Sourceforge is acting up though...)_ I propose that the code of the current two rocks are merged into one, in the following way: The new plugin should be available both through the "View Plugins" menu, and the "Open with" menu. This is not possible right now, but probably shouldn't be too hard. When running the plugin from the pluginlist, show a menu: * Create new search - opens edit mode * Saved searches - shows a list of searches in .rockbox/searches/ where "entering" each would work as if it was run in the filebrowser. When running an .rsp file, show the menu (with the filename at the top, I guess): * Run and play - executes the query, add results to playlist * Run and save playlist - executes the query, asks for a filename and saves the .m3u * Edit - opens editmode When the user has finished editing a search, show the following menu: * Run and play - executes the query, add results to playlist * Run and save playlist - executes the query, asks for a filename and saves the .m3u * Save searchfile - ask for filename (make the default .rockbox/searches/search.rsp), save an .rsp and quit ---++++!! Results The original use scenarios are still available * Creating an .rsp file by going into "View plugins". * Opening an .rsp file and saving a playlist (though with a single extra step). Additionally, the following things become possible: * Creating running and playing a search in one go, without creating any files. * Creating a playlist of a search without having to first save the .rsp. * Editing, then saving a search without having to go into the menu. I really think this would boost useability of the search --- CategoryOldPlugin: Database Searchengine [Player%Y%, Recorder%Y%, Ondio%Y%, H100%Y%, H300%Y%, iPod 4G%Y%, iPod Color%Y%, iPod Nano%Y%, iPod Video%Y%]
