Term

Meaning

Hide Control After Searching

Enter a maximum number of search values to save for each search field. If this value is set to, for example, 10, if another (11th) new search is performed, it is saved but the first saved search is forgotten.

This value is ignored when Save Search Values is set to False.

Treeview Picklist Search Specification

The Treeview Picklist Search Specification properties are described in Table 106.

Term

Meaning

Maximum Nodes per Level

Set the maximum number of nodes at any level. If you set this value lower than the number of nodes available in any level, the first results only are displayed. For example, for Text fields, the results starting with letters at the start of the alphabet are displayed; for numeric fields, the lowest numbers are displayed. The default is 250.

Minimum Levels Before Search Enabled

Set the number of nodes (if available) that must be selected before the Start Search button is available. For example, if this is set to 2, but a node does not have any child nodes, when that node is selected, the Start Search button is available. However, if a node with a child node is selected, the child node must be selected before the Start Search button is available. In the example below, Minimum Levels Before Search Enabled is set to 2. The Start Search button is not available because a top-level node is selected.

However, if the child node John Davis & Associates (or any child node of John Davis & Associates) is selected, the Start Search button is available.

The default is 1.

Show Breadcrumbs

True – fields are displayed above the tree to show the path of the node search. In the example below, the top node is the field Doc level field and the child node is the field Account Name.

Show ‘Latest’ Node for Split Dates

True – the top node is displayed as Latest, as shown in this example.

True – when a node is selected, a search is performed (without having to click the Start Search button).

False – nodes are not searched until the Start Search button is clicked.

Split Dates into Groups

True – dates are grouped by year, month and date (as shown in the example above).
