0.51: strange quick search results

Post by PBY »

Hi,

I wanted to filter photos by the searching of a tag. The first time I wrote the tag in the quick search field of the browser, all correctly tagged photos were displayed.
The second time, on another folder, I saw only the photos having only the search tag (no additional tags).

When searching with the advanced search for the tag, all photos with the tag are shown, regardless of the presence of other tags.

The quick search should either not search in tag field, or correctly interpret the tag field (separate tags before searching).

Best regards,
PBY

After some more tests, it seems that the problem occurs when the user is going too fast: if a text is entered in the quick search while the images metadata are still loading, the loading is stopped and the search only goes on the already loaded metadata. Must change of folder for forcing a reload of metadata.

Either the quick search should be disabled during load, or the loading should be not canceled and the search redone at the end of the loading.

Now the problem is more limited: the quick search stop the loading, but removing the searched text restart the search.
At least, the user must not change of folder to get the full result.
