Here's a workaround...

Since search only searches the first column, you can add all the fields you want to be searched, but make them invisible.  If you're using columns with $char(9), it won't affect the relative width of the column.

Here's what I did...

Code: [Select]
//playlist bg color normally and selection color when selected makes it invisible

then make the columns...ex. the first column only shows the artist in the playlist, but search will search and show artist - title (album).

Code: [Select]
808080|FFFFFF| $caps2(%artist%) $get(INVIS) - %title% '('%album%')'$repeat($char(9),3)
808080|FFFFFF| $if(%title%,$caps2(%title%),%_filename%)$repeat($char(9),3)
808080|FFFFFF| $caps2(%album%)$repeat($char(9),3)
808080|FFFFFF| $if(%date%,$num(%date%,4),$get(INVIS)'0000') 808080|FFFFFF| $if(%tracknumber%,$num(%tracknumber%,2),$get(INVIS)'00') 808080|FFFFFF| [%genre%]$repeat($char(9),2)
