Keyboard Shortcut

 

Use the keyboard shortcut CTRL+F to quickly have access to the Search/Filter control. This can be disabled in File - Options - User Interface - Keyboard.

You can set the focus back on the Navigation Pane by using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+L, this also can be disable in the options.

 

Boolean Filter

 

Here a few implementation notes for the Boolean filter:

 

We use the C# nomenclature (&& for AND, || for OR)

Evaluated left-to-right

No parentheses matching

Double-quotes (") are not required or removed, they are part of the text filter, do not use them unless you are looking for a double-quote.

Leading/trailing white-spaces are trimmed

 

Examples (this will work)

 

Boise && Laptop

Boise&&Laptop

Boise  &&  Laptop

Baton Rouge || Boise && Laptop

Laptop && Baton Rouge

 

Examples (this will not work as expected)

 

Laptop && "Baton Rouge"

oWill work but filter for the string "Baton Rouge" and not the string Baton Rouge

 

Laptop && (Baton Rouge || Boise)

oWill work but filter for Laptop and the string (Baton Rouge || Boise)
