Found a bug when you double click an entry in Statistics. Fixed now in ProfilerQuery 3.39.1.

Mother of mercy, is this the end of ProfilerQuery?

Well, it's possibly more a case of me liking to paraphrase famous movie quotes. In this case Edward G. Robinson's last words in Little Caesar.

But ... it is an attempt to sweep the idea closet and put all the odd bits into ProfilerQuery. So in this version you get a number of new fields that you probably never knew you needed (and quite possibly never will). They are:
- Number of Genres
- Number of MediaCompanies
- Number of Missing Boxset Children
- Number of Regions
- Number of Studios
- Number of Times Watched
- Number of CoO:s
- Number of Directors
- Wishlist Priority
- Is Part of Owned Collection

I have finally added an option to append articles in the result. Useful if you like to sort the result by title. See Settings.
I have added "Los" to the list of articles. The will screw with titles like "Los Angeles Plays Itself", but Profiler does the same.
In the result, "Die" is not considered an article (and it's not an option like it is in Check sort titles). Again, it's the way Profiler does it.

Number of cast and Number of crew no longer count dividers, just actual persons.

Finally, I have restored the custom windows design that got lost somewhere around version 3.35.

So, does this mean that ProfilerQuery is now finished? Hm, I have thought that several times before, and I have proved myself wrong. Only time will tell if version 3.40 is the end of ProfilerQuery.

I thought I had tested everything (hah!) but apparently I forgot to test what happens if you export your collection and exclude crew. That bombed the new ProfilerData dll.

So here is the fixed version. ProfilerQuery gets a new version number, even though there is actually no changes in the main program itself, just in the included ProfilerData.dll.

ProfilerQuery 3.40.1

Here's another quick update.

I was asked about Custom Media Types. I hadn't given it any thought, since I don't use them myself, but I found that it wasn't hard to incorporate them in ProfilerQuery.

Note, though, that they will not show up in the dropdown list when you select  Media Types as a selection criteria, but you can type in the name of the custom media type.

So if you want to include VHS or CD or whatever as custom media types, that's now possible.

Like the previous update, this is really only an update of the ProfilerData dll, but it is now ProfilerQuery 3.40.2.

ProfilerQuery 3.41.0

I have added a new field, Watched Note. I had overlooked this, because I never make any notes when I flag profiles as watched. But I added it to my ToDo list when there was a question about this field in the forum, and now I have implemented it.

I also fixed a bug where numeric fields of the type Double (i.e. fields that can have decimals) could be shown as "[missing]" on systems that use decimal comma rather than decimal point.

ProfilerQuery 3.41.2

Fixed a problem with Is not equal to and Is missing array comparisons when the array was empty.

For example "Tags is not equal to Qwerty" would return False if there were no tags.

ProfilerQuery 3.42.0

I found a nasty little bug in a seldom used feature - Select parent based on child property. It would crash if you had boxset (or combo) profiles where the child profiles were not downloaded. Fixed now. 

While I was at it, I fixed a very old misfeature: The special selection criteria (And/Or, Boxset Special) were not saved on exit. So even though the regular selection criteria and the presentation criteria were restored upon start, those special criteria were not. So you did in fact not necessarily have the same condition as when you left ProfilerQuery last time. Now you do. 

I also fixed another thing that irritated me. If the computer was restarted, the settings and criteria were not saved. I hadn't realized that closing an application due to a reboot did not trigger the Closing event. Instead I had to catch the ApplicationEnding event. Now both these events will save the settings and criteria. Thanks for the confusion, Microsoft! 

Of course, normally one wouldn't reboot the computer without saving what needs to be saved. But sometimes the good folks at Microsoft decide to do it for you after a Windows update. So if you didn't watch out ... 

And that led me to a final little feature. If the above reboot happens, not only will ProfileQuery save the settings and criteria. It will also automatically restart after the reboot, and rerun the last query, so you won't even notice that it's been gone. 

How did you ever live without these essential features?

ProfilerQuery 3.42.1

When ProfilerQuery opens an export file, the dialog defaults to the directory you loaded from last time. If that directory no longer exists, you would get an error. Fixed in this version.
