Media Library Search Replacement
HI.

Just wondering if there is an add-on/component available allows me to do away with remembering syntaxes.

Ideally something that might a drop down menu with all the different possible fields right there, so i could just select %whatever% IS %whatever% instead of having to type these out each time.

Does anything like this or similar exist?

I don't like the idea because of a simple reason: a huge list with cryptic search queries is not human readable enough. However, foo_quicksearch will allow you to store favourites in its context menu and also offers a history menu which size is definable in the preferences. This component shows the search results in a playlist.

How about an Autoplaylist? It'll let you save a search to a playlist, that automatically updates every time the library changes. You can also name the Autoplaylist whatever you like.
1. Attack the argument, not the arguer.
2. Assume good faith.

how about foo_dbsearch? link's here: Documentation

you can add your favorite tags to the list of queries, I use
Code: [Select]
[$meta(artist)]|[$meta(album)]|[$meta(title)]|[%genre%][:%mood%]|[$meta(date)]|[$meta(rating)]|[$meta(composer)]|[%album artist%][%filename%]$if(%rating%,nxx)$if(%setlist%,sxx)
but you can use your %whatever% IS %whatever% changing the syntax to the old titleformat thingy
