Filter Properties Grid
Throughout the Project Dashboard there is a standard properties grid which will display when defining certain items similar to the one shown below:
|Show Parent Properties (Class Browser)||Used in the Class Browser, this option toggles the display of the inherent properties of the parent class(es). These properties are shaded in gray and are read only.|
|Sort Alphabetically||This option is disabled if the Show Parent Properties is not enabled. It sorts the Property records alphabetically by the Property Name.|
|Filter Results||You can filter the display in the grid using a couple of different methods:
To edit an existing filter, click the Edit Filter option and use Filter Editor dialog to make any changes.
|Navigation Helper Toolbar||The toolbar at the bottom of the grid provides the following options:
|Column Edit||The Column Edit option is available from the main tool ribbon and displays the following dialog listing the property columns which display in the Properties grid. The checked items will be editable in the grid, while items that are unchecked will be Read-Only.|
|Tool Ribbon||The Property Tool Ribbon options are also available to use for the Properties grid.|
Right-click Sorting Menu
Right-click in any of the column headers to display the following sort menu providing options to control the display of the properties:
|Sort Ascending||Sorts the column data in ascending order.|
|Sort Descending||Sorts the column data in descending order.|
|Clear Sorting||Clears the current sorting option.|
|Group By This Column||The grid view can be rearranged to display results by groups using the column headers. To group the results, drag a column header into the Hide Group By Box (empty area) above the column headers. This will group the results using the values in that column. You can drag additional columns into the area to group your results. As you drag a new column, it will be nested underneath the previous one. The result is similar to example shown below with the Lookup List Manager.
To remove the grouping, drag the group back into the column header section of the grid.
|Hide Group By Box||Hides the section mentioned above which allows you to Group by Column using the drag and drop method.|
|Remove This Column||Removes the column from the display.|
|Column Chooser||Displays the GUID-97EA5A97-3AB2-4A60-8F30-BF22B028840E allowing you to determine which columns to display in the grid.|
|Best Fit||Sizes the selected column to fit the contents.|
|Best Fit (all columns)||Sizes all columns to fit the contents.|
|Filter Editor||Displays the GUID-10AFD563-E3F9-4F76-BB8A-7E930156A39B allowing you to modify the existing filter.|
|Show Find Panel||Displays a search field where you can enter specific items to search for.|
|Hide Auto Filter Row||The grid provide an auto filter row, which allows you to type in a value for any of the grid columns and the grid will automatically be filtered to display records with that value.
The Hide Auto Filter Row turns off this option.
Menu Panel Group Options
When you group the property grid by dragging a column(s) into the grouping area, a right-click menu is available with the following options for controlling the display of the groups:
|Menu Group Panel Full Expand||Displays the group results in an expanded view which means that all of the records under the group are expanded for viewing.|
|Menu Group Panel Full Collapse||Displays the group results collapsed with no|
|Menu Group Panel Clear Grouping||Clears any grouping that has been applied to the grid.|
|Hide Group By Box||Hides the Group By Box which is the area where you drag column headers into to group the display of results.|
