Subject [jira] Updated: (DIRSTUDIO-335) DIT Quick Search
Date Tue, 10 Mar 2009 21:59:50 GMT


Stefan Seelmann updated DIRSTUDIO-335:

    Attachment: QuickSearch.png

Now there is a line with some input fields in the LDAP Browser view. You need to select an
entry in the browser first, which is used as search base. Then you could input attribute and
value and select the operator, this creates a simple filter in the background. With the next
button it is possible to toggle the search scope, either one-level or subtree. The last button
is used to lauch the search, however it is easier to just press Enter in one of the input
fields. The other search parameters (limits, referrals and alias handling) are derived from
the connection settings.

The resulting search with name "Quick Search" is displayed directly under the selected seach
base entry. It is possible to edit the properties of the search and to copy/paste this quick
search to the permanent searches. Other actions like export or refresh are also working.

It is possible to show/hide the Quick Search line using the option in the view menu or using
Ctrl+F. The Quick Search line is disabled if not exactly one entry (the search base) is selected.

I'm not sure if it would be better to use simple text fields instead of the combos. Suggestions?

> It would be very helpful if the DIT browser had a quick search in the top of the view.
The quich search should consist of 3 fields:
> Field 1 should be the attribute to seach for (text box that autocompletes attribute names)
> Field 2 should be the evaluation ( a drop down list with =, !(=), <=, >=, ~=)
> Field 3 should be the attribute value (text box that autocompletes previous values)
> The fields should be placed in a single line with a search button to the far right.
> Its a feature that exists in JXplorer, that would be nice to have in Directory Studio,
which I find to be superior in almost any other aspect. But if I have to search for many differenct
attributes with different values, then its a lot more timeconsuming to use the New Search
Dialog in Directory Studio
