An overview of all entered persons can be displayed with.
The list can be sorted on up to three columns at the same time. The first chosen column is the primary sort column, indicated by the black arrow (up or down, depending on the sorting direction). The secondary column has a lighter colored arrow, the tertiary column an even lighter arrow.
Sorting can be adjusted in different ways:
To show a person in the main window there are three possibilities:
There is a function to search the list of persons.
Select the desired search strategy by clicking the relevant bullet and entering the search text. If desired, you can search with wildcards and/or case sensitivity.
When searching by ID number (where wildcards and case sensitivity are obviously irrelevant) a maximum of one match will be found.
Searching by name searches for a person whose full name (including patronymic) matches the specified search text.
The general search function can be used to search in all table columns.
When searching with wildcards, the specified pattern must completely match.
When searching without wildcards, a partial match is sufficient.
The first match is selected in the list of people and with and you can search further until you find the desired one person has been found.
Which columns are visible can be set via on the toolbar.
The order of the columns can be adjusted by clicking on a column name and dragging it to the desired location.
When working with a large database, it can be useful to temporarily shorten the list by filtering the persons. A dialog box appears via on the toolbar:
With the check boxes on the left hand side you can select which items are active.
Next you can enter the filter criteria.
If desired, filtering can be done using wildcards and/or case sensitivity.
When filtering with wildcards, the specified pattern must completely match.
When filtering without wildcards, a partial match is sufficient.
At the bottom of the table you can see whether filtering is active: it will say something like 540/9788 persons.
When you close the program, the filtering is not remembered.
A wildcard allows flexible searches:
