|Summary||0005133: Improved context help for Search bar|
|Description||The tooltip currently shows 'Search'. This doesn't explain that boolean 'OR' can be used (see bug 0005104). The tooltip should be changed to:|
Search. To find Library files that include either of two search terms, add an uppercase OR between the terms.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Fixed in build||1211|
I believe this tooltip refers to what happens if you press the button. If so then it perhaps should say "Go to Search", "Go to detailed search" or similar.
But it might be a good idea to add an extra tooltip to the search input box which describes how OR works, and also perhaps how <space> works (= AND).
(Btw, why doesn't uppercased AND work as <space>)
Also, in the "detail search" OR only works in the "Any text field"-box but there is no info about it (no tooltips in "detail search" at all).
We probably can't explain all useful features for search bar (like negations, range searches for numeric fields, etc.) only in tooltip. So, probably show find a way how to easily send user to help file in case it's needed. 'Help' could possibly be a new item in the drop-down list?
Although 'AND' isn't really needed, we could add it just for consistency.
Assigning to Rusty for a review.
OK, how about the following:
1) The tooltip should appear when hovering over the search bar (leave the button tooltip as is)
2) The tooltip should be:
A : finds tracks with A* or á*
+A : finds tracks with A* only
"A" : finds tracks with A only
A B : finds tracks with A AND B
A OR B : finds tracks with either A or B
A -B : find tracks with A and NOT B
artist:A : finds tracks with Artist = A
year:X..Y : finds tracks in range X to Y
rating: X.. : finds tracks with X stars or more
3) Pressing F1 when focus is on the search bar should bring the user to the Search help page.

Minor problem, but it makes it look kind of strange--the first line of the context help is missing:
