is there a way to change the field remappings? for instance, i want to make use of the MB-supplied ORIGYEAR field when possible for the %DATE% field.. --[[User:Herr klang|Herr klang]] 15:33, 12 Jun 2005 (CDT)

== Editing guidelines ==
 +
* Do not document redundant fields such as %playlist_number%. When there is more than one way to do something, only document the way that is described in the official manual; the other ones may be old version leftovers or temporary for some other reason.
 +
* Remember: less information is better if it still satisfies 99.99% of the people reading this.
  
IMO, this page is too complicated and too long. Suggest a table formatted version. See titleformat_help.html in your foobar program directory. Perhaps this page should exist as an expanded version to be consistent? --[[User:Reglib|Reglib]] 02:01, 3 May 2006 (CDT)

In my opinion the metadata description needs to be expanded.
! %album artist%
+
For instance, I have no idea what the following means, or what the function does based on that argument:
| Defined as ''$if3($meta(album artist),$meta(artist),$meta(composer),$meta(performer))''.
+
Example: $meta(artist) "He, She, It"
|-
+
At least put a proper artist title in the quotations to give us an adequate description of the function. [[Special:Contributions/68.80.11.34|68.80.11.34]] 07:59, 2 October 2012 (CEST)

== Control flow ==
+
The functions in this section can be used to conditionally execute statements.
+
{| border=1 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=2 style=""
+
! [...]
+
| Evaluates the expression between ''['' and '']''. If it has the truth value ''true'', its string value and the truth value ''true'' are returned. Otherwise an empty string and ''false'' are returned.
+
 
+
Example: ''[%artist%]'' returns the value of the artist tag, if it exists. Otherwise it returns nothing, when ''%artist%'' would return "?".
+
|-
+
! $if(cond,then)
+
| If ''cond'' evaluates to ''true'', the ''then'' part is evaluated and its value returned. Otherwise, ''false'' is returned.
+
|-
+
! $if(cond,then,else)
+
| If ''cond'' evaluates to ''true'', the ''then'' part is evaluated and its value returned. Otherwise, the ''else'' part is evaluated and its value returned.
+
|-
+
! $if2(a,else)
+
| Like ''$if(a,a,else)'' except that ''a'' is only evaluated once.
+
|-
+
! $if3(a1,a2,...,aN,else)
+
| Evaluates arguments ''a1'' ... ''aN'', until one is found that evaluates to ''true''. If that happens, its value is returned. Otherwise the ''else'' part is evaluated and its value returned.
+
|-
+
! $ifgreater(n1,n2,then,else)
+
| Compares the integer numbers ''n1'' and ''n2'', if ''n1'' is greater than ''n2'', the ''then'' part is evaluated and its value returned. Otherwise the ''else'' part is evaluated and its value returned.

! $iflonger(s1,s2,then,else)
+
| Compares the length of the strings ''s1'' and ''s2'', if ''s1'' is longer than ''s2'', the ''then'' part is evaluated and its value returned. Otherwise the ''else'' part is evaluated and its value returned.
+
|-
+
! $select(n,a1,...,aN)
+
| If the value of ''n'' is between 1 and N, ''an'' is evaluated and its value returned. Otherwise ''false'' is returned.
+
|}
+
 
+
 
+
== Arithmetic functions ==
+
 
+
The functions in this section can be used to perform arithmetic on integer numbers. A string will be automatically converted to a number and vice versa. The conversion to a number uses the longest prefix of the string, that can be interpreted as number. Leading whitespace is ignored.
+
 
+
Example: "c3po" -> 0, " -12" -> -12, but "- 12" -> 0
+
{| border=1 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=2
+
! $add(a,b)

+
|}
+
 
+
 
+
== Boolean functions ==
+
The functions in this section can be used to work with truth values (''true'' and ''false''), which have no explicit representation in titleformat scripts. They do not return a string or number value. You can use them for more complex conditions with ''$if'' and related functions.
+
{| border=1 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=2
+
! $and(...)
+
| Logical And of an arbitrary number of arguments. Returns ''true'', if and only if all arguments evaluate to ''true''.

+
|-
+
! $or(...)
+
| Logical Or of an arbitrary number of arguments. Returns ''true'', if at least one argument evaluates to ''true''.
+
 
+
Special case: ''$or(x,y)'' is ''true'', if ''x'' or ''y'' is ''true'', or if both are ''true''. Otherwise it is ''false''.
+
|-
+

If ''part'' is greater than or equal to ''total'', ''color2'' is returned. Otherwise a blended color is returned that is ''part'' parts ''color1'' and ''total''-''part'' parts ''color2''. The blending is performed in the RGB color space.

+
! $hsl()
+
| Resets the text color to the default color.
+
|-
+
! $hsl(h,s,l)
+

The ranges of ''h'', ''s'', and ''l'' are from 0 to 240; the function is designed to interpret those values in the same way as the standard Windows color dialog.
+
|-

+
|-
+
! $rgb()
+
| Resets the text color to the default color.
+
|-
+
! $rgb(r,g,b)
+
| Sets the color for text. ''r'', ''g'' and ''b'' are the red, green and blue component of the color for unselected text. The color for selected text is set to the inverse color.
+
|-
+
! $rgb(r1,g1,b1,r2,g2,b2)
+
| Sets the color for text. ''r1'', ''g1'' and ''b1'' are the red, green and blue component of the color for unselected text. ''r2'', ''g2'' and ''b2'' are the red, green and blue component of the color for selected text.
+
|-
+
! $transition(string,color1,color2)
+
|Inserts color codes into ''string'', so that the first character has ''color1'', the last character has ''color2'', and intermediate characters have blended colors. The blending is performed in the RGB color space. Note that color codes are additional characters that will also be counted by string manipulation functions. For example, if you need to truncate a string, you should do this before applying ''$transition''.

Editing guidelines[edit]

  • Do not document redundant fields such as %playlist_number%. When there is more than one way to do something, only document the way that is described in the official manual; the other ones may be old version leftovers or temporary for some other reason.
  • Remember: less information is better if it still satisfies 99.99% of the people reading this.

Metadata[edit]

In my opinion the metadata description needs to be expanded. For instance, I have no idea what the following means, or what the function does based on that argument: Example: $meta(artist) → "He, She, It" At least put a proper artist title in the quotations to give us an adequate description of the function. 68.80.11.34 07:59, 2 October 2012 (CEST)
