Maximum # of Performer attributes?
« on: July 25, 2008, 08:54:30 pm »
Howdy,

I currently have 858 movies ripped, which have 31438 Performer (FK_AttributeType = '2') attributes (avg 37 performers/movie).  In both UI 1 & 2, Sort by Performer is only displaying from "Katie Mullins" to the end of the alphabet.

Any hints on where I can find the limit on number of performers?

Thank you,
Roy

there are no intrinsic limitations at the database or sql2cpp level.

most likely, try looking at the datagrid code in Orbiter.

Also make sure to check performer names for special characters. I had a name in quotes that was added to the database automatically when I burnt a DVD once, and I had some strange datagrid behavior at that time.

Really good idea.  I know some titles have non-standard characters (ex: AEon Flux, Deva Vu).  I'll write a query tomorrow to check performers for non-standard characters.

Thank you,
