The performance of utility options is consistently growing. That is a goal course of, customers need this system to have the ability to “do every little thing”, and this one does “itself” and “shortly”. The sizes of configurations enhance correspondingly, the variety of configuration objects utilized in particular utility options will increase.
So long as the configuration is trim, it isn’t troublesome to navigate among the many obtainable objects. The tree’s construction, the binding of things to subsystems and the search by the incidence of a substring help you discover the specified object.
Nonetheless, when a configuration incorporates, say, 150 directories, 100 paperwork and no much less variety of registers, discovering the specified object turns into a troublesome job and begins to take a significant period.
We analyzed the everyday issues when looking in giant configurations and applied a brand new search mechanism within the configurator, which is less complicated and extra handy. Its essential variations are looking by several phrases, getting into a search period, and displaying what was discovered correctly within the window through which the work is happening, never in a separate one. The adjustments affected utterly different configurator areas, so it is wise to speak about them individually.
Search within the configuration tree
An area has appeared above the configuration tree, in which you’ll enter fragments of phrases to look, separated by a space. The search shall be carried out routinely. In this case, elements of words shall be searched within the title, synonym and feedback of configuration objects. The search outcomes shall be proven proper within the configuration tree, and the discovered phrase fragments in them shall be highlighted.
The backlight is “sensible” and works as follows:
- if the required merchandise is discovered within the configuration object, then the title of this object is displayed in black;
- on the identical time, if the specified merchandise is discovered within the title (and never in a synonym or remark), then it’s highlighted in crimson proper within the title;
- if the required object is discovered within the subordinate configuration object, however not within the dad or mum, then the title of the dad or mum object is displayed in grey.
Search within the Properties palette
A search field has additionally appeared on the prime of the Properties palette. It works the same means. The distinction is that the discovered properties and configuration gadgets are displayed in a listing without categorization. The search is finished in names or views. You are relying on what’s included within the Properties palette.
Search within the sort choice dialogue
When selecting a sort, you additionally typically must search for the specified configuration object, since lots of them kind their very own varieties. Subsequently, within the knowledge sort modifying window, we have applied the identical search as within the tree of configuration objects.
Search within the configuration object choice dialogue
There are conditions when you might want to choose one of many obtainable configuration objects. For instance, within the configuration properties Essential kind …, or when forming the workspace of the preliminary web page. In these circumstances, the dialogue for choosing a configuration object is used, through which we additionally added a search.
Fast choice by subsystem
It’s attainable within the configuration tree to pick these objects included within the required subsystems solely. For this, a filter by subsystems is used, which, it appears, has all the time existed within the configurator. It’s handy when you might want to choose objects from several subsystems.
However, way more typically, it’s mandatory to pick out objects of a single subsystem. Remarkably for such a job, within the context menu of the subsystem, we made the Subsystem Objects command, which instantly filters the tree of configuration objects by this subsystem. You possibly can take away this choice utilizing the “outdated” By subsystems dialogue.
Fast choice of captured
Objects captured within the storage can now even be chosen quickly. To do that, within the command panel of the configuration tree, we have directly applied the Captured objects command. It may be used independently and along with a subsystem filter and search.
