Filtering Data in grids

The filter row is at the very top of the grid and has a pale yellow background to identify it.  The view screens show a list of items in a grid and these grids have the ability to sort and filter data. Lets take a quick look.




Here we can see that it has been filtered to show items where the Score starts with the text "Accept" . You can apply filters to quickly see just the items that you are interested in and then choose an item to edit.


You can see what filters are being applied as they are summarised below the grid on the left had side. You can toggle the filter on and off by checking / unchecking the filter check box.

More Complex filtering

By default the filter applies based upon looking for text that starts with the value you enter. You can change this by clicking on the filter icon next to a column that you want to filter. Each column can be filtered differently so you can have where Score Name starts with "Accep" and also where Category equals "Open" its very flexible.
