MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Better Sorting options for the Left Main Panel
« on: February 21, 2023, 07:50:39 AM »
'left main panel' only describes the location of that panel, not what it is set to display.
So it would be good if you gave some more info on that.
I'd like to be able to see Album Artists or Albums, etc. but them be able to sort them using other tags including Custom and Virtual Tags. For the time being it only allows for sorting by Count or Name which is a way too limited option, quite disappointing in fact.
As an example, I have a Custom Tag, "Album Composer", being a classical music aficionado. I'd love being able to use this "Album Composer" Custom Tag and then having those Album Composers sorted by another Custom Tag called "Album Composer Sort". Album Composer could be say, "Ludwig van Beethoven" and its sort value would then be "Beethoven, Ludwig van".

for v3.6 i am planning to make fields in the album and tracks view and the artwork view editable templates like with the track information panel fields

This will be an interesting development and I think it would help me move at least some of my VTs over.
Thanks, as always, for being awesome, @Steven!
Thanks for supporting this idea!

MusicBee Wishlist / Better Sorting options for the Left Main Panel

The left main panel allows shorting only by Count, Name and Year.
This is quite a limited option. It would be very helpful  if it allowed shorting by other tags including Custom and Virtual Tags.

The reason I wish to use Custom Tags is that I wish to be able to use tags that are not standard, i.e. tags I've made up as Album Composer/Album Composer Sort.

I'd like to thank everybody for their responses.

Thanks for your response! Yes, I already have enabled this option. The thing is that it only works for Artists, Composers and Albums. I'd like to do custom sorting based on a Custom tag. Thanks once more.

Well I don't really understand what you mean, but it's a panel that lists Albums, Artists, Composers etc, based on the particular tag selected. Say that Album Artists are selected, then a vertical list of Album Artists shows up. Then, when an Album Artist is selected, his/her albums appear on the Main Panel. When an Album is selected a view of the tracks appears.

Hi hiccup. Well I'm talking about the Left Main Panel, i.e. the list panel sitting on the right hand side of the Left Sidebar (and on the left hand side of the Main Panel).

vincent kars, thanks for your response.

Unfortunately, the left main panel, i.e. the left list panel, doesn't allow for this type of sorting/grouping. It only allows sorting by tags (standard tags, custom or virtual tags) and by count or name. I don't know the reason for this restriction but that's how it is.

Thanks once more.

hiccup, thanks  a lot for your input! Sorting works fine but there's a problem:

It shows the first n characters defined by (<Sort Artist>,n) immediately followed by <Artist> characters.

E.g. for the artist "Tori Amos" it shows "Amos, ToTori Amos" when (<Sort Artist>,8) is defined. The value of "contrast" doesn't seem to affect the number of characters shown. I even tried {contrast: 0} but it insists on showing the first n characters of (<Sort Artist>,n).

Thanks very much for your response! I'm looking for a straight forward way to sort lists by custom tags. Say that I'd like to sort "Artist" tag by the "SortArtist" tag or "AlbumArtist" by "SortAlbumArtist", but doing so in lists of Artists or Album Artists or whatever, by the use of Custom Tags. For example I employ two Custom Tags, "AlbumComposer" and "AlbumComposerSort". I'd like to view a list of Album Composers ordered by the "AlbumComposerSort" tag.

Thank once again for your response.

Questions / Sorting using Virtual Tags
« on: September 01, 2022, 07:27:19 AM »
I'm new to Virtual Tags. I'd like to create a rather simple Virtual Tag that shows a tag sorted by another, e.g. showing a list of artists, i.e. "Artist" tag, sorted by the "SortArtist" tag.

Any help would be appreciated!
