Given an entity that contains a range, this search field is used to find all entities whose range overlaps with the specified value.
Example: given an entity ‘Festival’ that has a ‘Start’ and an ‘End’ date, which Festivals take place at day X?
Datatypes supported by this search field are: Integer, Currency, Decimal, DateTime, Float, AutoNumber, Long.
You can specify whether the range boundaries are inclusive or exclusive using the Lower- and Upper bound operator.
The caption is the text that is shown in front of the actual search field. This is a translatable text. See Translatable Texts.
|Normal||The search field is visible and editable by the end user.|
|Hidden||The search field is hidden and is only there to selectively display objects in the grid.|
|Read-only||The search field is visible but not editable by the end user.|
The default value is the initial value for the search field. In the case of a normal search field, this value can then be edited by the end user. In the case of a hidden or read-only search field the value is fixed.
