Showing selected members and tokens in a filter

Contents[Hide]

1. Overview

This article shows you how to configure a filter to show only specific members or show specific tokens in its token menu.

You will also learn how to hide the 'All' item in member filters.

2. Shown Members

Use the Shown Members property of a Member filter to choose the hierarchy members that will be displayed by the filter.

2.1. Hide the All item

Another option you may want to enable is the hiding of the 'All' item. You can do this from the Look properties of the filter. This option is also available for Member Range and Cascading Member filters.

2.2. Multiple selection

The Member filter in the previous example allows multiple selection in View mode. Multiple selection is enabled when the filter's Show Checkboxes property under Look Properties is set to True. Uncheck this option if you want the filter to use single selection instead.

3. Shown Tokens

Use the Shown Tokens property on any filter control to restrict the list of tokens appearing in its token menu.
