How to Use Wild-card Filter Support in NatTable [message #1706644] Fri, 28 August 2015 11:27 Go to next message

Dear All,

I Created a nat table with the filter row header and use the filter list and DefaultGlazedListsFilterStrategy like below

// build the filter strategy to filter the table data
DefaultGlazedListsFilterStrategy<Object> filterStrategy = new DefaultGlazedListsFilterStrategy<Object>(
filterList, IColumnPropertyAccessor
configRegistry);

// Configure the regular expression filter on Column
configRegistry.registerConfigAttribute(
FilterRowConfigAttributes.TEXT_MATCHING_MODE,
TextMatchingMode.REGULAR_EXPRESSION, DisplayMode.NORMAL, 5) ;

but when i filter with the pattern "*abc", the filter is not working, it is not giving the result with name as expected [for example: expectation here is filter should provide the filterList with the data like xyzabc, pqrabcty].

so how to make it possible?

Thank you

Regards
Shashi

I think the label you are registering the TEXT_MATCHING_MODE for is wrong. It should be

FilterRowDataLayer.FILTER_ROW_COLUMN_LABEL_PREFIX + 5

instead of only 5

Thank you for your kind response.

one more problem is that the filter works only for the "*" delimiter because i register only '*' delimiter.

configRegistry.registerConfigAttribute(
FilterRowConfigAttributes.TEXT_DELIMITER, "*");

but it is not working for other regular expression.

For example : if Enter ^123 [Any character except 123 (negation)] should display, but the filter is not working as expected in this case.

if i do register like
configRegistry.registerConfigAttribute(
FilterRowConfigAttributes.TEXT_DELIMITER, "^");

here the filter behavior is same for both * and ^ but it should not be , so how to achieve the filter should work for regular expressions correctly.

Thank you

TEXT_DELIMITER is used to be able add several filter conditions, e.g. to support an AND condition. In our examples this is done by registering the & sign. I don't understand why you are using a delimiter for your use case.

Your regular expression is not correct. If you want to show everything except 123 it should be ^(123)

Thank you Dirk for your valuable input.

If i didn't use TEXT_DELIMITER the filter will not work and throw the following
Warning.

org.eclipse.nebula.widgets.nattable.extension.glazedlists.filterrow.DefaultGlazedListsFilterStrategy applyFilter
WARNING: Error on applying a filter: Dangling meta character '*' near index 0


if i add the TEXT_DELIMITER for "*" the warning wont throw and filter work
only for this * sign not for others.

Even i check for some columns in the example _6031_GlazedListsFilterExample

in this example also the behavior same as above.

is it required any extra configuration, if not why it is not working?

Thank you

Regards
Shashi

Maybe you need to get familiar with regular expressions first.
https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/essential/regex/index.html

The * is a meta character in regular expressions for the quantifier "zero or more times". The exception tells you that you are using a quantifier without an expression where the quantifier should be applied to.

The regular expression you are looking for is (.*)abc, which means "any character, zero or more times, end with abc"

If you want this to be simplified somehow, you might want to implement a converter for the filter row that transforms the user input '*' to a data input '(.*)' and vice versa
