Filter Panel and Filter Editor

  • Close Filter button - closes the filter panel and removes the filter;
  • Enable Filter button - temporarily enables and disables the current filter;
  • MRU Filter button - invokes the list of most recently used filters. This list can also be opened by clicking the filter text within the panel;
  • Edit Filter button - opens the filter editor allowing end-users to build complex filter criteria;
