Filter in trayicon

 

The search/filter is also available from the trayicon. Right-click on the Remote Desktop Manager trayicon and select Filter.

 

Boolean Filter

 

Here a few implementation notes for the Boolean filter:

 

We use the C# nomenclature (&& for AND, || for OR)

Evaluated left-to-right

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

 

Examples (this will work)

 

Boise && Laptop

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)
