HI.

Just wondering if there is an add-on/component available allows me to do away with remembering syntaxes.

Ideally something that might a drop down menu with all the different possible fields right there, so i could just select %whatever% IS %whatever% instead of having to type these out each time.

Does anything like this or similar exist?

I don't like the idea because of a simple reason: a huge list with cryptic search queries is not human readable enough. However, foo_quicksearch will allow you to store favourites in its context menu and also offers a history menu which size is definable in the preferences. This component shows the search results in a playlist.

How about an Autoplaylist? It'll let you save a search to a playlist, that automatically updates every time the library changes. You can also name the Autoplaylist whatever you like.

how about foo_dbsearch? link's here: Documentation

you can add your favorite tags to the list of queries, I use
CODE
[$meta(artist)]|[$meta(album)]|[$meta(title)]|[%genre%][:%mood%]|[$meta(date)]|[$meta(rating)]|[$meta(composer)]|[%album artist%][%filename%]$if(%rating%,nxx)$if(%setlist%,sxx)
but you can use your %whatever% IS %whatever% changing the syntax to the old titleformat thingy
