Protogrid provides a powerful search functionality in tableviews and selection/dropdown lists. It is useful to find a Card for which characteristic text is known (e.g. a product name mentioned in an advertising text). If you want to comfortably restrict the display of Cards based on certain field values (e.g. categories or status), our Filter Fields might be the better choice.

Single text values can be entered straightforward. If you would like to search for word combinations enclose your search with double quotes (as you would do in Google).

Searching for Numbers

Searches for number values do not require any special handling.

Searching for Date and Time Entries

Searching freely for date and time is not recommended because of ambiguities with time zones. Usage of our dedicated Date Filters might be the better choice.
