User Defined Column Preferences
The Readerware User Columns Preferences tab is used to define additional
columns in the Readerware database. These can be used for whatever
information you want.
Once activated the columns can be added to the table
view, and will be automatically displayed in the detail
view. You can also perform searches on user defined columns.
To activate a column, check the Active check box.
the Column Title, this value will be displayed as the column
header in the table view, as the tag name in the detail view, and as the search choice
in the search bar.
Select the column type:
- Test Field - This is a single line text field that can contain any alphanumeric
- Whole Number Field - This is a single line field that can only contain whole numbers.
The contents of this field will be displayed right aligned. When sorting on this column, Readerware
performs a numeric sort.
- Yes/No (Checkbox) field - A boolean field that can contain a Yes or No value. This field
behaves like all Readerware boolean fields. In the table view it displays as Yes or No, in edit mode
you can change the value by selecting from a list. In the detail view this field is displayed as a checkbox.
When adding a new field you can use the Bulk Editor to set an
appropriate default value. For
example when defining a new whole number field you might want to set a default value of 0.
To remove a column, clear the Active checkbox. Note that this does
not remove the column or the data entered from the database, it simply
removes it from display.
