Vizlib Filter Properties - Interactivity

Interactivity settings provide you with a set of options to control user interaction in Vizlib Filter.


Selection Mode

Selection mode allows you to disable Read Only mode in Vizlib Filter by choosing Allow Selections (Figure 1). You can enable a Quick Select function, and choose one of 3 selection modes:

  • Multiselect - you can select multiple values at once. 
  • Sheet level always one selected - you can select and deselect 1 value at a time. If the default selection (see General Options) is undefined, no values are selected for the initial state. 
  • Filter level always one selected - 1 value is always selected (no de-selection). If the default selection is defined manually (see General Options), then the first value in the field is automatically selected for the initial state. 

There are also options to Enable Drag Select and Scroll Top After Selection.

Enabling Quick Select displays a confirmation window in listbox mode for a user to complete their selection (Figure 2).

You can also enable default behavioural settings Lock Default(s) after selection, Set Default(s) when cleared, Set Default(s) on open, and Run Actions after selection
