    Tag Values

    Reading the tutorial on Naming trying to understand the programming syntax for what is Tag Value?

    IFEQUALS]tag,equals,string[] - tests the given tag value against "equals". If they are equal, the string is included in the naming scheme
    [IF!EQUALS]tag,equals,string[] - tests the given tag value against "equals". If they are NOT equal, the string is included in the naming scheme
    [IFVALUE]tag,strifvalue,strnovalue[]

    Don't understand what tag value is and how it is used?

    Thanks

    Tag value is the content of a tag field. For example, in the following naming string, the "IFVALUE" function looks to see whether there is a non blank tag field for "album artist". If there is, it will use that value (i.e., the tag value is the contents of "album artist") to create a directory, if the "album artist" field is blank, it will instead create the directory using the tag value for "artist" tag value. This is just basically IF/THEN STATEMENT programming.

    [IFVALUE]album artist,[album artist],[artist][]\[album][IFMULTI]\Disc [disc][]\[track] - [title]
