The Column Filter is disabled when Display UI hint is set to Hide (Doc ID 2722880.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 11, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle JDeveloper - Version to [Release 12c]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In an ADF Table, the Filter of a column attribute is disabled during the runtime when the Display UI hints of that attribute is set to 'Hide'. As a result, users are unable to filter those attributes which are set to Hide. The display property was set to 'Hide' in order to discard those attributes from the the list of attributes displayed when clicked on 'Add Fields' button on the Advanced Search UI of a View Object.

For example a table contains FirstName and LastName columns. The following actions describe the issue:

1. In the navigator under Data Controls you expand AppModuleDataControl, double
click ManageColumns1 click on Source tab and notice FirstName and LastName
attibutes contain the display UI hint 'Hide'.
2. Notice that other attributes do not have the display UI hint 'Hide'
3. The jspx page is Run
4. When page renders notice that FirstName and LastName columns do not have column Filters. Notice that the other columns without the 'Hide' hint have
    column Filters.

VOs in Data Control with display hints exhibit the behavior for example:

 Help text from the UI Hints Tab

Element: Display
Description: Choose whether or not the attribute should be displayed. You can
use this hint to limit the client UI to display only the desired attributes.
If you hide the attribute, then any values associated with the remaining
control hints will be ignored.

In 12c using the Hide attribute removes the Filter text box above the column. This did not occur in 11g.
