Playlist View Grouping Script - Columns UI

I've searched all morning trying to find any mention or example of a grouping script that
will allow me to show this:

ArtistName - AlbumName - Date -------(variable length line)---------- bitrate Kbps - codec

I'd like the bitrate, Kbps, and codec to be right justified.


I've got this:

$if2(%artist%,<no artist>)[ - %album%][ - %date%][ - %bitrate%] Kbps[ - %codec%]

but I'd like to show bitrate Kbps and codec at the far right of my playlist.

I was pretty sure I've seen this done before but I can't seem to find it now. I've read the  title formatting syntax page through and given my inferior scripting skills I can't figure anything out.

Can someone help?

Perhaps adding $tab() between the left and right part helps?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but won't the inclusion of bitrate and codec in the grouping also mean that ColumnsUI groups by that information? When dealing with VBR files, it will most certainly put every song into its own "group" then.

Edit: Yes it does. The $tab() works regarding the display, but every difference in the information given in the grouping script will trigger a new group. Grouping and group display seem to be indivisible at the moment.
Nothing is impossible if you don't need to do it yourself.

That worked but I lost the solid horizontal line between left and right parts.

I was so concerned about appearance that I forgot about practicality. Thanks everyone but I've discarded this
notion now.
