Feature How to use
List with columns showing various kinds of information for E-Dictionary entries To open an entry in the list: 

Double-click an entry (or select an entry and press <Enter>) to open the E-Dictionary Entry window. Use the entry window to copy any available value or graphic to paste into a record, workform, constant data, or text string.

You must open the E-Dictionary Entry window to be able to copy information. You cannot copy from the list.

See a list and description of columns given in default order.

To customize the list display (temporarily):
  • Sort order
    • To re-sort by another column, click the column heading. The list re-sorts by values in the column, in ascending order (alphabetic or numeric) with entries that have no value appearing first.
    • An arrow identifies the sorting column; for example: Unicode ascending order sort
  • Sort direction - To reverse sort order, click the column heading for the column that sorts the list. The arrow reverses order to indicate descending order: Unicode descending order sort
  • Column size - To change column size, point to the right border of the column heading. When the pointer becomes Column Size Pointer, click and hold to drag the border.
  • Column order - To change the order of a column, click, hold, and drag the column heading to a new position.

 Note: The client does not retain changes you make to the list display once you close the list.
