It is possible to apply a filter in the Navigation Pane tree view by typing some characters in the filter box. The filter is applied using the specified settings in the application Filter options.
If the Navigation Pane tree view is hidden, a dialog will appear with the filtered content.
The search/filter location can be select in the Filter options of the application.
Select the ellipsis button to display the options.
The filter expression is matched against fields as selected in the filter options such as:
•Various Contact information fields (choose them in the sub menu)
It's possible to exclude results by choosing to display entries that match certain criteria:
•Session types (credentials, script tools, VPN, etc.)
•If the session is marked as a Favorites
A search by types can be executed to include Sessions, Data Entries, Contacts, Documents, Credentials Entries, VPNs, Macros/Scripts/Tools, Show Sync.
The Search Options will offer you the possibility to include the shortcuts, the sub connections, show only the favorites and/or make the search case sensitive.
Use the keyboard shortcut CTRL+F to quickly have access to the Search/Filter control. This can be disabled in File - Options - User Interface - Keyboard.
You can set the focus back on the Navigation Pane by using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+L, this also can be disable in the options.
Filter in trayicon
The search/filter is also available from the trayicon. Right-click on the Remote Desktop Manager trayicon and select Filter.
Here a few implementation notes for the Boolean filter:
•We use the C# nomenclature (&& for AND, || for OR)
•No parentheses matching
•Double-quotes (") are not required or removed, they are part of the text filter, do not use them unless you are looking for a double-quote.
•Leading/trailing white-spaces are trimmed
•Boise && Laptop
•Boise && Laptop
•Baton Rouge || Boise && Laptop
•Laptop && Baton Rouge
Examples (this will not work as expected)
•Laptop && "Baton Rouge"
- Will work but filter for the string "Baton Rouge" and not the string Baton Rouge
•Laptop && (Baton Rouge || Boise)
- Will work but filter for Laptop and the string (Baton Rouge || Boise)
