Behavior QuickFind on LayOut different from PatternCount Filter in Portal.

Post

Hello everybody,

 

I think I have a “black spot” in my mind.

 

I have a global field on my layout. (called; gFilter). I use this global field for two things:

         
  1. I use this global field in a Quick Find on my LayOut and at the same time
  2.      
  3. Use this global field for filtering my portal ( X relation).

 

This way the Portal has the same records as the LayOut.

 

(I use this global field on three fields in the LayOut and three fields on the portal - the same fields)

 

All worked fine, until I saw that my Portal has more records then the LayOut.

 

What I found out is the following:

If I have a description field that contains the following values:

 

First record description field:         First Computer

Second record description field :    Second Discount

 

And I type “Co” in my global field (gFilter)

 

The QuickFind returns one record with “Computer”

The Portal Filer returns both values.

 

So, the QuickFind only recognizes “Co” at the start of a word (also if it is the second or third word), and with PatterCount every “Pattern” is recognized. 

 

But I can’t figure out how to perform a find on my LayOut with the same PatternCount.

 

Think I have a black out.

 

Thanks in advance,
