Possibility to add a "sort alphabet" so your views to quickly jump to a certain letter...

https://github.com/marcelveldt/script.sk...edia-views

Is this different to pressing shift+1st char or shift+first 2 chars when in a view?

Hi Marcel,

Just a quick question, got the latest from GIT and tried plugging this in, it is working but if I select a letter it always jumps to the start of the letter before i.e. select 'E' jumps to 'D'

Any ideas why?

Edit: think it might be connected to having movies beginning 0-9?. If I'm on the first movie in my library, '71, then if I select any letter it does not jump, if I'm on first film with 'A' and select 'F' it jumps but to 'E' so I guess the 0-9 movies are connected? if I'm on 'R' and select 'A' no jump?
I've experienced the same, didn't think about the 0-9 items though...
Hi Marcel,

I didn't expect you to provide it so soon... BIG THANKS!!!

It works great, but I have found a little bug; for instance a song with duration of 3:03 is shown as 3:3 and another one of 3:00 as 3:0

As respects this...

(2016-04-30, 14:01)Mike_Doc Wrote: [ -> ]can you make it a different property Marcel? perhaps SkinHelper.Music.Tracklist.Duration ? You'll know best. I use .Music.Tracklist and would prefer to just have tracklist only like it was.

...I agree with Mike, but like he says you know best...

Thanks again!

Same issue. Sometimes it jump to correct beggining letter, sometimes not.
Hi Marcel,

Another query / issue for you.

Just noticed that Window(Home).Property(SkinHelper.Music.ClearLogo) is not working 100%. For instance Adele is showing the logo for 'Various Artists'. It looks like it is taking the artist from the first album and for Adele I have:

Ministry of Sound: The Chilled House Session
XX Twenty Years, Vol.2 - Ministry of Sound
19

The above is displayed using Window(Home).Property(SkinHelper.Music.TrackList), can this be sorted to give 19 or artist albums first before compilations as well?

Even @ Album level I get 'Various Artists' logo when on album 19?

TIa,

Mike.

Can you test it with the latest Git version ? Should now be fixed, I indeed overlooked the numbers

Good catch, this is now fixed on Git.
Please remember to flush the cache or use the contextmenu to manual lookup

This is now fixed on Git.

Also, I have moved it to a new property:

Window(Home).Property(SkinHelper.Music.TrackListWithDuration)
Thanks Marcel, both look to be working correctly.

One other question on alphabet, can you do anything to cater for other chars?

The first 4 films in my library are:

'71
The 'Burbs
(500) days of summer
*batteries not included

followed by 2 guns.

If I select '#' it places me @ 2 guns so it is ignoring the 1st 4 films as expected due to their naming, also fixed is if I select D, K, S etc. it selects that letter.

Can you maybe add '!' or something and handle films beginning with no alphanumeric chars?

I'm afraid that's not possible. The "smsjump" workaround I used to create the alphabet can only handle keys 2-9

I have some problem with this.

When I press "#" it go to letter "B".

Sometimes when I press "K" it go to "L".

Sometimes I can up et down on letters, sometimes not. Very strange this stuff...
Hi Marcel,

Thanks for considering non-alpha chars in the new scrollbar.

Question about busy spinners, are png files valid in busy_spinners? I use at the moment a .png file with rotate so can I place multiple .pngs to choose from?

Yes, indeed. Take a look at titan for a reference, it has both gif spinners and multiimage png files
