Feature Request: String Aggregate for tags in titles

Hi there,

I had a look for this feature but wasn't able to find it in the Title Formatting docs (https://wiki.hydrogenaud.io/index.php?title=Foobar2000:Title_Formatting_Reference), nor any previous forum posts.

Thinking something along the lines of STRING_AGGR(%genre%, ", ").

For example, if the genre tags for an album are:




It currently displays like this:



And I'd like to be able to display it like this:



----

  • Is this possible in foobar currently?
  • If not, could it be added to feature backlog?

Cheers!

Titleformatting works on a per track basis. The genre of the grouping header is taken from the first file within the group. Your suggested function would then need for the first file within the group to know what values there are in other files. It doesn't work like that, it's not a database in such a way. No, it's not possible and It's also not just a feature to add. It would require foobar2000 to work more like a true(er) database where sql grouping and aggregate queries could be made

Thanks for the quick follow up and explanation! Had realised it wasn't "just" an easy feature to throw in, but dared to hope.

No biggie : ) Cheers!
