Many thanks dear Zybex,

Thanks Lepa for the initial work done :-)
Much appreciated, getting closer with Zybex help here :-)

Something I've just noticing which was also causing a problem,
When album titles using ":" or "_", the art isn't shown only the jpg number and the height and width requirements.
Since they did show up as normal cover art, only not within the list of alternative albums i couldn't find the clue.
Anyway I noticed it now and find&replace correct it all at once :-)

One thing is off; The count of alternative albums is one too high, actually two.
Showing the exact number of alternative albums in total +1.
This instead of -1 as one is already displayed/selected.
Now it comes back as p.e. 10 albums as alternative, where only 9 albums exists, but since one is already selected it should say 8 alternative numbers.
Guessing the counting code is somewhere doing +1 instead of -1,

Much appreciated for your help and wishing you a great day,

Mans.

There's no math there, it's just counting the different names. It's more likely there are duplicate/similar names in the list that don't have a corresponding image in the folder. This will print the album names together with the poster (if there's a poster):

Code: [Select]
save(listsort(listclean(listclean(listclean(replace(;Load(vAlbumsByArtist[Album Artist (auto)]);, [Album];,,1), 1), 3), 4)), _albums)/
listmix(/#save(replace([_albums], [L1], _), _albums)#/, 0, :;\;//;?;*;>;<;";|)/
<font size="80" color="#9496a3">ifcase(ListCount([_albums]), 6, 2, ListCount([_albums]) other albums by, 1, 1 other album by, 0, No other albums by) [Album Artist (auto)]/
if([_albums], :
replace(listmix(/#[N]: "[L1]"
<img src="C:\JRiver Cover Art\Albums\[Album Artist (auto)] - [L1].jpg" width="45" height="45">#/, 0, [_albums]),;,char(13)),)<//font>

It also replaces all forbidden chars in the Album name with an underscore - the Album poster filename should follow the same convention.

Thanks Zybex,

Very helpfull :-)
The chars are now all cleaned up, thanks.

Only the number of alternative albums is still one to high.
As you mentioned it displays the number of all albums per artist.
But since this code is used to sum all "alternative" albums to this artist, it should mention -1.

And the print command shows them all, eachtime one too much as it includes the already selected one.

Thanks again Zybex, appreciated !

The code already removes the current Album from the list, so it should not count or show it.
I modified the code again to print the album list it's seeing. Please try it and paste a screenshot of the names.

Code: [Select]
save(listsort(listclean(listclean(listclean(replace(;Load(vAlbumsByArtist[Album Artist (auto)]);, [Album];,,1), 1), 3), 4)), _albums)/
listmix(/#save(replace([_albums], [L1], _), _albums)#/, 0, :;\;//;?;*;>;<;";|)/
<font size="80" color="#9496a3">ifcase(ListCount([_albums]), 6, 2, ListCount([_albums]) other albums by, 1, 1 other album by, 0, No other albums by) [Album Artist (auto)]/
if([_albums], :

current album:
"[Album]"
Other albums:
replace(listmix(/#"[L1]"#/, 0, [_albums]),;,char(13)),)

replace(listmix(/#[N]: "[L1]"
<img src="C:\JRiver Cover Art\Albums\[Album Artist (auto)] - [L1].jpg" width="45" height="45">#/, 0, [_albums]),;,char(13)),)<//font>

The problem could be caused by extra spaces in the list items. Here's a version that ignores spaces:

Code: [Select]
save(listsort(listclean(listclean(replace(;listclean(trim(Load(vAlbumsByArtist[Album Artist (auto)])), 1);,;trim([Album]);,;,1), 3), 4)), _albums)/
listmix(/#save(replace([_albums], [L1], _), _albums)#/, 0, :;\;//;?;*;>;<;";|)/
<font size="80" color="#9496a3">ifcase(ListCount([_albums]), 6, 2, ListCount([_albums]) other albums by, 1, 1 other album by, 0, No other albums by) [Album Artist (auto)]/
if([_albums], :
replace(listmix(/#<img src="C:\JRiver Cover Art\Albums\[Album Artist (auto)] - [L1].jpg" width="45" height="45">#/, 0, [_albums]),;,/ / ),)<//font>

Much appreciated Zybex,

Cool, all album art is now into place and displayed as should :-)

The only remaining thing, the title informing about the number of alternative albums is still one to high;
It mentions the exact number of albums per selected artist, without the minus 1 due to one already selected/displayed.
I'll give this one myself a go during the weekend, maybe I'll figure it out this time :-)

Thanks again for the nice help, have a great day,

Mans.

Another thanks for your kind help Zybex and Lepa,

I was also able to correct the albumcount, in order to substract the already shown album :-)
Now the number of 'alternative albums' is displayed correctly,
Was much more simple as I tought initially :-)
Code: [Select]
save(listsort(listclean(listclean(replace(;listclean(trim(Load(vAlbumsByArtist[Album Artist (auto)])), 1);,;trim([Album]);,;,1), 3), 4)), _albums)/
listmix(/#save(replace([_albums], [L1], _), _albums)#/, 0, :;\;//;?;*;>;<;";|)/
<font size="80" color="#9496a3">ifcase(Math(ListCount([_albums])-1), 6, 2, Math(ListCount([_albums])-1) other albums by, 1, 1 other album by, 0, No other albums by) [Album Artist (auto)]/
if([_albums], :
replace(listmix(/#<img src="C:\JRiver Cover Art\Albums\[Album Artist (auto)] - [L1].jpg" width="45" height="45">#/, 0, [_albums]),;,/ / ),)<//font>

Hi Zybex,
One more request :-)

Code: [Select]
if([_albums],
replace(listmix(/#<img src="C:\JRiver Cover Art\Albums\[Album Artist (auto)] - [L1].jpg" width="45" height="45">#/, 0, [_albums]),;,/ / ),)<//font>

With the following code, I'm noticing, when having more as 8 alternative albums, the spacing isn't always well.
Due to max space for 8 covert art's per line, the 9th album then jumps to the next line and causing a not-so-clean alignment vs the previous line.

Could the replace(Listmix) also be limited to pe 8 results per line ?
Should I enter multiple parts of code per line ? 1-8 and 9-17, etc

Thanks again :-)

Try this to break in groups of 8 (up to 80 results supported, just change the '10' in the repeat() function if you need more):

Code: [Select]
if([_albums], :
replace(listmix(/#<img src="C:\JRiver Cover Art\Albums\[Album Artist (auto)] - [L1].jpg" width="45" height="45">if([L2],char(10),/ / )#/, 2, [_albums],repeat(;;;;;;;1,10)),;,),)<//font>

Or, you can just remove the spacing between the images:
Code: [Select]
if([_albums],
replace(listmix(/#<img src="C:\JRiver Cover Art\Albums\[Album Artist (auto)] - [L1].jpg" width="45" height="45">#/, 0, [_albums]),;,),)<//font>

cool :) But really, this should not be needed with this code. I asked you for a screenshot to see why it was not working - likely the other code that populates the vAlbumsByArtist variable is doing something unexpected. Anyway, no need to worry if you got it working.

Perfect, job completed :-)

Attached a screenshot with the printed cover art and the album count above it.
Sorry I've missed the request to post a screenshot.

FYI I've got 3 albums into the Arcade Fire folder, MC has them shown correctly.
Once I select one of them, the number of 2 alternative albums should be mentioned, here's 3 (the total albums).

With the Math adaption the count is corrected.

Thanks again for the kind help !

"ArcadeFireID" - this is the extra item in the list, likely added by the expression you have somewhere else that sets the vAlbumsByArtist variable.

I am trying to recreate this expression to my needs and I have encounted an error on my expression. I can't figure out where is the error.
Code: [Select]
Replace(ListMix(If(IsMissing(C:\Jiver\Artwork\artists\[L1].jpg),,<img src="C:\Jiver\Artwork\artists\[L1].jpg" size="115x115">),1,[amg artist similar],1;2;3;4;5),;,)
Replace(ListClean(ListMix(If(IsMissing(C:\Jiver\Artwork\artists\[L1].jpg),,<font face="courier" size="92">If(Compare(Length([L1],>,23)),Mid([L1],0,20).../ / ,[L1]Repeat(/ ,Math(25-Length([L1]))))<//font>),1,[amg artist similar],1,2,3,4,5),3),;,)
It show my image file but when comes to text it is an syntax error.

You have a misplaced parenthesis in Length(). Fixed here:

Code: [Select]
Replace(ListClean(ListMix(If(IsMissing(C:\Jiver\Artwork\artists\[L1].jpg),,<font face="courier" size="92">If(Compare(Length([L1]),>,23),Mid([L1],0,20).../ / ,[L1]Repeat(/ ,Math(25-Length([L1]))))<//font>),1,[amg artist similar],1;2;3;4;5),3),;,)

If you like you could make it a little more clever by:
1. checking all similar artists at one go
2. shuffling the returned list of available artists (so it is not always the first five if there are more hits)
3. limiting to 5 artists and use that list (v_similar) to render images and names.

Code: [Select]
Save(E:\.MC Images\Music\Artists\Square,v_image path)/

Save(ListLimit(ListShuffle(ListClean(ListMix(If(IsMissing([v_image path]\Clean([L1],3).jpg),,[L1]),,[amg artist similar]),3)),5),v_similar)/

If(IsEmpty([v_similar]),,
    Replace(ListMix(<img src="[v_image path]\Clean([L1],3).jpg" size="115x115">,,[v_similar]),;,)/
    <br>/
    <font face="courier" size="92">Replace(ListMix(If(Compare(Length([L1]),>,23),Mid([L1],0,20).../ / ,[L1]Repeat(/ ,Math(25 - Length([L1])))),,[v_similar]),;,)<//font>

Hey Lepa. That is a one expression or multiple ones? Im trying to figure out the meaning of it. I barely used the save function on my work.

It outputs maximum of five artist images and on second row the artist names like your previous script.
You can loose the save rows and just use the saved text in the script latter. IMO It is just easier to read and construct big things using the variables when you don't have so long rows.

saves my image path to variable v_image_path. "/" in the end means that linefeed is not inserted. yet another thing to make script more readable as code can be done in multiple lines without linefeeds in the rendering
Code: [Select]
Save(E:\.MC Images\Music\Artists\Square, v_image path)/
Every artist from [amg artist similar] which has image in your saved v_image path is parsed to list, that list is shuffled and limited to 5 items and saved to v_similar. So v_similar is now dynamic field containing shuffled and limited list of artists for which you have image in your system
Code: [Select]
Save(ListLimit(ListShuffle(ListClean(ListMix(If(IsMissing([v_image path]\Clean([L1],3).jpg),,[L1]),,[amg artist similar]),3)),5),v_similar)/
Code: [Select]
If(IsEmpty([v_similar]),,    use variable v_similar to print images row
Code: [Select]
    Replace(ListMix(<img src="[v_image path]\Clean([L1],3).jpg" size="115x115">,,[v_similar]),;,)/    linefeed
Code: [Select]
    <br>/    use v_similar to print artist names
Code: [Select]
    <font face="courier" size="92">Replace(ListMix(If(Compare(Length([L1]),>,23),Mid([L1],0,20).../ / ,[L1]Repeat(/ ,Math(25 - Length([L1])))),,[v_similar]),;,)<//font>
)

IMO It is just easier to read and construct big things using the variables when you don't have so long rows.

It's also good for performance, as you only do the v_similar calculation once and then use the result in 2 places. Without the Save you would need to run the same calculation twice, doubling the execution time.

There's no need to initialize v_similar as the value is replaced on the next line.

@Lepa
I have done those steps, but in the end I have this

I made them two fields v_image path, and v_similar. On your v_image path you have a different path so I did change with mine.
Code: [Select]
Save(C:\Jiver\Artwork\Artists\square, v_image path)/Im not sure if the square are from your path or needed to be there. My exact path for image are:
Code: [Select]
C:\Jiver\Artwork\Artists\Artist Name.jpg and then I have the file name.

Square is just my folder for square images. I have also folder for wide images.
e.g. "E:\.MC Images\Music\Artists\Square\ABBA.jpg" & "E:\.MC Images\Music\Artists\Wide\ABBA.jpg"

You don't have to save and use variable [v_image path] if you don't want. Just replace it with your path. I just find it easier to modify path when is saved out of the business logic and the actual script is also more clean and thus easier to maintain.

Just to be clear - you must NOT create fields in MC with these names, they are temporary variables. If you did, you need to delete them.

I just noticed the line numbers in your Zelda screenshot - Zelda is giving you an error because you did not add the Save() lines, you're just testing the 3rd line of code. That won't work without the Save() calls first, you need to paste all the code there (and also in MC when you use the code there)

I manage to do this:

The only issue now, is to adjust the text to be in the same line with image.
The initial expression had to be change to a better suitable font and the size for it.
Code: [Select]
Save(C:\Jiver\Artwork\Artists, v_image path)/
Save(ListLimit(ListShuffle(ListClean(ListMix(If(IsMissing([v_image path]\Clean([L1],3).jpg),,[L1]),,[amg artist similar]),3)),5),v_similar)/
If(IsEmpty([v_similar]),,Replace(ListMix(<img src="[v_image path]\Clean([L1],3).jpg" size="115x115">,,[v_similar]),;,)/

<br>/
<font face="sudo ui medium"size="95">/ Replace(ListMix(If(Compare(Length([L1]),>,22),Mid([L1],0,25).../ / ,[L1]Repeat(/ ,Math(25 - Length([L1])))),,[v_similar]),;,)<//font>
)))))
I will try to play with the length() and maybe to adjust properly.

Nice!  :)

For the spacing, just increase the two "25" numbers to add/remove spaces. You can also adjust the image sizes (115x115)

Just to note that alignments of the views are currently broken in MC32 due to internal hard coded font size changes. Also because of image rendering changes which removes spacing between objects (this is a good thing)

Font is now 20% bigger. It only affects painfully (meaning re-calculating things) if one has relied on that constant when positioning items. Just need to wait till the dust settles and then try to adapt. Time will tell what kind of possibilities changes will enable.

Also you can set scaling 20% smaller and it makes font smaller but of course scaling also affects other elements

53. NEW: Added support for "pt" and "px" size definitions in inline string <font> parameters
I suppose this is the reason why fonts size are changes? No other thing I see in the new build. Jim can this be elaborate a bit to understand the reason you made the changes?

Did you break the "valign" on font properties with version 32? I see this is not working anymore. Checking on the older version has no problem with valign properties in fonts.
Another thing is on some of my tooltips are ok, some are not.


I have checked these two tooltip to see what is the difference and I don't see anything odd about them.

Vertical align itself still works. If you mean that there is no padding then what you see is probably related to this:
"54. Changed: Empty text tokens no longer contribute vertical height when rendering text, resulting in a more consistent vertical spacing."

Change is good for me so now there is no automatic padding between the components (which is very big one if font was very big in earlier row etc) but i can add it myself by using transparent image (1x1-transparent.png) for whatever size

Code: [Select]

@Lepa. I'm trying to understand your last example on your post. I understand you don't have my fields and you have to do variables. But what I don't understand is you have something which I didn't see till now.
Code: [Select]
Save(20, v_LabelMaxLen)/
Save(20, v_ValueMaxLen)/
Save(color="#111111", v_FontColor)/
Save(bgcolor="#CECDEB", v_FontLabelBGColor)/
Save(bgcolor="#FFAED7", v_FontValueBGColor)/
Save(color="#17B4FF", v_FontColumnTitle)
Save(<img src="tooltip:MISC//Separator//1x1-transparent" size="4x4">, v_Padding)/
Those are part of language expression or yours? Or those are saved for later use in the expression? I think some information has to be updated in html properties to match the new changes. I didn't find anywhere to understand what has be changed.

those are just helper variables which are used in the actual expression. This way you don't need find these values in the actual expression and change the values in the multiple places. Just edit variables font color and every font color in the expression gets the same color. Or if you want to change label bg color, just change value for v_FontLabelBGColor and every label bg color will use that color. So not necessary when you are creating expression but I find them helpful when trying things like changing colors and sizes

This now uses same fields than you did have. you need to have image "tooltip:MISC//Separator//1x1-transparent" which sets the padding. Could be that placeholder also respects the size ("4x4") so if image is not found MC still reserves that space
Code: [Select]
Save(20, v_LabelMaxLen)/
Save(20, v_ValueMaxLen)/
Save(color="#111111", v_FontColor)/
Save(bgcolor="#CECDEB", v_FontLabelBGColor)/

On version 31 when using https://wiki.jriver.com/index.php/Expression_Language#HTML_Font_Properties (some features are missing there), one of them is that when using valign"value" it doesn't take in consideration the vertical alignment of the font in version 32.

Below is my expression:
Code: [Select]
If(isempty([number plays]),<font face="ubuntu mono"size="90"valign="bottom">--<//font>,<font face="ubuntu mono"size="90"valign="bottom">PadNumber([number plays],2)<//font>
<font face="ubuntu mono"size="90"valign="bottom">fixcase(FormatDate([Last Played, 0],yyyy-MM-%d hh:mm, %A),1)<//font>
)
Code: [Select]

It isn't supported everywhere for sure. I was thinking in context of tooltip and theaterview screen where it should be available. I have used it in the player top panel and there it seems to be working. not sure about other places in the standard view. at least thumbnail text seems to not supports valign

it is actually supported also with thumbnail text. It just that because there is no empty vertical space anymore with font the middle,top and bottom are almost the same thing. This can be verified by using bigger font and then do valings with smaller size fonts

If there is a fixed-size UI element it gets drawn into, it needs to be passed the full size externally so it actually knows where top and bottom is. If this is not the case, then it'll just make the line the size of the biggest element, and thus alignment makes no difference.
We can potentially look into fixing such cases, if you document where exactly these occur. Although depending on how the UI is made in that part, there is not necessarily a guarantee.

This change has have benefits to me. I can use e.g 1xX pixel image to set the height if I need some spacing but now there isn't forced spacing anymore which suits me

Then why in version 31 is working but not in 32 in standard view?

Code: [Select]
<font face="ubuntu mono"valign="bottom">bottom<//font>/ <font face="ubuntu mono"valign="medium">medium<//font>/ <font face="ubuntu mono"valign="top">top<//font>
