Public Methods

public static String keyFor (String name)

Added in API level 1

Converts a name to a "key" that can be used for grouping, sorting and searching. The rules that govern this conversion are: - remove 'special' characters like ()[]'!?., - remove leading/trailing spaces - convert everything to lowercase - remove leading "the ", "an " and "a " - remove trailing ", the|an|a" - remove accents. This step leaves us with CollationKey data, which is not human readable

Parameters
name String: The artist or album name to convert
Returns
String The "key" for the given name.
