I have now removed all the DJ 2020 related item and have been adding more tracks to my design copy.
Also been working on the site sections.

The main control of DJ 2020 has been updated to only include music related items plus a random list of 15 tracks can be gernerated which in turn opens the music player for the selected track/List



Have removed the requirment to login now the user can choose whether thay want to enable it via the preferences screen belowSee "Security Settings":



I have made a good start on the Playlist using the DJ 2020 Playlist screen and adapting it so you cannot add the same track into the list that already contains that track, It still needs a good clean up but the basic works just fine

Have started work on the main Music Player This screen will display the complete playable list of tracks.
There will be filtering for the Following Available:
Artists/groups
Albums "Still Thinking on the final list for I.E. Arist/Album??"
Category
Dance Type "Left for compatibilitywith DJ 2020 so can be imported from DJ 2020"
Collection
Plays "Each track when plays creats a play item which can be filtered Apollo & DJ 2020"
Recording Format "Single/Album Ect" This will only show the formats that have had tracks added like compilations/Albums with tracks or singles with tracks or even custom lists
Playlist

You will also be able to add Tracks to Playlist(s)

I am toying with the idear of allow adding to other lists but will only if the object does not become over complex to manage.

I am currently running the random list with all 20,333 tracks which I will keep going for a few hours while I'm doing other jobs on PC.
I have another 40,000+ tracks to add but will keep adding tracks so might have a test recordset of 30,000+ by the time Apollo is ready for release.

Another good day had a few issues I had to overcome but things seem to be moving along nicely.

I have now limited the number of records the library will display when it starts to 6,000 this number may change I have coded button 10 which is the reset button which also displays the complete tracks list, But I may put an option in preferences to enable other options.



Below is the result of clicking button 1 You can filter the list of artists then select one or more items, This will update as you type.

I have got a lot done today most of the fiddly bits have been sorted.

First is the Artists Albums You type in an artists or part of a name then select the album(s)



Next is The genre, you can select one or more from the list as it's added by default when you click the button or limit the list with a Genre Name




Finally There's the Add to lists, Collection, Genre, Dance Type And Playlists.
You can create new items by adding them to a list click the button next to a list to add the track playng to the selected list, NOTE You can only access these objects when playing a track.

I have done a bit today solved one of the main problems in that most lists were showing the same track muitiple times that has been corrected.

Added the Dance Types Filter



Also added the collections filter



Plus The number of plays filter You should not playing tracks will not effect the list as the system has been setup to handle that.

Have Completed this screen Plus Updated the artists filter view to include The Album related to the track.
I have a few Idears one making the UI easier to unterstand which I will add later today.

I may also add an additional filter above the main list so you can filter by a Track name or part of a name as I have over 20,000 Tracks some lists are large.

Updated Artist Filter Display

Well, I keep on tweaking and Now I know I'm at the point of diminishing returns, I won’t do anymore to Apollo it has been a few days without any errors, plus I don't think trying to push it further will be beneficial, so will release it in a day or two depends on whether the Mrs will let me on my PC lol.

P.S.
I will be editing DJ 2020 As there are a number of improvements I have found while working On Apollo the new file will be available soon and will work with your current Data file.
