Requires the Power Search for Reports Embedded in Dialog Components feature pack, included in subscription
The Dialog Component can be used to create a 'Search Part' for a Report so that the end-user can enter search ctieria to define exactly which records to display in the report.
How it works
- Filtering a Grid with Quick Search
/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/Grid/Grid Properties/Quick Search/Filtering a Grid with Quick Search.xml
Quick Searchis an option for a grid component that allows you to quickly filter and re-display its contents.
To add Quick Search to a grid:
- Defining a Quick Search
/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/Grid/Grid Properties/Quick Search/Defining a Quick Search.xml
The Quick Search feature allows you to make a search control part of a grid.
- Using Global Search of Scripts and Functions
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/View/Control Panel/Using Global Search of Scripts and Functions.xml
The Code tab in the Control Panel lets you search for a string in all of your global scripts and functions. You can search in all scripts and functions, or you can use wildcard character filters to limit the scripts and functions in which you search.
Display the Code tab, then select Code > Search Scripts and Functions.
- Changing the Locations of the Parts of a Grid Component in an A5W Page
/pages/HowTo/Web Applications/Changing the Locations of the Parts of a Grid Component.xml
When you create a grid component with search and detail view parts and then place the grid onto an A5W page, you will see something like the following.
- Understanding the Grid Nature of a Dialog Box
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Xdialog/Understanding the Grid Nature of a Dialog Box.xml
While Xdialog does a pretty good job of spacing out the controls you define in a logical way, you will typically want to tweak the default layout of a dialog box. The controls on an Xdialog are laid out in much the same way as text is laid out in a document that you create on your word processor (actually a word processor that does not have automatic word-wrap). In a word processor, the characters appear on the line, starting at the left and moving to the right until you press Enter to move to the next line (remember, we are talking about a pretty lame word processor that does not have an automatic word-wrap feature). Then, text appears on the next line until you press Enter to move to the third line and so on. You can line up columns of text in your word processor by using the Tab key.
- Web Grid Geographical Search
/pages/Server/Guide/Design/View/Grid/Web Grid/Web Grid Geographical Search.xml
You can use a map control in the Search Part of a Grid to enter points for a polygon search or to specify the center point and radius for a radius search.
To use a geographic search, your SQL database must support geography types, and your grid must be based on a query that includes a geography field. You need to include the geography field in your search part, and set its control to a map.
- Clear a Search a Grid Component that is Embedded into a UX component
For use in conjunction with the 'Search a Grid Component that is Embedded into a UX' action.
Clears the search form in the UX and removes the filter from the embedded Grid.
- Using a Dialog as a Search Form
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/View/Form/Using a Dialogasa Search Form.xml
Assume you have a grid that shows all the records of a table, such as the following.
