View Data Filter settings?

User moon_1371 2014-04-01 07:37:09

A few view data filter related questions please:

1. I would like to be able to have a data filter on a text field that matches when the field is non-blank. There is not a choice of "Not Equal" (to blanks), so how does one do it? Any thoughts of adding a "Not Equal" option?

2. Are the "Less than" & "More than" filters just for number fields?

3. Is the "Contains" filter a regex pattern to match text? or just a string comparison to find the specified character string somewhere in the field's value?

Hello,


1. I would like to be able to have a data filter on a text field that matches when the field is non-blank. There is not a choice of "Not Equal" (to blanks), so how does one do it? Any thoughts of adding a "Not Equal" option?

This option is thought to use with text or numbers, not blank. If you want special Data filter, maybe you´ll need to add a tweak in code.


2. Are the "Less than" & "More than" filters just for number fields?

It´s not limited in code, but maybe number data is the main use.


3. Is the "Contains" filter a regex pattern to match text? or just a string comparison to find the specified character string somewhere in the field's value?

"Contains" filter is only to search text and, by now, doesn´t accept regex pattern.

Thank you for the prompt replies.

Re: adding a "Not Equal" option

Is there some documentation on how to do this please.

I might suggest that your previous answer also be added to the standard LM documentation which is only up to v 1.2.

thanks

Hello,

There´s no special documentation for this purpouse, in order to make changes or add new functions it would require a source code modification of the extension, so it´s PHP code in Joomla framework.

Thanks for your suggestion.
