Thanks for your testing & reports :Thmbsup:

New version. Adds auto-focus for XML search and game info tab.

Download: BGGfetch_v0-1-Alpha20220303-0.zip



(BTW: Jesse/Mouser is aware of these releases & is currently in the process of testing. As the original requester, he has the final word on the program so it's in good hands :up:)

Today's version adds sorting by ID, year and name with "DESC" modifier:

It also fixes/adds new line before description in game info.

This is looking pretty darn good!!
I like the ability to sort the results, and the Game Info list is nice.
Maybe add an option for the direction of the sort (ascending vs descending)?

It doesn't seem to be crashing on me anymore, which is the huge improvement!
The API delay is a bit annoying, but maybe that's can't be helped..  What happens if you turn off the API delay, does the server refuse to respond? Maybe add an option if it's up to the user ..

Here's a request: In the Game Info box can we start with entries for
Name:
Year:
Description:

This can be the same info from the fetch result list, it would just be more useful if it was also in the Game Info box.

Thank you for making this!
