searching the library


I've just installed Winamp and have noticed that the search function doesn't appear to include text in the Category column when doing a search. Is this the case or am I not doing the search properly?

Reason this is important to me: I need to be able to classify music files according to the dance style(s) applicable to the music. I usually use multiple classifiers for a single song, for example "ballroom, foxtrot, quickstep". These are currently showing in the Category column. I'd like to be able to search the entire library for single or multiple classifiers at a time. Is this possible?

Create a Smart View,
Use a query string in the search bar, like this:
?category HAS "ballroom"

Go to the advanced mode of the Smart View Editor to see the Query Language Documentation.
