Cover Art Browser - Init Sort Order
#1
Dean,
Not sure if this is a Beta thing or not. Trying to get rid once and for all my dependance on itunes(worst software ever).  Have the file tag repo working but when the cover art browser comes up it is sorted by title.
I have the Init Sort Order set to "By Artist" but does not appear to work or I am doing something wrong.

If on template load, I do this it works but it causes the WebRiva some issues.
-ArtBrowser::SetSortOrder
    P1=By Artist

Would rather use the Init Sort Order by Artist on the Cover Art Browser.

Although I didn't find any reference to the init sort order in the docs. Hope I am using it correctly.

also assume this is a typo in the cover art browser doc.(like you don't have enough to do)

Set it in OnPreload so that it's already set before the CAB event loads and see if that doesn't make it happy.

Changing from OnLoad to OnPreload worked.
Thanks again, Kevin

As a general rule, anything you can do in the preload, take advantage of that. When it's done in the preload it just updates the widget's data before it starts initializing so those values just become the initial values. When you do things on load, it's already loaded up and then it has to re-do things after they've already been done. So it's a lot more efficient to do things in the preload if you can.
