Tile Filter

The tile filter is a child definition to a detail screen field with an edit type of list tile view. A tile filter defines the property within the object type being listed upon which the items listed in the parent field can be filtered. This includes both manual, user defined filters as well as barcode scan filters.

A tile filter targets an object property within the object type being listed by the parent list tile view field. For this property, the tile filter then defines whether or not the user can filter on this property manually, and whether or not scan filtering is enabled for this value within the list tile view.

Tile Filter Attributes

  • Object Property: This attributes contains the target path to the object property for the tile filter.
  • Allow Filter: This attribute specifies whether or not the user can select this property from the list of object properties displayed in the filter dialog on the Agentry Client.
  • Scan Filter: This attribute specifies whether or not the value scanned in by the client device’s barcode scanner should be compared to the value of the property targeted by the tile filter. It is considered a best practice to set this attribute to true for only one tile filter within the same list tile view field, but this is not a requirement.
