Show Search Text Option

< appboard | 2.4 | builder | widgets | options

The "Show Search Text" option is provided in most AppBoard Widgets. It allows the Widget administrator to provide a search box to the end-user. If the end-user enters a string in the search box, the data underlying the Widget will be temporarily filtered so that only records containing the text will be displayed. The resulting filter applies only to the Widget containing the search box, and not to any other Widgets, even if they are on the same Board and using the same Data Collection.

The search filter applies to all data in the record, even fields that are not currently displayed in the Widget.

Configure the Show Search Text Option

Perform the following steps to configure the Show Search Text Option for a Widget:

  1. Create a Widget and launch the Widget editor.
  2. On the Options tab, check the Show Search Text box.
