Summary0017646: Field equals X - attribute selection/editing issues
DescriptionWhen the user tries to choose/edit multiple X attributes for 'Field . equals . X', there are several issues:

1) Switching between criteria often results in attributes from a different criteria being deleted. e.g.
1 edit attributes for Genre . equals . genre1; genre2; etc.
2 Switch to Type . equals . music
--> the list of Genres for the first criterion is lost

2) Scrolling and selecting an item in an attribute list will often result in the list jumping to the previously selected item

3) Deleting attributes from a list of attributes is onerous as it requires the user to scroll through the entire attribute list to deselect
- It should be possible to delete items from the text box (as it is when using F2 to edit multi-attributes)
- It might be useful to show selected attributes at the top of the list (this is probably an approach that shouldn't be implemented piecemeal, but rather globally across the product)

The first two items are best viewed in the video below:
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build2324

Tested this for some time in 2322 and can get both 1) and 2) to occur, but I cannot determine repro steps to get them to occur consistently.

Re. issue 1) the steps that seem to be most likely to trigger it are:
1 Click the attributes for criteria 1
2 Select an attribute for criteria 1
3 Click the attributes for criteria 2 (while the list of attributes from step 1 are still showing)
--> All attributes for criteria 2 are deleted
4 Select an attribute for criteria 2
5 Click the attributes for criteria 1 (while the list of attributes from step 4 are still showing)
--> All attributes for criteria 1 are deleted
6 Repeat steps 2-6 until the bug occurs
After a few rounds of this, the bug will usually occur.

Note: when testing this recently, I observed the following error after several rounds of this, but before the bug occurred:
Exception Access violation at address 004BC616 in module 'MediaMonkeyEngine.xe', Write of address 000000000. Would you like to restart MediaMonkey in safe mode?

I've attached the associated debug log (there was no crashlog). Note that although I'm always able to reproduce the bug, I've never seen this exception before.

EDIT: it seems that the exception occurs when I don't set a Limit to the query.

1) I was also able to replicate the crash and I also see the reason for the original issue now, to be fixed...

2) I am able to replicate (finally) by performing incremental search at first and then later check and uncheck an item, upon unchecking the item auto-scrolling to the last item appears (mostly).
To be fixed with cooperation with Michal in order to prevent from introducing a regression to Dropdown component.
