FilterController Members

Represents a ViewController descendant that contains the FullTextSearch and SetFilter Actions.


Name Description
FilterController() Creates an instance of the FilterController class.


Name Description
ControllerActiveKey static Specifies one of the keys from the ActionBase.Active collection of a Controller's Controller.Actions. By default, this field value is "Controller active". You can use this field when working with the ActionBase.Active collection. Inherited from Controller.
FilterCriteriaName Returns the name of the item in the Criteria collection of the current List View's CollectionSource. This item is updated each time a new filter is selected via the FilterController's Filter Action. By default, this attribute is called "ListViewFilter".
FullTextSearchActionId Holds the FilterController.FullTextFilterAction's identifier.
FullTextSearchCriteriaName When the FilterController.FullTextFilterAction is used to filter a List View, a criterion is passes to the CollectionSourceBase.Criteria dictionary of the List View's Collection Source. This dictionary requires that each criterion must be accompanied by a description. The FullTextSearchCriteriaName constant holds a description of criterions passed to the CollectionSourceBase.Criteria dictionary by the FullTextFilterAction.
ViewIsAssignedReason static Specifies the Controller.Active list's reason that indicates whether a View is assigned to the current ViewController. Inherited from ViewController.

TargetObjectType Specifies a ViewController's target object type. The View Controller is activated only for Views that represent this type. Inherited from ViewController.
TargetViewId Specifies the identifier of the View for which the View Controller is activated, or a semicolon-separated list of identifiers if a View Controller targets multiple Views. Inherited from ViewController.
TargetViewNesting Specifies whether the View for which a View Controller is intended must be root, nested or any. Inherited from ViewController.
TargetViewType Specifies the type of the View, for which a View Controller is intended. Inherited from ViewController.
TypeOfView Specifies the type of the View, for which a View Controller is intended. Inherited from ViewController.
View Provides access to the current List View for which the FilterController is activated.

Dispose() Releases all resources used by the Component. Inherited from Component.
Equals(Object) Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. Inherited from Object.
Equals(Object, Object) static Determines whether the specified object instances are considered equal. Inherited from Object.
GetFullTextSearchProperties() Returns the properties over which the FullTextSearch Action is executed, based on the FilterController.FullTextSearchTargetPropertiesMode property's value.
GetHashCode() Serves as the default hash function. Inherited from Object.
GetLifetimeService() Retrieves the current lifetime service object that controls the lifetime policy for this instance. Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.
GetService(Type) protected Returns an object that represents a service provided by the Component or by its Container. Inherited from Component.
GetType() Gets the Type of the current instance. Inherited from Object.
