Add suffix in tag display

Add suffix in tag display
I was wondering if it should be possible to add a suffix to a tag, without modifying it in the file of course.
For example, I have the Conductor tag that is displayed like
Herbert von Karajan
I would like to display it as
Herbert von Karajan (conductor)

RE: Add suffix in tag display
Where do you want this to display? The UPnP protocol does not allow the server to send a Conductor value to the control point. Are you including the conductor name in a formatted artist string?

Yes, it should be fine to distinguish the conductor from the other artists

RE: Add suffix in tag display
If I may bend this thread a little. I think I know what the o/p wants to achieve.
My own personal wish is that I can insert "Composer: " in front of my composer tags as they scroll on my Linn streamer or show up in my control app.
So I see "Composer: Lennon~McCartney" instead of "Lennon~McCartney" which is of course in the metadata.
I am sure it is easy.
Apologies if this is totally irrelevant.

RE: Add suffix in tag display
Continuing with the original topic of the thread for now and ignoring the interaction with multiTag, you could set tagFormat to something like this:

Artist.displayFormat={$artist^$conductor^, ^ (conductor)^}

You will also need to add Conductor to either indexTags or itemTags.

For Donuk's version, the format string would be:

Artist.displayFormat={$artist^$composer^, Composer: ^}

Again, this doesn't work with multiTag.

RE: Add suffix in tag display
it works, but I must remove the multiTag property.
It is much more important to me multiTag property so I shall live without "(conductor)"
Thank you for the effort

RE: Add suffix in tag display
Do you see these conductors (without the suffix) at present? If so, there might be some other approach that could work. Please post a screen shot showing what you are currently seeing for conductor information.

Thanks Simon
You can find here the screenshot of the track detail in Lumin app
Seiji Ozawa is the Conductor

The artist is identified by the half body icon

I use this content in tagValue
tagValue Artist.merge={AlbumArtist, ARTISTS, Soloists, Conductor, Orchestra}, Decade.default={Date}, Album/Work.default={Album}

As you can see this merge in Artist the content of the described tags.
The intent should be to show the Conductor (as an Artist) with the “(conductor)” suffix (ie in this example “Seiji Ozawa (conductor)”

RE: Add suffix in tag display
Thanks for explaining your use of Artist.merge. Unfortunately it isn't possible to apply tag formatting to the Composer value before it is merged into the list of Artist values.
