Basic Properties

  1. Show Search Box (Check Box) - If the check box is selected, the search box in the screen being interfaced will be displayed.
  2. Allow User to Filter by Column (Check Box) – If the check box is selected, screen users will be allowed to create and apply filter rules for search results.
  3. Users Filters Override Default (Check Box) (Only visible if Allow User to Filter by Column Check Box is selected) – If the check box is selected, user filters are applied to search results despite default settings.
  4. Left Text – Static text and dynamic values related to the data source can be entered here. Color, font and text size can also be adjusted.
  5. Left Icon – The icon image displayed for this detailed line. Having no icon selected for display is also an option.
  6. Right Text/Button – Same as left text and left icon combined but on the right-hand side of the field. Color, font and text size can also be adjusted.

A user interaction can also be configured with the same choices as above.

Validation & Behavior

  1. Search Pattern - By default, searching will filter rows based on the user's search text matching anywhere within the displayable row values. This option allows you to specify a replacement regular expression for row matching. Use {{this}} to refer to the user search text in your regular expression. E.g., '^{{this}}' will show rows that start with the search text.
  2. Default Filter - Allows you to specify the default filter formula for this screen. Any incoming filters will override any default filter specified. E.g., {{this[0]}} = ORGMETA('projectId')
