A convenient tool for setting up a date filter is a must-have function for a business application when working with lists. The Xafari platform includes a ready-to-use visual control allowing specification of any date range for filtering data in a List View in a XAF applicaton.
The date range for the filter can be defined by selecting the start date and the end date directly. In addition to this method it is possible to quickly select such periods as the current year, the current quarter, the current month, the week orthe day. It is possible to combine multiple selections too.
This control supports the use of the time period as a whole, without the need to specify the start and end dates too.
In addition to the above use options, it is possible to configure a filter to extract the values related to all the dates from the beginning of the specified period till the current moment.
