[TableView] Filter on icons


I have a TableView displayed using an iterator. Basically, some columns referred to flags and, thus, contain an 'X' or space. The iterator looks at their values and display a green led or a red led accordingly.

The problem is that I don't understand how the filtering is working (or, even if it could) for icons ??

I tried 'X' and ' ', and it does not filter.

But, strangely, 'a' and 'b' are filtering some entries but not all...

I must acknowledge I am getting quite confused with this.

Any idea apart from removing the icons ?

Thanks in advance !

Best regards,

    To be honest I would be a little suprised if the standard server filter would have know how to filter on a column with custom rendering like this. I would probably have just assumed it wasn't going to work and created my own custom filter mechanism.

    I am guessing that it is actually filtering on the rendering code for displaying the image. To test that you might try to filter on g.gif, y.gif and r.gif; based upon the image names for the different icons. This might just work.

    • Hi Thomas !

      First, thanks for your reply.

      In fact, I was not too ambitious regarding the standard behaviour for this... 😉

      Indeed, I tried to filter using the name of the images behind the icons (which, by the way, are S_S_LEDR.GIF and S_S_LEDG.GIF) but without any result.

      But, I just found out that the filter is <b>not acting on the column only</b> (as it should) <b>but on the entire row</b> !!

      I close this thread.

      Best regards,
