Filters in the browser
In a portal that was created with the Event4Teams portal template, the Organization menu already contains the Telephone book application. A dependency has already been defined here. If a department is selected in the Department drop-down list, then the free layout table that displays the contacts will be filtered accordingly.
Configuration in the Applications module
On the Dependencies tab of the properties dialog of the free layout table, the "Department" dependency is in the "Selected" column. Click on "Edit dependency" to open a dialog where the dependency settings can be edited.
In the properties of the dependency, the filter is defined to trigger when the onchange event occurs in the "Department" drop-down list, meaning that a department is selected in the browser. Click here for information about how the triggering control can be defined. The filter can be defined in the Filter area. This filter is applied to the date in the table when the event is triggered.
