Table View

Fig. 1: Table view

With the drop-down menu Columns you can show and hide different attributes of a DDO. The column settings are saved individually per object type and user. Fig. 2: Show and hide table columns

By default, only the number, title and description attributes are displayed.

The table view provides two different possibilities to reduce the number of rows displayed. With the column filter, the rows can be filtered according to certain criteria, so that the rows that do not meet these criteria are hidden. Filters can be defined for all columns showing the filter icon in the header.

Unlike the column filter, a query reduces the information loaded from the repository. Queries and filters can also be combined so that the filter is applied only to the result of the query.

The table view offers you different filter options depending on the cell content. Whenever you click on the filter icon in the column header, a listing of all values of the column is listed directly. However, this is less useful especially for numerical values. In the search field, depending on whether there are text or numerical values in your column, numerical and text filters are also suggested to you.

Auto Filter

The autofilter allows you to select individual rows that are then displayed in the view. To add an autofilter click on the filter icon and the filter menu will expand. Select from the list what should be included in the filter and click OK to apply the filter. Fig. 4: Tablev view: Filter on PUID. Only simple filters can be defined with the autofilter. For more complex filter, you need to use a text filter or a query.

Text Filter

Remove Filter

To delete the filter of a single column, click on the filter icon and then on Remove ilter.

Action Description

To create a new DDO click on the add icon in the toolbar above the table. A dialog box (figure 5) is displayed in which, depending on the object type, the attributes of the design data object can be edited. Click on the OK button to create a new object. The newly created object is added to table regardless of any filter settings.

A single attribute of a DDO can be edited by clicking on the corresponding cell in the table. The edit dialog will show up to edit the attribute's value as shown in figure 6.

Click on SET to close the dialog and apply the changes to the table or click on CANCEL to close the dialog without modifying the attribute.

If the attribute value has been modified the row is marked as changed and the button for saving or undoing the changes will be displayed (figure 7). Fig. 7: DDO with unsaved changes

Click the check box Enable multiple selection to enable the multiple selection mode for editing an attribute in multiple design data objects simultaneously.
