Custom ovs

Hi All, @Fred K, @Stefan Krauth, Former Member

I have created custom ovs as shown in below images.

when i was searching for particular record irrespective of case it was not working so i posted the question in scn(Help in Custom ovs) and followed the steps mention by Former Member and it's working fine.

When i create new entry for ovs it save data in cap's even though i enter data in small case this is because i have taken data type "ID" to make case insensitive search. But my client wants to save data the way he/she has given.

when i search for the record by putting "*". search is not working.

I change it to "contains pattern" as shown in below image even though it not working.

I have following things to be done

1) I want to make the search irrespective case.

2) Data should be save the way it has given( for this i have taken other data type "Language independent..". If take this data type case insensitive search is not working.)

3) I want to search record by putting "*" i.e "Lob*" .

Could you please help me.

Hi Quddus:

Here is a document explaing how to use custom queries:

How custom queries work on OWL

The (for you) important bit is about the "basic find" and the "SearchText" field binding at the end of chapter 1.1 (chapter 1.2 is strangely missing).

Apply that part to your OVS (you might need to modify the OVS to use a custom query though) and it will solve your placeholder search issue.

Best regards,
