Today’s post is brought to you by a new request to the Exchange this week. They wanted to be able to quickly filter a list of objects without having to open a dialog to do it.
For a dynamic browsing of databases with a lot of objects it would be nice to have a textbox where you can filter the current object by name (may be in memory) without using a dialog
The filter dialog is powerful, but does require more than a couple of clicks…
Instead, they want to immediately type in their filter.
Just Look Down
Or if you want to get picky…
There’s Another Difference Here
We’re not re-querying the database once you apply the filter. This is doing client-side filtering – so it should be pretty fast.
But Wait, What is the ‘Schema Browser?’
I’m so glad you asked that question.
