Search in applications
In all Intrexx applications, you will find a main page with the title "Search"
where users can search for terms within the application.
In addition, other search configurations can be created with the help of the
button with the "Search" action
A search in an application can be activated for the global search, which is
implemented across the whole portal, in the
properties of a search configuration
This means that this configuration is available both in the system application
as well as to the additional control Search
from the Design module
The Search element
which you can find in the Elements area
is made up of three individual parts:
- Search field
- Search button
- Results grouping
Here is the corresponding appearance in the browser:
On the Actions tab
in the properties dialog
of the button, you will define the search configuration, the search field,
and the way the results will be shown.
The action type "Search" must be selected here.
Select the desired search configurations here.
Edit search configuration
Click on this button to create new configurations or to edit existing configurations.
Select the element which should be used as the search field here.
Number of search results
Here, determine the maximum number of results which should be displayed in the results table.
Show search settings
In the browser, a button will be displayed which allows you to make additional search settings.
You can define which options are available here in the Tools
module and in the
search configuration's settings
Show search filter
With this setting, the facets (categories), which you can assign to the
application's data fields in the search configuration, and tags - will be
shown next to the search results, if the search is configured for tags and
a tag result is clicked on. Search results are shown beneath the facet to
which the result is assigned. Clicking on this result will filter the
results list. In the system application
the applications, where the results were found, will be listed here as well.
With this setting, you can select whether the facets should be shown positioned
to the right or left of the search field and results.
For technical reasons, facets are unfortunately not subject to permission checks.
Therefore, users can potentially see facets, which were generated in an application
and which they do not actually possess read access for, during the search.
This however has no effect whatsoever on the display of the search hits. The user's
permissions are always checked before the search results are shown.
Show search tabs
Search tabs are links beneath the search field which are configured for
special searches, e.g. search for users. With the setting "Show search tabs",
search tabs that have already been defined will be shown in the browser.
Enable creation of search tabs
With this setting, the link "Tab options" will be shown in the browser,
which allows users to create new tabs.
Tabs created in the "Default settings", which is only accessible by
administrators, are available to all portal users. In the "Personal settings",
the tabs are only available to the user who created them.
Enter a title for the new search tab. In the search field you can search for
search configurations, for which the current user has sufficient permission,
across the entire portal. To do that click on
"Search". Furthermore, search configurations from the current application
can be activated by selecting the corresponding control box. With the
setting "Floating arrangment", the results will be arranged next to one another.
If individual tabs have been created, these will be shown beneath the search
field. If you click on a tab, the search configuration configured for it
will be used for the search.
Enable moving of search tabs
With this setting, the order of the tabs in the list, which is reached via the
link "Tab options", can be modified.
Drag the tab using this
symbol to the
desired position. The following applies: the higher a tab is in the list, the
further it will be shown to the left in the browser.
Show search suggestions
Here, you can decide whether search suggestions
should be made available or not.
Result options / Show result list in
Select the table where the search results should be shown here.
Click on search result
With this option, the content of a hit will be shown on a main page
of the application.
With this option, the content of a hit will be shown in a tooltip.
||You will also reach this dialog if you select the "Search" action
for a completely normal button. In this case, you must put together all
elements that are required for the search. Among others, you will
require an empty group for showing the results. Therefore, group an
element of your choice and then drag it out of the grouping onto an
empty position on the workspace.
