The Filter Elements correspond to the various building blocks of TejonDb. Once a Filter Element is dragged onto the Filter Designer, double-clicking will open it so its properties can be set and viewed.
Every Filter Element can either include (green) or exclude (red) it’s results in the Filter.
Once a Filter Element is defined and saved using the OK button, The Filter Element on the Filter Designer will display the number of object found by that Filter Element. The number of objects found is not affected by any other Filter Element. It’s solely the number of Objects that individual Filter Element found.
The Type/Status Filter Element
The most common Filter Element is the Type/Status Filter Element. This element finds objects of a selected type and statuses.
In the Main Browse, when a type is selected the Main Browse always includes any objects that are sub-types as well. However, here in the Type/Status Filter Element, including subtypes is the default, but it can be turned off.
The Region Filter Element
The Region Filter Element finds all the objects within a selected Region and it’s sub-regions.
The Location Filter Element
The location Filter Element works with the object’s contact data to find objects. It can find objects within or any distance from a Country, Province/state, city or zip code.
