Defaulting Datagrid Search Types in RecTrac

Date Posted:

datagrid_searchRecTrac 3.1 relies heavily on datagrids. Datagrid columns often have configurable search fields, where you can enter text to search on and indicate how RecTrac should run the search:

  • Begins with
  • Equals
  • Contains
  • Etc.

“Begins With” is often the default search, but “Contains” is a much more powerful search, as it will locate the search text no matter where it is in the field.  It is easy to default the search to the “Contains” type:

  1. Begin by navigating to Management > System Management > Screen Management > Management Screen Management.
  2. Click the “Update Default Widgets?” button at the bottom of the screen.
  3. On the Management Screen Update screen, select the “DefaultWidget_CharacterFillin” field.
  4. On the left side, click the pencil next to “FilterOptionDefault,” and change the option to “Contains.”
  5. Click the check to switch it back to a pencil, then click “Done” to save.

The next time you run a search from a datagrid column, it should default to “Contains.”
