View user's profile Send private message it's all correct but don't work correctly sad

the only thing I can think of is that I used the same prefs.xml I had for the old version, is ok or I must create a new one with the 3.6.0 version?

View user's profile Send private message Send e-mail It should be work with an old pref.xml even if there are some modifications.
But try with a new pref.xml (delete it or rename it with an other name).
I try to reproduce your problem but I never success.
It works very well for me.
Sorry sad

View user's profile Send private message Send e-mail Ok, I see the problem.
It is because you group by Media Label so the list is sorted by the group name.

You have to :
- Do right click on list and set group by <none> (to remove groups).
- Go in preferences and check "Movie column" in MovieList Menu (to show movie number header and clic on it to sort by this numbers) .
- Always in preferences, select Media Label in Title Formatting Menu (to display Media Label instead of Movie Title)

Easier way without renumer:
- Do right click on list and set group by <none> (to remove groups).
- Display as grid and click on header "year" to sort by year ! (You can stretch the list to have a better view)
- You can organise columns by dragging header columns on left and resise them like you want.

View user's profile Send private message Send e-mail Actually, I don't see any bug and it is the same behavior than 3.5.1 version for the sort of groups (by name or by number of movies in groups if you choose this option in preferences).
I really don't understand your problem and I am sorry.
What you have to understand is that "renumber" tool just change the number of movies.
So, if you don't sort movies my number then it is normal that nothing change on the list order.

View user's profile Send private message in the visualization that I have with the old version I don't see the number and the function "Advanced sort options" - "Years" work perfectly.
With the same setting in your mod version NOT, so for me is a bug but don't worry, I retourn to use the old version.
Thank's for your patience grin kind

View user's profile Send private message Hi Soulsnake!

I really like the new 3.7 version, congrats on solving an old problem!
Wonderful! grin kind grin kind grin kind

A friend of mine is importing data from Extreme Movie Manager to AMC, but the current number of fields isn't enough for him.

It would be nice if we could discuss this and maybe add more fields to the structure, since you most likely have more knowledge of Delphi7 than I do.
I've already made a version 4.0, but it's probably not perfect.

This is my version 4.0 :

Could you help me with this?

Thanks,

View user's profile Send private message Send e-mail I am happy that you like this new version! grin

I know the number of fields is not enough for all.
However, my first priority is to keep full compatibility with official version (3.5.1).
Later, in a new major version (4.X), I will add a fields manager where you will can:
- add or delete custom fields
- choose name and type of a custom field
- choose position of fields with multi tabs features
- show or hide a field
- etc...
But this new features requiere many modifications on the base program... wink

View user's profile Send private message Visit poster's website (I'll write in English so more people can follow the discussion)

I'll test it first, but I may use that version as official version grin
What was missing as translation strings except in the Statistics window?

One of the only feature that I was planning to add in short term (since a few years grin) is a real compatibility with Vista/7's AUC, by putting all data files in user profile folder instead of program's folder.
You haven't changed anything about that yet I suppose?

Did you use other new 3rd-party components? (one thing I was trying to avoid, as it is annoying to install a lot of these in Delphi)

We could release it "as it is" as version 4, no need to add big features, due to the long life of 3.x versions.
One thing I was planned do starting with version 4 is to have a version numbering like what I use in Ant Renamer:
a.bc.d instead of a.b.c.d
So there would be versions 4.00 to 4.99: each version with new features increments that number, it avoids the problem to decide which number has to be incremented grin (then e.g. 4.00.1 if a release fixes only bugs)

I say "we" could release since I think that I could use your version as an official one (with you as co-author of course), as long was it follows the few things I was planning like the version number, and that translations and help files are maintained...
About that, I guess you only update the French translation file?
What about the help file?
And the toolbar images?

About adding new fields, I think that it would be better to decide a new file format rather than modify the current one, as it is not really well conceived for handling big files. One of the thing which could be done is to read pictures when needed rather than loading/writing the whole catalog each time. It makes saving a little more complicated, of course.
Using only the XML format would allow to add fields and still keep the files readable by old versions, but it does not allow to easily store pictures in it. As there are many tools which can handle/import AMC files we have to be careful on what we do there.

Actually, I use AMCU as portable version so I didn't change anything about data files directory.
But if we change this, I thing we have to put an option to choose portable version or not grin.

Did you use other new 3rd-party components? (one thing I was trying to avoid, as it is annoying to install a lot of these in Delphi)

I only use 2 new components (very easy to install):
- HTML Viewer Components 9.45 : http://pbear.com/htmlviewers.html
- rkSmartView v1.0 modified for Ant Movie Catalog Unofficial 3.7.0 : included in source package.
(official version of rkSmartView can be found on http://rmklever.com)

I have thought the same thing grin. No problem.

Of course, no problem !

Yes, French and English translation !

Quote:
What about the help file?

I have to update it...

Quote:
And the toolbar images?

In fact, I don't know where you found images, so I add 2 open source images (Random, HTML Viewer) but we can change them.

Quote:

For the moment, I don't known.
We have to choose between compatibility and big change...
But in any case, I prefer XML because it is standard and readable by human grin.

PS: I update install and zip package because I have forgotten some English translation in "English.lng" file. It's fixed now wink.

View user's profile Send private message Visit poster's website For the icons I think links are in the help file.
I'll check that later and either send you the links or the icons collection.
There are several "themes", I do not know if it is useful to maintain all of them though.

Do not worry about portable version, for me it is very important that a program can work without install and directly on a USB key, so it will always be possible to run in different modes wink
At work I already properly migrated the software that we sell to make them compatible with UAC, I'll do it the same way for AMC/Ant Renamer...

I probably already made a few minor changes compared to the version which is available from my site, so I'll try to send you the info on what has to be changed to include these (I guess it is easier to consider that for the moment it is your version the "main" one, and I'll just submit you the changes I made + what to update for UAC compatibility).
