Mp3tag Version: 2.46a



When filtering for certain words in my music I'd like mp3tag to highlight the word I've searched for in the results.

Some titles are quite long and it would be nice to see where the word is at a glance.

Is there an option for this in mp3tag, if not would you consider implementing it?

Many thanks.

No one thinks this is a good idea?

I am suggesting something along the lines of Windows 7 search highlighting:

Still no response regarding this, was wondering whether it was overlooked...

Please consider this.

Many thanks.

PS: AFAIK, Requests For Enhancement should be posted in http://forums.mp3tag.de/index.php?showforum=7 (at least the forum description says so)

I am not so sure. If you apply a filter then the list should be shortened correspondingly. Any sample would then proove if the filter worked as desired or not.
The windows explorer then keeps the filter result but what about the tags: if you start editing them: should the highlighting disappiear? Only in the file you currently edit or all of them. When should the highlighting reappear? How would you distinguish between highlights and selections?
What should happen to highlights if you select a whole file to apply actions? Should the highlighting be inverted?
In general I do not see a real benefit esp. as only very few titles are really long. (Oh yes: and if you have a real long entry and the highlighted word would not be displayed, should the entry be scrolled to give a wrong impression about the real title or shouldn't it scroll and also give the impression that it does not match the filter)
So, in short: I am fine with the way filters are currently displayed.

Valid questions.
The answers to them define the best way of implementation.
They are not prejudicial for the RFE.

There are tons of applications out there featuring implementations which had to deal with this questions. IMO most of the answers are fairly obvious, others are a matter of personal taste.

My personal answers would be:
QUOTE
(1a) it doesn't really matter. I don't think the user still needs the highlighting once he/she starts editing. Plus it's a lot easier to code. So my answer would be yes. (For argument's sake, if you answer no, then IMO 1b should be "only current file" and 1c should either be "never" or "after editing").
(1b) n/a
(1c) n/a
(2a) different background color.
C'mon, that was obvious. My suggestion: selection = dark blue (as is currently), hightlighting = bright yellow (as is standard in most applications [e.g. Mozilla Firefox], including the screenshot posted above)
(2b) what do you mean?
(3) If you answer 1a with yes, then they should stay. Obvious, too. Otherwise they shouldn't.
(4) "give the impression that it does not match the filter" ??? c'mon, that's obviously a no-go. So the answer is the other option (scrolling). The scrolling can be indicated by "[...]", so that it does not "wrong impression about the real title".


Those questions are hardly show-stoppers.
