Or maybe in the context menu that opens when you right click on a column header.

Just need to make sure your choice is remembered across sessions.

But I'd add a toggle in the option menu for the people who want to totally deactivate the function.

That way everyone's happy.

Having to take an extra step to get the same as current isn't a win. I don't mind that collapsed tracks gets added as long as the way it currently works doesn't get altered.

just so you know Music Match had this collapsible view and could "expand all" with one click which would be the view you use now making this even more desirable for you guys who still want to use the current view! I'm telling you it's a win win!!!!! :wink:

+1 But I would like it as an extra option so dont get rid of the normal default view.

I would like this as well. It would probably best to have the option to set a specific collection to a default view as described above.

Since MM is waiting for more users to request this feature before they'll act on it, I just wanted to add my vote to making this one of the highest MM new development tasks!!! p.s. I'm a Gold user so I paid for MM, if that adds any weight to my request.

well i hope you continue to follow this thread because all we need to do is get a developer from MM involved in this... in the meanwhile I am trying very hard to understand the source code of MM myself(hahhaahha) I have some coding experience so maybe with some luck we can catch a break. I am going to reinstall an old version of musicmatch to compare to how MM is written also. We need to get this to the wishlist wich I have had no real positive response from yet. Great input and thanks for helping us to understand some of the differences!

I dont know I'm not a developer but I work with IT departments to develop apps and we use Telerik controls here instead of Microsoft controls. The control that does all this magic out of the box is made by Telerik, the programmers around here tell me that Microsoft does not make a grid that combines a tree with a grid in the same user interface control. This would not be somethang that can be done with scripting, it woul have to be part of the MM kernal because its essentially a new grid control replacing the current grid control. I dont even know what programming language or platform MM is written in, here at work they use WPF and C# with .NET Framework 4.

I second that.
Flexibility and a feeling of liberty is what I long for in a manager such as Mediamonkey.
The tree grid also lets you sort independent of the grouping, So if you wanted to have the grouping stay locked you can still sort the detail within any group by any columns showing without causing the grid to regroup the rows on the latest sort sequence. I think if this were implemented you could put an option button at the top of the grid with 2 choices (1. Automatically create the grouping hierarchy based on my last sort sequence OR 2. Leave my selected grouping hierarchy alone but let me sort columns without affecting the current grouping hierarchy).

This grid also virtualizes large result sets to only use memory for the few dozen rows that are in view, all other rows are kept out of the grid until they are needed in the viewing rectangle.
