Kalipso 5.0


Kalipso - Using - Find
The tool find is similar to the ones that you find on every application.
However, Kalipso has more features associated with this function. The search tool allows not only to search for the elements you want, but also to identify where they are being used (forms, reports, etc.).
To use this option you can use three ways:
  • By clicking on the menu Edit > Find
  • Pressing the shortcut "Control + F"
  • Pressing the button "Check Usage" in the options where it is available.
So, when you use it the following window appears on the bottom of the screen:
When you click the "Find" option, the window appears with two blank fields to allow you to place what you want. The first step is to define the type of research to be carried out. The other field is where to place the word (or words) to be searched.
On the other hand, when using the "check Usage" option, as it is a specific feature, the type field appears pre-filled as well as the search field.
  • Type - Choose the type of object to search. It can be one of:
    • Generic
    • Form
    • Control
    • Variable
      • Global Variable
      • Local Variable
      • Temporary Variable
      • Linked Project Variable
    • Action Set
      • Global Action Set
      • Local Action Set
    • Multi-Language Text
    • Action (Name)
    • Comment (Action)
    • Linked Project / Component
    • Action ID
  • Text - Field for entering the word (or words) to search for. As part of the use of this functionality in the project, Kalipso keeps the search history carried out.
Below you can use a set of filters that help refine your search to better find the results you want. Thus, they allow:
  • Current Form - Perform the search in the active form.
  • Actions Name - Perform the search by the actions name
  • Starts With - When performing the search identifies all areas where it starts with...
  • Only Actions - It only searches in the actions that are used in the project.
  • Actions Content - Searches only on the content of project actions.
  • Whole Word - It performs the search considering the entered word complete (and not parts)
  • Ignore Comments - Performs the search by excluding the word (or words) in the comments.
When performing the search you can choose two views to present the results:
  • Tree View - The results are presented as a tree (see example 1 below).
  • Path View - The results are presented as a path to the location of the object (see example 2 below).
Example 1 - Tree View
Example 2 - Path View
As you can see in both views, the searched word, in this case "Label", is highlighted in yellow to be more easily identified in the results.
In the area where the results appear, is a list where two information about the search are presented:
  • Location - Where the object is located
  • Value - The value attributed to the searched object
