Adding an "Advanced Search" interface to any List or Web Part in no time -- with the new on-the-fly Filters

We just introduced an outstanding new feature to FilterZen: the Dynamic Ad-Hoc Filters that give you a full-fledged Advanced Search user interface for any connected Web Part, and fully pre-populated with applicable fields for any SharePoint List:

Previously, content managers, site designers or admins pre-configured individual filters with the proper settings for their end-users, but those had no way of customizing these. While this is still a valid use-case for many projects, with the new Dynamic Ad-Hoc Filters, end users can arrange and combine their own filters on the fly to search the List, Data View or other Web Part in a way that suits them in their individual, current situation.

  • End-users can AND/OR combine multiple filters on the fly.
  • The appropriate rich editors (date controls and people pickers) are shown when a field is selected, without a page post-back.
  • End users can also search for "any field", for example "show me records where any field contains iron".
  • Setting this up is a breeze, and admins can pre-define which fields and operators are allowed:

List Filtering: Highlighting Partial Matches in Search Results

Just a quick update: users of FilterZen, the ultimate Filter Web Part for SharePoint 2010 and 2007, can now greatly improve the end-user usability with a simple check-box option we just newly introduced: highlighting of filter values (ie. search phrases) in the connected consumer List View "search results":

The highlighting needs to be explicitly enabled in the FilterZen Web Part settings tool-pane (in the Interactive Filters section, see above-right screenshot) and of course you can fully re-style and customize this using CSS: simply use the span.rox-hilitematch selector.
