Topic:   Any column search function

Just finished our trial of v5 including MySQL transfer. All looks good, including a massive speed increase when switching from Jet on the NAS drive, to the MySQL server.
Only thing we are waiting for is the 'Any column' search function, and of course the official release of v5. Any news on these 2 subjects?

'Any Column' search function.

Click 'Any' column header and a small menu pops up with sort/filter options.

We decided that clicking the column header for filtering was quicker that having a load of search boxes or a myriad of menu options to select columns.

The search box at the bottom of the window for part number and description was going to be removed but a few people wanted it back just because they'd got used to it being there.

Official release date?
You've got me there. To be honest we were just kind of hoping to silently slide from one version to the other without making any big announcement.

We respectfully completely disagree with your decision.

You have replaced a simple search box with a load of filters and a myriad of options to select from.
Removing the search box would have been a complete disaster.

So, the collective decision from our little user group is that we will wait for the 'Any column' search before upgrading.

On the other hand, having a silent slide over seems to be a brilliant idea :-)

@Thomas. Are you talking about the column header click/Menu? or the single search box at the bottom of the window?

So how would 'you' make an 'any column' search feature?
Would you have one box that searched for the given text in ALL columns?
Would you have one text input box for the search query and a list of (30+) checkboxes to define which columns to apply the search to?
Or would you have 30 little boxes? one for each column?
