This would work for all bitmap players, but is much more involved than the above. It should be a completely new file-listing mode. I have another suggestion that isn't really anything like this, but could also be called "BrowseByAlphabet". It would require more work, and I'm not really capable of doing this work, but I thought I'd put my thoughts here. The idea is to have the regular filebrowser, but only show files starting with a certain letter - this letter can then be chosen from a column next to the filebrowser. Like so:
+---+---------------+ | A | Catch.mp3 | | B | Cell.mp3 | | C | Change.mp3 | | D |>Challenge.mp3 | | E | Close.mp3 | | F | Cold.mp3 | | G | | +---+---------------+This is the browser set on C. If the user then presses left, the marker is set on C, and he can move up/down to get other songs shown. This would probably be particularly useful for the DB browser, where you're bound to have very long lists of songs/artists/albums. Pressing left while in the letter-column would take you one folder up. -- JonasHaeggqvist
