  • Re-ordering clauses in FilterBuilder

    SmartClient Version: v11.1p_2018-03-28/Pro Deployment (built 2018-08-04)

    We persist the state of FilterBuilders to use as templates for other FilterBuilders. Occasionally our users want to update the templates with new clauses, but because the templates can sometimes be large and complex, they want to add clauses to specific places to 'fit' with other (similar) fields for visual purposes. At the moment they have to add new clauses to the end of the filter section that the clause applies to, and there doesn't seem to be a way of re-ordering a filter section without deleting it and re-creating in the 'right' order.

    Is filter clause 're-ordering' supported in FilterBuilder?

    There is no built-in UI for this. The simplest approach would be Feature Sponsorship to add reorder controls. Other approaches would be using a stack of FilterBuilders with your own reorder controls, or subclassing FilterBuilder to add them by placing them next to the AutoChildren it creates.
