Welcome to the Protogrid Developer Wiki. A place to gather all the documentation and tips&tricks regarding Protogrid.


Protogrid provides a simple 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 restrict the display of Cards based on certain field values (e.g. categories or status), our Filter Fields might be the better choice.

Please note that the search currently does not provide boolean operators like AND, OR, NOT. A Google-like search engine is planned for a future release.

Single text values can be entered straightforward. If you would like to search for word combinations enclose your search with double quotes.

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 supported because of ambiguities with time zones. Please use our dedicated Date Filters instead.
