28    <description>&lt;h4&gt;Visible/Hidden columns&lt;/h4&gt;&#xD;
29&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;Hide/unhide&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
30Select those column names, in either Visible columns or Hidden columns, that should be moved to the other listbox. Click then on one of the direction arrows between the listboxes, left to make columns visible or right to hide columns.&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
31&lt;imp&gt;Column names that are bold and marked with &lt;/imp&gt;&lt;b&gt;x&lt;/b&gt;&lt;imp&gt; can't be hidden.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/imp&gt;&#xD;
32&#xD;
33&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;Change the order&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
34The order between visible columns can be changed to fit different purpose.&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
35A selected column is moved with the up and down arrows, located to the left of the listbox. The column is moved one step at the time/click.&lt;/p&gt;&#xD;
36&#xD;
37&lt;h4&gt;Presets of visible columns&lt;/h4&gt;&#xD;
38Choose a preset of column configuration from the dropdown list to save clicks and time.&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
39Beside predefined presets there are also possibility for userdefined presets, where users can create their own presets.&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
40&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;Predefined&lt;/b&gt;&#xD;
41&lt;ul&gt;&#xD;
42&lt;li&gt;&#xD;
43  &lt;mnu&gt;All&lt;/mnu&gt;&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
44  All columns will be visible in a specific order.&#xD;
45&lt;/li&gt;&#xD;
46&lt;li&gt;&#xD;
47  &lt;mnu&gt;Required&lt;/mnu&gt;&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
48  Only columns that can't be hidden (marked with &lt;b&gt;x&lt;/b&gt;) will be visible.&#xD;
49&lt;/li&gt;&#xD;
50&lt;li&gt;&#xD;
51  &lt;mnu&gt;Current&lt;/mnu&gt;&lt;/td&gt;&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
52  The last saved column setup.&#xD;
53&lt;/li&gt;&#xD;
54&lt;li&gt;&#xD;
55  &lt;mnu&gt;Default&lt;/mnu&gt;&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
56  Columns that are most typical for the list will be visible.&#xD;
57&lt;/li&gt;&#xD;
58&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&#xD;
59&#xD;
60&lt;p&gt;&#xD;
61&lt;b&gt;Userdefined&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
62New presets for different purpose can be created/saved in following way. Click on the &lt;btn&gt;Save&amp;nbsp;as...&lt;/btn&gt; button, a popup window will appear.&lt;br&gt; Give the new preset a proper &lt;req&gt;name&lt;/req&gt; and press then &lt;btn&gt;Ok&lt;/btn&gt;(&lt;btn&gt;Cancel&lt;/btn&gt; to abort).&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
63Userdefined presets can be manged from &lt;mnu&gt;Manage...&lt;/mnu&gt; in the -view/presets- dropdown list on the listpage.&#xD;

67    <name>Edit help texts</name>
68    <description>&lt;h4&gt;Properties&lt;/h4&gt;&#xD;
69&lt;ul&gt;&#xD;
70&lt;li&gt;&#xD;
71  &lt;req&gt;Title&lt;/req&gt;&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
72  The helptext's title. It should be a relevant name/title that gives a hint what the text is about. &lt;imp&gt;Maximum length of the text is 255 characters&lt;/imp&gt;. The title will be displayed at the top of the popup-window that the text is viewed in.&#xD;
73&lt;/li&gt;&#xD;
74&lt;li&gt;&#xD;
75  &lt;req&gt;External ID&lt;/req&gt;&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
76  The id is used by the webclient to identify the help text. &lt;imp&gt;It should consist of few explaining words separated with '.'&lt;/imp&gt;. Many helptexts' external IDs are already specified in the webclient, it's therefore recommended visit the part of the webclient where the help text should be placed and look for already existing IDs/help links.&#xD;
77&lt;/li&gt;&#xD;
78&lt;li&gt;&#xD;
79  &lt;ui&gt;Help text&lt;/ui&gt;&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
80  The whole helptext should be written in this textarea. Click on the magnifying glass to get a larger typing window. The editing is in plain text, but the help text itself will be HTML-decoded before displayed and it's therefore recommended to use basic HTML-tags to make the text more readable. There are some tools, explained later in this text, that can be used to simplify the editing process.&#xD;
81&lt;/li&gt;&#xD;
82&lt;/ul&gt;&#xD;
83Save the helptext item by pressing the &lt;btn&gt;Save&lt;/btn&gt; - button or press &lt;btn&gt;Cancel&lt;/btn&gt; to discard the changes.&#xD;
84&#xD;
85&lt;h4&gt;Editing tools&lt;/h4&gt;&#xD;
86The toolbar for text editing contains following buttons that are listed in the table below. &#xD;
87Mark the text that shall be between the start- and end tag and click on the toolbutton for the wanted function.&#xD;
88&lt;table width=100% border="1" cellpadding="2" style="border-collapse:collapse;"&gt;&#xD;

246    <name>Filter</name>
247    <description>By using the filters it's possible to limit what the item lists should contain, locate specific list items, perform data filtration and more. Details may vary slightly from page to page but the general usage operations are well conserved.&#xD;
248&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
249&lt;h4&gt;Clear filter&lt;/h4&gt;&#xD;
250The filter can be cleared any time by clicking on &lt;mnu&gt;Clear filter&lt;/mnu&gt; in the &lt;mnu&gt;view/preset&lt;/mnu&gt; dropdown list.&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
251&lt;h4&gt;Input Formats&lt;/h4&gt;&#xD;
252The format that the filter value should be in depends on what kind of column that should be filtered.&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
253Simple textfields such as names, descriptions, titles etc. take any textstring as an input. The filter is &lt;imp&gt;incasesensitive&lt;/imp&gt; and the value can contain wildcards for textstrings to expand the conditions(see &lt;a href="#wildcards"&gt;Wildcards&lt;/a&gt; below).&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
254The filter value for date fields shall be in the format &lt;imp&gt;YYYY-MM-DD&lt;/imp&gt;, e.g. 2005-03-05 for the 5th of March year 2005.&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
255The columns with a dropdown list as a filter field can only be filtered with one of the values availble in the list.&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
256Boolean fields have three options that they can be filtered on: true, false and any(both true and false).&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
257The columns in number format can be filtered with any float number with '.' as a decimalpoint. The filter value can contain &lt;a href="#wildcards"&gt;wildcards&lt;/a&gt; for numbers to expand the conditions.&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
258&lt;h4&gt;Operators&lt;/h4&gt;&#xD;
259Can be used to define different limits for a column to be filtered on. These operators shall be typed first in the filter field, before the value to filter the column on. &#xD;
260&lt;table width=100% border="1" cellpadding="2" style="border-collapse:collapse;"&gt;&#xD;
261&lt;tr&gt;&#xD;
262  &lt;th&gt;Operator&lt;/th&gt;&#xD;
263  &lt;th&gt;Name&lt;/th&gt;&#xD;
264  &lt;th&gt;Description/result&lt;/th&gt;&#xD;
265&lt;/tr&gt;&#xD;
266&lt;tr&gt;&#xD;
267  &lt;td&gt;=&lt;/td&gt;&#xD;
268  &lt;td&gt;Equals to&lt;/td&gt;&#xD;
269  &lt;td&gt;Values that are equal to the filter value are displayed in the list.&lt;/td&gt;&#xD;

301It is possible to use the wildcard '%' to allow any character(s) in a value(e.g.  bas% will give all values that start with 'bas' indepedently what characters that follows. The wildcard can be used in more then one place in a textstring at the same time.&#xD;
302&lt;br&gt;&#xD;
303&lt;h4&gt;Presets&lt;/h4&gt;&#xD;
304It's possible to save a filter settings as a preset. This is very usefull if a filter will be used more then once and especially when there are more then one column that are included in the filter too. A filter is saved as a preset by clicking on &lt;mnu&gt;Save as&lt;/mnu&gt; in the &lt;mnu&gt;view/preset&lt;/mnu&gt; dropdown list. The filter can then be used by choosing the preset's name from the same dropdown list as above. If a preset not is usefull anymore or it should be deleted for some other reason, this can be done by &lt;mnu&gt;Manage&lt;/mnu&gt; also located in the dropdown list.</description>
