CoClass SDBSongData, Interface ISDBSongData

Property Get/Let Author As String


Property description

There is a redundant property, ISDBSongData::MusicComposer, in Media Monkey 2.5. Based on limited testing it appears that this property (Author) is the property to use. The ISDBSongData::UpdateDB and ISDBSongData::WriteTags methods seem to use the value from Author rather than the value in the ISDBSongData::MusicComposer property. Also, this value can be used to display data already in the database, while ISDBSongData::MusicComposer apparently does not.

The situation under MediaMonkey version 3.x is unknown.
