    It is nice if we can sort (order by ) the result return by the smart playlist.

    eg.
    year = 2006 AND path = “sundayschool” AND order fname

    I hardcoded the “order by fname” on the db-sql.c; however, it is better to have smart-parser.c to generate it based on the query.

    KK :unsure:

    Yup. It’s on my wishlist too. I was going to make it something like:


    option limit 50
    option sort fname
    option direction ascending
    year=2006 and path="sundayschool"

    Or something.

    Please allow multiple sort directives.

    Getting playlist sorted album by album needs something like:

    "order by songs.artist,songs.album,songs.disc,songs.track"

    which I actually hardcoded into my version of db-sql.c smart
    playlist handling. Does its work nicely especially if the
    compilation concatenating is enabled.

    The Code box in my message above appears empty in my Firefox even
    though the preview showed it nicely. Anyways, it should be:

    “order by songs.artist,songs.album,songs.disc,songs.track”

    Yeah, there will be multiple fields. Has to. I can’t really think of a playlist that would be sorted in less than three fields anyway. And sometimes in different directions.
