I am adding a detail panel to Jaikoz, thats shows details of the currently selected record. The first panel is a read only summary , but other panels are editable allowing you to change the details, and the changes get reflected in the datasheet immediately. The panels will contain information broadly similar to what you would get by selecting on 'Get Info' on a record within iTunes but will also contain additional MusicBrainz Info.
Below is a screenshot of the mac version:
The idea is that you can get access to all information without having to scroll right as you sometimes have to do using the datasheet, and can quickly edit that information as well. The information is also presented in an audioformat independent way rather than ID3 specific as is the case with the datasheet view.
I would be interested in any suggestions you have for this.
It'd be great to be able to customise which fields would appear in the details panel - just an idea...
Thats a good idea in the long run. But one of the aims of adding this was to make Jaikoz simpler to use for casual users so I will release with predefined layouts to start with, using iTunes getInfo() as an inspiration.
