I'm unable to view the screenshot image because I'm unable to accept the advertising cookies that the imgur website wants to set in my browser. Please upload this image to the forum as a file attachment and delete the link from your post. Many thanks.

As you are always getting search results from the root folder, this means that your control point is always specifying the root container as the base container for the search. This has been discussed earlier in this thread (see posts 14, 15 and 16).

Would a UI be needed? Doesn't Bubble already know the necessary information, kept in the browse history?

Yes it has the necessary info. Will look into it, although no promise. I was just elaborating on more advanced search requests, which apparently is off-topic.

Not off-topic. The OP was originally asking about the possibility of boolean searches, the thread drifted into searches in general and the "from here" idea came from that.

Thanks Simon

From what I understand then, Minimserver allows searching from any container but my particular control point (HiFi Cast) ignores this and will always search from the root?

Thanks for this. It looks correct according to the current sorting rules, assuming that "The" is an ignored prefix for albums.

songs from Beatles Triple Trackers
song from CD11...
song from Classic Cuts...
song from Complete Elvis...
song from Definitive...
...etc.

Thanks Simon, you're quite right...I'd forgotten about 'The' being ignored. Brain freeze Big Grin

Hi,

The next version of the Hi-Fi Cast app will allow you to search from any container. There will be a new Search item in the context (3-dot) menu for all containers. The search in the toolbar will continue to search the entire library.

Cheers,
Brett

In the next MinimServer update, the sort order for this list will change to the sort order for the "n items" list (track name first, then artist name, then date). The user can customize this sort order by setting the items.sortTags option in the tagOptions property.

This change is now available in MinimServer update 125.
