Objects are filtered as you type in the name. Filtering is case-insensitive by default, however you can also use case-sensitive filters by activating the corresponding check-box in the General options.


Note:The filter function is not supported if you are using No Folders layout.

To filter objects in the Online Browser:

1.If you haven't done that already, select a layout other than the "No Folders" layout. For example, click ic_layout_select to select the "Folders" layout.

2.Click the Filter Folder contents ic_filter icon in the toolbar or select a database object and press Ctrl+Alt+F to activate filtering. Filter icons appear next to all folders that appear in the currently selected layout.


3.Click the filter icon that is next to the folder you want to filter. Select the desired filtering option from the context menu that appears.


4.Next to the folder, the icon for the chosen filter type appears with an empty field next to it.


5.Expand the folder you are filtering to display the objects it contains.

6.In the field, enter the string you want to search for. The results are adjusted as you type.
