alphaGroup query - SoundAdikt - 06-01-2015 19:39

Hello,

Is it possible to use alphaGroup property, or something else, to create a new category in the home container called (say) Artist Index and then under that list groups as (for example):

ABC
DEF
GHI
...
XYZ

Thus selecting ABC would then this a subset of artists starting with A, B or C, etc.

I found this useful under Twonky to get an artist quickly without having contend with the tiny font showing the index for A to Z down the right hand side in the case of SongBook Lite.

Many thanks, SoundAdikt.

The simplest way to do this is to set alphaGroup to either:

Artist

or if you also want to use alphabetical groups for All Artists:

Artist, All Artists

This shows each letter as an individual group. To see the complete list of artists without grouping, select 'Show All' then 'View All'.
