I am just starting to come up to speed on Quest’s Web parts. I did not find an existing discussion that covered my topic.
If there is such an existing discussion please point me to it.
I am running in a SP 2007 environment that uses Quest Web parts version 5.2
This question has to do with the qListView Web part.
A SearchedFields sub-field of interest is currently set up to handle single value selection specifications. This works correctly when a simple selection specifier (such as “1” w/o the quote marks) is entered. This selection being set up by (a) selecting from the operator pull-down the “Exclude from search” option and (b) entering “1” in the comparison value field.
I would like to change the SearchedFields sub-field entry definition so that I can enter a more complex search string. The new string could, for example, specify that entries with corresponding sub-field values of either “1” or “2” are to be selected.
I edited the desired sub-field within SearchFields and set the Enable Multi Choice option to “on”.
When I exited out of the edit environemnt, the simple selection still worked. The help information for the qListView object seems to indicate that a multi-choice search string should be of the form “a or b”. When my selection specification is of the form “1 or 2” (with or w/o the quote marks) I get back no results. There are records in the list being processed whose sub-field value is either a 1 or a 2. I presume that the selection is failing because the selection syntax is incorrect.
If the correct syntax for a multi-choice search string has already been documented, please point me to that documentation. Otherwise, if someone could tell me what the syntax should look like I would be very grateful.
