@nynaevelan - Yes, I though to capitalize a word "played" in headings, but was not sure what other would think about it. Speaking about cosmetic changes, I am also thinking to apply central alignment of the main title which is currently left aligned - what you think about it? Also, maybe it would be better to write Top 10 Played Artists (or Album, Genres and so on) than Top 10 Artists Played?

ZvezdanD wrote:@Mizery_Made - Yes, I though to add Conductor field to the Totals section, but you don't believe, I didn't because I wanted an odd number of rows, so that the last row in section have Silver background color Could you tell me which one more field to add to this section beside of the Conductors, so that we have odd number of rows? Maybe Album Artists? Speaking about cosmetic changes again, it reminds me to ask, what would you think if I add a support for skinning colors and headers, similar to my scripts MN and RFR? Currently, its bright colors are not very well with some dark skin.

Maybe I could add configuration for this as well, but such configuration dialog could be too crowded. I think it should be enough if I put check boxes or similar to turn on/off only sections, but not for every item in the section. Anyway, I will add those fields to the Average section in the next release.

I am thinking to put the # column first (1, 2, 3 and so on), then Artists (Albums,..) and only after that the Tracks column. What do you think about that?
I will add the Option Sheet for existing sections and maybe for individual items in the Total and Average sections, but I am not sure if I will add more sections using current state. I think that I have one more flexible and better idea about script configurability. I need to think more about it, but if it could be implemented, it would resolve many wishes. Just to give you a hint - it would be dependent on Magic Nodes and its Statistic qualifier. With that solution users could add anything they want using MN masks, without a need to change this script.

ZvezdanD wrote:Maybe you don't understand. I am not saying that this script would not work without MN. It will work as it is now and more. You don't need to worry, I already said that I will add the Option Sheet, but I want it to be used only for existing sections. I don't think it is best solution to add more and more sections to this report and, in same way, more and more controls to the Option Sheet, using existing approach.
Currently we have suggestions for some new fields (Original Artist, Conductor...), but what if some user wants another data to be displayed? Maybe s/he don't want to know about total number of tracks, file size or length, but wish to see average bitrates or oldest playdates or total playcounts per each artist/album/... Could you imagine how complex would be this script if I need to cover all such situations? Not only for me as scripter, but also for users. Such Option Sheet would be nothing less complicated than existing MN dialog box.
