|0004938||MediaMonkey 4||Properties/Auto-Tools||public||2008-11-14 17:50||2009-04-08 02:01|
|Fixed in Version||3.1|
|Summary||0004938: Make separator configurable for multi-attribute properties|
|Description||Users have complained about the fact that the multi-attribute separator ';' isn't configurable. Per discussion, we should modify MM to make it configurable e.g.:|
In Tools > Options > Library > Appearance (underneath 'Show Shortcuts')
[ ] Split multiple attribute fields with: _;_
Presumably, if enabled:
-Track scans that detect a ';' in a multiple attribute field would store multiple attributes.
-Tag updates would trigger the tag to be saved with multiple attributes
-Tracks that have split tags would display with the separator to denote the split
-Tracks that have a separator for multiple attributes but have not yet been tagged with multiple attributes should appear in the 'Unsynchronized Tags' node.

||- Custom Separator is not used in Scripting so SDB.player.CurrentTrack.ArtistName still shows ";" even Separator is changed to "/"|
||This is on purpose this way - so that scripts don't have to worry about changed separator. In case the string should be presented to user, there are two new methods added to SDBTools object that help converting the string values back and forth.|
Split multiple attribute fields with:
--> Split multiple-value fields with:
Add context help:
--> This specifies what character is used to denote multiple values within a single field (e.g. Rock;Folk).
Note: functionality not yet tested.

Options->Library->Appearance:Split Multi-Value Fields With
Needs a checkbox selection. Default should probably be ON to match 3.0 behavior.
chrisjj has made a suggestion in regards to your minor tweak, Rusty. Suggesting it would read better for users if "This specifies what character is used to denote multiple values within a single field (e.g. Rock;Folk)" became "This specifies what character is used to separate multiple values within a single field (e.g. Rock;Folk)"
He might have a point, both read fine by I'm already familiar with what the option does, but "separate" might work better for a newer user who is not.
||Assigning to Rusty to review, but only after 3.1 release due to a string change.|
||Setting to resolved since this has already been fixed. The only remaining item is context help which is being tracked with the todoc_context tag.|
