    Sorry if this is a stupid question but I can't figure it out. I am trying to display the Series Name (i.e. "Seinfeld") in the Episode View. Unfortunately #TVSeries.Title displays the episode name in Episode view. Is there a property that is view independent (I thought it would be something like #TVSeries.Series.Title but it's not :confused:).

    There's probably a very simple answer that I am missing.

    :D

    Basically you can use all Database fields as properties, the easiest way to get a list of them open the database in DB Editor e.g. SQLite Database Browser.

    You can then use all the field names from the episode/series tables.

    Thanks, that worked great for Series properties, however, I can't seem to get the Season properties to work. For example I want to display the Series Name and Season in episode view (i.e. Seinfeld Season 1), but both #TVSeries.Season.SeasonIndex and #TVSeries.Series.SeasonIndex don't work. Where can I find the mapping between the second element (after #TVSeries) and the table name? For example, #TVSeries.Series maps to online_series.

    :D

    You could could create a control with this label in your episode view:

    #TVSeries.Series.Pretty_Name Season #TVSeries.Episode.SeasonIndex

    That would create a string like: "24 Season 1"

    :oops:

    Sorry, I had made an unrelated mistake which I didn't include in this post which prevented me from doing what I was trying to do.

    I did try #TVSeries.Episode.SeasonIndex before, but my syntax was:

    <label>#TVSeries.Series.Pretty_Name (Season #TVSeries.Episode.SeasonIndex)</label>

    I didn't realize (until now) that a space is required after the property. Now that I added the space everything is working great.

    :D
