Title: TagBox Tag Editing Plugin
Post by: Arash on 2010-05-26 08:48:50
Hello Everybody,

I needed something like this but couldn't find any so I wrote it myself!
It is something like an editable "properties" window in a UI element with "quick tagger" like features and a little more.

Here is more info and download link (http://arash.dejkam.com/software/tagbox/).

Check it out and let me know what you think

it seemed to me that i cannot find the TagBox in the Panels....but the TagBox exist in my View menu...why?

Post by: 2E7AH on 2010-05-26 09:52:44
because I guess it's DUI element and not CUI panel

some issues to throw:

- input boxes are not correctly right aligned
- drop-down on windows 7 doesn't look good


thanks

I'm on XP, actually this is the first time I'm seeing a screenshot of TagBox in Windows 7. I don't know what I can do about the drop-downs if Windows 7 shows them like that but I should take care of the alignment thing. I need to install 7 in a virtual machine and see what I can do.

after pressing Ctrl or Shift this dialog pops:


That a seems to be a debug message which interestingly doesn't show up in XP, that's why I missed it. Thanks for letting me know. I fixed it (hopefully).

Couldn't just increasing the height by 2px solve the problem?
And now when I'm replying again, I wanted to know if it's possible to incorporate auto-complete feature, like properties dialog does

So you have problem with the spacing of the drop-downs! I thought you don't like the Windows 7 style  The thing is I have tried to make the UI Element as compact as possible. My own TagBox has 28 fields, increasing the spacing by 2px makes the element 56 pixels taller and that's too much. But maybe I can make the field spacing optional through the preferences page later.

I like the idea of auto-complete feature but I don't know how's that usually implemented so I need to do some research. On to-do list.

BTW I fixed the right alignment problem too.

yeah, I was thinking about spacing generaly because they overlap, and you were thinking about it style which I agree sometimes looks ugly
so, how about combobox like below, with check boxes, which would be perfect for multivalue fields IMO (thou they'll overlap again on Windows 7 at current height):

Hey, thanks for this great plugin!
It's more than useful!

Here are some thoughts:

1. I got Hotkeys without Ctrl modifier like 1-5 for rating or "O" for open folders.
These Hotkeys interfere with the tag editing.

2. I try to access entries from the selectlist with the first letter. Unfortunatly it grabs just the first entry with the letter and the list is closed.
would be nice if the selection stays the list open, to choose the right value manually.

cheers m.

Oh sorry that's my fault! download link should be working now, check it again.

@2E7AH I like the drop-down with check boxes too. Thanks for the idea.

Another point: I have no interest to use TagBox as a ui-element - i prefer a standalone window (like "Properties"). You can call this under main menu -> view. I would like to request the same way like properties window for that case: making a selection, going to context menu, calling TagBox, applying changes.

Good idea and great work! Thanks a lot :-)

Just a few thoughts:

Plugin
- Adding vertical/horizontal scroll (with scroll indicators) would help or better said is essential (for those who do not wanna spend so much space for the panel)
- Ability to customize the headers colors (just a gimmick ;-) )

Website
- How about a ToDo-List (and maybe a declined-requests-list) on the bottom of the page
    --> this would prevent us (re-)requesting stuff you already have on your To-Do list or definitely do not want to implement

Have you hardcoded the line height in pixels? At least it looks that way, if you try high-DPI mode in Windows.

hello
do you plan to make it compatible to CUI aswell one day?
surely not in the near futur, but later?
Title: TagBox Tag Editing Plugin
Post by: Arash on 2010-05-27 10:17:28
Well! When developing this plugin I needed to get to something working as soon as possible so the last thing on my mind was cosmetic issues. Many of you have good points I'll try to address issues you mentioned as I further develop TagBox.

Some questions for developers:
1. If I want to use foobar's default colors am I stuck with four colors (text/background/selection/highlight)? what about that light gray that every other row in the playlist use? what's that called?

2. I'm still not sure if I'm going to use the properties window grid style but to make sure that's a list control with dynamically overlaied edit boxes, right?

I'll take care of that.

@2E7AH The nonalignment problem was present in XP too so I literally asked the program to add 2px to edit boxes with drop-down that should solve the problem. I suspect your browser downloaded the old package from its cache or something (same name, same size). Hope someone else with Windows7 and a fresh download can let us know if the problem is still there.

What is the state of CUI? When I first used foobar2000 I thought perhaps CUI is a redundant thing that will be phased out in favor of DUI so I never used it.
Title: TagBox Tag Editing Plugin
Post by: 2E7AH on 2010-05-27 11:03:02
it's fine now

and CUI isn't redundant of course, it's actively developed pacing foobar changes, thou it has Item properties panel with in-line tag editing (similar to your component only it doesn't have drop-down box  ) + it has in-line playlist tag editing capabilities

Hello Everybody,

Thanks for all your suggestions and ideas.

TagBox 0.110 is released with some improvements. Check it out and let me know what you think about the changes:

    * Many visual improvements to make TagBox better blend in visually with other parts of foobar2000.
    * Edit boxes' height is now adjusted based on the font used.
    * Labels' width is automatically set based on the length of the text.
    * Some minor bug fixes.

About the CUI panel, since I don't use CUI myself I rather not try to make TagBox compatible with it. In my experience when you don't use some feature in your software yourself it usually ends up being broken and buggy. I hope someone else make something similar to TagBox for CUI.

Hello,

This plug-in is one of the ones I was waiting for until Foobar 0.8, cause this plug-in permits to manage easily personal tags (I have more than 20 tags perso).

In order to be perfect (for my own use      ), I have some suggestions :
1) Give the ability to display or not some values or some tags depending on specified conditions i.e. : $if($stricmp(%genre%,jazz),1,0)
This can permit to display tags or a panel of value depending on an other tag value (i.e. to display the styles corresponding to a given genre or to display the countries of a given continent)

2) Add the ability to access the tags in the contextual menu : in order to access them more quickly (in a form Textbox/Tagname/List of values). The top of the top option will be to be able to change the display order & level exactly as the old FB 0.8 QuickTag

3) Give the possibility to interpret FB script in the value field (same as the old fashioned QuickTag), in order to be able to put in place a rating increment, decrement, or to manage easily binary tags (i.e. : $if(%world%,,1) )

So, even if you are not interested by my ideas, thank you for this great job, it's an essential plug-in for personal tags management.

Regarding autocomplete, you can use fb2k's library_meta_autocomplete service and Windows shell's IAutocomplete.
Title: TagBox Tag Editing Plugin
Post by: Arash on 2010-07-20 09:37:12
@SoulMan: I think I'll add the "launch through context-menu" option, there are many requests for this. About your other requests I should do some more thinking to see if it is possible to add those to tagbox with its current layout and concept.

@Yirkha: Thanks for the info, auto complete is on to-do list too.

Hello Everyone,

Here comes version 0.150, comments and ideas are welcome as always.

TagBox download page (http://arash.dejkam.com/software/tagbox/)

New in this version:
    *  Standalone TagBox window accessible through context menu.
    * Auto Complete.
    * UI element configuration becomes per-instance. From now on settings in preferences page only affects the stand alone window.
    * Again some color changes.
    * Bug Fix: You couldn't type # in edit boxes.

@muzack: I tried to fix the problem with keyboard shortcuts without modifiers but when I tried to define one of those foobar gave me a big warning that this may conflict with program's normal functionality. So now I'm not quite sure if I should go into trouble of working around that. More experienced foobar developer's advice on this is welcome.

@Yirkha: library_meta_autocomplete (that I'm using right now) provides data for a very limited number of tags. Do you know if this is gonna expand to other tags and custom tags in future? or should I go on an make my own "remember the last n values entered" kind of implementation as a supplement to library_meta_autocomplete?

It says it's missing some file.

The file is also smaller, so it seems to be some dependency that's missing.

Post by: Arash on 2010-08-02 14:22:06
My development environment is somewhat different from the previous release: WinXP 32bit -> Win7 64bit, VS2009 -> VS2010. I thought the smaller file size might be due to new VS2010 optimizations.

The plugin is not generating any error messages on my Win7 machine, are you using XP?

See [font= "Courier New"]CTypableWindowScope[/font], it utilizes an API to limit handling of such keyboard shortcuts in scenarios like this. I think, I've never used it.

It uses configuration from Preferences > Advanced > Display/Autocomplete fields (syntax should be self-explanatory).

That's because as you can see the font size in XP is smaller so the vertical space available between fields is smaller, I did spend a lot of time trying to style the comboboxes to make them look better in such small spaces but this was the best I could come up with. again any suggestion is welcome.

Thanks for the technical info. What I meant was maybe because foobar2000 officially discourages using hotkeys without modifiers I shouldn't work around the problem. But it wouldn't harm anybody, I'll give it another try later when I have free time.

That should do it. Thanks, It's interesting after years of using foobar2000 there are still many things it has that I have never noticed, like I just found out that the "position in selection -> track number" functionality that I added to TagBox, foobar already has it in the properties window.

Version 0.170 released:

TagBox Download Page (http://arash.dejkam.com/software/tagbox/)

new features:

    *  Capitalization Correction: The difference between this and the "capitalize" function in foobar2000's properties window is that TagBox tries to follow the rules like "don't capitialize prepositions (4 letters or less) unless they are the first or last words", etc...
    * Get tags from filename.
    * Functions that modify tags like the "Correct Capitalization" or "Auto Track Number" are now accessible through tag labels' right click menu.
    * Changes made by above functions are no longer immediately applied to file, you need to click the "Apply Changes" button.
    * Solved the conflict with keyboard shortcuts without modifiers.
    * Standalone window's width is also remembered along with position.
    * Bug Fix: When the Standalone window was resized contents were not resized.

Let me know what you think.

Thank you for the update!

There is a fundemental problem i have with Tag Box. While it only makes sense that the uielement of tagbox  shows the content of current selection on the other side exactly this drives me crazy in some situations. During my work with tag box i am not able anymore to start manually another track for playback without loosing selection and therefore the content of tagbox. But mainly if during playback options like "cursor follow playback" are enabled you don't even have a chance to avoid automatic change of content. As i requested the standalone tagbox window in post #12  i also expressed my hope that this standalone window would act like properties window: keeping the content on selection on wich "edit tags" command was applied regardless if selection changes. I hope it is clear what i mean.

The comboboxes really look ugly and the vertical space also look uncommon with its little vertical space! I think the vertical space in properties dialogue is ideal: it looks more friendly and doesn't need so much more height ( i think the relation is 7 to 8,5).

By the way: Could you disble the vertical resizing of the window as it doesn't make sense at at all. Either you hide the fields and aren't able to scroll inside the window when you decrease the size or you have a huge are just for the apply button when increasing.

I personally always have "Cursor Follows Playback" enabled because one important thing that I use TagBox for is to rate tracks so I want TagBox to always show tags of the currently playing track, also as you mentioned making the UI element remember the selection doesn't make sense. But I think it is a good idea to make the standalone window remember the selection in future (as an option, still some people may want TagBox window to update when selection changes).

Actually I like the look and feel of TagBox (in a UI element) more than the properties window but I agree the standalone window doesn't look that good because of the small DEFAULT_GUI_FONT it uses. Maybe I can change or increase the size of the font later to make it look better.

I think that is possible but not really necessary, if you close and reopen the window the height will reset to fit the contents.

Nice to hear that! 

I have a question and a request:
What does the checkbox option "active" means?
Could we have as an alternative to manually entered predefined values the option to have an automatically updating list in dropdown box with all values of a certain field present in library?

Maybe it is a good idea to let it look like selection properties. Means: no grid view but alternate colors and column headers - that seems more friendly to me. Also the apply button could be removed out of the background colored area to the bottom.

If you check "active" the change caused by using a predefined value is immediately applied to the file (No need to click "Apply Changes" button).

Thanks for your nice component!

"active" check box may be renamed to "immediately apply"
BTW This option seems to fail on my system (vista32, fb 1.1. beta2).

Some remarks:

I'm looking for a convenient way to fill up my multi value performer tag in my collection of classical music. TagBox's feature of successively appending values to a multi value field could be very useful in such cases. So I agree with q-stankovic's and muzack's requests:

I'm looking for a convenient way to fill up my multi value performer tag in my collection of classical music. TagBox's feature of successively appending values to a multi value field could be very useful in such cases. So I agree with q-stankovic's and muzack's requests:

Could we have as an alternative to manually entered predefined values the option to have an automatically updating list in dropdown box with all values of a certain field present in library?


Doesn't the auto-complete feature added in version 0.170 do exactly that?

I try to access entries from the selectlist with the first letter. Unfortunatly it grabs just the first entry with the letter and the list is closed.


I forgot again to see what I can do about this. Wrote it down for next release
Why did you add a submenu "Edit Tags" to the context menu?

That launches the standalone window.

That's TagBox's normal behaviour.

Why have an option to edit values that are saved but not reflected in the actual interface? That doesn't make sense. Why even have the configuration screen at all?

We are not talking about the field which requires at least one letter to open the popupmenu but the content of dropdown box.

Any chance to see 2E7AH's idea (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=81194&view=findpost&p=706908) implemented. Not only that we could get rid of ugly dropdown boxes but such a menu would offer a great improved usability as long as a check doesn't close the menu: many tags could be checked in short time without opening dropdown box again and again. Sure makes only sense if tagging behaviour is not sent to "replace".

Autumn, i hope you don't feel annoyed to hear all the time the same stuff about GUI and aesthetical points but i can't help myself: these controlboxes are really ugly. Somehow they won't fit in the window/ui-element in a nice way. They are obtrusive, have different lenths, ...

I don't know how difficult it could be to use another control. In facets component i found following unobtrusive triangle at the end of line which opens a menu. Maybe there are other possibilities too.

Although I have done quite a bit of UI programming I'm not a specialist in this area so any fancy thing I want to do I have to do a lot of reading and research first.
Also UI programming is not as easy as it seems. There is no "Gallery of Controls" like you think there is. There are a few controls like edit boxes or labels or comboboxes but anything more fancy you have to do it yourself, and believe me it's not easy. Actually I'd say serious UI programming is one of the difficult fields in computer programming.
So if I find more free time I'll gladly try to improve TagBox visually but functionality has priority for me.

What about this, no redesign of dropdown box needed, just a behaviour change of fields which are multivalue and autocomplete:
1. Type first letters of desired value in tag field
2. Select value from popping up autocomplete list
3. Type semicolon (or click a button)
4. Again type first letters of additional value
5. Again autocomplete list is launched
6. Select another value
I miss something like that in foobar core.

Some remarks on the documentation:
Quote
• Pressing Enter applies the changes.

When selecting item from autocomplete list no Enter needed.

Quote
• Pressing Ctrl+Enter or Ctrl+Down when only one track is selected applies the change and moves the selection to next track in play list.

Ctrl+Down doesn't work with autocomplete fields. Ctrl+Enter should be recommended.

Quote
• There is a context menu (tracks' right click menu) option to set track number to track's index in current selection.

The phrase "tracks' right click menu" is misleading.

Quote
• Right-Click any tag's label to access more options like "Auto Track Number", "Correct Capitalization" or "Filename -> Tag" functions.

Should be merged with previous instruction.

Quote
• You can enter an alternative tag for auto-complete to for example have a custom "guitar player" tag but get the list of suggestions from the "artist" tag.

I wouldn't use it, cause it's a core feature ("+"-seperated fields in Preferences › Advanced › Display › Autocomplete fields)

I'm glad someone else saw a problem since the rating tag was exactly what I was having problems with. Oddly the problem I saw was only in the UI Element. If I opened the dialog from the context menu, the values I entered in the preferences were there.

Of course the predefined values feature was not designed to be used like that.

Here comes a major upgrade, a lot of things have changed so take a good look around and let me know what you think

Version 0.200:
Download page (http://arash.dejkam.com/software/tagbox/)

Changes:
    *  Complete redesign of the interface.
    * Auto suggestion and drop-down list values are now combined.
    * You can now select "values currently in database" as well as "predefined values" for the drop-down list.
    * "CheckBox" behavior which adds checkboxes to drop-down list values.
    * A lock button to lock the selection whenever needed.
    * The down arrow key opens the drop-down menu instead of moving the selection down.
    * PgUp/PgDown move the selection up and down to compensate for the above change.
    * Auto suggestion now works properly when entering multiple values.
    * TagBox group in context-menu becomes a single item.
    * There is no right click menu any more, tag specific options move to the drop-down list and global options move to the tools.

I did some testing and here are some smaller issues:

1. "Values currently in database" seems only to work if the field is added in advanced preferences as an autocomplete field - a bug or by design?

2. The status of "lock selection" in stand alone window is not remembered

3. If multiple items are selected and dropdown list for a field with behaviour "checkbox" is opened then you will see the already present tags of the selection checked only if each    track has the identical tags. Would be great to see in every case the present tags - it is self-evident that a special sign apart from check-sign is needed to show a tag that is only present in a part of selection. Usually a filled rectangle is used for such a purpose.

It is not supposed to "remember" the state. But I'll add an option in the preferences page later to let you always start the standalone window in locked mode (which is what you want I think).

Zelphar, that's how it should work. TagBox writes the rating to the file whereas playback statistics stores the values in a database. To retreive the rating from file use $meta(rating) instead of %rating% wich fetches the rating from database.

Yes, will be fixed, thanks for pointing out.

What about library_manager::get_all_items() or enum_items() and collect the values yourself? I bet library_meta_autocomplete doesn't do much else.

Are you sure about this? library_meta_autocomplete gets the data almost instantaneously out of my relatively large db so it seemed very unlikely to me that it go through all the entries each time and not use some kind of stored index or something. I am also very curious to know how facets retrieves the data. Maybe because I come from server-side programming I'm a little paranoid about such performance issues which is not necessary here.
Title: TagBox Tag Editing Plugin

Maybe. Don't be afraid, try stuff like this first and search for optimizations only if it sucks performance wise. Note the whole library is stored in RAM all the time. A lot of functions you might take as some optimized internal core calls (e.g. query filter) are IMO just enumerating through all the ML items like I suggested here too.

I'm more concerned about scalability (processing time going up linearly as the database grows) than things running fast right now on my own machine with my current database.
I really hope Peter or Frank could comment on this.

A small request concerning the tag behaviour:

If you've choosen "checkbox" as tag-behaviour that is very easy to see on the checkboxes in the dropdownlist. But it is not remarkable if "append", "front insert" or "replace" is settted - you have to trust your memory. Would you consider to make it anyway recognizable. A simple suggestion: you could place the info in the bottom left corner of dropdownlist and use a greyed out font color for the text. Also the immediate applying could be shown too: maybe in brackets beside the info. I mean some thing like this: replace (apply immediately)

Or an icon with tooltip, I may even be able to allow on the fly changing of the behavior using a small drop-down menu (I have to think it through though to see if there is any technical obstacle). Good idea, added to to-do.

I think that would be over the top and is not worth the whole effort you would have to put in that. Generally we have setted senseful options in the preferences: rating has replace as tagbehaviour and that is somehow selfevident. Also other fields are evident. I just thought about a simple reminder for other fields where it is not clear. As there are many possibilities to override the behaviour (clear all tags in drop down box or using field itself ...) i think it is not necessary to make it more complex than needed.

Hello Arash!

Due to the design of the preferences window it is sometimes a pain to work with it as you don't have a good overview about all your fields. If you like to edit one field you have to scroll the whole list. The reordering of fields is by far the hardest task. It would be an ease when the labels would be organized in a seperated list.

Here a quick mockup how it could look like:

I already had something similar (but a little more interesting) in mind for the config window, but how many times is one going to use that window? I think the config page in it's current state is quite usable revamping it would be a step forward but it's just not worth the time, I can spend my time doing more interesting things that I have in mind for TagBox.

Well, i used it so far often but i guess because i'm still in stage of experimenting - means: should i prefer quick tagger over TagBox with fields of tagbehaviour "replace"? multiple tabs with Tagbox or standalone window? But yes, you're right: once i got it i won't use it frequently in regard to the purposes i mentioned above. However, one point that i didn't say or showed in the mock-up is an improved list for values. Changing values will happen quite often.


... I can spend my time doing more interesting things that I have in mind for TagBox ...

TagBox seems for me to be nearly complete. So i am very curios ... 
Title: TagBox Tag Editing Plugin

hi!

i really like your component, but i have two issues:

1. a minor one: i can't figure out what the behavior drop down menu is about...it's the behavior of ? furthermore i have no clue what the 4 offered options could mean...
i'd really appreciate some enlightenment

2. no matter what tag, no matter what file, foobar crashes whenever a whole tag is removed at once (using either the delete key or ctrl+x or whatever...)
this is reproducable...i crashed foobar about 15 times in a row with different files, tags and keys

those are the components i use:

[quote author=q-stankovic link=msg=727203 date=1287257632]TagBox seems for me to be nearly complete. So i am very curios ...  [/quote]
I thought version 0.1 was complete    but you keep using a software and new needs just emerge out of nowhere. The fact that I'm a heavy user myself helps TagBox go forward not to mention great suggestions I got from you users here.
I don't have any ground breaking changes in mind, but there is still a lot of room for small improvements and new features here and there.

1. a minor one: i can't figure out what the behavior drop down menu is about...it's the behavior of ? furthermore i have no clue what the 4 offered options could mean...
i'd really appreciate some enlightenment

It defines how TagBox deals with current tag values when you choose a new one using the drop-down list of values. I don't know how to explain it more, select each and do some experiment to see the difference.
2. no matter what tag, no matter what file, foobar crashes whenever a whole tag is removed at once (using either the delete key or ctrl+x or whatever...)
this is reproducable...i crashed foobar about 15 times in a row with different files, tags and keys
.
Thanks for reporting this, it looks like to be a bug (Windows XP only). I'll fix it in next release.
A suggestion: You don't need to send the huge crash report here, when the crash dialog pops up just click on "report" button and the report will be sent to foobar2000 website and developers can see it.

    * Bug Fix: Crash when clearing a tag (Windows XP only).
    * Bug Fix: drop-down list wouldn't close if you click outside foobar2000 window (after 0.207 update).

A small creature in need of being squashed? TagBox outputs 'Sample component: on_init()' to the log file on start up. Apparently this is an artifact of the example code from the fb2k SDK.

You can use it but not as a panel, I think developer already said it will not support CUI as he doesnt use it.
I too wish someone would port/copy this out to a Columns UI Panel... :/

I am also using this component for display purposes.
When nothing is selected, TagBox shows nothing.
Could you please implement an option for showing metadata of the track which is currently playing,
even if nothing is selected?

I have a small suggestion for this which I would absolutely LOVE to see: could you implement some way to add or remove album artwork in the tags?

the background on this is that I absolutely cannot stand it when I see mp3s with embedded artwork and I hate having to open up iTunes to remove the cover art when it'd be amazing if foobar had image addition/removal built in to it!

so do you know if it is possible to implement some way to at least remove any associated music file artwork from the tags? i don't really need a tool that can add artwork, but simply one that can remove it. 

I think artwork removal/adding is something that should have been a part of foobar from the beginning in the 'Properties' dialog box but I don't know if that'd ever be implemented.

thanks a bunch for your time and consideration, I've been using this tool a bit now and it works for me well! I just have that one suggestion though!

I do have this need myself I use mp3tag to remove embedded cover art instead of itunes though (much lighter and free). Unfortunately the foobar2000's public API doesn't provide any means to manipulate the embedded cover art yet but there is some kind of place holder for it so it's most likely planned for future. As soon as this functionality is added to the API I'll consider adding it to TagBox if it's not added to foobar2000 as core feature.

you can remove embedded album art using the standard properties dialog. just highlight all fields, right click>copy, then use the tools button>remove tags. now right click>paste fields and this puts all your tags back from the clipboard.

A request:

Often enough a value i like to add is not present: neither in database nor in a predefined value list. A field in the left part of the box where an value can be typed in would be ideal - maybe (in case of predefined lists) the value could be added to the list.

EDIT:

You could let Tagbox act as a selection viewer. So (depending on general setting in preferences -> display) it would either always show the now playing track ("prefer current playing track") or show the now playing track only if nothing else is selected ("prefer current selection"). However, that makes only sense for the ui-element but not for the standalone window.

Thank you for the great plugin!

I while ago I encountered crash caused by foo_tagbox.dll 0.208. I submitted the crash report.

I also noticed that the keyboard combination Ctrl+Down which should (according to the documentation (http://arash.dejkam.com/software/tagbox/)) apply changes and move to the next track actually opens context menu (the same way as simply pressing Down does).

Hello all.

I was wondering about if you can add other tags than those already existing from the start in TagBox. What I need is an Album Art field, but how do I create one?

I do not use this, but loaded it in order to help. Are you kidding with this question?
He clearly has an add button in his configuration options whether you use it as a stand alone window or as an embedded ui element.
Just add album artist with the space if you are trying to gain access to foobars field.

But if I set it like this: http://spunit.tk/x/albumartist.png (http://spunit.tk/x/albumartist.png), then Albumartist field in the file becomes empty, and not what I wrote in TagBox. Am I doing it wrong? Btw I'm a noob.

How you do know the field is empty?  What are you doing to confirm? By the way....be careful with your spelling.  album artist with a space does not equal albumartist. I just added a field called test...used the plugin to add testdata as data to a song and field was populated just fine. If you are still having trouble you will need to clearly specify step by step what you are doing.

EDIT:All your imagine shows is that you have told the plugin to add a filed name album artist with a name album artist to its visual element so that it can edit said field. What did you do to add data.

My bad, it's not the Albumartist that is wrong... When I for example set a different Artist, all the metadata in the file becomes all empty. It shows fine in foobar, but it makes the file all empty... Here's a picture showing what happens if i set field 'Artist' (in a file full of metadata) to 'Whatever': http://spunit.tk/x/weird.jpg (http://spunit.tk/x/weird.jpg). Thanks for your patience.

Nothing is disappearing. If metadata shows somewhere, in this case Foobar, then it exists. It does not temporarily disappear when you use explorer to view the data and reappear when using foobar.

Here is what is happening. You change a tag in foobar and it rewrites the file and updates the tag using the most recent version of IDV2. Explorer can not read this version. If this is troubling to you, Preferences>Advanced>Tagging>Tick compatibility mode. Otherwise, not do worry about it. Your tags, as evidence by viewing in foobar or near everything except explorer are intact.

Thanks a lot, the mode in Preferences did the trick. I think understand what you said, but I want it to be right in explorer too, but now that's all fixed, thanks!

But, one problem left. 3 tags doesn't work as it should (according to explorer). These tags are 'rating' 'albumartist' and 'year'. For example, if a file with already declared Albumartist, Year, and Rating (those stars in explorer) is dragged into foobar, TagBox then shows these fields as empty. Any way to get around this?

EDIT: Omg, I found out that Albumartist tag is 'band', and Year is 'date' . But this rating (those stars in explorer: http://spunit.tk/x/weird.jpg (http://spunit.tk/x/weird.jpg) ) I still can't seem to edit. Maybe it's a tag name other than 'rating'?

This tag - a custom ID3 frame called POPM with varying interpreations - is not supported by foobar. This post (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=82983) is about foobar2000 and POPM support.

Oh, so it doesn't support it, too bad. Well I think I'll go with the 'rating' tag then.

I also noticed that the keyboard combination Ctrl+Down which should (according to the documentation (http://arash.dejkam.com/software/tagbox/)) apply changes and move to the next track actually opens context menu (the same way as simply pressing Down does).

Sorry I had to mention this in the documentation:
In the configuration page you can choose whether Down key opens the drop-down menu and Page Down key moves the selection down or vice versa.

I don't understand what's this vertical spacing condensation? If you made this only for yourself than OK, but I think you should provide at least a tick box option and follow font and vertical spacing as globally set for lists, so that user won't notice inconsistency in layout, or put it politely - be more user-friendly

Also, can't all dialog group repeatings in configuration window be replaced with some combo box?

Noticed other issues, like user can't put it on the left edge of screen/layout, as drop-down menu will clip, but I think that not considering seamless integration with other player elements is more important to note

Thank you

Suggestion for you - integrate one of the online services that id a track by its content (like Shizamm) but it can work just by clicking a button in your interface which then sends a sample (sample should start from tracks current position if the active track is being tagged) to the service for IDing.

If you need to name of the service let me know.

Just discovered this very nice plug in.  Makes fixing and adding tags super easy, now that I can do it directly from the front of the player via UI Element.

One little feature suggestion.  How about enabling multi-line fields (such as the Comment field and Lyrics).  Being able to see more then one line of text would make it much easier to edit these type of fields.

Thanks and keep up the good work.

I started to use foobar intensively and found your tagging plugin pretty useful, so great work!
Can I ask for a (supposely) easy feature like "clear underscores" under the capitalize autotrack etc menu?
Or even better I suggest for a replace char / string feature somewhere in the plugin.

Anyway great work again. Thank you for your hard work and regards, ExtremeMultiman

Regarding recent crash reports, so far I have not been able to reproduce the crash on my own machine and the crash report data is not enough for debugging, so if you experience a crash which involves TagBox, reporting exactly what you did that caused the crash here would be a lot of help.

Thank you so much for this awesome plugin! It's extremely useful

A couple of things, though:

* I'm using fb2k under WINE in Linux (which I know probably voids my warranty  ), but my dropdowns often look like this (here it's an auto-complete dropdown after me writing 'E'):

Haha. If there's any manual work-around for the likes of me, it'd be great to know

* When selecting files with multi-line field values (such as lyrics), the UI becomes very unresponsive (long lags when clicking files in playlists). Not sure why? Try copy/pasting a regular text file into a tag for an album's tracks and try it yourself.

Thanks a lot!

Daniel

EDIT: Just thought I'd add this one, as the other one is hardly a real problem, just a bit "off":

howdy, I've got a feature request, but I am not sure if it's utopic.

I like to have a behaviour, which preselect at example genre tags for an artist in the database.

Let's say I've got the files by ARTISTX tagged with Genre PUNK, when I add a new ALBUM of ARTISTX and can't remember the genre I used before, then the autocomplete pops up with the Genre I previously used for ARTISTX on top and the others (from Database) are listed below.
Is it possible?

Post by: JoeSyr on 2011-05-08 19:57:27
Hi, just found this plugin, love what it does. I'd like to suggest two changes to the auto capitalization algorithm, though:

-Ignore the A->a rule when the string is "*.A*". For example, it currently performs changes such as "M.I.A."->"M.I.a.", "D.A.N.C.E." ->"D.a.N.C.E.", etc. I can't find any examples in my library where the following period isn't part of the string, but my intuition is that ".A" will still be more robust than ".A." without affecting other patterns.

-Treat colons as the start of a new string, for considering what to do with articles and prepositions. For example keep/change to, "Symphony 3: The Story" over "Symphony 3: the Story".

I'm not sure if the second one is supported or refuted by normative English capitalization rules, but I know that it looks strange in my library to see "a" and "the" lowercase following colons. I personally parse colons in song titles as denoting something like "Song Title Prefix: Main Song Title", or "Song Title Part 1: Song Title Part 2", if that makes sense.

Other than that, the feature was really great to stumble across. Foobar's default tag editor's ability to auto-capitalize everything is better than nothing, but still usually leaves a lot of manual editing work.

Also, not sure if this would be easy to implement based on how the plugin currently seems to work, but one of the reasons I use foobar's tag editor is to clear out custom tags written by other software, just in the spirit of cleaning up my files. If there was an option to display all unspecified tags when they are present, then tagbox would be a fuller replacement for the default tag editor interface.

Edit: Another auto-capitalization issue, this seems to be a bug following a pattern I can't figure out, though. A few of my tracks are getting the change "*'s*"->"*'S*" applied, but it's only a handful. The full titles are:
Dream Catcher’S Mitt
Less Yes’S, More No’S
Pompous Posies! Your Party’S No Fun
*Happiness ('S Unit of Measurement)

*This one might be responding to the leading parenthesis. It's certainly an atypical format but perhaps it could use an exception? Not sure if there would be valid cases for "*('s*" out there.

Emilie Sagée’S Secret
A Quick One, While She’S Away
The Ghost of EPPEEPEE’S Ghost

I'm not sure if it's worth noting that this is isolated to two artists in my library, but there are tracks on the same albums that do not experience this effect. These are all mp3's, using id3v2.3 for tags, which is also standard for all my unaffected songs.
Title: TagBox Tag Editing Plugin
Post by: Arash on 2011-05-09 10:57:52
...think that would be possible? ;-D

Actually I was going to add a feature to allow inserting of current date and time in a tag, but what you're suggesting is even better (it can always open to current date and time). On to-do list.

I'd like to suggest two changes to the auto capitalization algorithm...

I will improve TagBox's dealing with abbreviations and the thing you suggest about colons is valid too that should be corrected. The problem with the ’S is because those are not normal apostrophes if you look closely they have a little forward inclination, use normal apostrophe (') and you'll be OK.

+1 for multiline ability for comments and lyrics tags. 

I also think it would be really valuable to show the actual ID3 frame associated with the tag field for Mp3 files. I can't think of any other tag editor that easily displays this information, and showing it will avoid the need for hex editors to see frame assignments.

thanks again for a useful component.

hi there, nice plugin, thank you very much.
i'm looking for a DUI alternative to foo_uie_tagger_mod or in other words, a panel (for each single tag) with checkboxes.

i have one tab for each tag.
now i have to open the drop down list, before the vaules appearing and i can click them.

would it be possible to show the values direct, without the dropdown list?
i know this would look chaotic with a list of tags, but with just one tag it would make sense.

or any other ideas how i can have a checkbox panel in DUI?

The component repeatedly crashed my foobar today. It happened on adding an SACD ISO (Bocelli - Sentimento) - only opening it was to enough to crash the program most of the time. Other times, it happened when I tried to select a range of tracks, and then clicked again. This is the first ISO among more than 200 where this happened. I have removed foo_tagbox for the moment and foobar is back to stable.

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 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?

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.

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!

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.

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?

Just added this to my foobar setup last night.  Great little plugin.  However, there are a couple little things I wanted to mention that I think might make it better:

1) Would it be possible to make it more keyboard friendly? I like that you can use the up/down arrow keys and pg up/pg down but as far as I can tell, there's no way to close the standalone tagbox window with the keyboard.  With the standard foobar properties window, I can just hit enter (or tab over to "OK" and then hit enter).
2) I also seem to be experiencing that bug that minimizes foobar after closing the tagbox standalone window (but only after saving changes to the tags).  Is there any way to fix this? It's not bad if I'm just making small changes, but it could get pretty irritating when I'm doing larger editing jobs.

For 2) I found the "workaround" to deselect files before closing down. Still cumbersome, not as nerve-wrecking as the minimize problem, at least for me. It should definitely be fixed, otherwise a nice component.

I really like this component, but got more problems:

- TagBox does not work correctly when opened via Right-Click outside the Playlist context, e.g. the Media Library Search window (selects random files instead of the selected files, seriously scary if someone wasn't paying attention and modified the tags for the wrong files!)

Please fix or source so someone else can?

Hello,

I have foobar configured with "Automatically synchronize file tags with statistics". For tagging and set rating I use primarly TagBox.
When I set rating in the TagBox on playing a file, any time later after synchronize the statistics with the file tags, the rating in the file is set to the value in the playback statistic.
I have read in this topic and find out, this is a bug and it should be solved in a next version?
My questions are, is this really a bug and exist a solution for this?

Thanks for information and current status for set rating (from playback statistic) in tagbox

Not sure this component is being updated anymore. At any rate, I added it to one of my tabs, but unfortunately there are no vertical scrollbars, making it useless for my current layout. You need a certain amount of vertical space to even see the 'Apply Changes' button. Not sure if this is a bug or what?

Too bad because it would be handy and I like it otherwise.

Hi. I found a bug. For example we have tag "power" and tag "action" for field "comment" made by Tagger Mod. In the Tagger Mod panel this tags is separately checked. But, when i manually correct "comment" field (print one letter and delete it is enough), than a new line with tag "power; action" is added in the Tagger Mod panel and the boxes with tags "power" and "action" is checking off.
Also, when i manually add a new tag in the field (for example i add tag "extreme" to the tags "power; action" through the symbol ";" - "power; action; extreme") than a new line with tag "power; action; extreme" is added in the Tagger Mod panel and the boxes with old tags also cleared. Through what symbol can i add a new tag to exlude this problem (clearing old tags).

No, you didn't.

when i manually correct "comment" field (print one letter and delete it is enough), than a new line with tag "power; action" is added in the Tagger Mod panel and the boxes with tags "power" and "action" is checking off.
As long as you don't define the comment field as a multivalue field for the properties dialog (Preferences -> Advanced -> Display -> Properties -> Multivalue fields) and you change the value through the properties dialog as described, this is the expected behavior.

Through what symbol can i add a new tag to exlude this problem (clearing old tags).
See above. Besides this you can also add multiple values separated by semicolons through the Tagger panel directly by typing them in into the "-- add values --" box.

+1 for this please. Half the labels outside the scrolling field list are obscured, and you can only see the left two thirds of each entry in the scrolling list, the most annoying consequence is you cannot remove fields as the X button is on the right. My workaround has been to edit the existing fields, to put the fields I want at the top, then to hide the rest in my foobar2000 layout. Was hoping to manually edit the settings, but I couldn't find where the component's settings are stored (registry, foobar2000/configuration, etc).

A really really handy extension though, thanks.

This component works fine with Columns UI. The only difference AFAIK is that it cannot be added to your layout as a CUI panel (opens in its own window) but it can be embedded as a DUI element.

Another tag editing component is Tagger Panel (http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_uie_tagger_mod) (although it looks and functions differently than TagBox). It can be embedded in a CUI panel but not embedded in the DUI (opens in its own window).

I noticed this too (if it is what I think it is). Like this:

I have 2 songs with different Artist tags. I mark them, and in TagBox it shows "multiple values" under Artist. Then I hit that arrow symbol next to the Artist text, and lets say that I've put "artist text" there in the list, so I click on that one. Then it should appear in the textbox, but it doesn't. The textbox remains empty, but even with it empty, the Apply Changes button becomes enabled. If I then click on that one, the Artist tags becomes like this: "Dead Can Dance; artist text" and "Elend; artist text". And not like "artist text" and "artist text" like it should be.

Hope this gets fixed, it's a bit annoying.

I cannot speak as to text not displaying in the dropdown since I've never encountered that behavior. Perhaps if you posted a screenshot it would better demonstrate what you're seeing.

If I then click on that one, the Artist tags becomes like this: "Dead Can Dance; artist text" and "Elend; artist text". And not like "artist text" and "artist text" like it should be.

This is likely just the "Behavior" for that tag in TagBox. It's currently set to "Append" new values. You'll want to change the behavior to "Replace."

The settings are found at Preferences > Tools > Tagging > TagBox and are set on a per tag basis.

Hope this gets fixed, it's a bit annoying.

Is there a way to remove the default genres from the auto-fill, and add one's own genres instead?

Quite silly that these useless genres are hard-coded in the (binary format) foo_tagbox.dll.cfg... is there any way to edit that file, besides raw hex editing?

EDIT: Hex-editing that file doesn't give the desired results - I still don't see my genres after restarting FB2K.

So you think storing configuration values in an appropriate file is silly? Strange.

It appears also strange to me instead to read the documentation (http://arash.dejkam.com/software/tagbox/) to search in a binary file to get the answer for your question.

It works fine with 1.3.8 for me.

If you're opening TagBox via View in the main menu or if it's embedded in your Default UI configuration, you'll need to select a file or files in the playlist and then add/modify tags for the "Apply Changes" button to become enabled. If you're opening TagBox via the context menu, you'll need to add/modify tags for the "Apply Changes" button to become enabled.

But no matter what I try in the TagBox configuration, it just shows as blank.

Is there a way to filter the autocomplete dropdown list
in order to get only the values from the same field and
not from all the fields, when choosing "Values currently in database?

So when if I'm adding a "genre" I get a list of only the genre values
present in the db and nothing else.

when editing tags in TagBox component or in properties dialog, the keyboard shortcuts are ignored. But since version 1.5 beta, editing in TagBox component is interrupted by keyboard shortcuts, whereas properties dialog isn't affected.

For example, a probleme. Mp3 files with ID3v2.3 tags. If i want to enter multiple publisher tag, TagBox writes in TXXX custom tags, instead of standard WOAS. The plugin seems to be of limited use, you have to be careful with it.
Title: Re: TagBox Tag Editing Plugin
Post by: incifinci on 2020-06-04 23:32:07
And similar story with TLAN, TPUB (yes, i wrote it badly before, WOAS is the source webpage url.) And restores WOAS, if i modify any other tag. And uses fake ("/") delimiter instead of real multiple fields, for example at artist. And so on...

Practically unusable. (For ID3v2.3 -- but excellent for Vorbis tags, for FLAC.)
Too bad -- it would be very necessary.

Yes, unfortunately. That is, why i wonder, if anybody has any help left. My other comments are for information only -- i think, they are useful.

I am not a developer, but as i know, sometimes there are people, who take over stopped development. In my opinion, this is a very useful plugin. It is much easier and faster to use, than Foobar's built-in Properties window. Although, of course, Foobar has no such flaws. Now i use TagBox regularly, and if i tagged mp3 files, sometimes i repair them later in Mp3tag (with filter + saved action).

Alexander Ostuni,
It would. I think that's the main reason I use TagBox. It's an easy way to click on individual files and view/edit the tag data, rather than have to open and close the properties window.

What'd be really nice is a UI element that displays tag data like a playlist, with columns for Artists, Title etc, except unlike Playlist columns the tag information displayed can be edited. Something along the lines of Mp3Tag, I guess.

Wouldn't it be even better if the current properties window worked that way? Instead of a column of tag fields displaying <multiple items> I'd prefer multiple columns displaying the file name then Title, then Artist etc. In this particular fantasy you could highlight multiple items in a column, and right click to open a dialogue box that'd let you add/change the data in each selected field simultaneously, or something like that.

The 'Immediately Apply' option doesn't seem to be working anymore. I have that selected in the Element Configuration, but TagBox still requires me to press enter after inputting ID3 information or pressing the 'Apply Changes' button. I want it just take the new information and save it.
