Quick Search

For a quick search, use the text boxes displayed in the column headers of any table displayed, the text box contains a magnifying glass image. After a table is displayed for the first time, as characters are typed into the text box, the content of the table will update with entries that contain the characters entered. This type of searching is called Inclusion and is one of several ways to search/filter records displayed. The different modes of searching are accessed using the dropdown button on the right side of the text box.

Filtering System.

The different search/filter options are available through the Filter dropdown list. The options available are:

  • Inclusion: (default) Records where the column data includes the characters entered will be shown in the table. This option is not case-sensitive.
  • Equality: This option will display records where the column data is an exact match for the characters entered. This option is not case-sensitive.
  • Regular Expression: The records displayed are those where the column data matches the regular expression entered.
  • Empty: The records displayed are those where the column data is empty or null.

The options also include an Invert check box. When this box is checked, the records displayed include records where the column data does not match the characters or expression entered and the filter type selected.

Note

If several of these fields are populated with values the results will be based on all fields where input was provided. (i.e. it uses the Boolean operator AND).

When changing the Filter type or Invert selection, the Refresh button Refresh Button in the control components at the top of the display must be clicked . To clear all search/filter criteria click the Clear Search button Clear Seaarch Button in the same collection of controls.
