, when I bring up TagBox from a track's context menu, I do see the Custom field, which is good.  However, I can't append values in there.  Here's a screenshot.  You can see the multipe tags in the Facet panel called Custom but the corresponding Custom field in Tagbox shows the wrong options.  Any ideas?

Did you check in the prefrences "values currently in database" for the list values?

Edit
Your options should look like that:

Yes, that's the default and I didn't change it.

What I've done to try and figure out what the problem is, is to unload all the components and get back to plain vanila Foobar2000.  When I did that, I could see all the tag info as usual.  I then reloaded the components including Facets, Tagbox and so on.  Same problem.  When I bring up TagBox I can see the correct fields but they always show blank and the custom field can't be edit as per the screenshot.  If I click on the dropdown of the other fields like 'Artist', I get a big long list of Artists that I could choose from so the tag info is definitely stored but just not being associated with a track by TagBox.

Ok, i took a look and it seems to be a bug in TagBox when choosing "append" as tagging behaviour. It is just strange that in some cases (depending of field) it works and in some not.

Thanks for identifying that.  I was depending on that feature to make use of foobar and I can't see what other options I have if Tagbox was the only way to enable multiple values for a tag?  Maybe Aresh will fix it.

Cheers,
Zarty

I started from scratch again, this time reseting all preferences.  I now have TabBox working with Facets.  It displays existing tags and allows me to edit my custom tags.  All fine but it's a bit of concern that I don't know what the original problem was.

I found a new glitch that isn't serious but is annoying.. if you just open Tagbox and after a while close it via the red X at the top right corner of the Tagbox window, it closes as you would expect.  If, however, you edit a tag and then try to close Tagbox, it does close but also minimizes Foobar!

Cheers,
Zarty

Great Plugin! Thanks a lot! it will help tagging 12000+ trax. 2 years ago i did not come to an end with it. of course i also have a couple wishes or suggestions to make. thanx for considering!

1. i want to tag about 100 genres. someone suggested earlier the auto fill option (if one loads an album x of the artist y  he gets the suggestion to use the same genre tag as before with the same artist y)

2. an option to display all unspecified tags/metadata when they are present would help a lot with the cleanup process!

Hello,
may I know if TagBox works with selections? Some recent posts (q-stankovic on Jul 27 2011, jcclow from Oct 8 2011) imply that it doesn't work, on the other hand looks like Zarty dealt with TagBox not accepting selection from Facets, and he won  So I'm wondering if it's possible or not..

It just works with selections from playlist viewers. All other selection are not possible - even in the stand-alone window

Ok. Too bad for "now playing" (single playlist) configs

Hello all. I just noticed that I no longer can see anything in my Albumartist tag field. Almost no tracks have anything written there. However, if i write out Albumartist in for example EsPlaylist, then it shows there, so my tag info isn't lost...

Anyone may know why nothing shows in my Albumartist field in TagBox anymore? By the way, the correct tag syntax is: album artist, right? not: albumartist.

If the question still persists, switching the radio button in File > Preferences > Advanced > Tagging > Vorbis&Flac > Metadata writing mode or possibly even (un)checking File > Preferences > Advanced > Tagging > MP3 > ID3v2 rev. and quirks > Map TPE2 to Album Artist check box could help.

Forgot to answer, but yes, it did help. Thanks =).

Hi.

Thanks for the great plugin
Only one thing I can't seem to figure out...

Where can I find a list of all supported tags (i.e. title, album, rating)?
More specifically, I want one of my tags to show the file format. Foobar2000 has a tag called "Codec" but it doesn't show when I insert it as a tag name in TagBox.

Regardless of the context, users can only edit actual metadata fields, not file-derived technical/format-specific information or other special fields. The latter are not open to alteration, for the simple reason that they’re supposed to be invariant due to being deduced from the stream (or path, or etc.) itself.

Closing the Tagbox Panel minimizes my foobar (CUI) - anyone else having this problem? Is there a workaround for this quirk?

It's a pretty old bug but I doubt there's a workaround. I just got used to it, although I only use it rarely.

Thanks Daeron, thats a shame though - the tool is quite useful but the bug is pretty nerv-wrecking.

Yes, I know that. But my guess is that the maker of this plugin hardcoded quite a few keywords that can work as tags and that correlate to id3 tags.
I would love to know the list of all such keywords.

Also, I want to have the file format is the same place and the tag editing, just so I know the context of my editing.
J River Media Center, for example, does exactly that, and there non-editable fields are simply grayed out. But they are nonetheless present.

Thanks

Literally the best plugin ever.
I was just coming here to request simply the ability to autocomplete multiple people when picking composers.

I do have kind of an odd request, and it might be more complicated than it's worth, but that's the ability to add associations with composers.
For example, if I want to tag the composers from a group all at once, tagging them with their band's name and then being able to use that in tagging.

Can anyone think of a way that could be implemented? Would it be something I'd be better off developing just for me?

EDIT: Better, more practical request. A way to include values from other fields. For example, in my REMIXED BY meta, I want to list both values from other REMIXED BY properties, but also values from COMPOSER. Any chance for metadata formatting in the preset value field?
