Anyway, does anybody know if it is possible for "Quicksearch for same" to work ONLY on the current playlist rather than the entire media library?
Not possible ...

Hey :). NEMO7538 you did some pretty cool stuff with this component. Please tell me how I can send some appreciation your way. I'm re-hauling my Foobar UI and this component of yours will allow me to do some pretty damn awesome stuff :D.

I sent you a PM as well about this :).

I'm using multiple quicksearch toolbars. Would be...

- SUPER COOL if we could set a keyboard shortcut for activating an individual QuickSearch textbox. This would mean that each QuickSearch has a "name" property so that they can be identified in the Preferences menu.

- Really great if the QuickSearch could be resized to less than 120 px, which seems to be the current limitation. I'm trying to resize a QuickSearch to about 50 px.

I'm willing to work for this, either by money or helping coding if a partnership is possible :)

I figured out my own question, the easiest thing for searching is to use F3 and bring up the Playlist search. That is way easier than creating new playlists with this component... unless of course that is what you wanted.

It may be possible to hack using a query (please enlighten me!), but:
- multivalued fields. On the to do list. But, is it possible to hack a search for substring? E.g., where quicksearch for same artist returns all entries for which %artist% HAS <the selected reference track's artist field>. (Uh, is there a code for the reference track's field value?)
- multi-field hits. So that, e.g. quicksearch for same GENRE yields a matching GENRE but also searches for files for which the STYLE tag matches the reference's GENRE?

And then this:

....
The whole and simple idea is to consider the string of a special search for same query as group and to check if a multiple selection consists of only one group. If yes then a senseful search operation is possible and if not the user could be informed about that in a popup window.
I already thought about it and may implement it some day

Can I bump this too?

Hi!

Am I missing something or the "%artis% HAS red AND %album% HAS stadium" stuff from the screenshot doesn't work at all?

Nevermind. I found that I had to enable the "Automatic switch to extended search" option.

Is it possible for "Quicksearch for same/" to use values from one tag (%similar% in my case) to perform search in another (%artist%)? For instance, would've like to tag an artist with 5-6 similar ones, separated with ;, then make buttons in PSS (or WSH or JScript), that when clicked would perform an artist search for them and quickly jump to that playlist.

Why not simply tag them with the same genre and search for that (either via Quicksearch or Facets/CUI Filter panels/Album list)? Individually tagging every artist with 5 other artists sounds like a ton of work for something you could achieve much easier.

I enjoy tagging, so it's not an arduous task for me. Already have a lot of custom tags. Might be long work though, but I'm in no hurry, can tag whenever I listen.

Tagging them all with the same genre doesn't really work for me, how I imagined the layout, and it's too imprecise. Basically, I have an artist panel with all the info about them, biography, ratings, play counts, images, discography, etc. And now wanted to add these similar artists as clickable textbuttons, that could just be used to quickly jump from artist to (similar) artist. Imagined it something like browsing wikipedia and clicking on links that lead to other mentioned artists.

EDIT: Maybe something like marc2003's last.fm similar artists Jscript. Just, wanted to limit it to artists I have in my library, and for new playlist to be made instead of link to last.fm artist page.

The current version has that option...

Excellent, got the new version, and works great. No need for tagging as well now, even though now I get mass of artists that are currently not in my library. But hey, they can get there sometime. :)

Just wondering, any way to auto-delete other autoplaylists that are generated during browsing?

Thanks a bunch!

I have something made like that in my own config. See screenshot.

The green frame shows similar artists of played artist based on multivalue tag %similar artist%. It shows which one are present in the library and which ones aren't.  Those that are present, thanks to some help from marc2003 (transparent jscript over the artist names), they are clickable and will create an playlist of clicked artist.

That's brilliant, @jazzthieve ! Love the idea, and would love to know how you did it, as even though marc's last.fm similar artists works fine for me now (though, won't display anything for some quite known bands), I have in future plans more crazy ideas, like %similar_albums% as well. ;)

If marc2003's solution is sufficient for you I would say to stick with that since my solution is a bit more involved and needs other components (wilb's biography jscript) and uses some 'dirty' but workable solutions.
If you're still interested I would suggest to start a new thread since this isn't relevant to the foo_quicksearch topic anymore.
