Inconsistant behaviour of Album Date display after changing Date property of songs [#17653, #17658]

Post by stoffel65 »

After changing the "Date" Property of all Songs in an album I would expect that the new Date is displayed below/behind Album Title
This is not always the case!
- changing all song dates from say 2015 to <empty> results in the old date 2015 still being displayed, even if all songs have empty date (I even had a situation where the date wasn't synchronized at all, until I restarted the app)
- changing all song dates from say 2015 to 2016 results in the new date being displayed most of the time, but
- having an album with only one song, the new date is only displayed *after* you scroll the view resulting in a window refresh

This behaviour seems little weird...
After restart of MM5 and refresh of archive, all is synchronized again

Thanks! Tracking this at https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=17653

However, I'm unable to replicate the second case in which the infopanel date doesn't update immediately when editing a one-track album. Can you clarify the steps (e.g. what view, perhaps a screenshot or video)?

Thanks so much!

Okay, I'm giving my best here, this is my first Screen capture Video under Windows 10 ;-) So please be kind...

You see an album "Further Away" with just one track. Track is dated 2000, so is the album.
Then I change the track date to 1999 via Property and you see... nothing! Sorry, but the Property-Dialog is not recorded by the standard Windows 10 recording software, don't know why. You can only guess it when the screen dimms. Just believe me, that it's happening ;-)
Afterwards album date at the two marked positions is still 2000, but when I scroll the frame a little bit, the date under Albumcover flips to 1999, which I did enter! Whereas the Date below stays at 2000
Very wired indeed... ;-)
