Description

This ticket is somewhat related to ticket:962 but more specifically address filtering on columns with enumeration type annotations.

When filtering an item list based on columns for enumeration type annotations a selection list is used. The selection list allows you to select one alternative that you want to filter on; only matching items are displayed. A common scenario for enumeration type annotations involves wanting to display items that match any of a number of alternatives or does not match specific alternative(s).

For these reasons it makes more sense to have regular input boxes for filtering based on columns with enumeration type annotations. It would, however, be useful to be able to see the annotation alternatives even though you can input your own search string. This would require a completely new filter input box interface. Perhaps an icon that when clicked produces a small pop-up window that display the alternatives? Alternatively, when you start typing, the matching alternatives are displayed (name completion)?
