Fetch informations for multiple items at same time

Hi,
I haven't found a way to fetch informations for multiple items, with one click.
Is this functionality present in the current svn version?

I think it's a good functionality, specially when we need to add our big collection of items from scratch.
For example, I've a collection of about 500 Audio CD, and want to catalog them with GCStar.
I've to click "add items" and "Fetch Informations" buttons for each CD.
I don't like it.
What I like is the behaviour present in "MusicCollector" (Windows program).
In it there is a section for adding multiple items.
Practically, I insert a CD in my drive, and it's automatically added to the list of items to be processed;
I repeat this operation for all my CDs.
So I've a list of items to be processed.
Then click on the "Fecth" button, and informations are retrieved for each CD, according to the sites selected.
Then click on the "Add" buttons, and all items are loaded in my collection.

So, is there something like this in current version?
Because, if not, I want to try to implement it.
I've seen in the current version is possible to recognize CD inserted in a drive and fecth informations trough freedb.org, so it may be a good starting point.

What do you think?

Bye

Re: Fetch informations for multiple items at same time

Hi, Im new with GcStar. Looks great but my personal collection is huge > thousand of files. Adding it one file at a time is impossible task.
Without multiple file adding (drag and drop, at least from one directory) it's almost usless....
Please do your best to add multiple adding of files

Re: Fetch informations for multiple items at same time

It would also be great if I could use a barcode reader and scan in as many books/comics/dvds all at once, then do an internet lookup.

Having to click Add, book, finding the right field, scanning, hitting "search"...takes way too long.

Should you have a problem using GCstar, you can open a bug report or request some support on GCstar forums.
