Selecting items by substring in tree view

Hi,

I was wondering, if there is a way to select item by providing a substring in tree view.

For example you can select items by index or by exact name like item(0) or item("flight").

Can you do something like that item(0).Contains("firm"), that would return a item that contains the string "firm".

I tried this but it didn't work. How can I achieve this? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Hina
  • Hi Hina,



    You can use * and ? wildcard characters for that. For example:



    item("flight*") will get an item that starts with "flight"

    item("*flight") will get an item that ends with "flight"

    item("*flight*") will get an item that contains "flight"



    Asterisk is for n quantity of characters, while ? is for as many characters as symbols (??? will be 3 characters)



    You can find more information in this article.



    Hope it helped!
