Using search in filter controls
This article shows you how to use the search functionality that is built into various filter controls.
2. Member filters
Member and member range filters have a search box which is accessible when you switch to View mode. This lets you search for specific hierarchy members.
As you type your search text in the box, a flat list of search results is displayed. If a search result item corresponds to an intermediate hierarchy level, you can expand the item further to see its child items.
If you want to know what hierarchy level a search result item corresponds to, hover over the item to see its level and caption displayed in a tooltip.
If you want to hide the search box for a member filter, go to its Look Properties and uncheck the Show Search property.
3. Textbox filter
The textbox filter control can be connected to text-based columns (e.g., FirstName) as well as single/collection parameters. This means the textbox filter can be used to filter hierarchies as well.
To use the textbox filter, type your search text and then press Enter.
In the case of a hierarchy, you can enable the textbox filter's Re-Search On Load property to have it re-search the hierarchy whenever the dashboard is loaded.
