Filter to see only certain items.

I find myself being fairly anal about my collection. I often have to go movie by movie to ensure there aren't any without ratings. Or checking to ensure the only have one genre. It would be very handy to be able to search or filter on any bit of data that is present. It would help to quickly narrow down problem items. Also, be handy to show only items missing ID as those are normally the ones I need to update. Thanks for the great app.

    I agree, it would be very nice to extend the fields you can filter to all possible fields. But it would be nice if cannot only filter for a field having a value or not but also some semantic related filter options. For example "rating>=5". In particular i would love to see the audio track languages in the filter options.

    I'm not sure of the terms. My language is pt-BR.
    I can not use the terms in English. If anyone can check and report would be good.
    You can not search for Actor Name.
    But you can search several other items.

    That is a nice overview, where did you get that? Did I overlook some documentation or did you write that on your own?

    Beside that I just found Kodi to be able to do some more filtering and/or sorting on your collection as well. Just List your Movie Collection and on the left there are some view options you can slide in and sort by rating for example. That kind of makes the feature request obsolete for me, although it would be nice if MediaElch itself could search for actors and rating ranges too.

    Hi vitalis

    I wrote. I did not find information anywhere.
    I'm helping in translation interface to pt-BR.
    I ended up having access to the file generated by Transifex translator.
    And reading the file I found the "FilterWidget" (Line 1297 to 2040), dedicated to research resources.
    So I discovered the search terms in pt-BR. Some I redid translation.
    The terms in English I can not test my interface.
    So if you can test in its interface, and post here what works, it would be good.
    For example, if you enter "NO " (with space), a list of options is shown? How many options?
    In pt-BR appear 23 options.

    translate by Google

    Hey ticao2,

    I searched the source files for the FilterWidget-file, I only found FilterWidget.cpp with hard coded filter strings in english, but that file only has about 750 lines not as you mentioned more than 2000 lines.

    When I filter for "no " (with space) i indeed get about 23 options. The other filter keywords you mentioned seem to work too, thats why I asked where you got that list from :) Like I said before, together with the Kodi functions thats all I want for filter and sorting options for now.
