Version: 0.9.2 (using KDE 3.5.8)
In the New Advanced Search dialog, the selection of tags is very difficult. All the tags are listed as paths in a dropdown box that shows only 10 tags. Also, the tags seem to be listed in the order they were added, not in hierarchal order. I recommend that this be replaced with the traditional hierarchal selection method: only the top level tags are shown until one is selected, and one must click through the hierarchy in order to get to the tag he needs.
Marcel, currently working on this subject with KDE4 port of digiKam
Following recents progress into new Advanced Search tools from Marcel with KDE4 port, i close this file.
Search tools have been rewritten. Screenshots are available at this url:
Alright, Gilles. I have had a real hard time trying to build from CVS, so I cannot check this myself. But from the screenshot 02.png, it does not look like the issue has been addressed. That screenshot shows that Tags (Return pictures with tag) is still a dropdown box. That implies that the hierarchy is not preserved. When I get the latest Digikam compiled, I'll check this and reopen the bug if necessary, with details and screenshots. Thanks.
If you apply some advanced magic, you can put a QTreeView into a QComboBox.
That is done in the new search window. This means the popup of the combobox will show the full tree hierarchy with icon and allows you to selected multiple albums/tags with the supplied checkboxes.

new version of patch
I'll just reopen the bug, because it is still present in the KDE3 version.
Added some more comments to the patch.
reopening bug because the KDE3 branch has still wrong filtering of tags in advanced search dialog.
Thanks for the work, Andi. I cannot currently test it, but I am certain that it will benefit Digikam.
